It’s been an entire month since Shayler Thompson has orgasmed from something not made out of silicone. If her sour mood is any indication, she needs to get laid like yesterday. So when she walks up to a sexy nerd at the bar and propositions him, it seems like a great idea. Until he rejects her and calls her easy.
Still reeling from his hurtful words, Shayler is surprised to find that the nerd, David, is a Teacher Assistant for the one college class she’s totally embarrassing herself in. When he offers to help her study, she accepts, thinking that maybe she’ll get laid after all. But David isn’t into casual sex, and Shayler refuses any sort of commitment. With enough chemistry to light his dumb Prius on fire, she’s sure one of them will eventually give in… She just really hopes it won’t be her.

This was my first book by this author and I've got to say, I enjoyed it quite a bit! There were some things that annoyed me throughout the novel (some of which was because of the main character, Shayler) but for the most part, I found this to be a fun, quick, and *ahem* easy book to read!
So, lets get the not so fun parts out of the way, first. Shayler was a party girl. Every single night it seemed like, she was at the club or the bar, looking to get drunk and hook up with a random guy. Now that's all fine and dandy, but I found myself getting bored with reading about that over and over again. It may just be me, because that sort of life style just doesn't appeal to me. Whenever she wanted to do this (which was a lot), I found myself annoyed with her. Every decision she made just rubbed me the wrong way. She acted out terribly when things didn't go her way or when she felt backed into a corner and some of the things she did were absolutely horrifying. That being said, she was much better in the time that she was just hanging out with her friends or with David. When she settled down and wasn't going crazy at a club, she was a lot of fun to read about. Charming, funny, and energetic. I just wish we had seen more of that side of her in the beginning of the novel.
David was a great addition to the story! I love how sweet and caring he was and how patient. He and Shayler really did feel like friends before anything romantic began happening and I loved that. He was really helpful, too. I liked that he didn't play games and that he genuinely wanted to help Shayler with both her school and personal life. Overall, he was a really nice guy and a wonderful character to read about.
Shayler's group of friends was a blast, too. I loved the dynamic they had and I really enjoyed the fact that they made it a priority to hang out with each other as often as possible. I will say though, there was a lot of characters in this story and I found myself mixing them up constantly. I feel like that may be because I started this series on the second book rather than the first but, yeah, I had some name troubles while reading.
Overall, this was a quick and fun read. I had some issues with the main character but I liked seeing her development and her interactions with her friends and David.
