"If you're looking for an excellent, well-written, cute, fun YA romance read, Anya and the Shy Guy is well worth checking out. I adored it!" -Deanna, Okie Dreams Book Reviews

Anya Anderson doesn’t just need a big break, she needs any break. Living on the streets doesn’t leave a girl many options, so when she scores a gig reporting on the Seconds to Juliet tour, she jumps at the chance to earn enough money to sleep somewhere safe. And the paycheck will get bigger—and keep her off the streets for good—if she can dig up dirt on Will Fray, the irritatingly hot “shy guy” of the band.

Problem is, Will Fray isn’t who everyone thinks he is. In fact, he’s not Will at all. Matt, Will’s identical twin, is actually the guy onstage, reluctantly covering for his brother while he’s in rehab. To make matters worse, Matt’s being shadowed by a cute reporter with troubled eyes determined to get the scoop. On him. And he’s having trouble finding the willpower to keep his distance…

But if the secret gets out, it won’t just be his head on a platter—it’ll be the whole band’s.

This series just keeps getting better and better. Every band member of Seconds to Juliet have a special place in my shelf and heart, but Will-- I mean Matt.. is extra special. Like, extra extra special.

This is the 4th book in the Backstage Pass series, but can be enjoyed as a standalone.

This is such a cute and sometimes heartbreaking story! And I really love how it's a bit edgier than the previous Backstage Pass books, keeping the series fresh, and readers of the series always on their toes. Mostly, though, I LOVE the romance. :) There are so many amazing scenes with these two secr ...more

I have a crush on The Shy Guy. I have a crush on Will. I mean Matt. Yeah, Matt. Did you catch that?! Will is really Matt, Will's twin brother. When I first read that, I was all "What the what?" How did that happen? How can Matt pull it off? Who is in on the switch and how long can he keep ...more

By Riki July 12, 2015

This book is a fantastic addition to the Backstage Pass series. What I've loved so far about all of the books in this series is how independent and strong the female leads have been, and that has never been more true than in ANYA AND THE SHY GUY. Anya's backstory is so freaking compelling, and I lov ...more

A little far-fetched but I still loved it.

Awwww you guys! While ANYA AND THE SHY GUY had a couple of tiny continuity issues and it was pretty far-fetched, I couldn't help myself. I loved it.

There's always something fun about the twin-swap in a romance and I totally fell hard for Will/Matt. If you ad ...more

Cute romance about a girl who doesn't want anyone to know who she really is and a boy who isn't who everyone thinks he is. I read it in one sunny summer afternoon.
