Publisher's Summary

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 Seagles 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.

    "Surprisingly Good"

    I read the reviews and I am glad I chose the book. Good story. The narrator was great. I will look for more books by the JP and other books narrated by the JW. I did question whether someone straight out of high school would be so knowledgeable of life but then I remembered from the start you could tell/feel she was quite intelligent. I will listen again.

    Story
    "Fun Fun Fun!"

    I enjoyed the story and the narration was very good. Somewhere towards the middle of the story, I was able to guess the outcome of the story but it did not keep me from staying engaged throughout the entire story. This was a nice, light, romance with a refreshing lack of overt sex scenes.

    Story
    "Flat-Out Loved it!"

    I actually give this book 4.5 stars.

    This was an incredibly clever story with a great plot. I love it when the author makes the characters so real and vivid that I become so invested in their lives. I cared about them, cried for/with them, and rooted for them.

    Celeste was adorable and quirky and perfect. Just like Julie, I didn't want Celeste to change completely and I'm glad she didn't. This family was so broken but put on such a facade. It was heartbreaking and sad.

    There is something that happens in the story that I guessed right off, but then doubted myself several times only to be right in the end. It was just so weird how the family lived. However, it was all explained in the end and was realistic. My small issue with the "thing" (I don't want to give it away) is that I feel it went on too long. I was ready for it to be over long before it was.

    I love angst and heartbreak but I love the happy endings and the romantic love story the most. In some of these angsty books, I feel like the happy ever after is so short at the end. I need more. I want to see more happiness for these characters that suffered, cried, and hurt so much throughout the story.

    This was a really great story with some exceptional characters. I recommend this for anyone that does like to cry, laugh, and have their happy ending.

    "Great story and finally a Narrator that was good"

    I have just recently started listening to audio books and I'm still not sure how I feel about it. This is the first book where I truly enjoyed the Narrator and didn't feel like they sounded goofy. I loved this story, it had allot of funny parts and I found myself actually laughing out loud. The narrator did a great job of playing out the different emotions without sounding ridiculous. Out of the 4 or 5 books I have now listened to I am most happy overall with this one.

    "I flat out loved this book"

    not exactly what i was expecting when i read the blurb of the book. I knew what was going on very early on in the book but still didn't make me like it any less. I loved the characters (especially celeste) I loved all the quirkiness. Made me laugh out loud & tear up at times.

    "Endearing and Quirky"
    Any additional comments?

    I thought this was an endearing story and I loved the quirkiness. The latter is what made this stand out from similar stories. I enjoyed the light read.

    "loved it."

    A fun, endearing story. great narration too. I was caught up in the book from the beginning. the truth became clear right away, but the suspense for the main character... I liked it.

    Story
    "A Wonderful YA Story that will fill your heart!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would definitely recommend this audio book because the characters really come to life and you join their world as you listen. I loved the story and felt such a connection with all of the characters not just Julie.


    What other book might you compare Flat-Out Love to and why?

    I don't really have anything to compare it to. It really stood out as a great read and something unlike anything else I've read or listened to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The elevator scene was great, but I also loved the going away party.


    Any additional comments?

    This is in my top 5 audio books ever and though my list is quite short, I think it will remain close to the top always.

    "Fun story of young love among tragedy"

    "Silly"

    Silly story line. I like listening to Julia Whelan, which is why I decided on this. It just wasn't very interesting.
