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.
Livi sees starting college as a fresh start. She'll no longer be labeled a "nerd" like in high school. So she ditches her superhero inspired t-shirts and opts for trendier threads. She stuffs her violin out of view and decides it's "not her thing" anymore. And, she succeeds with the friendship of Allegra and company. But, maybe choosing popularity over her true self might not be the smartest choice.
For the most part I truly enjoyed The Trouble with Flirting. I definitely chuckled a lot and I absolutely loved Livi's sarcasm. Sarcasm is my native language. It was a fun and fast read with light drama and dilemmas.
The only thing I will say is it was never extremely clear to me who the love interest would end up being. There's popular guy, Jackson. Who started off adorable. His arc is probably the most believable in this story. Then "gross" Luke who is introduced and shocks Livi with how hot he has gotten. I needed more Luke! Then Adam. Oh my giddy heart! Adam is so incredibly swoon worthy. I would read this book over again just for him!
Anyway, Livi was very irritating at times. "GIRLFRIEND CAN'T YOU SEE WHAT'S RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU?" Is what I kept yelling at the book. Her character development was great! I'm glad she finally opened her eyes and accepted herself for who she is meant to be.
Overall this would be a good book to pick up over spring break for a quick read! It is part of a series, but can be read as a stand alone. Cute Adam, and Livi's sarcasm are totally worth it!
