Simon Pulse, 2014
Audience: Older Teens
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…
This was a relatively light, teen-drama-filled romantic story. It wasn’t my favorite Jennifer Echols book, but I definitely enjoyed it. I especially liked the characters. Tia had a lot to work on in this book. She was definitely a strong character because she saw what she needed to change in her life. Even though it was difficult, she worked on it. It had a positive ending, and I’m happy to see that there’s a second book! I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store for the next senior couple.
