I received a copy of this book from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.

People may find that this book is very similar to Megan Quinn’s The Virgin Romance Novelist. It’s the same type of heroine – virgin, professional, working on a career that is so far out from her real persona. Kay Marie’s book also had really funny moments between the main characters, and the secondary characters weren’t so bad, either.

I have to say that I liked this book. However, I did not love it. I feel like the title was just written to get people’s attention. There was very little reference to her job as a sex columnist. I mean, there weren’t even sample paragraphs of what her articles were like. What I could imagine from the references given was that her column was really just a dating column and the sex things there weren’t really all that down and dirty. Now, if her column was about sex advice where people wrote to her about their sex problems, I would have been more amused.

I liked the hero. I couldn’t really understand why he and the heroine were supposed to end up together, though. I mean, he said it so himself that before that momentous night years ago, he never really saw her as anything but his sister’s best friend and sort of an honorary sister for him. So, there goes.

There is a cliffhanger at the end of the book that will open the story to yet another book of confessions from the heroine because once again, she is going to find herself living a lie. Honestly, at this point, I would think that a heroine that consciously makes decisions to live in a lie is not a good heroine at all. However, I would still read the next book when it comes out because, hey, I want to know what happens. Nevertheless, I feel like it would have been so much better to really end the story the morning after the heroine loses her virginity. Then, the author could probably make the next book about the best friend or about Patrick, even.
