Date published: March 25, 2013
Matt is a junior at MIT. He’s geeky, he's witty, he's brilliant.
And he’s also very, very stupid.
When beautiful, cool, insightful Julie moves in with Matt’s family, why (oh why!) does he pretend to be his absent brother Finn for her alleged benefit?
It seems harmless enough until her short-term stay becomes permanent. And until it snowballs into heart-squeezing insanity. And until he falls in love with Julie, and Julie falls in love with Finn.
But … Matt is the right one for her. If only he can make Julie see it. Without telling her the truth, without shattering them all. Particularly his fragile sister Celeste, who may need Julie the most.
You saw Matt through Julie’s eyes in Flat-Out Love. Now go deeper into Matt’s world in this Flat-Out Matt novella. Live his side of the story, break when his heart breaks, and fall for the unlikely hero all over again.
Take an emotional skydive for two prequel chapters and seven Flat-Out Love chapters retold from his perspective, and then land with a brand-new steamy finale chapter from Julie.
So I read another couple books, then came back to this one. I figured that was enough time and I'd be okay.
There's some pretty intense moments in this one. Loads of feels. When it ended, I was elated. It was perfect. But then I just started crying once everything caught up. I was pleased with how things came to be, but seeing more into Matt - what he had been having to go through. It hurt my heart. He's so much more awesome to me now, as well.
I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoyed Flat-Out Love. It's a wonderful companion story.
