Blog Tour & Review: Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist by Kay Marie

I'm very pleased to be participating in the blog tour for Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist by Kay Marie.  Check out the information and review for the book, as well as the giveaway below!

Release Date: May 18, 2015
Genre: New Adult Contemporary

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.

This book had me from the very beginning.  Skyler "Skye" Quinn narrates the story in such a fun, quirky, cute and funny way that you just can't help but love her immediately.  She's an everywoman who is smart, capable, and quirky, and all of this comes sparkling off the page.  She tends to space out when someone talks to her, as her minds works in a million different directions, and this characterization came across brilliantly.

All the characters were very well done in the story.  I love her fiesty best friend, Bridget, and I loved Oliver...although I would have liked to have seen a little bit more from him.  Perhaps a few more scenes between him and Skye to make him more of an impact on a daily basis in her life.  I think it would have increased Skye's conflict quite a bit, since she's been in love with him for years.  I kind of wanted to see more of that struggle on her end.

However, the story was so engaging and Skye's narrative so engrossing, that this didn't detract from the story very much for me.  I loved watching Skye try to maneuver her way through being a sex columnist who happens to be a virgin.  She has to attempt to write a believable sex column using real life experience, and some of these scenarios made for some very funny moments throughout the story.

The book was a fast-paced read that really engrossed me, but Skye stole the show over any other character, or even the story itself.  Her narration was so fun to read, that the book could have been about anything and I probably would have loved it.  The author did an amazing job conveying her character and making her leap off the page in a three-dimensional way.  I was extremely gratified to discover that there will be a sequel to this book, and I can't wait to get my hands on it to read more of Skye's wonderful thoughts.  A very cute read!
