Biggest Flirts

Summer parties. Check! Senior year. Check! Band camp. Check! Hot new transfer? Check, Check! Okay, okay, so Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols is a fun and flirty read that is a perfect addition to your summer beach bag or backyard hammock this summer! A quick read with engaging flawed characters that grow into their own and will leave you feeling quite nice at the end!

Summary Courtesy of Goodreads:

Tia and Will’s lives get flipped upside down when they’re voted Yearbook’s Biggest Flirts in this sassy novel from the author of Endless Summer and The One That I Want.

Tia just wants to have fun. She’s worked hard to earn her reputation as the life of the party, and she’s ready for a carefree senior year of hanging out with friends and hooking up with cute boys. And her first order of business? New guy Will. She can’t get enough of his Midwestern accent and laidback swagger.

As the sparks start to fly, Will wants to get serious. Tia’s seen how caring too much has left her sisters heartbroken, and she isn’t interested in commitment. But pushing Will away drives him into the arms of another girl. Tia tells herself it’s no big deal…until the yearbook elections are announced. Getting voted Biggest Flirts with Will is, well, awkward. They may just be friends, but their chemistry is beginning to jeopardize Will’s new relationship—and causing Tia to reconsider her true feelings. What started as a lighthearted fling is about to get very complicated…

Let me start by saying, I have a super soft spot for anything nerdy. Bring on the band geeks, the academics, the overachievers and unrealized potential! Echols builds a beautiful setting for us that seems to very accurately paint the picture of Tia's Florida high school experience. Enter Will who you almost instantly cannot help but fall for with his innocent charm, caring ways and total HOTNESS! Can this boy keep his shirt on at all throughout the book? Well I guess not, but I'm also not complaining!

One of my favorite surprises in this novel was the fact that I was completely expecting a love triangle situations that I was pleased to see excluded in this instance! While I do love me a love triangle from time to time, it can be overdone and it was really refreshing for once...not that I wouldn't mind reading a book completely dedicated to Sawyer! Sawyer is probably one of my favorite characters in this book mainly because of his mystery and past and really, who doesn't love a bad boy?

The pace is quick and is filled with witty, sarcastic, teenage humor. An easy read to breeze through in a sitting and really take you back to the halls of high school.
