Aimee and the Heartthrob by Ophelia London
Published by: Entangled Crush
Publication date: April 14th 2015
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult


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…

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

*Disclaimer* - I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review.

Aimee had the ultimate crush on Miles until Nick crushed her hopes and dreams. In her free time with her best friend, she designed an elaborate blog with stories of her future life with Miles, the lead singer of Seconds To Juliet.  Once Nick dealt her the crushing blow of the truth of how Miles felt about her, she asked Becky to delete the blog completely and was on her way to forgetting Miles. Becky said she would delete the blog, but did she? How could Aimee spend two entire weeks traveling with STJ while her parents were overseas with Doctors without Borders until her grandma was free to babysit at home? She had a plan, she would just ignore Miles and keep away from the band. Would that plan really work?

This book was the ultimate fan girl book. It was fun, silly, serious, romantic, sad, and a happily ever after. I enjoyed the book very much. It was fun to hear the story of a girl who knew the lead singer of the band before they came to fame.  The way Nick treated his sister and the story he told Aimee was completely believable, brothers are protective and jerks like that sometimes. I couldn’t put this book down and thought the story line flowed very well. I think it definitely channeled a little fan girl in myself and took me back to my younger days. It’s always great to read a story that is able to channel those memories as a young adult!

This was my first introduction to this author, and boy am I glad! If you have some inner fan girl in yourself, whether it’s a band, singer, actor, actress, or author, you will enjoy this book!
