Just Flirt by Laura Bowers

Friday, June 1, 2012
Serious relationships suck. So Dee Barton, self-proclaimed Superflirt, is planning to spend her summer putting the moves on the guys who come to stay at her family's campground. Flirting is fun and makes everyone involved feel good--which is pretty much the exact opposite of her relationship with her toxic ex-boyfriend, Blaine.
Sabrina Owens's summer plans include keeping her over-the-top karoke dj mother in check, maintaining her status as the queen of the popular crowd--and being the perfect girlfriend to Blaine.
Dee and Sabrina hate each other. But when they're both drawn into a frivolous lawsuit, they must team up and embark on a risky, flirt-filled plot to set things right again.

Goodreads Summary

    This lighthearted novel was more than fun to read. A snow storm could be pouring flakes from the sky, but a reader only feels summer heat and sunshine. Two girls are the main characters of this book. They imagine each other as villains and are only connected by a scumbag boyfriend, Blaine, and petty lawsuit. The novel describes their journey as they become stronger and independent. A funny blog and friends help them grow into adults. Dee has never minded spending her summers working for her family business, a campground. She has plenty of opportunity to flirt, swim, and have fun. This summer will be different, however. Sabrina believes her boyfriend Blaine is great. He may not be attentive, or very polite, but Sabrina is prom queen, and Blaine is her king. A blog is also gaining fame, the Superflirt Chronicles, and some people described seem oddly familiar...      

    Any woman would enjoy reading this book. Ages fourteen and up are appropriate readers for this novel. Bowers wrote Just Flirt to be humorous and fun. Readers will enjoy the girls’ funny friends and exaggerated family members. This is a book that can be read again and again.

    This sounds like an "airhead/bratty" novel, was it like that?

  1. It was a little bit like that, but not terribly so and the main character was not like that at all :)

    I've been really scared of this book, because it sounds very superficial. I'm glad you liked it. Can I ask why you gave it 3 stars, though? You didn't really say what you didn't like about it. :)

  1. Sounds like a cute summer read! Working on a campground is perfect for the summer! Great review! :)

  1. This is definitely not a book that I would pick up on my own, without some sort of prompting. But now that I have read your review, I think I might just have to grab it if I see it sometime. You haven't steered me wrong yet!

    Interesting premise! One girl dating Blaine and his ex having to team up for a lawsuit. Sounds like a cute and fun read. I like the cover. I love to feel sunshine while I'm reading. I don't get to go to the beach but this would make a great poolside read.
