Jonah Beckett has been in love with his older brother’s best friend, Laurie, since he was thirteen-years-old. When his boyfriend, Dirk, breaks up with him for refusing to put out, Jonah uses his heartbreak over the situation as an excuse to ask Laurie to teach him all about sex before he starts college in the fall. Problem is, he made Dirk up, and Jonah has no idea what will happen when Laurie finally finds out the truth.
I have to admit that I wasn’t sure at first, but Wanting turned out to be kind of a sweet little romance.
I really liked Jonah. Even though he went about getting Laurie’s attention in a round about way that could have easily back fired, I had to admire the determination that led to his creative tactic.
Laurie was perfect. He was patient and understanding and I fell in love with him as soon as he was introduced.
It wasn’t just Jonah and Laurie that I fell in love with in Wanting. The supporting characters were great. It was refreshing to have low level family drama that only involved family members wanting what was best for each other. Jonah’s grandparents were adorable and I loved the protectiveness Marc had toward his younger brother. The family dynamic just added to the sweetness. 😉
This was my second Piper Vaughn read and Last First Kiss was a sweet one too. I’m definitely going to have to check out the rest of her books.
