I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review, this does not effect my opinion of the book or the content of my review in any way.
Description from Goodreads:
So, I’m no longer a virgin sex columnist – thank you, Ollie – but if I thought that was going to make my life easier, boy was I wrong! John is back in town determined to win my forgiveness. Blythe is more ready than ever to take me down. Bridget is totally onto the new twinkle in my eye. And, well, Ollie is just as distractingly delicious as usual.

So, naturally, I have a few more confessions to make.

Confessions #1: I came up with what I thought would be the perfect plan to keep my relationship with Ollie a secret – pretend to get back together with John!

Confession #2: It backfired. A lot.

I really enjoyed the first Confessions book, Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist, I was lucky enough to take part in that tour too and you can find my review of book one here! I’d definitely recommend picking up book one before diving into Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist, but it’s such a great book you won’t regret it!
In my review of Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist I made it pretty clear that I liked Skye, and hated that the book had ended! Book two gave me more Skye and her clumsy shenanigans, and I got a resolution to the way book one ended!
After reading both books I can happily say that I am a fan of Kay Marie’s writing style. She gets me hooked immediately and I end up devouring the book in less than a day. I found that Confessions #1 made me laugh out loud, and I am happy to report that Confessions of an Undercover Girlfriend had the same effects! 
A character that I particularly enjoyed in this book was Blythe. In the first book she’s pretty nasty and determined to get rid of Skye, whether that be from wok or her brother’s personal life. I would say that Blythe undergoes that largest character growth over the two books, and she ended up being one my favourites! 
Kay Marie writes brilliant characters and they all just worked so well together, although Bridget can be loud and opinionated, at some points overly so, we also saw the calm and caring side to her. The only character I hands down did not like was John, but that was pretty much guaranteed!
I would highly recommend going out and picking up Kay Marie’s Confessions books if you haven’t already, they are incredibly enjoyable New Adult reads, and they aren’t overly smutty which is really refreshing!

Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist | Blog Tour | Review and Giveaway

I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, this does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review in any way.

Description from Goodreads:

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 was featured in my First Impression Friday review which you can read here
I really enjoyed Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist, it was fun and scratched my New Adult itch. I liked Skylar immediately, she’s just your average 22 year old, very down to earth and clumsy as hell. The fact that she’s clumsy and prone to making herself look like an idiot, along with the fact that she’s not some makeup wearing fashion guru that’s doesn’t even try was very refreshing and appealing. There’s nothing wrong with makeup wearing fashion gurus that don’t even try, but sometimes it’s nice to find a character that screams ‘I’m a real person’. And honestly, if she was a makeup wearing fashion guru the book really wouldn’t have worked. 
Not only did Skye’s clumsy ways make her a very realistic character, they also added a lot of humour to the book. Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist had me laughing out loud on public transport, making me look like a crazy person. But it was just so funny! 
So Skye gets a dating column, and she has to get into the nitty ditty details of a 22 year olds dating life, which you’d expect to be full of sexual exploits. As the title suggests Skye’s life is very far from that, so she enlists the help of her best friend Bridget. I’d really have liked to see more of Skye’s work and the writing of the column. I think it would have definitely been an entertaining addition to the novel. 
For the column Skye is told to start dating. Now, the reader knows that Skye has feelings for Ollie, Bridget’s older brother and their new roommate. So at this point I was wondering how the whole dating someone thing was going to work out. Especially when Patrick walked on the scene and I really liked him, I didn’t want Skye to hurt him, crazy as it may sound. I don’t want to give anything away, but Kay Marie handled the whole fancying your best friend’s older brother while being in a relationship thing very well. 
A moment that really stood out to me in Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist was the ‘confession’ at the beginning of Chapter 21. It went as follows,
Want to know the real reason I’m a virgin? Because I want to be. Maybe it’s idealistic, but I’ve been waiting to be in love with someone who truly loves me back. So maybe my first confession shouldn’t have been that I’m a twenty-two year old virgin. I mean, who cares? The real confession is that I’m a twenty-two year old who’s never been in love. And to be honest, that’s much more depressing to me.”
That really struck a chord with me, it’s a view that I think may have become outdated and forgotten in todays society among the over sexualisation of men and women and the infamous sex tapes of the famous. Who cares if you have or haven’t had sex? I don’t understand what the big deal is with the label ‘virgin’, so I thank Kay Marie for creating a character that wants love above shedding a label.
In the first impression review (read here) I mentioned that I thought Ollie was a bit immature. After finishing the book I can say that this point stayed with me for a lot of the book. My annoyance did subside quite a bit, especially as it became apparent that jealousy was ruling Ollie’s actions. (Swoon or what?!)
My one major complaint with Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist? The ending! I was not ready for it to end the way it did. One minute I’m happily reading and the next there’s an advertisement for the next book in the series. Well, it looks like I’ll be reading that one as well then!!

First Impression Friday | Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist

First Impression Friday is a weekly feature hosted here at Alexandra Florence Books. I’ve been finding that what I think about a book changes a lot from beginning to end, so I thought it would be really fun to share my first impressions of a book, and hopefully read yours too! If you want to join in all you have to do is link your First Impression Friday post in the linky, grab the picture and make sure you link back to me!


I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, this does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review in any way.

Published 18th May 2015

All I seem to be reading at the moment are contemporary New Adult books, Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist fits right in with the other New Adult books I’ve been enjoying. Skye is like the heroines of the other books I’ve been reading, she’s not experienced in the bedroom. This had the potential to be corny and cliche, but so far that’s not been the case. In fact, I’m really enjoying it.
Skye is shy and socially awkward, but then aren’t we all? She lives with her more outgoing best friend, and then her best friend’s brother moves in with them too. Ollie (the brother) and Skye have history, Skye keeps alluding to it but I don’t know what happened between them just yet. I’m thinking that it’s romantic, and from what I’ve read Skye has definitely still got feelings, and there are clues that Ollie has too.
I really like Skye, she genuinely seems like an ordinary girl, so far Kay Marie has done a good job of creating a realistic and likeable character, very important for me in contemporary NA. I really like Bridget too, although I haven’t really seen that much of her yet.
Now onto Ollie, he sounds gorgeous, as all male love interests seem to, and he’s a chef. Bonus points to Kay Marie for that one, is there anything more attractive than a hot guy cooking? No, I don’t think there is. (Well, maybe Tom Hiddleston cooking, but that’s beside the point!) Bridget and Skye have been best friends for a long time, so that means Ollie has known Skye for forever too. This results in Ollie and Skye being very familiar with each other, and understanding each other’s actions. Skye can predict exactly what Ollie is going to do, I’m not saying she’s got crazy psychic abilities, she can read his body language and cues that someone who’s only known him for a short period of time would not be able to pick up on. I really appreciate this knowledge that they have of each other, it shows that they are close and clearly pay a lot of attention to each other.
I’m liking where the book is going, but I have to say that I’ve been finding that Ollie is a bit immature. It’s not something that’s going to make me put down the book, and maybe that side of his personality will grow on me, but for now it’s a slight annoyance. 
To end on a positive, I laughed out loud on the bus when I was reading Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist, so that’s a very good sign!
