This is a 8,000 word EROTIC stand-alone story with an HEA, so no cliff-hangers!
Abby is a college freshman, and she is a virgin. Unlike her peers, she isn't ashamed of it, and neither does she wear it as a badge of honor. She isn't religious, but she knows who she is as a person. She is neither judgmental or sanctimonious. She's just Abby. She wants to be able to look at her children and tell them a good story about how she met their father. That's important to her. She understands that her first may not be her last, but she doesn't ever want to sleep with a boy just to do it. She falls in love with a star football player, but will he be able to balance being a star athlete, and just being himself? Abby will try to help him find his way, but it may be more difficult than she imagines...
EXCERPT FROM BOOK
Abby wasn't religious or anything like that. She just had some strong ideas about who she was and who she wasn't. She didn't sign a virginity pledge and she wasn't a member of school prayer groups, though they often recruited her out of some misguided notion that she simply hadn't found one yet. She politely explained to anyone who asked that she didn't subscribe to any theology.
"But you've never had sex?" Lia said.
Lia and Abby had just met. They were randomly assigned roommates at James Burton Private College in coastal Maine. Lia sat on a futon that still had new-store smell on it, and Abby sat with her legs dangling off of her top bunk bed.
"No. It's not because I don't want to or anything. I just want to know that the person is special to me. It's a big life step. I'm not like delusional or anything. I understand that the first person I have sex with probably isn't going to love me forever and become my husband, but I don't want to look back on the event with shame or regret or anything like that."
"And you're really not religious?"
"Not at all," Abby said. "I consider myself a committed agnostic. Why does the not wanting to have sex with every random stranger thing have to be associated with Jesus? What kind of deal did he work out where he gets to have a monopoly on that market? I just have ideas about who I am, and I'm gonna stick to them."
"You sound like a public service announcement."
"Abby Richardson, eighteen years old. Not even once."
