Jacqueline has done it yet again! This was another amazing book from her.

This book is technically the end of the of the series, but I’m still holding on to hope that there will be more. *fingers crossed* As a conclusion, this book was great. It wrapped up the main storyline of the Tara drama perfectly. I was very happy with what ultimately transpired.

I really liked how this book incorporated even more of Chloe and Kendra. They’re both super awesome characters and were a nice addition to the band’s inner circle. I loved the all-girl alliance that Mel, Joni, Chloe, and Kendra formed.


Like the other books in this series, there were a lot of twists and turns. It kept me guessing the entire time. I literally had no idea how it was going to end. I got anxious in the last 30 pages because I wasn’t sure what would happen. But like I mentioned previously, it ended very well. I have zero complaints.

As a random side note, there was one paragraph in the beginning that I really loved. It’s when Mel is describing how hot Sam looks while shooting a music video. She remarks, “By God, he looks so good. He kind of looks like the Prince from Beauty and the Beast, but if the Prince was blond and like, a million times hotter. And not animated” (46). As you probably already know, I love Beauty and the Beast and I love any reference to it.

Overall, this was perfect!!



Review: Worldwide (Boy Band #3)


Rating: ★★★★★

Like all the other books, this one was so good!

This book was filled with nonstop craziness. It was pretty much bombshell after bombshell. What happened in book two was just the tip of the iceberg. So. Much. Drama. But I loved every second of it (I’m a sucker for celebrity drama. It’s my guilty pleasure). I just couldn’t believe all the things that were happening. Much like the last 50 pages of the previous book, it was utter insanity.


Aside from the drama aspect, I loved Mel and Chloe’s friendship. I liked that Chloe would text Mel and check in with her whenever she heard something about the band or Mel. It was really nice seeing their friendship develop especially after their initial rocky start. I hope we see even more of her in the next book.

I also loved that this book focused on their tour. I loved the places they visited and the behind the scenes glimpse of what it’s like being on tour. Since I am an RVer, I can definitely relate to the small bathroom space. Those showers are tiny!

Overall, this was an excellent continuation of the series. I cannot wait to see how it all ends!


Review: Backstage (Boy Band #2)


Rating: ★★★★½

I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.

So first off, I just have to say that Jacqueline Smith wins for writing the best dedications. On her dedication page she writes, “I’ve dedicated enough books to my family and friends. This book is for my cat. And Harry Styles.” But honestly, let’s be real, enough books are dedicated to people’s family and friends. Random side note: I freaking love Harry Styles.


Okay, so back to the book. Don’t get me wrong, I really liked this, but I didn’t like it as much as the first one which is why I gave it 4.5 stars instead of 5. The reason why I didn’t like it as much was because nothing super duper exciting happened until the last 50 pages. The last 50 pages were the core of the story and they were a crazy 50 pages. Pretty much all hell broke loose and their world kind of imploded. It was insane and will definitely make you want to read the third book. That’s actually something I really like about this series; it always leaves you wanting more.

Another thing I really like about this series, especially in this book, is that it explores the intricacies of being in a boy band. Being a celebrity is one thing, but being a part of a famous group is another. There’s just so much that goes on backstage that we never see, it’s no wonder that so many of them end up going their separate ways. This book in particular really highlighted that well.

Overall, this was a great installment to the Boy Band series. I can’t wait to find out what happens next!
