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.

Here’s a little sneak peek on chapter one! 😉
“And that’s not even the best part—they want me, the virgin English major, to write a column. A dating column. Okay, a sex column…”
My throat is starting to close, and it’s highly possible that hives are breaking out along my neck. I can’t help but reach a few fingers up to rub at my skin as I try to swallow, fighting the chalky feeling on my tongue.
“And, I sort of said yes.”
Well, there it is. I said it. Now do you see?
I’m a farce. A fake. In my utter desperation to land a job with a full-time salary (and benefits!), I created the worst situation any hopeful journalist could ever be in. I’m going to be a reporter who can’t report the truth. A liar. A sham. They’ll run me out of the city before my first column is ever printed. I’ll never work in newsprint again. I’ll be forced to return home a failure, begging to oversee the editing of my high school gazette, surrounded by stories about football games and science projects for my entire life, praying for a student-teacher affair or drinking scandal to liven things up. I’ll—
Did I say any of that tirade out loud?
“Yeah?” I call back, pulled from my paranoia.
But then my heart stops.
Even my brain stops…for a second anyway.
The full sound of that voice carries to my ears and it’s not Bridget’s. It’s not even a woman’s. And I recognize it.
I’d recognize it anywhere.
“Ollie?” I squeak.
“Skye…” he answers. Is it possible for someone’s voice to be smiling?
But I don’t believe it—I don’t want to believe it. I ask again, hoping for a different answer. “Oliver McDonough?”
“Skylar Quinn?” he asks, and I actually hear a snicker this time.
I stand up and run to the kitchen, tripping over my own feet and throwing my arms against the wall to keep from falling over as I soar through the opening.
And there he is.
Six foot two. Sinfully dark brown hair. Brilliantly turquoise eyes.
Bridget’s older brother.
And the last person I ever wanted to see in the world.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Bridgit MDonough!
Name: Bridget McDonough – Bridge to anyone brave enough to attempt it!
Occupation: Assistant at an art gallery in SoHo
Who Is She? The main character Skylar’s best friend, roommate, confidant, and all-around saviour! She has a take-no-prisoners attitude, will defend the people she loves, but also has a soft spot for a good time! She’s the carefree artist who perfectly balances out Skylar’s neurotic tendencies 🙂
Loves: Skye, duh! Painting—a close second! The smell of a fresh canvas, the stained overalls hidden with her oil paints, her brother—as annoying as he can be, tossing death stares at anyone who warrants one, dancing until the sun comes up, and generally living life to it’s fullest.
Hates: Her brother’s overprotective gene, the fact that her father won’t reprimand him about it, anytime people she loves are fighting, Skylar’s asshole ex-boyfriend (and a few other people on her list), and, well, when she can’t seem to get the colors of the sky just right. Oh, and string cheese—something about it just seems, wrong…
Guilty Pleasures: Her ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’ Christmas slippers and a good Long Island Iced Tea
