About the book:
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.
Totally cotton candy reading! (5 stars)
As with a lot of things in life, I came in a bit late to the Backstage Pass series. I was never into boy bands growing up but for some reason I just couldn't resist jumping into this series anyway. I love music—honestly, who doesn't?—so I often find myself enjoying romantic reads featuring characters who play it and DAISY AND THE FRONT MAN wound up being no exception.
When Daisy Morris is stood up for homecoming by the front man of her favorite band, Seconds to Juliet, she's humiliated. But when she finds out her bodyguard dad whom she'll be spending the summer with is working for S2J she sees an opportunity to have her revenge. What ensues is a fun beachy read that's sure to satisfy your sweet tooth for romance that's fluffy and lighthearted. There's a certain every-girl quality to Daisy that I think most YA readers will love and I was thrilled that Trevin was Korean, such a nice change of pace!
Since this was my first Backstage Pass series read, I was occasionally left feeling I had missed something important by not reading the first two but it wasn't bad enough that I feel you couldn't read these out of order. DATFM is a warm, guilty pleasure type read that I think will make you grin if the plot appeals to you at all. I would definitely recommend it!
