Kissing the Coronavirus, a 16-page e-book by MJ Edwards, which launched on Amazon on April 22, tells the story of Dr. Alexa Ashingtonford, a scientist looking to discover a cure for the Coronavirus… who ends up falling in love with it.
Yes, you read that right.
When a trial vaccine is injected into a fellow scientist, he dies and becomes the virus in human form, leaving the good doctor overcome with desire.
The book cover features a woman kissing a green-colored man/virus. Says the book’s description: “She was supposed to cure the Coronavirus. Instead… she fell in love with it.”
“I don’t know whether to give this 5 stars or 1 star,’ one Goodreads user wrote. “Don’t get me wrong, this book is awful. Absolutely horrible. But in the best possible way. It is exactly what I wanted it to be.”
“This was hands down the funniest thing I’ve read. Disgusting, disturbing, medically inaccurate, but such a funny read,” someone else posted.
