"Fun, sweet, and so, so HOT! This is my teenage dream come true! Ophelia London perfectly captures the push and pull, the yearning and angst, and the all-consuming Rush of first love in Aimee and the Heartthrob. I never wanted this story to end. I'm officially a card carrying member of the Miles High Club." ~New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Harris
"It's no wonder girls all over the world are falling in love with Miles. And now I probably sound like a 12-year-old fangirl of 1D. But I refuse to apologize. Seriously, for every girl who's ever been in love with a member of a boy band, this one's for you." ~Book Junkie review
"Get ready for lots of teen romance, backstage music and a lot of teen speech, LOL and all. I found it very unique and cute and not at all tiring, in fact refreshing in a way that totally suited the age. Young Adult all the way. ♥" ~The Lovely Pages Reviews

Starting off the Backstage Pass series, we follow Aimee whose summer gets turned around when her friend, Becky ends up getting mono and cancelling their fun summer plans. Instead, Aimee has to go on tour with Seconds to Juliet with her brother, Nick and the band for three weeks while her parents are on a trip for Doctors Without Borders. Aimee isn't thrilled, but deep down she's a secret superfan of the band. She ends up rekindling a friendship and relationship with Miles - a friend of her brother from their childhood- who is in the band. Miles is known as "The Heartthrob" of the band due to his past relationships. Her brother, Nick forces her to stay away from him because he is a player.
Nonetheless, Aimee and Miles go against the rules because of their love for eachother. I felt this book was SUPER cringey at times because of the things they said.. Aimee's phrase to say is "nut-burgers" Huh? Also, some of the cheesy lines that Miles would say had me cringing!!!
This was super cute, as I expected. It read like a boy band fanfiction. Miles is probably my least favorite character, though. I kinda hated how he kept having to hide his relationship with Aimee and he was sort of a hypocrite! He would always say, I can't be with you blah blah blah and then he'd sneak Aimee and make out with her. GAH.
Miles got super cute at the end, though!! I shipped them together by the Epilogue. Glad there was an epilogue b/c I really wanted to know where they were after the tour!
Aimee was a GREAT character!! She's a YouTuber!! I thought that was amazing, she and her friend, Becky run a vlog channel where they review books, movies and music. I would so watch them if they were IRL!!
Seriously. It's ridiculous how much I loved this book. It's so well written and all the characters, not just Aimee and Miles, are so well portrayed. And the setting details for behind the scenes stuff at concerts is spot on. In my college years, I did a lot of concert photography and concert reviews for a website I ran. I was often backstage at one show or another, attending sound checks, getting to know several headline artists and opening acts, and just generally watching how things are put up and brought down. This book brought all that back to me and it was such a fun place to visit again.
Aimee and Miles have both been disillusioned by love, by people they trusted, and though they feel as if they can trust each other, they're both a little wary of that. They're also quick to believe the worst, even when something else tells them they should know better. Yet, even with the misunderstandings and tentative trust, they find ways to bring out the best in each other. Because of Aimee, Miles is able to trust in himself and his talents, and because of Miles, Aimee is able to open up and let go of the hurt she's carried and go back to enjoying something she once loved: Miles, and Seconds to Juliet.
If you love YA contemporary romance that takes a modern day fangirl and places her in the center of both her worst nightmare and her greatest wish then this is the book for you. If you're anything like me, you're seriously going to fall in love with everything, characters, story, setting. It all adds up to one amazingly fun read, and one that will--and should--go on YA lover's and fangirl bookshelves everywhere.
This title is a great introduction to what the remainder of the books are going to be about. It's fluffy and adorable stories about finding love, which is also something that the imprint Entangled Crush has promised from the beginning, which I really appreciate. This is a beautiful story filled with memorable characters and sweet scenes between our main couple. You're sure to love this one if YA contemporary romance books are your thing.
