After breaking up with her bad-news boyfriend, Reagan O’Neill is ready to leave her rebellious ways behind. . . and her best friend, country superstar Lilah Montgomery, is nursing a broken heart of her own.

Fortunately, Lilah’s 24-city tour is about to kick off, offering a perfect opportunity for a girls-only summer of break-up ballads and healing hearts. But when Matt Finch joins the tour as its opening act, his boy-next-door charm proves difficult for Reagan to resist, despite her vow to live a drama-free existence.

This summer, Reagan and Lilah will navigate the ups and downs of fame and friendship as they come to see that giving your heart to the right person is always a risk worth taking.

My Review:

If you're looking for a light summer read, this is it! It's a story about a bad girl who's trying to reform and change her ways while joining her superstar best friend while she goes on tour. Her best friend, Dee (or as her fans know her, Liliah), is very Taylor Swift: the early years, and I loved that. I'm a huge Taylor Swift fan and have been since the start, so I instantly loved Dee and their similarities.

I liked Reagan for the most part, but found her to be a little too irrational at times. Which is understandable because of what she's been through, it just got a bit much for me. But overall, she was a good main character to follow as she learned to love and trust again. Matt joined my list of fictional boys that I fell in love with. It's no wonder Reagan lets her guard down with him. He's sweet, funny, and genuinely a nice guy who just happens to be a superstar.

This book is fun, sweet and a good read about leaving your old self behind for a better life, as well as giving you insight on what the life of having a best friend as a superstar is like. I really enjoyed this book, and thought it was the perfect book to read for the summer.
