The Virginity Mission by Cate Ellink

It’s lust at first sight when Mac sees Jason shirtless and sweating on the back of a truck.Jason is the army sergeant assigned to support the six‐week scientific expedition that Mac is participating in, and might just be the perfect candidate for another journey of discovery that Mac is desperate to undertake — sex.

Fraternization between students and staff might be strictly prohibited, but everybody knows fruit always tastes better when it’s forbidden.

3/5 stars

I'm giving this book 3.5 stars because it wasn't what I was expecting. I seriously thought it was a m/m romance! I mean, look at the cover....sexy manly chest. Okay, now read the description. No where in that description was the pronoun she or even he for that matter. The main characters name's are Jason and Mac. I read about 20% before I realized that Mac was a woman! I kept reading it though because it captured my interest and I don't read very many books set in Australia. Jason was definitely the strong silent chunky type of man that I love reading about and always want more of. Mac, whose real name is Willow Macintosh, was the very inexperienced virgin (never been kissed either). She was shy and sweet and seemed almost backwards at times. The building of their relationship wasn't rushed although out of six weeks they only spent a part of that together. Overall, it was an enjoyable book....even if it was completely different then I was expecting. So, I guess the low rating is my fault and has nothing to do with the story itself. I think the description needs to be rewritten.
