Can acting in love lead to the real thing? This standalone addition to the Flirt series is sweet, fresh, and clean.

Abbey couldn’t be more excited. The end of the school year is coming, as is the annual sophomore class renaissance faire…and the headlining theatrical performance, where Abbey will be starring as a lead. There’s only one problem: her costar, Jason Hardy.

Everyone else might think Jason is perfect, but Abbey knows the truth. She remembers what he did at the school dance, and she knows he’s a total jerk.

But during the daily rehearsals, Abbey starts to see a side to Jason she hadn’t noticed before...and he might not be as bad as she thought. Each day she’s falling for him just a little bit more, and she thinks maybe Jason feels the same.

Or maybe he’s a better actor than Abbey could have guessed.

Wanting a quick but HEA read, I thought I give this book a try. It no doubt, gave me what I wanted.

Plot: This is about a girl who held a grudge for far too long on a long time crush. I like that this plot is what it is. A cute read that gives the reader that HEA feeling. I like the little non-sense drama and even the hard to get act. If anything, I settled in for a read that is good.

Love: Of course Abbey is smart girl and sticks to her passion. It takes her a while to finally see Jason for who he really is. She bases him on the past and that makes it hard for her to forgive him. Jason is a great guy. Even though he knew why Abbey was being the way she is being he still was patient with her and waited. He didn’t push but instead, gave Abbey what she wanted. Which ironically, only made her want him more.

Ending: It has a HEA. That’s okay, sometimes as constant readers we want that Happily Ever After. I like the way it ended with Abbey and Jason finally admitting their feelings. I can close the book and feel great!

Overall, this is a cute, fun read. It has plenty of teenage drama with the perfect amount of romance to make you roll your eyes. LOL. It’s a great story. I just learned that their is a companion to this story, so I will be reading the first book. Never Too Late is the perfect spring read for those looking for some love in the air.

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!

    I’m an HEA girl all the way Savy, so I think this will definitely be a book for me! I’m also a bit of a grudge holder, so I can relate to Abbey for sure. Thanks for putting this one on my radar!

  2. Sometimes all I want is an HEA. Love that feel good feeling when you close a book!
