REVIEW: Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist! (Confessions #1) by Kaitlyn Davis writing as 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 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 Thoughts

When Skye gets a promotion at the newspaper she works for, she couldn't be happier. But it also means that she has to confess to her best friend Bridget. She has to tell her that she is a VIRGIN! How can she write a sex column if she has never had sex herself?

After calming herself from a panic attack on the way home from work, she decides to confess all to her friend. Well she thinks that she is talking to Bridget. Nope! The noises she heard coming from the kitchen weren't coming from her best friend, it was Bridget's older brother Oliver "Ollie" that just heard her confess that she was a virgin, and a sex columnist!

Skye has been in love with Ollie since she was five years old. And has been avoiding him for the last four years, after something that happened between them (which we get told about later in the book). Ollie is the worst person she could have confessed to. Besides being drop dead gorgeous and having eyes that will melt your heart, he's mischievous, likes to antagonize and loves pushing Skye's buttons and forcing her out of her comfort zone.

What follows is a very enjoyable romantic comedy.

My first impression of Skylar "Skye" Quinn was that she was "mousy". She's quiet, clueless, naive and suffers from panic and anxiety attacks. But she's extremely likable, and very easy to relate to and connect with.

I empathized with Skye's character and the situations she found herself in, but I also wanted to shake some sense into her! The naivety began to grate on my nerves, but I also can't picture Skye being any other way. I just couldn't believe that one twenty-two year old could be so clumsy!

Ollie was to die for! He was protective and concerned and as much as he teased his sister and Skye, you could tell that it was all in fun and he felt nothing but affection for his sister and her best friend. Over the course of the story that affection grew towards Skye.

I really enjoyed Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist! It was a sweet lighthearted read that had me laughing, made me angry and totally wiped away my anger with "awe (or awwww)" moments. It does end on with a cliffhanger that sets us up for the next installment in the Confessions series, and although you are left with some questions in your mind, this book feels complete. In all honesty, the ending kind of felt like a punch in the face. Didn't see that coming at all and it's going to make an interesting next book!

I look forward to reading more of this series!
