As a pre-teen, Aimee Bingham had a real crush on her brother’s best friend, Miles Carlisle. His great looks and British accent as well as his kindness and shared activities together all helped this crush grow until her brother revealed what Miles really thought of her, making fun of her and resenting her tagging along with them. Heartbroken, that was it as far as Aimee was concerned. Now, years later, with her parents going away earlier than initially planned, Aimee is going to have to go stay with her brother. The problem with that is he’s going on tour with Miles who is now a superstar and heartthrob along with his boy band, Seconds to Juliet. Instead of being the dream come true that it would have been for most sixteen year olds, she’s not exactly looking forward to spending weeks with the boy who broke her heart . . . .

Miles rocketed to stardom but has his Mum with him on tour to try to help keep him grounded. He’s had two very public and disastrous relationships where the girls involved kissed and told so now he’s not interested in dating  – until he meets his best friend’s little sister again and now she’s sixteen and not so little but still totally off limits. Anyway she doesn’t seem to want to even speak to him now but he wants to be friends . . . .

A great teen story with all the teenage angst and turmoil set against the backdrop of a boy band’s tour and the backstage shenanigans involved in all of that. This is fun, relaxing read and how the two try to outwit the ‘adults’ and her brother make it hilarious at times. The chemistry between them is hot but very appropriate to their ages. It is a great story about how trust and faith in each other are key to making any relationship work and, although no longer a teenager by a long way, I still really enjoyed it. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next volume, too! I’ve read other books by this author and really enjoyed them, I’m very glad to say this is another winner as far as I’m concerned.

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
