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.

Spending the summer with Seconds to Juliet is nearly every teenage girl’s dream, except for Daisy Morris. It might have been her dream come true months ago when she still had S2J’s posters hanging all over her room, but then Trevin Jacobs stood her up at homecoming. Now, since her mother is going to Italy with her new boyfriend, Daisy is stuck with her deadbeat dad all summer, who happens to be a bodyguard for her least favorite band. She’s determined to make the best of the situation and get her revenge. What she doesn’t know is that Trevin has his own agenda, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make her fall for him.

It was impossible not to feel a little sorry for Daisy at the beginning of this book. First of all, I found out how Trevin humiliated her. Then, she got stuck all summer with a man she barely knew even though they shared DNA. Even though I saw her side of things, there were moments when I wanted to hit her over the head. That being said, she had relatable qualities, a defining attribute for Young Adult Contemporary novels. The tricks that she played on Trevin were hilarious and kept the story interesting, making me wonder what she would come up with next. She had major trust issues, and falling for a boy she didn’t trust at all only complicated things.

I hadn’t learned a lot about Trevin in the first two books, so I didn’t know what to expect in his story. Shockingly, his character was more arrogant than I had expected. Having girls at his beck and call was not uncommon for the appointed leader of the band. When someone refused his advances, it was almost poetic—or should I say boy band?—justice. He had his charms, sure, but it wasn’t love at first sentence. I slowly fell for him, just like Daisy.

As I continue this series, I have mixed emotions about there being multiple authors. On the one hand, I like each boy and girl that the story focuses on having unique and separate voices; however, on the flip side, the other characters seem almost idiosyncratic from book to book. Now, that could be brilliant—how each boy and girl appears different in the others’ minds or a deep psychological thing about how others perceive us—but it was something that I had to get used to.

One amazing thing about these books is that you can read them in any order that you want. I can’t bear to read books out of sequence, so I’ve been reading them in order.

The Seconds to Juliet tour is still going on, and you still have plenty of time to join the phenomenon. Daisy and Trevin’s story is another great addition to this boy band saga, and you’ll be wanting to find out if all the S2J members find love or get lost in the spotlight.
