Will Becs let love into her cold heart?

Will Kindles ignite from the sexual heat? There's only one way to find out...

I’ve been reading a lot of Alexa Riley lately. She’s got most of her books in Kindle Unlimited so they are almost like free. And I’m on a smut run and I’ve enjoyed a lot of her smut.

When I saw The Virgin Duet, I have to admit I was skeptical. I didn’t feel like it would be my “thing.” And I was right.

The Virgin Duet is the story of two virgins who fall into obsessive love with each other. Becs is an 18 year old orphan who is one paycheck from living in a homeless shelter again. Bray is a 30+ y/o billionaire who is obsessive compulsive with a side order of a shitton of issues.

Just to be honest, The Virgin Duet was NOT my thing. The sex wasn’t hot – most of it was a little weird. The relationship didn’t flesh out the way I expected: the two never talked to each other about anything which paves the way for a nonsensical BigMis. The “bad guys” sucked and the explanation for Bray’s issues was…wow. Plus there’s a kidnapping with some extra weird sex-like thing going on.

All in all, it was ok and had a crazysauce vibe that reminded me of a serial. Not really my thing but I can see others being interested.
