Her bosom heaved at an alarming rate as his rough hand found its way down to her soft, yet wiry briar patch...
Can you say briar patch in a romance novel? What about meat sword? That’s what it is…a meat sword, right, all meaty and sword like, slaying through the inner dungeons of a woman’s dark desires. What about breasts? Do bosoms really heave?
God, I have no idea what happens when private parts touch.
I’m a virgin trying to write a romance novel and can’t seem to write past a sex scene thanks to my lack of experience.
My two best friends encourage me to drop the pen for a while and gain some real life practice through multiple dating facets such as blind dates, online profiles, and random hookups.
But losing my virginity is proving to be tougher than expected…

There is something about Meghan Quinn’s brand of humor that brings out my inner 12-year-old boy (and I am a mature adult, thankyouverymuch). I loved The Virgin Romance Novelist for the same reason I loved The Mother Road…it’s just damn funny. I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard while reading as I did with these two books.
The virgin is Rosie, and she wants to be a romance writer. Unfortunately, her v-card is preventing her from creating an authentic story. So, Rosie decides that it is time to take matters into her own hands (literally) to gain some personal experience to use in her book. She embarks on a journey of new experiences like online dating, Brazilian waxing, alpha males, and much more. Each time she broadens her horizons, she finds herself in a hilarious predicament. I particularly enjoyed the waxing episode, and there may have been a snort and belly laugh involved.
I really like the characters in the story. Rosie is sweet, if not extremely naïve. I can see where some may say her naiveté is unbelievable or a little over-the-top, but that’s what makes everything so funny. Her friends are funny and supportive, so they made for great secondary characters.
So, if you enjoy laughing until your stomach hurts and fancy reading about a twentysomething’s sexual escapades on the road to losing her virginity and finding love, The Virgin Romance Novelist is for you!
Rosie’s story continues in…
