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. 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…
Boy bands and romance. Do I really need to say more to explain why I’ve been totally loving the Backstage Pass series? Every book I’ve read in the series I’ve loved and it was no different with Rebekah L. Purdy’s Daisy and the Front Man.
Last fall, Daisy Morris was completely humiliated after her favourite member of Seconds to Juliet, the hottest boy band, stood her up for homecoming. Instead of the best night of her life, all she got was a typed up generic letter and a signed headshot. Now, Daisy is getting ready to spend the summer with her absentee father…who just happens to be Seconds to Juliet’s bodyguard. And Daisy is determined to make Trevin Jacobs pay for what he did. As a member of Seconds to Juliet, Trevin is used to having girls fawning over him everywhere he goes. But his bodyguard’s daughter won’t even give him the time of day. So when one of his bandmates proposes a bet, suggesting that he can’t make Daisy fall involve with him by the end of summer, Trevin steps up to the challenge. But what starts out as a bet and a revenge mission, quickly starts to feel like something that can actually be real.
Boy bands are definitely among my weaknesses. And when you combine them with romance, I’m pretty much powerless. Which is why I’ve totally been loving Entangled Crush’s Backstage Pass series. And there’s also the added fun that each of the books in the series was written by a different author so it keeps things interesting. Which brings me to the latest book in the series, Rebekah L. Purdy’s Daisy and the Front Man. Much like the previous books in this series, Daisy and the Front Man was just fun to read. Whether it was the revenge plot, the bet between the boys or the romance, I was highly entertained the whole time I was reading. All that set against the backdrop of a music tour just makes it that much more fun. But at the same time, one of the things that this whole series, including Daisy and the Front Man, has shown is that there’s often a whole lot more going on behind the scenes than what the public knows. Sure, we can guess that it’s not all good times, but I always find it interesting to read books that show just how much more is going on. And this one definitely did that, showing how much of the characters lives get messed with by all the different people involved in the tour that are trying to get something from them.
I wasn’t sure how I felt about Daisy for a good chunk of the book. Every so often, I would hit a point where I would question why she was holding on so much to her grudge against Trevor. I could understand that she was embarrassed in front of everyone in her small town when he didn’t show up to take her to her Homecoming dance. But at the same time, it felt like some of her feelings towards him were a little extreme, even if sometimes I totally understood where she was coming from. So my feelings where Daisy was concerned were in a constant state of change. Until I started really liking her and then it was all good. And that probably had to do with how adorable she and Trevin were together, even if neither of them initially planned on anything real happening between them. And Trevin wasn’t entirely who I expected. I mean, yeah, I expected a certain amount of arrogance considering the guy is in a highly popular boy band, but there was so much more to him than that. I loved seeing his relationship with his family, and I wish I could have seen more of that because those moments were fantastic. But aside from that, I really enjoyed Trevin as a character, and as I’ve already said, him and Daisy were basically prefect for each other.
Rebekah L. Purday’s Daisy and the Front Man was a great addition to the Backstage Pass series. I really enjoyed reading all about the band’s front man and big brother, and I can’t wait to find out more about the two remaining members of the band.
