Summary from Goodreads:
From bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis, writing as Kay Marie, comes a new adult romantic comedy about a girl who’ll soon discover that some secrets can’t be kept forever, especially those of the heart.
My name is Skylar Quinn, I just moved to New York with my best friend Bridget, and I have a confession. Well, more than one. Okay, quite a few really. Fine, here goes!
Confession #1: I’m a sex columnist. Hold on, that’s not really the confession. You see, I’m sort of a virgin…sex columnist.
Confession #2: I’m in love with Bridget’s older brother, Oliver. No—I was. No—I am. Wait, was? Am? Crap.
Confession #3: I’ve been avoiding Oliver for four years. Or I was until today, because he just moved in. Yes, you read that correctly. He’s my new roommate. So that night we’ve both been pretending never happened, well, we might not be able to keep it a secret any longer.
And trust me, this is only the beginning.
1) Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist! – Chapter One
“And that’s not even the best part—they want me, the virgin English major, to write a column. A dating column. Okay, a sex column…”
My throat is starting to close, and it’s highly possible that hives are breaking out along my neck. I can’t help but reach a few fingers up to rub at my skin as I try to swallow, fighting the chalky feeling on my tongue.
“And, I sort of said yes.”
Well, there it is. I said it. Now do you see?
I’m a farce. A fake. In my utter desperation to land a job with a full-time salary (and benefits!), I created the worst situation any hopeful journalist could ever be in. I’m going to be a reporter who can’t report the truth. A liar. A sham. They’ll run me out of the city before my first column is ever printed. I’ll never work in newsprint again. I’ll be forced to return home a failure, begging to oversee the editing of my high school gazette, surrounded by stories about football games and science projects for my entire life, praying for a student-teacher affair or drinking scandal to liven things up. I’ll—
Did I say any of that tirade out loud?
“Yeah?” I call back, pulled from my paranoia.
But then my heart stops.
Even my brain stops…for a second anyway.
The full sound of that voice carries to my ears and it’s not Bridget’s. It’s not even a woman’s. And I recognize it.
I’d recognize it anywhere.
“Ollie?” I squeak.
“Skye…” he answers. Is it possible for someone’s voice to be smiling?
But I don’t believe it—I don’t want to believe it. I ask again, hoping for a different answer. “Oliver McDonough?”
“Skylar Quinn?” he asks, and I actually hear a snicker this time.
I stand up and run to the kitchen, tripping over my own feet and throwing my arms against the wall to keep from falling over as I soar through the opening.
And there he is.
Six foot two. Sinfully dark brown hair. Brilliantly turquoise eyes.
Bridget’s older brother.
And the last person I ever wanted to see in the world.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have to say that for a new adult book, I was quite intrigued with this story, title and the content. First of all, do note that while there are no bedroom scenes, there is some implied sex here and there. However, there was nothing objectionable (except that I wish the book had ended differently but no spoilers from me). There was minimal profanity (but a few hardcore words). Compared to other new adult books I have read, the potentially offensive content was relatively mild.
As to the story, it was cute and funny at times. Possibly unrealistic at times, but I found it quite delightful. I could identify with the protagonist on occasion. I was glad to see that she was saving herself for her true love. I found the interactions between Skylar and Oliver quite entertaining at times. Though a light read, it was fun and did in a sense teach some moralistic lessons.
The writing style of the author was quite appropriate for the genre. All too often, authors talk down to their readers or sometimes too far above their heads. But Kay seems to understand her audience, and she writes to that exceptionally well.
I was sent a copy fo this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
