A.J. Bennett’s debut novel Now or Never had fans dying to read more from the newly buzzed about author. I am happy to announce that she has released her second New Adult genre novel, Unintentional Virgin. Her debut novel was a great read that I highly recommend. Her new release, however, is something that I could relate to more than any New Adult book I have read to date.
Before I give you my review, here is a little more information on the book:
Karma Points is cursed. Cursed with a stupid name and the inability to lose her virginity. She's on a mission to lose her virginity before she turns twenty if it's the last thing she does.
One night, her good friend Eva brings her to an underground club where Karma meets a tattooed bouncer. He’s far from the clean-cut type she normally falls for, which makes her think this finally might be the night she crosses the threshold of womanhood.
Excited, she goes home with the bouncer named Jax and as always, her dreams crash down once again. Jax cannot believe she is willing to give away her virginity to a stranger she met at a club. As the only son with five sisters and a widowed mom, he can't morally go through with it, even though he's never been more tempted in his life.
Unwilling to let her walk away he strikes a deal. Karma has to spend three weeks dating him and then decide if she wants to have sex or walk away.

Unintentional Virgin is (like I said) one of the only New Adult genre books that I could relate to on a realistic level. The story is about a girl named Karma Points. But, don’t let that name fool you into thinking this is a silly book; I thought the same thing you probably did when I read her name in the book synopsis (it will make sense, I promise). Karma never had any luck when it came to losing her virginity. Unintentional Virgin is a love story, a story of a girl who finds herself becoming a woman, and an all-around well written piece of literature that will make you laugh along with all of Karma’s ups and downs.
If you read this book, you not only get to feel like you actually bond with her two gay dads, but you get to know the very sexy Jax (swoon worthy doesn't even describe this fire fighter/bouncer). Karma makes a drunken decision that sets her on a path to do things she never thought possible, and just maybe, finally lose her virginity.
Karma was my favorite character, but her vile mother came in a close second. She is one of those characters you just love to hate and can’t get enough of.
If you want a steamy and truly touching read, this is your book. Unintentional Virgin had me (and will hopefully have you as well) question if I am truly living my life to the fullest. And that is something I can say I have never gotten from reading a New Adult genre book...or any book that I have read in the past 5 years at least.
I loved A.J. Bennett’s debut novel, Now or Never, but Unintentional Virgin has stolen my heart and will not let go. I recommend this book so highly, 5 stars isn't even enough for me to rate it. Bennett is definitely the author to keep your eyes open for; I know I am keeping a close eye on her for her next release!
A.J. Bennett lives in Nashville, TN with her husband and bulldog. She's addicted to coffee, popcorn and books. Becoming an author has been a lifelong dream, and she's extremely excited about her positive feedback from her debut novel Now or Never. A.J. can’t wait to release her next book; and of course to continue writing for all of her new fans.
