Synopsis via Goodreads:

Tia and Will’s lives get flipped upside down when they’re voted Yearbook’s Biggest Flirts in this sassy novel from the author of Endless Summer and The One That I Want.

Tia just wants to have fun. She’s worked hard to earn her reputation as the life of the party, and she’s ready for a carefree senior year of hanging out with friends and hooking up with cute boys. And her first order of business? New guy Will. She can’t get enough of his Midwestern accent and laid-back swagger. 

As the sparks start to fly, Will wants to get serious. Tia’s seen how caring too much has left her sisters heartbroken, and she isn’t interested in commitment. But pushing Will away drives him into the arms of another girl. Tia tells herself it’s no big deal…until the yearbook elections are announced. Getting voted Biggest Flirts with Will is, well, awkward. They may just be friends, but their chemistry is beginning to jeopardize Will’s new relationship—and causing Tia to reconsider her true feelings. What started as a lighthearted fling is about to get very complicated…

Biggest Flirts is exactly what you expect a fun, easy, summer YA read to be. It has hot guys, popular girls, high school drama, and flirting. Lots and lots of flirting. Story begins when Tia and Will meet each other at the party and she knows that even though she's buzzing, she is very, very attracted to him. Being the new guy in a small town, Will is instantly getting a lot of attention and Tia gets jealous. Even though she doesn't want a boyfriend and doesn't see herself in a serious relationship, she cannot stop thinking about Will. He wants to be with her but being the "boy toy" on the side is not in his plans and he wants to move on.

This story was somewhat of a cliche where you have the boy and girl fall with each other and then live happily ever after. One thing that I found really interesting is Tia's character. She was so free and didn't really care what anyone thought. If she wanted a guy, she went after him without attachments and lived her life to the fullest. I love that whole "non-relationship" relationship where two people just flirt and have fun and it was awesome to read about it.
