I was an avid reader of the Anita Blake books when they were supernatural thrillers but my interest tailed off when they changed to soft porn. It was almost as if Laurell K Hamilton was told to spice them up a bit and didn't know when to stop. I decided to give this one another chance based on the synopsis and was somewhat pleased to discover only one sex scene lasting only seven pages, but there again the story is only 155 pages long. On that note nothing much happens for almost the first fifty pages, I know this is aimed at a female audience who like a little more character interraction but pages devoted to Anita and her lovers chatting in a restaurant is just padding in my eyes. When the action does get going the writing is up to the usual standards and it was nice to see Anita operating on her own for a change. It would be even better to see her having an all new action adventure with no sex in it, how about a prequel? Back when she wasn't a promiscuous tart. The book is rounded out by a short section where Laurel explains how the story came about, shouldn't have bothered, doesn't add anything.

This book does not live up to the high standard of the first nine Anita Blake books. That said, it is refreshing to read about Anita's career as a necromancer again. With all the toyboys she's been getting lately we haven't heard too much about her work.

This is a short book, it took me about 2 hours to read. The plot did not strike me as being original - Anita has starred in far too many kidnap scenes in the past and brings nothing new to them now. The 'Tony Bennington' character reminded me forcefully of the Harold character in the Laughing Corpse.

Without spoiling the plot of this book for others, it pivots on the fact that men find Anita irresistable, yet she herself finds this hard to accept. Its getting somewhat tired and overworked as a format.

Disappointing, but mildly so.

This book is NOT full length - its more on the lines of a novella .(over 20 pages wasted on how the idea for the book was arrived at!!!!)
This should have been made clear to buyers .
The story has no depth and glosses over the characters relationships .
Would not buy without checking number of pages in future

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 7 Feb. 2010
Format: Hardcover
According to Merriam Webster, flirting is, " a: to behave amorously without serious intent; b: to show superficial or casual interest or liking."

So it's kind of hard to see why one of Laurell K. Hamilton's books would be called "Flirt."Unfortunately, the title seems to refer to Hamilton's plot -- the entire novella is a disjointed tangle of unrelated subplots, inner animals and "feeeeeeeelings" therapy. And, of course, yet more assurance that Anita is the Kindest Smartest Strongest Yet Wounded person EVER.

After rejecting a man who wants his wife raised as a zombie (no, there really isn't a good reason), Anita goes off to lunch with Micah, Nathaniel and Jason. The waiter is floored by how stunningly gorgeous Anita and Nathaniel are, and Anita unloads all her personal woes about her evil granny and evil stepmother, and how they were SO mean to her because she's short and black-haired. Try not to flood the room with your sympathetic tears.

And after rejecting another client (this time for a good reason), Anita encounters a pair of werelion thugs who threaten to harm her "sweeties" unless she comes with them -- and of course, they want to have sex with her. It turns out that one of her rejected clients is determined to have her do the animation for them... after she has the required graveyard sex with one of the thugs.

Not only is "Flirt" a very short novella, but it's very short on plot as well -- it feels like Hamilton just cobbled together all the things she includes in every Anita Blake book (prolonged talky wangsting, ardeur sex scene, new boytoy, new superpower) and hoped it would gel into an actual story. Surprise surprise: it doesn't.

This is not a stand alone book, i think it should of been in an anthology of stories as it is the thinnest and shortest book at only 177 pages.

Yes thats right 177 pages of rather large text if im honest, i have every single one of Laurells books and they take pride of place on my bookshelf, i honestly dont know what has happened to her as an author, its almost as if she cant be bothered to come up with any decent stories and its all soft porn from now on, i mean who cares about the stupid sex anyway, i want more basic anita necromancy and the suspense stories we got at the beginning with all twists and turns it made compulsive reading and quickly became my fav book anthology ever. Now ? not so much.

The story was ok, not great, and certainly not her best, and i only bought it now as it had dropped down to £3.50 and didnt feel as though i was getting ripped off.

The story itself as i mentioned was only 177 pages, read in 74 minutes, the rest of the book is an afterword and the 1st few pages of bullet.

Bullet is the next purchase for me, im hoping that's better..
