Everyone at Hundred Oaks High knows that career mentoring day is a joke. So when Maya Henry said she wanted to be a rock star, she never imagined she’d get to shadow *the* Jesse Scott, Nashville’s teen idol.
But spending the day with Jesse is far from a dream come true. He’s as gorgeous as his music, but seeing all that he’s accomplished is just a reminder of everything Maya’s lost: her trust, her boyfriend, their band, and any chance to play the music she craves. Not to mention that Jesse’s pushy and opinionated. He made it on his own, and he thinks Maya’s playing back up to other people’s dreams. Does she have what it takes to follow her heart—and go solo?
From the moment I first picked up Catching Jordan, Miranda Kenneally has been on my MUST READ list! So when I saw Jesse’s Girl on Netgalley? I anxiously awaited approval!
I have to admit, I was nervous. This is Sam Henry’s little sister, Maya – but more importantly? There’s no sports. This is a music themed book, and that made me hesitant. I can’t really tell you why, but it did. (When an author steps away from their norm? It’s scary!)
But my hesitation was pointless. This book was AMAZING. Maya is spunky, fun and just all around awesome! And Jesse? Well… What’s not to love? (Although, he is the male Taylor Swift of country music – so I suppose that could be off-putting.) Despite the heavy probability that this would be cheesy and unrealistic? (I mean, come on! Who gets to spend a day with country music royalty?) It was was surprisingly realistic.
I loved how Maya and Jesse fell in love slowly. How they were both hesitant. And as per Miranda’s normal style? This book sucks you in early and won’t let you put it down!
If you’re a fan of Miranda Kenneally? You’re going to love this newest edition!
