Review: Virginal Headlines by Candace Knoebel (Love Bettween the Headlines #1)

Candace Knoebel starts off her brand-new series with a dramedy, and I certainly am a fan of books that have a good balance of the lighthearted with the heartache. Knoebel does well doing exactly that with the Love Between the Headlines series starter, Virginal Headlines. As the title itself clues us in, readers are introduced to twenty-three-year-old Primrose Aberly, an aspiring writer for an online blog and a virgin. When she lands the job of her dreams with top women's romance blog Virago, her first assignment is a doozy: to convert a "player" into a "stayer", basically having him go from a ladies' man to a committed one-woman-forever guy. Her target? Twenty-four-year-old Grayson Pierce, known as a heartbreaker slash panty-melter. He also happens to work for Stud, a rival blog. Prim already has an advantage since she has Grayson's private number courtesy of the gorgeous guy himself. This assignment is the opportunity of a lifetime, but the closer Prim gets to Grayson, the more she falls for him. Will she lose him once he learns all about the article that she's writing or could love possibly prevail in spite of all the secrets between them?

This was a good beginning to the series, giving enough of a look at all the recurring characters and having them play pivotal roles without trying to steal the spotlight from the main characters, Prim and Grayson, or their love story. Grayson was a revelation, turning out to be more than the stereotypical playboy without a care in the world. Prim was also a pretty likable character, although let's face it, the whole getting close to Grayson because of a possible job opportunity had me wary of her after the first few chapters. Things turned out as expected, so there weren't any surprises or twists to the story, but it was still an enjoyable read, one that has me looking forward to the rest of this all-new series. Virginal Headlines snags four stars. ♥
