Where I Got It: Won in Giveaway

Synopsis: Karma Points is cursed. Cursed with a stupid name and the inability to lose her virginity. She's on a mission to lose her virginity before she turns twenty if it's the last thing she does.

One night, her good friend Eva brings her to an underground club where Karma meets a tattooed bouncer. He’s far from the clean-cut type she normally falls for, which makes her think this finally might be the night she crosses the threshold of womanhood.

Excited, she goes home with the bouncer named Jax and as always, her dreams crash down once again. Jax cannot believe she is willing to give away her virginity to a stranger she met at a club. As the only son with five sisters and a widowed mom, he can't morally go through with it, even though he's never been more tempted in his life.

Unwilling to let her walk away he strikes a deal. Karma has to spend three weeks dating him and then decide if she wants to have sex or walk away.

I read this book on September 16th 2014.

Karma Points really did have bad luck. And as you read this book, you enjoy every second of it...

I won this book in a giveaway on this website: High on Books Blog

A.J. Bennett seemed to not be afraid to embarrass her characters. This novel reminded me a bit of Losing It by Cora Carmack, but it was not a copy. Just how she wanted to lose her virginity and would (try) losing it at a one night stand... and things go down hill from there.

Although Jax is mentioned as a bad-boy, he was kind. He seemed like asmart young man and I appreciated his respect for women and his protectiveness - he didn't want Karma to lose her virginity to someone she hardly knew! That is something any women would wish for. It was interesting to see things from his point of view as well. I did enjoy being in Karma's head, but reading about guys is always more fun!

I was happy with how the story progressed from beginning to about 3/4 in. Then I kind of got upset with how Karma resolved all her problems easily. Honestly, it was just to easy for her to fix her problems with her mother and fathers. I've read many books that didn't have conflict resolution, so I'm not just singling out this book.

Overall, I enjoyed the light hearted-ness of this book and Karma's journey from virgin to... non-virgin?

I recommend this book to readers who enjoy New Adult light fluffs.
