Keep your boyfriend and your most valuable guest from trying to kill each other. (oops)

Celeste Tippen can't imagine a more perfect summer. Her boyfriend, Travis, has a job at her family's resort, which means lots of quality couple time. Unfortunately, she forgot about Nick Saunders, the hot son of the resort's wealthiest customers. Every year, Nick flirts with Celeste, and apparently this year is no different, despite the boyfriend who's watching their every move. She assures Travis that hanging out with the resident bad boy is the last thing she wants to do. If only she believed that herself. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Renee Farrah
As Celeste spends her summer working at her parent's ritzy Palm Springs resort, her focus is primarily on keeping Travis and Nick from fighting over her. With the stress of keeping control of Travis, keeping the guests at Pinyon Ranch happy, especially their most loyal and influential customers—which just so happen to include Nick's family—and keeping her own father at bay, Celeste is in need of some support. Devon, her best friend who is usually always there to keep Celeste sane in times of drama, is in Scotland taking acting classes. This summer a prestigious film festival is being held at Pinyon and its guests include top-notch Hollywood types. It is the biggest thing to happen to Celeste's family and it could mean future success or ultimate failure. Faced with juggling the happiness of everyone around her and the success of her family's business, Celeste finally looks beyond designer labels, at least for a moment, to figure out what she wants. This is a teen beach-read romance novel where you spend your time waiting for Celeste to catch up to the evitable, that she is with the wrong guy. It does have some cursing and scenes of underage drinking. Reviewer: Renee Farrah

    Summer Love

    Celeste thinks her summer will be horrible, spending it all without her boyfriend. It will give them a little time to test out the long distance relationship, which might be a good thing since he's heading to college in the fall. But when Travis pulls a prank at graduation, he's left to deal with the consequences - which have him working at Celeste's family resort. She's gearing up for the perfect summer with her boyfriend until she remembers the summer guests. There's one summer guest in particular, Nick. Last summer they flirted all season and might have hooked up once or twice. When he arrives, Celeste makes sure to tell him about Travis, but that doesn't really stop Nick from flirting with her. Celeste loves her boyfriend except when he's being a jealous idiot. Travis is furious about Celeste buttering up to Nick. But she can't help it - it's part of her job. Will this be a summer to remember for Celeste, or one to forget?

    I loved this book. It's a great summer romances that makes you feel the heat of the sun and it's filled with drama, boys, and having a good time. The covers of Hailey Abbott's books are always eye catching and fun. Although the cover of Flirting with Boys doesn't really match the story or the characters.

    One of the things that sort of took away from the book was Celes

    One of the things that sort of took away from the book was Celeste's boyfriend, Travis. Sure, he's the so-called `bad boy' and is supposed to do things that good boyfriends don't do, but there were a few times when I found him extremely annoying and wondered why Celeste wouldn't just tell him off or get rid of him completely. Even at the big climax of the story, when everything is falling apart, you really want Celeste to wake up to the fact of the kind of guy Travis really is and the truth about Nick. I have to say most of my favorite scenes are between Celeste and Nick, especially when she's forced into helping him plan his own party. Celeste Tippen should be having her dream summer. Thanks to fate, her best friend Devon's summer plans of spending two months at a prestigious acting school in Scotland have fallen through and Celeste's boyfriend Travis going to be working at Pinyon Ranch too--thanks to a little incident involving a stolen golf cart from the resort. Instead her summer's turning into a nightmare as she finds herself playing referee between Travis and Nick, her summer flirtation for the last few summers. If that wasn't bad enough, Celeste finds herself having to spend more time with Nick than she ever planned. If you like fast-paced and fun contemporary reads, then I would recommend Flirting With Boys as a great summer read. You could easily pack this book and take it to the beach or pool and finish it in a couple of hours.

    Could have been so much better

    I really wanted to love this book, but I found myself hating it. First of all I think her dad was a big jerk. He treated her more like an employee than a daughter. Then I found Celeste to be a big brat. She was so mean to her boyfriend Travis. She got mad at him for getting jealous but he had all right since she was always thinking of kissing Nick. As for Nick he never gave me that feeling I love getting from books. I love falling in love with the main guy instead I found him obnoxious and boring. This book just did not do it for me.

    A good beach read, but nothing more.

    If you are in the mood for a fun, flirty, beach read look no farther. Not much else can describe the book other than a good summer book to read when your in the mood for romance.

    Celeste isn't looking forward to spending the summer apart from her boyfriend of almost a year, Travis. But after Travis pulls a senior prank at graduation, and gets caught, he has to work off his debt at Celeste's family's resort, Pinyon Ranch, where Celeste has to work every summer. Celeste realizes it could be the perfect summer...

    Until she remembers that Nick Saunders will also be there. Nick's family is one of the wealthiest customers at the resort, and Celeste's parents want her to do whatever it takes to make them happy. And Nick is intent on flirting with Celeste, even after she warns him that she has a boyfriend.

    Celeste spends the summer trying to make sure that the boys stay away from each other so no fights erupt, but Travis isn't happy that she has to spend so much time with Nick planning a party for the film festival.

    Something happens at the end of the summer and Celeste has to choose between the two boys..will it be Travis, her almost-a-year boyfriend, or Nick, the rich hottie?

    This was a cute teen romance story. It was a quick read. While there wasn't a lot of depth to them, I liked the characters. As I was reading the story, I found myself thinking "I'm so glad Celeste's with Travis" and other times I thought "Celeste should so be with Nick!"

    This would be a great beach read for an older young adult!

    It should have been longer. The ending was way to boring and it needs more action.
