Flat-Out Love | [Jessica Park]

Flat-Out Love

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.

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.

    "Delightful creative story with strong female lead"

    I have already listened to this book 3 times, I love it so much. It's the story of a college student who "likes a challenge" coming to live with a family in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Every character in the book was fascinating to me, from the well grounded, kind-hearted Julie to the nerdy MIT student Matt, and especially young Celeste, with her eccentricities. The romance in this book touched my heart and I fell in love with all the characters. Each scene is essential to the book, and the humorous lines are expertly delivered by Julia Whelan. There's a late night drunken phone conversation that is exceptionally funny. The sad parts will wrench your heart and the story builds to a satisfying climax.

    I recommend this book for ANYONE.

    Story
    "Beautiful"

    It was a beautifully written story about love and loss. The ending was predictable early on, but I still couldn't put it down. As soon as it was finished, I immediately wanted to start it over again. Matt and Finn are so easy to fall in love with, even with all of their flaws. And finally, a book written about a smart female lead, who actually sounds and acts smart.

    I read and write for a living and I also commute, so listening to books is a real gift for me. I love a good narrator and good sci-fy

    Story
    "Witty, Deep, Tragic and Romantic"

    I just finished this book, so I am inspired to share this wonderful, well written story. I laughed and was entirely engaged throughout. Although I did figure out the ending earlier, it did not lessen the impact of the spectacular turnaround of the story line one bit! Julie finds a family she can take care of to remove her from her own dysfunctional family, only to find out that she was the one that was saved. Heart wrenching and funny I would recommend this young adult book all day long, (and I'm 50) Lol.

    It's one of the best. Great story. Fantastic narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I'm not a vocal laugher usually but this book had me laughing out loud. I just hope the people driving around me didn't think I was nuts!!

    Once I finished this book, I immediately started replaying it. I couldn't get enough of it.

    I enjoy mysteries, NOT thrillers, contemporary fiction, especially about diverse cultures, and sometimes history, if it doesn't involve too many dates. I often listen to a book multiple times, discovering unnoticed details in the retelling.

    Story
    "Flat-Out In Love!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Flat-Out Love to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the book, but the narration was perfect. It had me living every emotion.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Flat-Out Love?

    I loved their banter, and quirky moments. Celeste's character was great. I loved the whole parachuting story.


    Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan – was your favorite?

    My favorite was Celeste.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to it in one sitting, leaving my husband ignored. I just couldn't stop listening even though you kind of know what;s coming. It had me living the whole experience.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is all that and a bag of chips!!! Great lighthearted fun and romance. I usually don't go for the romance novels, unless there is some vampire and tough love involved, but this was a great change of pace. It was wonderful and would most definitely listen to it several more times.

    "flat out love is fantastic!"

    This book is a great book and the narrator is the best! She brings this story to life! Love the different problems and how the families deal with it and how the main character tries to help the host family and how her own families problems are not important to her. Love love love this book!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It was all I could talk about when I finished the book.


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

    It really stands alone. I won't say more otherwise I might spoil the read.


    What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The oration was 25% of the unexpected. Really great.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A 5 tissue read


    Any additional comments?

    Unexpected and sweet. I could relate on many levels.

    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.
