Jesse's Girl Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway

Jesse’s Girl by Miranda Kenneally
(Hundred Oaks)
Published by: Sourcebooks Fire
Publication date: July 7th 2015
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult


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 loved, loved, loved Jesse's Girl. I literally started a finished this book in one night. It was that good! I have enjoyed all of the books that I have read by Miranda Kenneally but I think I'm going to have to put Jesse's Girl at the top of my list! 

The first thing that Jeese's Girl had going for it is the simple fact that Maya is Sam Henry's sister. It was great seeing Jordan and Sam interact.Their relationship was one of my favorites and it's great to see them still together and happy. They have this crazy relationship where they fight like they are going to kill one another but it's so easy to see how much they love each other. They made me laugh with their arguments on the Detriot Lions. 

The other thing, the thing that really made me love this book was the fact that we are introduced to two great characters with Maya and Jeese. It's clear from the get-go that Maya isn't your typical teenage girl that is going to be falling all over herself just because Jesse is famous. Sure, she may a little on the inside but she doesn't let him know that. I love that Maya doesn't put up with Jeese's crap and that she wants to do things on her own. So many people would just take advantage of the fact that Jesse had these connections but Maya doesn't want that. She wants to feel like she made it on her own. I really felt bad for Jesse because he seemed so sad and alone. It's clear that they both have their own issues that they are working on and them being together helps both of them. Plus, it helps that I'm a sucker for books where famous guys fall in love with nonfamous girls. It kind of reminded me of This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith.

As always, I enjoyed Kenneally's writing style. She has this style that is relatable and easy to read. The writing just flows naturally and you get swept away into the story. 

This book is going on my favorite's list. I loved Jesse. I loved Maya. I loved seeing Jordan and Sam again. Simply put, I loved Jesse's Girl!
