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…

WARNING: THIS IS GOING TO BE A GIF FILLED REVIEW BECAUSE EMOTIONS AND MY BRAIN IS ALL MUSHY SO NO WORDS AND I DON’T MAKE MUCH SENSE RIGHT NOW
(I don’t think I was able to make a proper sentence just now…)
So, going straight to the point, Daisy and the Front Man had fun, stupid characters. Yes, they were stupid because hello? What would life be if we’re not? So basically, (this isn’t a spoiler because you’ll realize this at the start of the story or on the blurb unless you won’t) they played each other and they both got hurt.
Moral lesson of the story, if you want to go back at someone, make sure you feel nothing but desire to execute your revenge at that person and most especially not lingering romantic feelings because, well, you’ll be digging your own grave that way.
Back about the characters… Daisy is came off as a normal teenage girl to me. Well, that and she had this strong sense of recycling going on. And I love that. But you know, I did say that she came off as a normal teenager (which is not wrong but actually great – just pointing out). She had this teenage angst in her. Meaning, she tends to jump into her own world and conclusions based on what has already happened. Although according to other books I’ve read, that part of a person isn’t exactly a phase… Anyway, here we meet Trevin (who has a really cool name is really cool in general and I love him a lot) who is pretty much self-absorbed with a great family orientation and is stupid.
This novel had a really unique opening. Basically it was a summer love with a promise of a long-term relationship. I have been reading a lot of this boy band romances and so far, I’m loving each and every single one of them. I need to read the rest of this series because this is one awesome book and I know the other books are too.
In short words, I love the writing. Period. I have a few quotes here and there. I love how even though this is romance, the family aspect was never left behind. Even though I should say, Daisy definitely had typical YA parents. The romance played well and since they were young and stupid and playing, it was funny. Okay, maybe not that funny but look at the bigger picture and read it and you’ll find yourself laughing and loving, and swooning, and dying all at the same time.
Overall, Daisy and the Front Man is a cute book. This book is definitely going to make anyone smile any time of the day. Sure, it went round and round back to were it all started but it changes. Daisy sure is quite impulsive and Trevin is this guy who is pure guy… which means he was pretty stupid. Through it all, they were lovable. The boys (in the bad) were all lovable and let me guarantee you one thing: This series is definitely one we should all check out. Not to mention the great writing. If you’re into the contemporaries, you should definitely read this one. Not only for the romance but because I love the family value. And don’t forget the moral lesson. If you want to exact your revenge, do it fast before you fall for your own trap 😉
