My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I 110% loved Flat-Out Love, it was one of the many books that I read when I first got back into reading and I was BLOWN away by it. It was also one of my first indications that my job really is my life and that even when it comes to reading romance I’m going to be drawn more so to books of certain niche in this genre… that is if they are done well. Just like Flat-Out Love, Flat-Out Celeste was done so very well. I am always amazed when writers write characters who have difficulty relating to/understanding/expressing feelings and emotions and when they do it in a way that retains the characters humanity and vulnerability I am truly impressed. I just loved Celeste to pieces. She absolutely stole the show in Flat-Out Love and I’m so happy that Jessica Park decided to tell more of her story. Celeste’s leading man, Justin, was no slacker himself. His energy and awkwardness was absolutely adorable. I do enjoy how Park writes characters who are not the typical alpha male assholes that we all do love so very much and yet they balance their geek factor and masculinity and confidence wonderfully well. So yeah, read it!!!
