I was ready to pre-order this book on the simple fact that it was by Tiffany King alone. But once I started reading the blurb I got through the the first line only, Nicole is not only a historical romance author but she also happens to be a virgin? Sold. Nope, I don't need to read any further because this book was just screaming fun and sexy read. And Tiffany King delivers those things and more. No joke, I inhaled this one. Once I cracked it open there was no chance of stopping to breathe much less eat, sleep or any of those other things a functioning human does. One hour turned into two which turned into four which turned into me finishing the book with a happy little sigh and a huge grin.
It was all fun and games until my next book, when I would write her in as a character and kill her off by dropping a meteor on her head.
I love main characters like Nicole Blake. She's a bit awkward and a bit of an introvert at times. Though I feel like the best thing about Nicole is she is absolutely hilarious. She was very real and in a lot of ways I could see bits of myself at that age in her. She's a very relatable character. It was a lot of fun to watch her start to break out of her shell and put herself out there more. Be bold instead of hiding in her apartment behind her keyboard.
I'm sure an outsider listening to one of our conversations would seriously question our friendship. Words like whore and slutbag were regular terms of endearment for us.
Nicole's best friend Olivia was just as fun as she was. I loved the friendship these two had. The way they interact with each other is just so me. I would totally be friends with either of them in real life. Olivia is also quite the meddler though which is always fun to read. I would crack up whenever she'd instigate a situation and then just never quite look Nicole in the eye out of guilt or trying to pretend she had no idea what was going on around her.
I would have been lying if I said having Alec playing the role of knight in shining armor was unpleasant in the slightest.
Alec Petropoulos. That guy. When I wasn't wanting to do things to him that I should never, ever mention in public, I wanted to smack the crap out of him. I think I even had a status update on Goodreads that just said "Ass :(" Alec isn't perfect. He makes mistakes and I wanted to stay mad at him. I really tried. Once he would explain the reasoning behind the choices he's made I'd get it though. I still wanted to smack him and tell him that he was being an idiot and should have taken chances anyway, just because something turned out bad once doesn't mean it will again. Frustrating, yes, but I still love the guy.
It was time to put Operation Seduction into play.
Oh. My. Word. Tiffany King can write the hell out of a steamy scene. The chemistry between Nicole and Alec is explosive. I've read books before where the virgin main character decides it's time to get rid of her V-card and quite frankly it's all just been a big trashy mess. This one is sweet and quirky and hilarious and very sexy. Instant favorite and I feel like everyone would enjoy this. People who are afraid of NA or haven't read any good NA in the past? This is the book for you!
