Amazon




From bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis, writing as Kay Marie, comes the second book in the Confessions series, a romantic comedy being hailed as "the new Bridget Jones!" (Broc's Bookcase). 

So, I'm no longer a virgin sex columnist—thank you, Ollie—but if I thought that was going to make my life easier, boy was I wrong! John is back in town determined to win my forgiveness. Blythe is more ready than ever to take me down. Bridget is totally onto the new twinkle in my eye. And, well, Ollie is just as distractingly delicious as usual.

So, naturally, I have a few more confessions to make.

Confession #1: I came up with what I thought would be the perfect plan to keep my relationship with Ollie a secret—pretend to get back together with John!

Confession #2: It backfired. A lot.

This is a sweet romance, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Meg Cabot, and Emily Giffin!


My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:



I swear the word threesome literally runs across his eyes, as though he's a human teleprompter willing me to make him an offer he won't refuse.  And though that would normally have me running for the hills, I'm sort of morbidly intrigued. 


Body fluids?  Works every time.  Thought, I could explore that further.  Menstruation.  Diarrhea.  There's a lot of great material to work with.  I'm pretty sure just saying the word period would be enough to send a guy running for the hills.  And for some reason, men act like women killed Santa Claus when we reveal that we don't poop roses and fart potpourri.


The first time I met you, I was on a play date with Bridge.  You had cooties so we wouldn't let you touch our Barbies.


I'd rather be annoyed by you than happy with anyone else.  Because when we're together, life is perfect.  Not always easy, not always smooth, but right in a way it's never been before.



My Review:


Written in first person from the point of view of a highly anxious, self-centered, neurotic, and panic attack prone mousey young woman named Skylar, Confessions of an Undercover Girlfriend was cleverly humorous, exasperating, entertaining, and highly amusing.  I often wanted to give Skylar a smack for being so annoying, selfish, and immature, but she was already on the job of beating herself up and frequently on the cusp of a freak-out.  Her poor decisions and tendencies for duplicity and avoidance put her in one mortifyingly awkward situation after another.   She was riddled with insecurity and did not communicate well, although she was also highly imaginative and living much too deeply in her head, conjuring wild scenarios to match her irrational fears. 

This being fiction, her poor choices resulted in a self-fulfilling prophecy- sigh, I really wish that happened more often to awful people in real life - karma just takes too long…  Anyway, her epiphany light bulb popped, and after she finally garnered some hard-won insight, her creative plan to rectify her situation was highly inventive and crafty.  I smirked and snorted when she became so nervous she began to ramble and gave the parents an “honest-bomb” of confessed childhood antics.  I adored this ending; it left me with a smile, which, in my opinion, is the perfect way to finish any book.

Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist! (Confessions #1) 



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.
