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 ...
If you've read my Goodreads review, you already know this book was a little ... spicy for me at some points. Don't get me wrong, I knew what I was walking into when I started reading it (Exhibit A: the title) but I wasn't expecting it to get real hot real fast.
Although I loved the witty banter tossed between Tia and Will, I would have loved to see more development of the characters that Jennifer Echols introduced. I felt like there could have been more written about Tia's best friends, her dad, her sisters, etc. and her relationships with them but they were all kinda ... just there. There wasn't anything about them that stood out to me, which left me feeling indifferent about them.
Not only that, but there were also a lot of questions left unexplained.
It may seem like I didn't enjoy the book, but I did — it's one of those books you'll want to read in one sitting (and that I did do.) Tia and Will had a lot of flaws, but that's how people are in real life. If you're looking something fun and drama-filled, you'll probably like Biggest Flirts.
