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 Thoughts

Daisy and the Front Man is the third novel of the Backstage Pass series and it is the first book by Rebekah L. Purdy that I’ve read. I’m always looking to read books by new-to-me authors and this book being part of a series that I adore is a bonus! I’ve fallen for this fun boy band series and was excited to read this book with the tag line “Hell hath no fury like a fangirl scorned…” I just knew it had to be good.

Like Daisy, I was stood up by a guy for a high school dance (so I could totally relate to her situation), but unlike Daisy, I didn’t seek revenge. So I wanted to know the lengths that she would go to to make Trevin pay. But there is a problem. Trevin is a nice guy and, with all of the things he does for Daisy, he makes it very easy for the reader to like him. And Daisy realizes this about him too and she starts to fall for him. But then there’s the bet . . .

I must admit the storyline of the bet didn’t really work for me. It never seemed that Trevin was taking action because of the bet. Daisy had her own reasons for not liking Trevin. The effort he put in to making Daisy like him was because he really wanted her to like him (because he liked her) - not because of some stupid bet with Ryder. This is the one thing that I didn’t like about the storyline because it just seems unnecessary.

I don’t want to stress on that too much because there are MANY things that I do like about Daisy and the Front Man like:

  • The funny pranks Daisy pulls to get back at Trevin
  • The moments that Daisy and Trevin were getting along - there’s this one courtyard scene that is all about the swoon!
  • Bodyguard Beau
  • Daisy rebuilding her relationship with her dad
  • The interactions between the band members. There seemed to be more in this book than in the others.
  • Oh and I love the cover too!
Daisy and the Front Man is a great continuation of this fun series. I love getting to meet the guys of Seconds to Juliet and the girls in their lives. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that they are a made up band and not a real band filling the pages of teeny-bopper magazines and “clogging” the airwaves with their bubblegum pop songs. I can’t wait to read the next one!
