V is for Virgin Teaser

First, I want to say thank you to everyone who took part in the Serial Hottie Blog Tour, and an especially big thank you to those of you who have already purchased a copy of the book. You guys rock!

However, if people bonding over serial murders isn't your cup of tea I suppose I can understand that, so I'll try to give you something else to look forward to. I promised a snippit from my next book V is for Virgin.

V is for Virgin is a YA contemporary drama about a girl who gets dumped for her decision to stay virgin until she’s married. After a bit of a public breakdown, she gets tired of the ridicule and decides to start a school-wide campaign to rally support for her cause. The controversy catches the entire nation’s attention when a famous rock star learns about Valerie and decides to take her abstinence as a personal challenge. 

Hopefully this book sparks a little bit of thought from those who read it. It’s about knowing who you are, making choices for yourself, and standing up to peer pressure. (In a fun, sexy, getting-chased-by-hot-rock-stars kind of way…)

I think it’s a little more risqué than my first two books, (with the subject matter being sex, that was sort of inevitable) but it’s still relatively clean. For a book all about sex there's not actually any sex in it lol. Hopefully people really enjoy it because I had a lot of fun with it, and am very proud of it. 

This is just a tiny teaser...

“You’d really play an entire concert, for free, just to go on a date with me?”

“Looks that way, doesn’t it?”

“Why?” I asked.

Kyle’s eyes dropped briefly to the V hanging from my neck and his frown melted into a cocky smile. “I can’t resist a good challenge.”

That’s what I thought. “Well, I’m afraid you have a problem then, Kyle.”

“What’s that?”

“I never back down from a challenge either.” I pointed to the jeans I was wearing. “This is one pair of pants you’ll never get into.”

“Ah, but you still have a whole closet full of others, and at least one very sexy skirt, don’t you?”

“None of which you’ll ever get your hands on either.”

Kyle crossed his arms over his chest, studying me with a gleam in his eyes. “So that’s how this is going to go?”

I matched his posture and then threw his own words back at him. “Looks that way, doesn’t it?”

So there you have it. The book is V is for Virgin. It comes out this December. I should have a cover to share with you pretty soon. I've seen the mock up and it's fabulous!

If you're feeling awesome, share this teaser on twitter!
