17-year-old Natalie doesnÃ¢??t go out much, but agrees to go along to a party with her best friend Brooke. Only to wake up the next morning in bed with BrookeÃ¢??s boyfriend Aiden.
Suffering from a blackout, and having no idea who she actually had sex with, she convinces herself that it wasnÃ¢??t Aiden, it was another boy who sheÃ¢??d kissed earlier in the night.
Things arenÃ¢??t right between Natalie and Aiden though, and she knows that sheÃ¢??s developing feelings for him, even though heÃ¢??s her best friendÃ¢??s boyfriend.
Who did Natalie have sex with? And if Brooke loves Aiden, why is she out trying to get attention from other boys?
This was an okay story, but it took a while to get interesting for me.
Natalie was an interesting character, but I was surprised at the way she just accepted a blackout, and didnÃ¢??t seem bothered about not knowing who sheÃ¢??d had sex with! I did like her point of view better than the parts that were from BrookeÃ¢??s point of view, but I didnÃ¢??t really love her. There wasnÃ¢??t really all that much flirting or anything between Natalie and Aiden, and although she obviously had a crush on her best friendÃ¢??s boyfriend, she was actually pretty good at not acting on it. For all that Natalie was worrying about the fact that she had feelings for Aiden, Brooke was out feeling up other blokes anyway, so to say anything about Aiden cheating on her was a bit hypocritical.
The storyline was okay, but it took me a while to really get into the story. The beginning of the book was just one big conversation/argument, and wasnÃ¢??t all that engaging really. I was also not impressed when the point of view switched from Natalie to Brooke, as I didnÃ¢??t really like Brooke, and wanted more of NatalieÃ¢??s story, which was left on a bit of a cliff-hanger.
There were some twists in the story, but they were pretty obvious to be honest, and I saw them coming a mile off. The romance bits were okay, but other than the odd line of dirty talk werenÃ¢??t exactly exciting. Considering the title there wasnÃ¢??t exactly much desperation or trying at all on NatalieÃ¢??s part to get Aiden to leave Brooke for her.
The ending was okay, and we did get a happy ever after, although IÃ¢??m not 100% how realistic it was. The ending was probably the best part of the book, just because I like seeing the poop hit the fan, but overall this was just okay for me.
Overall; okay story, but took a while to get going.
