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 is written by Kaitlyn Davies under the name Kay Marie. Something I didn’t realise when I added to my tbr list a few months ago. The only other books I’ve read by her are Gathering Frost and Withering Rose, which are dystopia/fairy-tale mash-up. Which sounds strange but trust me they really good.
The story is told entirely from Skylar’s POV, in the first person. I really enjoyed the humor in this story, it’s pretty light hearted and there are lots of funny moment pretty much right from the beginning. In the opening chapter, Skylar accidently confesses that she is still a virgin to her BFFs brother by accident! I also liked that each chapter started with a new confession.
I definitely got some major Sex and the City vibes from this book which was a nice surprise!
I have to admit a pretty much consumed this in one day it hooked me that much, the one only infuriating thing about this was that it ended on a huge cliff-hanger which I didn’t expect – heck I didn’t realise there was a second book until I got to the end!
I loved Skylar. I really liked how the things that happen to her really true to real life, but not only that her feelings towards what was going on felt true as well.
I really liked Ollie and was rooting for the both them to get it together, even when she met Patrick. But what I did find slightly strange was the amount of time it took him to man up and tell Skylar how he really felt.
This was a really enjoyable read. If your looking for a light-hearted comedy romance then this is a book for you.
My Rating: 3/5 🌟🌟🌟
