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.
Sebastian is not the guy you should fall in love with. He’s also not the guy who would notice you if you were just a normal chick like me. He only notices short skirts and long legs with the boobage that comes with it. He doesn’t do love, he does hook-ups. The only girls he loves are his best friends Aspen and Tris and together with his best mate Jaden they have been a group since forever.
But while he’s giving a girl advice as The Hook-Up Doctor, he starts falling for a girl. And deep, and he’s not sure if it’s a good thing.
“It was freaky how once you realized you loved someone, and they felt the same way about you, they could look different, yet the same; how they felt familiar, but not.”
Even though he wouldn’t give me a second look were we in the same school, I still like-love Sebastian. He’s a hottie, has an eyebrow piercing and don’t ask me why but I have a weakness for guys with eyebrow piercings. It is very hot. He also plays guitar, skateboards and would do anything to protect ‘his girls’ as he calls Aspen and Pris.
“I’ll be like your bodyguard or something. Me Tarzan. You Jane.”
What A Boy Wants is a really cute book. It’s funny he thinks he knows everything about girls and giving them advice on how to hook up with a guy. The book starts with the first e-mail of an anonymous girl who wants his help, Sebastian himself also being anonymous. Even though I had figured out very soon who the anonymous girl was he was giving advice to, way earlier than Sebastian himself did, I still liked reading it, because there was still a bit of a plot twist towards the end. I won’t say anything else to prevent from spoiling!
It’s also just really fun reading from Sebastian’s point of view. He might be a tough guy on the outside, but inside he’s just a softie. And I love him for it.
“Still I pulled her into a hug, because I knew she let me off the hook on purpose and yeah, I’m a guy and I love my mom. So shoot me. I’m man enough to hug her without feeling like a mama’s boy.”
“It was at that moment I wondered why girls ever needed me – The Hook-up Doctor, I mean. If they had all the power she had in those eyes, they could have anything they wanted.”
This book won’t blow your pants off, but it’s still a good read and I really enjoyed it! I read it in like two hours, all the time swooning over Sebastian. Or Bastian, as his friends call him. Heavens that’s cute.
“See, girls have it easy. Smile and bat your lashes and we’re defenseless.”
