“VIRGIN was one of the funniest books I have read this year.” ~ Under the Covers
Ellie thinks she must be the only virgin in her university, 21 years old and all she has to her name is some kisses and a bite job. It’s not even like she is looking for Mr Right with his candlelit dinners and bouquets of roses. She would settle for a few drinks, so long as she can throw away her V card at the end of the night. But this year Ellie is determined to finally do it and get rid of her shameful secret once and for all.
This book is two things that I generally don’t read…and have no interest in reading; New Adult and Chick Lit. But wow, am I glad I didn’t listen to my usual MO, VIRGIN was one of the funniest books I have read this year. So much so that I don’t recommend eating or drinking anything while reading it, or even reading it in a public place. But as well as funny, it was also well written and utterly relatable, full of the sort of thoughts and feelings that most of us girls have battled with at one point in our lives.
If you are are a traditional romance than this isn’t for you, there is no romantic HEA at the end of this book. What you do have is a bundle of hilarious situations, friendships and a bit of character growth, all showing the trials, tribulations and confusion of a girl growing up, from masturbation, waxing and other inconvenient hair growth to who exactly who does pay on a date?
This was a great read, it lagged a little in the second half of the book, but by than I was hooked. If you are after something that will give you a good belly laugh than I highly recommend that you pick VIRGIN up.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
