I want to thank Entangled Teen for supplying me with a copy of this book to read and give an honest review. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my review or opinion. I have been hooked on this series from the beginning. I love the theme of rock star and ordinary girl meet and romance blossoms. It's what many young girls' dreams are made of. So to watch it play out across the page is not only fun, but fulfills a girlhood fantasy of mine! Daisy has a strained relationship with her dad, who happens to be a bodyguard for the one and only Seconds To Juliet. And, while Daisy has worshipped this band from a far for so long, her heart was also crushed by one of their members. So when Daisy's mother ships her off to hang with her dad for the summer, she has to face those demons. The reader starts out with a lot of sympathy for Daisy and a true understanding of her wanting to take revenge on those who have hurt her. She comes across the page as independent and fierce, and I love that. She's also nowhere near perfect, which I find totally endearing because so many of the girl characters written these day scream perfection (a trait I find it hard to connect with much of the time). Trevin is the oldest member of Seconds to Juliet. He's the one they all look up to. The one who keeps them in line. It's a lot of pressure. And what his manager says goes, as long as he wants to keep his music career (because it's what he wants more than anything else in the world). While the title of the book would have you thinking he was forefront in the group, really he strikes me as more of the glue that holds the band together, and the one that everyone falls back on. You can feel his angst when it comes to making sure the guys in the band live up to the expectations of their fans. I love that Trevin is sweet and endearing. When Trevin and Dasiy are thrown together, things change for Trevin. He feels a pull between her and the band, one that is not easy to balance. Little does he know he inadvertently hurt her before he even knew her. Its fun to watch the romance between these two blossom, but at the same time they are both so weary of the other's motives. You route for them throughout, even with the teen angst they throw from the pages of the book. The romance is sweet and unassuming. I like Purdy's writing. All the books are told in third person, which often has me fighting to connect with the characters. And, in all honestly, I really do think these books would work better if you really had the first person point of view. I don't see a need for the third person as there is nothing we can't learn about the characters through doing dual POV in this way. But the third person works well enough with these books to keep me interested and wanting to continue reading. I can see how it also might make them more consistent, since author's voices can vary so much more in first person (and every book in this series is written by a different author). Overall I truly enjoyed this story. Thought not my favorite of the series, I found it easy to get through and I really was routing for the happily ever after in the end. I like that these books don't disappoint in this respect. Anyone who grew up worshiping a band or band member will understand Daisy and her fascination with Trevin and Seconds to Juliet. Lovers of Jennifer E. Smith and Stephanie Perkins will find themselves enthralled with the Backstage Pass series!

My Thoughts: This is my third Entangled Crush novel, and let's just say it's not going to be my last. I'm really enjoying the Backstage Pass series and meeting all the guys in the band. After reading Mia and the Bad Boy, I knew I had to get my hands on the rest of this series ASAP. Daisy isn't too happy about tagging along with her dad on the Seconds to Juliet tour. She won a contest before to have Trevin escort her to homecoming, but he stood her up last minute and she's never forgotten. Once she's there, she realizes she has the chance for revenge. Unfortunately for Daisy, Trevin places a bet to get her to fall for him. She doesn't make it easy at first, but then she realizes her revenge could include leading him on. Somewhere along the way, they are discovering the other isn't as bad as they originally thought. Daisy and the Front Man was a super sweet novel! Both Daisy and Trevin were amusing together, and so adorable. Not to mention all the other band mates--I can't stop giggling over all the humor throughout. I can't wait for the next Backstage Pass novel, and to see what else Rebekah L. Purdy has in store. My Rating: Very Good

Daisy and the Front Man is the third book in the Backstage Pass series, a series that follows the five members of the boyband, Seconds to Juliet. I must say, I’ve fallen hard for this series & love that I’ve had the opportunity to read the books pretty much back-to-back. What I love most about this series is that each book is written by a different author, which has allowed me to revisit familiar authors and meet new. Daisy and the Front Man is written by Rebekah L. Purdy and is the first book that I’ve read from her. Daisy wins a contest which allows her to pick a S2J member to attend homecoming with her. It’s no question which band member she will pick, so when the day comes, she’s anxiously awaiting the arrival of Trevin to take her to her high school homecoming dance, but when he doesn’t show, she’s devastated. A year later & still feeling the burn of Trevin standing her up, she finds out she gets to spend the summer with her dad, who happens to be a bodyguard for S2J. Daisy doesn’t think twice about whether or not she will go, but immediately starts thinking of ways to get her revenge. Trevin is a the oldest of the band and at the age of 18, has the responsibility of making sure the other guys behave. When the daughter of one of the body guard joins them on tour for the summer, Trevin is immediately taken back by how she acts around him. He can’t figure out what he did to make this girl so made, but he is determined to change her mind about him. Trevin is a genuinely nice guy. I immediately found myself liking him and how he treated Daisy. However, the premise of the bet he makes with fellow bandmate, Ryder, I wasn’t a fan. It was obvious though (to me) that his actions weren’t based on this bet with Ryder. I felt he truly cared about Daisy and wanted to make her happy. There were times I even forgot a bet was involved unless it was mentioned because it was obvious that Trevin really liked Daisy. Aside from the bet, there were many, many things I loved about this book in the series. This book was funny. Daisy begins to pull pranks on Trevin as part of her revenge, but of course, he only blames Ryder, the prankster of the band. I also loved that Daisy was able to rebuild the relationship with her dad, Beau. She’s always thought that men in her life would leave, especially since she has rarely seen her dad since her parents divorce, and losing her grandfather a year ago. Being able to spend the summer with Trevin who hurt her, but is trying to prove to her he is a good guy, and being able to see her dad in a new light, really helped her to overcome that fear. There is so much I love about this book and the series in general. I truly cannot wait to read the next in the series. If you haven’t read these books yet, I highly recommend that you do. Especially if you had/have a thing for boybands. Each book will leave you swooning & wishing S2J were a real band.

I had the pleasure to receive “Daisy and the Front Man” by Rebekah L. Purdy for review. It is the 3rd book of the Backstage Pass series, but I can honestly say that it can be read as a standalone novel without problems. And I believe except for small mentions of the persons that probably have been the main characters of the first to books you will not get to much spoilers. (if you can ignore the fact that the ending must have been a happy one). I choose this book fully knowing that it will be heavy on the “cliché” side and would most probably have a happy ending – but I guess this is no big surprise when you read the Blurb – so it’s no spoiler. The writing is flawless and the story is told fluent. The author brings the reader near to the thoughts and dreams of a teenager. And while it is logical that a lot of stuff seems to be to good to be true – the reader will accept it as it has to be a part of a “feel good” novel. Most of the story did feel really good when you take the age of the characters into consideration. Although there were a few things that I could not relate to, as even in a fictional story all those parts that relate to reality should remain “real”. Example the part with the hair dye… anyone ever trying to dye his/her hair will agree that it is not possible to dye dark (especially thick Asian hair) from black to full blond within the time period of one - short hair – hairwash. Still in total I enjoyed this book and I will probably take a look into the first books as well as the probably following ones, because the authors writing style is really good. And I assume that it is again just me being my natural critical self. So please readers – Enjoy this book as a nice sommer/beach read …

4 stars Daisy and the Front Man was such a fun, sweet and entertaining read. I was drawn in from the first page, couldn't wait to read how these two would ever get together =) Daisy and the Front Man is the third book from the Backstage Pass series, I've enjoyed all the books and I'm looking forward to reading Will's book next in Anya and the Shy Guy

Originally posted on my blog: Tangled Up In Books I received a copy of this book, from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. In no way did this sway either my review or my rating! I've had a very love/hate type of experience with this book and I'm pretty conflicted on how I feel about it now that I've finished. On one hand it made me laugh, swoon and even tear up a bit. Yet on the other hand, well if I'm being honest, I wasn't feeling it and had moments that I wasn't sure I wanted to go on. I fell head over heels in love with the first two books in this series. But that's the problem when you have multiple authors contributing to a single series. Sometimes it works very well and others it kind of doesn't. Everyone has their own style and so there's that chance of a lack of consistency. So while the first two books were seamless and perfect and they flowed together as if they were coming from the same person, this one was more like a loose annoying thread that you tug and tug on until you realize it's come free and started to unravel and come apart from the rest. I took major issue with two events in the very beginning of this book and it really set this negative tone over the rest of my reading experience that I just couldn't shake. First of all for all people concerned in this story, Trevin Jacobs basically humiliates Daisy in the prologue by standing her up for homecoming. It's very public. We're talking news and everything. And yet as the actual chapters start her mother tells her she's taking off to Italy with her boyfriend for a few months and she was going to be spending the summer with her dad. Which ties into my second issue with the book... Conveniently, Daisy's dad just so happens to be the bodyguard for Seconds to Juliet. Really? First, what mother in their right mind would send their teenage daughter off to tour with a band after one of it's members broke her heart basically for the entire world to see? I just do not buy into that at all. But even more perplexing was the fact that her bodyguard absentee father would not only be okay with it but he actually says the line, "You'll be living every girl's dream this summer." As he's leading her over to the tour buses to meet the guys. *Crickets* It was all just way too convenient. Way too easily fit into place. Girl gets humiliated wants revenge and the opportunity is just handed to her to have access to seeking it. Rough start? Yeah. You could say that. Like I said though it wasn't all bad. There were moments when I was cracking up from all the banter. Not just between Daisy and Trevin but with the rest of the guys too. So it had its moments that had me really pulled in. So what kept me reading? I think what I actually liked most about this book was the fact that we finally get more of Will and Nathan. The two guys who up until now haven't really made appearances in the books. In Daisy and the Front Man though, both Will and Nathan seem to form a real bond with Daisy and so you get to actually see them really interact with not only Daisy but the rest of the guys from S2J as well. Now my thoughts are more like I'm looking forward to Will and Nathan's books as opposed to what I had been thinking which was to refer to them as those other two guys in the band. Sorry Will and Nathan! And when I gave it a chance the relationship between Daisy and Trevin was pretty sweet, when it wasn't frustrating and way too easy and convenient. In the end I'm glad I made it all the way through because it did have it's moments. I think I've just been so excited for Trevin's book because I've really liked him up to this point. So when it started off so rough for me it was hard to shake that disappointing feeling. I wanted so much more for him because he's like the S2J glue and a really great character. This just wasn't that more that I wanted. Hopefully I'll have better luck with the last 2 guys books. Thanks to Entangled Publishing for the opportunity to read and review this book!!

I am really loving the Backstage Pass Series, they do not disappoint. Daisy and the Front Man is the third book in the series where we meet Daisy Morris and Trevin Jacobs, who are reunited by a leap of faith once again. When Daisy Morris finds out that she is going to be spending summer with her dad, she is not too thrilled with the idea especially when her dad was supposed to be working for the Seconds to Juliet band that summer as their bodyguard. But what was supposed to turn into a terrible summer for her, became the perfect setting for her revenge. For what everyone did not know was that Trevin completely humiliated her by standing her up for homecoming and now it was payback time. What she was not expecting was to find herself completely falling for the guy that failed her before. Trevin Jacobs is used to having the attention of a every teenage girl in the world, but when the outspoken Daisy Morris arrives to meet them on tour, he doesn't know what to think of her. He immediately senses the hate radiated from her and he is willing to do anything to change that. When one of his bandmates bets him to make Daisy fall in love with him, he just couldn't say no. He soon finds himself doing a lot of things to get Daisy to like him, never expecting to finding himself in a middle of an understanding between what he did in the past and the girl he unexpectedly has falling in love with.  From the characters to the setting, Rebekah L. Purdy did a great job describing the events that tranpired throughout the book. I liked the overall concept that it fit really well with the characters' personalities. Daisy is outspoken and smart, whereas Trevin can seem to be the tough one, but he is a softy in the inside and that makes the story that much more enjoyable to read. After winning the prize of taking any of the band member to homecoming, Daisy picks Trevin, but on the day she gets a signed picture of him apologizing that he cannot make it to the dance. The press was there to cover the story, but they left with a completely new story after filming Daisy be humiliated in front of all of them. Now after all this time, she has promised to do the impossible to humiliate Trevin just like she did to her. We can all guess her reaction when she finally got to see Trevin only have him not recognize her at all. That made things a lot worse for her, and that's when the story takes off. As the two of them start to get closer, the more she wishes she could stop before it is too late, but a twist in the story makes it impossible for her to stop and for Trevin to actually tell her how he really feels. The ending was my favorite part as it brought everything together very well. Overall, I highly recommend this book, and the entire series. If you love boy bands with handsome band member then this is the book for you. :)  *ARC provided by Entangled Teen in exchange for an honest review.*

Great read! The last place Daisy Morris wants to be for her summer break is on a tour bus with S2J! After front man Trevin Jacobs caused her ultimate humiliation in front of her entire school by not showing up as promised for the prom, she have vowed to hate him forever! Trouble is, he's a really nice guy and giving him the cold shoulder gets harder and harder! This was very well written and I really enjoyed the characters. The story moves along at a great pace as well. Overall a very entertaining YA read that I definitely recommend.
