Hello sassy people! Today’s post is about Flirt by Adriana Locke! Thank you, Adriana Locke and Candi Kane PR for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review!
by Adriana Locke
WANTED: A SITUATION-SHIP
I’m a single female that’s tired of relationships ruining my life. However, there are times when a date would be helpful. If you’re a single man, preferably mid-twenties to late-thirties, and are in a similar situation, we might be a match.
Candidate must be handsome, charming, and willing to pretend to have feelings for me (on a sliding scale, as the event requires). Ability to discuss a wide variety of topics is a plus. Must have your own transportation and a (legal) job.
This will be a symbiotic agreement. In exchange for your time, I will give you mine. Need someone to flirt with you at a football party? Go, team! Want a woman to make you look good in front of your boss? Let me find my heels. Would you love for someone to be obsessed with you in front of your ex? I’m applying my red lipstick now.
If interested, please email me. Time is of the essence.

My Rate: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5
This was a super cute book, with nice amounts of steam, a surprisingly deep story and many funny moments. I loved the family setting, the friendship between the two, and also Brooke’s friendship with her best friend. I loved the overall light mood of the book and how funny it was at times (I also have now one of my all-time favorite “sex banter” scenes highlighted). I enjoyed this really much, the only bad points for me were moments that were too dramatic or too unnecessary (there were some points like that, in my opinion, at the conflict resolution, and in the beginning), but overall a great book.
Equality rate: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5
This book was overall neutral on the equality rate, gaining an extra point for how cute the male lead was and how independent the female lead was, and also about the deep subject of parent emotional abuse and mental health.
Adjectives and general thoughts: Funny, delicious, and cute. Deep and hot at the same time, some of my, now, favorite scenes are here. Well written, with one or another point that felt unnecessary, but overall a great book.

Bye sassy people!
- I know that some comments I make about decent guys on my posts are the bare minimum a guy should do, so no, they don’t deserve to be treated like gods for doing the minimum, but at the same time, I’ve read a lot of sexist books and I appreciate authors who make characters that can serve as role models and examples of how a decent guy acts and what a loving and respectful relationship looks like. I believe we should always encourage these authors and bring attention to the ones that still write sexist characters and stories.
- I make a lot of comments about sexism and healthy role models in books, but a lot of times these characteristics don’t make the book a bad book and definitely don’t make the author a bad author. Please never shame these authors and these books for these comments, I simply feel that we need to have awareness of the less than ideal situations some books bring us, and not use the romanticized problem as examples of what a relationship should be. Most of these authors are still amazing, and the content they write doesn’t reflect directly with their personal views and opinions. Always make sure to respect and be kind to everyone, even while criticizing their content.

One of my goals in analysing my readings was to talk about important topics, like feminist and consent, because literature, art and culture influence us, and I believe we should always encorage authors who talk about this topics.
