Raise your hand if you’ve ever done this. Written a racy message and sent it to—oops—the wrong person
Yeah, me too. Except, I sent my latest Tales of a Naughty Virgin column detailing my fantasies about my hot, charming, thoroughly bangable next-door-neighbor to…MY ENTIRE COMPANY.

Did I mention I’m a children’s book editor?

Well, I was.


At least the column goes viral, but I’m still the gal who gets fired for her not-safe-for-work thoughts about the so-called “Mister Sexy Pants.”

Now I need a job stat, so I jump on the first opportunity. And I come face to face with my new boss.
Mr. Sexy Pants himself.

Item number one on my to-do list? Make sure my boss never finds out his alter ego…since all of New York knows I want Mister Sexy Pants to punch my virgin club card.

Contents Include: A sexy and clever romp of an MF, dual-POV, mistaken identity romantic comedy, complete with dating mishaps, sizzling sexual tension, a hot nerd of a boss hero, a chaotically delightful heroine, an awkward incident with glitter, and a virgin’s NSFW to-do list.

My Review:

In the first book in The Dating Games Series, Blakely delivers a light hearted and steamy romance in The Virgin Next Door. This entertaining read will leave you wanting for more!

At the beginning of the story we get to meet Veronica Valentine, editor at McGee Whitney Books for Young Readers. She loves working for the publishing world and has her eyes on a promotion that would ultimately make her one of the best editors at McGee. But that dream is quickly crushed the minute she sends out the wrong email to the whole staff. Now they know that Veronica is behind, The Virgin Column and she is horrified. In her latest post, she details how she met Mister Sexy Pants, but doesn’t see him again. Unfortunately for her that also means the end of her job as an editor and Veronica doesn’t know what to do. She has to find a temporary job while she finds another job in publishing. Then the unexpected happens and she finds a job as a florist manager for Bikes and Blooms, in which the owner happens to be Mister Sexy Pants himself. It’s clear that there is a connection between them from the very start, and no matter how much Veronica wants to keep things professional between them, fate keeps bringing them together.

As the owner of Bikes and Blooms, Milo want’t expecting to see Miss Polka Dot again after meeting for the first time at a restaurant. It’s now a month later and they happen to bump into each other again as she takes her dog for a walk. She unexpectedly flashes all of New York city and he is taken by her right away. But ever since his last relationship did not go as well as he hoped, Milo has decided to not date anyone for a while. His sole purpose is to make his business a success and that also means hiring a new florist manager. Thought his thoughts keep going back to the mysterious woman that he can’t stop thinking about. Until she comes back into his life again to apply for the new position, she is smart and funny. While the job is only temporary, Milo finds himself thinking of the possibly at a future together if only he can get her to see that they might just be meant for each other.

I loved reading The Virgin Next Door, there were lots of sweet and highly entertaining moments as well. What made the book stand out to me were the main characters’ pets. They are important to the story and they just make the story that much cuter. Veronica is not afraid to go for what she wants and I loved the fact that she kept pushing through when it came to her job. Milo truly compliments her so well and they need each other in order to give their relationship a fair shot. The ending was adorable and it perfect lead to the next book in the series. I would highly recommend checking out this book and I cannot wait to read the next book as well. :)

My Rating: 4.5/5
