Labelled a nerd for most of high school, Livi sees her first year of university as a chance to redefine herself. She can finally enter the popular crowd and maybe even land herself a super hot boyfriend. But Livi’s about to discover that the price of popularity may be more than she’s willing to pay, and that what — and who — she wants most has always been right in front of her.


My Review

The Trouble with Flirting ended up being a book that I enjoyed. I loved that it revolved around two best friends and the protagonist's freshman year of college. It was basically a coming-of-age story as Livi figures out who she'll be now that she's away from her and few no her from high school. She can be anyone she wants to be, but does that person need to be someone she's not or can she still be popular and get the guy of her dreams while being her nerdy self? 

The beginning of this book, I would say maybe the first half, I didn't really like. I didn't really like the direction Livi was going in, the choices she was making, and the way she was treating her best friend (who also happens to be a guy). I decide to just get through it as quickly as I could and then things started to get interesting. Livi figures some things out after an altercation with her supposed boyfriend while they're at a dance club. It's like all of sudden she saw a lot more clearly and realized that maybe sacrificing parts of herself weren't worth it. There are several twists after that and some very honest moments and it's this second part of the book that saved it for me.

It was nice to read a book in the NA genre that was about a lot more than just romance and that was on the cleaner side in this genre. I ended up liking Livi and her the friends that are there for her in the end. If you enjoy reading in this genre and can stick through the beginning of this one then I'd recommend giving this one a try. 

There was some language, mature subject matter, a guy pressuring a girl to go farther than she wanted, and some heavy making out.
SourceReceived through, which did not affect my review in any way.

Have you read this or do you plan to? Do you read New Adult? Have any recommendations on the cleaner side content-wise?

    Ooh, I'm so excited to read these two! I got An Uncertain Choice from Netgalley, and can't wait to dive into The Vow first!

  2. Hmmm. I don't have any problem at all reading stories and books with religion in them. However, I am not sure how I feel about this. It sounds interesting to me, but I am just not sure that I would like it. I really enjoyed reading your review!

  3. I haven't heard of this book by her. I don't know if it's the book for me, but I wouldn't mind reading her other books.

  4. This does look like am interesting series. I have found I like novella prequels, so I think I might try this one out.

  5. I don't read a lot of NA but I trust your judgment because I'm not so into the ones that are all about romance either. I'll put it on the list!
