About the book
Cecily wants a big life, but can she handle it? Cecily feels like she has it all: great best friends, the beginnings of a career as a model/actress, and she's dating her favorite singer, Andrew Holiday. Then Cecily's best friend Lila begins to ditch her every time Lila's boyfriend calls. Cecily feels lost, but she and Andrew begin connecting more and she's never been in a relationship where she felt so understood. Andrew even begins to confide in her about his anxiety.

Soon Cecily experiences her own anxiety on a magazine photo shoot, but she manages to impress the magazine staff. Just when it seems like all her dreams are coming true, everything comes crashing down when a photo of Andrew with another girl appears online. He swears nothing happened, but Cecily is crushed. She feels like she's lost two of the people closest to her. Was her perfect relationship real or was she in over her head?

This is the second book in the Cecily Taylor series, and although both can be read as standalone novels I would suggest reading both to get the full gist of the romance.

In this one Cecily has to come to terms with not only having a relationship with a celebrity but also keeping it a secret. The secrecy is probably what makes her more paranoid and susceptible to betrayal.

Hager makes a nice little subtle reference to the extremely toxic atmosphere in the world of fashion and modelling. Okay you're right, it's more of a slap up the side of the head with a wet kipper than subtle.

No wonder young people, especially young women end up with eating disorders, self-esteem and mental health issues whilst working in certain industries. Not one thought is given to the repercussions of words, rumours and mindless insults spoken without regard for often very impressionable people. Perhaps a good reason to ensure the right kind of representation and support if entering industries connected with fame and fortunes.

Does this step, albeit a tiny one, into Andrew's world give Cecily a different perspective or rather does Andrew view her in a different light?

It's a young adult romance - a story built with bricks of insecurities and cemented by the drama that drives the young hormonal ego. Hager delivers a read that can be read by ages at the beginning of the young adult bracket and an open-ended age audience.
