He was tall, at least six feet, with dirty blond hair that hung over his eyes. His T-shirt read Nietzsche Is My Homeboy.So, that was Matt. Who Julie Seagle likes. A lot. But there is also Finn. Who she flat out loves.Complicated? Awkward? Completely.But really, how was this freshly-minted Boston transplant and newbie college freshman supposed to know that she would end up living with the family of an old friend of her mother's? This was all supposed to be temporary. Julie wasn't supposed to be important to the Watkins family, or to fall in love with one of the brothers. Especially the one she's never quite met. But what does that really matter? Finn gets her, like no one ever has before. They have connection.But here's the thing about love, in all its twisty, bumpy permutations—it always throws you a few curves. And no one ever escapes unscathed.New York Times best-selling author Jessica Park mines the territory of love’s growing pains with wit, sharp insights, and a discernible heat and heartbeat. Her previous novels include Relatively Famous, and she authored the e-shorts What the Kid Says (Parts 1 and 2) and Facebooking Rick Springfield.Visit her on the web at www.jessicapark.meThe author of Flat-Out Love has donated this book to the Worldreader program

Audiobook rating: 3.5 starsBook rating: 3 starsInitial thoughts: Well, Flat-Out Love was something. The resolution was twisted and yet I kinda expected it by the time I reached about a third of the book. Personally, I thought Matt was a disturbing character but in light of all that had happened, the...
That's pretty darned good chick lit. And for the life of me I did NOT see that ending. Maybe because it was 2 in the morning.
