*** REVIEW*** Popping the Cherry by Aurelia B Rowl
Popping the Cherry by Aurelia B Rowl
You only get one first time . . .
From driving tests to relationships, Valentina Bell thinks she’s a failure, with a big fat capital F. At this rate, she’s certain she’ll be a virgin for ever. So Lena’s friends plan Operation: Popping the Cherry to help her find the perfect man first time.
Yet somehow disastrous dates with bad-boy musicians and fabulous evenings with secretly in-the-closet guys aren’t quite working out how Lena planned.
Soon Lena’s avoiding Operation: Popping the Cherry to spend time with comforting, aloof Jake, her best friend’s older brother, who doesn’t make her feel self-conscious about still clinging to her V card. But could Jake show Lena that sometimes what you’re looking for most is right by your side?
A FOREVER for the twenty-first century
I received a copy of this from the author in return for an honest review. Here goes:
At first I have to say I didn't think I was going to enjoy this story very much. I think it was the storyline of making losing your virginity an 'operation'. But actually it was really good!
I really liked the characters in the book, Lena and Jake being the main characters. Lena seemed a very sweet girl, only wanting to be like everyone else. Jake a very caring boy, who knows where he is going in life. The chemistry between the 2 has been captured perfectly with Aurelia's writing. I rooted for them from the very start, after Jake first pops into the book after Lena's bad night, where she finds herself needing rescuing.
The other characters were a nice addition too, Gemma being Lena's best friend, and Jake's sister added a nice middle person into the equation, And Nathan too, I liked him :)
I loved this story and found it hard to put down once I'd started.
If you like sweet YA stories, then definitely give this one a go!!!
