Online virile.com dating columnist Dane Martin has no plans to give up his reign as bachelor extraordinaire. He has a reputation to uphold, especially with the upcoming release of his book Coming on Strong.
Holly Winters, everyone’s favorite girl next door, thanks to her blog of the same name, gives advice, but she doesn’t always take it. When she meets Dane Martin, every fiber of her being warns her to turn tail and run. Instead, she risks her future as an authority on relationships, jeopardizing her upcoming self-help book for women struggling to find commitment among the Virile sycophants.
Has the Girl Next Door tamed the most Virile man alive, or is she just another notch on the bedpost?
This novella is about two online blogs who are set up and couldn’t be any more different. Dane Martin is a typical man-whore who not only scores for himself but helps his followers land a quick lay. He is everything Holly Winters despises when it comes to men. She is looking for the perfect match and encourages her followers to take their time and develop a steady relationship. Holly may be attracted to Dane when they first meet but he is everything she isn’t looking for no matter how hot the chemistry between the two of them is. While Dane is looking for chemistry, Holly is looking for a more meaningful relationship. When they are encouraged to spend more time together one will give in but which one?
Although I enjoyed the banter between these two, I felt like the story fell a little flat for me. Since it is a novella, the character development was lacking due to its length. Since it was short, I had hoped for a little more steamy sex scenes. Overall, it was a cute and funny story which I enjoyed.
