Front Man

Author: Rebekah L. Purdy

Release date:  06/16/15

About the book:

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.

Excerpt:

She was pretty. And it was still
bothering him that she’d been so cold for no reason. “Trust me, if I wanted to
nab that girl, I could.”
“Is that so?” Ryder crossed his arms
at his chest, watching Trevin closely. “Want to prove it?”
“What do you mean?” Trevin tensed.
Shit. Where was he going with this?
“I bet you can’t make Daisy fall for
you by the end of the summer.”
Trevin snorted. “Seriously?”
“Yeah—but let’s make this fun. How
about if I win the bet, you need to quit being LJ’s little bitch and telling on
me every time I sneak out or do something. You know, make it easier for me to
hang out with Mia.”
Trevin swallowed hard. Fuck. That
meant giving up some of his control, which meant it could end with the band
breaking up. And that was his worst nightmare. The last band LJ had managed had
broken up. He didn’t want the same thing for S2J. But did he want Ryder
thinking he was a punk?
“And what would I get if I won?”
Ryder leaned against the wall, eyes
intense. “How about I let you take the writing collaboration with Pierce
Mishler? You’re the one who wanted to write with him to begin with…”
“You’d give up a chance to work with
him?” This was what Trevin had been waiting for. So far he’d been allowed to
write exactly one song on their albums, so this could be a huge break for him.
And Pierce was one of the best out there.
Ryder had been in the recording
studio messing around after one of S2J’s sessions, and Pierce happened to hear
him. He’d liked Ryder’s style enough to ask him to jam out for a while. And of
course LJ, being who he is, made sure to jump in and make arrangements for them
to work on something together. He probably figured it’d keep him on Ryder’s
good side. However, Trevin would’ve given his left eye to collaborate with
Pierce. He’d always been a huge fan. And now Ryder was offering him his dream
in a nicely wrapped package.
But…could he really string Daisy
along like that? It’s not like it’d have to be permanent—she’d only be there for
the summer, anyway. Damn, he wasn’t the type to lead a girl on like this. It
was one thing to go on a few dates with someone while on tour—but this, well,
it didn’t seem right. The thing was, he couldn’t exactly pass up this
opportunity to work with Pierce. And…it might not be too bad spending time with
Daisy. She was pretty, and he was sure if he could get under that icy exterior
of hers, she might not be too bad to hang out with.
“Sure,” Ryder said. “So, how about
it? Or are you going to wuss out?”

Jeri’s Review …

I had
the pleasure to receive “Daisy and the Front Man” by Rebekah L. Purdy for
review. It is the 3rd book of the Backstage Pass series, but I can
honestly say that it can be read as a standalone novel without problems. And I
believe except for small mentions of the persons that probably have been the
main characters of the first to books you will not get to much spoilers. (if
you can ignore the fact that the ending must have been a happy one).

I choose this book fully knowing that it will be heavy on the “cliché” side and
would most probably have a happy ending – but I guess this is no big surprise
when you read the Blurb – so it’s no spoiler.

The
writing is flawless and the story is told fluent. The author brings the reader
near to the thoughts and dreams of a teenager. And while it is logical that a
lot of stuff seems to be to good to be true – the reader will accept it as it
has to be a part of a “feel good” novel. Most of the story did feel really good
when you take the age of the characters into consideration.

Although
there were a few things that I could not relate to, as even in a fictional
story all those parts that relate to reality should remain “real”. Example the
part with the hair dye… anyone ever trying to dye his/her hair will agree that
it is not possible to dye dark (especially thick Asian hair) from black to full
blond within the time period of one – short hair – hairwash.

Still in total I enjoyed this book and I will probably take a look into the
first books as well as the probably following ones, because the authors writing
style is really good. And I assume that it is again just me being my natural critical
self.

So
please readers – Enjoy this book as a nice sommer/beach read …
