"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 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 for a moment too long before bringing them to her ear. "Same old tricks," I whispered. "New man."

With that, I kissed her cheek and breezed past her into the studio, leaving her flustered and in need of another moment to collect herself all over again.

Best selling YA romance author Kelly Oram takes her first dive into new adult romance with this heartfelt and hilarious tale of a rockstar and a virgin.

Rockstar to the core, 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.

Note from the author: A is for Abstinence is the second and final installment in the V is for Virgin series. While V is for Virgin was a young adult book, A is for Abstinence is a new adult romance and was intended for a more mature audience. Not only is this story told from the perspective of a notorious bad boy, the characters have grown from the first book and are older now. The book was written with a more mature audience in mind. It's still PG-13 (I don't write graphic sex scenes) but it's not as clean as my YA romance. Please keep that in mind if you're a sensitive reader or thinking about passing it to your teenage daughters.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This was a book I couldn’t put down. 19. Juni 2014
Von toobusyreading - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

A mere 6 hours after A is for Abstinence arrived in my inbox I have already read it. I loved it and didn’t put it down. In fact I sat through my son’s band concert last night reading while listening to his concert, was reading at stop lights, cleaning up the front room with my kindle in hand…yeah it was one of those kinds of books.

I’m a huge Kelly Oram fan. I love the way she writes, I love her characters, I love her story-lines. She draws me in and her characters and scenes come alive. A is for Abstinence was no exception and was exactly what I was expecting from a sequel.

The chemistry between Kyle and Val has plenty of steam in this one. If you have read V is for Virgin you have an idea of what to expect but Kyle and Val are now grown ups so the heat level has turned up a few notches. The entire book revolves around sex but honestly it was a heck of a lot cleaner than the “sweet” romance book I started reading a couple days ago. This book has a great message and is a lot of fun but if you are a squeaky clean reader this one is not for you. I won’t be giving it to my 14 year old to read as it is much more adult than young adult.

Rating: 5 Stars – I loved it!

Content: some language – most of it mild, innuendo and talk of sex but no sex scene, some passionate making out, a few scenes that will likely make a conservative reader blush.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Everything I could Have Hoped for in the Sequel! 22. Mai 2014
Von Raquel Romero - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been waiting for a sequel to V is for Virgin for what seems like forever, and when Kelly Oram announced there would be a vote as to which of her "heroes" was getting a sequel, I knew Kyle Hamilton was The One. Ladies (and gents) if you haven't read V is for Virgin, then this review is probably going to spoil some of it, but I'll try my best not to spoil much. I absolute loved V is for Virgin--the storyline, the characters, the obnoxious, maddeningly-sexy mess that is Kyle Hamilton--I loved it all! And with the ambiguous ending to V, I was just dying to know more about Val and Kyle's story.

A is for Abstinence is told completely in Kyle's POV, and while I certainly missed Val's narrative, I truly got to know the infuriating mess that is Kyle Hamilton. Picking up a couple of months before the epilogue in V, A is for Abstinence gives us an inside look into everything that went down with Kyle's relationship, and ultimately, what set his new "journey" in motion. Val Jensen has always been the one that got away, and once Kyle starts thinking about what could have been, he becomes determined to win her back, no matter the cost.

Like Val, I always had a soft spot for Kyle, and the sequel, I'm able to really get to know him. It's pretty clear to everyone around Kyle that he's been in love with Val from the moment he first met her, and it takes him a long time to truly understand the reasons that drove Val to abstain from sex. Val's choices and her beliefs were the main issues in V is for Virgin, and they're recurring the second time around. This time, however, Kyle knows that if he wants a future with Val, he has to be willing to wait for her.

It was such a treat to see all these characters I loved from the first book make an appearance this time around--Cara, Shane, Robin, etc.--and I'm happy that Val and Cara are able to slowly repair their friendship. I always found V's ending bittersweet, not just because it's never clearly defined that Val and Kyle end up together, but because Val and Cara's friendship had taken a big hit after that final Tralse (Kyle's band) concert. Despite the story happening through Kyle's eyes, we get to see Val and Cara take those first steps in becoming friends once more.

A is for Abstinence was everything I was hoping for: sweet, funny, heartfelt, and final. Val and Kyle get their happy ending, and I couldn't have asked for more. While the sequel could be categorized as New Adult--after all, Kyle and Val are well into their 20's--the romance is still mild. But in true Kyle Hamilton fashion, it's certainly present and sensual. If you haven't read V is for Virgin, I would definitely advise you to do so because a lot of the backstory is lost otherwise. If you have read V, then A is for Abstinence should be next in your TBR pile!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Incredible Ending To an Electrifying YA Sequel! Beware of some crude language and terms but not extreme. 22. Mai 2014
Von LAWonder - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This was an amazing finish to such a wonderful duel-book story! It is one of a set which all youth leaders should promote. My only concern is the usage of rough language terms.

This is the continuation of 'V' is for Virgin' which centered on Valerie's story, however, 'A is for Abstinence' is Kyle's story. Kelly was so clever in her creation of the two books from both the girl's and guy's point of view. It touches on Val's life during those four years between Val's and Kyle's goodbye yet primarily is centered on his life during that time. Much has happened to give him a different view on life. He explores the possibility of perhaps once again finding Val.

If possible, I think this second book is even more captivating than the first! All YA are sure to find great reading pleasure in both books!

The book cover is not as eye-catching as 'V is for Virgin' yet very applicable to the story. Kyle will undoubtedly become a teen-age and YA favorite...What's not to love!?!

My review of this book gives it a strong Four and a Half Stars rating.
*The pdf file was sent for an honest review, of which I have given.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A little over the top 18. Mai 2014
Von Lulu - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I am only going to give this book 3 stars because of the beginning. I thought that one of the opening scenes with the cheerleaders was a little over the top for the classification that this book is supposed to fall under. Kelly is a great write and all of her YA books are books that I am proud to let my teenage daughters read. However, I thought that the threesome, well foursome, was really inappropriate for teenagers. I was embarrassed, and don't think I will let my girls read it.

After that, the book really was great, and she could have done without that whole scene and produced a great book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen W is for Wonderful 17. Mai 2014
Von Jennifer R. Shiels - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I just finished this book and I loved it. Like the first book, it was wonderful. There are alot of books out there that have similar things happening in them. This book and the first one - V is for Virgin are so original and different from the rest. I also loved how Kelly Oram had V is for Virgin from Valerie Jensen's point of view and how this book - A is for Abstinence from Kyle Hamilton's point of view. This book is 4 years later from the first book. Kyle thought he had it all, he had money, adoring fans, creativity and a love for music, and even was about to get married. At his birthday party, his fiancee tries to get him to play the song Cryin' Shame which was about Val Jensen. He has refused to play that song for years and doesn't want to. The song and the muse for the song haunt him even to this day but he doesn't ever let himself think about it. His fiancee tries to set him up and ends up cheating on him. Broken hearted, Kyle tries to lose himself in countless women but it's just not the same. He realizes that sex isn't the same without love and intimacy. He finally realizes that he let go of a once in a lifetime woman 4 years ago when he couldn't give Valerie what she asked for and needed. So he decides to finally start working on himself - he starts writing music again which he hasn't done since Reid died. He continues abstaining from sex. He does what he can to reconnect with Valerie. It has been 4 years and Valerie has graduated from Stanford with Economics and Political Science double degrees. In the fall, she is going back to Stanford to start her Masters Degree in Political Science. She has been busy with school and starting F is for Families that helps with adoption. She has seen lots of her friends meet the person they would love and ended up married. But she hasn't dated much and every boyfriend she ever had always ended up breaking up with her and hurting her because they do not want to wait till marriage to have sex. So she just stopped dating all together.

This book shows there is so much more to love and relationships than just sex. Kyle and Valerie are so different and from two different worlds. But that doesn't mean that they shouldn't be together. They just bring so many great things together and bring together so much more than superficial things. Valerie and Kyle have so much more to them than just Virgin Val and Rock Star Kyle Hamilton. They are actual people that have deep thoughts. Definitely worth the read.
