Book Review: Flirty Little Secret by Jessica Lepe

This isn’t just any book review . . . this author has been an incredible mentor to me!

Jessica chose me to mentor in #KissPitch in 2022, which ultimately led me to get a book deal for my debut (out May 7th). And, one big reason she chose me was because she also had a debut with some “You’ve Got Mail” vibes like mine. We also coincidentally both have a FMC named Lucy! Oh, and I also first started corresponding with my husband on social media, just like her character!

I recently finished an ARC of Jessica’s book, Flirty Little Secret, and it did not disappoint! I love that the characters feel like real people with real problems, and their chemistry makes for a very satisfying slow burn.

Ok, so here’s the review I would write even if I didn’t know the author . . .

If you want a heartwarming romantic comedy with characters who actually feel like real people, you’re going to want to grab Flirty Little Secret. This sweet and sexy story blends the charm of “You’ve Got Mail” with the quirky setting of “Abbott Elementary.”

At the center of this tale is Lucy Galindo, a shy school counselor battling anxiety and chronic depression who leads a bold, confident life online as the anonymous @TheMissGuidedCounselor. When her secret identity collides with her real-life crush on the new history teacher Aldrich Fletcher, it sets the stage for an utterly charming romantic entanglement.

Author Jessica Lepe has penned an electric will-they-won’t-they that reminds us it’s okay to be imperfect. A must-read for anyone seeking laughter, heart, and the courage to be vulnerable.
