Tia and Will’s lives get flipped upside down when they’re voted Yearbook’s Biggest Flirts in this sassy novel from the author of Endless Summer and The One That I Want.

Tia just wants to have fun. She’s worked hard to earn her reputation as the life of the party, and she’s ready for a carefree senior year of hanging out with friends and hooking up with cute boys. And her first order of business? New guy Will. She can’t get enough of his Midwestern accent and laidback swagger.

As the sparks start to fly, Will wants to get serious. Tia’s seen how caring too much has left her sisters heartbroken, and she isn’t interested in commitment. But pushing Will away drives him into the arms of another girl. Tia tells herself it’s no big deal…until the yearbook elections are announced. Getting voted Biggest Flirts with Will is, well, awkward. They may just be friends, but their chemistry is beginning to jeopardize Will’s new relationship—and causing Tia to reconsider her true feelings. What started as a lighthearted fling is about to get very complicated…
Biggest Flirts is just what I needed from Jennifer Echols. I had so much fun reading this book and I am so happy that this is part of a companion novel/trilogy. I've basically read almost all of Jennifer Echols's books and I have to say that ever since Such A Rush.. I haven't enjoyed any of her newer books until I read Biggest Flirts 
We have Tia here, who is a senior in high school and basically someone who lives in her own world. Her dad works nights and sleeps through the day and her older sisters moved out so she basically lives on her own. She's known as a party girl and that's what we witness in the opening chapters of the book. Tia partying hard, drinking, and hooking up with new guy Will. However Tia is more than that, and we get to find the little pieces of herself that she hides from everyone else as we read on. She's in the marching band and really takes it seriously however she hates taking responsibility of anything and tries to get away from any position that would give her any sort of responsibility. She is also very smart but always hides that by acting all flirty and hooking up with anyone. I felt sorry for her.. I really wanted to understand her and sometimes she frustrated me but at the same time I pitied her. Tia's family life is obviously a mess and I was very interested in finding out how she came to live like that with her father. 
I like the whole idea of the book, with each title being a different senior title. Tia along with Will get voted Biggest Flirts and that's after they hook up and then Will moves on and starts semi-dating someone else. Things got awkward fast and I found it hilarious that whenever Tia and Will are together they always end up close to each other or touching and everyone around them always screams "GET YOUR HANDS OFF EACH OTHER". I cracked up so much reading that. I know I mentioned this is a ton of fun, and it is, but this is more mature YA material than typical mature. Also, it isn't only fluff, we truly get invested and feel for Tia. I just wanted her to not hide herself and reach her full potential! I loved her two other girlfriends and I can't wait to read their own stories through books two and three. I definitely recommend Biggest Flirts to all the contemporary fans and if you still want convincing then check out my video review of it where I just gush gush and gush about how great it is.

  6. Finally! After reading Echol's recent books last year, I really thought she lost her touch. I didn't even requested this one, but I feel so good after reading your review! The story sounds very fun and I'm glad that it isn't all about teenage drama. I'm definitely going to check this one out this summer! Thanks for the rec, Juhina! Great review =)
