Synopsis(Goodreads): Before this all happened, the closest I'd ever come to getting physical with a guy was playing the board game Operation. Okay, so maybe that sounds pathetic, but it's not like there were any guys at my high school who I cared to share more than three words with, let alone my body.
Then I met Wes, a track star senior from across town. Maybe it was his soulful blue eyes, or maybe my hormones just started raging. Either way, I was hooked. And after a while, he was too. I couldn't believe how intense my feelings became, or the fact that I was seeing—and touching—parts of the body I'd only read about in my Gray's Anatomy textbook. You could say Wes and I experienced a lot of firsts together that spring. It was scary. It was fun. It was love.
And then came the fall.
Anatomy of a Boyfriend is a very interesting and intriguing story of first love and all the ups and downs that come with it.
I thought that Anatomy of a Boyfriend had a really nice romance. After reading so much YA with instalove, I was truly sick of it. This book was such a change of pace and it was really quite refreshing. I thought it was very interesting to read about Dominique’s first love, and all the heartbreak and love that came with it. The romance felt real, and not cheesy.
Dominique was a pretty good character. Reading about her experiences with first love gave me insight about what it’s like to fall in love. She was kind of obsessive toward her boyfriend, which was a little weird. Wes was a good character too, and I ended up hating him along with Dominique at the end of the book. Out of all the characters, my favorite was definitely Amy. She was such a good friend to Dominique that I couldn’t help loving her. I thought that all the characters were really good in this book.
My favorite part of this whole book was when Dominique went off to college. I’ve been watching a lot of “Grey’s Anatomy” lately, and I thought it was a great touch that Dominique was going to premed. I thought that was such a great addition to the book. The plot was pretty good too, but it really picked up when the characters went off to college.
