Can Dreams Come True? by Kristen Lindsay Hager | Mini Book Review & Giveaway ☕️

22 April 2018

Aloha Dolls 🌺,

How's everyone's weekend going? I hope you are all enjoying the heat as it is GORGEOUS today. I spent the morning at a car boot sale looking for some Disney finds and it was such a great way to start the day. Today I'm sharing with you a mini review on Kristen Lindsay Hager's first book in her new Cecily Taylor series and I can't wait to share it with you. This review is one of the many other blog reviews/posts that have been going live this weekend for the Weekend Blitz blog tour hosted by Neverland Blog Tours to celebrate this new little book and I hope you enjoy it too. If you stay reading till the end then there may be a little giveaway in store for you too.
Cecily has always had a huge crush on singer Andrew Holiday and she wants to be an actress, so she tags along when her friend auditions for his new video. However, the director isn't looking for an actress, but rather the girl next door - and so is Andrew. Cecily gets a part in the video and all of Andrew's attention on set. Her friend begins to see red and Cecily's boyfriend is seeing green - as in major jealousy. A misunderstanding leaves Cecily and her boyfriend on the outs and Andre hopes to pick up the pieces as he's looking for someone more stable in his life than the models he's dated. Soon Cecily begins to realise Andrew understands her more than her small-town boyfriend - but can her perfect love match really be her favourite rock star?
This is such a wonderful little book. I'll be honest, I didn't know if I was going to be a massive fan of this book due to the rock star love triangle that I just knew was going to happen but I was pleasantly surprised and was happy with how it concluded. I think what also made this book greater than I thought it would be is how relatable Cecily was as character. As a university student I didn't know if her personality would be too young to relate too but she was actually a really relatable as like her i also had a MASSICE crush on Jay McGuiness from The Wanted so all the thoughts and feelings she went through, I could just imagine my younger self going through too. The worries she also goes through, through school is very similar on how I felt as well. I also enjoyed the other characters such as Zach, Andrew, Lila, Harlow and Tanna as they all brought something to the story line too, to help it stay as gripping and exciting that it was.

This book was incredibly gripping and surprised me the whole way through. It was lovely reading a book that allowed me to reminisce on my secondary school days and almost envy her as I so wish I could go back sometimes. I 100% recommend this book if you are into teen/young adult romance reads as well as if you are looking for a book that will let you look back onto your younger days.
