3.5 - Another entertaining and stimulating smutty read!

Yep, I'm officially hooked on Jenika Snow's writing style and her addictive stories. Virgin is book #2 in A Real Man series which told Isabel and Quinn’s story. This author definitely knows how to write a sexy as sin book and sugary-sweet erotica!

Quinn and Isabel met when they were 10 years old, became inseparable and best friends. As the years went on, their relationship grew stronger, their friendship tighter and their feelings evolved in

If you're looking for something short and hot, this is definitely for you.

You'll need to turn your brain off for this one, though.

This was a late night audio for me.

Go buy the audiobook and enjoy.

You'll find some clichés here and there, and I did roll my eyes at all the typical possessive "alpha" lines, but they won't stop you from following the story.


“You were mine before you knew it.”

Short. Hot. Sweet. Beautiful.

This was a very short story, yet so full of love and passion. I have no idea why it took me so long to read it, and when I did, I was blown away!

Quinn first met Isabel when they were ten. He protected her from being bullied, and since then, they’d become best friends. He knew that he fell in love with her the moment he saw her and she was the world to him, but had never told her. He was afraid if she knew it, their friendsh

I'm really glad I bought this story on Amazon. The blurb is amazing and just what I've been looking for in a short book. Alexa Riley fans, this one's so for you, seriously! It's super sweet with OTT hero and not an annoying heroine, also the plot is cute. What more could you want, right? OK, no action there, sorry, but still this a wonderul story about two yound people, who've been friends for forever and now want to take the next step in their relationship. Of course there is one plot

Short, sweet and hot.

Bit too much repetitiveness with their names and she may want to get the constant gushing between her legs sorted out, but still enjoyable.

Quinn and Isabel are just 18 years old, still in school, best friends since they were 10, secretly in love with each other and both virgins.

The will admit their feelings after Isabel's family decides to move in another town...And they will finally become one under the stars.

A simple, totally safe story.
Lots of "You are mine" and "I am yours".
Two points of view.
Two main sex scenes: their first time where everything is described in EVERY detail and another one after two years together.

3.5 stars!

My goodness this was insanely hot, a short read but hot! The MC's were so sweet and in love with each other, with the hero being OTT possessive, but here's something different, his a "virgin" I liked that they were both each other's first.
Definitely enjoyed this short, and super sexy novella I know I would of rated it higher if it would of been a bit longer. I wanted more and that's always a good thing....I have to say that epilogue was just perfect though. <3

4.25 stars! Such a sweet, sexy book! I only wish it was longer and they were older but I still enjoyed this one very much :)

4.5+ stars

Both were always devoted to each other.
They met when they were 10yrs old and became best friends.
Now at 18, They confess their love for each other.
They are each other's first.

Lovely book *_* :3
Short but worth it =)
**4.5 stars**

What a sweet and hot little read! You can't get much better than two virgins who have been together since they were kids...definitely soul mates. My biggest complaint...I wanted more..more of these two and marriage and babies.

Short and sweet, but also kind of boring.

A safer book you will never find.
They are each other everything and have always been. For me it was cute and hot but very drama less. I don't mind cause sometimes you need less drama.
It would have been 5 stars if they had given an epilogue with a baby or two.
The next book in this series looks good also.
Can't wait
Great read and just hit the sweet spot for me.
If a quick, sexy read is what you are looking for then this is the book for you.
Isabel and Quinn have been the best of friends since they were ten years old..They have grown up together, and instead of feeling like family, they end up falling in love/lust with each other. When Isabel's family decides they need to move due to her Father's job, Quinn wants to make sure she knows his true feelings for her. From that point on, there is a ton of sex, and then the readers get some great epilogues.

This "A Real Man" series by Jenika Snow is scorching hot! It is a short read, but in my opionion, it packed a good story in such a small package.

Quinn and Isabel have been friends since they were 10 years old. They each loved each other but was afraid to express their feeling for fear of losing the other. So they remained as close as two people could be, while never professing their true feelings. Quinn finally decides he is going to tell Isabel how he feels and Isabel gives him shocking news..

This was kind of cute? I'm a sucker for young love stories, and the fact that both characters were virgins was a nice change.

The editing in this is atrocious, though. The tense changes from paragraph to paragraph and there were some words that were just plain wrong. Another run through would have picked most of these issues up.

And this is going to sound completely whack coming from me, cause I curse like a sailor most of the time.... But I just don't think there needs to be so much swearing ? E

4.5 stars. I loved this story. Although the MCs in this book are young they weren't written really young so I just let that part go in my mind. It was so refreshing to have a friends to lovers story where the H isn't out whoring around so as not to think about how much he wants the h. Quinn was absolutely 100% dedicated to Isabel in this story. No other girl would do. He proved he would move mountains to be with her. My only complaint was how short it is. But there is a story here too. I just wi ...more

Awww this one was a winner for me. Sexy and sweet. Young love, as some of you may know, is a favorite of mine. Quinn is a delightful package with all the bad boy stuff we love but 100% owned by Isabel. She's the only girl he's ever wanted and the things he does for and to her... phew! /fans self. This is definitely a good one as a cleanse between heavy books or if the hero of your last book was an @$$. Quinn will fix you right proper :-p ...more

Review is similar to diets / weights articles you find on magazines (i.e Women's Health Mag) .

Why eating less and exercising more doesn't always lead to weight loss


The story is short, others find it very sweet but not me, too far fetched to believe (I know, I know, it's smut but I still want it to be relatable at some level) and boring.

Is this truly the

I thought that any over-the-top sweet story would work for me anytime. Unfortunately, this book just proved myself wrong. It was an okay read would be the best way to describe it. Although Quinn and Isabel had an admirable relationship since they were kids, it just bordered on obsession. If I was any of their parents, I would be pulling my hair out. LOL! This was all predictable and would have worked best for me another time. It just didn't at this point.

Don't mind me, apparently right now I'm the grinch of friends to lovers...

And then I read this one after reading Say you're mine. It seemed like too much for me and was about to drop it.
But I didn't, and I can't regret it. Not that it was life changing or something but was nice enough. Better than the other book I mentioned.

I had an issue with the word fuck and derivatives... Seems like our hero's vocabulary wasn't that ample. Even though he was supposed to be the smart one finishing high school

Sweet smut with young love,my favorite of this series so far,again a cute epilogue.
Dec 12, 2016 rated it it was amazing
This book is a lot better than book 1. I love how devoted they are to each other. Their love is so strong and it's wonderful to read.

The story is about Quinn, 18 and Isabel, 18.

At the age of 10, Quinn became Isabel's protector. Someone made her cry and he defended her. After that, no one even dares to mess with her.

They hadn't been apart for more than a day. They're inseparable. Best friends and in love but they're both scared to ruin everything between them until she needs to move away.

Another sweet yet hot short story with amazing hero from Jenika Snow. She really writes some of the best sweet alphas.

I should have known from the title. So I read this book a few days ago and I am cataloging all that I have read in the past couple of weeks. So I see the title in my library and read the description and I could not recall a single thing about the book.

I love you drake

Anywho, I decided to scroll down to the reviews to remember and then it finally struck me that there is nothing worthy of remembering in this stupid book..

I love you too dean

1.5 stars.

I was in need of some brain candy and this fit the bill. I don't enjoy erotica, so I skipped a lot of this, but the story was so sweet. There wasn't too much angst and it was a totally safe read. With simplistic writing and no real character or plot development, I can't rate this any higher. But it did make me squee on the inside. Ah, young love and one and onlys? Adorable.

Really sweet and short. H/h are best friends since they were young and both are virgins as they waited for each other. I’m quite impressed how Quinn and Isabel really wanted their relationship to work and going as far as for Quinn to relocate even before finishing senior year at their town.

This one was better than the first one. Good thing I decided to give this author another chance. This was a cute story. No drama, insta-love and all that jazz. I normal hate instalove in novels but since this is a novella and smut, I can handle it.

Our hero Quinn is a virgin. He has been saving himself for his best friend Isabel who he has been in love with since he saved her from a bully at 10 years old. Even though he is soft and sweet to Isabel, he is anything but that to everyone else.

I went into this book knowing I was probably going to want more... and I was right. I would have loved a full length version of this smutty & lovely book, but I guess I will take what I can get! It was a great novella that gave me a wonderful short reprieve from school work.
