Book Review: The Trouble With Flirting

By: Claire LaZebnik
Pages: 288
Release Date: February 26, 2013

Summary: Franny's supposed to be working this summer, not flirting. But you can't blame her when guys like Alex and Harry are around. . . . 

 Franny Pearson never dreamed she'd be attending the prestigious Mansfield Summer Theater Program. And she's not, exactly. She's working for her aunt, the resident costume designer. But sewing her fingers to the bone does give her an opportunity to spend time with her crush, Alex Braverman. If only he were as taken with the girl hemming his trousers as he is with his new leading lady. 

 When Harry Cartwright, a notorious flirt, shows more than a friendly interest in Franny, she figures it can't hurt to have a little fun. But as their breezy romance grows more complicated, can Franny keep pretending that Harry is just a carefree fling? And why is Alex suddenly giving her those deep, meaningful looks? In this charming tale of mixed messages and romantic near-misses, one thing is clear: Flirting might be more trouble than Franny ever expected.

Review: This is exactly what I needed. It was cute, fun and standalone. After reading a bunch of books in series it becomes a pain, you either have to wait for the next book to come out or you have to go and buy the other books. I love books that make you think deeply (thank you John Green who wrote the last three books I read that did make me think) but I also love to just read a book for the sake of it being cute. This book was delightful.

I really enjoyed the characters. I liked Franny generally she was nice and sweet, and she was normal. Being normal is good, she isn't insanely rich or cool, because well for a girl to be like that is a bit  unrealistic. She seemed real. This is a minor problem but I didn't like the name Franny. I don't know, I just didn't really like it as a name, but I liked her character so it's ok. 

Then you have the two guys Alex and Harry. I liked Alex more than Harry for most of the book. I didn't like Harry as much at first but he grew on me. Alex was so sweet and nice. Harry is the type of guy that flirts with all the girls and gets a ton of attention. I didn't like that about him but by the end he seemed I don't know, a bit different. 

It was a fun quick read and I really liked it. If you want something cute, I would recommend this. Plus you can decide for yourself who you like more Alex or Harry.


P.S. did anyone notice the box around the summary, I just learned how to do it from a post by the amazing Ruby at Feed Me Books Now
