Unpopular Opinion ahead! And this time it is not me! Maybe it is the book, but i will blame Davim!

Judging you Davim! Totally not me!


Shite! I can't! I really can't! I can't stop rolling my eyes! Ugh!

One day Evan is thinking about Stevie as a kid, then BOOM! BAM! the next minute, He wants to suck Stevie! baby this! baby that! Ummmmm! Nope!

The beginning of Flirt was so cute and funny, I was bouncing in my seat. But as the story progressed, it lost some, then most, of its charm.

First of all, the Chief went from treating Stevie like a kid, to being in full lust mode, to falling in love, faster than butter melts on a hot flapjack.

There was no real anticipation or relationship development. As soon as Stevie started dating the love of his life, he lost his damn mind and began acting like a defensive, sulky teenager.

Steve's sassiness

Laugh out loud funny! Hot, steamy book. Great addition to the series.

Ok, so Book 1 didn’t really work for me, but this one certainly made up for it because it worked just fine.
Let me introduce you to sassy Stevie....he that puts those flamazing flamingo’s to shame with the way he owns ‘pink’ and 20 year older Fire Chief, Ewan....he that owns the Silver Fox moniker like an arsonist owns a fire 😉.
It was light. It was sexy. But most of all, it

This definitely is my new favorite Lucy Lennox obsession. 😁 I absolutely freaking loved this little audio! 😱😍 Stevie is so unapologetically feminine and gay and sassy, I can’t help but falling in love with his character. 😌 The banters in this book are just pure gold! 😂 I snorted out coffee several times through out audio. It’s “I-almost-peed-my-pants” funny. 🤣 Granted, Stevie was a bit whiny and fickle in the middle but I forgave him quickly for his wits. And oh that delicious silver-foxy Evan, ...more
This book was a hot mess and not in a good way.

The start seemed promising but then it went downhill from there.

The gist of the story is Stevie has been in love with Evan Paige since the first time he saved him from being bullied at the age of 11. Now at age 21 Stevie's heart is still set on Evan who is now the local fire Chief. Stevie always fantasized about being with Evan but never thought he had the chance but low and behold Evan has been crushing on Stevie too.

Should be a simple get togethe

**** Flirt is a short story in the FOREVER WILDE series. A refreshing, romantic, rousing romp ! We find minor angst, about the age difference we usually see; nor did the older man say he was sorry for being too old. NOPE.
Our sexy silver fox is Fire Chief, Evan, 41, and he's the pursuer.

Flamboyant Stevie, 21, is going to get his greatest wish.

We get some funny vignettes and two very sweet men who need each other. Evan has no reservations, but Stevie is afraid he's not good enough for Evan. On
I don’t think I realized Stevie was that young. He’s really young. Really.

I am, I guess, a really cold hearted person but man, I am not a fan of the “evil” or “bad” Mom getting away with well, being evil or bad. I hate stories like this because I think the Mom needs to be punched in the face. The Mom never gets punched in the face and always seems to get the best second chances evah! Ugh. This bitch did not deserve what she got. Bitch.

Anywhoo! Aside from those two itty bitty shockers I kinda lov

I was really hoping this would be amazing. And, in the beginning, it was really good. I totally felt for Stevie. Even Evan's interactions with him - so much good material there!

Then they sort of get together - and OMG they both turn into assholes! Stevie acted like a surly teen with lots of "as if" or "I can't even" and f-bomb language along with snarky, nasty comments which were not cute, not funny, and fully obnoxious. I cannot for one second believe any of that was appealing to a guy like Eva

Flirty Start...Convoluted Ending....

Going into this one I knew to expect an average story. And my expectations were met.

Stevie was fun at the beginning and then he turned into a hot, evasive mess. Chief was alpha growls from the get-go and that didn’t change at all. In between that we get hit with Stevie’s domestic issues which seemed to get shoved in there for heightened drama, but only served to make me scratch my head.

Good points: Stevie’s deflowering.

It’s no secret that I adore Stevie and would’ve loved to give this a 5-Star rating but I couldn’t in good conscience do so.

There are things that went really well and others... not so well. I don’t know whether to attribute it to the short length of this book(I personally think Stevie should’ve gotten a full length book) or the way everything felt rushed but it had potential to be so much more.

I do hope we get to see glimpses of the couple in the next books
I really enjoyed this one!

Short and sweet and a hell of a lot of fun. I completely adored Stevie (although I'm not sure that I would have forgiven his mother if I were him). Chief Paige is just what Stevie needs and wants. He doesn't want Stevie to be anything but himself and that's a story I always fall for.

I have been thinking about reading the Wilde series for a while but this is the short story that made me take the plunge.

I love characters like Stevie that are so fully themselves. Watching me go after Evan and Evan really value Stevie is a treat. This is a funny sexy read.

3.5* (for shortness)

Joyous short story in the Forever Wilde series written by Lucy for the amazing Back To School Instafreebie giveaway.

Stevie and Evan were just a wonderful pair, gruff and protective Fire Chief and outwardly sassy but secretly quite innocent barista Stevie made my heart melt.

Everything about this short story just worked for me.

3.5 Stars! Great enjoyable little novella where Stevie, the precocious little twink in Hobie finds his HEA with the hot and older Fire-Chief Evan Paige. The beginning is quite humorous and full of sass as was expected from a story about Stevie. 😁. It lost a little of its fervor in the middle of the plot with a lot going on in Stevie's life.. , Nevertheless through troubles and trials this May-November couple find their groove and the epilogue is very sweet. 😍
5 flaming stars!

I don't remember Lucy Lennox ever being this funny. lol I mean, there is of course Taming Teddy and Grounding Griffin. But this was kinda epic! I was laughing my ass off. ;D

Stevie is hilarious. Sassy, mouthy, flamboyant and a flirt. Fitting title.
"Stevie was vivacious, sexy, funny, and enthusiastic. With a healthy dose of bossiness sprinkled in."

There is one man however who makes him stutter, his lifelong crush. Evan is the Chief of the Fire Department. He'd known Stevie since h

I'm four hours behind on lectures and have assignments coming out the wazoo. I need to stop procrastinating with this series.


Sweet short story but nothing to call home about. Stevie was adorbs but didn’t care much for how their love story developed. By the blurb, I was expecting something else.
Glad to see Stevie finally get a happy ending of his own with Evan. Stevie is 21 while Evan is in his 40's, so there is quite the age difference, but they love each other.

It was interesting to know more about Stevie, because he's basically just been a guy who has flirt with the guys in previous books before so we didn't know much about him.

He's had a tougher life than he's let out, and the fact that he can be so sweet and happy and full of life is amazing, and Evan clearly sees that. He needs
Probably only 4.5 Stars but OMG, I've been dying for Stevie's story since the first installment and it did not disappoint. LOVED the humor, the snark, the banter, THE SEX. Michael Pauley NAILED the voices for this audio, and my only complaint would be that I wanted a longer story!!

Can’t say I loved this - even though I enjoyed the characters... it felt rushed in all aspects.
This author's writing is really hit or miss for me (let's be honest, mostly miss) but I've read their Forever Wilde series and was intrigued by this pairing.

While I enjoyed the characters and the set-up at the start, but what started out promising quickly fell short. The short story format just didn't work well here and things moved WAY too fast. It felt forced and completely unbelievable, and I honestly didn't really enjoy the characters by the end. Stevie acted like a brat, and I found the way

MY LORD ... one has to wonder what authors must be thinking and what THEY apparently consider to be romantic, funny, charming, endearing, or even positive!! I know authors want us (readers) fully immersed in their books, but sometimes, things go wrong, and they end up only putting more emphasis on themselves ... because one has to wonder, how can one find ANY of Stevie's obnoxiousness or any of the ways these MCs have acted as endearing?!!? Why would you even do that to your characters; why crea ...more
Strong start but quickly fizzled.
Stevie is a sassy loudmouth...but in an endearing saucy way.
Evan is a protective sexy fire chief...but he had some creepy vibes.
It was like the fast-forward button was held the entire story.
Things progressed WAY too quickly. And it felt very superficial.
Nope. Not enough development for me to believe things.

*2.5 skimming the surface stars*
Audiobook review

A sassy virgin and a fire chief. It sure has the potential for some real fireworks. Stevie is the town flirt and is known for turning his charms on everything's that's alive. This time he has a target, the fire chief whom he's had his eyes on for a while now. Ad hopefully the Chief will introduce him to the wonders of sex and love making. Stevie and Evan's relationship didn't feel quite right to me. It felt off in some way. Not only that, they felt off, a bit too inconsistent fo

Dreams Do Come True!

An abrupt romantic tale between cheeky, Bakery Clerk/Hospital Coffee Cart Clerk/Dancer Stevie & laid back Fire Chief Evans. Pros: generally likable MCs, quirky, funny banter and the Wilde family. Cons: the abrupt romance, how the relationship between Stevie’s mother and Chief Evans developed, and Stevie unfiltered mouth. Although sometimes Stevie’s mouthiness is funny; it is also annoying. If you’re looking for a romantic tale that makes sense tale, don’t bother. However, if

What a great story! And free! What more could I ask?

The tale of romance between 21-year-old Stevie and silver fox and fire chief, Evan Paige, was fun. Believable? Not really. Humorous and romantic and fun? Yes, indeed.

And the best part is that I now want to read the entire series.

💜💜💜💜4 flamboyant purple hearts! It was super cute, fun and sexy. Much like Stevie. I only hate that it was so short. Especially with some of the sweet drama potential just lying there. I wish LL would've built it up more and made bigger reveals instead of just skimming over it. As always LL gave us intsa-lust and insta-commitment. I fucking love Stevie and his purple hair.
