TITLE: What A Boy Wants
AUTHOR: Nyrae Dawn
RATING: 4 STARS (3.5 STARS)
"Courtesy of watching his mom’s relationships, Sebastian Hawkins knows what girls need to do to get a guy. He has what he considers a PHD in hooking up. When he needs extra cash for a car, Sebastian starts up an online venture as The Hook-up Doctor, to anonymously help girls land the guy of their dreams. Of course, his services don’t offer a happily-ever-after guarantee. He’s seen firsthand getting together never means staying together.
And then he falls in love…
With the last girl he would expect…
Totally not in his game plan.
Suddenly, Sebastian finds himself muddled in the game he’s always prided himself on. He can’t even pick up girls at parties anymore! Why would anyone want to be in love when it turns you into a stuttering, screwed-up, mess with really lame stalker tendencies? Stalking? Totally not his gig.
But the Hook-up Doctor won’t let himself go down easily. He’s always known how to give a girl what she wants and now it’s time to figure out what a boy wants… and he definitely plans on getting it."
What A Boy Wants is a hilarious young adult romance novel. The majority of the books that I review are geared toward females. What can I say? I love my chick lit! However, this is definitely a great story for both males and females. Told from Sebastian's POV, girls and guys alike will get a kick out of Sebastian's outlook on girls, games, and love. He's the know-it-all-love-doctor, and when he finds himself falling in love for the first time, he learns that love is not a game!
What A Boy Wants is definitely a little "younger" than what I'm used to reading, but I wouldn't say that it is too young because this book had me cracking up and falling in love right along with the characters.
I gave What A Boy Wants by Nyrae Dawn 4 STARS (3.5 STARS). I recommend this novel to young adults who are searching for a light, fun read. This story is guaranteed to make you smile and give you hope.
