Review of Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist

SYNOPSIS

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 kind of 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.


MY REVIEW

This book was pure joy. I truly loved it, and it couldn't have come a better time because I had just finished two so-so book and really needed something like this. It was a super fun, light read. Oh, and hilarious. Did I mention how funny. In the first half, especially, I found myself smiling and laughing out loud. And it is not easy to get me to laugh, yet I was grinning like an idiot and chuckling at some of the ridiculous things Skye thought and did. The writing was fantastic too. Everything flowed perfectly and the author gave us the perfect amount of backstory, in just the right places. All I wanted to do was keep reading until I finished.

So, what'd this book about? It's about Skye, who was a literary major, fairly fresh out of college, living with her best friend in New York City and doing an internship at a newspaper in the review section. Finally, she gets a break and gets her own column. But...it's a sex column. And she's a virgin. Gulp. And that's where the story starts. She confesses her inocence to her best friend, but also inadvertently tells her BFF's brother, who she has been in love with since they were kids. After that, flirting, dating, jealousy,and much more ensues!

I about died when the book ended the way it did. The story wrapped up completely, but with a surprise ending that takes you into the second book. GAH! I can't wait. If you like chick-lit, romance without graphic sex, romantic comedies, or just downright cute, light, and fun books, you HAVE to buy this one. It's awesome! And I saw you can borrow if you're in KU or if you're a Prime member. How awesome is that?
