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?



Jesse's Girl is a wonderful addition to the Hundred Oaks series.  This one is a bit different as it involves a Music Star, but still a beautiful tale.

Jesse has been struggling with himself.  Struggling to be who he wants to be, and who others want him to be and its put him in a hard confusing place. Just when he's ready to give up and find a new focus, Maya enters his life and sort of shakes things up.

If Maya knows anything in life, it's who and what she wants to be, unfortunately things seem to be blowing up on her and she's left drifting. No boyfriend, no band, nothing she was counting on.  Then she's set to spend a Day with Country superstar, Jesse, and she learns that maybe her dream can changed and maybe she's got all she needs.

Maya and Jesse have a good bit of tension between but its masked with banter and slight aggrivation.  They grow closer as the day goes on and they discover more things about each other.  It was nice to see the buildup of their friendship as they talked and got to know each other and worked thorugh their own issues.

Growing up in Tennessee, Miranda Kenneally dreamed of becoming an Atlanta Brave, a country singer (cliché!), or a UN interpreter. Instead she writes, and works for the State Department in Washington, D.C., where George W. Bush once used her shoulder as an armrest. Miranda loves Twitter, Star Trek and her husband.

  1. Great review, Kris! I'm a big fan of this series and this one sounds like another winner! I love that the book has a lot of romance that really grows on you, but it's not ALL that it's about either. Glad you liked it! :)
