Received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This book was much better than the first in this series. Though this book is in a series it could be read as a standalone. The heroine wasn’t annoying and there wasn’t OTT drama. I will say that I wasn’t sure who the hero was in this book at first. I kept on thinking it would be Lucas but I was wrong. Livi has an open mind about starting university. She’s determined that her university years will be way different then her hig [...]
I liked this book but I just didn't love it. I found the heroine to be an incredibly frustrating main character. There were some things that were very obvious that she was completely oblivious to. I didn't like some of the decisions she made. I really liked Adam. I love the slow build-up in this story but really wish that I would've been able to like Livi a little more. I did really enjoy this authors writing and look forward to reading more of her books!**ARC provided in exchange for an honest [...]
I had a lot of fun writing Livi's story, and I hope you have fun reading it!
Livi is starting her first year of college after taking a year off after high school. She has turned her image around, trying to shake the band geek/nerd persona she had before. She knows she wants love and friends, but what is she willing to do to get them?I was expecting to get a new adult romance when I started reading this book, but I feel like it was more of a coming of age/growing up story. Livi learns about herself and what she really wants out of life, which just so happens to be a parti [...]
For a hopeless romantic, or if you like staying up way too late reading, or, if you love the slow falling in love romance, this is the perfect read. Another fantastic day-at-the-beach read! I'm not the hugest fan of the cover, because I think it makes it look like the book is fluff. But it's not! Once again, Rachel Morgan has written a fun, romantic read, that is well written, cleanish, and has a great message. I would describe this book as a coming of age story, as a young, first year college s [...]
Another sweet addition to the Trouble series. I must admit, Livi grated my nerves and I wanted to slap her for the most part, but I adored Adam and I'm intrigued to find out more about Andi, so on to book 3!
* I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. *I have read both of the author's previous books in this series and loved them, however, I think that I may love this one just a bit more (and possibly the next one even more, but hey, what can I say other than they are amazing). The author's words just flow and the story line is one that I think almost anyone can relate to. I feel like the author's description of both the characters and the setting make the reader feel as if the [...]
Thank you to Netgalley and Mark My Words Book Publicity for the ARC!You know, I think many people can probably relate to Livi's character - I know I certainly can! Growing up nerdy can be rough, but it's always tougher if you're self-conscious about it. That's why I love the age my daughter is at right now. She's ten, and she's a proud nerd! She's comfortable with who she is and what she likes, and I wouldn't have her any other way! I just hope she holds onto this confidence throughout adolescen [...]
Livi sees starting college as a fresh start. She'll no longer be labeled a "nerd" like in high school. So she ditches her superhero inspired t-shirts and opts for trendier threads. She stuffs her violin out of view and decides it's "not her thing" anymore. And, she succeeds with the friendship of Allegra and company. But, maybe choosing popularity over her true self might not be the smartest choice. For the most part I truly enjoyed The Trouble with Flirting. I definitely chuckled a lot and I ab [...]
Light-hearted and easy to feel a connection with this book! I think most girls and maybe guys (not a man, sorry y'all!) want to re-invent themselves sometime in life. Maybe college, high-school, new job, etc. This book takes that idea, adds some romance, funny scenes, tender moments, issues that many young adults face and creates a story that I loved!Very effective in creating this world that Livi lives in through descriptive words, dialogue and other characters. Her humorous situations [...]
I liked the first one in the series a ton, so I was excited to read this one. Sadly, I liked the first one better than this one for a couple reasons. The first and most important is that the cover would appeal to teenage readers and the content is too much for teens, in my opinion. There are incidents of drug and alcohol use, groping, language, and making out. I was expecting something a little tamer from the description of clean, contemporary romance. I guess clean is relative. The first book i [...]
Yet another stunner from Rachel Morgan. I eagerly await each new book from her and am never disappointed or let down. Somehow each one is better than the last! I cannot wait for the next one and will re-read the previous ones in the meantime - I need to get my Rachel Morgan literary fix! I recommend this book to everyone, whether you think you're a fan of young adult romance or not. Personally I've always considered myself to not be a fan of this genre at all, but Rachel Morgan proved me wrong. [...]
This book is short and sweet with likeable characters. I felt like Livi and Adam were well-developed and progressed emotionally and mentally throughout the book. The storyline was a bit expected and cliché, but since it was well written, I didn't mind as much. I don't love the book, but I don't hate it either. What it boils down to for me is that I feel it was too cliché and lacked real substance. It's a great book for a quick, enjoyable read, but don't expect more than that.
FunReview to comeContent: Some mild language, innuendo and one scene where a guy attempts to force himself on a girl at a party
This book is the second in the series but can easily work as a stand alone. It's Sarah's friend Livi's book. Livi is on a mission to lose the nerd status that plagued her in high school when she goes to college. Adam is trying to explain to her that she doesn't need to change herself and forget about her old hobbies like playing the violin. Of course things get even more messy when Adam breaks up with long distance and long time girl friend Jenna. Can Livi forget her need to be with the in crowd [...]
I really enjoyed this book. I still like the first one slightly better, but this one is great. I loved the slow burn romance, the cafe, the nerdy references, the friendships and relationships, and most of all the main characters growth. My only problem was that when she finally ends up with the right guy they go more physically than I would like from a clean contemporary. And I would have liked more resolution with some of the side characters, but that could happen in some of the other books. Ov [...]
I'm such a sucker for girl-and-guy-best-friend romances like these! So adorable.I loved how it was set in Cape Town.
I loved it. Very predictable, hence the 3 stars. But thoroughly enjoyed it. Could read this book again no problem!
This book was provided to me free for an honest reviewWhile this book is technically the second book in the series, it can be easily read as a standalone. Which is exactly what I did with no problems.The story itself is about Livi, who’s about to start University with the intention of redefining who she is. She has everything planned out, a sweet apartment with one of her high school friends, a new wardrobe and the motivation to shuck her old Harry Potter, Star Trek loving self. "Be cool, Livi [...]

The Trouble with Flirting by Rachel Morgan is book 2 in The Trouble series which takes place in Cape Town, South Africa. This is the first book I have read by Rachel Morgan who has written many books but it was this series that caught my eye.Alivia wants things to be different in university, indeed, she thinks can be different, recreate herself, and that is where the trouble starts. Instead of being the high-school nerd, she pictures herself running with the in-crowd and having a hot boyfriend t [...]
The Trouble with Flirting is the story of Livi and Adam, who were friends in high school (or the equivalent in South Afirca), who are now spending their first year in College. Both were labeled nerds in their old school, and Livi is determined to break out of the stereotype and become part of the popular crowd. Through it all, she comes to terms with who she really is, and who she really loves.If you like trendy romantic comedies, then this book is for you. For me, although the story was cute, t [...]
AHA! Once again, I was fooled by the pretty cover. Seriously, how many times am I going to let this happen to myself?? Sigh…Anyway, I had high hopes for this one. The plot seemed predictable and cutesy so I was really hoping the writing would give it the smooth sailing it would need. Alas, I was sorely disappointed.So from the get go it had me curious; who was the hero? Was it the gross-turned-hawt cousin Luke? Was it too-cool-for-school Logan? It certainly isn’t douche canoe Jackson. Hmm, a [...]
This is the second book in the Trouble series. It's Livi's story, and picks up at her first year of university.I loved all the Geek references in the book. The author has this gift for banter and great dialogue. I find myself sorting in laughter when I read her books, and this was no different. I especially love her texting conversations. And I totally loved The Piano Guys reference, even though she didn't mention their name until the extras at the end of the book.So if I loved so much, why only [...]
Book Review: The Trouble With Flirting by Rachel MorganPrior to 'The Trouble With Flirting' I read 'The Time of their Lives' by Maeve Haran about a group of sixty-something friends working out the new chapters in their lives, and Jane Green's 'Life Swap' involving two women in their late thirties looking for answers to the everlasting question 'is this it?' 'The Trouble With Flirting' however, couldn't be more different, returning to the very beginning of young adulthood; finishing at school, ga [...]
* I received this book from ebooksforreview for free for an honest review in exchange. *When I first started reading, I had to remind myself multiple times that this book was set in college not high school. The way the characters acted they seemed really immature and I couldn't imagine myself, or anyone else my age (college age) acting that way. I thought the entire book was going to be like this, not memorable, slightly annoying characters that I couldn't relate too. I thought it was just going [...]
More reviews at losttobooks Actual rating 3.5 After being contacted by the author earlier this year to read The Trouble With Flying, when I saw this book up on NetGalley I was excited to read it. I will admit that I don't think it was as good as the previous book, but it was still an enjoyable read.The Trouble With Flirting didn't really hook me to start with and it was only the fact that I've read an enjoyed this author's previous work that kept me reading. I hoped it was going to get better so [...]
4.5 stars! Livi wants to change her reputation and the first year of university is the perfect time to reinvent herself. In an effort to fit in with the popular people she changes her looks, her clothes, her likes and even, to a certain extent, her friends. And it works for a while…until she discovers that there’s more to life than being with the “in” crowd. This book explores her road from nerd to popular girl to someone who’s happy with who she is. And, lucky for us, there’s some r [...]
** Book received in exchange for an honest review **It's the first book I have read by Rachel Morgan and I've already downloaded book one to read more in this series. I think her writing is so refreshing and different in the sense that it's written how it is - if that makes sense.Livi has had a life like many people can relate too - the nerd/weird one/geek. you know all the names for not liking whats 'in' and when she heads to university with the goal of being accepted.Luckily for her, it works [...]
