I fell in love with the Lovelly brothers in book 1. Going into Flirting With Love and reading how Hudson met his soul mate, Blake was refreshing.

This was such a sweet love story. My heart was fluttering and I felt happy to be a part of their journey. Clara did a wonderful job of bringing us flashbacks intertwining with the past and the present. We get front and center seats to the younger sides of Blake and Hudson and the hardships they endured together to get whe

FIDAH'S REVIEW
5 STARS

Flirting with Love is a unique contemporary romance that is both light and sweet yet there is an underlying layer of profoundness and intensity. The author brings you into the story and immediately takes you into these characters' lives. I was captivated from the very first page. It wasn't hard at all. What surprised me was the fact that I liked the format of the book. Clara writes by breaking the story into two perspectives, with alternating timelines from now and then. I c

I just have to say WOW! The fierceness of the love Hudson has for Blake had me looking at my husband like "WHY CANT YOU LOVE ME LIKE THAT?!" This story is so freaking sweet. Hudson is so cute and Blake is adorable. This is one YA book that really got to me. I couldn't and DIDN'T put it down till I was done. You laugh and swoon and then cry, laugh, then swoon again. I seriously want Hudson NOW! I thought Heath was one of a kind but you can see where he got that heart from. I didn't wa

Great!

I chose this rating because this was a really good book. The characters were very different and unique. I really love hope she was a melding best friend name Hope, but Hudson love her anyway. I think she was just trying to get Hudson and Blake together anyway. They had a hard time getting there anyway when they were pretending to be girlfriend and boyfriend and ended up falling in love with each other. But things turned a little ugly.

Going into Flirting With Love I was more than excited, but at the same time I was a little apprehensive but for the reasons you may not think. You see, I love Heath, like so freaking much. In my mind, I was like there is no way Clara can change that and make me love someone else more. Well, let me tell you...if you are thinking the same thing that I thought then you would be wrong...SO, VERY WRONG!

“Sometimes, bigger risks have the best rewards.”

Flirting with Love (Lovelly #2) is Hudson and Blake Lovelly story. I first meet Hudson the oldest Lovelly Brother in the first book in the series “Forever Kinda Love” which was Heath, the youngest brother story. I have to say I liked Heath, but I really like Hudson. It must be an age thing! Haha

*A copy given by author, in return for an honest review.*

Flirting With Love is an innocent and sweet story about Blake and Hudson when they fell in love at seventeen and their lives now as married adults. This story goes back to the past and present as it shows their lives then and now. Blake came from a poor town that rich town folks where Hudson is from called them the junkies. They met at the most-prestigious debate competition, that also started their own pranks with each other. The pranks t

Although this story starts with the heroine, Blake, on the way with her nervous husband, Hudson, to have their first child, it's actually the account of them from day one. We pop between their heads, learning about the funny first moments and how their lives progressed from there. Each chapter is titled with the person's name, so it's easy to keep track of who's viewpoint were reading at that moment. I really enjoyed this switch-back and found myself caught up in both of their emotions as they s ...more

Review from Rising Indies United

This is the second book in the Lovelly series. They can be read as standalones, but I recommend you read them in order. We meet Blake and Hudson b in the first book, Forever Kind of Love. Blake and Hudson's story starts about 12 years before Forever Kind of Love. i know this book started out as a novella and I'm so glad that it turned into a full length novel though. I don't think a novella would have been enough for these two to get their story out.

Sure, Blake and I started this little charade as a prank. A game. Flirting with love. But what's between us now is something more.
***

Blake and Hudson are embarking on a new journey in their life: parenthood. But before there was marriage and a baby carriage; there was a boy and girl and a gaggle of pranks. There was also a faux relationship between the two. And this is their story.

This book was so darn cute. I was smitten with the storyline and all the fun these two characters had throughout.

I was so excited to read Hudson and Blake's story after meeting them in Forever Kinda Love and I loved them even more in Flirting With Love!! I positively loved seeing how they came together and learning all about them! It was very fun and entertaining and I really enjoyed reading this book!

I absolutely loved this book!

I wasn't sure going in how I'd like the time hop from present day back to 1999 (the book is told through flashbacks when Blake and Hudson first meet, then jumps to the present where Blake is giving birth to their first baby every few chapters) but it actually worked really nicely. I loved how they first met and the crazy pranks they pulled on each other. I also loved the inner dialogue of Hudson. He is hilarious and some of the things that went through his mind just

5-LOVELLY STARS!!!

I loved A FOREVER KINDA LOVE and couldn't wait to read FLIRTING WITH LOVE so I could find out the story behind Blake and Hudson's relationship.

I absolutely love the story of how they met! I really liked the way this book was written. It goes from present-day to back when they met and their relationship started. Some authors try this and it ends up too confusing and hard to read, but this one is perfect!

I love Blake's personality. She is strong, and feisty and a very loyal fri

This story is soooo sweet. Hudson is painfully cute and Blake is adorable. They are sassy, well written and lovely.
Hudson and Blake's story starts when they are on the way to have their first baby. The whole book is basically the story of how they found themselves and fell in love. Liked the jumping of time, present and past, and though i thought it would have made me confused, it actually didn’t, the writer made it easy to follow it.

I received this book in exchange for a review.

Hudson is about to become a father. Blake is scared. She's not sure she can do this. The book flashes back to 1999 (when Blake and Hudson met) and current times. The story is also told from both of their viewpoints.

I enjoyed the book. It was interesting to read it from both points of view. The main error I caught was saying Blake was singing along with a song in 1999 that wasn't released until 2006. Overlooking that, on the whole it was very good.

The series has gotten even better! The emotions are high! The stakes are even higher! But what will it take! What will happen in the end!! Blake and Hudson will make you fall in love and want more of them and their story! Be ready to sink yourself in to a great story that will have you wrapped and hard to put away!

There are triggers in this book. People who have endured or have loved ones who have endured abuse, may react badly to some aspects of this story. it is NOT the main storyline but it is important to understand that it does feature in this book. As I have repeatedly said though, when I read these aspects in books..... If we never shine a light on the ugly things people do to one another, we allow them to continue, unseen in the dark. Perhaps if we are more aware of the signs of struggle, we might ...more

Clara Stone is an amazing author! This is my third book by her, all in the same series. I would have preferred to have read them in order, but in the end, it doesn't matter. An awesome book is still awesome! Blake and Hudson were the best characters that played well off each other. The story was completely believable and had me enthralled from the beginning. I feel like I have all these amazing five star books that I read, and sometimes I have to think for a minute what I want to say. This time, ...more

I read the first book in this series as part of the Review Tour a few years ago, and I enjoyed the first book, so I have no idea why it's taken me over a year to read this book! I'm so happy I finally have though! I'm also going to meet this author at a book convention very soon, so I wanted to catch up on this series before meeting her!

Ha! I loved reading this book! In fact, I actually like it better than the first book (although I still loved that one too). Perhaps the personality of the characters or the relatable situations they were in made me love it more. As with the previous book, you can expect intricate writing and high levels of entertainment. I had been able to easily immersed myself into the reading and I loved the journey the author took us on in the story.

I’ll tell you right off the bat when comparing, “Flirting with Love,” to the first book in the series, “Forever Kinda Love,” this second book is the winner for me. While I enjoyed Heath and Carrigan’s story in book one, I really enjoyed reading Hudson and Blake’s love story in book two more.

Flirting with Love is the companion novel to Forever Kinda Love. It's Blake and Hudson's Love story! *sigh* And just like Forever Kinda Love, Flirting with Love was mind-blowing! Blake and Hudson are having their baby and in this wonderful story you'll get flashbacks on how they came into each others lives. And what a journey it was. If you loved both Blake and Hudson before then you will fall in love with them all over again. You'll see them in a whole new light.

We've had Heath Lovelly's story, now we're going back in time to find out just how big brother Hudson got oh-so-lucky as to land an awesome lady like Blake. The novel bounces back and forth between the present, when Blake is in labour, and the past, where Blake has just met Mr. Golden Boy, Hudson Lovelly.
