Happy weekend all!
It is crazy windy and dry here fire weather in California. But thank goodness I finally kicked the headache I had for the last couple days! This was a really cute romance perfect for anyone who loves the love!
Call Me, Maybe
What if you got a second chance with your first love?
What happens when you meet your teenage heart-throb – when you’re both all grown up? When Cassie was fifteen, all she wanted was to marry Jesse Franklin, the bassist from her favourite band, Franko. Now she’s single, in her late twenties and wondering what happened to that teenage dream.
A chance encounter on Facebook soon leads to a transatlantic hook up, and soon, Jesse and Cassie are having a long-distance love affair spanning five thousand miles.
Cassie is on cloud nine – until she hears something that makes her think that Jessie might not be all that he seems. They say never meet your heroes – but what happens when you fall in love with them…?
Are Cassie and Jessie star crossed lovers, destined to be together? Or should Cassie have left her crush in the box marked teenage memories?
Who was your teenage crush? My teenage crush was Rob Lowe. So imagine you send a friend request to your teenage crush on Facebook and not only does he accept your friend request but he starts a conversation with you. Before you know it you are involved in a long distance love affair with a boy you dreamt about when you were a teenager. But is this a dream come true or nightmare? Cute and complicated this was an entertaining romance. The story is told from the perspectives of both Cassie and Jesse. I really like this because I felt as though we got the full story. I’m not a fan of Insta love and it was a little harder to buy into given that the characters lived across the ocean from one another. This book also had my least favorite trope the dreaded miscommunication, seriously I just wanted to shake these two if they just would really talk so much could have been avoided. This was an interesting romance I think I liked these characters apart more than I like them together? Individually they seem like great people perhaps a little selfish, but who isn’t at some point in their life. The secondary characters really stole the show for me, I especially loved Jessie’s family! This was a good romance that I might need a follow-up to, need to find out if these two really make it or not. The perfect book for those who love the love!
Author Bio –
Stephie was born in England in the mid 1980s, which makes her thirty-something (but if you ask, she’ll probably tell you she’s 27). Now, she lives on the South coast of the UK, has a day job to keep her holiday budget topped up, and two kids and a husband to keep an eye on.
Getting Over Jesse Franklin and Jetplanes to Jupiter were born out of a healthy appreciation of bass guitars (and the dudes who play them), and Franko was very much inspired by her favourite band as a teenager. So now you know.
