Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush


He never noticed her before, but now she’s all he can see…

Miles Carlisle is every teen girl’s fantasy. His rugged good looks and exotic British accent have helped catapult his boy band, Seconds to Juliet, to super-stardom. But after two disastrous and very public breakups, Miles isn’t interested in dating just any girl; he wants The One. And the only girl he’s interested in is not only his best friend’s little sister―and off-limits―but won’t even give him the time of day…

As a kid, Aimee Bingham had a huge thing for Miles…until he made fun of her for always tagging along. Now that she’s outgrown both him and her pigtails. the prospect of spending two weeks on tour with the childhood crush who broke her heart isn’t exactly enticing. Except now Miles seems interested. Very interested. And no matter how hard Aimee tries to resist him, her crush is definitely making a comeback.

But everyone knows that falling for a heartthrob is a backstage pass to heartbreak…

Aimee and the Heartthrob was a cute book.
I think that I would have enjoyed this more if the characters were a bit older, but I think that young Teenage girls will totally fall in love with Seconds to Juliet. Seconds to Juliet totally remind me of One Direction.
The characters…
I liked Aimee. There was nothing really special about here or anything, but I still enjoyed her character. I also liked Miles, but he really wasn’t what I was expecting. I figured he would actually act like a teen ya know, making sex jocks and all that jazz, but he didn’t. That’s how I would expect a boy in a boy band to act. And he seemed more like a little kid. As for the rest of the character I enjoyed them. I hope all of the guys from the band get a book. I also wish there was more of Miles mom in the book. She seemed cool. I just wish we would have got to know her. And as for Aimee’s brother. I also wish there was more of him in the book.
The Plot…
Well, I liked it and enjoyed the boy band and the main guy gets his best friends sister aspect. So I think that if that is something you would want to read then this book would be for you. Or at least that is what grabbed my attention anyways. I am a sucker for the best friend gets the guys younger sister.

Overall thoughts…
I enjoyed this book. It wasn’t something that wowed me or anything. The book doesn’t have any major plot twist or anything like that.
Recommended: yes! If you like cute books about a guy who falls in love with his best friends little sister that he was mean to when they were younger, then this would be a perfect book for you.

This good girl’s about to meet her match…

Ryder Brooks is living the dream—he’s famous, loved by millions of girls, and miserable. All he really wants is to write his own music, not Seconds to Juliet’s sugary sweet pop. In order to do that, though, the “bad boy” of the band will have to play by the rules. And that includes behaving with his new—and super cute—über-good-girl tutor.

Mia Reyes is in fangirl heaven. Tutoring her favorite member of her favorite band? It’s a dream come true…until it turns into a complete nightmare. Ryder is nothing like she thought. He’s crude, arrogant, and pretty much a total jerk. And the worst part? She’s roped into pretending to be his girlfriend so that no one finds out he’s being tutored. Fake kisses, plenty of PDA, and even sharing his hotel room…

But sometimes even the baddest of bad boys needs a little redemption.
