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?
I really, really enjoyed this book. Was it a little predictable? For the most part yeah, but not completely. Some things that I really thought were going to happen, didn't, and I can't even tell you how grateful I am for that. I did think that I had it pretty much figured out, right until the ending.
I really liked Skye, mostly because I completely related to her and all of her social awkwardness. Of course I loved Oliver and all of his teasing and protective ways, but I also really liked Patrick. Which made it hard to root for anyone. It kind of sucks when there is no clear-cut bad guy. Of course it's pretty obvious who Skye belongs with, so there's that.
I can't wait to find out what happens next!! I also hope that we get to read about more about Bridget in the future because she was a fun character as well.
Overall, this was a sweet and fun read and I enjoyed the writing style and feel like all of the characters were well-developed and frankly I can't wait to read more.
*I received an ARC from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review
All the way up to the last couple pages, actually the last few paragraphs and the summary for the 2nd book where I just threw my hands up and yelled WTF????
This was a solid 4star until that point. Only four, because the character being in her own head so much made me skim quite a bit. The ending though... ruined the book!
I should say upfront that I'm not a huge reader of contemporary romance. But with a title like "Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist," how could I resist? In this hilarious book, Kay Marie turns a witty yet compassionate eye on dating in the big city. A few things I loved:
- Skye. Skye is our main character, a freshly hired assistant editor in the lifestyle section of a New York paper. Slight problem: she's been hired as a sex columnist, and ... well, the title gives you an idea of the main problem there. Skye reminds me of my mother's Australian Shepherd: beautiful (though she doesn't know it), earnest, intelligent, adorable, but with a neurotic streak that will be her undoing. Skye just wants to do a good job! Even if that means semi-sort-of-totally lying about her sex life! Because Skye is so endearing, honest (to readers, if not to the world), and willing to grow and reflect, it's great fun to go on this journey with her. I spent a lot of the book cheering for her because I recognized myself in her, back when I was young and insecure and needed to master a few more social skills. =)
- The writing. Kay Marie is utterly engaging and really funny. I started reading bits of this book out loud to my family and roommate because I just had to share. Marie is also adept at telling you everything you need to know about characters and their relationships with each other (even complex ones spanning 10+ years) in just a few lines. I did notice a few typos and grammatical errors, but only a smattering.
- The female friendships. Bridget, Skye's best friend, is a truly great BFF, and Skye clearly appreciates her. Even better, despite Skye's self-diagnosed neurotic tendencies, she's not the type to put other women down. She gets jealous, sure, she's only human, but she doesn't project her insecurities onto other people. The healthy relationships she has with the women in her life were a breath of fresh air.
Now here's my one problem ...
I didn't care for the love interest.
At first, I thought Ollie was fine! But then the author introduced another love interest, and he was so charming and such a perfect gentleman--not to mention good-humored and sexy--and I started to tire of Ollie's constant territorial behavior (towards his sister as well as Skye). He also picks on Skye, which I think was supposed to be mutual and a sign of how comfortable they were with each other, but I only got one example in the book of Skye giving as good as she got, and that was after Ollie'd already pulled a lot of nonsense. Like the bard Katy Perry says, Ollie is hot and then cold, he's yes then he's no, and it was hard for me to cheer for Skye's ultimate, inevitable choice to go out with him when all I could think was, "You think that stuff is gonna STOP when you're with him? It's going to be ten times worse." Skye herself doesn't seem to think ending up with Ollie is a good idea, per se: she seems more resigned to the fact that she's in love with him, and doesn't want to spend her whole life wondering what could've been. It's romantic FOMO, and I wanted more for Skye.
That having been said, I think Ollie's flaws only got glaring once Skye started dating a guy who never made her feel bad. (Team Patrick!) In general, if you're looking for a laugh, a delightful heroine, good pacing, and minimal girl-on-girl hate, Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist has all you dream of and more. I'd definitely recommend it.
