Blog Tour and Giveaway: Dirty Thoughts (Mechanics of Love #1) by Megan Erickson @MeganErickson_ @AvonImpulse

23607749.jpgSome things are sexier the second time around

Cal Payton has gruff and grumbly down to an art...all the better for keeping people away. And it usually works. Until Jenna Macmillan—his biggest mistake—walks into Payton and Sons mechanic shop all grown up, looking like sunshine, and inspiring more than a few dirty thoughts.

Jenna was sure she was long over the boy she'd once loved with reckless abandon, but one look at the steel-eyed Cal Payton has her falling apart all over again. Ten years may have passed, but the pull is stronger than ever...and this Cal is all man.

Cal may have no intention of letting Jenna in, but she's always been his light, and it's getting harder to stay all alone in the dark. When a surprise from the past changes everything, Cal and Jenna must decide if their connection should be left alone, or if it's exactly what they need for the future of their dreams.

Where to buy DIRTY THOUGHTS

Brooke's Review:
I want to thank Avon Impulse for providing me with a copy of this book to read and give an honest review. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my review or opinion.

I have been a fan of Megan Erickson since the first few words I read in Make It Count. I love how she portrays her characters. None are perfect and all have such interesting backgrounds and trains of thought. I also like that she writes her books in third person. Normally I would have trouble connecting with third person characters. But Megan's books all have a very distinct voice and tempo that make it work for me. And I love that this series is a spin off of the Bowler series (because Max's story in that series was my favorite and these books are about his brothers!).

Jenna has returned to her home town after 10 years away. There is history for her there, mostly in the form of Cal Payton, her high-school sweetheart whose heart she broke all those years ago. So moving back brings a flood of memories for her and feelings she thought she had long since gotten over (but it seems she's really only buried them). Jenna intends to make a fresh start and believes she can live in the same town as Cal without having her past interfere. But boy is she wrong. I love how Jenna embraces her feelings for her past and what has happens all the while trying to move on with her future. At the same time, she struggles with what her heart really wants, even though her head tells her she shouldn't want it. Her conflict is real and emotional and something that I think so many woman can identify with at some point in their lives. Letting go is easier said than done.

Cal has built a wall around himself. He's resigned himself to being a bachelor and convinced his mind that this is the only way for him to live. He tries his hardest to believe that keeping a distance between himself and anything that resembles love will keep him safe. All those years ago his heart was broken by the one girl he could ever love. So when she moves back to town, and all his feelings come flooding back, it's hard for him to keep his mind separate from his heart. Cal is tough as nails and doesn't want to let anyone in. But Jenna has an effect on him he didn't think could ever resurface and his struggles come to the surface. I was totally endeared to Cal. I loved the way he was so protective of his family and those he loves. I especially love how hard he works, even in guarding his heart. But he's so much more than he appears to be on the surface, with a heart big enough to share with just about anyone. When life's complications rear their ugly head, he tries his hardest to embrace them, only to feel inadequate in the process.

Though the plot line of this book was easy for me to figure out (after the monkey wrench you didn't see coming was thrown in), I still enjoyed watching the characters grow and learn. I especially liked watching them open themselves up to each other, laying their hearts on the line even with the potential of heartbreak in the mix. Of course both Jenna and Cal have a hard time breaking down their walls, and there are those moments when you just want to hit both of them in their heads for their stubbornness. But Erickson does not disappoint with a happily ever after and a story that keeps you enthralled from the first pages you read.

Rekindled romances are so much fun. I love watching the characters struggle and grow and change and ultimately fall back in love. I love the happy feelings it induces. The intensity of such romances is only amplified by the history the characters share. Erickson does this trope well. This book is filled with sexy scenes, romantic gestures, tons of character growth and love. A wonderful addition to Ericsson's slew of romance books! Fans of Jennifer L. Armentrout/J. Lynn and Colleen Hoover will enjoy this romantic love story of two souls who were lost until they re-found love!

Excerpt:
CHAPTER ONE Cal Payton sighed and braced himself as the opening guitar riff of “Welcome to the Jungle” reverberated off the walls of the garage. Sure enough, several bars later, his brother, Brent, began his off-key rendition, which didn’t sound much different from his drunken karaoke version. Which, yes, Cal had heard. More times than he wanted to. He growled under his breath. Brent kept screeching Axl Rose, and if Cal wasn’t stuck on his back under this damn Subaru, he’d be flinging a wrench at Brent’s head. “Hey!” Cal yelled. There was a blissful moment of silence. “What?” Brent’s voice came from somewhere behind him, probably in the bay next to him at the garage. “Who sings this song?” “Are you kidding me?” Brent’s voice was closer now. “It’s Guns N’ Roses. The legendary Axl Rose.” “Yeah? Then how ’bout you let him sing it?” There was a pause. “Fuck you.” His brother’s footsteps stomped away. Then the radio was turned up, and Brent started singing even louder. Cal blew out a breath and tapped the socket wrench on his forehead, doing his best to tune out Brent’s increasingly loud voice. Cal vowed to buy earbuds and an iPod before he murdered his brother with a tire iron. He turned his attention back to the exhaust shield he was fixing. The customer had complained of a loud rattle when his car idled. Sure enough, one of the heat shields covering the exhaust system under the car was loose. It was an easy fix. Cal used a gear clamp to wrap around the pipe of the exhaust system to prevent the shield from making noise. It didn’t necessarily have to be done, but the Graingers were long-time customers at Payton and Sons Automotive. And they always sent those flavored popcorn buckets at Christmas. He and Brent fought over the caramel while their dad got the butter all to himself. He finished tightening the hose clamp onto the pipe and then banged around the exhaust system with the side of his fist. No rattle. He slid out from under the Subaru and patted it on the side. He squinted at the clock, seeing it was almost quitting time. Their dad, who owned half of the shop—Cal and Brent split ownership of the other 50 percent—had already gone home for the day. Cal put away the tools he’d used, purposefully ignoring Brent as he launched into a Pearl Jam song. Cal rubbed his temple, wiping away the bead of sweat he could feel rolling down his face. The back room had a small table and a refrigerator, so Cal made his way there to get a water. In the summer, they kept the large doors of the garage open, but the air was thick and humid today. The American flag outside hung like a limp rag in the still air. Cal wore coveralls at work and usually kept them on to protect his skin from hot exhaust pipes and any number of sharp tools lying around. But as he walked back to the lunchroom, he stripped his upper body out of the coveralls so the torso and arms of the clothing hung loose around his legs. Underneath, he wore a tight white T-shirt that still managed to be marked with grease and black smudges from the work day. In the back room, he grabbed a bottle of water from the refrigerator and leaned back against the wall. After unscrewing the cap, he tilted it back at his lips and chugged half the bottle. After the Graingers came to pick up their Subaru, he was free to head home to his house. Alone. That was a new luxury. He used to live with Brent in an apartment, and it was fine until he realized he was almost thirty years old and still living with his younger brother. He was tight with his money, which Brent teased him about, but it’d been a good thing when he had enough to make the deposit on his small home. It had a garage, so he could store his bike and work on it when he had free time. Which wasn’t a lot, but he’d take what he could get. If his father would quit dicking him around and let him work on motorcycles for customers here, that’d be even better. But Jack Payton didn’t “want no bikers” around, ignoring the fact that his son rode a Harley-Davidson Softail. Cal’s phone vibrated in the leg pocket of his coveralls. He pulled it out and glanced at the caller ID. It was Max, their youngest brother. Cal sighed and answered the call. “Yeah?” “Cal!” Max shouted. “You called me.” “What’s going on?” “Workin’.” “You’re always working.” Max huffed. Cal took another sip of water. “That’s what people do.” “Hey, I work.” “You play dodgeball with a bunch of teenagers.” Cal knew Max did a hell of a lot more than that at his physical education teaching job at a high school in eastern Pennsylvania, but it was fun as hell to get him worked up. Cal smiled. One of the first times that day. “Hey, I had to hand out deodorant and condoms to those teenagers this year, so don’t give me that shit,” Max said. “Condoms?” “Yeah, they’re kinda liberal here,” Max muttered. “Huh,” Cal said, scratching his head. They sure never handed out condoms in school when he was a teenager. “Anyway,” Max said. “Yeah, anyway, what’dya need?” “How do you know I need something?” “Why else do you call?” “I want to hear your pleasant voice?” Cal grunted. “I just wanted to know if you had any plans for your birth—ouch!” There was rustling on the other line, some mutters, and a higher-pitched voice in the background. Then Max spoke again. “Okay, so Lea punched me because she said I’m doing this wrong.” Cal smiled. Lea was Max’s fiancée, and she was a firecracker. “We wanted to come visit you and take you out for your birthday. All of us.” Max cleared his throat. “And you can bring a date too. If you want.” A date. When was the last time he’d introduced a woman to his family? Hell, when was the last time he’d had a date? “The five of us should be fine.” “So that’s okay? To celebrate? I mean, you’re turning thirty, old man.” Cal let the old man comment roll off his back. “Yeah, sounds good.” He paused. “Thanks.” Max seemed pleased, chattering on about his neighborhood and how he was enjoying being off work for the summer. Cal drank his water and listened to his brother ramble. Max hadn’t always been a happy kid. Cal had tried his best after their mom left the family shortly after Max was born. Their dad was pissed and bitter and immersed himself in working at the garage. So as the oldest brother, Cal scrambled to hold the reins of his wild brothers. He hadn’t done such a great job, he didn’t think. His brothers survived in spite of him, not because of him, he was sure. Brent was still a little crazy, and it had taken Lea to straighten Max out in college. Cal tried not to dwell on his failure and instead appreciated that at least they were all alive and healthy. It was why he valued his own space so much now. His alone time. Because he’d been a surrogate father at age six, and he was fucking over it. Although, by the time he hung up the phone with Max and slipped his phone back into his pocket, he had a warm feeling in his gut that hadn’t been there before his brother had called. He was flipping the cap of the water in his fingers and finishing the last of the bottle when Brent poked his head in the back room. “Hey.” Cal raised his eyebrows. “Someone’s asking for you.” Cal tossed the empty bottle in the trash. “The Graingers?” “Nope, they just came and got the Subaru and left. This is a new customer.” Cal threw the empty bottle in the recycling bin, turned off the light to the back room, and followed his brother out to the garage. “We’re closing soon. Is it an emergency? Are they regulars?” He pulled a rag out of his pocket and began to wipe his dirty hands. He thought about washing them first in case this customer wanted to shake hands. Brent didn’t answer him, didn’t even look at him over his shoulder. And that was when a small sliver of apprehension trickled down his spine. “Brent—” His brother whirled around and held his arm out as they walked past a Bronco their dad had been working on. “I think it’s better if you take this one.” Cal squinted into the sun and when his eyes adjusted to the light, her legs were the first thing he saw. And he knew—he fucking knew—because how many times had he sat in class in high school staring at those legs in a little skirt, dreaming about when he could get back between them? It’d been a lot. His eyes traveled up those bare legs to a tiny pair of denim shorts, up a tight tank top that showed a copious amount of cleavage, and then to that face that he’d never, ever forget as long as he lived. He never thought he’d see Jenna MacMillan again. And now, there she was, standing in front of his garage next to a Dodge Charger, her brunette hair in a wavy mass around her shoulders. Fuck. Okay, so admittedly Jenna had known this was a stupid idea. She’d tried to talk herself out of it the whole way, muttering to herself as she sat at a stop light. The elderly man in the car in the lane beside her had been staring at her like she was nuts. And she was. Totally nuts. It’d been almost a decade since she’d seen Cal Payton, and yet one look at those silvery blue eyes and she was shoved right back to the head-over-heels in love eighteen-year-old girl she’d been. Cal had been hot in high school, but damn, had time been good to him. He’d always been a solid guy, never really hitting that awkward skinny stage some teenage boys went through after a growth spurt. And now . . . well . . . Cal looked downright sinful standing there in the garage. He’d rolled down the top of his coveralls, revealing a white T-shirt that looked painted on, for God’s sake. She could see the ridges of his abs, the outline of his pecs. A large smudge on the sleeve drew her attention to his bulging biceps and muscular, veined forearms. Did he lift these damn cars all day? Thank God it was hot as Hades outside already so she could get by with flushed cheeks. And he was staring at her with those eyes that hadn’t changed one bit. Cal never cared much for social mores. He looked people in the eye, and he held it long past comfort. Cal had always needed that, to be able to measure up who he was dealing with before he ever uttered a word. She wondered how she measured up. It’d been a long time since he’d laid eyes on her, and the last time he had, he’d been furious. Well, she was the one who’d come here. She was the one who needed something. She might as well speak up, even though what she needed right now was a drink. A stiff one. “Hi, Cal.” She went with a smile that surely looked a little strained. He stood with his booted feet shoulder width apart, and at the sound of her voice, he started a bit. He finally stopped doing that staring thing as his gaze shifted to the car by her side and then back to her. “Jenna.” His voice. Well, crap, how could she have forgotten about his voice? It was low and silky with a spicy edge, like Mexican chocolate. It warmed her belly and raised goose bumps on her skin. She cleared her throat as he began walking toward her, his gaze teetering between her and the car. Brent was off to the side, watching them, with his arms crossed over his chest. He winked at her. She hid her grin with pursed lips and rolled her eyes. He was a good-looking bastard but irritating as hell. Nice to see some things never changed. “Hey, Brent.” “Hey there, Jenna. Looking good.” Cal whipped his head toward his brother. “Get back to work.” Brent gave him a sloppy salute and then shot her another knowing smirk before turning around and retreating into the garage bay. When she faced Cal again, she jolted, because he was close now, almost in her personal space. His eyes bored into her. “What’re ya doing here, Jenna?” His question wasn’t accusatory. It was conversational, but the intent was in his tone, lying latent until she gave him reason to really put the screws to her. She didn’t know if he meant, what was she doing here at his garage, or what was she doing in town? But she went for the easy question first. She gestured to the car. “I, uh, I think the bearings need to be replaced. I know that I could take it anywhere, but . . .” She didn’t want to tell him it was Dylan’s car, and he was the one who had let it go so long that she swore the front tires were going to fall off. As much as her brother loved his car, he was an idiot. An idiot who despised Cal, and she was pretty sure the feeling was mutual. “I wanted to make sure the job was done right, and everyone knows you do the best job here.” That part was true. The Paytons had a great reputation in Tory. But Cal never let anything go. He narrowed his eyes and propped his hands on his hips, drawing attention to the muscles in his arms. “How do you know we still do the best job here if you haven’t been back in ten years?” Well, then. Couldn’t he just nod and take her keys? She held them in her hand, gripping them so tightly that the edge was digging into her palm. She loosened her grip. “Because when I did live here, your father was the best, and I know you don’t do anything unless you do it the best.” Her voice faded. Even though the last time she’d seen Cal, his eyes had been snapping in anger, at least they’d showed some sort of emotion. This steady blank gaze was killing her. Not when she knew how his eyes looked when he smiled, as the skin at the corners crinkled and the silver of his irises flashed. She thought now that this had been a mistake. She’d offered to get the car fixed for her brother while he was out of town. And while she knew Cal worked with his dad now, she’d still expected to run into Jack. And even though Jack was a total jerk-face, she would have rather dealt with him than endure this uncomfortable situation with Cal right now. “You know, it’s fine. Don’t worry about it. I’ll just—” He snatched the keys out of her hand. Right. Out. Of. Her. Hand. “Hey!” She propped a hand on her hip, but he wasn’t even looking at her, instead fingering the key ring. “Do you always steal keys from your customers?” He cocked his head and raised an eyebrow at her. There was the smallest hint of a smile, just a tug at the corner of his lips. “I don’t make that a habit, no.” “So I’m special, then?” She was flirting. Was this flirting? Oh God, it was. She was flirting with her high school boyfriend, the guy who’d taken her virginity, and the guy whose heart she’d broken when she had to make one of the most difficult decisions of her life. She’d broken her own heart in the process. His gaze dropped, just for a second, and then snapped back to her face. “Yeah, you’re special.” He turned around, checking out the car, while she stood gaping at his back. He’d . . . he’d flirted back, right? Cal wasn’t really a flirting kind of guy. He said what he wanted and followed through. But flirting, Cal? She shook her head. It’d been over ten years. Surely he’d lived a lot of life during that time she’d been away, going to college, then grad school, then working in New York. She didn’t want to think about what that flirting might mean, now that she was back in Tory for good. Except he didn’t know that. “So, you think the bearings need to be replaced?” Cal ran his hand over the hood. From this angle, all she saw was hard muscle covering broad shoulders, shifting beneath his T-shirt. She shook herself and spoke up. “Yeah, it’s making that noise—you know, that growl.” He nodded. The only reason she knew was because she’d spent a lot of weekends and lazy summer afternoons as a teenager, lying in the grass, getting a tan in her bikini while Cal worked on his car, an old black Camaro, in his driveway. She’d learned a lot about cars and hadn’t forgotten all of it. She wondered if he still had that Camaro. “Want me to inspect it too?” Cal was at the passenger’s side door now, easing it open. “What?” He pointed to the sticker on the windshield. “I can do it now, if you’d like. You have to get it done by end of next month.” She opened her mouth to tell him sure, but then she’d have to give him the registration and insurance card, and then he’d know it was Dylan’s car. “No, no, that’s all right.” He frowned. “Why not?” “I just . . .” He opened up the passenger’s side door and bent inside. “What are you doing?” She walked around the car, just as he pulled some papers out of the glove box. She stopped and fidgeted with her fingers, because he’d know in three . . . two . . . He bent and tossed the papers back in the glove box. “I’ll have it for you by end of the day tomorrow.” He started walking toward the office of the garage. He had to have seen the name, right? He had to have seen it. She walked behind him. “Cal, I—” He stopped and turned. “Do you need a ride?” “What?” “Do you need a ride . . . home, or wherever you’re going?” She shook her head. “I’m going to walk across the street to Delilah’s store. She’ll take me home.” His gaze flitted to the shop across the street and then back to Jenna. He nodded. “All right, then.” She tried again. “Cal—” “You picking it up or your brother?” The muscle shift in his jaw was the only indication that he was bothered by this. “I’m sorry, I should have told you . . .” He shook his head. “You don’t owe it to me to tell me anything. You asked me to fix a car—” “Yeah, but you and Dylan don’t like each other—” That muscle in his jaw ticked again. “Sure, we don’t like each other, but what? You think I’m going to lose my temper and bash his car in?” Uh-oh. “No, I—” He shook his head, and when he spoke again, his voice was softer. “You didn’t have to keep it a secret it was his car. I’m not eighteen anymore. I got more control than I used to.” She felt like a heel. And a jerk. She wasn’t the same person she was at eighteen, so she shouldn’t have treated Cal like he was the hothead he’d been then. “Cal, I’m so sorry. I—” He waved a hand. “Don’t worry about it, Sunshine.” That name—it sent a spark right through her like a live wire. She hadn’t heard that nickname in so long, she’d almost forgotten about it, but her body sure hadn’t. It hadn’t forgotten the way Cal could use that one word to turn her into putty. He seemed as surprised as she did. His eyes widened a fraction before he shut down. “Anyway”—his voice was lower now—“we close tomorrow at six. Appreciate it if you’d pick it up before that.” He jingled the keys and shot her one more measuring look, and then he disappeared into the garage office, leaving her standing outside the door, her mind broiling in confusion. She should have known Cal Payton could still knock her off her feet.

Middle of nowhere. 

What's the new girl to do?

For Piper Marks, the answer is simple. She’s determined to have her photography rock the cover of National Geographic someday, and moving to Clarkton, Iowa for her last year of high school is not going to stop her. Even if her usual subjects have changed from bright lights and skyscrapers to fields, cows…and more fields. 

But when photographer at the local paper quits in a huff, she steps into his spot. Her new job keeps Piper busy capturing tackles, and zooming in on first downs and end zone dances, not to mention putting her directly in the path of varsity football star Les Williams IV. Her new friends warn her off, but she can’t resist the pull she feels toward this mysterious country boy. But this small town is keeping a secret, and it’s one that could destroy any chance they have to be together. 

It’s up to Piper to decide what to do with the distorted truth. Can she risk exposing her heart? It might be worth it, 'cause Les is about to change her world from black and white to fully saturated color.

Blog Tour: Dream of You (Wait for You #4.5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout @JLArmentrout @InkSlingerPR

    Dream of You - cover

Amazon US Kindle ** Amazon Paperback ** Amazon UK Kindle

Brooke's Review:
 I want to thank InkSlingerPR and J. Lynn for providing me with a copy of this novella to read and give an honest review. Receiving this copy for free has not altered or changed my review or opinion. I really love the Wait for You series. So given the opportunity to read about any of the characters, I jump on it. Since I loved Reece so much, and had a smidgen of Colton when I read Reece's book, I knew I'd want more. I'm so glad Lynn decided to write this novella and give it to us! Abby is probably one of my favorite Lynn characters in this series. She's serious but funny and totally endearing. I love that she is no nonsense and tells it like it is. Her honesty is infectious (and completely meshes with Colton's personality). Her experiences cause her some fear, but she is not afraid to face those fears head on when necessary. And she always does the right thing, even if she knows it may put her in danger. Colton knows what he wants. He doesn't beat around the bush. And, like Abby, his honesty makes him all the more sexy. I love that he's not afraid to talk about how Abby affected him all those years ago, even when she thought he didn't. It was wonderful to watch his protection over Abby. Of course this novella has that insta-theme in it but for me it was expected. With such a short story, it's hard to have the characters wait to show their attraction or see that they are meant to be together. And I was good with it because I just wanted a happily ever after, for which I know Lynn is known! The writing was easy to read and I was never bored or wanting to put this story down. The suspense infused into the story made it all the more interesting. There were definitely some heart clenching moments, both between the sheets and on the streets! Overall I really enjoyed this story, and the fact that Lynn even gave us a bit of the other characters we love so much from this series. I hope we get to see a bit of Abby and Colton in the future Wait for You stories! And, while it's nice to know the characters from the other books/novellas for this series, there is no need to read them in order to understand this storyline. Those who have read this series will enjoy this story, and those who haven't will also love how Lynn crafts her characters and plot!

Book Blast: Schism by Laura Maisano @MaisanoLaura


Schism (Illirin #1)
Release Date: 04/28/15
Muse It Up Publishing

Art therapy hasn’t done squat for Gabe Jones. A thousand sketches of his fiancée can’t bring his memory, or her, back to him. Nothing on Earth can. His past lies in another dimension, a world just out of sight.

Another student on campus, Lea Huckley, unknowingly shares Gabe’s obsession with the fourth dimension. The monsters from the other side attacked her parents and fled, getting her folks locked up in the loony bin. Proving this other world exists is the only way to free them. Lea and Gabe strike a deal to help each other, and together they manage to open a door to the world of Gabe’s true origin. She’d use him for proof—if she didn’t already care too much.

While Gabe tries to reconcile his feelings for Lea and his rediscovered memories of his fiancée, a much more sinister plot unravels. He uncovers his history just in time to become the unwilling lynchpin in a conspiracy to start a war. His memory holds the secret to the final riddle the would-be conqueror needs to get the upper hand. Gabe must protect the riddle at all costs, even if that means leaving Earth, and Lea, behind forever.

Synopsis:

Ten days ago, someone threw a brick through my front window. Nine days ago, someone keyed my truck right in my driveway. Eight days ago, someone spray painted the words ‘stay away’ across my garage door. That one really pissed me off. The jerk didn’t even have the courtesy to tell me what the hell I need to stay away from.
Each day it’s something new, a new piece of my property vandalized, and I’ve had enough.
Wanting a security system, something with cameras so I can catch the vandal, I let my best friend hook me up with her cousin, a private investigator with the PRG Investigations team.
His name is Vance and I’ve secretly been in love with him for three years. He’s a badass, a little scary, incredibly hot, and he’s never showed an interest in me … until now.

Blog Tour: Daisy and the Front Man (Backstage Pass #3) by Rebecca L. Purdy @RebekahLPurdy

daisy%20and%20the%20front%20man%20banner.jpg

25691985.jpgHell 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.


Brooke's Review:


I want to thank Entangled Teen for supplying me with a copy of this book to read and give an honest review. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my review or opinion.

I have been hooked on this series from the beginning. I love the theme of rock star and ordinary girl meet and romance blossoms. It's what many young girls' dreams are made of. So to watch it play out across the page is not only fun, but fulfills a girlhood fantasy of mine!

Daisy has a strained relationship with her dad, who happens to be a bodyguard for the one and only Seconds To Juliet. And, while Daisy has worshipped this band from a far for so long, her heart was also crushed by one of their members. So when Daisy's mother ships her off to hang with her dad for the summer, she has to face those demons. The reader starts out with a lot of sympathy for Daisy and a true understanding of her wanting to take revenge on those who have hurt her. She comes across the page as independent and fierce, and I love that. She's also nowhere near perfect, which I find totally endearing because so many of the girl characters written these day scream perfection (a trait I find it hard to connect with much of the time).

Trevin is the oldest member of Seconds to Juliet. He's the one they all look up to. The one who keeps them in line. It's a lot of pressure. And what his manager says goes, as long as he wants to keep his music career (because it's what he wants more than anything else in the world). While the title of the book would have you thinking he was forefront in the group, really he strikes me as more of the glue that holds the band together, and the one that everyone falls back on. You can feel his angst when it comes to making sure the guys in the band live up to the expectations of their fans. I love that Trevin is sweet and endearing.

When Trevin and Dasiy are thrown together, things change for Trevin. He feels a pull between her and the band, one that is not easy to balance. Little does he know he inadvertently hurt her before he even knew her. Its fun to watch the romance between these two blossom, but at the same time they are both so weary of the other's motives. You route for them throughout, even with the teen angst they throw from the pages of the book. The romance is sweet and unassuming.

I like Purdy's writing. All the books are told in third person, which often has me fighting to connect with the characters. And, in all honestly, I really do think these books would work better if you really had the first person point of view. I don't see a need for the third person as there is nothing we can't learn about the characters through doing dual POV in this way. But the third person works well enough with these books to keep me interested and wanting to continue reading. I can see how it also might make them more consistent, since author's voices can vary so much more in first person (and every book in this series is written by a different author).

Overall I truly enjoyed this story. Thought not my favorite of the series, I found it easy to get through and I really was routing for the happily ever after in the end. I like that these books don't disappoint in this respect. Anyone who grew up worshiping a band or band member will understand Daisy and her fascination with Trevin and Seconds to Juliet. Lovers of Jennifer E. Smith and Stephanie Perkins will find themselves enthralled with the Backstage Pass series!
