About this ebook

A sinfully sexy brother's best friend romance 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 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.

This is a wonderful story of friends to lovers. Caroline Jessica "CJ" Murphy has been friends with Graham Campbell for years. After all he was her brother, Sean's best friend. After Sean passed away suddenly, Graham has always looked out for CJ and been a big brother to her. When CJ and Graham meet up for one of their usual Sunday brunch dates, they both have something they need to ask of the other. Graham would like CJ to speak at a board meeting to help save the lingerie company that him and Sean started. This was a perfect opportunity for CJ to ask Graham what she would like.....she would like him to help her lose her virginity and help her be more knowledgeable in that area. Graham is's Sean's little sister....this goes against everything. But CJ is so desperate she bribes Graham....she will help him if he spends the next week teaching her and helping her to lose her virginity and then she will speak at the board meeting. After much soul searching, Graham agrees. This story was so fun! I just adored Graham. To most people he was a playboy, but really deep down he is a great guy. I just loved his lessons with CJ. It was entertaining watching her open up and own her sensuality. Even though CJ always had a crush on Graham, it was fun watching their friendship change to something more with each lesson they went through. In the end they both got their happy ending that they didn't even know they were looking for!

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!

Ok, so seriously, what do you do when you hear two of your favorite authors are writing a book together. Together! You scream. You message them. You text your friends. I've been waiting for this for a long time. Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente are two of the most talented writers I've ever read. Add in what incredible women they are and it's a recipe for success. The V Card is the perfect mix of their rom/com laughs, blushing sexiness and loveable characters. It's a friends to lovers romance with a unique twist. CJ is almost twenty-six and she is in desperate need of losing her virginity and learn how to seduce a man. Her brother's best friend is the perfect candidate. She's comfortable with him, he's sexy, and he's a player. So, who better to teach her how to ways of seduction than the sexiest man in Manhattan. Graham is CEO of his own company and he needs help from CJ. When he approaches her he finds out that she wants something in return. Can he be CJ's sexspert? When their lessons are over can they remain friends? I loved this story. It's fun, sexy as sin, silly and full of heart. CJ and Graham learn things about themselves while learning what drives the other crazy. I loved watching their love story unfold, with is fun antics, witty banter and entertaining secondary characters. Overall, I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered and laughed more. I sighed and swooned at the end! I can't wait to see what else Lauren and Lili will come up with! "I just want to be able to drive a man crazy. To please and satisfy him in every way." My d insists he and I could teach her how a real man treats a woman. But my d isn't the best barometer. D are notoriously untrustworthy. I really did pick the best teacher in the enter history of the world.
