Sera Delos has a secret. She wishes it were something important or life-altering like owning a key to a blue Police Box that’s home to a time-travelling alien, or that she must hide the secret identity of her alter-ego. No, Sera’s secret is un-extraordinary. At twenty-five, she’s never been kissed. There just haven’t been many opportunities for the self-proclaimed nerd. There have always been too many shows to watch, too many books to read, and the rest of the time is spent fangirling over Tom Hiddleston. When the hottie next door and his son need a ride to the hospital, and Sera becomes the only available driver, her life is changed forever. Hunter MacLaine makes Dean Winchester seem like a mediocre-badass, even if he is a diabetic and doesn’t think much of himself. An old flame, nerdy references and the ups and downs of slowly falling in love with her next door neighbour, Sera’s wondering the obvious. Maybe, just maybe, if all the nerd-gods are smiling down on her, Sera Delos might have just found the man who her first kiss belongs to.

I LOVE this book! I was hooked from page one and could not put it down. The main character, Sera, is awesome. She is a nerd who speaks in movie quotes and as the title says, she’s never been kissed. She struggles a lot throughout the book with her self-image and has very little confidence in herself. She’s funny, sweet, thoughtful and kind. She’s also snarky, tough and stubborn. I absolutely loved her and you can’t help but root for her throughout this story. I loved Sera’s use of movie quotes and language during conversation. There were many times while reading that I laughed-out-loud. I loved the way her relationship developed with Hunter. When I finished the last page of this book, I wanted to cry that it was over I loved it so much. This book was really fantastic and I’m looking forward to reading more from this author! Highly recommend!
I really enjoyed this one. I really really really liked Sera. But damn did that girl get on my last freaking nerve sometimes. The only thing that really annoyed me was the bad editing. That really needs to be fixed. But I found the story to be a bit different from a lot of other books I’ve read. So that was a plus. I really liked Hunter, even though he was an ass sometimes. Matty was just too adorable. Loved him. This one is set at 99 cents right now and I would definitely encourage others buy it. It’s worth the read, IMO. But who doesn’t love a super nerdy book and movie loving freak? But then again, I am one so I might be a little biased. 😉
Was actually contemplating if I’ll give it a 4.5 though…but..yeah.
When I read the synopsis of the book, I was like “Hmmmm. Interesting.When I read the beginning, I was like Am I the one who wrote this one and why do I feel like I did and I’m not aware? it was right on the feels. Like…wtf, book, why??!! And then there’s the geeky stuff and I’m like…OMG, my life is finally written in the book and the heroine is totally me (well, not all the stuff mentioned here in the book are the fandom I belong to. Haha.) and then there’s the swoon worthy hero. And the sizzling, crackling, whatever-ing is there and I was excited.
And then it kinda diminished in the mid-end of the story. Guess this what happens if you read lots of stories in this genre. It became predictable…but, it was actually bearable still. Now that it’s hours since I’ve finished it, I realized that it wasn’t really that swoon worthy. The romance isn’t really that exciting. But, I will give this a 4 cause the heroine was sort of my soul sister. Hahahahaha. Still looking forward fot the author’s next books though.
For a debut novel. I think the author did a pretty good job. As you can guess by the title of the book, Never Been Kissed, is about a woman, Sera, who has never been kissed or touched by a man before. In other words, pure as the driven snow. (I know what you’re thinking, how is that even possible?) enter Hunter, her sexy neighbor with the attitude of an ass. I think they were a little mismatched but opposites attract, yes?
The writing is smooth and easy to follow and out of all the characters, Matty, Hunter’s son was my favorite. Sera was okay I guess and Hunter…hmmm. I’m not sure if I like him just yet. I didn’t enjoy how he went bipolar ALL THE TIME. The dude ran hot and cold, from smiling to scowling within seconds. Later on, we learn the reason for his behavior and while I get it, it’s not something completely understandable.
Still, I’d recommend this book. I was looking for something different and I found it.
