My Soon-To-Be Sex Life is no where near as racy as the title would imply — and that isn’t a bad thing.
Charlie decided that it’s time she lost the “Big V” card and has begun a campaign to find the right guy to experience her first time with. But despite a plethora of potential suitors, Charlie can’t quite go all the way with any of them.
Her plan is complicated when her mother admits she’s got a drug problem and checks into rehab. Charlie is sent to live with her eccentric grandfather, Monty. Now she has to find a way to help mom get through rehab and survive her crazy grandfather, all while feeling an attraction to a new guy named Eric who makes her heart skip a beat.
In many ways, My Soon-To-Be Sex Life reminded me of the first American Pie movie. The hook is the “racy” set-up of a person wanting to lose his or her virginity but the story itself ends up being a character driven one that explores a lot more than just a quick coupling or two. Judith Tewes is to be commended for telling an emotional rich, honest story that packs a few laugh out loud moments along the way. Charlie is an interesting narrator and while the story seems to take a detour or two, it’s still an interesting enough one that it will keep you rooting for her and turning the next page to see what happens next.
In the interest of full disclosure, I received a digital ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
