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.
Anatomy of a Single Girl is a follow up to Daria Snadowsky first novel, Anatomy of a Boyfriend. (You can read my review here.) It could be read without previous book, but my recommendation would be to read them both. That way you will not have that nagging felling like something is missing and you are the only one who doesn't get the joke.
I have to admit that I liked second novel much more than the first one. It got my attention from the first line: "The logical thing would be for me to date Calvin Brandon." Anatomy of a Single Girl is not predictable type of story. I did have some expectations when it comes to the plot after I finished reading first book, but I was wrong. So wrong. For starters, this is real new adult story with lot of explicit scenes, but, again, it is not like any new adult novel I've read so far. Story, characters, ending... Everything is different.
I wasn't Dominique's biggest fan so far, but here... Oh, boy. This girl just became my hero. You know which type of girls I like. Strong, smart, girl who tells you exactly what she thinks and wants and doesn't feel urge to apologize for that. I always hated that saying, but it fits perfectly, she found her roar. She grow up and realized that life isn't perfect. Love isn't perfect. I know that most of the readers didn't like whole sexual health theme, but I found it as one of the most positive messages for all of the young girls who will read this book. Think with your head and not your hormones.
I will read everything Daria Snadowsky writes. That is my final impression of this amazing woman. As for you, pick up this book and see where it will take you.
Until next time,
