Boy Band - Jacqueline E Smith

Earlier this week I downloaded a lot of books to keep me amused during an eight hour flight this weekend. I started reading a chapter to see if I was going to like it and as I don't go on holiday until tomorrow and I've already finished the book it's safe to say I absolutely adore this book!

Boy Band is essentially my perfect book, it ticks every single box in things I love reading about. Dating a famous person - tick! Lead character with the same name as mine - tick! From the very first sentence it made me laugh, it made me frustrated at times and mainly it was a book that when I wasn't reading the book it was all I could think about. I just wanted Boy Band to never end!

The book tells the story of Melissa who is hopelessly in love with her best friend Sam  Morneau, which would be great if he felt the same/knew how she felt and wasn't a member of the hottest new band The Kind Of September. Melissa follows the band around, who wouldn't want to spend their day in a whirlwind life of a top boy band with there best friends?

The book delves into the world of what I imagine it's like to be in a famous boy band completely. I am someone who was obsessed with a boy band (and still somewhat am...) when I was a teenager so the setting really appealed to me. The characters were so great to read about too. I can't imagine anyone finishing reading this book and not want a relationship like Melissa and Sam. There friendship is just far too adorable to be true. 

Boy Band was such a perfect book for me I don't know if I'm excited or nervous to read book number two in the series in case it doesn't reach the high expectations I now have for it. The ending of Boy Band just made me want to scream! How could it end of such a cliffhanger! Thankfully I have already downloaded book number two onto my kindle already to crack on with reading on the plane.

If you love stories that revolve about boy band and have a really cute friendship in it. You will absolutely love this book, I couldn't recommend it more! Now I'm off to board my plane to get cracking on book two....

Synopsis -

Sam Morneau is Melissa Parker’s best friend. He’s also a member of The Kind of September, basically the hottest boy band on the planet. 

After two and a half years, Mel is all too familiar with the day-to-day occurrences that come with being a member of the band’s inner circle, including hectic schedules, passionate fans, and gossip-mongering celebrity girlfriends. 

Now, with the release of the group’s third album just weeks away, their lives have never been crazier and Mel is doing everything she can to keep up, all the while trying to cope with the ridiculous rumors that follow the band everywhere they go and pretending that she isn’t harboring a secret and hopeless crush on Sam. 

It’s weird enough being in love with your best friend. It’s even weirder when the rest of the world is in love with him, too.
