Miles Carlisle is every teen girl’s fantasy. His rugged good looks and exotic British accent have helped catapult his boy band, Seconds to Juliet, to super-stardom. But after two disastrous and very public breakups, Miles isn’t interested in dating just any girl; he wants The One. And the only girl he’s interested in is not only his best friend’s little sister―and off-limits―but won’t even give him the time of day…
As a kid, Aimee Bingham had a huge thing for Miles…until he made fun of her for always tagging along. Now that she’s outgrown both him and her pigtails. the prospect of spending two weeks on tour with the childhood crush who broke her heart isn’t exactly enticing. Except now Miles seems interested. Very interested. And no matter how hard Aimee tries to resist him, her crush is definitely making a comeback.
But everyone knows that falling for a heartthrob is a backstage pass to heartbreak…
At A Glance
A cute, light read.
If you are looking for an adorable read, you have found it. Miles and Aimee knew each other when they were young, which I think helped their relationship in the present grow deeper. Miles being in a hot boy band made things more interesting. I really enjoyed getting an inside look at a boy band. Who knows how accurate it was, but still, pretty cool.
Aimee felt a bit too young sometimes but I loved how passionate and emotional she was. She saw so much talent and fire in Miles that he couldn’t even see. She brought out the best in him with her light spirit and positivity.
Miles seems like a player at first, but we see much more to him as the story goes on. He has been betrayed many times from the ones who were suppose to care about him, but it was a long time friend who made him feel safe in the end. Someone he saw as a child until she showed up all woman. Aimee fast becomes Miles muse, and someone he can’t live without.
Nothing really pulled me into this story. It was good but plain.
The characters felt and acted juvenile. Some of their dialogue had me rolling my eyes. “Nut-burger.” <—Seriously? Just not sure if teenagers really talk this way.
Aimee and Miles were adorable together. I like how they took their time, didn’t rush into sex, but still played around. It felt real.
Nothing deep here, but a fun, light read is nice from time to time. I liked the boy band aspect, and there was a good amount of drama. Recommended.
“I don’t know if I’d call it a crush,” he finally said. “It’s more like, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you for the past five days. When I’m in a band meeting…” He kissed her eyebrow. “When I’m onstage.” He kissed the bridge of her nose. “When I’m trying to bloody fall asleep at night, that’s the worst. And the best.”
“Did you call me an assjacket again? I gotta say, it sounds like a compliment coming from you.”
