Review: Pretty Virgin by Alexa Riley




Published June 2019

Blurb: Skyler left a home that was cold, distant, and filled with animosity. She was desperate to get away and the second she was free, she swore she’d never let that happen to her again. So why did the one man she’s ever had feelings for ghost her so completely? Jason was everything she wanted and then one day he was gone. When a bump in with a stranger makes her the damsel in distress, she’s shocked to find Jason nearby like an angry, jealous bull.


Jason did the hardest thing of his life when he stepped away from Skyler. He thought he was doing the right thing, because everything inside of him was screaming to make her his. His instant love for her was consuming and all he wanted to do was smother her with attention. What kind of life is that for any woman? But he never went far. When he took her eyes off her for two seconds, however, that was exactly long enough for her to find trouble. When she shows up with his brother at the family dinner, he finally sees that staying away is no longer an option.


Warning: The only reason he backed off is because he WANTED HER TOO MUCH! Can you even imagine how wonderful this hero is? It’s over-the-top cray-in-love and we are living for it. Find out why the grouchy older brother is so pissed off all the time. *whispers* It’s because of the woman he loves. We promise to do you right!


May be spoilers:

Pretty Virgin is the 1st in the Rags to Riches series. It has 8 chapters and 2 epilogues and ist about Jason and Skyler. This is a second chance love story, I believe.

They were both in love with the other, but Jason thought he wanted her too much and that he was already too obsessed with her. So she hasn’t seen him in months, but he’s been keeping a close eye on her.

They come in contact again when she shows up with his brother for dinner at his mom’s. Things move really fast from there. I’m glad we don’t have to wait very long before they are together.

She really believes that she’s not worthy of anyone’s affections because of her family.

I really loved Jason. She did that he was dating someone, but it was just his sister.

She’s a virgin. Lots of steam. No real drama, no cheating between mcs, no real ow/om drama.

Great little story. I do wish he hadn’t have left her as she’s been made to feel like she’s nothing all her life and that didn’t help, but it does make for a good storyline.

Epilogue is a month out, then 6 years later. They are happily married with a daughter and pregnant. Great read. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.  Thanks for reading. Hope you check it out.
