It's just as well paced and the hero and heroine are so likable. All the books in the series are "companion novels", so they go along but aren't a "series" in the sense that you can't read one without the other.

I didn't want to DNF so I pushed through this book no matter how hard it was for me. Needless to say, this book is not for me. I guess 19 is way too old for this shit? Maybe if I was younger, I could've bought everything about this but the characters were so immature and shallow, it was all very tiring to read. 13-year old me would be giggling so hard but 19-year old me is not amused.

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
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

Aaaand we’re back to this again.

This book is tedious, boring, and all around annoying. The characters are flat, the plot is non-existent, and the dialogue is. So. Boring.

Tia, our main character, just wants to have fun. She’s not into commitment. She’s not interested in being the good girl. Nah, she is here to let loose and, ugh offer us a snooze fest because there is nothing fun about Tia.

There's not much of a plot so I guess this paragraph will remain short. . .

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

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

I really liked this book. I'm still in the mood for contemporaries, and this one seemed like the perfect book to get my mind off finals. I didn't really know what to expect when I picked this up. I knew it was going to be set in high school, most likely senior year (because of the superlatives thing), but that's about it. I was hoping it would be cheesy, light and fun, which this book definitely was!

I didn't really connect with the characters. Don't get me wrong, I liked

God, this book is so boring and stupid I hate myself a little for finishing it.
Everything about this book is horrible - the cringy dialogues, cardboard characters, "I'm so funny oh so funny just look at me how funny I am" characters, a character that doesn't want a boyfriend but will have one eventually because YA, no plot whatsoever, and obvs a miserable fauliure of Bechdel test.

"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!

Even though our MC was a train wreck, I actually grew very fond of Tia and her sarcastic humor. I really liked Will. The teen flirting and romance as times made me roll my eyes a bit, but it was cute and funny! I wish there had been more with her Dad, or any parent really...all these teenagers just roaming around parent-free didn't seem realistic. Also, FYI, this is OLDER YA, as some of the sex scenes get a bit graphic, and there's lots of smoking, booze, and drugs throughout.

This book was really just what I needed. It was fun, it was cute, it was hilarious and it was just a joy to read. There was some hidden deepness here and I really felt for Tia in so many ways.

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 have heard many great things about Jennifer Echol's books and I finally decided to read one of them! I choose Biggest Flirts. Not so wise idea. To say I didn't like it would be a little too harsh, but I didn't love it either. I think it is safe to say that there were some things that prevented me of liking this book.

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
This book felt like a series of random events based on these two people meeting at a party. There was no real reason for any of the things that happened in this book and there was no real resolution at the end. I feel like you'd have to read the rest of the series to find out what happens to Will and Tia even though the other books are about Tia's friends and their boyfriends. I don't know if I'll continue with the series even though I have the others from the library already. I may and most lik ...more

December 2017 re-read:
1) I read this in basically one sitting the second time around as well, which bodes well for this novel.

2) I do think the re-read wasn't a great thing for this novel, and maybe I shouldn't have done it. I wanted to do it because I finally got the other two novels in the series, but I did like the re-read less than the original read. I got more annoyed by Will and Tia's back and forth this time, and I suddenly realize how quickly everything went down. I guess it's because t

“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.”

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.

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 love Echols' writing simply because I know I will get a story that will be exactly what the hopeless romantic in me craves and not only will I get the romance and sweet love story I am after, but there will be some depth to the story as well in some shape or form. In other words, not just a fluff read.

I have to make one thing clear going into this review though, this is definitely a young adult read in the fact that it has some angst to it, the characters aren't perfect and make mist


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.

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

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; she embraces 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 vill

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
