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.
It was impossible not to feel a little sorry for Daisy at the beginning of this book. First of all, I found out how Trevin humiliated her. Then, she got stuck all summer with a man she barely knew even though they shared DNA. Even though I saw her side of things, there were moments when I wanted to hit her over the head. That being said, she had relatable qualities, a defining attribute for Young Adult Contemporary novels. The tricks that she played on Trevin were hilarious and kept the story interesting, making me wonder what she would come up with next. She had major trust issues, and falling for a boy she didn’t trust at all only complicated things.
I hadn’t learned a lot about Trevin in the first two books, so I didn’t know what to expect in his story. Shockingly, his character was more arrogant than I had expected. Having girls at his beck and call was not uncommon for the appointed leader of the band. When someone refused his advances, it was almost poetic—or should I say boy band?—justice. He had his charms, sure, but it wasn’t love at first sentence. I slowly fell for him, just like Daisy.
As I continue this series, I have mixed emotions about there being multiple authors. On the one hand, I like each boy and girl that the story focuses on having unique and separate voices; however, on the flip side, the other characters seem almost idiosyncratic from book to book. Now, that could be brilliant—how each boy and girl appears different in the others’ minds or a deep psychological thing about how others perceive us—but it was something that I had to get used to.
One amazing thing about these books is that you can read them in any order that you want. I can’t bear to read books out of sequence, so I’ve been reading them in order.
The Seconds to Juliet tour is still going on, and you still have plenty of time to join the phenomenon. Daisy and Trevin’s story is another great addition to this boy band saga, and you’ll be wanting to find out if all the S2J members find love or get lost in the spotlight.
Trevin is one of my favorite boys and I was anxious to see his story. If I had to choose a favorite Seconds to Juliet band member, he's the one I would definitely pick. He's got a good head on his shoulders, he's the one guy that the rest of them can reliably count on for support. I really related to some of the pressure that he felt from having that huge weight on his shoulders of being the member of the band who solves all the problems and is the voice of reason.
It took me awhile to really get where Daisy was coming from. I get the resentment she felt from being rejected, but I personally couldn't understand why she was so angry towards him just over that one thing. It seemed like a lot of unnecessary drama if you ask me. I will admit that it was a creative plot for the most part, I just didn't see it being realistic.
