<— I fell in LOVE with this book way back in 2011, when I first discovered the wonderful world of indie “new adult” romance. In fact, I read this one just days after my love affair with Travis, and while Travis was (and will forever be) my #1, I five-star loved this one, too! It’s SO good, so well written, so witty and the romantic tension is sweetly intense. And then… the twist!! *oomph!!!!* I spent another few days in a silly-sweet love haze after it, and this became one of my “Maryse Indie Classic Favorites”. 😉 Just check out my review and you’ll see! I’m assuming all of us have read this one by now, but if you haven’t, it’s a MUST READ!!! And now, we have TWO more books (Matt’s & Celeste’s) to enjoy!
Nickie: I recommended this book to one of my guy friends….he read it and fell in love. Now I can’t seem to find him any book that’s comparable to this (less erotica/YA). Every book I’ve recommended to him after this book is not as great according to him and he’s stuck on the characters and the author’s writing.
Zulma: I just finished this book and I loooved it!
Kristen: Oh love her soooo much!!!! flat out love and flat out matt my all time favorite re reads!!!!!
V: How good was Flat Out Matt? I cried almost the whole way through. Brilliant!
Sam: Flat Out Celeste by Jessica Parks came out yesterday. Loved Flat Out Love and Flat Out Matt.
Nicole: Yes! Love you. I didn’t even know this book was going to exist!!!!!! Loved this first 2, and Celeste is my favorite.
Sharon: Omg…had no idea she would have a book! Super excited.
About book #1:
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 Seagle 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.
