Abby and the Cute One (Backstage Pass #5) by Erin Butler
Release Date: November 16, 2015
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
He's cute. He's famous. And he could ruin everything... Every member of Seconds to Juliet has a girlfriend-except for Nathan Strong. Now the band's manager is leaning hard on "The Cute One" to play the role of the band's heartthrob. With the band's sales in decline, it's up to Nathan to keep the fans' fantasy alive.
The plan is to stage a fake relationship and a fake breakup, and then let the fans fight to be the one to mend Nathan's broken heart. Just one problem. There's another girl in the picture-one Nathan can't stay away from. In private, Nathan's stealing kisses with the band's new opening act, Abby Curtis.
If they're caught, no one wins. Abby will be fired, and the band might not recover the success they need to survive. But even with the pressure mounting, Nathan and Abby can't stop themselves from stealing one more touch, one more kiss. And it's only a matter of time before it all falls apart.
I've been a big fan of the Backstage Pass series since the very first book, and have thoroughly enjoyed each installment. I've been eagerly anticipating Nathan's story, because he's the one I felt like I knew the least about. He's more quiet, the youngest, and hasn't really taken center stage, so to speak, in the overall plot so far. This book didn't disappointment.
I loved Nathan immediately. He's so sweet and cute. I hated the situation he now finds himself in. All the other guys in the band have girlfriends, so the pressure is on for him to be the "dateable" one, the one people still have a chance with. Thus, he has to go on dates with celebrity girls he isn't even interested in. I know this happens in real life. You know all those celebrity marriages that occur and last a year or less? They were probably PR setups. I felt really bad for Nathan because of this situation, for him to have to hold the entire bag when what he really wants is a more simple girl, down to earth. He finds that in Abby.
Abby was so sweet, talented, and what I thought was a perfect match for Nathan. They meet very early in the story,and they had what I would describe as a "meet cute". I won't spoil it for anyone, but I will say that I was on board with their romance from the first few pages. She's got a YouTube following and is auditioning to be the opening act for Seconds to Juliet. Only problem is, once she's there, she's pretty much forbidden ground for Nathan in all respects.
I loved the conflict in this story, the way PR people try to dictate a celebrity's every move. And I loved the romance. I can't go into more detail without ruining something for those who haven't read it. But the author did a fabulous job giving this book depth inside a cute story, and for ending out this great series with a wonderful installment. Loved it.
