"It may have been four years, Kyle, but that doesn’t mean I don’t remember how you operate."

I snatched her hand as she reached to open the door to the studio. I wasn’t ready to end this moment alone with her. "You don’t think I’ve learned a few things since then?"

She smirked and shook her head. "New tricks. Same dog."

“It’s beautiful, but what does the K stand for?”

“Kiss me.”



Before I babble on how much and why I love this book so much, I just want to acknowledge the fact that this book contained a whole lot of Kyle Hamilton...

Plus, it was even in his POV...

And just like that...

Oh yeah, a little reminder, if you want to read this book but you haven't read the first i

¡Decepción! No sentí nada con este libro, en normal, Kyle rompe con prmetida, después de 4 años de repente sienta esa necesidad de estar con Val, ella se siente insegura sobre lo que querrá Kyle(La entiendo, después de 4 años el hombre decide: Hey rompí con Adrianne ¡Vamos a buscar a Val!)
No es ni tierno ni romántico, es empalagoso al punto de llevar al aburrimiento.

No puedo creerlo! Una secuela de V is for Virgin,

Actually,I rarely read New Adult books because :

1. The characters are close on my age level.
2. The characters do some idiotic things, in which if I look at them closely, I can see that there's a possibility that I can relate and I'll do it too if given a chance and I don't like it when I realize that I do stupid things...
3. I hate idiotic characters.

But why on God's green earth did I read this book?!
I blame Rachel for that...

Ya te advertí u.u

Este libro me fascino. Nunca pensé que Kyle pudiera ser tan emocional.

Realmente quede enamorada de el en esta secuela *0* Me gusto mucho su decisión a lograr lo que quería, sin importar lo que tenía que hacer para poder estar con la chica que amaba.
Finalmente Kyle maduro y descubrió que no todo en la vida es sexo. Y por eso lo amo más :3
Valerie, me gusto mucho. Esta Valerie madura y llena de éxitos. Pero a pesar de eso, con u

Ah, este libro. Los POV masculinos tienden a tener algo especial, te brindan la experiencia completa, nuevas perspectivas, motivos que quizá nunca pensaste. O que simplemente te derritas de ternura como en el caso de A is for Abstinence. Recuerdo claramente haber dicho en la reseña de V is for Virgin como es que Kyle Hamilton no me agradaba mucho, no tanto como que odiara al personaje, sólo que lo sentí extrañamente real,
This is the sequel to V is for Virgin novel of Kelly Oram and I'm just happy that she made a follow-up because the ending to that first novel was no way satisfying and it was such a cliffhanger.

I love Kyle Hamilton so much even though he was such an ass and I'm glad that this book is his POV.

I was able to understand him more and believe me I swoon over him and the song he made was really cheesy but at the same time sweet when you read it.

When I read the first book, I wasn’t sure what to make of Kyle. Well yes I didn’t like Kyle but I didn’t hate him either. So I guess Kyle was a neutral character for me back then, but now after I finished reading this book, he’s become one of book boyfriends thatI love. Seriously, I didn’t expect him to be sweet and thoughtful yet still an arrogant himself like the old Kyle.

“Marry me,” I said. I sounded as astonished

As much as this book was much better and much amusing than the first one, V is for Virgin, I am one of the people who vote that it was much better if this book wasn’t written. I think that the ending for V is for Virgin is good enough, leaving things as they are, letting the audience in bit of a hang and in surge of imagination on what would happen.

This book shows what happens after four years Kyle and Val haven’t seen each other. For a point, Kyle was a much more amusing narrator
She smirked and shook her head. “New tricks. Same dog.”

It was impossible not to take her words as a challenge. I pushed her back until she was pinned against the door and leaned in close enough that our breaths mingled. Her eyes snapped wide the same way they always had whenever I’d invaded her personal space, and I watched, satisfied, as she sucked in a lung full of air and held it.

“That mentality will be your downfall this time around, Val.” I leaned in, letting my lips linger at her jawline

I think we all knew what was going to happen in this book. It doesn’t take a genius to figure it out. I mean was pretty corny…

No bring that corn back, because I loved this book anyways! Sure it was kind of predictable, but you know what?

Kyle is still swoon-worthy and amazing.

Even more so, because he is actually serious about being with Val this time. Oh Kyle… you can write me a song anytime. I have to admit though, I was a little passive-aggressive towards him in the beginning of this book, beca
Este libro me pareció de quinta categoria. Esperaba muchisimo más de Valerie y Kyle.
Kyle no me habia agradado en el primer libro, ahora es sumamente detestable. Kelly jamas tendria que haber escrito este libro. Lo unico que Kyle hace es lloriuear por los rincones porque no puede meterse en los pantalones de Val, y basicamente durante toda la novela te vende el cuento de que ella no lo ama porque no quiere abrirse de piernas. Entonces Val en vez de mantenerse fiel a si misma se abre de piernas pa

A is for ASSHOLE.

Me he aguantado los dramas de estos dos, durante dos libros y estoy orgullosa de mi misma por eso.
Es enserio, la autora en este libro nos plantea como ellos estuvieron "enamorados" en el anterior libro y la verdad es que no vi ese "amor" en el libro anterior y me es imposible verlo en este libro, y que este libro siga con su drama absurdo y con Kyle siendo tremendamente idiota...

Si algo tengo que admitir con respecto al libro, es que resulta mucho menos patético que el primero, eso se lleva un gran punto.
Pero… ¡dios mío! ¿Qué pasa con esté libro? En ningún momento cambia el drama, siempre es lo mismo, nunca hay circunstancia alguna en la que realmente haya un problema y los problemas se basan en que Val está enojada o que Kyle no puede controlar su lívido, sus ganas de tocarla, bla, bla, bla.

A is for Abstinence is the sequel to V is for Virgin and is told completely from Kyle's point of view. If you have not read V is for Virgin you should definitely read it first. The back-story is necessary to full appreciate this book.

Personally I loved Val & Kyle so was way excited to read the continuation of their story. I was not disappointed. This was a book I couldn't put down.

Sí, como ven ahí.

Se me hizo super tedioso este libro narrado por Kyle.
Kyle es inmaduro, y aunque haya cumplido, ¿qué? ¿24 años?, sigue siendo el mismo Kyle de V is for Virgin

Y hablemos de la cuestión del tiempo.
Cuando hacia mi review de V is for Virgin me encontré con una review de una chica que se quejaba del libro y el poco tiempo que pasó y cosas así, antes

The characters have grown up over the course of four years and have matured a ton. The best part of this book is that is doesn't take place in a high school!!

This was SO cute! I am glad this entire book is written in Kyle's POV. He comes off as a total douche in V is for Virgin. Now we can understand the reasons behind his actions, which makes him a lot more appealing. Plus, he has matured 1000x over the years. Howev

I can't erase my smile from my face all through out reading this. Kyle Hamilton just blew my mind. He's the most romantic book boyfriend ever! (as of the moment!!!!). He's just epic

His abstinence proved his love for Virgin Val. And admitting the hardships and difficulties with his situation made me melt for him. He was so honest with his feeling to Val. And it almost made me pull Val's hair out for doubting his feelings. That Abstinence challenge was a great step for him. His ways of proving his
