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.

V-Card was a real fun, feel-good book. The main character, Jennifer, heading towards her 21st birthday, is determined to lose her virginity beforehand. Not that she hasn’t had the chance to do so, just that things always go drastically wrong when the time comes. The moment the book started, Jenn’s story had me smiling and as you learn the missed opportunities she’s had to rid herself of her ‘V-Card’, Alicia Michaels provides plenty of moments to laugh at.

Fast paced and amusing, there was a lot to love about V-Card. The cast of characters were great to read. I loved Jenn’s best friends Kinsley and Chloe – especially Chloe who was so different from the rest with her high fashion and more expensive outlook on life!

The comedy in this book was the best part. Right from the beginning, when we learn about Jenn, her clumsiness and unfortunate incidents, V-Card had me laughing. The first half of the book, when Jenn met Dain and things were just as ridiculous for her as she describes in the first chapter, I loved. It was really entertaining and great just to put a smile on your face. As the book went on, though, as enjoyable as it was, I thought the plot became a bit too predictable and as the focus was more on the romance than the comedy, I didn’t love the second half of the book quite as much.

It is a light hearted read though and with a mixture of characters, it’s easy to make relations from them to yourself or people you know. Chloe reminded me a lot of my best friend and I definitely know someone like Dain too. It was refreshing to read a fun, humorous outlook in a New Adult book rather than the more emotional, grim outlook seen in so many and V-Card was simply an entertaining, very enjoyable romantic comedy. I look forward to the next Sharing Spaces book.

I began my writing career as an author of Fantasy and Science Fiction. My first books include The Lost Kingdom of Fallada Series and The Boinics Series.

An army wife and a mother of three, my days are never dull and I never lack for anything to do. I love to cook, sew, and of course, read.

I'm a believer in the written word and I love transporting people to different settings and allowing them to make friends with my characters.
