You only get one first time…

From driving tests to relationships, Valentina Bell thinks she’s a failure, with a big fat capital F. At this rate, she’s certain she’ll be a virgin forever. So Lena’s friends plan Operation: Popping the Cherry to help her find the perfect first time. Yet somehow disastrous dates with bad boy musicians and fabulous evenings with secretly in-the-closet guys aren’t quite working out how Lena planned.

Soon Lena’s avoiding Operation: Popping the Cherry to spend time with comforting, aloof Jake, her best friend’s older brother ,who doesn’t make her feel self-conscious about still clinging to her V card. But could Jake show Lena that sometimes what you’re looking for most is right by your side?

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Aurelia B. Rowl.) 17-year-old Valentina just got dumped because she wouldn’t have sex, so now her friends are determined that she needs to lose her virginity. Will ‘Operation: Popping the Cherry’ be a success? Or should Lena wait for things to happen naturally? This was an okay story, and I liked how it ended. Lena was an okay character, but she did need to stand up for herself a little more, and stop letting other people push her around. I didn’t blame her for being annoyed at her friends and their little intervention where her virginity was concerned, but I wish she’d told them that she was happy waiting, rather than being forced to go along with their plans. The storyline in this was okay, although it wasn’t 100% what I expected. I thought the storyline strayed a bit from the main ‘popping the cherry’ theme, and did stray onto more serious territory, which I wasn’t really expecting. The romance was one of the main storylines, and I have to say that I got really frustrated! I wanted Lena to stand up for what she wanted more – why go out with guys you don’t like when you know which guy you really want? And even if she wasn’t sure about Jake, why not flirt a bit and take advantage of the fact that he wanted to spend time with her? And when he is flirting back that is a good thing! Don’t push him away when you don’t really want him to go! The ending was okay, and there were some important lessons that Lena learned, I just wish she had had a bit more self-confidence. Overall; okay story about peer-pressure and virginity, 6.5 out of 10.
