I adored this book. It was sweet, emotional, and just amazing.
The story put simply was about a boy who falls for his best friend. I think any other description would give too much away so that is all I am going to say. Believe me though the characters are anything but simple and I promise you will find yourself routing for Sebastian and Aspen.
Sebastian and Aspen were awesome. I loved having this book told from his point of view. It is so refreshing to read a book where the guy falls for the girl and we get to see how his feelings unravel. Sebastian was hilarious especially when he finally realizes his feelings. It was a brilliant moment. Aspen definitely held her own as well. I am so glad that she made Sebastian own up to his faults. She was a all or nothing kinda girl and that is exactly what this story needed.
The author has a great way with words. Like I said Sebastian as hilarious and his conversations with his friend Jayden were exactly how you would think two high school guys would joke around and talk. I really enjoyed their moments together and I have to admit that my heart broke for Jayden and I cannot wait to get my hands on his book. I had no idea there would be a sequel until a few minutes ago and I am so so happy!
Overall this was a very fun read and I think fans of Young Adult contemporary will like this one very much. There is also an underlining plot that I think makes the story even stronger that I think fans will appreciate too. It is between Sebastian and his mom and it just makes me love him even more! Pick this one up people you won’t regret it!
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 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.
