"A great finale to the series which I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone who'd like to explore behind the scenes life for a boy band as well as escape into a well written romance." -Elaine, Splashes into Books

Every member of Seconds to Juliet has a girlfriend—except for Nathan Strong. Now the band's manager is leaning hard on "The Cute One" to play the role of the band's heartthrob. With the band's sales in decline, it's up to Nathan to keep the fans' fantasy alive.

The plan is to stage a fake relationship and a fake breakup, and then let the fans fight to be the one to mend Nathan's broken heart. Just one problem. There's another girl in the picture-one Nathan can't stay away from. In private, Nathan's stealing kisses with the band's new opening act, Abby Curtis.

If they're caught, no one wins. Abby will be fired, and the band might not recover the success they need to survive. But even with the pressure mounting, Nathan and Abby can't stop themselves from stealing one more touch, one more kiss. And it's only a matter of time before it all falls apart.

This is an easy read and is full of good feelings. For those of you who are into darker romances this isn’t for you unless you want to try something a little different like I did. I usually read heavier romances but I have to tell you it was a nice change. It reminded me of innocence again but still ...more

This is the fifth book in the series - and I've read, enjoyed and reviewed them all! Having said that, I don't think you need to have read the others to enjoy this one, but they're all great so why miss out on the others?

Wow. Finally, we get Nathan’s story! I knew he was going to be Abby’s love interest when we see him kinda fangirling over her in the previous book. But this was much more fun than expected!

If you don’t know, this series is about a boy band called Seconds To Juliet. Each boy has his own story as a wh ...more

This is the fifth book in the Backstage pass series, but can be enjoyed as a standalone.

Nathan Strong is the new IT boy of Seconds To Juliet, and he’s not happy about it. All his bandmates have real relationships, with girls they love, and he’s on a blind date every week with some starlet he doesn’t ...more

**I was provided this book by Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. This does not change my opinions.**

This is the last leg of the journey on Second to Juliet’s American Tour (does that give us hope for more?). Unfortunately, I think this is the last happy ending that we might get, but not without a little tension along the way. Abby and the Cute One is a wonderful conclusion that will leave your hea ...more

Oh, how do I say goodbye...
The boys of Seconds to Juliet end on a Cute and very enjoyable note. 4.5 Stars!
Abby's spunk and determination to do what was right for her personal and professional life made me cheer for her right off. I want to hear her stories too, I'm sure they make spectacular songs. ...more

What a lovely end to the series.
The Good
The Backstage Pass series has been a guilty pleasure of mine for some time. There is nothing super special about it but there is something there that keeps me coming back for more. It's endearing, it's silly, it's fun. Abby and the Cute  ...more

**Thank you so much to Entangled Teen for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review!**

The final story is about the youngest band member, who is now also the only single one left, Nathan. their manager, LJ, is very insistent that he must remain single, although they want him to seem accessible to the fans, so they have him going on fake dates. One night after a fake date that Nathan c ...more

As you can probably tell from my previous reviews, I have absolutely adored the Backstage Pass series from Entangled Crush. Truthfully, I've loved it so much that I'm not at all prepared to let it go. I just think it was such a clever idea to have five different authors write this series revolved ar ...more

4-1/2 stars.

This review also appears on Swoony Boys Podcast.

This is my favorite of the series.

Abby is the opening act for Seconds to Juliet. When she shares a sweet, swoony moment with Nathan Strong from S2J, she's on cloud 9. Their budding romance is totally forbidden--Nathan's got to remain singl ...more

I was given an ecopy ARC in exchange for an honest review. Abby and the Cute was utterly adorable. I’ve only read one of the other books in the series (they can all be stand alone books, so no worries if you haven’t read the others) but this was definitely my favorite. It’s just so sweet. If you wan ...more

Excellent book to read in one sitting!

Such a fun, cute, lighthearted book, the perfect book to get you to get lost in the story of two teens falling in love for the first time.

Abby and Nathan are two sixteen year old pop stars, Nathan is part of a famous band and Abby is just getting started as thei ...more

Maybe my favourite up to now.
This time it's Nathan's story. He's the youngest of the band, having to take on the role of 'heartthrob'
but above all has to stay single. A chance meeting with Abby and ,oh boy, does he want to go against his manager but that's not so easy!
Tormented story. Do read to fi ...more

I've read all the books in this series. This, like the rest, is a fast, fun read and, for me at least, extremely enjoyable. Anyone liking a romantic series with a touch of suspense and a satisfying finish will like it. ...more

Erin Butler is lucky enough to have two jobs she truly loves. As a librarian, she gets to work with books all day long, and as an author, Erin uses her active imagination to write the kinds of books she loves to read. Young Adult and New Adult books are her favorites, but she especially fangirls over a sigh-worthy romance. She lives in Central New York with her very understanding husband, a stepson, and doggie BFF, Maxie. Preferring to spend her time indoors reading or writing, she'll only willingly go outside for chocolate and sunshine--in that order.
