“Even Bridget Jones’s Diary could take a page from this novel.”—Joan Rivers (on VIRGIN).
Ellie used to be a virgin, but now she’s a woman with sexual experience. Well, some sexual experience. She also has debt, an unpaid magazine internship, and three flatmates who left her with the single room to match her single status.
That’s okay. She doesn’t want a boyfriend anyway—she wants several. And if the sex is exciting enough, her ruthless magazine editor boss can exploit her dating life for a column.
After countless hook-ups, a disastrously fiery encounter with some heat lube, and one orgasm class, Ellie is faced with the sad reality of her sexual ineptitude. But when she starts to witness the emotional wreckage she’s leaving in her wake, Ellie realizes that sex can be hard, and there’s a down side to giving it up too easy.
Wow. What a fantastic follow-up to VIRGIN. The hilarity and entertainment continue in NOT THAT EASY by Radhika Sanghani. There was so much to love about this book and I got to tell you, I haven’t laughed that much in quite a while. Every turn of the page brought more laughter than before. Ellie’s journey is one that will stick with me for months on end.
Ellie lost her V card in VIRGIN. She thought once she got past that obstacle her sex life would explode. It turns out, it’s not that easy. Everyone around her is having tons of sex, and she is stuck with a single bed with roommates that are in some form of a relationship. So, she is completely surrounded by it, and yet she has already hit a slump in her sex life. Well, NO MORE dammit! She decides she needs to get out there and ‘slut’ it up! Online dating seemed like a good idea at the time. Add on some peer pressure and the need to have better sex stories to tell her mates…GAME ON!
Follow Ellie on her continued journey of sexual self discovery. There are some ups and TONS of downs, but does she give up? NO WAY! She has guts, I will tell you that. I wish I was that confident when I was her age. Everything embarrassing that you think could happen during a sexual encounter, Ellie went through it. I only wish that my start to adulthood was this eventful. It’s messy, humiliating, and hilarious as hell. NOT THAT EASY acts as a guide-book of what NOT TO DO for young women. Other women will be able to walk down memory lane when they read about some of the situations that Ellie finds herself in. Like I said after I read VIRGIN, this isn’t a book I would usually choose due to the lack of romance in it, but I’ll say it again, I’m so glad I picked it up. It was incredibly entertaining, humorous, with tons of smart and witty banter. This was a definite winner for me.
