When you think about how easy it is to lose keys, phones, sunglasses and your dignity on social media, you might figure it'd be a cinch for me to ditch my V Card.

You'd be wrong.

At 25, I run a successful business, live in a fantastic apartment, and have fabulous friends to go out with any night of the week. And yet I'm still a card-carrying member of a club I don't want to belong to anymore. Good thing I know just the man for the deflowering job—my brother’s business partner and best friend.

Graham Campbell is charming, smart, and, I’m told, oh-so-skilled in the sack. As long as I keep my eyes on the prize, there’s no way this pluck-the-flower project could possibly complicate matters.


Work and pleasure. As the CEO of a fast-growing company, I've been enjoying both to the fullest. What do I do when the board throws me for an unexpected loop so I can keep my business in my hands? I enlist the help of my best friend's little sister since she holds a big stake in the company. But then I learn there's another big stake she wants.

The one between my legs.

I can do this. Seven nights to teach her everything I know in the bedroom. There's no way I'll fall for her, even though she’s earning top grades in every single sinfully sexy lesson. And turns out I’m learning something too. The trouble is I don’t have the answer key to what to do when I fall hard for her.

And that throws a whole new hitch in my plans.
I first saw this book at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. I read the summary there and thought I like the tone of the characters and Kim's review convinced me to get a copy of the book.

This is a story of two friends turning into lovers because of a request. I like how the two authors managed to give the two main characters strong voice. It was fun reading about the two of them and their sweet interactions with each other. However, the story fell flat somehow. Personally, I think it didn't quite hit the climax of the story and the story is a little predictable. All that happened between the two of them was like a business transaction because of the request CJ made in response to the favour that Graham requested. I find that I don't quite like this part after a while.  Nevertheless, I do enjoy the fun and steamy story.
