Review: Anatomy of a Boyfriend by Daria Snadowsky

Review: Anatomy of a Boyfriend by Daria Snadowsky

ANATOMY OF A BOYFRIEND is a sometimes funny, sometimes painful, and always honest look at seventeen-year-old model student Dominique’s first relationship. When she meets track-star Wes, her life changes. Suddenly, she’s falling head-over-heels in love, and it’s scary. Scary and wonderful and everything else in Dominique’s range of emotions.

Rather than being the magical, unrealistic love story so often told, Dom and Wes’s relationship is real. Amazing, yes, but not without its awkward moments--and Daria Snadowsky tells the whole story, awkward moments and all.

ANATOMY OF A BOYFRIEND is an honest, straightforward look at sex and relationships, and the story is certainly populated by good characters, but sometimes it’s less than compelling. Perhaps this is because that’s all it’s about. It’s a story of first love, not a story in which a character first falls in love. Maybe a little more is needed to make an entirely captivating novel, but this one is still well worth reading.

Rating: 8.5/10

This book was AMAZING! It evoked emotions that I didn't know a book can do. I literally bawled at the end, I hope she writes more books! I would buy them!

i will admit i never ever read books but as soon as i began reading this book i couldn't keep my nose out of it. It seemed so realistic i could connect to this book so well. And i've read it twice now and i cry every time when Wesley breaks up with Dom :( but this is the BEST book i have ever read. I really hope she writes more books like this i will soo read them.
