Blurb (from Goodreads):
Hell hath no fury like a fangirl scorned…

When Daisy Morris finds out she’s spending the summer with her dad, bodyguard for Seconds to Juliet—the hottest boy band around—she knows it couldn't be more perfect. But not because she’s a fan. Oh, no. Because ever since front man Trevin Jacobs completely humiliated her by standing her up for homecoming, Daisy is out for a little revenge. Yup, Trevin Jacobs is goin' down...

When one of his bandmates bets Trevin he can't make Daisy—the gorgeous but surprisingly ice-cold daughter of their bodyguard—fall in love with him, it’s a bet he can’t resist. Sure, Daisy won’t give him the time of day for reasons he can't understand, and her dad’s hell-bent against his little girl spending time with a superstar. But the terms are set, and Trevin is determined to make Daisy fall…hard.

But every front man should know never to trust a girl with a pretty face…

This Entangled Teen Crush book contains adult language, sexual situations, and seriously hot boys. It may cause swoony daydreams involving a certain super-cute front man.

“I bet you can’t make Daisy fall for you by the end of the summer.”

This was a YA contemporary romance featuring a cocky pop star.

I felt quite sorry for Daisy at the start of this book. The way Trevin had let her down and stood her up was awful, and the fact that he wasn’t even sorry about it was even worse! I did think that her little revenge plot was maybe a little immature though.

“You, Trevin Jacobs, are going down.”

The storyline in this involved Trevin making a bet with his band mates that he could get Daisy to fall for him. I mean really? Is this the most unoriginal storyline ever? I feel like I’ve read at least a dozen books where a similar bet is made, and it never turn out well! And again, Daisy’s likewise ‘revenge’ plot was likewise not a good idea.

“She didn’t understand how he could pull this nice guy crap now, when nine months ago he’d left her hanging.”

There was some romance between Trevin and Daisy, but I felt a little unsure about the whole thing seeing as they both seemed to have ulterior motives.

“She wrapped her arms around his neck as he pulled her closer. A spark flashed behind her eyes like fireworks exploding on a barge.”

The ending to this was fairly happy, and I was pleased that Trevin and Daisy got a happy ending.

6 out of 10.

  1. I thought this story was cute. But I loved the second book best so far. Reading Anya now and I'm really liking it. Great review!
