To be honest the ending kind of ruined it for me. Ruined Henry as well. I liked this guy until the end. He was so eager to jump another girl right after he got the girl of his dream? Ugh. I'm still angry about that one. And Rosie just overlooked it like it was her fault. She didn't even do anything but listen to her voicemail.
I wish I could erase that ending from my mind.
Other than the ending, the book was awesome. It was def one of the most hilarious book I've read. Rosie was dorky and cute and naive but also ballsy. She was willing to try things out of her comfort zone. She had me rolling on the ground with some of her incidents.
Henry was the perfect book bf until the end. He turned into a complete arse and I'm still jot over it. He didn't deserve Rosie in the end. If he was so in love with her for so long why was he always sleeping with other women. Made no sense. Typical arse I guess.
However, this is a funny book. There were many moments when I chortled to myself and a few where I laughed out loud. It's bawdy and sexual, but enjoyable to read. Rosie is a virgin at age 23 and decides that it's time to change that. Her roommate, Henry, offers advice and sometimes more as Rosie embarks on a series of dates that go disastrously wrong. Both Henry and Rosie have some growing up to do, but I enjoyed their relationship (though I kept hearing Henry's lines in my head in a British accent, probably because he calls Rosie 'love' a lot).
I'd probably read more books by this author, though I'd prefer it if they were edited first.
Second, the language sometimes was just too sexual for a romance fiction novel..it borderlined on erotica, which if I wanted an erotica book, I would have purchased one. The conversations that Rosie has with her roomate, especially Daleaney are really unrealistic borderline socially awkward. I have very open minded friends and even at one point, very close roomates in college. There is some respect in keeping your sex life private for you and your partner. The conversations with her roomates seemed forced, innapropriate and just weird at times. I really wanted to see another side to Derk and Deleaney's relationship other than kinky sex..doesn't seem like that marriage will last and Rosie seems to think they are "the perfect couple"..eep.
Anyways, aside from the major predictablity of who Rosie loses her virginity to, and the tedious flirtation with that character leading up to the act (yes OK we get it, you "secretly" have feelings for eachother..the audience gets it and it doesn't need to be built up to death) I think the book was a funny and light read. I think the author should consider going into erotica too...her sexual descriptions were pretty good for that genre!
Rosie's rag tag team of friends Henry, Delaney, Derk and Jenny keep you laughing, as every conceivable disastrous event could occur on her dates, from split pants to vomiting, Rosie's adventure into the world of dating and sex is laugh out loud funny.
Rosie's naivety is thoroughly endearing, her quirky friends and work place not only ensured that I was invested in her life but it was her outlook on life and her relationships with her friends that had me falling in love with her. Her honesty, her frank conversations with those around her. Her run ins with Sir Licks-a-Lot, her evil cat nemesis had me giggling.
There's so much heart in the The Virgin Romance Novelist, often I find books that do humour well are lacking in heart and story, almost as if light and funny negates having a great story, but Quinn had both in spades. Funny, often irreverent, with just the right amount of heat and heart. This was my first Meghan Quinn book, but it definitely wont be my last.
