Trying to lose your virginity at a New Year’s party isn’t the best plan. The only things worse? When the guy turns you down but you still have to work with him.
I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but here goes. My name is Emmie and I’m a virgin. I know what you’re thinking. How could a twenty-eight-year-old woman who runs her own company not have turned in her V-card by now?
While I won’t go into details about it right now, I will admit that I’ve been a bit busy with work. Time flies when there’s a media empire to build. But I decided this year to make things right. A new year’s resolution. To find someone to make me a woman before the clock strikes twelve.
It’s all going to plan. I find the hottest guy at the party. He is more than willing to come up to my bedroom. Then I make the mistake of trying to kiss him. Not only did I not pop my cherry, but I can’t ever look Jon in the eyes again.
Hi, I’m Jon. The one Emmie tries to seduce on New Year’s. Things are still a bit fuzzy about that night, but I do remember Emmie. She’s beautiful and knows what she wants. Emmie is a guy’s wet dream. She’s my wet dream.
I’m in control of my life. I run a successful company with my sister and work hard to do things right. I make sure things get done right without a hair out of place. But when I’m around Emmie it’s as if I met my match. My work suffers and everything I do is wrong.
I should walk away from her. Tell her I want no part in her life. The trouble is whenever I leave, I can’t stop thinking about her.
I’m ready to let her take control of my heart but what if she doesn’t want it?

With this one, Elizabeth Lynx wrote such a smoking hot novella. I adored the characters’ interactions, blunt and straight to the point. A bit disconcerting to me in the beginning and it was a bit abrupt because we went quickly to the point, and somehow just a little development would have been great but still once you get into their story you totally understand.
Jon used to be in control of his life, until a curvy brunette with her witty ways and charms put him under her spell without really trying. This successful agent was always up for a challenge and what started with a strong connection turned into something more.
Emmie never had time to find a balance between work and her love life, until she decided to make a move on Jon who was so clueless about her lack of experience firsthand.
It’s been a crazy ride, full of firsts for the both of them and I enjoyed it. So much!
