BLOG TOUR REVIEW - Just A Little Flirt (Crush #2) by Renita Pizzitola


Just a Little Flirt
Crush # 2
By: Renita Pizzitola
Releasing March 31, 2015

Saying yes has always come easy for Fallon. Now, as Renita Pizzitola’s steamy, poignant Crush series continues, winning her dream job means saying no to the guy she wants the most.

Between all the parties and random hook-ups, Fallon Carr is this close to flunking out of college. But her internship working with pediatric patients means the world to her—especially since, at the end of the summer, one lucky intern will be offered a paid position. Determined to leave her bad reputation behind, Fallon even takes a bet that she won’t sleep with anyone from work. But there’s one little catch. . . .

Not only is Cade Ryan the hottest guy Fallon has ever laid eyes on, he’s a therapy dog handler who volunteers his time to visit kids at the hospital. So when he starts pursuing her, Fallon can’t believe her bad timing. The thing is, Cade is different. He’s not like the college guys who see her as a one-night stand, or the high-school boyfriend who took a part of her she can never get back. Cade genuinely wants to spend time with her—and not just between the sheets.

Fallon won’t let her growing feelings for Cade get in the way of her dreams. Besides, no guy can break down the walls she put up long ago. So what’s the harm in a little flirting? It’s not like she’s falling in love. But she may have seriously underestimated how complicated things can get when the perfect guy falls for her first.

I really enjoyed this second book in this series. I liked the chemistry between Fallon and Cade, they just seemed to be made for each other. While Cade is a hottie, he doesn't come across as arrogant and is actually very down to earth and unassuming. 

Fallon is doing what she can to move past her recent history and she is trying to keep her professional life just that and doesn't want anything to distract her from landing the paid position from her current internship. But we know that love can sneak in when you least expect it. 

Now, while I really enjoyed this story, there are a few spots that I wish had been handled differently: (1) The situation with Fallon's ex-boyfriend. What was his purpose for his hooking up with who he did, to get back at Fallon for some reason? (2) Who was Claudia's boyfriend (or ex-BF)? I wish that arc of the story had been explored more. I also liked the majority of side characters, Fallon's dad is pretty hilarious; her mother though, not so much. Cade's roommate Sean is a decent character, but I'm really hoping that we get a book about Mason soon. He needs his own HEA.
