With Judy Blume-like honesty and insight, this sequel to Anatomy of a Boyfriend is about life after first love--romance, sex, friendship, family, and the ups and downs of life as a single girl.

After everything that happened—my first boyfriend, my first time, my first breakup—jumping back into the dating game seemed like the least healthy thing I could do. It’s not that I didn’t want to fall in love again, since that’s about the best feeling ever. But as a busy college premed still raw from heartbreak, which is the worst feeling ever, I figured I’d lie low for a while. Of course, as soon as I stopped looking for someone, an impossibly amazing—and devastatingly cute—guy came along, and I learned that having a new boyfriend is the quickest way to recover from losing your old one. 

The moment we got together, all my preconceptions about romance and sex were turned upside down. I discovered physical and emotional firsts I never knew existed. I learned to let go of my past by living in the present. It was thrilling. It was hot. It was just what the doctor ordered.

But I couldn’t avoid my future forever. 

In Daria Snadowsky’s daring follow-up to Anatomy of a Boyfriend, eighteen-year-old Dominique explores the relationship between love and lust, and the friendships that see us through.




Sexy and entertaining as ever, this sequel to Anatomy of a Boyfriend reinforced my love and appreciation for authors like Snadowsky who aren't afraid to push the limits a little bit on the seemingly tight knit constraints of YA literature.

Once again I'm impressed by the way Snadowsky is able to present the fact that sex exists in a teenagers life,  without writing a book in the erotica genre. Her Anatomy novels revolve around the relationships and their development, as well as how those relationships affect the characters in the novel. Dominique is an entertaining main character and I loved watching her grow and learn more and more...

I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone who's read the first one, as well as anyone who enjoys books that are honest and aren't afraid of 'touchy' subjects.


Happy reading!
