Summary from Goodreads:

“Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn’t think she’s the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her “the Duff,” she throws her Coke in his face. 

But things aren’t so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him.

Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out Wesley isn’t such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she’s falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone.”



Yay!! I love love love this book! Another book I finished in a day! Maybe 2 or 3 hours, I actually didn’t notice the time. I was waiting at the clinic, and I’m glad I have this book in my bag to kill the time. And I couldn’t stop reading it!!! What I liked about this book is its honesty and perfect portrayal of the high school reality nowadays. So watch out for a number of sex going on in this book even though it’s in a high school setting. Well, let’s admit it, that’s reality.

Would you hate me if I also love Wesley Rush even if he’s a man-whore? LOL! Yes, I love him! He’s a great guy within, and he also managed to change because of love. I don’t care about Bianca, she’s a little annoying sometimes because of her never ending insecurities in life. And yes, she’s a slut! I don’t want to elaborate about that, but she’s definitely funny, the only quality of her that I like. LOL! Well, I really like her two stunning best friends, Casey and Jessica, and I really want their own stories!

Anyway, I really enjoyed this book!!! Read it too, and I’m sure you’ll agree with me. 🙂

  1. I read this book a while ago and i totally agree ! It could easily be a real story and i liked it a lot. And i did read it in 4hours 🙂
    in short, it was a super good read !
    and a great review 😉

  2. Pretty much agree with your review completely, except for maybe I wouldn’t characterize Bianca as a slut. She’s not a virgin when she meets Wesley, but she hasn’t been jumping from boy to boy.
