Description

A brand new sinfully sexy standalone romantic comedy from bestselling authors Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente!  
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 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 was skeptical about reading this when I read the blurb. But I’m glad I did. I loved CJ’s feisty innocence and Graham’s masculine sweetness. I loved how their story unfolded - hook, conflict, and resolution. Great job!!!

    By Great super duper book!!!
    The ending was abrupt and not satisfying. The book didn’t feel like a week of sensual, passionate, chemistry, and love. The climax and falling action was sudden and not complete.
  • Short and sweet

    You could elaborate more on how each person feels during sex. Virgin sex was a good opportunity to use a lot more descriptive words. I’m glad you didn’t elaborate on their separation when she went home heartbroken, directly to the save which is more realistic. The story line was great.

    It may sound like your typical best friends fall in Love kind of story but it’s sooo much more, if you love reading Lauren Blakely then don’t pass this one up! Set in New York, Graham, sexy, confident, CEO to a company called Adored that he build with his best friend Sean... Sean is the brother to CJ.... she’s beautiful, sweet, strong, successful and a virgin... CJ is turning 30 soon and is wanting to find someone to teach her the essence of subduction and to take her one last gift... graham is the perfect choice but for many reasons beyond his rumored history .. it could lead to a much deeper gift... but does he know how to love? #readitinoneday

    I thought this story would be more. Brothers best friend is one of my favorite troupes to read but this one lacked. I didn't feel the chemistry other than a true friendship. This is one book that didn't need a HEA. My stomach didn't hurt when I hit the moment at the end where you think they are over. I was just ready for the book to be over :( I did love their friendship. I know this book is for others.

    This book is awesome. I love both these authors and thought together... heck yeah! Storyline... CJ(h) is exceptionally close to bed older brother. His best friend is Graham. CJ has something she’d like to get rid of, her VCard. She enlists her Brothers best friend to help her with her ‘problem’. This story had it all. Lovable heroine, amazing and hot hero who is an actual good guy. Like great wish he was real guy!! (And I’m happily married to a great guy myself). This story has it all! Smoking hit scenes, sweethearts, die hard references. It is perfection. I wish I could groundhogs day it and read it again!
  • Highly recommend The V Card.

    If you like friends to lovers romance this book is for you. This was a great read! The story line was fresh and sensitive. Had me laughing and feeling compassion for the characters. CJ and Graham are also strong business owners and I loved the support they had for each other there as well. Great and entertaining read.

    When you have reached 25 and your still a virgin, who better to help you with your "V Card" than your brother's best friend. CJ has always had a thing for Graham. Since the death of her brother, Graham has taken on the role as her protector, her "Big Brother." So when CJ asks Graham for help in being sexier, more desirable, and help her lose her virginity, he's taken back a bit. His inner struggle that he is betraying his best friend lingers in the back of his mind. But when a friend convinces him that its better that he is the one to be her teacher than some sleaze bag, he quickly changes his mind. It was only suppose to be 7 days of sex lessons. No emotions, no pulling of the heart strings, no attachments. But when the one person who knows you the best is the least one you expect to capture your heart and soul, what do you do? Neither CJ nor Graham saw it coming. Are they willing to put themselves out there and expose their feelings for one another? Can the friendship they have survive if they try for more? When I heard that Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente were writing a book together I knew I needed to get my hands on it. WOW, just seriously WOW! The V Card had me laughing, smiling, hot and bothered in a good way. It was sweet, sexy, full of humor, passionate and soulfully rich. Well done ladies, well done!
