The past year has been hell on Savannah. Not only did her boyfriend dump her on the side of the road - literally - but her best friend, Wes, decided to graduate early. The person he becomes in college is more confusing. No matter what she tells herself, she can't get over the thought of another girl having a piece of him that she'll never have.
Wes has been in love with Savannah since childhood. Trouble is she's never seen him as anything more than a friend. He's never been brave enough to push those boundaries. He views college as an opportunity to finally move on. However, their continued close relationship makes moving on difficult, especially since Savannah has no idea she broke his heart.
With her own graduation day approaching, Savannah decides she doesn't want to be a virgin when she gets to college. Turning to Wes to solve this problem seems sensible. After all, she trusts him more than anyone. Only she isn't prepared for what her request unleashes - either from him or in herself.

I LOVE listening to what my alterego's make believe life could be like! ;-D Plus I LOVE the idea that these 'stories' are actually REAL! :-)
But....Re the English accent.... Wes's accent was GREAT - MUCH (+++) better than THORN's!!
The English accent was ALMOST as bad as The Highlander's Scottish accented was!
As a Scottish person who lived in 7 different regions if England (& 1 Welsh), that at was my ONLY constructive criticism!!
"Cute Teeny-Bopper Romance"
Considering the relatively short length of the book, I think listening to this story was time well spent. The meaty material at the end was satisfying but the build up to that point was a bit tedious, insipid even in the pacing. The book, overall, reminded me of something I'd have lapped up at 13 or 14 years old. Maybe even 15. Too bad I'm twice that age now. I kind of wanted something more intense. Something deeper to the story. To end on a positive note, the oral-scenes were super hot. Best part of the book. Had dreams that night. Great dreams. TY author!
I would not have told the story using third person narration. I found it pretty distracting.
I have not listening to his other narrations before.
This story (and variations with much the same set-up) has been done so many times in Hollywood, I don't see a unique reason to adapt this particular retelling. If I did, it would star Dakota Fanning & Eddie Redmayne.
I quite enjoyed the author's interview at the end.
