Bravo. What a great follow up to Virgin. I loved it even more. I have so many highlights from all the laughing I did. Here are some of my faves:
I felt his p***s harden against my v****a. It rubbed against it and I moaned in pleasure. "Ow," he cried out. "What?" I asked in surprise. "Nothing, just a bit spiky," he said, and carried on kissing me. "Sorry?" I said in a strangled voice. He thought my pubes were spiky. They hurt his p***s. My mother****ing pubes were ruining my life yet again.
It reminded me of the excruciating agony of getting a full Brazilian wax. Thank God I had eschewed those p*rn-originated pubic styles in favor of my trimmed, spiky little hedgehog. I gazed at it fondly and gave it a small stroke. Eight fifteen wasn't too late. I definitely had time for a quick wank.
"Is it okay?" I asked uncertainly. I was doing the Pilates table pose above him. My head was hovering by his p***s and my entire nether regions were inches away from his mouth - and his nose. Oh God, his nose. He would be able to smell everything and I'd pooed just before our date. I started to wonder if this was a good idea.
It was kind of nice to be home alone. It was fun spending time with Nick, but I still didn't feel like I could a hundred percent be myself in front of him. I hadn't farted in days.
Now that Ellie has lost her V card, she thought that would be just the beginning to having an enviable sex life. But she's still plagued with insecurities and men are not beating down her door. So she tries Internet dating sites and we're treated with the hilarity of those disasters.
While Ellie and her girlfriends are out being fabulous, Ellie meets Nick. He's a fit banker and he's easy to talk to. But he's still kind of obsessed with his ex. Ellie doesn't make this a problem though, she sees Nick as the perfect guy to have casual sex with. She's sworn not to get attached too soon like she did with her first. Ellie and Nick's sex life is very "real life." That's what I loved so much about this book. All of Ellie's ramblings in her head have gone through ours as well at some point. Ellie makes her fair share of mistakes but I absolutely loved her transformation.
This book is not about finding The One, it's about finding The O, loving yourself and all of your flaws, friendship, and empowerment. If you're a fan of girl power movies like Bridesmaids and Trainwrecked you'll love Not That Easy. Well freaking done!
Ellie lost her V card in VIRGIN. She thought once she got past that obstacle her sex life would explode. It turns out, it’s not that easy. Everyone around her is having tons of sex, and she is stuck with a single bed with roommates that are in some form of a relationship. So, she is completely surrounded by it, and yet she has already hit a slump in her sex life. Well, NO MORE dammit! She decides she needs to get out there and ‘slut’ it up! Online dating seemed like a good idea at the time. Add on some peer pressure and the need to have better sex stories to tell her mates…GAME ON!
Follow Ellie on her continued journey of sexual self discovery. There are some ups and TONS of downs, but does she give up? NO WAY! She has guts, I will tell you that. I wish I was that confident when I was her age. Everything embarrassing that you think could happen during a sexual encounter, Ellie went through it. I only wish that my start to adulthood was this eventful. It’s messy, humiliating, and hilarious as hell. NOT THAT EASY acts as a guide-book of what NOT TO DO for young women. Other women will be able to walk down memory lane when they read about some of the situations that Ellie finds herself in. Like I said after I read VIRGIN, this isn’t a book I would usually choose due to the lack of romance in it, but I’ll say it again, I’m so glad I picked it up. It was incredibly entertaining, humorous, with tons of smart and witty banter. This was a definite winner for me.
