About the author:
Bri Stone writes page turning, skin tingling new adult romance. If she isn’t writing, she is probably reading, binge watching anything on Netflix, or imaging crazy scenarios in her head that will probably never happen. When she is not spending time with her imaginary book friends, she is buried in her Pre-Med classes at the University of Iowa.
What inspired you to write your book?
When I discovered what a Virgins manifesto was, I wanted to create a character to build a story about it. Once I started my outline, the friends to lovers trope came about and I realized I wanted the story to be stronger, better. So I created Dillon and I never looked back.
Here is a short sample from the book:
I turned over and watched her sleep. Sure, maybe it was lame. But damn, she is too beautiful for my own good. I wasn’t sure how long I could keep it to myself. How long I could wait to tell her I was in love with her. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to, damn did I want to…I just…I couldn’t lose my best friend.
I met her eyes, big, blue and innocent as she stared at me. I felt my heart in my ears, my stomach in my ass. I didn’t think this through, but I couldn’t back down without a fight. It wouldn’t be a good idea; I mean I’m in love with the girl for crying out loud. It would kill me, but…taking Lori as mine is something I’ve dreamed of since I was fifteen. Fifteen. I took a deep breath, a steadying breath and then let it out.
“What about me? I’ll take your virginity.”
Please let me be inside you. Please let me taste you. Please let me rock your world. Please love me back. Something like that.
If she said yes, for that one night, I could be anything but her best friend.
