Book Shelf: Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist! by Kay Marie

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 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.

Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist by Kaye Marie is a really bubbly and light-hearted romance featuring a witty and likable main character with a sassy and intelligent voice. 

Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist follows twenty-two year old journalist Skylar “Skye” Quinn who has just landed the job of a lifetime as the spunky new sex columnist in a New York newspaper……only problem is that Skye has no experience in the department she’s expected to give advice on. At all. That's right, Skye is a virgin and now she’s going to have to go all out if she wants to give believable, and honest advice. Throw in the fact her best friend's brother Ollie has just moved in with them, the guy Skye has loved for years but hasn’t seen since one disastrous night, and Skye is about to have to face her fears if she ever hopes to keep her job…..not to mention find love.

I was really impressed with Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist. This is this the kind of fun and energetic contemporary novels I adore; full of romance, humour, friendship and chemistry. Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist was well told, funny and romantic and I easily devoured this novel in a day. Though it’s advertised as a new adult novel, Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist is more on the minimal level, something that actually works for it. Each chapter starts off with a “confession” from Skye that gives you a little hint into what the chapter is about to entail, or answers a question you might have had some the last one.

Skye’s voice was so witty and quirky and it was so easy to relate to her because I could see myself in her. It was impossible to be anything but one hundred percent invested in her journey as she was such a normal, sweet girl. She enjoyed reading, didn’t worry unnecessarily about makeup or her hair and had a good chip on her shoulder. She had attitude, but not to the point that it overshadowed the innocence that seemed to radiate off her too.  

I loved the feeling of this novel. It was fun and cheeky and Kaye Marie manages to do a great job appealing to the young woman in all of us. Skye’s failed attempts at romance are entertaining and cringe worthy but very easy to read about. I adored the friendship Skye had with her best friend Bridget and thought they were really sweet.

Skye has two love interests in this book; Ollie, her best friend’s brother and someone Skye has always harbored feelings for and Patrick, a sexy well put together investment banker she meets and then dates. I have to say I really liked Patrick. Despite his wealth and status Patrick was actually a decent guy and I did actually like him, however anyone could see what direction the story was going in and who Skye was always going to end up with. Not that I’m complaining—Ollie was awesome in my book!

Flirty, funny and wonderfully written, I honestly think Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist could have made a great stand-alone novel, but with Kaye Maire ending the novel where she does and promising a sequel, I’m very interested to see what’s in store for Skye and Ollie next!
