This is where I talk mostly about Young Adult and New Adult books. Thanks for checking out my reviews :)
Goodreads Synopsis: As yearbook photographer, Harper is responsible for those candid moments that make high school memorable. But her own life is anything but picture perfect. Her parents’ bitter divorce left her wondering what a loving relationship looks like. And ever since the senior class voted her and star quarterback Brody “Perfect Couple That Never Was,” her friends have been pushing her to ask Brody out.
Brody doesn’t lack female admirers, but Harper can't see herself with him. He’s confused about the match too. Yet they find themselves drawn together—first by curiosity about why the class paired them, then by an undeniable bond.
The trouble is, though they’re attracted to each other, they have a hard time getting along or even communicating well. If they’re the perfect couple, this shouldn’t be so difficult! Soon it becomes clear their class was wrong, and they throw in the towel. But they feel so changed from making the effort, they can’t forget each other. What if this match made in hell is the perfect couple after all?
I read ‘Biggest Flirts’ a while ago and although it was a sweet contemporary story it didn’t leave a lasting impression. Even though I didn’t remember Harper from the first book I was looking forward to reading her story.
Right off the bat I hated Kennedy. I couldn’t understand how she put up with him when he would be so awful to her! Definitely not how you want your boyfriend to act. However I loved Brody!! Harper and Brody’s relationship developed from an attraction to a meaningful connection in such an honest way I couldn’t help but love them together. One thing I did have a slight issue with was Harper took cheating on Kennedy very lightly. Although she didn’t particularly like him, you would think she would have felt a bit guilty seeing as her parents marriage ended because her dad cheated on her mom.
Then Harper and Brody find out that they weren’t actually voted ‘Perfect Couple That Never Was’ so Harper just decides that because of this they shouldn’t be together, what? How does that make sense? Who cares about a title, you like each other and are good together so ye should be together, duh! Then after breaking up they just immediately get back together, no emotional heart to heart or anything. It just made me laugh how stupid that was.
Besides all that this was definitely better than the first book and was really enjoyable. Definitely a nice light read for those wanting to read about a cute romance.
