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.

    Story
    "Just loved it"
    What did you love best about Flat-Out Love?

    I loved every moment spent with the story. Positive attitude of the book brings pleasant atmosphere for readers. Sense of humor is amazing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story absorbed me totally. Laugh was changed to sadness in a moment. Exciting journey with the book.


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

    The calmness of Julia's thoughts is impressing. Such a self-organized, challenging and goal-oriented personality!


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

    Totally. I could not take myself from the book.


    Any additional comments?

    The episode with psychiatrist, the switch to Julia's personal problem resonating with the hosting family's one was an awakening. The narrator's voice is still echoing in me - every feeling of the characters' was performed perfectly.

    Story
    "Emotionally charged with both humor and heartache"
    What made the experience of listening to Flat-Out Love the most enjoyable?

    Trying to figure out all of the dysfunctional attributes of each character and then watching them begin to heal.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the elevator scene and the ending.


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

    When you fully realize the extent of the emotional breakdown for each character.


    Any additional comments?

    I found this story to be an emotional roller-coaster both heart warming and heart wrenching. You feel from the very start that each character has some form of dysfunction in their lives. It is an experience learning what each one is dealing with and how they deal or not. The banter between Matthew, Finn and Julie is clever and witty. Each character is vivid and real, with deep relationships that draw you in. I definite recommend.

    It does deal with some issues that I believe are better for older teens.

    Story
    "Weird Story but Flat-Out Interesting"

    I don't remember why I chose this book, but I am glad I did. The story is a bit weird at first but weird becomes normal very fast. It is a little unbelievable, but very enjoyable nonetheless.

    Story
    "I Am Flat Out In Love With This Book!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Flat-Out Love the most enjoyable?

    Without giving much away, the story was very unique and the characters drew me in from the start.


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

    She did a great job of narrating and I think she brought out the right amount of emotion that would have been lost in just reading it. I'm so glad I listened to it versus reading it.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of those books that took me by surprise. It had good reviews, so I thought I figured it would be worth a credit...but I really enjoyed every moment of it.

    Story
    "Doesn't Fall Flat"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Flat-Out Love to be better than the print version?

    This is a strange one and I kinda saw the twist end coming from the start, but Ms. Park did a good job of almost convincing me I was wrong. If you like YA and want a nice beach read, this is worth picking up. The plot revolves around an oddball family and a college student who ends up living in their home after her Craig's List rental falls through. It's got absentee parenting, a daughter who carries around a life-sized cardboard cutout of her brother, math, and romance. Like I said, it's a strange one. Enjoy.

    I am a retired Army veteran and love to read. I like murder mystery, but enjoy nonfiction. I am a long time Star Trek fan.
