My main reading goal this year is to get through a number of books I’ve purchased over the last few years on my Kindle. I have a lot of books I’ve picked up for free or because it is something I might like. This past summer when Daisy and the Front Man came out I decided to pick it up. It wasn’t a priority for me to read but I thought it would be a good read for a weekend. It definitely was and made for a quick read as well.
Daisy and the Front Man Synopsis
Hell hath no fury like a fangirl scorned…
When Daisy Morris finds out she’s spending the summer with her dad, bodyguard for Seconds to Juliet – the hottest boy band around – she knows it couldn’t be more perfect. But not because she’s a fan. Oh, no. Because ever since front man Trevin Jacobs completely humiliated her by standing her up for homecoming, Daisy is out for a little revenge. Yup, Trevin Jacobs is goin’ down…
When one of his bandmates bets Trevin he can’t make Daisy – the gorgeous but surprisingly ice-cold daughter of their bodyguard – fall in love with him, it’s a bet he can’t resist. Sure, Daisy won’t give him the time of day for reasons he can’t understand, and her dad’s hell-bent against his little girl spending time with a superstar. But the terms are set, and Trevin is determined to make Daisy fall…hard.
But every front man should know never to trust a girl with a pretty face…
My Thoughts on Daisy and the Front Man
Daisy was quick to fall for as a favorite character. She was your average high school girl who had an exciting date to homecoming. Very quickly we felt sorry for her and wanted to make sure she found a way to move forward after her traumatizing year. We do learn that Daisy struggles with her father and is not happy to be spending the summer with him.
With any young adult book, of course the irony comes in very quickly as we find out that Daisy will not only be spending her summer with her father but with the boy who stood her up for homecoming. I did love from the start how Daisy was trying to get back at Trevin and he was trying to win a bet. Both of them were playing each other from the start, in the end it backfired big time.
I did enjoy how the book played out. As expected in a book about love, Daisy and Trevin had to figure out what was going on with both of their pasts before they were able to move forward together. I enjoyed watching Daisy find out the truth about her mom and dad and how she began to accept her relationship with her dad because of it.
It wasn’t until I was about halfway through that I realized there is more to the series starting with two other members of the boyband. We learn a little bit about the other guys but not a lot, so it would be interesting to go back and read the rest of their stories. You can definitely read this book without reading the other two though. Nothing took place that was confusing if you hadn’t read them before. Enough back story was given to understand what was going on.
This book was a very quick and easy read. I am a sucker for young adult books as easy weekend reads and this one fit the build perfectly. It was appropriate for teenagers to read as well. I would have no problem recommending it to a young adult who was looking for something fun and romantic without being beyond their level of reading.
Do you enjoy young adult books for a quick read?
