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…

At A Glance

Just as cute as the first two books of the series.

The Good

This series is just so damn adorable. I always have a goofy smile on my face while reading these books. Daisy and the Front Man was no different. It was fun, flirty, and silly.

Daisy was such a spitfire. What happened to her in the beginning was so sad, but I like how she was all about revenge, not pitying herself. I am a sucker for a revenge story. Though she could be immature at times about the whole thing, I liked her snarkiness and how she gave Trevin a hard time when everyone else would kiss the ground he walks on.

It took some time for me to warm up to Trevin. He was too much of a good-ol-boy to really get me excited about him. He made some bad decisions but he always owned up to them, and I respected that. Daisy and Trevin together were perfection though.

This one had a simple but fun plot with enjoyable characters. A fast and easy read.

The Bad

These books were meant for a young audience, that’s for sure. Daisy and the Front Man was a bit immature for me in some areas. The characters acted like children, not teen/adults. I still loved them, but I rolled my eyes sooooooo many times.

The ending was a little different from the first two, but still very similar. So predictable. I am happy how things ended, but it would be cool to be more surprised or at least feel like the ending was unique and not a replica of the first two books.

The Snuggly

The romance was sweet, though the games these two played kept us from seeing them really have fun together. Very young adult sexually.

Final Thoughts

When you are looking for a fun, simple read, this is the series for you. I love books that make me smile. Those are rare. Even if this one wasn’t 5 stars, it was still very good. Recommended.


She screamed, stomping on them like they were an infestation of spiders. She glanced down at the signed picture once more and then tore it in half. He hadn’t even had the balls to call her. He’d known since yesterday he couldn’t make it, and he let her get all dressed up instead of sending her a letter, which was probably typed by his publicist or agent or someone. She’d bought a dress with money she didn’t really have—money her mom had helped her save to make tonight special. And he’d ruined everything. Her chest hurt so badly. Maybe there was something wrong with her that made all the guys want to stay away? Like she was un-dateable.

She stripped out of her dress and let it fall to the floor at her feet.  Wrapping her arms around her chest, she rocked back and forth, as if that would make it better. But nothing would. There was no point in going to Homecoming now. She didn’t have a date, not to mention she didn’t want to deal with Emma’s nasty comments all night.

Never again would she fall for any boy. Trevin Jacobs or otherwise.

“You, Trevin Jacobs, are going down.” At that moment, she had no idea how she’d accomplish this, but she’d dig deep and use the same determination that had won her the contest to begin with.

And when she did, Trevin Jacobs would wish he’d never screwed her over.

    These really are just fun (sometimes cheesy) escape reads and there’s nothing at all wrong with that! 🙂 Great review!

  2. Melliane

    Too bad it was predictable and for younger but in a whole it sounds ok. maybe not for me but thanks for the review!

  3. Jaclyn Canada

    It’s always good to have those fun, easy reads sprinkled throughout your reading lists. I’m so glad this one made you smile! Great review 😀

  4. Braine Talk Supe

    Yeah, I need to be in the right mood for this. It does sound sweet but juvenile romance just flies over my head now. Yet another sign of ageing.

  5. Lekeisha

    This is one of those books that I’d read on a rainy off day, and I just want to escape boredom. Just some sweet and cuddly to pass the hours. Great review!

  6. Red Iza

    I enjoy books that make us smile as much as the next girl, but I’ll probably need more maturity in my characters 😉 Thanks for sharing !
