Reviews (Excerpts)

- "[...] First Kiss is a powerful emotional read that is hard to put down and even harder to forget once the story has ended. I am dying for the next book to come out [...] Bottom line First Kiss is the type of book I search for, an amazing read that I lose myself in; a romance that I can't forget and a tale that leaves me begging for more." - Danielle M. Perez

- "[...] The last few chapters really kill me. I'm such a sap. Yes there was tears and snot. Jake and his band leave for a European tour. Through everything, Jake can't run from his feelings for Aly. She owns his heart. I can only hope for happier moments for them in the next book. [...]
One of the coolest things about First Kiss is the music included. The lyrics are a part the story. I've heard some of the songs and can't wait to get the soundtrack. My favorite is a duet between Jake and Aly. "
- GloBug

- "[...] And that ending!!! Not what I was expecting at all!! !! I'm anything but patient when it comes to waiting for the sequels of books that I've enjoyed. And First Kiss was definitely a book that I loved. There was no question as to how much I enjoyed Ann Marie Frohoff's writing style and the way in which she portrayed the characters. Being such a huge lover of music and having it woven so perfectly throughout the book was perfect!!" - YA Book Adict

- "This is a great book by a new writer. This book brings back memories and feelings from another time. A good book for mature teens, some sex & drugs, but nothing overtly scandalous. " - Katrina DLR

About the Author

Author Ann Marie Frohoff
Ann Marie ("Annie") Frohoff grew up in sunny Southern California. As a teen and young adult she spent her time frequenting and living in nearly every beachside city up and down the coast. She settled in Hollywood at 19 working in film and TV.

Her wanderlust and propensity to live life out loud has brought her many life experiences many of us only dream about and is reflected in her writing. Always the storyteller, it would be of no surprise to those who grew up with her, that she made the transition into a book and screenplay author.

She is a lover of coffee, wine (too much love), John Hughes flicks, gray areas and anything that stimulates and elevates the senses.

Annie has now also delved into the supernatural fantasy world with her writing partners Shaun Barger and songwriter/musician Matthew Reich. Taking inspiration directly from song lyrics and building an entire realm of vastly complex characters and plot lines; weaving history, fantasy and heavy doses of romance together. You will be kept turning the pages of “The Zodiac Wars: My Gemini” novellas and “Precious Metal: The Prince and the Gypsy” book series. Both series of books are currently in development.
