Book Review – A is for Abstinence by Kelly Oram

Series: V is for Virgin, #2
Genre: YA Contemporary
Pages: 204
First Published: May 12, 2014


Six-time Grammy Award-winning musician Kyle Hamilton has it all—money, fame, talent, good looks, and a job he loves. His only regret in life: walking away from a certain notorious virgin because he was too prideful, stubborn, and even afraid to give her the only thing she asked of him—his abstinence.

Four years and a broken heart later, Kyle realizes that sex isn’t everything, and he suddenly can’t stop thinking about the girl that got away. Virgin Val Jensen got under his skin like no one else ever has. He wasn’t ready for her then, but things are different now. He’s grown up, he’s learned a few things, and he’s finally figured out exactly what he wants, or, rather, who he wants.

Kyle Hamilton wants a do-over, and this time he’s willing to do—or not do—whatever it takes.


I’ve instantly became a fan of the author, Kelly Oram the moment I’ve read the very first book of her supernatural series. And since then, I always have this expectation that it’s going to be as great(or greater) than the previous book that I’ve read from her. And so far, I wasn’t disappointed at all. This book is awesome. Not just because it was written base on Kyle’s POV but also because it was able to answer all of my questions and meet all of my expectations. I’ve never read a full man’s POV before that was from a female writer, so this one is definitely the first for me. And in all fairness, it really did sound like a real guy talking. Whenever I read a book, I always have countless predictions. And after a bunch of predictions, not one of them were stated in this story. Dang! I think I don’t have any chance of being a seer eh?! Haha.

Unlike the first installment, this book isn’t a teeny weeny romance but a matured one. One reason I was excited to read this book is that I want to see how matured Kyle have become. Well, I must say that I like the Kyle in this book than the previous one of course, everybody wants a matured guy eh? But what’s interesting is, he’s still a little slut, but only to Val I guess?! Haha, well, read it for yourself then 😛 Also, I was so proud of Val’s character. She grew up to be a bright respectable woman. No doubt Kyle agreed to this abstinence challenge eh?

As what I’ve mentioned, this book talks about Kyle’s life after he walks away with the notorious Virgin Val. I was even surprised to know that he has a fiance? What da right?! But his reluctance to sing the cryin’ shame, which is the song he wrote for Val, my love bulb instantly glow, haha. I never doubt that he’s still into Val. But her skank fiance asked her to sing that song on his birthday in front of their friends! What a b*tch eh?! At first Kyle wasn’t ready to sing that song for her, but when he’s gearing up in the stage and is ready to sing it for her, they found out that her fiance is making out with Brian (the one who portrayed Kyle in the V is for Virgin movie) And hallelujah! Well, I’m not cheering because Kyle was hurt, but I was cheering because they don’t belong to each other (and who am I to talk eh?), he only belongs to Val 😛

I like the book to highest level, the only thing that I like the least of this book is the drama. Nah! I’m never a fan of it, but in all fairness, it wasn’t that annoying at all. And have I told you how I love the ending?! Oh lala! He wrote again another song for her, and it’s crazily amazing. And it’s so so sweet.

So far, I haven’t read any terms or words that I am not familiar with. So I guarantee you guys that it’s a very easy to read book. And as I’ve said above, this story is far from cliché. Love how all the characters especially Robin and his husband. Dang! I can’t help but be happy for their baby boy.

This book proves that true love really waits. This is highly recommended to other hopeless romantics like me.

Oh yeah, a little reminder. If you want to read this book, I would highly recommend that you read the first installment V is for Virgin first. You will never ever ever regret it.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars!
