Vice, Virtue & Video (Vice & Virtue, #1) - Bianca Giovanni “When I kissed you, that was the single most intimate thing I’ve ever done in my life.."James and Lola.......they are so sweet! But really not that innocent, well James anyway because he's still living life as a porn star! Now our sweet Lola is still the innocent virgin best friend but for how long? They've been best friends since they were children and occasionally messed around...very innocently;) It started out with a kiss here a fondle there and maybe a little more once they got older but never sex. Things can change though...right!? “If someone had told me when I was younger that James would be the person I’d fall in love with, I would have laughed and told them they were insane."Friends to lovers.....I'm a sucker for these types of books. There are 3 short books leading to this full length book and in them we get to watch these two grow up...which I loved. They are now both living permanently in California and beginning to realize how special they are to one another.However........there always has to be a however......James has got a monkey on his back and when it comes through poor little Lola suffers for it. It was a great plot and both James and Lola had a hand in it, Lola trying to correct it properly and James, well not so much;)But when he thought he was going to lose Lola, well it was so sweet!!!!!!“I’ve never been in love before and I have no idea what you’re supposed to do and how you’re supposed to handle things. This emotion has been a really weird one for me because I’m used to getting physical, but I’m not used to anything real—anything that feels all intimate and deep like this”Of course Lola loves him! How couldn't she.......a 6' something Adonis she would have to be a nun!!!!!Anyway........the book was great! I can't wait for the next installment.....oh yes there's more;). James Laird is leaving the porn industry for the love of his life! Too sweet!I can't wait for the next book! I'm not sure this book would work for some but I loved it:) Give it try James and Lola may grow on you also:):)
