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.

I started reading this book in the bookstore and the storyline is interesting, a little naughty without being raunchy - basically a fun fluffy read. When I got the audiobook I was shocked at how bad the narrator is. She is monotone, stiff and bored sounding throughout the first half of the book and the second half is only slightly better. I definately won't be looking for any other books narrated by Ms. Grafton.
I like to read VERY much .. I'm obsessed with reading I don't have time to actually read a book so I've been a listener for three years now
the relation between Bianca and wisely didn't convince me .. If I were the writer I would start by making the chasing between them more interesting instead of having a friends with benefits relationship
the ending was nice and predictable but it was a happy ending nonetheless
well , if she can improve her narration just a little I would be happy to try another of her narrations
no .. because this kind of movies I avoid most of the time
I hope the new books of this writer are better .. and I enjoyed this book because of wisely and his personality
I'd give it 3 stars for the audio version and 4.5 for the actual story. I felt like the narrator had almost a bit of a lisp. (Or maybe I've been saying Wesley wrong. I think wes-ly. She pronounced it wez-ly.) But the story is great!
