Review: Aimee and the Heartthrob by Ophelia London

My Rating: 4 Stars!


Book Description:
He never noticed her before, but now she’s all he can see…

Miles Carlisle is every teen girl’s fantasy. His rugged good looks and exotic British accent have helped catapult his boy band, Seconds to Juliet, to super-stardom. But after two disastrous and very public breakups, Miles isn’t interested in dating just any girl; he wants The One. And the only girl he’s interested in is not only his best friend’s little sister―and off-limits―but won’t even give him the time of day…

As a kid, Aimee Bingham had a huge thing for Miles…until he made fun of her for always tagging along. Now that she’s outgrown both him and her pigtails. the prospect of spending two weeks on tour with the childhood crush who broke her heart isn’t exactly enticing. Except now Miles seems interested. Very interested. And no matter how hard Aimee tries to resist him, her crush is definitely making a comeback.

But everyone knows that falling for a heartthrob is a backstage pass to heartbreak…







With two great hits that I just devoured, Ophelia London has quickly become an author I know I can count on for a fun, light hearted read just when I need one most. 

And this truly was that, a light read, with just the right amount of romance and swoon worthy moments between Aimee and Miles to make my heart flutter and my face break out in a smile.

And while this did feel a bit younger than her other reads, it was still as good as I have come to expect from London. It is hard to resist a rock star no matter how old (or young) they are. 

I truly enjoyed every minute of this read between the make out sessions in the hidden alcoves, to the swoon worthy love ballads in the hotel rooms, this was just a whole lot of fun.

  9. She looks like Miley Cyrus when she was still wholesome and sweet. I would read this as I didn't see any mention of angst and super dramas.

  22. I'm super glad you were able to enjoy reading this, lovely! Although I have to admit that I feel weird about the name of the heroine, considering my dear co-blogger is named AIMEE as well. It would be hard not to picture her in the heroine's place!
