Review: What A Boy Wants

What A Boy Wants by Nyrae Dawn

published April 2012

Sebastian Hawkins is The Hook-up Doctor. Yes, you read that right! He has a great track record too, all his clients have been 100% hooked-up! He has lots of real world experience as he is a boy who likes to hook-up and he has seen first hand relationships and how they start and ultimately fail. He doesn't claim to find you a lasting relationship, but he can guarantee a hook-up :) So as we start What A Boy Wants, Sebastian is taking on a new client who is looking for a hook-up and since Sebastian is looking for some extra cash for his car fund, he takes on the client. Little does he know that this client will be like no other and his world is about to turn upside-down!

Let me just say Sebastian is a guy you will love to love! He is easy going, a true-blue friend. He is the guy who makes you laugh yet can be emotional and serious and very caring. He is a guys guys but also can take time to give his mama a hug. I think Sebastian is the boy we all would love to have as boyfriend or husband and later in life as a son. For all his great qualities, one thing Sebastian is that really defines him is his friends and his family. It is that strong loyalty that really is his downfall. He cannot see fault in his mom or his friends. He can only see their struggles and wants to be there to pick-up the pieces and make them happy and whole again. Sebastian is one of the best male protagonists I have read in a LONG time!

I love that all the secondary characters in this book are strong and relatable. The story itself moves along quickly and is resolved without dragging things out to torture the reader! I would love to go into the story and totally spoil this read for you but instead I will say it is a unique story told by a boy who has a first time experience that is not easy but learns something along the way and manages to find meaning and happiness in his life.

SIDE NOTE: I just want to comment on the cover. I think this cover brings Sebastian to life! Right down to the eyebrow piercing, IT IS SEBASTIAN! I love it when a character comes alive on the cover and when you are reading you look at it and just sigh because it is HIM! Great job on the cover!
