This good girl’s about to meet her match…

Ryder Brooks is living the dream—he’s famous, loved by millions of girls, and miserable. All he really wants is to write his own music, not Seconds to Juliet’s sugary sweet pop. In order to do that, though, the “bad boy” of the band will have to play by the rules. And that includes behaving with his new—and super cute—über-good-girl tutor.

Mia Reyes is in fangirl heaven. Tutoring her favorite member of her favorite band? It’s a dream come true…until it turns into a complete nightmare. Ryder is nothing like she thought. He’s crude, arrogant, and pretty much a total jerk. And the worst part? She’s roped into pretending to be his girlfriend so that no one finds out he’s being tutored. Fake kisses, plenty of PDA, and even sharing his hotel room…

But sometimes even the baddest of bad boys needs a little redemption.

My Review:

I absolutely loved this book! The first book in the series, Aimee and the Heartthrob was such a cute romantic story that when I found out that there was going to be a second book in the series, I couldn't pass down the opportunity to read it. The characters are different just so that everyone knows, but they are linked since they are part of a band, so we do get to see the previous characters in the this book as well. This book had me laughing, and swooning over the main characters, it was just a very enjoyable read. 

In this book, it follows another member of the Seconds to Juliet band, Ryder Brooks. He is the ultimate bad boy and an essential member of the band, yet what everyone doesn't know is that he really wants to do something more than just be a heartthrob to millions of girls around the world. He wants to go to college and write his very own music. But to do that he needs to pass an exam, so he enlists the help of Mia Reyes, his new tutor. 

Mia Reyes never dreamed of tutoring one of her favorite members of her favorite band, but when Ryder's manager asked Mia to tutor Ryder in return for a generous offer. Mia had no choice but to leave her family and go on tour with the band, but nothing could have prepared her when she finally got to meet Ryder Brooks, never in a million years she would have thought that he was going to be a total jerk to her. Now to make things worse, he has decided to have Mia as his fake girlfriend so that no one knows that he's being tutored, not even the other members of the bad. But the soon fake kisses in front of reporters, and the alone time that have to together start to turn into something neither of them expected. 

There were a lot of things that I enjoyed about this book, it sets the pace right away, and as readers we get to see Mia and Ryder connect as the two spend more time together. Mia has a sweet personality, yet she knows how to handle herself when she is caught up in all sorts of situations. One of her biggest dreams is to sing, but her parents have always told her that singing was not going to be a good career for her. Now that she is with the band, and Ryder, she soon starts to discover what she truly wants for herself. Whereas Ryder, he is a charming playboy who knows what he wants to achieve with his career and how to get there. When the two connect, they understand each other and their fears that makes the book relatable to read. I personally liked their scenes when they're not with the band, they are just so romantic! Overall, the story was well-written, and thought out. The ending was my favorite part overall, it truly brings everything together. I highly recommend it. :)
