The V Card

Review From User :

Where to begin I'm a huge fan of both Blakely and Valente, so when I found they were collaborating on a book, I knew I had to have it.

When you have two authors who both have a love for writing sweet, spicy and a bit of sexy you get The V Card.

Here are my Top Five reasons I fell in love with CJ and Graham's journey:

1. Graham makes lingerie. And there is something sexy about a mam who makes things that make women feel sexy.
2. CJ, our virgin, wasn't afraid to go for what she wanted. Yes, she is a virgin. No spoiler, but what makes me like her is that she wanted her first time to mean something with someone who means something lol. I really can't phrase that any better. #SorryNotSorry
3. Stephen
4. So many cute, warm and fuzzy moments. The memories they have about her brother and his best friend, pulls at your heart.
5. Even though their initial coming together was based on CJ's '7-day lessons', you could immediately tell there was so much more to them. Friends to lovers is one of my favorite troupes.

The Narration
Sebastian York does a superb job as Graham. It is something about the way his tone works for this character that had me captivated. It was sexy, fun and a little dirty, but not too much. Just enough swag to keep a smile on your face. He also does a little accent for the landlord. Made me happy.

Andi Arndt, no surprise there knocks it out of the park. She has the best pacing and knows how to be in tune with the characters. It is like she digs deep down and taps into their hearts, mind and souls. She does this with CJ. I felt every emotion CJ expressed through Andi's performance.

I recommend The V Card if you want a cute and fun Rom-Com to add to your holiday listen list!

PS- Loved the diversity of the other characters.

A brand new sinfully sexy standalone romantic comedy from bestselling authors Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente!

When you think about how easy it is to lose keys, phones, sunglasses and your dignity on social media, you might figure it’d be a cinch for me to ditch my V Card.
You’d be wrong.
At 25, I run a successful business, live in a fantastic apartment, and have fabulous friends to go out with any night of the week. And yet I’m still a card-carrying member of a club I don’t want to belong to anymore. Good thing I know just the man for the deflowering job – my brother’s business partner and best friend.
Graham Campbell is charming, smart, and, I’m told, oh-so-skilled in the sack. As long as I keep my eyes on the prize, there’s no way this pluck-the-flower project could possibly complicate matters.
Work and pleasure. As the CEO of a fast-growing company, I’ve been enjoying both to the fullest. What do I do when the board throws me for an unexpected loop so I can keep my business in my hands? I enlist the help of my best friend’s little sister since she holds a big stake in the company. But then I learn there’s another big stake she wants.
The one between my legs.
I can do this. Seven nights to teach her everything I know in the bedroom. There’s no way I’ll fall for her, even though she’s earning top grades in every single sinfully sexy lesson. And turns out I’m learning something too. The trouble is I don’t have the answer key to what to do when I fall hard for her.
And that throws a whole new hitch in my plans.
