This is the first work I’ve read from the author, Nyrae Dawn, and based on this book I would definitely give more of her work a read when it’s published.
The story follows 17 year-old Sebastian helping girls get guys in his role as the anonymous online Hook-Up Doctor. He charges them for his help so he can buy a car. Along the way realises he’s in love for the first time and the girl is his best friend. The only problem is he’s seen his mum have her heart broken countless times over the years and so he’s scared and confused about his feelings and what he should do with them, he figures it’s inevitable that he’ll either break the girl’s heart or she’ll break his.
I really liked Sebastian. He was cute, funny, loyal and very protective towards his mum and friends. I liked Jaden, Sebastian’s male best friend and I loved Pris and Aspen, two strong female characters and Sebastian’s other best friends.
It was really lovely to see how Sebastian dealt with this completely new emotion. He didn’t always get it right but he tried his best, the only way he thought there was, to put it right. Did it all work out in the end for him? You’ll have to read it and see!
If you’re looking for something that won’t take you ages to read then this book could be it. It took me an evening to read, though that could be to do with the fact that I was hooked and didn’t want to put it down!
