He never noticed her before, but now she’s all he can see…
Miles Carlisle is every teen girl’s fantasy. His rugged good looks and exotic British accent have helped catapult his boy band, Seconds to Juliet, to super-stardom. But after two disastrous and very public breakups, Miles isn’t interested in dating just any girl; he wants The One. And the only girl he’s interested in is not only his best friend’s little sister―and off-limits―but won’t even give him the time of day…
As a kid, Aimee Bingham had a huge thing for Miles…until he made fun of her for always tagging along. Now that she’s outgrown both him and her pigtails. the prospect of spending two weeks on tour with the childhood crush who broke her heart isn’t exactly enticing. Except now Miles seems interested. Very interested. And no matter how hard Aimee tries to resist him, her crush is definitely making a comeback.
But everyone knows that falling for a heartthrob is a backstage pass to heartbreak...
Aimee and the Heartthrob got me hooked from the beginning. I read the whole book in one sitting.
I love the sneaky rendezvous Aimee and Miles had. Sneaking in private bus tours, into kitchens and running down hotel corridors. And how comfortable they are when bantering with each other. And their way-back-then history with each other. However, what I don't like is the many times they kept going down memory lane. Once, or twice was enough. But after that just feels repetitive and slightly annoying. But that didn't happen throughout the whole book so no worries.
I love how the author kept switching from Miles then to Aimee's POV back and forth. But I wished she had put more scenes with the side characters in it. I didn't feel any connection there with the side characters like with Aimee's brother, Nick. The brotherly touch was nice but I just wished he was more there in the picture.
This was such an adorable and lighthearted read. A classic cute contemporary that will put a permanent smile on your face by the end of this book. Also, perfect for readers to take a break from heavy books or heavy real-life problems ;)
