Wanted: A Boyfriend Who Doesn’t Suck Review

WANTED: A BOYFRIEND WHO DOESN'T SUCK

Wanted: A Boyfriend Who Doesn’t Suck is about a teenaged girl named Natasha and her adventures with her high school love life. You can currently read this book on Wattpad, and this is a part of a romance novella series.

Natasha was a some-what relatable character. Sure, she could have had better choices in boyfriends, but she was a decent girl overall. She didn’t side with anyone who bullied people, she even stopped talking to one of her old friends because she was bullying someone. She had a side job helping little kids at a dance school, and all she wanted was a successful love life. This was where Chris came in.

So, on her first “date” with Chris, he leaves her to be with his friends. This should have been the end of this relationship in my opinion, but Natasha has convinced herself that Chris is perfect for her. They see each other off and on, Natasha continues to insert herself into his life at random intervals, but he just never shows a consistent interest in her. Then, she starts to learn more about him, and learns that he might like her more than he is letting on. Now, Natasha knows she can’t let him go.

This….just REALLY made no sense to me. If he had truly liked her, he would have said so from the beginning. Now she has just been annoyingly persistent enough that she is convincing herself of things that probably aren’t even there. If he has repeatedly ditched her for his friends, and has repeatedly hung out with other girls in front of her, what is making Natasha think that he likes her in the slightest? I just can’t comprehend why she won’t take no for an answer.

Other than the fact that the romance annoyed me a bit, I did enjoy this overall story. I hope that the future installments of this novella series will allow us to learn the truth about Chris and his life. But I definitely hope that Natasha gets over him soon, he doesn’t seem to be very worth it.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a semi-realistic YA romance novel.

I received a copy of this book and this is my voluntary review.

Overall Rating: 3 out of 5 books

  1. Thank you so much, Alex. Girl, wanna know the REALLY annoying thing? This was 100% TRUE. I was ridiculous. “Chris” was ridiculous. I am an extremely stubborn person and if I wanted something that bad, I wasn’t going down without a serious, grueling, long fight. Thank God I eventually grew out of that mentality when it came to relationships–especially with “bad boys.” Thank you again for hanging in there and being patient with my sixteen-seventeen-year-old self. Things get a lot better, but before they do…meet Dace.

  2. Maybe this book should be retitled as Wanted: A Girlfriend Who Stalks a Guy Who Is Clearly Not Interested…I’d read that book. I’ve known girls like this in real life. They’re amazing people, but their tastes in men baffle me. Why would you put effort into a relationship with a man who is clearly not interested? But I really enjoyed reading your review and look forward to reading your reviews of the sequels. Hopefully, Natasha finds an actually good boyfriend.
