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.
Emotional roller coaster
The V Card by Lauren Blakely
OMG!! I absolutely enjoyed reading this next book from Lauren Blakely. I ran through the full range of emotions as I navigated through the pages. Lauren has a unique writing style that provides just the right amount of detail in the description of the characters and their surroundings.
We meet Graham Campbell hunk extraordinaire who has built his company from the ground up with his best friend Sean. He loves to be unattached and his favorite pastime is women. Although when we first meet him he is on a sex-batical because women cause him not to concentrate. Huh don’t figure a sexy man that loves women and doesn’t have the ability to be committed to anything except the company. Not a surprise here.
Meet Caroline Jessica Murphy or CJ for short. She is a business owner and highly successful. She is 26 and is very inexperience in the men department. Sean was her brother and has known Graham since they were kids. He is always there for her when she needs him. The plan is to ask Graham to help her with a project, but she is afraid it could impact their friendship. What can possibly be the project, or better yet could it be bad enough to ruin a friendship?
There are many parts in this books that had this reader laughing aloud with my husband thinking I’m totally crazy. To bad I can’t say that for all the sections because there were tears shed that caused my chest to hurt. As I continued to trudge through the chapters the need to smack both characters upside the head was strong but in the end, it came out just fine.
If you are looking for an excellent read to run you through an emotional roller coaster and leaving you wishing, there was more then this is the book for you. As an avid Lauren Blakely reader this book is one of the best.
Resist, Resist, Resist
This is the first collaboration for these two authors, and the first collaboration period for Lauren Blakely. These two are gold together creating a story that is very sweet, very sexy and very funny.
It’s rather a friends to lovers story but goes much deeper than that. Graham has been the self appointed protector for CJ since her brother Sean’s death. Sean plays a major role in this story both as Graham’s best friend and conscience when it comes to CJ.
Can these two make it past their obstacles? You surely hope so because you love both these people. Enjoy!
Finding Your Forever
This is a funny, sweet, and sometimes a few tugs on the heart story of friends-to-lovers-to-forever kind of story. Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente team up for the first time to write a great rom-com story of pure entertainment.
CJ is a smart, successful, intelligent, and strong woman in the 21st century. Except, there is one small problem that she is needing to get rid of. Her V-card!! So, she enlists the help of her deceased brother’s business partner, Graham Campbell. CJ totally blows Graham’s mind when she asks him to tutor her in how to seduce a man and lose that dreaded V-card. Graham needs CJ’s help in convincing his board of directors for the company that he and Sean (CJ’s brother) started, not to sell. CJ agrees to speak to the board in one week if Graham agrees to be her “teacher” for the next week. What these two long time friends come to realize is that they have been each other’s rock through some really tough times and some really great times. Through some miscommunications they both realize that they are in love and that that love is so worth fighting for!!
A great weekend escape into a wonderful world of hot and steamy scenes between the sheets mixed in with some pretty funny moments between Graham and CJ. Of course this wouldn’t be a book from Lauren Blakely without an animal of some sort to cause a little havoc here and there. The cat(Stephen King) is funny but, very special to CJ and even to Graham.
