My Thoughts:  (3.5 Stars)
The Virginity Mission is set in Australia.  Mac/Willow is 21 years old, has graduated from University, and is on a science expedition in the jungle.  The one thing that is weighing on her mind a lot more than the science expedition is the fact that she hasn't lost her virginity yet, which is something she seeks to rectify on this trip.  Jason is the Army Sergeant in charge of the support team that is escorting the expedition.  He's in his late 20's, hot, very hot, and when Mac sees him, she can't take her eyes off of him.  There is just one problem.  There are strict rules about fraternization with the army is forbidden, which makes them both only want each other more.

The Virginity Mission is a short read, but is very sexy and steamy.  The story line was entertaining and I enjoyed it very much.  The story is told from Mac's POV.  I liked her and enjoyed watching her come out of her shell and blossom, something that Jason helps foster in her.  Jason is the quite type, but he is really hot.  I also enjoyed the secondary characters in the story, and the romance was great.  Overall, this is a great short contemporary read and if you are a fan of the New Adult genre, then this is something you might want to check out.


  1. Whoa, NICE cover! Very attention-getting. I'm glad you liked this, and I've also found that many books classified as erotica feel more like a really steamy romance to me, too. Great review!

  2. good to know this one isn't too over the top with the sex scenes, that is always my biggest worry with erotica.


Thanks for your comments. I love hearing from you!
