Publisher Description

From former football player and star of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette comes a fascinating and eye-opening behind-the-scenes look at his drama-filled season on the hit reality show.

Before Colton Underwood captured the hearts of millions on The Bachelor, he was a goofy, socially awkward, overweight adolescent who succeeded on the football field while struggling with personal insecurities off it. An All American gridiron hero, he was also a complex, sometimes confused, soft-hearted romantic wondering how these contradictions fit together. Old-fashioned and out of step with the swipe right dating culture of today, he was saving the most intimate part of life for the love of his life. If only he could find her…

Now, in The First Time, Colton opens up about how he came to find himself and true love at the same time via the Bachelor franchise. Unencumbered by cameras and commercial breaks, he delivers a surprisingly raw, endearing, and seriously juicy account of his journey through The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and The Bachelor, along with what has happened with him and Cassie Randolph since his season wrapped. He opens up about being dumped by Becca, his secret dalliance with Tia, what it was like to be the world’s most famous virgin, his behind-the-scenes conflicts with production, and how his on-camera responsibilities as the Bachelor nearly destroyed him after he knew he had already fallen in love with Cassie.

A memoir for Bachelor Nation and anyone who believes in the magic of love, The First Time carries a simple but powerful message: It’s okay to laugh and cry and occasionally jump over a fence, if it means coming one step closer to the right person.

Thoughtful and Revealing… In an Inspiring Way

If you’re like me, you probably noticed something different about Colton when he was on TV. There was something more human and authentic about him than any other Bachelor. In his book, Colton shines with even more authenticity and breaks down how his life shaped him into the trailblazer he is today. Must read if you love the Bachelor and a must read if you are looking for motivation to be the authentic you.

Super relatable

I love reading books like this, because hearing someone else’s story makes me feel less weird and less alone. I love Colton’s vulnerability and courage to really share himself and put his whole life out there for us in this book! Thank you so much Colton! Keep trusting God and He will take care of the rest. <3

Privileged white boy who is stuck living in the glory days of high school football. Horrible writing! Should be a free book. Regret spending money on this. Quarantine makes you do stupid things, and this was mine.
