Synopsis (Goodreads): With Judy Blume-like honesty and insight, this sequel to Anatomy of a Boyfriend is about life after first love--romance, sex, friendship, family, and the ups and downs of life as a single girl.

After everything that happened—my first boyfriend, my first time, my first breakup—jumping back into the dating game seemed like the least healthy thing I could do. It’s not that I didn’t want to fall in love again, since that’s about the best feeling ever. But as a busy college premed still raw from heartbreak, which is the worst feeling ever, I figured I’d lie low for a while. Of course, as soon as I stopped looking for someone, an impossibly amazing—and devastatingly cute—guy came along, and I learned that having a new boyfriend is the quickest way to recover from losing your old one.

The moment we got together, all my preconceptions about romance and sex were turned upside down. I discovered physical and emotional firsts I never knew existed. I learned to let go of my past by living in the present. It was thrilling. It was hot. It was just what the doctor ordered.

But I couldn’t avoid my future forever.
My Review
I enjoyed Anatomy of a Single Girl even more than Anatomy of a Boyfriend. It was really interesting to read about Dom's second boyfriend, and seeing her story continue.  
Dom definitely grew up in this book. She had a year more experience and a first love under her belt at the the beginning of this book. Whenever she was contemplating her relationship, she didn't go through all the complicating things like she did in the last book. I admired that she was weary to go into a new relationship, but she took the plunge and went for it,  and I was proud of her.
The overall plot was similar to Anatomy of a Boyfriend, but I thought it was still really good. Enought about it was diferent that kept me reading, and I was interested in Dom and her new boy. The stuff that Dom and Guy did was also more grown up, though I wished they would have gone on more dates.
They characters were still really good and I liked the development that Amy and Dom went through. You could see them growing as characters from the beginning of the book to the end, even if the book was short. Amy and Dom also developed in their friendship, which I thought was great.
Rating: 4/5 worms
Overall, Anatomy of a Single Girl is a great new adult book and I really enjoyed it!
