Please note: This is not a full retelling of Flat-Out Love, but rather a companion piece with select FOL chapters, and it is meant for readers who know the story very well.*
You saw geeky, damaged, loveable Matt Watkins 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.
Author’s Note: Two chapters, The Sleepover and Keep Going, contain more mature content than Flat-Out Love (Keep Going, in particular), and were written based on reader demand. They wouldn’t have fit in well with the original Flat-Out Love, but given that this is a fan-driven companion piece, I think they work. While the content here is upped a bit, the scenes are tastefully done. (So, you know sorry to those who wanted lewd and graphic.)
When I finished Flat-Out Love I tried to move on to another audio book, but I was still so wrapped up in the story that I found I kind of missed it. You know that feeling when a book you really enjoyed ends and it feels like the characters kind of just died? I was missing it. So I downloaded the companion novella Flat-Out Matt. It adds more to the story by way of a couple of prequel chapters, a few chapters from Flat-Out Love retold from Matt’s point of view instead, and one really racy follow up chapter. It’s a little more adult than Flat-Out Love was, but I actually kind of enjoy a good love scene once in a while as long as it’s not over done-and this one was done very nicely.
It helped my heart a little bit to continue on to Flat-Out Matt and get a little more to the story before moving on.
