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 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…
I really liked both Aimee and Miles, they were described so well that I got a clear image of both of them in my head. Being in a boy band must be cool but as Miles is still a teenager I can see it becoming tough too. There were strict rules by his manager that had to be obeyed like staying single as it will make the fans go wild. He also had to be very careful what he got up to in public as paparazzi were everywhere just waiting for a story.
Aimee is like me although she is a lot younger, I could relate to her as she is a blogger and reviews books. She isn’t a naive teenager though, her heart has been broken and she will not let that happen again.
Miles and Aimee getting together is forbidden, heck Miles’ best friend is Aimees brother and it would kill their friendship. But temptation is too much to resist. Can they make it? Will Nick be okay with them and what will the manager do?
Aimee and the Heartthrob was very well written, the story was fast paced and flowed very well. I really enjoyed reading this and look forward to reading more books from Ophelia London
