Book Review: Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist

Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist Cover

Snyopsis from Amazon.com:

Two hot guys. One big lie. What’s a virgin sex columnist to do?

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.

To be honest, I totally stumbled upon this book. It was in my daily email from BookBub and it was free so I said, “Why not?” And it was pretty good. I think I read it all in about a day. It was a cute, short, fun read and my biggest issue with it is that it’s apparently a series.

I went into this book thinking it’d be a cute romance novel and then I’d move on. Instead, now I have to wait until next year just to know what happens next. I can’t believe it. But the fact that I even want to know what happens next is obviously a good sign.

Skylar “Skye” Quinn is adorably shy and totally relatable. Although that might just be because we’re both 22-year-old virgins who’ve never been in love before and work in journalism.Β Who knows? Honestly, though Skye is funny and has that whole “I’m beautiful but I just don’t know it” thing going on, which could’ve been annoying but wasn’t.

And I loved the supporting characters. Skye’s best friend, Bridget (Bridge) was funny in the way that she was Skye’s almost complete opposite. Bridge’s brother, Ollie, was the perfect love interest. I felt myself swoon over him just like Skye did. Also swoon worthy was Skye’s other love interest, Patrick, who was prince charming incarnate.

Besides the surprise that this wasn’t a stand alone novel I had two major issues with this novel. First, the whole premise of this novel is that Skye is a writing a sex column but she’s not having sex. Except we don’t really hear about that a lot. The main focus on the story is Skye’s relationships with Ollie, Patrick, and a few other guysΒ in between. I didn’t really see there being a big issue with her writing this column she had no knowledge to write about.

Second, I found the confessions at the start of each chapter annoying. When they were short (one or two lines) then it was fine but when they were these long paragraphs I just felt like they could’ve just been in the chapter. I didn’t really enjoy this formatting and a part of me wanted to just skip over them but then they actually started playing a role in the plot so I couldn’t.

Still, overall, I really enjoyed this novel. Even so, I’d have to say it’s a borrow. Unless you can get if for free like I did. And if you have Kindle unlimited you actually can get it for free so check it out.

Borrow or Buy:Β Borrow.
