In post-apocalyptic North America, sexual slavery is legal. Lila Velez desperately wants to lose her virginity before the troops visit her town and take it away by force. She makes plans to seduce her only friend. Lila does not love him, but he is the only man who has shown her true affection, an affection she is willing to take as a substitute for love.

Lila’s coping mechanism to cope with her mother’s loss is her secret. A secret that will bring her closer to Aleksey Fürst, a foreign, broody man who she distrusts because of his links to the troops and his rough, yet irresistible appearance. He offers Lila an alternative to her plans, a possibility that terrifies her…and tempts her in spite of herself.

With threats looming at every turn and no way to escape, Lila fears that falling in love will only lead to more heartache. The consequences of laying down her arms for Aleksey and welcoming hope might destroy more than her heart. They might force her to face the worst of her nightmares becoming a reality. Is love possible in a world that has forgotten what the human touch is?

Review
The V Girl is a book unlike most others. It will make you feel so many emotions that you have no idea what you are feeling at times. It is beautifully written and tragic at the same time.
Lila lives in a world where rape is legal and celebrated. To me, I thought I want to read this book because I don’t understand how that is possible. I went into this hesitantly, thinking I will probably not be able to finish it but I was wrong. I loved this book!
Lila is a virgin and is approaching the time for her recruitment. She knows that if she is found to be a virgin during recruitment then it will be hell for her. She sets out to get her best friend to sleep with her so that she at least has control over the first time she has sex. Soldiers can take what they want, when they want, how they want so she knows if she doesn’t make this happen then it will be bad.
A world where being a virgin is basically a death sentence is so weird to me. I love how the author is able to make you feel like you have been transported to this post apocalyptic America. I’m afraid to say much more than that because I don’t want to spoil anything. This book is definitely one that you don’t want to miss.
