    Ms Formidably Arranged Hair Tessaro has got a nice formula down pat Arty but insecure single female recovering from intense love affair usually involving some kind of bereavement has put her heart in the deep freeze and become a gutsy career minded expert in her field It will either be something menial but arts related eg box office assistant or something a bit glamorous but kooky in this case bespoke seductive knicker seamstress She will be distracted by some kind of wide eyed toyboy who may or may not turn out to be the man she really needs to get her heart out of that big chest freezer Throw in a practical rough and ready type who's a bit smelly and rude but will have curly hair or dimples a gay godfather or best friend some down to earth people from a grottier part of North West London some posh but wounded people who live in Kensington and of course a mixed up American lady or two Yes the author's American and at least she can laugh at herself as she made reference in this book to how you can identify American women by the fact their hair is fixed rigidly in place Mix well sit down with GT on hot sunny day in garden and devour in about a day Actually I am intrigued to know whether professional flirts like professional gigolos really do exist An unexpected flirting on a random day can indeed lift the heart

    We all know not to judge a book from its cover but sometimes it's hard to avoid Based on its bright visually appealing cover I expected to love this book Instead at page 80 I am abandoning it I tried to like this book really At about page 40 I went looking for Goodreads reviews to see if it got better What I found were very mixed reactions I persevered but by page 80 I still don't know who the protagonist The Flirt actually is well that's not exactly true I figured it out from other people's reviews There are a lot of main characters in this book and we are introduced to a new one almost every chapter I imagine this has to stop soon but it's left me uninvested in anyone's circumstances I kept waiting for something big to happen but so far it's almost all backstory There has been some setup for future happenings but by page 80 I'm not interested enough to find out what they are I feel pretty bad putting this book down Others have obviously enjoyed it If you don't mind lengthy setup maybe you will too

    I like how silly the concept of the story was and how the author herself was not taking herself seriously at allThe characters were crazy the stories behind them even so but i found that i was hooked I had to keep reading to find out I am looking forward to reading from her now

    This was a fun read I liked the idea of having men working as professional flirts where their whole job is to make women feel better about themselves The flirts all find romance but they have an interesting time of it along the way


  7. says:

    This was a light and goofy read that I really enjoyed I always love the characters in her novels Great beach read for sure

    The Flirt by Kathleen Tessaro is one of the most uniue and original stories I've ever read Tessaro's ability to play with characters and roundabout relationsconnections is top notch In creating a world through the profession of the Flirt a man who is paid to flirt with women to build up or dismantle whatever fantasy they wish to possess Tessaro introduces the reader to a ray of brightly shaded characters that struggle with the personal concerns of loneliness lovelessness heartbrokenness and social confusions In trying to find meaning to their predicaments characters such as Hughie Olivia Leticia Henry Rose Flick and the many others navigates the streets of London in search consciously or subconsciously of whatever they may or may not find Some eventually find peace and comfort what they finally discoveruncover though other characters like Arnaud and Valentine are not so lucky In being original and uniue Tessaro faces some shortcomings In introducing so many characters some characters do not add any depth or purpose to their supporting role like Sam and Ricki What is their purpose? Tessaro alludes to kindling between Sam and Leticia that goes no where And other than becoming Olivia's lover after Olivia discovers she's a lesbian what's the point of having Ricki around? And BTW Olivia and Ricki's love affair was so predictable Seen it a hundred pages away And there are red herrings all over the book for no reason How did Leticia become involved in the ploy against Olivia at the lingerie shop? That came out of nowhere and led to nowhere Another issue is that the book could have been one hundred pages shorter cutting out a lot of the filler sub plots the book is flooded with But all in all I really enjoyed The Flirt and it was a great introduction to Kathleen Tessaro I'm interested in reading her other works

    35 stars This book is silly and some of the characters and circumstances are ridiculous; however this author writes with a charm that I really enjoy


  10. says:

    Okay I admit 'Book of the Dead' sent me into a 'not exactly classic literature' binge And the next I picked up was this by an author I had read before Although it is not the greatest literature in the world Tessaro writes with undeniable charm there is something cheerfully old fashioned about her worlds even when they are distinctly modern This book about a good looking good hearted guy hired to be a professional flirt and the people around him this somehow effects is exactly that charming The characters are appealing the story uirky and engaging and although you're never in doubt the ending will be happy it twists a bit and surprises you as it gets there I wish there had been a bit of a tie up at the end some of the plot threads are left oddly unfinished but it was much fun to read
