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. Tia just wants to have fun. She’s worked hard to earn her reputation as the life of the party, and she’s ready for a carefree senior year of hanging out with friends and hooking up with cute boys. And her first order of business? New guy Will. She can’t get enough of his Midwestern accent and laidback swagger. As the sparks start to fly, Will wants to get serious. Tia’s seen how caring too much has left her sisters heartbroken, and she isn’t interested in commitment. But pushing Will away drives him into the arms of another girl. Tia tells herself it’s no big deal…until the yearbook elections are announced. Getting voted Biggest Flirts with Will is, well, awkward. They may just be friends, but their chemistry is beginning to jeopardize Will’s new relationship—and causing Tia to reconsider her true feelings. What started as a lighthearted fling is about to get very complicated…

I can't seem to rave enough about this book. First of all, there is high school band. I was in high school band, I was in college band. I get all of the high school band dynamics.


What I loved: I loved what a fast-paced, energetic story this was. Once I started reading, I really didn't stop. The whole "will they or won't they get together" story line is always one that I love. Echols manages to keep readers waiting until the very end to find out--but that didn't bother me so much. I felt like the story was a process....one that both Tia and Will (but especially Tia) had to go through before they could figure out what they really wanted.

What left me wanting more: I don't think Will had his shirt off nearly enough....kidding...well, maybe... Seriously, I loved this story. I was hooked from the beginning and was sad when it ended. I hope Tia and Will make some appearances in the other books of this series.

Final Verdict: A fun book that you won't be able to put down!

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 want instead of living up to her potential. At last that way she doesn't have to worry about being abandoned, hurt or disappointed. Or so she thinks.

Enter Will.

With his blue eyes, cool car and pierced ear, AND the fact that he's always taking his shirt off, (It's the heat. Not that I'm complaining though.) this Minnesotan makes Tia rethink her "no boyfriends" vow. They meet under interesting circumstances, exchange a few witty barbs and enjoy some well placed kisses, and before either of them knows it, they've earned themselves the title of, "Biggest Flirts".

The problem? Tia doesn't do the boyfriend thing and Will is actually dating someone else. Sort of.

But it's no big deal because they're just friends anyway.

Right?

Sure.

Until the girl Will is not-really-but-may-be dating breaks up with him and Tia regains her spot as Drum Captain - again. And then there's Sawyer and the ever present are-they-or-aren't-they rumor that surrounds him and Tia. It's all good though because Will has a plan. A way for him and Tia to both get what they want, but it will involve spending more time together and playing up their Biggest Flirts roles.

But plans can always change and when things start to feel more real than pretend, Tia will have to decide whether to take a chance on Will or continue marching to the beat of her own drum and risk losing her heart in the process.

What Left Me Wanting More: This was one of those rare books where I actually enjoyed the supporting characters more than I did the MC. I thought Kaye and Harper were a lot of fun and I was really excited to learn that the third book in this series will focus on Sawyer because he definitely piqued my interest.

I know the on again/off again situation with Tia and Will was all part of the process, but I wanted to see them have more happy time together. Hopefully we'll get to glimpse them in the books that follow.

Final Verdict: Entertaining start to a fun new series!

Favorite Quote: "Mr. Matthews, get off Miss Cruz. I'm starting to sound like a broken record."
