Review: Anatomy of a Boyfriend (Anatomy #1) by Daria Snadowsky

Title: Anatomy of a Boyfriend (Anatomy #1)
Author: Daria Snadowsky
Published by: Ember/Random House Inc.
Released: 2007
Summary: Dominique Baylor experiences a year of firsts. From December of senior year to Thanksgiving as a college freshman she has her first love, first time, and first heartbreak. It's an emotional roller coaster for Dominique as she experiences all the joys and woes of first love.
My Thoughts: First off, I just want to thank the author, Daria Snadowsky, for sending me her books to review. I really thought Anatomy of a Boyfriend was a cute read with a lot of steamy scenes. Watching Dominique experience the highs and lows of her first real relationship was an insightful look into what it means to be a teenage girl in today's world. I would recommend it for slightly older teens due to the more graphic scenes.
The only real problem I had was with Dominique herself. I just kind of found her to be an annoying character who really rushed and forced a relationship with Wes. I think Dom fell in love too fast and too hard for a boy that liked her, but never really loved her. I also think Dom forced herself into all these awkward sex situations. Just because it is her first real relationship doesn't mean she has to do everything and anything sex wise, especially when she doesn't seem to really enjoy it. I also didn't like how Dom treated her parents or the irrational way she handled her breakup.
All in all, a cute story that explores the highs and lows of first love, first time, and first heartbreak. I'm interested to see how Dom's story continues in the sequel.
Dom, calm down.
