Before this all happened, the closest I'd ever come to getting physical with a guy was playing the board game Operation. Okay, so maybe that sounds pathetic, but it's not like there were any guys at my high school who I cared to share more than three words with, let alone my body.

Then I met Wes, a track star senior from across town. Maybe it was his soulful blue eyes, or maybe my hormones just started raging. Either way, I was hooked. And after a while, he was too. I couldn't believe how intense my feelings became, or the fact that I was seeing—and touching—parts of the body I'd only read about in my Gray's Anatomy textbook. You could say Wes and I experienced a lot of firsts together that spring. It was scary. It was fun. It was love.

And then came the fall.

First please allow me to begin by thanking author Daria Snadowsky for my copies of Anatomy of a Boyfriend and Anatomy of a Single Girl (review coming soon). I now have another favorite author to add to my list. ;) 

Okay, this must be said before I continue with my review. Anatomy of a Boyfriend is NOT a YA novel...I know it comes across as one solely based on the book cover and description but no. NEW Adult is much more accurate. There are quite a few sex scenes which are described tastefully but in great detail. So with that said I will continue with my review. 

Dominique aka "Dom" is a senior in High School soon to graduate with honors and move on to college with hopes of becoming a doctor. Dom wants nothing more than to becoming a doctor to help and heal people for a living. This has been a dream of hers since she was a little girl playing the game operation with her Dad. 

While attending a HS football game with her friend Amy, Dom trips and falls down flat on her face. Embarrassed much? A boy comes to her rescue named Wesley. Wesley goes to another school, the same school her friend Amy attends. After their chance meeting, Amy helps Dom track down information about Wesley and ends up finding his  e-mail. Dom and Wesley begin e-mailing back and forth but soon decide to meet. Both have little experience with dating and romance since both Dom and Wesley really have never "really" dated before. They both experience their first real kiss together. Their first time making out and more so falling in love. Dom without a doubt knows that she is head over heals in love with Wesley and decides it's time to take the next step in their relationship. SEX!  Both Dom and Wesley are both virgins and know very little about what their doing. Of course, practice makes perfect. 

As their romance and love grows; "something" happens to make everything change. An event that will either make or break Dom and Wesley's love forever....

Of course I am not going to tell you what. To find out read the book...

This was me after reading this book. I was all like, "WHAT DID I JUST READ?"

Anatomy of a Boyfriend was by far one of the best books I have ever read. I am SO NOT kidding. I was totally floored by pretty much everything going on in the story. The romance between Dom and Wesley was so raw and beautiful. So simple and sweet. Daria Snadowsky took her time developing the relationship between the characters. Dom is a totally relatable character and by far gives the book so much depth and feeling. She is funny, witty and down right awesome! With Wesley, I was in a love-hate relationship with his character. Of course by the ending you will understand why. 

I want to briefly talk about the "sex" in the book and why I feel there is no way this book should be shelved in the YA fiction. The love making or sex scenes were simply amazing to say the least. The author somehow was able to not only make these scenes super hot but tasteful as well. Dom and Wesley were both new to the act of sex and at times had no clue what they were doing. As their relationship grew and evolved I felt like I was there along side Dom seeing everything through her eyes. 

Author Daria Snadowsky has easily become of my new favorite authors. Her writing style is flawless; almost lyrical.  Anatomy of a Boyfriend is a fast-paced, cute, funny, daring and charming read. A MUST read!

Totally EPIC! One of the best books I have read. A MUST read!!
