Blue-eyed small-town Ellie Campbell is a writer mainly of travel articles.  One night, on a dare, and while drunk, she bets that she can write a book on sex.  Her friends laugh at her, because mild-mannered, conservative, sex challenged Ellie is the LAST person they could think of to successfully write a book about women seeking, and obtaining, sexual pleasure.  Still drunk, she drops a proposal to her editor, who accepts.  Not knowing how to back out of the deal, she begins her research, spending time in New York City to do so.

There, she meets Marius ‘Ash’ Asher, a sexy, tall black man from Brooklyn.  After meeting him in a deli, she shares with him her research, and he thinks this is the perfect situation from him:  no-commitment sex.  After a bad breakup with a high maintenance woman, Ash, while not on a complete hiatus from women, certainly does not want to commit to another relationship that will most certainly end up the same way.  What could be the harm in having some seriously fabulous sex for the month that Ellie’s in New York? 

I loved, loved, loved this book!    The Average Girl’s Guide to Getting Laid is a great book mixed with life, romance, and laughter. I LAUGHED my booty off!  Annie Dean has a fabulous sense of humor.

Ellie Campbell, the heroine of the story is sweet, yet feisty, combined with a dash of a wavering self-esteem due to past relationship failures.  She entranced me, as I could see a little bit of myself in her.  Ash is intensely sexy.  Funny, demanding and fiercely devoted to his family, I wished he’d jump off the pages and into my life.

The sex between these two is so hot, they practically melt the pages.  Bring the oven mitts to this reading, or your hands will be scorched!  I read this book in one sitting and was saddened when it ended. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Dean will write next, but in the meantime, I Joyfully Recommend The Average Girl’s Guide to Getting Laid.  I believe you will enjoy it as much as I did.
