Rating: 3 stars

Review: I was immediately drawn into this book because the voice was spot on for a college girl. The writing was good and before I knew it, I was about half way through the book. While it was easy to read, not much stood out to me as phenomenal. The characters are OK, but could have used some more development. The romance develops at an OK and believable pace, but it was a bit too perfect for my tastes. The “love” scenes were tantalizing and tastefully written. The summary of the book makes it sound like the whole selling her virginity piece is monumental, but I felt like it was just thrown in because the author needed a plot twist and like it needed to be fleshed out more. All and all, it was an OK book, a quick easy read.
