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.
Daisy and the Front Man is the third book in the Backstage Pass series, a series that follows the five members of the boyband, Seconds to Juliet. I must say, I’ve fallen hard for this series & love that I’ve had the opportunity to read the books pretty much back-to-back. What I love most about this series is that each book is written by a different author, which has allowed me to revisit familiar authors and meet new. Daisy and the Front Man is written by Rebekah L. Purdy and is the first book that I’ve read from her.
Daisy wins a contest which allows her to pick a S2J member to attend homecoming with her. It’s no question which band member she will pick, so when the day comes, she’s anxiously awaiting the arrival of Trevin to take her to her high school homecoming dance, but when he doesn’t show, she’s devastated. A year later & still feeling the burn of Trevin standing her up, she finds out she gets to spend the summer with her dad, who happens to be a bodyguard for S2J. Daisy doesn’t think twice about whether or not she will go, but immediately starts thinking of ways to get her revenge.
Trevin is a the oldest of the band and at the age of 18, has the responsibility of making sure the other guys behave. When the daughter of one of the body guard joins them on tour for the summer, Trevin is immediately taken back by how she acts around him. He can’t figure out what he did to make this girl so made, but he is determined to change her mind about him.
Trevin is a genuinely nice guy. I immediately found myself liking him and how he treated Daisy. However, the premise of the bet he makes with fellow bandmate, Ryder, I wasn’t a fan. It was obvious though (to me) that his actions weren’t based on this bet with Ryder. I felt he truly cared about Daisy and wanted to make her happy. There were times I even forgot a bet was involved unless it was mentioned because it was obvious that Trevin really liked Daisy.
Aside from the bet, there were many, many things I loved about this book in the series. This book was funny. Daisy begins to pull pranks on Trevin as part of her revenge, but of course, he only blames Ryder, the prankster of the band. I also loved that Daisy was able to rebuild the relationship with her dad, Beau. She’s always thought that men in her life would leave, especially since she has rarely seen her dad since her parents divorce, and losing her grandfather a year ago. Being able to spend the summer with Trevin who hurt her, but is trying to prove to her he is a good guy, and being able to see her dad in a new light, really helped her to overcome that fear.
There is so much I love about this book and the series in general. I truly cannot wait to read the next in the series. If you haven’t read these books yet, I highly recommend that you do. Especially if you had/have a thing for boybands. Each book will leave you swooning & wishing S2J were a real band.
four out of five stars
