Publisher's Summary

I might still carry my V-card, but I know exactly what I want in a man. Smart, charming and oh-so-skilled. Too bad I haven't found him yet.

But maybe he's found me.

Because when my charming, laid-back next-door neighbor discovers a secret list I keep, he volunteers to work through every single item on it.

Including the last one - at the end, we walk away and stay friends.

I say yes to his offer, and that's when I discover another side to him.

A side I adore. A side I crave. He's commanding, intense, and everything I've ever wanted.

But as we check things off one by one, I find myself breaking the most important rule of all. And I have no idea what it will do to my heart.

Narrated by Elena Wolfe and Teddy Hamilton with special appearances from Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell.

BATTERIES REQUIRED

This book was so much more than I expected. I usually avoid Adult Virgin story lines but when Lauren Blakely released one I knew I had to at least give it a fair try and I am very surprised to say I really enjoyed this book. Nina isn't your typical innocent virgin, in fact the only thing innocent about her is that she hasn't actually had sex. She has a very dirty imagination and I think working in a sexual field helps her be more adventurous. Adam is the perfect guy next door and also has his own dirty side. The chemistry, the sex scenes and the dirty talk all set this book on fire. I mean the dirty talk alone was off the charts!!! Their story is HOT but it is also sweet and has the friends to lovers thing going on too.

In case I haven't said it enough in all my reviews, Lauren Blakely is seriously the queen of picking the perfect narration for her audiobooks. Elena Wolfe is always amazing and never disappoints but for me Teddy Hamilton stole this show! He was perfect for Adam because he has the regular nice guy sound which I love because it's so natural but he can also heat things up with his sexy bedroom voice. If this book was HOT, His narration made it even hotter!!!

Oh, my...my...

Oh, my...my...

There is just so so much to this story.

First off, Nina and Adam's friendship right from the beginning, is epic. Seeing these two together, even just as friends, makes the page sizzle. They just get each other. But once the "good stuff" comes into play, things really heat up.

I could go on and on about all the "good stuff" that is in this book and just how GOOD it is, but that would then be missing the point. This book is about TRUST. Trusting that you know yourself and your wants, trusting your partner, trusting your heart. The way these two characters trust each other is amazing and in the end, it leaves you with all the feels. ALL of them.

This book isn't for the pearl-clutchers, but is for anyone who wants to read about a couple who trusts each other explicitly, has great chemistry in and out of the bedroom and at the end of the day, wants to feel and squishy and giddy inside.

Hot!

This one’s a hot one! Nina and Adam were neighbors and good friends, while Adam was getting his condo painted he stayed in Nina’s spare bedroom and stumbled upon a list Nina had made. They had a great dynamic going and they definitely made it even hotter! I really want my own Adam. I loved Brandon’s little bit thrown in too. The narrators did a fantastic job!

The best friends to lovers

Nina and Adam will warm your heart as well as the rest of you. This is a great story of friends that become so much more and their journey to their HEA is filled with honest and open feelings. This is a great book on expressing how you feel and asking for what you need and not being afraid to do both. Loved everything about this book.

Teddy Hamilton, Elena Wolfe, Joe Arden, and Maxine Mitchell and a wonderful cast to tell this story. Teddy and Elena are perfect as Adam and Nina and Joe and Maxine are great as supporting characters. Loved listening from beginning to end.

I highly recommend this audiobook and it is worth the credit.

A Sexual Exploration

I am really loving Lauren Blakely's After Dark series! The Virgin Gift is a sexy and sensual story that will have listeners fanning themselves throughout. This friends to lovers novella features neighbors Adam and Nina. This is book 2 in the series, but can be enjoyed 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 (narrated by Joe Arden), and I nearly combusted when Nina and Adam crossed item number 11 off the list. HOT!

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

Simply amazing - highly recommend!

Some of my favorite narrators and a favorite Author definitely did not disappoint! I finished this last night on Audible and immediately listened again - INSTEAD OF SLEEPING! Soooooo good for so many reasons! Amazing narration performances by all! This is realistic, sweet, sexy, and EMPOWERING!

Seriously! Read this story if you can handle delicious, sex-positive, body-positive, brilliantly dirty awesomeness!

I listened in the AE package, but would definitely spend a credit on this. I'm looking forward to more stories in the series.

4.5 Dreamy Stars!

Wow, this second standalone novella in The Gift series by Lauren Blakely is another hot and steamy romance that is really a beautiful love story at it's core! Nina's profession is to capture her clients love and passion. They ask for her insight, but Nina has a secret she can't reveal. Nina is a virgin physically, but her dreams and desires are anything but innocent. When her good friend and sexy neighbor, Adam, accidentally finds her top 10 fantasies list, he knows he is the only man who can fulfill them for her. Adam has always been attracted to Nina, but saw her as a good girl, and his desires were too dirty for someone like her. Nina always saw Adam as the kind, funny, helpful friend and never as the passionate, dirty lover of her dreams. Now these two friends have found the adventurous lover they have always yearned for, to exploring the boundaries of all their fantasies. But when they both can't get enough of each other, will they be able to go back to being just friends? This After Dark story still has Blakely's signature witty banter, and great characters with explosive chemistry, but now has an even dirtier, passionate steam that I can't get enough of. It is made even better with the amazing narration by Teddy Hamilton, and Elena Wolfe, and cameos from Joe Arden, and Maxine Mitchell. Elena is always a joy to listen to as she effortlessly brings out all the fine nuances that make her characters feel authentic and real. I loved the perfect balance of how Teddy Hamilton portrayed Adams nice guy persona with his swoony, dominant sexiness. Blakely picks the perfect narrators to bring her stories to life, and I loved this swoony, passionate, hot and steamy romance!
