This was pretty much one of the worst books I've ever read. Don't waste your time, especially if, after reading the back of the book, you think Venus, the Goddess of Love, has anything to do with the story. It's a stupid, poorly-written, "comedy of errors" about a woman who works too much and hasn't had sex in a year. The characters are over-the-top, the situations are barely believable, and the ending doesn't match the style of the rest of the book. I'm angry at myself for bothering to finish it once I started it.

A tale of one woman's desparate attempts to sleep with a man--any man--in order to prevent her from accidentally re-instating her virginity (being celibate for one year). It's interesting to wonder "how's this going to go awry?" at each attempt, but the ending is ridiculously far-fetched.

This just wasn't my type of story, although it was pretty funny at times. The ending was ridiculous, but I'm glad it finally ended with the "right" guy. :)

Not a bad read. Very fun, light and fluffy. A few laugh out loud moments, but the ending is a bit out there. All in all, I would recommend it to a chick lit loving gal pal!

To begin with, the description of this book completely misled me as the Goddess of Love made no appearance in this story, whatsoever. I quickly got over that, however, and became so immersed in Stacy Temples life that I finished this book in 5 days! Im still surprised by that because Im a notoriously slow reader and there just havent been many books that I literally inhale so quickly.

Stacy Temple is your typical young working gal who has had her share of ups and downs in the relationship arena. After her last relationship ended nearly a year ago, Stacys focus turned to her career at an Internet start-up company selling sexy lingerie that she has neglected her sexual needs. No big deal, right? Apparently Stacy discovers it is a very big deal. She learns through a sex column emailed to her by a friend that after one year of celibacy, a girl gets re-virginated. No, it doesnt grow back, but according to the column, it may as well as you are officially a virgin again. This sends Stacy on a quest to get lucky before the one year mark. With failure after failure with several prospective partners (one of which is a paid escort gifted to Stacy by her boss!!!), Stacys desperation rockets upward.

This book was hilarious. I laughed out loud throughout the book while shaking my head combined with a little bit of eye-rolling at what was waiting on the next page. However, I couldnt help but cheer Stacy on. I had to give the girl points for seeing it through despite the odds of overall failure. Who knew it would be so hard to find someone to have sex with in New York City? Finding out how this would all shake out kept my anticipation level rising at the same pace as Stacys desperation.

This was a very fast read for me that made me laugh out loud several times. I highly recommend this to fans of both the chick-lit and contemporary romance genre who are looking for an entertaining and humorous book to escape intoeye-rolling optional.
