In The Virgin Intern Peggy Wylder delivers just what one might expect of a book about, well, a virgin intern: an office romance about a young, inexperienced woman and the education she gets from her older, more experienced colleague (who just happens to be ridiculously sexy.
The book opens with a provocative scene in which paralegal Naomi’s altercation with a copy machine leads to her first (very memorable!) interaction with senior partner Andrew. There’s spilled ink and borrowed handkerchiefs and all kinds of sexually suggestive conversation. Andrew instantly becomes the lead star of Naomi’s fantasies, but as a brand new (and seriously cash trapped) employee in her uncle’s law firm, Naomi can’t afford to make any mistakes. As her uncle’s most hated employee, Andrew is definitely off limits.
But, as luck (and very convenient plot structure) would have it, Naomi and Andrew are thrown together on a major case, and their working relationship becomes something altogether more in about three pages. Their “research” takes them from the bedroom to the pool to Andrew’s swanky office. By the end of the book, Naomi’s virginity is a thing of the past and her love for Andrew (and his for her) is the basis for an exciting future.
This novella hits many of the right spots for lovers of erotic contemporaries–the sex is hot, hot, hot and a little (or a lot!) on the dirty side. That said, I wouldn’t recommend it to those who read primarily for plot or character development. This one is a quick read with good prose that satisfies certain needs, but it isn’t meant for much beyond that.
