When Val Jensen gets dumped for her decision to stay a virgin until marriage, the nasty breakup goes viral on YouTube, making her the latest internet sensation.

After days of ridicule from her peers, Val starts a school-wide campaign to rally support for her cause. She meant to make a statement, but she never dreamed the entire nation would get caught up in the controversy.

As if becoming nationally recognized as “Virgin Val” isn’t enough, Val’s already hectic life starts to spin wildly out of control when bad boy Kyle Hamilton, lead singer for the hit rock band Tralse, decides to take her abstinence as a personal challenge.

How can a girl stay true to herself when this year’s Sexiest Man Alive is doing everything in his power to win her over?

The Top Ten Reasons Why Virgin Val Sucks:

10. She called me a one-hit-wonder. 
9. She doesn’t appreciate the endearing nickname I gave her. 
8. She makes me write stupid blogs about her at four in the morning. 
7. She’s encouraging people not to have sex. 
6. She blew me off when I asked her out. 
5. She has a crush on a douche bag. 
4. She won’t answer any of my calls. 
3. She’s such a tease with her look-but-don’t-touch policy.
2. I played a whole effing concert just for her and she didn’t come even though she told me she would. (You’re such a liar!) 
And the #1 reason why Virgin Val sucks? 
I still want her anyway.”


The first thing I noticed about this book was its very catchy cover. Oh my! This is probably one of my favorite book covers ever! And it’s not just the book cover that’s great, but also the story itself. As said above, this book revolves around a virgin girl named Val who vows to never have sex until she get married. After she was dumped by her boyfriend because of her pledge to herself, wrong rumors were spread which lead to the scene she made at their school cafeteria. And after that, everything changes including the coming of a bad boy slash hottie rockstar Kyle Hamilton into her life.

This book is just a short read and you can read it in just one sitting. It is also very easy to read and I’m so in love with the plot. Though, the idea of a bad boy who feels challenged to get Virgin Val is quite a cliché, but I just love how Kelly wrote this book without any hint of cliché in it.

And just like the Supernaturals series, the characters of this book were teenagers, but mind you, it wasn’t teeny boopy at all. I love all the characters though I despise Olivia at first. And my oh my! I also love the Mormon hottie Isaac. He rode on a motorcycle wearing a leather jacket, now, who wouldn’t fall for that? And ofcourse, I love Kyle. Super hottie bad boy.

It was also interesting to know that the characters grew as mature individuals in the last chapter. Which most of them got married. And my oh my! I am so proud of Valerie of all her accomplishments. Wow girl, you deserve it, you even deserve Kyle. (swoooon)

Even though I love the story, I’m not satisfied with its ending. I think Val and Kyle still need a lot of exposure lol. Well, I think I’ll see more of that in the second book. And also, Val meeting her birth mom, wow, I almost cried on that scene.

This book isn’t just about romance but also has an addition of light comedy in it (which makes this story so great). This is highly recommended!
