"Daisy and the Front Man" [Backstage Pass Series, Book 3] by Rebekah L. Purdy

Author's Book Description : 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…

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! About a year ago, Daisy won a recycle contest and her prize was having Trevin (the front man for Seconds to Juliet) as her date for her high school’s homecoming dance. Well during the time Trevin was supposed to show up, she finds out that he’s not going to be there and instead gets an autographed photo of him, leaving her to be humiliated in front of her school for the rest of the year. Once summer arrives her mother informs her that she is going to be spending it with her father (who happens to be a security guard for Seconds to Juliet) while her mom visits Italy with her boyfriend. Being estranged from her father for a few years makes this time together awkward but she’s willing to take advantage of it to get back at Trevin for hurting her. However, Daisy soon learns that Trevin isn’t as bad as he seems. Yet is she willing to give up her revenge and drop her defenses to the one guy who has already hurt her?

As I loved "Mia and the Bad Boy" (Book 2), I guess I had high hopes for this novel. Too high of hopes it seems, as there were times when I wanted to give up. While I found Daisy and Trevin to be a good pair, with the ways they go about getting to know one another, Trevin’s bet, and then Daisy’s revenge plot made it hard for me to read through. Mostly because I’m not a fan of reading wishy-washy characters and both Trevin and Daisy are as wishy-washy as they come. Both start after one another because of false pretenses then because they both are “trying to stick to their plans,” they aren’t sure, if they believe their own feelings and if those feelings are accurate or not. In truth, I stuck to this novel because I liked the guys from Seconds to Juliet’s camaraderie, it hooked me a bit to see what antics Daisy was going to spring on Trevin next (I mean the cement and porta potty scene was quite funny), and its build up to "Anya and the Shy Guy" (Book 3). Yet, I am very happy I did stick to it because once everything “hit the fan” I liked Daisy, Trevin, and the plot a whole lot more. The ending was AWESOME!

I recommend this to those who are a fan of Ms. Purdy and/or a fan of this series! In addition, I think it could be read as a stand-alone novel so if you’re looking for a sweet YA rock star romance this might be for you too.

-- On a side note --
I was not a fan of Daisy's mother. I mean yes Daisy's parents are divorced. And yes the distance from Daisy father might not be all her mother's fault. But to not encourage the father-daughter relationship afterwards is just wrong! I say this because I grew up seeing it from both sides myself (being the daughter of a father who was never around and seeing my step dad try with his own kids). And no matter what the circumstances parents (if the parents are good people to begin with) should always encourage the relationship with the other parent. *shakes head* That just made me mad at the end of the novel. Sorry for ranting. =0P
