The Virgin Romance Novelist was extremely funny and definitely a great new adult story. The basic story revolves around a twenty-three year old woman who has this desire to write a romance story but the only problem is she has no experience with men. She's also never read a contemporary romance or any romance for that matter written after the 80s. To her Fabio is still all the rage, she hasn't met any of todays romance heroes. Between her lack of experience and lack of modern romance understanding she's having a hard time trying to write this story.
This story follows Rosie on her adventure of trying to get laid while getting her chops busted by her best friends. It hilariously depicts learning how to use certain "items" for adults, trying to navigate the online dating world and meeting people in person. All of these things that most women have trouble doing but never admit to.
I read this book cover to cover in the matter of three hours. I read it while I made dinner, I read it during dinner much to my families disdain and then read as I cleaned up. I wouldn't put it down because its that kinda story you get wrapped up in, it makes you smile, it makes you laugh. It's very feel good with a sweet an naive heroine that actually does have a backbone.
I actually enjoyed every character in this book which was surprising because each person was so different. Rosie's best friends and roommates are Delaney and Henrey. Delaney is a total ball buster but she's got a good heart and watches out for Rosie. She is actually the motivating factor for Rosie to get out and experience the big "D" for herself. While Delaney is the teaser, Henry is Rosies support system. He listens, he laughs and acts as Rosies protector. He's also a total man-whore so he's the go to guy for learning the "How-to's" of sex.
In my opinion, every adult women should read this story especially those in their twenties because it talks about a lot of stuff you probably don't even know about. It digs into some sex issues both about yourself and other people that most people fail to mention to you. It's funny, it's a tad bit informative, eye-opening and simply hysterical.
I'd recommend, most definitely. This is a "new adult" story so basically 18+ or college age readers. It's light, it's sweet, I'd love another book like this from the author.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher.
