Title – The Virgin Romance Novelist
Author – Meghan Quinn
Publication Date – April 2, 2015
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 don’t think I have ever laughed as hard as I did while reading The Virgin Romance Novelist by Meghan Quinn. This book is truly a romantic comedy at its finest! Filled with every piece of bad luck you could encounter on a date (and the anticipation), this novel will keep you chuckling from the moment you begin until you’re wiping away the happy tears at the end.
“It looked like a broken finger, a right hand turn sign, an Allen wrench, a drunk pencil, a worm with a broken neck, a damn garden hoe. It was not a penis.”
Rosie has a job she hates, but yearns for a career as a novelist. However, seeing that she is still a virgin, she is having a hard time finding the proper inspiration for the saucy scenes that she wants to write. With the help of her two roommates, she begins to travel down a journey of dating and that is where the fun truly begins. Quinn writes this character so ridiculously that you can’t help but absolutely love her. Between the horrible luck she has with men and the witty inner dialogue, I couldn’t get enough. Although I would hope that most women don’t experience the things she did, she is somehow relatable. Her inner thoughts were spot on with some that at least I’ve had so to see them voiced aloud made the book that much funnier to me. I spent half the book thinking this poor woman, and the other half wondering where exactly Quinn was drawing her inspiration from!
“Who knew getting your boob squeezed was such an integral part of being turned on? Hell, they were dangling milk sacs on a woman’s body, but Jesus, Mary, and Joseph were they a pleasure button that shot straight to your lady cactus with a hydration mechanism.”
The storyline is definitely cute and fun. I appreciated seeing the different scenarios that Rosie found herself in. She’s written as someone who spends so much of her time in books, so when comments were made regarding that fact, it was almost as if it were me. By doing so, it allowed the reader to become completely consumed, almost as if the book were a manual of sorts rather than just another romantic comedy. Furthermore, I loved how everything unfolded with the ultimate romance she experienced. There was something so perfect about the questions raised and the journey she went on to get to that final resting place.
“Love is funny. It comes in all different shapes and sizes.”
Admittedly, this is my first Meghan Quinn novel. However, I love her style, her wit, and her bold approach at things not often talked about. If an author can make me laugh and make me cry within the confines of the same book, he or she is top notch in my book! I’m so grateful to have stumbled upon The Virgin Romance Novelist and I undoubtedly can’t wait to see what this wonderful author will come up with next. If you’re looking for a read that will have you laughing for days, definitely look no further and give this one a click!

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!
