Review by: Nahomi
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 laid-back 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…

3.5 stars out of 5 stars

      Biggest Flirts is a fun summer read! This is a great book to take to the beach or park to read. Although there are some heavy issues that are being dealt with by the main characters; Will's and Tia's flirting and easy banter keeps the reading light and interesting.

The beginning of this book was a little difficult for me to get through because I found Tia's attitude and self-destructive behavior a little annoying. I get where she is coming from, but I found myself feeling frustrated with her anyways. Another thing that was a turn off for me was how convoluted the relationship between Will and Angelica and Tia was in the beginning. I don't like to give spoilers so I won't go into detail but I had to mention that I really didn't like that dynamic at the beginning of the story.

 After reading through the first part of the book I found myself really interested in Tia and Will's relationship and how their characters developed. Tia is a really intelligent girl, the type that doesn't try to be smart but just is. She tries really hard to be an under achiever and to come off as aloof and uncaring. Will is the new guy that comes off as a bad boy but really isn't. Will is sweet, caring, and good looking. The combination of brown hair and blue eyes is always a turn on for me. Together they balance each other out and have great chemistry.

 This is the type of book that I could typically finish in a sitting. The pacing was quick and it seemed like in a blink of an eye I was done with the book. I left wishing it were a little longer so I could see what happens next with Tia and Will. After finishing this book I was left feeling happy and satisfied. Like I said before this book is a great summer read.

  1. This book does look really cute, but what is with contemporary books now being series instead of stand-alones?? I don't know if I can take more series. Great review, glad you enjoyed it! ~Pam
