I'm pleased to be able to welcome New Adult, Romance author Alicia Michaels to the blog! She's celebrating the release of her newest book, V-CARD, out today! Enjoy the excerpt, and don't forget to enter the giveaway before you leave. Good luck! :)
Jennifer Nolan has been unlucky when it comes to love; even more unfortunate when it comes to sex. In fact, the twenty year-old college junior is about to enter her senior year still carrying her v-card. All she wants is to be with that special someone without it resulting in a trip to the emergency room, runaway office supplies, or being scarred for life by someone's weird fetishes. With several botched attempts under her belt, she begins to fear she'll end up a lonely spinster or a crazy cat lady.
With only 60 days until her 21st birthday, Jennifer is determined to lose her virginity once and for all. Little does she know that her mission will lead her down a path toward love. She never expects that her mission will lead her to a discovery of what true womanhood is, and where true and lasting love begins.
Ever since she first read books like Chronicles of Narnia or Goosebumps, Alicia has been a lover of mind-bending fiction. Wherever imagination takes her, she is more than happy to call that place her home. The mother of two and wife to an Army sergeant loves chocolate, coffee, and of course good books. When not writing, you can usually find her with her nose in a book, shopping for shoes and fabulous jewelry, or spending time with her loving family.
Jennifer is twenty years old and is living with four other people while going to college. She has always had bad luck when it comes to losing her v-card and Jenn has decided that she will change all that before she turns 21. As she sets out to find the “one” she helps out one of her roomies by posing as his girlfriend, while at the family party they attend she meets Dain whom she is instantly attracted too and she finally thinks she finds a man she may actually love. Over the course of time her roommates are always there for her and while things happen, true love ends up showing up when she least expects it (and from the last person she would expect :) ).
I absolutely loved this book! Right from the beginning I loved each one of the roommates and their unique characteristics/attitudes that all fit so well together. The interaction between the five of them was just perfect and I couldn’t help myself by falling in love with each and every one of them. I enjoyed the ride with Jennifer as she looks to lose her v-card as well as being there with her ups and downs throughout the rollercoaster ride of the 60 days prior to her birthday.
If you are looking for a good book that will make you laugh at times, hold your interest so much you cant put the book down, then this is the one for you!!
