I love a twin-switch story. I love rock stars. I love Suze Winegardner. Basically, only one thing gave me pause. I don't read a lot of YA. Would I love a Teen Crush? Should I risk it? I thought the genre was the only risk involved, but there is a hidden risk I didn't fully appreciate when I decided to hit "Buy." I'll get to that later.

Anyway, I took the risk and I'm glad I did!

Anya and Will have their secrets, and good reasons for keeping them. They're both shouldering more responsibilities than teenagers should have to bear. Their backstories had me rooting for them as individuals--which puts the reader in a tough position because this is one of those situations where if one succeeds, the other fails--but it's not a enemies-to-lovers story. The genuine affection and attraction between Anya and Will make their interactions fun and...well...adorable. The connection feels real and it's really them against their circumstances, not each other.

Still, they are difficult circumstances, and I definitely had the "Oh NO!" moments when I wondered how the heck these two were going to find a legit happily-ever-after. Yet they do. One I completely bought into and absolutely loved.

Okay, now for the hidden risk in reading this book. It's the 4th in the 5 book Backstage Pass series, and once you read it, you're going to want to buy the others. Have your book budget ready!

I have a crush on The Shy Guy. I have a crush on Will. I mean Matt. Yeah, Matt. Did you catch that?! Will is really Matt, Will's twin brother. When I first read that, I was all "What the what?" How did that happen? How can Matt pull it off? Who is in on the switch and how long can he keep it up the charade? Anya and the Shy Guy gives readers a little twist to The Backstage Pass series and it adds to the fun. I loved it!

This book has a different feel to it compared to the others. There seemed to be less interaction between the band members which makes complete sense. Matt has a huge secret to hide and the less he interacts with the band members, the less of a chance there is that he will be found out. I did want more interactions because I enjoy the comradarie with the other guys. There are some great one-liners so we do get a bit of the other guys in Seconds to Juliet (more Ryder please!)

Like not-Will, Anya has her own secrets that she must keep and must walk a fine line to keep them. I like how Winegardner addressed Anya's struggles and her needs and didn't trivialize her experience. I did want to know more about Anya's background and her relationship with her mom. We get pieces, but that is something that I would have like more of.

Some favorite moments:

*The eating contest between Matt and Anya
*Anya becoming friends with Natasha
*Rooftops at night
*"WET" serenade

Some favorite quotes:

"Anyway, if you're not living life on the edge, you're taking up too much room."
"I'm going to remind you that you said that."

"Don't be embarrassed.

Now we've reached the fourth book in the series and my personal favorite. For some reason, it really bugs me when the main character doesn't know the real name of the love interest or vice versa. Mistaken identity in YA stories just isn't my thing. Surprisingly enough, the author of this book actually pulled this off in a completely unique way. I've never read a story that had this sort of plot and that alone was refreshing enough for me. Yes, it had tons of drama as usual, but I think you can already tell that this is something you can instantly expect in these books.

Anya was a great character and her story was actually a lot more serious and depressing than the previous three leading ladies. She was a very driven girl with a past history of homelessness that honestly broke my heart. You don't typically see a lot of this in YA so I thought that was a wise move to make. As for Matt, I found him to be insanely charming and I loved him with Anya. He had a pressing secret that he simply couldn't let Anya figure out. I thought it said a lot about him that he was able to stick up for his brother while he was in trouble. It was a creative and well done storyline.

There's so much to like about this book. In fact, there really is not much wrong with it to say the least. I could continue bragging about how great it is, but I'm sure you'd rather make that decision for yourself. I'll leave it on the note that the romance itself is addicting. I loved reading about them together, and let's say that some scenes are especially steamy.

Not my favorite, not the worst. There are several things liked about it: I liked that it was different from the others. I liked that Anya was homeless and it was believable. I liked the twin thing and that Matt was doing it for family and to help rather than to be famous for a while. I loved the relationship between Anya and Natasha. Also the relationship between Anya and Jude even though that was mostly past tense. I loved the relationship between Matt and the rest of the band.
What I didn't like: I didn't feel the chemistry between the two. Maybe both secrets got in the way of that?? I don't know. I was confused how long Matt was pretending to be Will, was it for the entire book series of just a few weeks before the book started? Will randomly coming back at a odd time and for a weak reason. And SPOILER Will all of a sudden in a relationship with Natasha? Like I said, I liked it but it's not my favorite
