Her bosom heaved at an alarming rate as his rough hand found its way down to her soft, yet wiry briar patch...

Can you say briar patch in a romance novel? What about meat sword? That’s what it is…a meat sword, right, all meaty and sword like, slaying through the inner dungeons of a woman’s dark desires. What about breasts? Do bosoms really heave?

God, I have no idea what happens when private parts touch.

I’m a virgin trying to write a romance novel and can’t seem to write past a sex scene thanks to my lack of experience.

My two best friends encourage me to drop the pen for a while and gain some real life practice through multiple dating facets such as blind dates, online profiles, and random hookups.

But losing my virginity is proving to be tougher than expected…

I read the description to this book first and thought was ‘this sounds like a bit of fun!’ And because I have read and loved the first two books in Meghan’s Bourbon series, I was excited to give this one a go too. The Virgin Romance Novelist was quite an amusing read as I followed Rosie, as she explored her sexuality and the dating world.

Rosie… well, this girl often had me in stitches!! She is probably the most inexperienced twenty-three year old that I have heard of, but the things that she does has you laughing out loud, I tell you!! She goes on dates, which usually end in disaster; she opens little gifts and should really Google how to use them before diving in; and lands herself in a lot of uncomfortable situations!

There were a lot of great side characters too. Delaney knew that she was a virgin and was encouraging her to get out there. Henry didn’t realise and was willing to offer tips to help out. Jenny was helpful and set up a date for her. And there were a range of dates that were introduced and each added a little spice one way or another.

Even though this is – for the most part – an amusing read, it was also about relationship development. I could see a little spark escalating and had my fingers crossed that Rosie would figure it out. The book is told in the first person POV and I feel it made me closer to Rosie and experiencing her ups and downs right along with her. Meghan has done a tasteful job at tackling Rosie’s virginity and her lack of experience. I cannot wait to see what Meghan can come up with next!

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
