WARNING: THIS BOOK IS DEFINITELY ONLY FOR AGES 18 OR OLDER. OLIVIA HAS CRAZY THOUGHTS. IF YOU ARE OFFENDED BY INAPPROPRIATE THOUGHTS I RECOMMEND YOU DON'T READ THIS. IF YOU HAVE VIRGIN EARS I RECOMMEND YOU DON'T READ THIS. IF YOU HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR THEN READ THIS.
Olivia Spurgeon has been a good girl her entire life. Her friends have called her Spurgeon the Virgin since 9th grade. Why? Because everyone in her group of friends had already lost there virginity by then. Over the past four years it has been like a foreign object attached to her and even named it something simple.
Now, she's a freshman in college and still hasn't done the deed. All three of her roommates do not have Virginity attached to them and they aren't scared to show it off. Olivia is jealous. She wants what they are having, feeling. One day she finally decides that she doesn't want Virginity attached to her anymore and begins the journey of losing it.
When Ava Michaels contacted me about her debut, I couldn't say no because I'm in love with New Adult books and reading about people more my age. It didn't hurt that Losing Virginity sounded like it would be one funny ride.
I must say that this book had me hooked before I even got 3% in. It didn't take long for Ava to have me laughing and turning pages like it was my job. The main character, Olivia, is this extremely innocent, never-done-a-thing-wrong kinda girl. At the ripe age of 18 she's dying to get rid of her virginity and have the experience that will make her a full-fledged woman.
The further I read into this story, the harder it was to put down. It was extremely addicting and it helped that the main character was not only funny, but also had a good head on her shoulders. While Olivia's main goal was to lose her virginity, she wouldn't just lay down for anyone. This left me admiring Olivia because she didn't just pick the first guy to walk up to her. Unlike a number of college girls, she wanted to actually date the guy and get to know him first.
As you may have seen above, this story come with a warning to those who are easily offended. While I'm not easy to offend or embarrass, I frequently found myself blushing at some of the thoughts and comments that came from Olivia and her friends. When I say blushing I mean full on, glad-I'm-not-in-public blushing. I was beat red with a dropped jaw. While the comments and thoughts were vivid and detailed, there were also times when I would die laughing and have to put the book down, reread, or share with friends.
Overall, I highly recommend Losing Virginity to those over the age of 18 who aren't faint of heart. This book was hysterical and had me quoting lines because they were too good to not share. It is definitely worth the time to sit down and read and I look forward to any other books that Ava decides to write!
