**Book Tour with Review** Flirting with Love by Clara Stone

GENRE : Mature YA contemporary romance

A Special Thank You to Lindee Robinson photography  for the teaser images and cover image.



Hudson and Blake Lovelly lead a charmed life—successful careers, loving family, beautiful 
home. Now, on the eve of their daughter’s birth, they’re counting their blessings. Life wasn’t always so generous . . .

Fifteen years ago, seventeen-year-old Blake Voss walked into Cranbrook Preparatory High to participate in the school year’s most-prestigious debate competition. She never expected to fall for the pretentious, golden-haired boy on the opposing debate team, and he never expected to be ensnared by the quick-witted prankster with a heart of gold.

Their mutual love for joking pretense soon leads them to pull their biggest prank yet--pretending to be in love. But when danger threatens, Hudson can’t conceal his growing affection. He’ll do anything to be with Blake, even if it means risking his heart to protect her.

They didn’t plan for their friendship to grow into a love story. But sometimes, all it takes is a little Hope.

This powerful companion to Forever Kinda Love tells the history of Hudson and Blake’s relationship. Laced with haunting emotion and beautiful sentiment, this is a tale about overcoming even the darkest moments, reminding us all to love more. Give more. Without regrets.

5 Star

This is the second book in the Lovelly series.  They can be read as standalones, but I recommend you read them in order.  We meet Blake and Hudson b in the first book, Forever Kind of Love. Blake and Hudson's story starts about 12 years before Forever Kind of Love.  i know this book started out as a novella and I'm so glad that it turned into a full length novel though.  I don't think a novella would have been enough for these two to get their story out.

Blake and Hudson meet at a debate competition in high school.  Blake thinks that Hudson called her team a nasty name, since he goes to a rich, private, prep academy and she goes to a public school on the wrong side of the tracks.  After the initial confrontation, a prank war breaks out.  Blake is awesome at the pranks.  I loved the itching powder!

Hope is Hudson's best friend and team mate, and later his match maker. 

Blake's best friend is Vickie, man does she go through a lot.  I'm not going to go into detail because I would hate to give anything away. 

To get back at Hope, Blake and Hudson decide to prank her by telling her that they are in a relationshop.  But what happens when neither of them are pretending?

The tragedy strikes!

"I'll do everything in my power to keep you safe baby girl.  I'll always protect you.  Always." 

I can't wait for the next book!  I am hooked.


Life’s. Little. Surprises.

The last thing seven-year-old Carrigan "Ace" Casper foresaw was an eight-year-old Heath Lovelly walking into her life the day her mother died. From that moment on, Heath sticks by her side, slowly becoming her strength, her confidant, and her entire world. What she doesn’t know is, she's his saving grace, too.

Ten years later, Ace is handed another crippling challenge that threatens everything in her almost perfect life. Only, this time, she doesn't turn to Heath, hiding the truth instead. But Heath knows Ace too well and won't back down easily. He's ready to do whatever it takes and will stay by her side until she accepts that their love is the kinda love worth fighting for.

Will he be her forever triumph or her unexpected downfall?

Two lives.

One story.

And an unexpected journey to falling in love.
