Thirty-two years old Stacy Temple defies the laws of physics that says Manhattan is a swinging singles paradise. She has worked so hard over the past year that she lives in abstinence. The Gigi XXX Internet column insists that no sex for a year equate to theoretical virginity.
A shocked Stacy realizes she is close to committing a capital offense especially for someone toiling at Thongs.com, a sexy lingerie on line shop. She decides to find a male to share some quick action, but has seven days to go before she wears the kick me sign in neon that emphasizes virgin territory. Who should do the honor: her former boyfriend, her buddy, a stranger, or an on-line date?
Often witty, THE ACCIDENTAL VIRGIN focuses on a woman's quest for casual sex due to the belief that the worst felony in life for a thirty-something is being a virgin. Stacy is too intelligent and driven to worry about a virginity doomsday clock written over the Internet, a source of with information, but also misinformation and disinformation. Once the reader leaps past the inconceivable crusade, fans of chick lit will find a humorous tale especially when the story line focuses on the lead character's harried lifestyle.
