A is for Abstinence by Kelly Oram $100 Book Blast

perf5.250x8.000.inddA is for Abstinence by Kelly Oram Six-time Grammy Award wining musician Kyle Hamilton has it all—money, fame, talent, good looks, and a job he loves. His only regret in life: walking away from a certain notorious virgin because he was too prideful, stubborn, and even afraid to give her the only thing she asked of him—his abstinence. Four years and a broken heart later, Kyle realizes that sex isn’t everything, and he suddenly can’t stop thinking about the girl that got away. Virgin Val Jensen got under is skin like no one else ever has. He wasn’t ready for her then, but things are different now. He’s grown up, he’s learned a few things, and he’s finally figured out exactly what he wants, or, rather, who he wants. Kyle Hamilton wants a do-over, and this time he’s willing to do—or not do—whatever it takes.

Excerpt: I’d never seen Val so upset before. I’d flustered her on a regular basis back in

the day. I’d always pushed her to her limits on purpose, trying to get her strong façade

to crack and she never once had. She was the strongest person I’d ever met. It said

something about her emotional state of mind that she’d asked for a few moments to

collect herself before having to do the signing with me.

I knew she probably wanted these few minutes alone, but I couldn’t pull myself

away. I couldn’t leave her like this. I cleared my throat to gain her attention, and she

jumped at the intrusion. She whirled around, hastily wiping away a tear or two as she

forced her emotions down and reverted back into the calm, controlled woman I’d seen


She opened her mouth as if to explain herself but shut it again, realizing that there

was no hiding what I’d just witnessed. Instead she decided to ignore it. “Kyle Hamilton.”

It was a warm greeting and a sigh at the same time.

Her smile was sincere, and her eyes held genuine pleasure, but there was a

wariness about her that made me afraid to approach her. We stared at each other in

silence, both cataloging the changes four years had brought. I wasn’t sure what to do or

how to break the silence between us, so Val took the initiative. “I didn’t think I’d ever see

you again,” she said with a small shake of her head.

“Me, either.” I finally broke from my stupor and managed a small smile. “Hug for

an old friend?”

I held out my arms, still not taking any steps further into the room, letting her

come to me on her terms. It took her a moment to decide, but eventually she pushed her

smile up into her eyes and crossed the room to me.
