Honestly, if I attempt to write a lengthy review right now, i will flail all over myself in fangirl glee and probably make abs6 squee-inducing stars!!
Honestly, if I attempt to write a lengthy review right now, i will flail all over myself in fangirl glee and probably make absolutely NO sense. So, i will keep this short and sweet.
I ABSOFREAKINGLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK. Every word. Every page. Every egotistical boast that came out of Drew's impossibly pompous-sounding ass. Every last bit of it.
I have always loved reading a romance from the male POV, but I have to say when I started this book and started to see what an arrogant asshat Drew starts out as, I had my doubts that I would ever be able to fully warm up to his character.
Silly, silly girl.
Emma Chase somehow managed to take a character that is so inherently unlikable in the beginning, and transform him into someone you not only end up rooting for, but someone that you completely and unabashedly fall head over heels in love with.
I loved the way the author chose to tell the story in such a conversational way. Like Drew is sitting with a friend and explaining how he went from being a shameless manwhore, to being happily wrapped around the finger of his dream-woman. It felt so natural, and flowed so well that it made it next to impossible to stop reading this book once I started it. And not to mention that it seemed like every other thing Drew said had me laughing like a crazy person off their meds. I mean, my poor Kindle needs a rest after all the highlighting I did. I could have seriously highlighted 90% of the book. It was that damn good.
How many wives have told their husbands, "I'm fine," when they really mean, "I want to cut your balls off with a butcher knife?"
For God's sake, don't let her watch Cinderella. What kind of example is that? A mindless twit who can't even remember where she left her damn shoe, so she has to wait for some douchebag in tights to bring it to her? Give me a frigging break!
Old women have a thing for me. And I don't mean a pinch-my-cheek, pat-my-head kind of thing. I mean a grab-my-ass, rub-my-junk, why-don't-you-push-my-wheelchair-into-the-broom-closet-so-we-can-get-nasty kind of thing. It's f*cking disturbing.
'He moved his trunk-like manhood toward the weeping petals of her womanly center.' Who the f*ck talks like that?!
You get the idea.... ;)
This book was SUCH a wonderful breath of fresh air and I can't express how much I enjoyed getting a peek inside Drew's twisted, perverted, & immensely entertaining mind!
Oh Magnus. My favorite character from both TMI & ID series and my only complaint is that he hasn't gotten his own 500+ page book devoted to nothinOh Magnus.

How I love thee. And truly wish I could embark on one your crazy adventures with you.
Hysterical, sweet, silly and an all around awesome read. ...more

There were many times where I wanted to throttle the lead character of Julie...for many reasons, but mostly for being so blind through-out most of the book. I realize she more than likely just refused to see what was right in front of her from the beginning, but I still can't believe it took her so long to accept what was really going on inside that family.
I loved Matt, and I hated the way Julie treated him for 75% of the book. I also absolutely adored Celeste. Such a sweet, fragile little girl that I wanted to protect as much as Matt did.
Flat-Out Love wasn't what I expected it to be at all, but despite the fact that I spent a good deal of my reading time wanting to kick Julie's ass, I really enjoyed this book over-all. A sweet story about a quirky family that truly deserved a happy ending....more
