Practice Makes Perfect.

Everyone at Hundred Oaks High knows that career mentoring day is a joke. So when Maya Henry said she wanted to be a rock star, she never imagined she’d get to shadow *the* Jesse Scott, Nashville’s teen idol.

But spending the day with Jesse is far from a dream come true. He’s as gorgeous as his music, but seeing all that he’s accomplished is just a reminder of everything Maya’s lost: her trust, her boyfriend, their band, and any chance to play the music she craves. Not to mention that Jesse’s pushy and opinionated. He made it on his own, and he thinks Maya’s playing back up to other people’s dreams. Does she have what it takes to follow her heart—and go solo?


I adored this book!  It’s fun, full of music, and sweet.

Jesse’s Girl is the perfect summer read.  Maya is hilarious, and so comfortable in her own skin.  Except when it comes to singing.  She’s terrified to be in the spotlight.  But shadow day changes that for her.  She learns so much from being Jesse’s shadow.  Not only about music, but also about herself.  She’s fun, and I love that she loves Queen so much.  I watch Flash Gordon many times because they did the soundtrack.

This book is about learning to let people in for both Jesse and Maya.  And sometimes you may thing you loathe a person only for them to become a really great friend.  Not to mention all the other confusing lusty feelings that Maya sometimes has for Jesse.  I loved every bit of it.  Especially the playfulness between Maya and Jesse.  There were times where they were completely carefree.

The  playful elements, sweet romance, and shenanigans these two get into make Jesse’s Girl a great book to add to you beach bag.
