First Impression Friday
is a weekly feature hosted here at Alexandra Florence Books. I've been finding that what I think about a book changes a lot from beginning to end, so I thought it would be really fun to share my first impressions of a book, and hopefully read yours too! If you want to join in all you have to do is link your First Impression Friday

I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, this does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review in any way.
All I seem to be reading at the moment are contemporary New Adult books, Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist
fits right in with the other New Adult books I've been enjoying. Skye is like the heroines of the other books I've been reading, she's not experienced in the bedroom. This had the potential to be corny and cliche, but so far that's not been the case. In fact, I'm really enjoying it.
Skye is shy and socially awkward, but then aren't we all? She lives with her more outgoing best friend, and then her best friend's brother moves in with them too. Ollie (the brother) and Skye have history, Skye keeps alluding to it but I don't know what happened between them just yet. I'm thinking that it's romantic, and from what I've read Skye has definitely still got feelings, and there are clues that Ollie has too.
I really like Skye, she genuinely seems like an ordinary girl, so far Kay Marie has done a good job of creating a realistic and likeable character, very important for me in contemporary NA. I really like Bridget too, although I haven't really seen that much of her yet.
Now onto Ollie, he sounds gorgeous, as all male love interests seem to, and he's a chef. Bonus points to Kay Marie for that one, is there anything more attractive than a hot guy cooking? No, I don't think there is. (Well, maybe Tom Hiddleston cooking, but that's beside the point!) Bridget and Skye have been best friends for a long time, so that means Ollie has known Skye for forever too. This results in Ollie and Skye being very familiar with each other, and understanding each other's actions. Skye can predict exactly what Ollie is going to do, I'm not saying she's got crazy psychic abilities, she can read his body language and cues that someone who's only known him for a short period of time would not be able to pick up on. I really appreciate this knowledge that they have of each other, it shows that they are close and clearly pay a lot of attention to each other.
I'm liking where the book is going, but I have to say that I've been finding that Ollie is a bit immature. It's not something that's going to make me put down the book, and maybe that side of his personality will grow on me, but for now it's a slight annoyance.
To end on a positive, I laughed out loud on the bus when I was reading Confessions of a Virgin Sex Columnist, so that's a very good sign!
