The Trouble with Flirting

About the book: Labelled a nerd for most of high school, Livi sees her first year of university as a chance to redefine herself. She can finally enter the popular crowd and maybe even land herself a super hot boyfriend. But Livi’s about to discover that the price of popularity may be more than she’s willing to pay, and that what — and who — she wants most has always been right in front of her.

My review: This book is kind of your typical girl likes boys, but forgets to notice that boy next door is in love with her story. Livi is just starting college and can't wait to be on her own, but her living arrangements have fallen through and she's not sure what to do. She's concerned all of her plans to have a "perfect freshman year" are all going to be ruined. At the last minute, she's able to move in with her best friend, Adam and his cousin Luke. Now Livi's plans are back on and she's able to move ahead with operation popularity. But will she even be able to recognize herself, or even like herself when she's finished?

This book was just okay for me. I found myself being kind of disoriented as to where the setting was, as it didn't mention that the were in South Africa until nearly the very end. I thought that even though this was a "clean" book there was quite a lot more talk of sex, drugs, and drinking than I would have liked. I wanted to like Livi, but it really seemed throughout most of the book that she was kind of spoiled and not really ready to grow up. I did think that Adam was a great character, it would have been fun to have seen things through his perspective for at least part of the book.

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
