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.
“I need new friends – these people know me too well.”
“Truth be told, he was a fantastically gorgeous brooding painter Bridget dated during her freshman year – and yes, he was ridiculously sexy, and yes, he was a bit creepy. Bridget still blames the paint fumes for taking away her sanity – I blame the brood. The brood does things to girls, makes them crazy.”
“’You have a brother?’ I blurt and then bite my lip, hoping it didn’t sound as rude as it did in my head. But really, who expects the spawn of Satan to have a sibling?”
“Me! I must be hot by association! I should hang out with models more often.”
“Dan reminds me of a politician, you know, with one of those smiles that’s just too perfect to be real and looks more like a fancy façade hiding a well of inner disdain?”
“We’re dancing around each other, afraid to get too close – two magnets working on opposite charges, with a certain amount of space constantly between us.”
“We’re like two puzzle pieces that had to get ripped apart before we could see how perfectly we fit together.”
My Review:This tale was fun ride from beginning to end. An easy, breezy, and self-deprecatingly humorous story that was comfortable and entertaining. The characters were realistic, recognizable, and well defined. The story line was unique, and the writing was witty, and entertaining. A quick and easy read that held my attention throughout.
I've always been a writer. I grew up duct taping my novels together, started writing complete manuscripts in high school and studied creative writing at Johns Hopkins University. Upon graduating, I decided it was finally time to actually give my dream career a chance. So, of course, I started writing a young adult paranormal romance series -- and no, I'm not jumping on the bandwagon. I've been a true paranormal supporter for my entire life! I blame my obsession almost completely on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, my all-time favorite television show. And, before you ask: Yes, I own every season... even the post WB ones! I especially challenge anyone to watch the first three seasons and not fall in love with Angel, securing a lifelong love of vampires! Other culprits of my paranormal obsession are some of my favorite authors: JK Rowling, Raymond Feist, Meg Cabot, Richelle Mead, Lynne Ewing and Tamora Pierce.
