It’s always the quiet ones…
Anya Anderson doesn’t just need a big break, she needs any break. Living on the streets doesn’t leave a girl many options, so when she scores a gig reporting on the Seconds to Juliet tour, she jumps at the chance to earn enough money to sleep somewhere safe. And the paycheck will get bigger—and keep her off the streets for good—if she can dig up dirt on Will Fray, the irritatingly hot “shy guy” of the band.
Problem is, Will Fray isn't who everyone thinks he is. In fact, he’s not Will at all. Matt, Will's identical twin, is actually the guy onstage, reluctantly covering for his brother while he’s in rehab. To make matters worse, Matt’s being shadowed by a cute reporter with troubled eyes determined to get the scoop. On him. And he's having trouble finding the willpower to keep his distance…
But if the secret gets out, it won't just be his head on a platter—it’ll be the whole band’s.
This Entangled Teen Crush book contains steamy make out scenes, graphic language, and a love story so hot your copy may spontaneously burst into flames. You’ve been warned.
I received an e ARC of Anya and the Shy Guy from Entangled Crush via Net Galley in exchange with my honest review.
Although I did not read any of the previous books, I was still able to keep up and enjoy the book easily. The Backstage pass is a series that follows a famous boy band as each one of them fall in love. In this fourth installation, we get to see the shy guy ,Will, fall in love, but Will isn't Will.
This novel is told from 2 POV's , but in third person ! We follow Anya's story as she tries to get her story on Will to escape living on the streets, and the lies she told and hid . We also see Matt's story as he tries to charm Anya to keep her from discovering his twin's secrets, but of course they Fall In Love ! But will this love survive ? Can their secrets stay hidden? What would happen if both of their secrets are spilled? Tada da dan ! Read to know how this story ends
I like that we got see both POV, and I like it more that it is written in 3rd person.
I also liked how the characters developed, in a "what matters to me more "sort of way.
My only problem was something that happened in the ending.
Spoiler Alert !!
I am not convinced that their manager agreed to back off so easily. He seemed like a person who would risk anything to get what he wants, isn't that why Will is not Will, but backed off too easily at the end. I wished that there was more into what happened when the band stood up for what they want.
Spoiler Ended !!
The novel was a bit graphic, so I don't recommend it to very young readers. You know what, get it and read it when you are older!
I think that Suze did a good job with her debut novel.I am defiantly looking forward to read more of her books.
Anya and the Shy Guy is the perfect summer read! With all of the fluffiness, swoon, and interesting events, I was not able to put it down.
I give Anya and the Shy Guy 4.25 /5 stars .
