**WARNING: THE VIRGIN ROMANCE NOVELIST IS A STANDALONE ROMANTIC COMEDY THAT WILL CAUSE YOU TO LAUGH LIKE A HYENA IN PUBLIC. READ IN THE CONFINES OF YOUR OWN HOME. IF YOU ARE ADDICTED TO CLIFFHANGERS, GETTING YOUR HEART RIPPED OUT OF YOUR CHEST AND FEELING LIKE A BULLDOZER JUST PLOWED THROUGH YOUR STOMACH, THEN THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR YOU. IF YOU LIKE PEEING YOUR PANTS AND CRYING FROM LAUGHING SO HARD, THEN PLEASE CONTINUE READING.*** Her bosom heaved at an alarming rate as his rough hand found its way down to her soft, yet wiry briar patch... Can you say briar patch in a romance novel? What about meat sword? That's what it is...a meat sword, right, all meaty and sword like, slaying through the inner dungeons of a woman's dark desires. What about breasts? Do bosoms really heave? God, I have no idea what happens when private parts touch. I'm a virgin trying to write a romance novel and can't seem to write past a sex scene thanks to my lack of experience. My two best friends encourage me to drop the pen for a while and gain some real life practice through multiple dating facets such as blind dates, online profiles, and random hookups. But losing my virginity is proving to be tougher than expected...

Two words: READ IT!

There are so many things to include that I don’t know where to start. Hilariously voiced, Rosie is a charming, naive, and snarkie ball of awesome. The situations she finds herself in remind me of “Something About Mary” or “The 40 Year-Old-Virgin” but with elevated literary wit and an adorable, but sheltered, main character.
Home-schooled and a bit on the shy side, Rosie is finally convinced to come out of her shell and try to get laid. Not because she wants a relationship, but because she can’t write a convincing love scene for her budding romance novel if she’s never had sex.  Thus begins the quest to lose her virginity.  Trying everything from blind dates to online dating, Rosie seems to attract disaster. Or, perhaps her failure is because none of them are the perfect match!
The story moves swiftly, and you whole-heartedly cringe at some of the situations as if you were there. During several scenes, I found myself laughing hysterically – no really – CRYING from laughter! My children and husband wanted to know what was up; It was difficult to come up with an honest reply, as it was the vivid and description of Brazilian Waxing and improperly used vibrators that had me cackling like a loon.

Her roommates rock, and it is difficult not to fall in-love with Henry just from his total support of her (not to mention he’s a hottie!!)

While some of the situations seem over-the-top, almost to the point of farce, they are so relatable that it’s more like an episode of “I Love Lucy” with a serious edge. The love story is incredibly sweet and progresses naturally. (Anyone who has friend-zoned someone they shouldn’t have can relate.) There was only one part that I would have changed/altered, but it didn’t ruin the story for me. (Not going into detail, just because it could be a spoiler.)

Suffice it to say, Meghan Quinn has officially solidified herself as my next binge-read author!  Run, don’t walk, to get this in your hands. Super light, fun-filled frivolity of a romp!
