A brand new sinfully sexy standalone romantic comedy from bestselling authors Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente!
When you think about how easy it is to lose keys, phones, sunglasses and your dignity on social media, you might figure it’d be a cinch for me to ditch my V Card.
You’d be wrong.
At 25, I run a successful business, live in a fantastic apartment, and have fabulous friends to go out with any night of the week. And yet I’m still a card-carrying member of a club I don’t want to belong to anymore. Good thing I know just the man for the deflowering jobâmy brotherâs business partner and best friend.
Graham Campbell is charming, smart, and, Iâm told, oh-so-skilled in the sack. As long as I keep my eyes on the prize, thereâs no way this pluck-the-flower project could possibly complicate matters.
Work and pleasure. As the CEO of a fast-growing company, I’ve been enjoying both to the fullest. What do I do when the board throws me for an unexpected loop so I can keep my business in my hands? I enlist the help of my best friend’s little sister since she holds a big stake in the company. But then I learn there’s another big stake she wants.
The one between my legs.
I can do this. Seven nights to teach her everything I know in the bedroom. There’s no way I’ll fall for her, even though sheâs earning top grades in every single sinfully sexy lesson. And turns out Iâm learning something too. The trouble is I donât have the answer key to what to do when I fall hard for her.
And that throws a whole new hitch in my plans.

What do you get when two bestselling authors combine their immense writing talents? You get a sexy, amazing romance which it hot enough to melt your panties off. And that is precisely what Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente have delivered with their first collaboration, The V Card.
CJ has had a crush on her brotherâs best friend, Graham, for as long as she can remember. When her brother unexpectedly died Graham slipped into the unspoken roll as her protector. But what she really needs from Graham is his expertise in how to get a manâs attention. Knowing him to be the womanizer that he is, CJ knows heâs the one man she can trust with a short-term agreement to teach her everything she needs to know so she can finally rid herself of her virginity. The only problem is she just hopes she can keep ahold of her heart in the process.
Though Graham is shocked at the suggestion his best friendâs little sister makes, he quickly comes to the realization that he definitely wants to be the man to help her out. As the lessons begin and the intensity of the intimacy they share together increases, both of their hearts begin to become intertwined. Both Graham and CJ secretly share the inner fear that expressing their true feelings for the other could destroy the friendship and connection they have always shared. Will Graham and CJ continue to hide their feelings for one another or will they finally find the courage to share their secrets and open their hearts to a love that will last forever?
The V Card is a fantastic romance that will make your heart flutter while simultaneously make you seriously in need of a cold shower. The amazing connection between these two characters from the inception of their story pulled me into their hearts immediately. Despite Grahamâs reputation as a womanizer, he has always shared a closeness with CJ that he never experienced with any other woman. Once she wiggles her way into his soul, he finally realizes how special she is and admits to himself that a forever kind of love is a very real possibility, especially with CJ.
5 sizzling stars for Ms Blakelyâs and Ms Valenteâs first collaboration. I definitely hope it wonât be the last. Loved, Loved, Loved The V Card.

As we settle in, the busboy brings the waters, and I cut to the chase. âSo, I hate to crash the Sunday Funday vibe, but I invited you to brunch with an ulterior motive. I need a favor.â
She spreads her napkin on her lap with a raised brow. âWhat kind of favor?â
âI need you at next Mondayâs board meeting. As you know, we lost an important account last month when Beaux RÃªves in Paris went with a cheaper option. Obviously, they arenât our only account, not by a long shot. But given how volatile the industry has been lately, I need to make it crystal clear to the shareholders that selling isnât the right path. With the number of mergers and acquisitions going on, theyâre seeing dollar signs, but quick money isnât the answer. Thatâs where you come in.â
âYou want them to hear from me because of my shares?â she asks, her brow furrowing. âWe donât have anything close to a majority.â
Though CJ inherited Seanâs share of the business when he passed away, thatâs not why I need her at the meeting. CJ has a way of putting people at ease, of winning their trust and confidence. Sheâs a successful business owner in her own rightâher accessories company Love Cycle Creations is growing by leaps and bounds every year. Plus, she was courted early on by an accessories conglomerate and she declinedâtotally the right call, as her company is now a rising star in her field.
I nod. âOf course, but thatâs not the only reason. I need to convince them that now is not the time to explore getting into bed with a huge multinational retailer. And to do that, itâll help to hear from someone with an insiderâs stock holdings and an outsiderâs perspective. I want them to hear from you in particular since you went through something so similar with Love Cycle.â
âOn a much smaller scale, though. My company is tiny compared to Adored.â
âSize doesnât matter.â I pause to wiggle an eyebrow for effect. âWell, in this case.â
A faint blush spreads on her cheeks. âYou and the innuendo.â
âI do love innuendo. I also love Adored. Thatâs why I want to keep it the way it isâgrowing, profitable, and independent. I donât want it swallowed by some faceless corporate giant.â A smile teases her lips for a moment and then disappears. I canât read her at all, so Iâm on the edge of my seat, waiting for an answer. âPlease, CJ,â I add when she stays silent for a long beat. âI need you.â
âYou need me,â she echoes, her brow smoothing as she sighs. She takes a drink of water, sets down her glass, and runs the tip of her tongue across her lips.
I watch her tongue move, wondering why Iâve never noticed how amazing her mouth is. She has the bee-stung lips of a cover girl, in a shade of pink so deep it brings to mind flushed, hot, intimate things.
Things I should be thinking of in her presence.
In anyoneâs presence.
Resist, Campbell, resistâ¦
Finally, just as Iâm gearing up to beg, she looks up, a mysterious smile curving her lips. âI know exactly what you need, Graham.â
Damn, that soundedâ¦naughty.
I reach for my water glass, needing something to cool me down since innocent words from a woman Iâve known forever are sending my thoughts straight into the gutter.
âBut before I agree to your request,â she adds, her fingers drumming lightly on the white tablecloth, âI need something from you, too. Something Iâve been thinking long and hard about. Very long. And very hard.â Her eyes meet mine, trouble flickering in her gaze.
Glass halfway to my lips, I freeze.
Christ. Who the hell is this sexy-as-sin woman, and what has she done with CJ?
âLauren Blakely and Lili Valente are a match made in ROM-COM heaven! THE V CARD was an OUTSTANDING romantic comedy that has heart, humor, and an INSANE amount of chemistry! I couldn’t take my eyes off the pages for even a minute!â
