A Friendly Flirtation [Book Review]

Friends First #3
Christine Warner
Releasing February 15th, 2016

One kiss can change your life...

Allison Hall is fed up with being a social outcast. Even at the tech company where she works for her brother and his best friend, Jared, she's the invisible nerdy girl. What she needs is confidence—and that requires a makeover and dating tips. And she knows just the man to help…

Jared Esterly is shocked when Allison asks for his assistance and turns her down, knowing that her brother—his business partner and best friend, Nick—would kill him if he dated her, even if it is just for practice. But when Al’s attempt to make changes on her own fails spectacularly, Jared reluctantly steps in. Things heat up quickly, and soon lessons move from the salon to the bedroom.

When overprotective big-brother Nick discovers Jared is dating Allison, their friendship and business partnership sour. Allison, consumed by guilt, must make a choice: stay with Jared, even though that means ruining his friendship with Nick and possibly his career, or leave the one man who sets her on fire.

My rating: ✮✮✮☆彡

I've been reading more paranormal books lately, so I decided to take a break and sign-up to review this one.

The book started great and charming. I completely sympathized with Alison's wish to change. It's a terrible feeling to be invisible to everyone's eyes but her change of attitude in the next hour after her makeover was almost unbelievably fast. I get it that it was because of Jared's action but still it was barely two hours, and she's already full of confidence.

What probably annoyed me most isn't Alison's Flirty attitude but her desperation to get a boyfriend after makeover.

Honestly, it was really hard for me if I like this book or not. In one side, I love it yet there's also something that irritates me with the story. I can't point my finger on it since the author's writing made me excited while reading but also made me want to throw it away. I don't know it's a really confusing experience for me. However, it has a nice satisfactory ending that tip the balance and made me like the book more than hate.
