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.

Quick Reasons: is it just me, or is Daisy a huge brat?; the romance didn’t feel genuine; I wasn’t rooting for these two AT ALL; unfortunately, these butterflies were super frustrated; good father/daughter bonding moments; great focus on sibling relationships and Trevin’s family

If I said I enjoyed this installment as much as the last two, I’d be lying through my teeth. This book? Disappointed me. Big time.

I think the biggest reason for this was Daisy. Now, don’t go tearing my head off here—I did find the idea of a revenge plot entertaining at the start of this read. It promised something different for this series: a new sort of humor, a different spin on the fangirl backstory. A good laugh, if nothing else. BUT. Halfway through the read, Daisy was still whining and moaning and in general being a brat. And while I can get behind a good revenge plot ANY day (I mean, obviously, the well-written and amusing ones)…I cannot even with the bratty girls. This read would have been a lot more fun, if Daisy’s sole purpose throughout wasn’t JUST to get back at the boy who “hurt” her.

 

I also felt as if this particular couple came off less believable than the others we’ve been given so far. Obviously, part of this has to do with the revenge plot/bet portion of the story…but even during those moments where guards were let down and real emotions came into play, it didn’t read as sincere for me. I didn’t get the same type of butterflies from their interactions that I did during the last two books. They just didn’t ever really seem to connect. Or maybe I was so annoyed with Daisy, I couldn’t connect.

 

This was, however, still an entertaining read. I found myself giggling on several occassions, usually around Daisy’s EARLY pranks on Trevin (you know…the innocent ones. The ones that didn’t really hurt anyone) Also, the relationships and bonds between the boys were strong and clearly defined. We saw MUCH more of Nathan and Will in this book, which I loved—it gives me something to look forward to going in to the last few installments. And I loved the focus the author gave to Trevin and his relationships with his family—those moments really helped to make this book, in my opinion.

 

DF Quote2

Overall, this was a cute, amusing book…but I feel Daisy could have been written better. Also, the romance felt a bit too fake for my tastes. I still recommend to lovers of cutesy contemporaries, revenge plots, and movies like She’s All That. If you’re into those things, this is right up your alley!
