Saying yes has always come easy for Fallon. Now, as Renita Pizzitola’s steamy, poignant Crush series continues, winning her dream job means saying no to the guy she wants the most.

Between all the parties and random hook-ups, Fallon Carr is this close to flunking out of college. But her internship working with pediatric patients means the world to her—especially since, at the end of the summer, one lucky intern will be offered a paid position. Determined to leave her bad reputation behind, Fallon even takes a bet that she won’t sleep with anyone from work. But there’s one little catch. . . .

Not only is Cade Ryan the hottest guy Fallon has ever laid eyes on, he’s a therapy dog handler who volunteers his time to visit kids at the hospital. So when he starts pursuing her, Fallon can’t believe her bad timing. The thing is, Cade is different. He’s not like the college guys who see her as a one-night stand, or the high-school boyfriend who took a part of her she can never get back. Cade genuinely wants to spend time with her—and not just between the sheets.

Fallon won’t let her growing feelings for Cade get in the way of her dreams. Besides, no guy can break down the walls she put up long ago. So what’s the harm in a little flirting? It’s not like she’s falling in love. But she may have seriously underestimated how complicated things can get when the perfect guy falls for her first.

Just a Little Flirt was an adorable addition to Renita Pizzitola's new adult series, Crush. I loved going back to visit her characters. Although, I must say that this was a side of boy-crazy Fallon that I was not expecting... Just a Little Flirt showcased a slow-building romance between Fallon (a secondary character we met in the first book) and Cade Ryan. Fallon is determined to be on her best behavior in hopes of scoring a sought after position with the hospital after her summer internship is over. It doesn't take long before her willpower begins to crumble under the lustful eye of sexy Cade. While his patience is wearing thin, Cade waits for Fallon to let her guard down before he makes his move. And by then, all bets are off...

I had a lot of fun reading Just a Little Flirt. It was just as fun-loving as the previous book was. Fallon still had her hysterical side, especially when she relentlessly teased Cade. If you go back to my review for the first book, Just a Little Crush, you'll see that I originally wanted her with Mason. I totally take that back. Don't get me wrong. Mason is a great character and I can't wait to watch him fall to his knees for a girl (hopefully soon), its just that Cade was the perfect match for her. He's patient and kind. He knows when to push her buttons and when to let Fallon take the lead. And not to mention he's also a little sneaky. I loved watching them first become friends and then work their way towards falling in love. Such a fun book to enjoy on a lazy Sunday afternoon, which was when I read it. I have a feeling that Mason's story will be just as delightful (and hopefully from his perspective). 

Renita Pizzitola is the author of New Adult contemporary romance and Young Adult fantasy. When not writing, she can be found feeding her caramel macchiato addiction and reading just about anything she can get her hands on. She lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband and two children.
