SYNOPSIS: 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 up 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.
This book in a nutshell: "OMG CAN I PLEASE GET AN ARC OF THE SECOND BOOK"
This is a sweet and fun read that had me laughing, giggling, and crying all at the same time.
The story line nicely paced, it easily flows and the male POV sounded really authentic and believable. Come to think of it, Sebastian talks like me. I guess that's the reason why this was so easy for me to read and finish.
Our boy Sebastian Hawkins is a cocky, funny, sweet, protective. You can't help but love this book because of him. Nyrae doesn't neglect the other characters though, there's a lot of depth to them. You can easily relate to all of them. I think she set the pace for the second book really nicely.
What A Boy Wants had the perfect mix of a protagonist with a strong voice, interesting characters, real life situations, humor, sweetness, and a tang of sexy. Needless to say, I want more.
I promise that I will spare you from my fangirling because you might ask for a restraining order.
But umm. Just a little fangirl time? Please? Thanks!
SEBASTIAN LET ME LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!11111! <33333333333333
