The Virgin Romance Novelist by Meghan Quinn Blog Tour

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…

The first third of the book I was entertained by Rosie and her crazy dates but the story wasn't laugh out loud funny. I think this was because the antics on Rosie's dates were a little too contrived for my tastes.

Rosie was home schooled and lives for books and this is the reason given for why she is naive and has no idea about sex and dating. The problem for me was I just didn't buy it. She went through college with her now roommates and was almost dateless despite her friends and internet access.

I was loving the relationship between Rosie, her best friend Henry and their roommate Delaney so I pushed on reading. The story kind of snuck up on me because by 50% the things that were bothering me were forgotten and I was hooked. I devoured the second half in one sitting.

I like the way that the author took her time with the romance between Rosie and her hero. Their romance had a nice long build up and it was believable and by the end of the book I was in tears.

It took a while to suck me in but ultimately I enjoyed The Virgin Romance Novelist.

The Virgin Romance Novelist was a cute, sweet, sometimes funny story.
Rosie Bloom is an aspiring Romance author, the only problem? She has no idea what Romance really is. Based on her mom's "stash" of naughty books (Fabio-era romance) she attempts to write some steamy erotica. Luckily, though, her 2 best-friends/roommates are dead-set on educating her via their own stories and the internet.
Henry starts an Internet Dating profile for Rosie, closely monitoring those who respond to her. Delaney, on the other hand is a bit more whimsical and excitable – she just wants her friend to experience all that the world of sex has to offer! Together, the 3 embark on a journey of self-discovery for Rosie which at times is uncomfortable, it's quirky, and some is just down-right hilarious.
I liked the characters, even though Rosie's inexperience did seem a bit far-fetched, they all had a major part to play that enriched the story.
The romance (not erotic, just romance) was a slow build and angsty, it was realistic and believable. The erotic moments were sometimes awkward, other times steamy, but always entertaining.
This was a cute, refreshing read and I'd be interested in reading more by Meghan Quinn!

This has to be the funniest book I have read certainly this year, probably this decade. It is sadly too inappropriate to share with any of the people around me, so I have had to either hide away, or lie about why I was laughing so much, all day! But if you can cope with having to keep the hilarity to yourself, or you have a bff who can share it with you, then this is an absolute must.

Is it clichéd? Oh yes, but it is also by turns unbelievably sweet, and totally hilarious. Pretty much everything you may have ever feared happening, happens, and ... then some! It just works, so very, very well. The ending is not a surprise; there is no-one hospitalised (although she inadvertently makes some heroic attempts); the buildup is delightful; the eponymous heroine is beyond clueless – fabulous.

This is now at the absolute top of my 'I need to Laugh' pile, and whilst I hope I don't need it, I shall be indulging frequently, even if just for a few pages of magic... and when I next see my bff, she is in for some serious hilarity (if I can stop laughing long enough to tell her!)

Thank you Ms. Quinn – I loved the Jett series, but this side of your talent is even more entertaining.

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
