No one but Joe overheard the little episode, and he probably found the whole thing hysterical. You can't have sex with a man 65 times and then just tell him he's cut off for no good reason - oh, but you're still dating and you're still an exclusive couple. He noticed this and looked away quickly, before I could say anything.
Totally understandable. I've been there. But instead of losing herself in a good book, movie or yogalates, she loses herself in the bed of Wesley Rush, resident man-whore.
The guy she hates with the intensity of a thousand suns. Oh, it gets better. He lovingly nicknames her 'Duffy'. That's right, as in The Duff. And Bianca has a bevy of insults to hurl at Wesley whenever it pleases her. Neither of them them pretend their relationship is based on anything other then sex. Call it what you will: I could go on. Regardless of the label, this is where the author starts to lose me.
I hope I'm not coming across as 'holier then thou', because, seriously it's not like I was an angel when I was a teenager. I had a wild streak back then, I made mistakes. Lots of them. It's just my mistakes involved less sex. Okay, sex was never involved. Neither was nudity. But I kissed read: Sometimes with the sole intention of getting my mind off my problems. So really, I understand Bianca's motives. I even understand how in a twisted way she felt pretty, more desirable afterward. She's with him as much as five times a week.
Not that I'm a sexpert see what I did there? I combined sex and expert. Especially considering how cheap and dirty Bianca claims to feel afterward. While reading this novel I was all, "Stop it. Stop having sex with the guy you hate. Just STOP! Go talk to your friends or a counselor. You need help. It wouldn't have been so bad had she felt more guilty or ashamed afterward.
And I could understand her need had it been described as some sort of an addiction. Or perhaps the author could have described Bianca's home life much worse, making her incessant need to escape that much more plausible. But yeah, my point is: I just couldn't relate.
Not entirely. And so this story fell apart for me. Okay, that's a lie. It didn't fall apart--the story was still in one piece when I finished this book, but just barely.
The only real redeeming thing about The Duff is the conclusion Bianca comes to near the end of the novel, about what it means to be a Duff. And she realizes how stupid she and Wesley were by having so much sex, regardless of how much protection they used for the record: And though it pains me to do so, I'll admit that I'm sappy enough to like how this book ended.
It wraps up so neatly with a giant bow on top, Pretty Woman style. Three stars but just barely, and if I were I being totally fair I'd have to give it just two stars waaaaaaaaay too much swearing going on in this book. It's completely out of control. But I liked this book, despite all it's faults, so yeah, three stars.

Thumbs up for that. Find more of my books on Instagram View all 6 comments. View all 5 comments. I adore you Wesley Rush!!!! That skin-crawly thing happened, and I knew exactly who was behind me. Just fucking great. Aaaahhhh this book. This book made me so unbelievably happy, it's unreal. I was completely and utterly obsessed from the minute I picked it up until the moment I put it down.
I grumbled when I had to go to sleep and I tossed and turned for what felt like an eternity, struggling internally to keep my head on the pillow and not roll over to pick my Ipad up again.
It's not that it was deep or heartfelt or altogether meaningful, I suppose, but the author created this wonderfully cliched world that I felt myself instantly addicted and drawn to, and these characters embedded themselves deep into my heart where I didn't ever want to let them go. It didn't need to be anything other than what it was-fun.
So what was the problem? I didn't Get the fuck out of here. God, why are you stalking me? I thought Wesley Rush didn't chase girls. I thought they chased him, right? I know, I know, total case of judging the book by it's horrendous cover, but come on, Guys-look at it! I saw the mixed reviews, I heard the movie was better, I found it was full of cliches, and All negative, if you ask me.
I know, I'm a total bitch, right? But there were so many alarming red flags that had me so nervous when I picked this one up. And, I'll admit it, I totally had my nose turned up like a snooty Who from Whoville when I began reading. I was all 'Hmm.
That happened quickly' and 'Oh, well she's a bitch' or 'Hmm. I don't like that they hang out here. Each page that passed I felt myself sinking deeper and deeper until I eventually was so wrapped around this book's pretty little finger that I couldn't see straight. And you know what?? It's never felt so good to be wrong. I was fully conscious of Wesley's hand as it slid up my torso and moved to cup my breast. With an effort, I pushed him away from me.
His eyes were wide as he leaned back. The inner workings of her mind were so funny, albeit very opinionated. She definitely had a venomous bite, but I never felt put off by her harsh judgements or crude rationalizations.
Her reasons to start hanging with Wesley were wrong from the beginning, but she never once forgot that fact. Hiding it from her friends, attempting to escape reality, and scrutenizing others that were basically doing the same thing as her, she was in no position to judge And that's where I think a lot of people might have had a problem with her-but I didn't.
I dunno. I thought that was kind of realistic. I pull a 'pot calling the kettle black' frequently when it concerns myself and other people, no matter how nice I am or how much I like people-it's human nature to be a wee bit judgemental, and I can't say I'm not No, I think my only problem with this whole story was how she continually put herself down.
She repeatedly called herself the Duff and questioned why anyone liked her, why Wesley would possibly waste his time with her. It was a very noticeable thing throughout the story, but thankfully I loved her and Wesley so much it just didn't matter-but I can see how this could possibly annoy others.
I jerked out from under Wesley's hand and spun to face him, gripping my pencil like a dart and aiming it right at his Adam's apple. He didn't even flinch. His gray eyes examined the pencil with feigned curiosity and he said, "Interesting.
Is this how you greet all the boys you like?
I Can. How much I loved him. He was cocky. He was arrogant. He was quirky. He was sexy. He gave me butterflies that I continually choked on But that's besides the point!! I'd had a couple glasses of wine I mean, we meet him THAT early?? I hate when that happens. But OMG, my fears were squelched when he not so subtlety inserted himself in her life every single day. I found myself laughing out loud so much when he was around that my smile became permanent.
My heart broke the more we found out about him. My heart soared when he defended her. And my smile was depraved when he got jealous. But, mostly, there were butterflies.
Endless butterflies. This book, to me, was unputdownable. I read it at work. I thought about it when I wasn't reading it. I lost many hours of sleep over it. And I stayed up until almost one on a work night without even realizing it until I looked up and saw what programming was on tv-randomly, I might add. So, to say I didn't love this would be false. I adored it.
I cherished it. I'm guna go buy the movie version book for my bookshelf I'm sorry, I can't do that fugly cover. I, my friends, am still obsessed. I cannot wait until I can read it again. Cute, funny, heart-warming, and addicting beyond all measure. This young author wrote my dream book for this moment in my life-I will never be so judgemental again Lies.
All lies. But, that would circle the point I'm trying to make-oops before I really know what I'm talking about. I won't judge a book by it's cover.
And I will try not to be biased. Just like Bianca. No matter where you go or what you do to distract yourself, reality catches up with you eventually. For more of my reviews, please visit: View all 50 comments.
Jun 20, Steph Sinclair rated it really liked it Recommended to Steph by: Hannah The Irish Banana Review. View all 14 comments. Sorry, but how can a supposedly intelligent person be so dumb and so clueless? The only explanation I can think of: Someone gave her very bad advice. Now she sent the divorce papers and my father is devastated. You should totally change your opinion about her behaviour the second you see her again and support all her decisions.
When he touches me, I feel dirty afterwards, but it also makes me feel so much better. Is that normal? Not weird at all. My father really is drinking a lot and last night, he hit me and called me a whore. A friend rescued me and I spent the night at his house. Your father will come to his senses, go to AA meetings from now on, never drink again and everything will be alright between the two of you. I am also neglecting my friends over this guy I mentioned before. Actually, my best friend is already suspicious and angry at me for not talking to her anymore.
Maybe I should date him instead? Also, a book without a love triangle is a bad book. There have to be two guys in your life. Obviously, this review is to be taken with a grain of salt. Therefore, I was really disappointed at the outcome. I think this is one of those books you either hate or love.
I have not managed to find any indications on what makes you love it or hate it, though.
But I think if you can sympathize with Bianca this could turn out to be a great read for you. If you want to read this book, give it a try and see for yourself if it is for you or not. It is really hard to give a recommendation here because it is almost impossible to draw the line - when will a character annoy you and when will you like him despite his faults.

Like seriously, I kind of can't believe how much I loved a book that literally means "ugly fat friend". Over the years I've seen this book in passing, in the library, bookstores, and lists titled "Best Book Boyfriends".
I never picked it up because come on. Look at the title. Now look at the cover. Based on those two things, would you 4. Based on those two things, would you read it? Well this is an extreme case of don't judge a book by its cover Bianca is a cynical girl, but her friends don't mind it.
They love her for who she is. One night when all three are out, Bianca finds herself near the school manwhore Wesley, who proceeds to educate her on the fact that she is the Duff. This title makes Bianca's head spin, and she goes into a small identity crisis.
On top of that, things aren't so good with her parents and her life around her is falling apart. Assigned to work on a project together, Bianca and Wesley end up having a secret friends with benefits relationship, both trying to escape their crappy real lives.
As I stated before, I loved this book. Because it surprised me. Bianca was a character I loved so much. She was ridiculously cynical, and I guess maybe I am too because most of the time when she would say something, I'd be sitting there nodding my head and going "hey, I would say that!
For example: I bet you more people contract syphilis on Valentine's Day than on any other day of the year. What a cause for celebration. Get over it, Jess. You have one. You can call it what it is. Bianca's parents were going through a divorce and her dad was becoming less and less present, and she didn't know how to deal with it.
Bianca's former asshole of an ex-boyfriend shows up in town with his new fiance. Wesley's parents are always gone and his crone of a grandmother won't let him see his sister. Lots of teen drama rama. The other things that surprised me about this book? There was so much sex! Like from the beginning.
Would you look at this hot pink and yellow cover and think you were in for a large round of young adult fade to black? Not me! It was kind of refreshing to read a teen book and have it be realistic about what teens are experiencing in real life. And Wesley. Like, he was such a freaking jerk in the beginning, but like Bianca, the more I saw him in the book I couldn't help but swoon over his arrogant ass.
I agree with the list, he's a great book boyfriend.
I'm the same way. But, I encourage you to ignore the title and cover, and to read this gem of a book. That or go and see the movie when it comes out this February. Hopefully it doesn't suck. View all 79 comments. This book. Another soul-mate book. This book is deep and thought provoking.
Bianca, the DUFF, is not your regular 'misfit' or protagonist. She's cynic,smart,protective,loving. And her friends though they are pretty, are not dumb blondes as the trailer suggests. They are pretty amazing people. Casey and Jessica are two brilliant friends. Wesley is NOT how he's presented in the trailer either.
In book,he has d This book. In book,he has depth,a background that made him the way he is. Actually noone did. Shocking,i know. Wesley and Bianca are OTP. This book does not fit any line or category. Its not predictable. It keeps you guessing. The ending made me think a few things over in my life.
Its the kind of book that changes you. Its good. Rainbow Rowell book,good. In the movie trailer,i noticed a lack of curls in Wesley's head. Where are the curls? I demand black curls!!! View all 15 comments.
I really enjoyed this story.
What is a Duff? Hell, many of us notice them all the time. Well, when known manwhore, Wesley informs Bianca that she is in fact the Duff of her group, she is left spinning. This revelation comes at the same time Bianca's home life is taking a nosedive. So, guess where she ends up taking refuge But Wesley isn't as bad as he seems, and of course, things blossom, as they typically do.
And at times we all feel like the Duff. I enjoyed it.

Angry and HURT. I didn't get it. People will tell you all sorts of things about this novel. But you come here to hear the truth, right? Someone who just does not grasp human relationships and interactions. She's an idiot. Bianca, the MC in this novel, is like Julia Stiles was in that movie. Except brainless.
Bitter, cynical, and lashing out an anyone and everyone she can. Mainly because view spoiler [she lost her virginity to her best friend's older brother when she was Their relationship was a total secret. But she didn't know it was a secret because he really had a serious, long-term girlfriend.
Bianca was "the other woman" and she didn't even notice. No wonder he never took her on dates and was so secretive about her. Also, did I mention he was 18 and she was 14? They date for 3 months before his girlfriend corners Bianca and tells her to back off. But her two sweet, beautiful best friends Casey and Jessica adore her anyway.
One night, while at the non-alcohol, under club that her friends insist on dragging her to all the time, a hot guy in her class named Wesley approaches her. He informs her that her two best friends are gorgeous, and that he is winning points by being seen talking to her, the DUFF.
When she asks him what that is, he tells her that it means Designated Ugly Fat Friend. She promptly spills her Cherry Coke all over his head. But in case you think that this is a little girly teenage novel with problems that consist of this kind of thing, you quickly are corrected.
Bianca's mom hasn't been home in a long time. And her dad is fighting frequently with her on the phone. Her father, who has been sober for 18 years, is having a hard time dealing with the fact that his wife might never be coming home. Bianca has a hard time coping with this drama. Not to mention the fact that she finds out her evil ex is coming back into town.
She needs something to dull her pain and empty her mind. Something male This book was completely confusing to me. For one thing, Bianca is a complete moron who had me seriously wonder if she had been dropped on her head as an infant. Here are some newsflashes for you: If you ignore your friends, refuse to see them, and won't take their calls Sounds obvious, right? Not to Bianca. If you are having sex on the regular with a man, let's say times a week, and are spending a lot of time with him, and then suddenly break it off for no apparent reason, he might be hurt and worried.
If every time a man sees you, he has a huge erection, tries to get you naked, and fucks you into next Saturday No, really, it's true. Those are signs that a man might actually think you are sexy. I know. It's a crazy concept. Certainly Bianca doesn't understand it. Now you know the levels of stupidity I'm dealing with.
There are other things that confused me.
For one thing, it's often talked about malicious cheerleaders who keep ugly or shy freshman girls as "pets," basically ordering them to do menial tasks and verbally abusing them.
I have never seen this in real life. Were the cheerleaders pretty? Were they more 'popular' than other students?
Were they ever total verbally abusive jerks to some poor underclassman girl who was sad and lonely? Um, NO. Emphatically not. Actually, in my experience, the popular kids didn't really pay much attention to anyone not in their crowd.
I'm baffled by this prevalent media portrayal of evil, abusive cheerleaders who make other kids' lives hell. One, you can easily get kicked off the squad for that shit. Keplinger seems to embrace caricatures and stereotypes. The jocks, the cheerleaders, the debate team, the band geeks, whatever insert stereotype here.
I never really found high school to be divided up that easily. And is super-confident about having sex. I'm pretty sure that even in , the majority of high schoolers have either a. College is a different story, but high school? It was pretty rare to even have two or three sexual partners in high school, much less the 50 or so we're supposed to believe Wesley is pulling.
In high school? Are you kidding me? You live with your parents and a lot of people don't even have their own car. And have you ever seen or talked to high school kids? High school boys? They are far from the swaggering, confident, sexually powerful teens in this book. And most adults don't possess the sexual confidence and absolute surety that Wesley possesses. He never doubts himself, seems awkward, second-guesses himself, needs reassurance in bed, or expresses any kind of weakness of any kind.
Which is complete bullshit. 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.

Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper may not be the prettiest girl in her high school, but she has a loyal group of friends, a biting wit, and a spot-on BS detector.
She's also way too smart to fall for the charms of man- slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush, who calls Bianca the Duff--the Designated Ugly Fat Friend--of her crew.
But things aren't so great at home and Bianca, desperate for a distraction, ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it.
