Book Blurb:

Milky thought she was ready for anything, but is she ready for love?
Ready to take on the world, Milky Valdez moves to Madrid to carve out a life and a career for herself, away from the stifling help of her well-meaning, affluent parents. Still young and inexperienced with men, she is shocked when she meets Luke, her handsome, womanizing neighbor, who leads a hedonistic lifestyle as a music producer.
Despite their differences, the two strike up an unlikely friendship.
Milky’s new world changes when she overhears a conversation that leads her to make a rash decision.
Giving up her virginity to a friend seems like the easy option, but when she finds out what Luke has given up for her in return, she realizes just how big a risk she’s taking.


Milky has never had a boyfriend before when she moves to Madrid. Her enticing looks make all the handsome and fit dudes, who set eyes on her for the first time, fall for her. Yet, she chooses her neighbour Luke (who has fallen for her too) to lose her virginity to. Why is she so desperate to lose her virginity?
No Idea!

This book:

  1. Has no storyline.
  2. Little character development. Most of what is mentioned about the characters is how good looking they are. Little else.
  3. Zero research. If seemed like the author, one fine day, felt like writing something, so she sat down and penned this book.
  4. Has no logic in the events happening in the story.

The only pro I can think about is that the book is short. If you really want to kill some time, maybe you can pick this one up, otherwise it isn’t something I’d recommend.

      1. Hahaha it was. I understand. The terms of my tours are the bloggers have a free reign… 😂 😂
        Thank you for your post.
        Have my other mails gone in spam? Would you be interested in book blitzes every month, which is just a promo tour for a book?


      2. Umm… I saw it and blood is pouring out eyes right now… 😭 haha 😂

        No worries, I can handle a negative review and besides even if I feel explaining I don’t think it’s ethical for me as the author, because when it comes down to it, I wrote something you didn’t like.

        Still, thank you for participating and honestly reviewing my book 🙂

      3. Hi, I am still sorry and ashamed for the harsh words used by me. If you ever need a book tour or blitz or anything, please do let me know, I would be glad to participate. And the review will be honest, but never again harsh like this.
        I am truly sorry.
