Welcome to my stop of the @TBRBeyondTours The Night When No One Had Sex Blog Tour. I’m here to spotlight The Night When No One Had Sex on my blog and share a few of my thoughts with my fellow bookworms.
“Hilarious texts and awkward moments, The Night When No One Had Sex is a series of unfortunate events that may keep all of these teens from having sex.”Sheaf & Ink
The Night When No One Had Sex Blog Tour Sheaf & Ink Book Review
A group of high school friends all make a pact to have sex with their significant others right after prom in this comedy of a novel. For me, the best parts of this book happened when the entire cast of characters were texting in their group texts, interspersed throughout the novel. They felt honest, humorous, and perfectly encapsulated the drama of all the events that unfold.
It is refreshing to read a book that sets the stage for sex and the complications or difficulties that might come up when the couples try to have sex. Throughout, there were these laugh out loud moments.
There are these hilarious back and forth be it the text messages or a certain couple finding ways to get aroused. But more importantly there is this genuine concern for each other, particularly for Alex, who has to leave after prom because of a family emergency. And as things progress over the evening it’s interesting to see how the night unfolds.
With multiple character points of views, Miller’s debut is a combination of the unpredictable and interestingly hilarious take on teens and their night after prom.
Happy Reading ̴ Cece

The Night When No One Had Sex Blog Tour
It’s the night of senior prom, and eighteen-year-old Julia has made a pact with her friends. (Yes, that kind of pact.) They have secured a secluded cabin in the woods, one night without parental supervision, and plenty of condoms.
But as soon as they leave the dance, the pact begins to unravel. Alex’s grandmother is undergoing emergency surgery, and he and his date rush to the hospital. Zoe’s trying to figure out how she feels about getting off the waitlist at Yale–and how to tell her girlfriend. Madison’s chronic illness flares, holding her back once again from being a normal teenager. And Julia’s fantasy-themed role play gets her locked in a closet.
Alternating between each character’s perspective and their ridiculous group chat, The Night When No One Had Sex finds a group of friends navigating the tenuous transition into adulthood and embracing the uncertainty of life after high school

This one sounds fun! I’m excited to check it out, especially for the group chats.
I hope you enjoy. I love it when authors include text messages or group chats. It gives it that extra layer of authenticity. Something I think teens and readers can relate too.
