Funny and vibrant: V-Card by Alicia Michaels

I recently posted a Release Day post about V-Card, Sharing Spaces Book 1 by Alicia Michaels, including a hilarious excerpt. (You can read it here.) Now here’s my review:

When people are on a quest, they’re usually trying to find something. Jennifer, on the other hand, is trying to find someone to help her lose something. She calls it her V-Card. At almost 21, and after two failed attempts that led to the emergency room, Jenn is determined. She’ll just find a guy and get it over with. She’s a sophomore for crying out loud! But the guy she lands is not just any guy.  Dain is charming, gallant, patient and drop-dead gorgeous. And he wants her like crazy.  Jenn thanks her lucky stars and now she really wants to get lucky. But Luke, her philandering roommate, seems to have other plans for her.

This was a fun read. Light, sweet and vibrant. Dorm life is portrayed in a genuine way (for once, the roommates are not caricatures, but real people) the dialogues are funny with interesting turns of phrase, and the storyline, although not highly original, drew me in. Alicia’s writing is confident and turns contrite situations into entertaining scenes. What I really liked though was the clear message that this story offers: that no matter how much you plan, no matter how far you’re willing to reach to achieve your goal, it’s good to take a look around because maybe you don’t appreciate what’s already there.

Genre: New Adult, Romance, Comedy

Author Bio
 I began my writing career as an author of Fantasy and Science Fiction. My first books include The Lost Kingdom of Fallada Series and The Boinics Series.

An army wife and a mother of three, my days are never dull and I never lack for anything to do. I love to cook, sew, and of course, read.

I’m a believer in the written word and I love transporting people to different settings and allowing them to make friends with my characters.
