Anatomy of a Single Girl (Anatomy #2) by Daria Snadowsky (*)

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
Review
This is the second in the series, and i throughly enjoyed the first one, an honest look at the awkward romance that can be first loves, we see Doms feelings grow and change and ultimately shatter, i had high hopes for where the sequel would lead us, and whilst it did meet some of those hopes, it wasnt up there with the first book.
“I’ve been so caught up with mapping out a picture-perfect “forever” that I’m completely neglecting my present, which I have far more control over anyway.”
What we see is Dom trying out life as a single girl, what i expected was plenty of nights on the pull with her best mate, and lots of men coming into the book, in reality that wasnt what happened, it was more she instantly met someone who would help her but becomes her fixation for the summer. Whilst i did enjoy that to some extent, i did get a bit bored of the sex, there was lots of it, it was like obsessive, now i read smut like nobodys business, but it wasnt exciting, it was just there..alot of the time. However, i did enjoy the story, i enjoyed seeing her character changed and dealt with all the complex emotions she was undergoing, and that made me laugh, it felt nautral, and honest which is why i rated this book as so, it had its good points, and it had its bad points, but it was overall refreshing and honest!

Rating
Lady Grey - 3/5 middle of the road for me!
