VIRGIN IN THE CITY is a standalone romance novel by Alexa
Riley. Pepper is minding her business when she spies the
delectable UFC fighter, and now her neighbor, Teddy, through
her peephole. These two are instantly drawn to each other,
and their romance is both adorable and totally hot at the
same time. After years focused on his athletic career, Teddy
finds it refreshing to find someone who likes him for
himself and who he can let loose with. Pepper is attracted
to a man who is a tough fighter, but who is a gentle teddy
bear with her.
Pepper is a quirky, and somewhat sheltered, young woman
trying to make it in the big city. Teddy is fiercely
protective of Pepper, the more he gets to know her, and his
feelings grow. Although she is initially drawn to Teddy, his
profession gives her a slight pause. Pepper's father was a
professional fighter, as well as something of a hothead.
She's wants to be cautious before falling for Teddy, in case
he has too much of her father's temperament. Over the course
of the book, Teddy is able to show Pepper how much he cares
for her, and that she doesn't have to worry about him living
a life of chaos. This hero and heroine balance each other
out and expand their horizons. Interestingly, both main
characters are virgins in VIRGIN IN THE CITY. Pepper has
never found anybody she could let her guard completely down
with, and Teddy was always too concentrated on training.
Fortunately for these two virgins, Teddy's friend Rico lends
Teddy the benefit of his vast experience and gives his
VIRGIN IN THE CITY is a wild and wonderful tale of love at
first sight. There is a little conflict near the end of this
book, but it's brief and doesn't distract from the romance.
Teddy and Pepper's friends offer a little comic relief and a
great sounding board for the couple. As she often does,
Alexa Riley provides multiple epilogues to give readers a
look into the future to check on the characters. I look
forward to Alexa Riley's next book.
Pepper has just moved to the big city and is excited to
see how she can build her design business. Everything is
going great until she meets the man who moves in across
the hall. Suddenly her life is turned upside down by this
hometown hero who is anything but perfect.
Bear has moved back home in order to train for his last
fight. Heâ€™s spent his entire career focusing on being the
best, but the day he sees her across the hall, everything
changes. Suddenly the only thing that matters is having
her by his side and in his bed. And when that gets
threatened, all bets are off.
Warning: This rough and tough fighter can only be brought
to his knees by one womanâ€¦and boy, does she like him on
his knees. Cuddle up with this new romance that has more
than one virgin inside!
