Summary:

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…

 

My Thoughts: 

 

Want a book where there is intense hate with the most trending boy band? This book is for you. A heroine who is trying to plot her revenge, but just can’t? Then you should try this. When I came across this book, I did not expect to have a great time reading it. However, I was completely wrong.

The main characters Tevin and Daisy are opposites in almost every way. Tevin is the heart breaker and the guy every single girl wants. Daisy is a good girl and tries to keep to herself. They are both from different worlds. However, their worlds collide on a fateful prom night that Tevin was supposed to attend, which he never did. This leads to the start of Daisy hating Tevin.

The love/hate relationship between Daisy and Tevin is fun and enjoyable to read. There is a lot of snarky banter. I love the fact that Tevin is clueless as to why Daisy hates him. He tries to be nice to him, but she just rebuffs him. Poor Tevin. I felt sorry for him, but he kind of deserved it. However, I love that despite Daisy constantly rebuffing him in the beginning of the novel, he tries to win her affection. His courting techniques and trying to get her to hangout with him are remarkably sweet.I also liked that despite Daisy trying to fight her growing attraction she is not a push over. She keeps on trying to gain revenge and humilate him, but she doesn’t exactly.

The romance between the characters contains a lot of angst and hot chemistry. Purdy does a great job portraying the chemistry between Tevin and Daisy. There was enough when they met that you could figure it out. However, there wasn’t so much that it was scorching hot for no reason. I love the scenes building up to their first kiss. The kissing between them, boy, it is hot. They are seriously into each other.

The secondary characters in the book were overall great. However, there were a few who annoyed me. I liked the other band members. It was nice to see their girlfriends with them and kind of get a conclusion to their romances. Daisy’s Dad, Beau, annoyed me at some parts of the book. His over protectiveness and trying to break up Tevin and Daisy was one of things that annoyed me. I felt that he was acting childish. I mean who wouldn’t get annoyed when there father doesn’t keep in touch with them.

While there were aspects of the book that I liked, there were some issues with the plot. The beginning was enjoyable however the big battle and drama stuff came very predictable. The twist(I won’t say) of Daisy’s parents seemed to be very shallow and unsolved. In addition to Tevin and Daisy’s fight coupled with that, it was not logical and forced.

If the ending of the book was not so rushed, I would have given this book five stars. However, due to enjoying the book overall, it will receive four stars.
