The Accidental Virgin by Valerie Frankel

The Accidental Virgin by Valerie Frankel
2003, William Morrow Paperback

Synopsis: From: Venus, Goddess of Love, 120 Main, Mt. Olympus

To: Stacy Temple, lapsed temptress

Stacy, Stacy, Stacy.

You were so promising at the beginning: Sexy, smart, personable and funny. Great on dates and really great afterward-if you know what I mean. But this is a sad state of affairs; or, in your case, non-affairs! It's been nearly an entire year and you haven't had your way with even ONE eligible male. You've been working so hard concocting sexy lingerie for -- and really, Stacy, if that little pink velvet bustier didn't put you in the mood, I don't know what to say! -- that you haven't even tried to be coaxed out of your own!

Are you listening, Stacy? Seven days to find the perfect man -- or else!

Happy hunting!

The Good: The Accidental Virgin is light, funny and doesn't take itself too seriously. Stacey is extremely desperate to get laid and goes to ludicrous lengths to get the job done. The entire book is over-the-top but that's the appeal to reading a novel like this.

The Bad: The book is a very quick, very easy read. So quick and easy that it doesn't make a large impression and that makes it kind of forgettable.
