What A Boy Wants by Nyrae Dawn, synopsis from goodreads:
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.
Today I decided on joining the Speed Dating Review Link up from my dear Bloggy Friends Mary – The Book Swarm-
basically it’s a short type of review! “Thursday is Speed Date Night. What’s a Book Speed Date? It’s a quickie review–about 150 words or so–of any genre book. If you want to join in the speed dating fun, sign up in the Linky. The speed date is all about “meeting” new books.” From Mary The Bookswarm.
Speed Dating with Sebastian from What A Boy Wants
What A Boy wants was unbelievable cute and so so much fun!!! The story centers around Sebastian who despite hooking up girls with other boys, he never stayed along with a girl himself. Until he realizes he’s in love with his best friend…. And things get complicated for “The Hook Up Doctor” *snickers*
Cooky, Smug – but there is a cuteness underneath!
What I loved most about this book was the absolutely clear, unique and definitely teenage male voice of Sebastian! The author – despite being female – captured the tone perfectly! I loved Sebastians slightly arrogant, smug and cooky character because inside he’s the cutest boy ever! The relation between him and his mother was most adorable and very very sweet- he never considered himself to “manly” to kiss and love his mother!
Perfect male teenage voice – beware, you’ll fall for him!
I loved the romance and I loved this story! The only reason why I’m taking out 1 star was that it was slightly predictable towards the end. Other than this? Nyrae Dawn
has a new fan! Love her voice, her writing and her insights into a teenage boys mind! What a Boy Wants
is a must read for everyone who loves male POV’s, contemporary romance with a funny and light touch.
I bought this book because of a fantastic Blogger Review!!!
Although What a Boy Wants
is a Standalone, Nyrae Dawn
wrote a companion book What A Boy Needs
– which features Sebastians best friend Jaden, who we already got to know in this book. I still have to read it – but it’s super high on my wish list!! Also, Nyrae Dawn
has another book coming out soon – wich I’m dying to read as soon as it comes out! Karma Bites
comes out August and it sounds awesome and fun!
Happy Friday my Friends and .. please go and speed – date with Sebastian!
What a Boy Wants is the perfect example for the All Male Challenge!!!
