Not the young adult you read everyday. Jennifer Echols was always, at least for me, one of those authors that tries to push boundaries of the genre. Even before the term "new adult" became popular or anyone talked about meaning of it, she was one of the few people writing about a bit daring topics for young adult. Biggest Flirts was everything I expected it would be.

Shocking beginning, Tia and Will. The way this book started... I understand now why few of my friends were surprised, but unlike t

I just...I can't. Me and Tia? Hate at the first sigh. And that is a bad sign, especially when she is a main character.

I have a huge TBR pile and I don't have enough time to read meh books.
I didn't like it, that's all. Maybe I'm getting too old for this kind of books. But then again, I read fantastic young adult dystopian novel a couple of days ago so maybe that's not the problem.
I guess
I’ve had a really up and down relationship with Jennifer Echols books, but after devouring Biggest Flirts, I can safely say that this is my favourite Echols story yet. Echols brings a delightful, but also easy to relate to character in Tia, she’s quirky, fun, but also like everyone else has a lot of self doubts, because of this she doesn’t really do things to her full potential, she gives up on purpose such as trying for drum captain and on her school test. But when new boy Will turns up, Tia’s ...more

Despite only having read from Jennifer Echols once in the past, I did enjoy her writing and was eager to read more of her works. Then when I saw the absolutely adorable cover for Biggest Flirts and fell for the fluffy-sounding synopsis, of course I had to read it next.

Our heroine is Tia, and she's a girl you'll either love or hate. She's a bit of a wild girl and isn't afraid to admit that she enjoys fooling around with boys. Personally, I thought her character was really unique--a lot of the he

Maybe 1.5

Sad to say, I've had a few hit and miss with Jennifer Echols books. And this is definitely a miss.

Sometimes it's hard to enjoy a book, even the writing is nice when you want to do some harm on the main character. That was what happened to me when I was reading this book. I really, really, didn't like Tia. I couldn't stand her from the very beginning. Me and her kind of character are not meant to be together. Yes, she had a good sense of humor, but

Rate: 4 stars


I am a big fan of Jennifer Echols' books and I have been dying to start the Superlatives series for a while now. Knowing Jennifer's stories I knew I would love this new series, but


What docked this down to a three was the constant fights between Tia and Will. They would make up and agree that they were "friends" only to get in a fight again leaving them both irritated with each other. It was a cycle. I hated how they defined their relationship as "just friends" (at Tia's request) however despite claiming she wanted to remain unattached, Tia always felt jealous of Will's relationship with Angelica when she had no right to in the first place. If she really wanted

Full review closer to pub date. For now, I will say that I adore Jenn and her writing. Tia and Will are a couple with a lot of problems that could be fixed quite easily, but in high school, nothing is ever easy. This read like a story out of my own life so I found I could relate very well. I mean, the images of the hot mornings and long nights of band camp brought to life my own very vivid memories of the event. I also remember having that guy friend with whom I couldn't stop flirting, even when ...more
I honestly had an “I’m too old for this shit” moment while reading this, but being the anal-retentive-must-finish-this-book reader that I have become, I saw this one through and I’ve come away with this: this was supposed to be sweet and cute, except there's the way things begin: too convoluted.

The beginning in this one is meant to elicit an “aaw-shucks” romantic moment but given the convoluted way things progressed, the latter took away from said “aaw shucks” and transformed it into a “WTF?” on

What were these characters? I was a teenager not so long ago and I can't remember anyone I knew behaving this way. Not even the most promiscuous ones.

I had so much secondhand embarrassment for Jennifer Echols. I loved her ever since I first read Going Too Far. I can't believe she would write something like this.

Hope for improvement is the only reason I'm not rating it lower. Maybe the other two upcoming books will be better. Maybe...
I usually enjoy *very much* Echols' books. This one did not do the trick. I expected more out of this story; I wished all the problems/flaws ailing the main characters would have been delved into more...

I received Biggest Flirts in return for an honest review from the publisher via Edelweiss. Tia has no intentions of finding a boyfriend after watching her sister’s terrible relationships she’s going to steer clear. One night at a party her friends send a boy to her who she assumes is for one of her one night hookups only to find out the next day that the new guy is a drummer like her. Even though they never did hook up they have this connection that leaves them both drawn to each other building ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book! It’s very refreshing and a really light read! Well, kinda… There were some scenes that made me raise my eyebrows.

Tia Cruz, is very enjoyable character to explore. I like her character because she’s unlike other characters in YA novels. She’s wilder and bolder than the usual female MC’s but she’s got her reasons for it. Will Matthews, I can’t begin to describe how he made me feel. I”m definitely not swooning over him, but I’m not hating him either. While I didn

“Worst of all, Will had been elected Biggest Flirt too. I’d felt like I was only teasing him, but the school thought he’d been flirting back. That gave me a head rush. Will secretly liked me.”

Wanting an ultimate high school experience? Wanting to be thrown into a world full of teenagers, romance, and drama? Jennifer Echols basically has done it here in a matter of 336 pages. Hilarious, witty, and fresh, Echols has mastered the mind of an ordinary teenage girl who has never dat

Someone help me, I’m still grinning like a fool.

I’ve said this before, but Jennifer Echols is my go-to author for when I want a light, fun, read. With Biggest Flirts, she made me ignore everything and everybody until I read every single page of this book.

You know when you’re watching a romance movie and all of a sudden there’s this montage with happy, upbeat music that fast forwards the couple through different situations so at the end of the 2-minute montage th

Jennifer Echols always manages to craft wonderfully flawed and interesting characters. Her girls are not your typical perfect, straight A virgins (although there is nothing wrong with that), but their lives and choices make them sometimes a little rough, but always endearing and once you get to know why they are how they are, you have to love them. I did like that Tia owns her sexuality. She has a friend with benefits(how far those benefits go is never really stated) and hooks up with whomever s ...more

Biggest Flirts isn't a novel that's going to make you reconsider the meaning of life, or ponder the great mysteries of the world. But it is a novel that'll make you smile, and leave you with that warm, satisfied feeling in your heart.

Tia is a great protagonist and different to a lot of YA heroines; sheembraces her sexuality wholeheartedly and I liked that she didn't slut-shame or judge other people. I thought that was a great attitude and really sent a nice message that people need to stop villa
Biggest Flirts is just what I needed from Jennifer Echols. I had so much fun reading this book and I am so happy that this is part of a companion novel/trilogy. I've basically read almost all of Jennifer Echols's books and I have to say that ever since Such A Rush.. I haven't enjoyed any of her newer books until I read Biggest Flirts

We have Tia here, who is a senior in high school and basically someone who lives in her own world. Her dad works nights and sleeps through the day and her older sis
I didn't understand Will, but I knew enough that I didn't want to. He was so hot, and kissed so well, and that earring! He was the type of guy I could get really attached to if I wasn't careful. And though I might not seem like the most conscientious person most of the time, I was always careful about boys.

Having witnessed all of her older sisters fall in love and fall apart, the last thing Tia Cruz wants is a boyfriend, but senior year, when Will Matthews arrives at her school—the undeniably co
When love takes over, what else is there?

Tia doesn’t want a boyfriend. She wants to be carefree and have a wonderful time hooking up with cute boys. But when Will moves to her town, things change. Will Tia choose to settle down?

At the beginning, I found Tia a little more on the wild side. She seemed carefree and she didn’t really care if she went bare feet on the school ground. It’s refreshing to see a girl who didn’t care to wear makeup. And it’s fun to watch her deliver amazing performances wh

Official Summary:

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.

I loved it! It had a quick pace but the characters had depth and weight.

Will just moved into town (somewhere in Florida) his senior year. There are a number of reasons why this move sucks: 1. He was already voted senior class president on his previous class 2. He left his girlfriend back home who #3. Cheated with his bestfriend the night he moved out. After all his careful planning of going back to Minesotta next year:college, all his plans gone down in the drain. Just. Like. That.

reasons i finished this book:

a. it was hot
b. no internet so obviously i was depressed.
c. i like reading about flirts.

but seriously, don't waste your time on this one.
"Mr. Matthews, get off Ms. Cruz" This is one of my favorite lines from the book.

Yes, it's basically about two people who love each other but have a hard time coming to terms with their feelings. I loved the witty dialogue and the swoon worthy scenes. I loved the Will and Tia tandem but my book boyfriend award would have to go to resident badass, Sawyer. I don't know why but his colorful history and his maladaptive behavior just draws me to him. I want to read more about him!

Anyway, overall I lov
3.5 stars - I was a huge fan of Echols' earlier works and no so much of the later ones, and this was a story I enjoyed almost as much as I used to. Having said that, I felt this book was too similar to Major Crush - though not nearly as good.

The good points - I like Tia, and I'm not too crazy about her trying-hard-to-not-achieve attitude, but whatever. She's funny, and despite her problems, she can be a pretty caring person. Will is also very likable, and at times, I can honestly see where he's

I didn't mind personal failure so much, but I did not want to cause anybody else to crash and burn.

I think I'll suffice it to say that I enjoyed Biggest Flirts quite a bit. I wasn't expecting to,, book slump. But I was pleasantly surprised, and I'm glad I took the time to read it. Biggest Flirts is a novel that centres around the life of Tia Cruz, who's a senior in high school, plays drums in a marching band, and is a total underachiever. She meets new boy Will Mathews a week befo
What I Liked: Jennifer Echols is one of my favorite YA authors and I never know what I'm falling into when I pick up one of her books, I just know I'm guaranteed to have a good time.

Biggest Flirts, Book One in the Superlatives Series is fast, funny and entertaining. But it's not without it's more serious moments too. In spite of her party girl reputation and her snarky comebacks, Tia is actually harboring some pretty deep rooted issues. But for her, it's easier to let people believe what they wa
All the stars for sex positive and girl positive portrayals. I just loved it.
Oh, I liked this a lot. I liked that it was a different kind of fucked up family life than we typically see in YA novels, and I liked (and this is going to sound awful), that there actually was a class element to it. I liked Tia and Will and their inability to get on the same page. I liked Tia's friendships with Sawyer and Kaye and Harper. I liked that she was a band geek and self-sabotaged. I did not like the accent mockery, but that's my own personal hot button. (Also, you know, maybe instead ...more
When I heard Jennifer Echols was writing a new book series The Superlatives I was thrilled. I love her books, she’s such a fun author to read and she never disappoints! Even better is all three books were more or less released within a year of each other, meaning there wasn’t a long wait for each of the books to be released which is always a win!

When I started Biggest Flirts I was a bit confused. I had to check on GoodReads if it was indeed the first book in the series because the familiarity af
