Title: FLAT OUT CELESTE
Author: Jessica Park
Release date: May 22, 2014
Whether you were charmed by Celeste in Flat-Out Love or are meeting her for the first time, this book is a joyous celebration of differences, about battling private wars that rage in our heads and in our hearts, and—very much so— this is a story about first love..
For high-school senior Celeste Watkins, every day is a brutal test of bravery. And Celeste is scared. Alienated because she’s too smart, her speech too affected, her social skills too far outside the norm, she seems to have no choice but to retreat into isolation.
But college could set her free, right? If she can make it through this grueling senior year, then maybe. If she can just find that one person to throw her a lifeline, then maybe, just maybe.Justin Milano, a college sophomore with his own set of quirks, could be that person to pull her from a world of solitude. To rescue her—that is, if she’ll let him.Together, they may work. Together, they may save each other. And together they may also save another couple—two people Celeste knows are absolutely, positively flat-out in love.
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!!!
