Punching the V-Card by Leta Blake

If you are looking for a steamy, low angst read that goes from Virgin to 100 in 150 pages or less, have I got the book for you...

From the Punching the V-Card blurb:

Best friend’s hot older brother? Check. A weekend alone? Check.

Finally punching that V-card? Oh yes.

Carl has a pesky “innocence” problem that requires a solution. His best friend's brother Devon is the perfect answer.

Devon’s experienced, gorgeous, and Carl’s been secretly crushing on him for ages. Carl doesn’t want to “lose it” to just anybody. Everyone says the first time should be special—and what’s more special than sharing it with the guy of his dreams?

It’s not like Devon won’t enjoy it. Solving this so-called problem is an objectively fun experience for most people! The plan is totally win/win!

Shockingly, Devon agrees. But even though it goes better than either of them ever expected, Carl’s moving across the country soon. It’s not possible to have more. No matter how much they both want it.


Punching the V-Card by Leta Blake is a is a high heat, low angst, new adult gay romance featuring a best friend’s hot older brother, scorching first times, and falling in love with the guy of your dreams.

Heather's Review:

High-heat- check
Insta-love- check
Best Friend's Brother - check
Low Angst - check
Strong Plot... well, you can't have everything...

Punching the V-Card was a quick and steamy read that I would say borders more on erotica than romance - the time was spent on the sex scenes and the love story just felt like the storyline to tie the steam together... and if that's what you're looking for, you'll find it.  

This was a great book to read as a break from heavy, angsty romance or when you need a quick, fun read after a bad day and don't want to think... Fair warning, the blurb sets you up to think that you'll be reading from Car's POV, but really, the story centres on Devon, with Carl's POV only appearing briefly.

Rating: 4 Stars
