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?
Jesse's Girl is the first book I've read by author Miranda Kenneally and to say I was excited to read this one is an understatement. Put it this way, I squealed and requested it right away when I saw it on Netgalley. After reading this fantastic book, I want to go back and read the entire series, the writing is superb and I can't wait to fall in love with the other characters.
Jesse's Girl is a fantastic story, filled with great characters that I was rooting for from the start. When they say opposites attract, they really meant it when it comes to the main characters in this book. Maya and Jesse are far from the same, one of them loves rock music and plays in a rock band while trying to branch out in her music. Then there is Jesse who is a country music star, trying to figure out who he is. Like I said opposites attract and attract they did, but not at first, just like in most relationships it doesn't come that easy.
I really loved the snarkiness of Maya, I must say to me she was so easy for me to connect with. She doesn't have that much self confidence and at her age I was the same way. Jesse of course is adorable, but trying to juggle everything he has to tends to be hard at any age, especially his.
I'm so glad I requested this book and loved reading every word of it. I need more love stories like this in my life. Jesse's Girl is the perfect book to snuggle up to while outside and read the day away. If you haven't picked it up and read it yet, I highly recommend it, but head my warning your face will hurt with how much you smile. Oh and the occasional aww you will be saying, at least I did.
