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.
Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist! is written by ya author Kaitlin Davis, writing new adult as Kay Marie. This book is a hilariously good time. I honestly don’t know any other way to describe it. I struggled with this review because every other sentence I wrote kept repeating how funny and witty and quirky this book was. So I decided to scrap that whole long meandering and honestly just repetitive review and write a mini review instead, telling you that this book is funny and a great time and you should read it. Period. End of story.
Ok, I will say a little bit more about the book. But you should read Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist! because you will really enjoy it. Fans of romantic comedy movies will get a kick out of Skyler. I can’t imagine anyone not taking an immediate liking to her. I know that I did. I empathized with her, I saw bits of myself in her and I saw bits of so many people I knew in her. She is really relateable. Skyler’s first person point of view was conversational and kept the book flowing right along.
So grab something cold to drink, a snack to much on and sit back and get ready to laugh at Skyler’s adventures as a fresh college grad working on a local paper as their sex columnist. And oh yea, she is a Virgin. This book is a really good time.
But then a gentle knock sounds against my door.
And there’s only one person it could be.
“Skye?” he whispers into the dark.
I could pretend to be asleep, but the alcohol has drowned out my neuroses, replacing them with curiosity. “What do you want, Ollie?”
“I just…” He sighs. My eyes are closed but I can perfectly imagine the way he’s running his hand through his hair, messing it up—an unconscious move he doesn’t even realize makes my heart melt. Makes every girl’s heart melt.
“Don’t apologize,” I say. It’s the closest reference I’ve made to talking about what happened. And he understands immediately. Understands that I don’t want to talk about it—but I doubt he understands why. It’s not because I’m embarrassed or hurt or vulnerable. It’s because I can’t bear to hear the regret in his voice. Because before he did what he did, before that moment, I had the best few minutes of my life. And I don’t want to hear that he wishes they never happened.
“Okay, can I say one thing then?”
“Sure.” I rollover, finally sitting up. Even in the dark, his eyes shine, glowing blue. Or maybe that’s just the alcohol talking.
“It’s just, I can tell you’re nervous about the new job, but you shouldn’t be, Skye. You’re a great writer, and well…” He shrugs, scanning the room for a moment. There’s a note of honesty in his tone that I rarely ever hear, that I’ve learned to recognize over the years. “You don’t have to have sex to be sexy, Skye. Some people do, maybe, but not you. Never you.”
And then he’s gone, leaving me alone in the dark with my racing heart.
