This week's lucky chosen romance:
George & the Virgin by Lisa Cach copyright 2002
I'm going to give this one away. Details are at the bottom!
This book stars Alizon, one of the virgins picked by the townspeople to be fed to the dragon in the yearly virgin/dragon sacrifice. She is obviously not eaten by the dragon. Enter George, a professional wrestler. George gets hypnotized by his psychic, trippy sister using a magic ancient crystal.
George finds himself in a barn, where he is implored by some lady with a virginal daughter up for the lottery to slay the beast! George thinks he's deep in hypnosis, and agrees to slay the dragon.
(You might want to go to the photo and read it, it's juicy-ish.)
Anyway, it turns out the Alizon stopped the feedings of the dragon when she fed the old lady who used to be in charge to the dragon. She now feeds the dragon sheep that the villagers send and is the keeper of many virgins, which she hides from George. If the townspeople knew the virgins were still alive, they'd kill them.
Alizon is pretty sick of being a virgin if you catch my drift. Romance ensues!! It was not super believable to me, but I guess you may find yourself in love with someone for no real good reason if he's the only guy you know.
There are lots of hilarious things said about virgins.
"Damn those virgins!"
"It had taken her twelve years to reach the stage of a fifteen year old boy, but she was there now, and by St. Stephen she did not know what the hungers of her body would make her do!"
"Providing for the care and luxurious comfort of 12 virgins was not inexpensive."
"Behold! The fang of the beast!"
They were ok, but with the point of the book being all virginy, it took a long time for them to actually get it on.
Report Card for George & the Virgin
Overall Story: B
Romance Story: C
Cheesy Parts: A
Dirty Parts: B
The one had a lot of funny virgin references. It made me giggle, which is worth much! Like I said before, I'm not really sure what the basis of the romance was aside from the fact that George possessed the proper equipment to help with that pesky virginity problem.
However, I'd like to pass this one on to one of you lucky readers! Leave a comment if you'd like to get your hands on this cheeser. If more than one of you are interested, I'll pick a winner before next week's too hot read.
