Sebastian is without wheels - the kind on a car that is. In need of money to find some, he goes with what he's good at which is hooking up. Becoming the Hook-Up Doctor is the perfect way to score some cash. He has a 100% track record. It's all anonymous. He can tell the girls what to do to get the boy they want cause he knows what a boy wants. No long term guarantees though. He's perfected the art of hooking up with no relationship ties. His mother has shown him that those don't ever end well. There is one little problem though. He may be falling in love for the first time in his life and hook-up may not be enough anymore. But relationships aren't his thing and that won't ever change - will it?
5 stars - LOVE this book
You many of noticed the male POV thing I have going lately. This book is from Sebastian, or Bastian's POV and I so loved that. What was better was that his male voice was authentic. He sounded male, acted male and was confused when things went wrong male! I have a thing for the dark hair, dark eyes he has going on and he seems to know that the girls go for him. Totally real. I loved how he talked to girls about how being confident was hot. It was for him. But he had some lessons to learn, which were so much fun to watch.
One lesson he had down already was how to treat his mom. She had been through more than her fair share of relationship problems and he was there for her every time. Says a lot of a teenage boy to be supportive and I loved that about him. I saw some of my son in him. My son has been there for me through a different kind of trial but with just as much love. Maybe that was one of the things that drew me to Bastian so much. He has the same dark hair and eyes as my son too.
The other characters in this book are just as awesome. A group of four friends that have been there for each other for years. Love that. We meet Jaden - a favorite name of mine - and I hear he has his own book coming up next. Can't wait for that.
The story is fun and fabulous. Some things I figured out but there where a couple twists that surprised me. Love that. I read this fast really not wanting to put it down at all. If you even like YA contemporary a little, then you should SO pick this one up and soon. It's only $.99 on Kindle and Nook. Seriously peeps, it's a great read.
Got my boy Bastian set-up for an interview coming very soon. Cannot wait for that!
