Flat-Out Matt

Author:  Jessica Park

Year:  2013
Publisher:  Self
Pages:  158

Goodreads Summary:
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.

I might  possibly have enjoyed this one better than Flat-Out Love if not for the skipping around it does. It follows the big chapters from Flat-Out Love from Matt's point of view and skips the smaller chapters. Regardless, I still loved getting Matt's POV and it made me love him all the more. This was a great idea for Jessica Park and she handled it beautifully. I love these books.
