Book Review: The Virgin Romance Novelist ( book #1 ) – Meghan Quinn

synopsis single

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…


My Thoughts 2

A funny and charming romance. Meghan Quinn delivers 311 pages full of wit, sass, humor and unique personality. This book is a piece of art.

`The Virgin Romance Novelist` by Meghan Quinn is a rom-com. A rom – com that wasn´t quite my cup of tea. the virgin romance novelist

While I enjoyed the humor and charisma this book had, I wasn´t fully blown out of my socks. It´s an okay novel. Nothing more. Nothing less.

I liked the idea of the story. A virgin wanting to write a romance novel and not having the slightest clue how to go about it because she lacks the know how in the sex department. Sounds good, right? I thought it sounded fantastic! Refreshing, even.

But sometimes you just don´t buy the virgin game with book characters. Like I did ( or didn´t ). Maybe the reason for my indifference for this story is because of the Heroine´s intelligence regarding sex ( she did come across as an air head ) or perhaps it was because this book felt like it was just too in – your – face….. I really can´t pinpoint why. All I know is that I didn´t find many parts as humorous as they were set out to be.

Or (!!!) maybe I´m just not the type of person who appreciates this kind of read.

My biggest issue was the Heroine. My second biggest issue was the weird romance between the Hero and Heroine. Were they a couple or were they not? Friends with benefits? Did he just do people favors? What happened? What did I miss? Uugh. I probably missed something. Which is fine. I´m not too hot on finding out what it was.

But with that being said – I can see why many others would find this book out of this world fantabulous.

`The Virgin Romance Novelist`( The Virgin Romance Novelist #1 ) wasn´t written for me. And because of this I´m just going to skip the second book. I can´t work up enough interest for more about Rosie. I´ll let others take the stand and gush their love for this book.


 

Would I recommend this book? Yeah. I would. Fans of chick – lit, rom – coms will enjoy this read.

Would I reread this book? Nope.


 

The Cover – 3 Stars: I´m a little bit of a fan of the cover. Love the close up on the eyes. The filter used for the cover image, though… the whole things looks a tad over filtered.

The Story – 3 Stars: I liked the idea of the story.

The Characters – 3 Stars: I truly have no clue what to think of them.

My emotional state after finishing this read: Indifferent.

3 stars

  1. Great review! just finished the entire Virgin Romance Chronicles. I felt the same way you did. It was incredibly funny, but unbelievable. Some things were just too wacky. I would say you’re not missing anything skipping the second book. Although, some of it was just so funny I laughed out loud. It might be worth skimming for those parts. My friend who read both before me said to skip #2.
    Have you read any of Meghan Quinn’s other books? All of her books starting with Stroked until recent have been so good! I would recommend any of them if you like rom-coms.

    1. Thank you so much 🙂 Yeah, have a feeling I won´t be missing out on much if I skip the rest of the Virgin Romance Chronicles. I have actually read The Mother Road ( review is due in a few days ) and thought that one was a tad better. I´m usually all for adding humor in romances but sometimes you have to know when to call it a day, you know? Thank you again for commenting on my post! It´s much appreciated ❤

      1. I totally get that!
        Okay, so if you thought Mother Road was better, I would check out some of her newer releases. Maybe Co-Wrecker. Or if you want contemporary romance her Blue Line duet is really good. I think her books are getting better and better. I also loved the Stroked series. I thought Mother Road was good, but not as good as her newer stuff.

        1. Eeep! For some reason, your comment landed in my spam folder * shaking head * I´m sorry for getting back with you a little late * now hiding face * You know what? I actually considered reading her newer works because it´s often the case that writer´s stories improve with each book. I´m a huge fan of contemp. rom. so I´ll definitely look into her other books. ❤

  2. This reminded me of A Room With a View! Apparently at the end of the book the characters were supposed to have sex. But at the time, the author was a virgin and he was gay and didn’t know how to write a sex scene. So all his characters do at the end is hug and kiss or something along those innocent lines. Kind of crazy when you think about it lol.
