How to Seduce a Band Geek
How to Seduce a Band Geek - Cassie Mae Perfection.

How can I explain just how perfect this book is?

Gosh, where do I even start?

Okay, let's try it this way...

This book is all about finding the strength to rise above the bullying. The first book was all about being yourself, but this one? It's about staying true to it and not letting every bad thing that other people say get to you.

I'm so proud of the main character, Sierra, because for one, she's a good daughter. She listens to her parents and respects them. Second, she has evolved into nice sister. That's saying something since I kind of hated her in book 1 because she was an annoying teenager. Third, she isn't ashamed of herself. Not really. She's just an unfortunate victim of hurtful words. What I love about her best is how she treated Levi. She's totally head over heels!! The mushy, dreamy moments are not scenes that I get to read about all the time, so that's all good. I love that she was not the least bit turned off when Levi whipped out the band geek persona.

It's awesome!


**sigh**


Needless to say, I love Levi. Loved him since book 1. The world will love him too because he's adorable, responsible and so, very thoughtful.


I also love Zoe's and Sierra's parents. Their guidance is totally needed and appreciated. I love the rules that their mom gave to Sierra. Haha! Those sure were fantastic rules! ^_________^

Sooooo there, the story is actually kind of light at first and then goes kind of heavier when problems start to arise. Don't worry, these characters may be teens, but they make wise decisions. I love the bunch!

Soooo there. I'll definitely read the next one!!! :)

PERFECT 5!!!!

How To Seduce a Band Geek by Cassie Mae
How to Seduce a Band Geek - Cassie Mae

I loved loved loved this book. I was expecting greatness, but stumble upon awesome. Seriously, it was hysterically funny and deep at the same time. It’s a book that deals with issues like overcoming bullying, taking on huge responsibilities at a young age, loyalty, friendship, and just being yourself no matter what. It has some swoony romance in it and it struck me as very real. I mean all the emotions were so authentic you felt them alright.

 

This story has just a bit of everything and a lot of unique romance, and even though this is book two in the series it can absolutely be read as a standalone. You’ll end up enjoying it from beginning to end.

 

But I take my hat off for the characters. How could you not love Levi and Adam? Their loyalty and concern, their need to be protective is adorable and sexy (in my book at least). But I loved Sierra the most. Yes there will be lots of loving here. She was hilarious. I loved her ramblings, and how she was so firm and stuck to her beliefs all the way. How she had her principles and priorities in order, and her freaking stubbornness! I loved that she was somewhat crazy stockerish, but I simply loved her originality. It is so hard not to like her and her peeps. She was so authentic and real. Everything she did was so truthful.

 

I also loved her relationship with her sister. How close they were, and how protective of each other. How they could confide in each other like the closest of friends. Not every sibling relationship has that and I just love a good tale about two sisters.

 

The book is very fast paced and enticing. I seriously needed to get some work done, but couldn’t stop reading until the end. The story is engrossing in a way that will suck you in preventing you from doing anything else.

 

Overall, this is the kind of book that will stick with you; that will make you happy and feel good about the world. It’s the kind of book you would want to pick up in whenever and always, no matter in what mood you are in. It’s the kind of book that will leave you swooning and wishing for me. In brief, it’s the kind of book you would want to read.

 

*Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, but my opinion was not biased in any way by this fact.

How to Seduce a Band Geek - Cassie Mae

Somehow I have a love/hate relationship with this book. I kinda love certain bits and pieces, while I really loathed others.
The storyline is cute-ish. Kinda your typical YA romance but also kinda more. More annoying but then again with some surprising depths and some sweet gooey goodness to top it, so also with more substance.

My biggest issue in fact was Sierra. I didn't care much for her in How to Date a Nerd, I really couldn't stand here in this one. Her constant adjustment of her clothes, her judgmental comments,  her behavior, well basically all about her went on my nerves. But then as the story went on, she turned out to be a really loyal friend and actually despite her judgmental view of everyone, she did grow on me. Some how I wanted her and Levi to work out. Though Levi seems way to good for miss annoyance, he brought out the best in her and while she was with him she changed. She became more herself, rather than a sex-kitten-wanna-be. But also through him she started seeing that the world isn't black and white. That not everyone is the same or what they are first glance seem.

I love Levi in the first book. He was this sweet and genuinely great dude and in this one he totally was a star. Even if he wasn't sure if he actually could have a relationship. But given his situation, I completely got him. While he is a hottie, he's behavior and great character is what won my heart. 

I like that Mae decided to write books about characters, who don't swim in money, but come from families who work hard to make ends meet. While some of the cast seems a bit over the top, to polarized, I think their circumstances are more realistic than most YA books.

The writing style, left me divided as well. Because some of the times I found it a bit to snarky and simplistic, in other places I thought Mae got it JUST right.
An interesting thing is that Mae obviously is trying to convey a message through these books. Though at times it was a bit too much into your face, more subtlety would have been better in my opinion
But saying all this, let me tell you as well, I am totally going to read the next one. Because even if I had some reservations, I also did enjoy it. And in the end I felt all happy-clappy and had my cute&fluffy fix. So all in all it ended way better than it started- cute with a tad of annoyance

Which means this is somewhere between good and great- 3,5 Stars!






Oh yes....

a side note:

The boob adjustment thing
I still can't get over how much Sierra talked about adjusting her boobs and her worry about it poping out.
