    One thought on “Feels Like the First Time

    1. Andrea on said:

      How can put into words all the emotions this book stirred in me? It's hard. I laughed a lot Shawn was so sweet and swoon worthy. He was adorkable and wonderfully vulnerable. Hard to find since boys always want to be the strong, macho, cool males. I found Shawn and his devotion for Dawn so refreshingly endeering! This boy fell in love and never lost that sweetness toward her. Boys will be boys and though I'm sure there were plenty of naughty thoughts his focus is just on the fact that he loves he [...]

      Five StarsAnyone who doesn’t appreciate this work has not traveled this path. I received an email from Shawn asking if I’d be interested in giving his book a go. I looked at the title, checked the page and responded, “it’d be at least a month before I could get to it.” But something caught my eye. He drove a Vega which triggered a memory of a past love that didn’t work out. Needless to say, I was curious. As I started to read it, my eyes and brain became heavily invested as all I co [...]

    3. Cherie Magnus on said:

      The book began ok, with a flashback to create tension and suspense that kept me reading on long after I lost interest.At first I couldn't believe a mature man wrote this about himself because it's page after page of adolescent emotions of love, soaring, falling, tears flowing, day dreaming, hoping. It felt like a young adult romance. It's repetitive and too detailed about daily activities but not about more important plot points. It was not logical or understandable why--the crux of the story--D [...]

      "Feels Like the First Time" is a true romance story of Shawn and Dawn. If you grew up in the 70's like I did, this book will really hit home for you. With a well written plot, the book is full of emotions and the ups and downs of romance. I was totally captivated from the beginning to end. Highly recommended for everyone that loves a really good true romance story.This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.

    5. Al on said:

      Any romance novelist out there who is suffering from writers block has a ready-made plot begging to be stolen in Feels Like the First Time. Although you’ll have to rework it a bit to fit genre conventions (specifically, add the female’s point-of-view), the plot would work great. For women who don’t think men are romantic, Shawn Inmon’s “true life love story” will prove that isn’t true. If nothing else, he’s the exception that proves the rule. As much as I liked the love story, I [...]

      This true story by author Shawn Inmon took me way back to a time in my life that I miss dearly. In his book, Feels Like the First Time, memories flooded my way with his descriptive scenes and mention of music that can only be considered classics of an era gone by. From the cover to the very last page, Shawn takes you through the time period of the 60s through the present, while his story of love unfolds.Shawn, meets and falls in love with Dawn Adele when her family moves into the house next door [...]

    7. Moe on said:

      This book is a bittersweet love story that I couldn't put down. I cried real tears, especially when they read their wedding vows to each other. Oops is that giving the story away? Well ok i'll put a "spoiler" warning. I also liked the way the author dedicated the book to his sister. She seemed liked such a wonderful and special person.I rarely give 5 star ratings, and struggled between rating this book 4 or 5 stars. I'd say that this book was 4.5 stars. My only disappointment was that there were [...]

    8. Dawnita on said:

      I love how simple and un presumptuous this story is. It's a beautiful love story. There isn't a rich debonair millionaire or a seductress woman, but there are 2 teenagers who find love and life circumstances are not in their favor. Love will find a way though and it does in a simple but beautiful way.

    9. Debbie on said:

      Wow!!!This is not a romance, at least not a typical one. It is a love story. A true one. One that will touch your heart and take you on a ride of innocence, heartbreak and eventually you to a place of contentment and happiness.I actually picked this book up on accident. I was searching for another book with a similar synopsis but had forgotten the title and I thought this one was it. Even though it wasn't the book I was searching for, I am so glad I found this one.This book was a great trip down [...]

    10. Karla Eibling on said:

      I had such a hard time reading this book. I wanted to just put it down and walk away, but that is not my style. So I struggled through it. The story is a true story that takes place in the 70's between Shawn and his slightly younger neighbor whom he eventually marries. The story is layered in memories and music of that era and that may be where he lost me the most. Everything had a song to it. His parents (Mom and Stepfather) really didn't seem to interested in anything he did and her parents us [...]

    11. D. Thrush on said:

      Who isn’t a sucker for a good love story? The best thing is that this one is true. Shawn and Dawn meet when they’re too young. They live next door to each other and start out as friends but their feelings slowly grow. Shawn is older and, initially, their parents endorse their close friendship. But one error in judgment and everything falls apart. Dawn’s parents forbid Shawn to see Dawn again. Due to the interference of their parents and a lack of maturity and communication skills, they eac [...]

      What a emotional read, happy moments and heart breaking moments, made even more real knowing its a true story. Would recommend it to anyone!

    13. Nicole on said:

      I didn't feel the love between the twoI didn't care about KISSI felt like the book was monotonous and anti-climatic. I am happy though, that they are together.

    15. Karla Goforth Abreu on said:

      Some Spoiler Alert:This book reads like someone's journal, which is basically what it is. The author wrote in autobiographical form, what he was feeling and his memories of his first love. Then, he began to write it out in a book to be published on an internet site. This explains, possibly, why the writing shows no creativity, to speak of. The topic is interesting enough: a man meets his girlfriend from 25 years ago and they rediscover one another. Most of the story is background material to get [...]

    16. Julie Watson on said:

      A beautiful love story told by the author, reliving the emotions, thoughts and journey he goes through. As a teenage boy, Shawn falls in love with the girl next door Dawn, but before they can make plans for their future, parents intervene and forbid them seeing each other. I can understand the parents' anger in some ways but instead of helping Shawn and Dawn, their solution was to forbid the match. This leads to years of heartbreak and separation. Love wins in the end over thirty years later. I [...]

      “Perspective is everything.”A life, in retrospect, is small, compact and filled with images, smell, sounds and feelings, mingled together into a soap of time. With 20/20 hindsight, facts, results, and conclusions are all laid out before you and what would have been, could have been, and should have been is as clear as a bright summer’s day. Time is a sheet covered in wormholes of opportunity. If you exit one, the chances of returning and picking up the tattered and separated threads of the [...]

    18. Alyson LaBarge on said:

      I am all for the concept of Soul mates. Really I am. It's just that most of the time, I find they only exist in the books I so love to read. Feels Like the First Time would be one of those books, except for one thing is a true story. This love story puts some of the fictional ones to shame too. You sure would not know that Shawn is a debuting writer - the characters are that good. I wanted to laugh when they did and cry when they did and could not wait to see what happened. Fact: I love this boo [...]

    19. Susan Swiderski on said:

      If my hubby were to write a book about how we met as kids, went steady in high school, went our separate ways after graduation, got engaged to other people, and ended up married to each other for nearly fifty years now, (and counting) I'm sure the book would make me swoon. Our kids and grandkids might like it, too, but the rest of the world? Probably not so much, because it's OUR story, and every single couple in the world has one. Most couples think their story is gold, and sometimes, they're r [...]

    20. Antonia on said:

      I really enjoyed this book. It tells the story of a young couple who is torn apart because of some misunderstandings and "fate", by after many years of loving each other silently and torturing themselves, they randomly meet and find the strength to reunite and get married, as they should have done so many years ago.Shawn Inmon's story is autobiographical. (At least I think so.) I really liked his writing style and the way he expressed his feelings and his thoughts. It was so good to see love thr [...]

    21. Ms Hanson on said:

      Deeply Touching Yet AuthenticRomance seems far too narrow a term for one man's interrupted courtship, spanning the distance from the moment his eyes first met hers across the yard in Mossyrock, Washington until a chance meeting a lifetime later, that spark still alive inside him, inextinguishable.Fate reunited them against incredible odds. Of that, Shawn Inmon was certain. But Dawn harbored doubts, held very different recollections of their teenage relationship, influenced by factors beyond her [...]

    22. Sharon on said:

      Shawn Inmon's "Feels Like the First Time" inspired laughter and tears alike as I read. Having grown up in a very small town myself, I related to many of the situations (and yes, challenges) that come with an environment where everyone knows everyone and tends to get into your business.Inmon tells the story of his growing affection for the literal girl next door, Dawn, and how their relationship develops. At one point, her parents demand that he never see her again -- and he doesn't, for thirty y [...]

      I'm ashamed to admit that I like jerky heroes sometimes - especially those with a lot of baggage. Well, Feels Like's hero does carry some baggage, but he's definitely not jerky. He's kind, compassionate, forgiving (man, is he forgiving!), and a self-described dork. Not to mention, he's a real person (in the literal sense of the word). Yet his and "his bride's" story stayed with me for a long time, and I found myself visiting his Facebook page every now and then to "check on" them - just to reass [...]

    24. Amanda on said:

      When I read a book I read for the emotional experience not a literary critique. This book was full of emotions. I somehow missed that this book was a true love story until it was over. I loved and hate this book was written by a man. Loved it because it is so rare that you get to see the true heart of a man, his hopes, his fears, his weaknesses, his dreams, and the self-discovery of a boy becoming a man, a husband, a father all just laid out for the world to see. I loved the self-admitted weakne [...]

    25. Corina on said:

      This story is just amazing. It is written straight from the heart of the author who is writing about true life events and people and by the way he has written it, you can tell it's true. In fact, during the parts where he is the young teenager, it is written with such energy and honesty, that we can see him and hear him in our minds as he writes the events just as they happened. How many of us have fallen in love with that one person that is our soul mate just to lose them? Lots of us. In this b [...]

      What a wonderful and incredible book. I usually don't read non-fiction but this one caught my eye. I read it in one day; it was that good!Told from Shawn's point of view, this is an incredible, true love story. When Shawn first laid eyes on Dawn, she was the skinny new kid who moved in next door. We soon learn that he has feelings for her despite that she is much younger than he. The 1970's era is a great backdrop for this story. All the great music brings back plenty of good memories. Soon sepa [...]

      I could echo so many of the wonderful reviews of this book that I have read here on . I loved the book. I love the nostalgia it inspired in me. I remember those days, and the feeling of young desperate, overwhelming, take-over your life love. I am so happy for Shawn and Dawn, that they found their way back to each other, and I am so anxious to hear the story from Dawn's perspective.Read this book! (Especially if you were a teen in the late 70's or early 80's) Then when your done, go over to Shaw [...]

    28. Tricia on said:

      This was my first non-fiction book. This memoir reads like a novel. Told by Shawn, as he pours his heart out, in this true second chance romance. Since I am a "sucker" for the fiction version a childhood sweetheart story/second chance romance I gave it a shot. I am very glad I did, it was very heartwarming. In the mood for lots of 70's nostalgia and a heartwarming love story, you will like this. Also, after reading, he has a link to pictures to put the story to life. Thanks Shawn and Dawn for sh [...]

      Feels Like the First Time recounts the real-life, often challenging, love story of two teenagers - the author, Shawn Inmon and his soul mate, Dawn. The two youngsters experience a roller coaster ride of ups and downs as unplanned circumstances, and her parents, create barriers to their happiness. Shawn's memoir, told in an honest, straightforward fashion, will keep the reader anxiously turning pages to see how these two people finally achieve their destiny.

    30. Michelle Finkle on said:

      3.5 Stars! This is the ultimate real life second chance love story. I was captivated by Shawn's gut wrenching recount of his one true love and the feelings of longing that spanned 30+ years. This book is a memoir with virtually no dialogue but I was still swept away by the decade and the amazing musical references. Although the writing wasn't stellar and it is truly only one side of the story, I did find myself rooting for the HEA of Shawn and Dawn.
