Can Teddy Hamilton please narrate everything? I love how he can go from the sweet, boy next door to the dominant, alpha character with such ease. His performance as Adam was perfection and coupled with Elena Wolfe, Joe Arden, Maxine Mitchell, this audio really is incredible. The Virgin Gift will have listeners more than hot and bothered while enjoying this sexy tale. Even though I previously read this novella, the narration took it to nuclear levels of hot!

I am really loving Lauren Blakely's After Dark series! The Virgin Gift is a sexy and sensual read that will have readers fanning themselves throughout. This friends to lovers novella features neighbors Adam and Nina. This is book 2 in the series, but can be read as a standalone. Previous characters from the first book do appear, however, and that is where we first meet our hero and heroine.

I really enjoyed Nina's sexual exploration. She was timid at first to express her wishes and desires, but once the genie was out of the bottle, there was no going back. Adam was equal parts tender and dominant and couldn't have been a better "teacher" to help Nina with her list. Yes, things move very quickly between them as they try to navigate being temporary lovers and maintaining their friendship, but the initial attraction was already there, so it wasn't hard to believe that things would go this way. I liked the mini side story of Adam's friend, Brandon, and my kindle nearly melted when Nina and Adam crossed item number 11 off the list. HOT!

This was a quick and sexy read and I'm excited for Jake and Kate's story next!
