Published by Entangled Teen Crush
Publication Date: June 16, 2015

Synopsis: 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.

Although this book is a part of a series, you do not need to have read the others. I think that my thirteen year old self would love this book. This book reminded me a lot of How To Lose A Guy in Ten Days. You have the main guy who has entered into a bet to make the girl fall for him, and the girl who's determined to make the main guy look like a fool. It's not a bad read, it's just not for me anymore. It's cute and has all the classic trappings of a preteen/teen romcom. It's just filled with the usual cliches that come with these types of books and films that I'm not a fan of anymore. 

Strengths/Likes:

1) It's a quick and easy read. If you're looking for a feel-good book this book has what you're looking for. 

2) I'm a huge sucker for love. Even though I thought that the story could be better developed, I did believe that the couple had a legitimate connection and spark. 

Weaknesses/Dislikes:

1) There is a lot of telling instead of showing in the writing style. I would have preferred if the book was longer and the author took more time to develop all of the characters and the plot instead of filling in the gaps instead of directly telling me. 

2) Why doesn't anyone ever just come out and say what's bothering them? Why do people bottle everything up and let their assumptions get the better of them? There were several times in this book where I wanted to yell at Daisy, "JUST TELL HIM WHY YOU HATE HIM!" Can someone explain to me why people instead of communicating jump to conclusions and make stupid decisions? This is a common plot device I've seen in so many books and it just drives me crazy!

3) As I said, there are a lot of cliche moments that when I wouldn't have minded when I was twelve or thirteen years old. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone but basically if you break down the classic romcom you'll find all of the typical aspects that are in all of them. 

Favorite Quotes/Moments: 

1) He fell to his knees in front of her and grabbed her hands. "What must I do to win you over?" He gave her a dramatic sigh. 

"Hmm... I'll have to get back to you on that. But I think a lot of groveling is in order." Her lips turned up into a beautiful smile that nearly stopped his heart. "You do know what groveling is, right?" 

"Yes."
