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?

Today, I’m happy to share my review of Jesse’s Girl by Miranda Kenneally as part of her blog tour. Be sure to enter the giveaway below and follow the tour, HERE.

Miranda Kenneally has delivered another heart-felt story with Jesse’s Girl. I love the Hundred Oaks Series, and each unique and engaging story with great characters. I really enjoyed getting to know spunky Maya and Jesse, and spending time with Jordan and Sam from Catching Jordantoo (Maya is Sam Henry’s little sister).

I’m not typically drawn to story lines that involve famous people… But stories about country music that takes place in Nashville? Yes, yes, yes! I really liked that Maya was a rocker girl and to see how dedicated she was to music and having a career as a musician. Her character was refreshing, and I loved that she was close to her family. I wasn’t a fan of Jesse’s attitude but he grew on me the more I learned of his own heart-breaking circumstances.

What sets Jesse’s Girl apart from other meet-famous-rock-star story lines, is that Maya and the Jesse Scott were brought together because of their common love of music and choice of career. Maya wants a career, and Jesse’s fame is making him want end his… it was different, and I really enjoyed it, it just made me happy!

I’ve read all of Miranda Kenneally’s books, and I can’t wait for whatever is next!

    I have just recently fallen in love with Miranda Kennealy’s writing and the characters at Hundred Oaks, all of them are so adorable. This book got my attention so much more with the whole country music scene, I am such a country girl that this will definitely be a love for me (hopefully).
