It’s always the quiet ones…

Anya Anderson doesn’t just need a big break, she needs any break. Living on the streets doesn’t leave a girl many options, so when she scores a gig reporting on the Seconds to Juliet tour, she jumps at the chance to earn enough money to sleep somewhere safe. And the paycheck will get bigger—and keep her off the streets for good—if she can dig up dirt on Will Fray, the irritatingly hot “shy guy” of the band.

Problem is, Will Fray isn't who everyone thinks he is. In fact, he’s not Will at all. Matt, Will's identical twin, is actually the guy onstage, reluctantly covering for his brother while he’s in rehab. To make matters worse, Matt’s being shadowed by a cute reporter with troubled eyes determined to get the scoop. On him. And he's having trouble finding the willpower to keep his distance…

But if the secret gets out, it won't just be his head on a platter—it’ll be the whole band’s.

This Entangled Teen Crush book contains steamy make out scenes, graphic language, and a love story so hot your copy may spontaneously burst into flames. You’ve been warned.

My Review:

Anya and the Shy Guy was such a page-turner! I've read the last four books in the Backstage Pass Series and they are all unique and refreshing to read. In this particular book, Suze Winegardner does a great job giving us twists and turns that just made the story that much more enjoyable to read.

From the very start, we get to meet Anya Anderson, a teen who has been living in shelters and on the streets for a while. Now that she finally has gotten a job, she is willing to do anything to get her job done, including dig up dirt on any of the Seconds to Juliet band members. Yet when she arrives at one of their concerts things immediately start to change and go downhill once the band's manager tells her that she will be shadowing Will Fray, one of the members of the band who happens to be known as the “shy guys.” With nothing to lose, she is set to find anything that she can on him all to get a nice paycheck in the end. But that all soon changes when she starts to truly see Will for who he is and not just another member of a famous band. The more time they spend together, the more she is willing to risk to be with him.

Will Fray or in this case, Matt Fray, has been pretending to be his famous twin brother for a while after his brother went into rehab. Everything was supposed to work perfectly, since they are after all twins so people won't be able to notice, but the more he is the band, the more he is starting to feel that his secret will come out and it will hurt his brother and family a lot. But just when things were starting to get a bit rocky between him and the band's manager, he is told that Anya is going to be following his every step all to write more about him and to get more publicity for his band. Now he has to find a way to distract her in order to protect his secret, but the more time he spends with her, the more he wants to tell her the truth before it's too late.

I loved Matt's personality, he is funny and down to earth. When he is around his band mates, he wants to reveal the truth of his identity but he is afraid of them hating him after that. He not only has to protect himself while his is on tour, but his family as well and that is what keeps him in check at all times. When Anya arrives, she has a fun personality yet she is determined to get her job done at all costs that make him nervous. I very much enjoyed reading their scenes together. The story overall was entertaining to read, there were a lot of secrets revealed about what got Matt to pretend to be his brother in the first place as well as we get to find out what happens to Anya after everything gets revealed. I liked the paced of the story as well, the epilogue tied everything nicely. I highly recommend reading this series, each book has a great story to tell and this book did not disappoint. :)
