Description from Goodreads:

Franny's supposed to be working this summer, not flirting. But you can't blame her when guys like Alex and Harry are around. . . .

Franny Pearson never dreamed she'd be attending the prestigious Mansfield Summer Theater Program. And she's not, exactly. She's working for her aunt, the resident costume designer. But sewing her fingers to the bone does give her an opportunity to spend time with her crush, Alex Braverman. If only he were as taken with the girl hemming his trousers as he is with his new leading lady.

When Harry Cartwright, a notorious flirt, shows more than a friendly interest in Franny, she figures it can't hurt to have a little fun. But as their breezy romance grows more complicated, can Franny keep pretending that Harry is just a carefree fling? And why is Alex suddenly giving her those deep, meaningful looks? In this charming tale of mixed messages and romantic near-misses, one thing is clear: Flirting might be more trouble than Franny ever expected.

My Thoughts:

      The Trouble with Flirting by Claire LaZebnik is an absolutely adorable, fun, lighthearted, and perfect for summer romance. Franny is sweet, caring, and judgmental enough to make her seem realistic. As for Harry and Alex they are both talented cuties and make the book enjoyable. Love triangles these days are a dime a dozen, but it is refreshing to read about one where both of the guys are actually good guys! As for the other characters, they were just as awesome. There is someone in there for everyone to relate to. There was the needy girl, the beautiful/mean/flirty girl, the pretty girl who is fun and nice to everyone, the girl who is awesome at everything but is insecure, the cool gay guy, the flirty hot guy, the cute shy guy, and the normal girl. The theatre atmosphere was a great setting. It could have been played up a little more in the book (Shakespeare can make anything better). The best thing was I kept guessing how the book/relationships were going to work out and I was WRONG! I love when that happens. If you are looking for a great summer read that is romantic, light, and fun check this book out. I give this book a 4 STAR rating.
