Anatomy of a Boyfriend by Daria Snadowsky

Summary:(from 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.

Review: I thought this was a pretty cute story. I didn't really have much expectation going into it but overall, I enjoyed it. The plot was well paced even though it was simple and fairly predictable. I thought Dominique and Wes were both really cool characters. Dominique was somewhat typical,but somehow she still had a unique voice and i liked getting to know her better. I also appreciated the fact that Wes was not a typical super hot bad boy/sports star. he seemed like just a regular guy. It made the story so much easier to relate to.  I wish they were a little bit more well rounded instead of constantly being focused on sexual things but it didn't really bother me that much. The one thing I didn't like is how graphic some of the scenes were. I understand what the author was trying to do but for me it was hard to read at some points.  Overall, this was a cute story and I recently discovered that there is a sequel to this book so I am interested to see how that plays out.
