So here's the low down. This isn't your usual guy and girl coming together in some sort of quirky roommate situation. This is a house with multiple roommates (two guys, three girls).
The heroine is a virgin, and she's pretty unhappy about it. She finally meets a guy who treats her right and she feels she's ready to commit to being with. But then all of a sudden her roommate and good friend starts to act differently. Does he just want what he suddenly can't have?
YA, no cheating, no cliffhanger and a cute HFN ending with serious talk of a HEA :)
Unfortunately this is a premise that has been done before, and there really isn’t anything special that sets this apart. It is more of a YA story than NA because it is fade to black when the deed occurs. I likely won’t continue with the series because the characters didn’t really catch my interest and I’m not a fan of YA. It was a cute, easy, fluffy story that would be great for a quick afternoon read or at the beach. It is easily read in one sitting.
When I first started reading this book, I was sort of annoyed. Here was this chick (Jenn), going on and on about her virginity and how she wants to get rid of it. Then you start finding out about the things she's gone though... I'll say it straight up, I think I'd have had a complex too if I went through what she did!! Do I agree with how she goes about this, no, but does it make for an entertaining and enlightening read to see what happens to her and how she changes even her own point-of-views on things through the book? Yes.
This isn't just a love story, or a path Jenn sets herself on. This book is more than that and I enjoyed that part of it more than the rest. As for Jenn herself, she just feels lacking due to not having experiences. This too changes over the course of the book. The character is engaging however and can make you feel more than one emotion. Amusement, annoyance, heart break, angst, sympathy... just to name a few.
You might be wondering if we have a hero. Well, we do! The thing is, I don't want to spoil anything by telling you about that bit. That actually makes this review a bit challenging to write. I was -shocked- at a few points through this book and wide-eyed as well because I wasn't expecting what happened. This is coming from a person who typically has book and movie plots both figured out in the first thirty minutes. Well, I wasn't expecting this one.
For those wondering if she goes out and hurls herself at every man she sees, Jenn doesn't do that. She's very safe about it, in fact. She may want to lose her virginity but she's at least sensible. She doesn't put herself in situations that are going to lead to her own self harm.
Would I recommend this book to people? Oh yeah, I would. I loved the writing. My one thing would be that if you're not a fan of first person POV books, then you might not enjoy it as much, however definitely worth it if you want to give it a shot. I'm not a huge fan of first person POV myself and I -loved- it.
Writing style: Jennifer’s POV only
What I enjoyed most about this novel…
Easy-to-read / Entertaining / Virgin trope / Roommates-turned-lovers trope / College roommates I wish I’d had kind of friends / HEA
Story rating: ★★★★☆ I’m a sucker for the virgin romance trope, so this book was like catnip for me. Without revealing spoilery details, I felt Jennifer’s quest to lose her virginity without further crazy mishaps didn’t play out as typically as I thought it might. I like the friendship vibe all the roommates had going on. It was a no brainer to download the next roommate’s story, Brat.
I binge read V-Card (Sharing Spaces, #1) by Alicia Michaels, Brat (Sharing Spaces, #2) by Alicia Michaels and Thin (A New Adult Contemporary Romance) (Sharing Spaces Book 3) by Alicia Michaels, and of the three novels, V-Card was by far my favorite.
I believe that is because the challenges in the subsequent two novels were just way heavier in theme than I usually prefer. Nevertheless, I’m glad I had them all to read and got to live several college experiences I never had vicariously through these characters.

Jennifer is turning twenty one in two months and has decided that to become a woman she needs to lose her virginity, there have been times in the past but each of her encounters with trying sex have ended in disasters, albeit very amusing but once you read about them you can see why before now there has been no hurry for her to repeat the encounters. So far she has found no one that really appeals around campus and is running out of hope. That is until she offers to be one of her roommates Christian’s pretend girlfriend for a party his parents are throwing and that’s where she meets Dain. He’s perfect in every way considerate, caring and makes feel special but is he really everything that she thinks or is there a side to him she has yet to meet and why is she thinking of Luke her other roommate so much? In the end who will she choose Dain who makes everything seem so perfect or Luke who she’s known forever and makes her feel everything?
All the characters in this book are very different but fit together really well, honestly looking forward to reading more in this series and more from this author.
