Kate Crawford’s always had a scorching attraction to her father’s best friend, sexy hotelier Graham Davenport. Now she’s going to study in Europe, but she wants to realize her secret wish and lose her virginity to Graham. After all, she’s not a teenager anymore and ready for some Adult X-rated fun.

He doesn’t want to betray the man who helped him turn around his life, but this woman is no longer a teenager with a crush. And her desire unleashes secret passions and fantasies that neither of them can deny…
Alright, so when I saw the synopsis for Forbidden Virgin I absolutely knew I had to read this book, and read it I did. Now, I think the idea behind this book was great. The storyline of a younger girl with her father’s best friend had me totally intrigued. However, this book fell a little short of my expectations for it. It was an okay read for me, I didn’t love it and I didn’t hate it. There were definitely some points that I enjoyed this book more then others. Some of it was super hot, but some of it fell flat. Kate shows up to Graham’s resort with the intention to woo him into her bed, because she has been saving her v-card for him and only him, since she was like 16. Which I won’t lie is a touch creepy, but to each their own I guess. Anyway, as much as he tries to fight it she manages to have her way and finally persuade him into her bed.
So between the characters, I was not much of a fan of Kate. I’m not going to lie she was a little annoying. Not to mention a little bit over the top dramatic. Graham was a little bit better, he seemed to have a little bit more believability to him. Now, there is one big problem I have with book and one smaller problem. The bigger problem for me with this book was the speed of it. I understand that a lot of romances use insta-love as a basis for the relationship that they provide, and sometimes it works, here it did not. With Kate and Graham it was a little ridiculous how fast they fell into things. Kate’s has quite a mouth on her and she doesn’t hold back, she jumps right in to tell Graham what she wants from him…which is a lot.Graham manages to fight it a little bit but not much. It was just hard for me to imagine all of this crazy stuff happening so therefore I think it was harder for me to connect with the story. The second, smaller, issue I had with this book was that Kate was always going “wouldn’t it be sexist if…(insert thing happening here)”. This drove me CRAZY. It really was just repetitive and not needed.
Overall, there were some parts of this I enjoyed, and some parts of it that I disliked. However, true to the dedication in this book Graham did take me on quite a ride…and I do have to admit that he himself was kinda swoon worthy!! If you are looking for a fun, naughty, quick read check this one out. Just because it wasn’t completely my cup of tea doesn’t mean it won’t be yours!
Overall rating: 3/5 stars
