  1. Instead of writing my usual review, I ve decided to write a letter to Jesse s Girl If only books could receive, read and respond to letters clears throat Ahem Dear Jesse s Girl,Gosh darn it, you were a fabulous book But you already know that, obviously I just wanted to let you know that you made me swoon, laugh, smile, and feel tingles all over.You made me cry, too Typically I cry because I m sad, but with you, I totally cried happy tears I was deeply touched by how the Maya s family just oozed [...]


  2. See reviews at YA Midnight ReadsMiranda Kenneally s Hundred Oaks is one of those super cute, swoon worthy contemporaries that you can pick up at any point in the series, and love them just as much as the next person For me, I started reading her books since Racing Savannah book 4 and this book, Jesse s Girl is undoubtedly my favourite one up to date While the first 5 books have all been about sports, this one is different in the sense that the two leads are musicians.Things that I loved about J [...]


  3. Yeah, yeah, I m from Tennessee, where its a crime if you don t love country, but I deep, rumbling beats and singing loud and fast and hard I do not like closing my eyes and crooning to a cow in the pasture I CAN T BELIEVE THIS IS MY FIRST BOOK FROM MIRANDA KENNEALLY Excuse me while I purchase her other books I am missing out, I know that now It definitely shocked me to find out that Miranda isn t on my author to stalk list when her books are the kinds I inhale like crack Books like Jesse s Girl [...]


  4. I think Jesse s Girl may be my favorite Miranda Kennally book to date I use a question mark there because Breathe, Annie, Breathe is still her most poignant and touching, but Jesse s Girl was such a JOY to read It s fluffy and sweet and adorable and HAPPY And lately those are the feelings I ve been desperate for while reading So I hope you all know by now my love of country boys I think it s the gentlemanly manners and the accent Can t forget about the accent Add a country music singer into the [...]


  5. This was a YA contemporary romance about a girl and a rock star.Maya was an okay character, and it was nice how she was genuine with Jesse and didn t treat him like a star.The storyline in this was about Maya and Jesse spending a day together and developing feelings for each other, even though it seemed that they wouldn t be able to be together because of Jesse s career and insecurities The pace in this was a bit slow though, and at times I found it hard to really care about what was going on Th [...]



  6. I leaned that I have to take chances if I want a chance at my dreams Jesse s Girl was my third Miranda Kenneally book and I feel like now I can officially call myself a fan While Breathe, Annie, Breathe, the first one I ve read by her, is still my ultimate favorite and I have a feeling it will stay that way , I enjoyed the other two, including Jesse s Girl, immensely and the same thing will probably apply to the other three I have yet to read I ve said it before in my review of Stealing Parker, [...]


  7. So many sports romances don t have any sports in them, just like rockstar romances don t have any music stuff in them Lots of times IMO neither the authors nor readers really know or care about the music or sport it seems to be all about the stud value of the jock, big time musician etc.Refreshingly this book had music stuff, as well as human stuff and boy girl stuff It wasn t clean, had some sexy times and both the h H grew over the book The romance was slow burn the country boy Grammy winning [...]


  8. Now kinda regretting rating Breathe, Annie, Breathe only three stars I NEED TO REREAD THAT BOOK and remedy that This is not a bad book per se, but I just felt it to be the weakest out of all the books in the series Reading this made me realize how truly heartfelt and moving Breathe, Annie, Breathe was and how it deserves stars than what I gave it before Though this book tackles self discovery much like every other book in the series, I just felt the least connection with this And I NEED to CONN [...]

  10. Maya shadows teen heartthrob Jesse Scott for a day and what she expects to be a boring day ends up being one of the best days of her life He s a reminder of everything that she has lost Maya realizes that if she wants something bad enough, she s going to have to get it herself.Maya ends up being one of those characters that are lost, but will end up finding herself by the end Through her eyes we see her grow into her own and become stronger than ever I liked her for Jesse They made such a good m [...]


  11. I seriously think this book may be my favourite of the Hundred Oaks series Being English, and not all that interested in sport, I ve found I can t really relate to the sportier aspects of the previous books However, I didn t have the same difficulties here.In Jesse s Girl, we follow Maya Henry, the younger sister of much loved Sam Henry our fave from Finding Jordan , as she shadows the country music star, Jesse Scott, for career mentoring day When I was at school we didn t have anything like thi [...]


  12. Ever since first reading Catching Jordan so many years ago, I have loved this series, Miranda s writing ability and the world and characters that she has created I vowed there and then that I would read anything that she has to offer us readers because she really is just that good.Her latest is no different Once again we are thrown back into the life of Hundred Oaks, with familiar faces as well as some new ones but this time, this time we get a sexy, cowboy rock star to keep us interested and to [...]


  13. FREAKIN AMAZING May just be the best book of the Hundred Oaks series yet I m in love with Jesse, and I fell in love with Sam Henry all over again 333


  14. 4.5 stars My first Miranda Kenneally book was Breathe, Annie, Breathe, which I ended up really enjoying when I read it last year So you could say I was pretty excited to read this book After reading this one, I m determined to go back and read the ENTIRE Hundred Oaks series now This book was FANTASTIC I loved it so much And I can t wait to meet of this great crew of characters.Maya loves music She spends her time playing in a rock band with some friends from school So when Hundred Oaks High set [...]



  15. 4.5 starsI loved the premise of this book and Miranda is always someone I love to read, so it was a no brainer.I really liked Maya Her talent and stubbornness was fun to read about It took me a second to realize she was Sam Henry s little sister I loved seeing Sam and Jordan and the entire Henry family It s always so refreshing to see supportive and present families in YA.Jesse is sort of a complicated mess I really enjoyed reading his struggle to balance what he thought was right with what he w [...]


  16. This review was originally posted on Andi s ABCsI dont deny the fact that I am a lucky girl I got to read Jesse s Girl for the first time when it was in draft form and wasn t even called Jesse s Girl I fell in love with it then but I wanted to wait to review it until I had done a reread Honestly though, it didn t matter The book was awesome in draft and awesome in a final copy Miranda Kenneally once again does what she does best and gives you awesome boys, wicked cool girls and a story that will [...]


  17. I adore how Kenneally is always able to make me change my opinion about a character she creates I of course went in to Jesse s Girl expecting to be wooed off my feet by Jesse in this book, but instead I found myself really miffed by his behaviour I couldn t understand that being in the spot light 24 7 and as famous as Jesse at such a young age makes you a vulnerable person that you have to keep your guard up But when a person like Maya comes along and is given the chance to shadow you at least t [...]


  18. I have been hearing about Miranda Kenneally and her Hundred Oaks series for quite some time But somehow I never really got a chance to pick up one So, I was happy when I got approved to read this book on Netgalley And now that I have finally read it, I am happy to say that all the good things I had heard about this book were absolutely TRUE When Maya had filled up the form for career mentoring day saying that she would like to be a musician, she expected to be sent to the local music store for a [...]


  19. Genre YA romanceSensuality PGRating 3.517 yr old Madonna wannabe follows a famous 19 yr old country star around for a school project.I read this bc one of my favorite all time YAs is Catching Jordan This features Sam s sister and it s great to see the glimpses of SamJordan 6 years later back in their hometown and living in sin As for this bk, it s a cute story with homages to Ferris Bueller s Day Off and American Idol.



  20. Finished in one sitting and really really enjoyed reading It was so nice to have the series shift its focus from sports for a change this time, music I totally rooted for Maya s dreams to come true and I was proud of her growth and achievement in the story I also grew to really like Jesse And of course it was such a joy to see Jordan and Sam especially with their family dynamics and how Sam was such an overprotective annoying but completely loving brother to Maya As always, Kenneally s latest in [...]


  21. Solid 4 stars This one is, hands down, my favorite of the 6 Miranda Kenneally books I ve read.Give me a book about the struggles of a musician and odds are I ll take it.I really connect with those.I absolutely loved Maya I loved Jesse the sweetheart so much And Casper and Sam and Mr Logan and errbody Beautiful story line, wonderful characters, very fluffy I m 100% unashamed to admit that there was a lot of smiling and giggling on my part



  22. There s FIVE books after Catching Jordan D Totally buying all of those the day they re released WOW I m excited already



  23. This review can also be found on A Thousand Lives Lived, check it out for Miranda Kenneally has done it again and it s thousands of times better than I expected I WANT TO BE JESSE S GIRL, OKAY As I ve anticipated this one for ages after reading Breathe, Annie, Breathe and even before that I find that we re unable to find that perfect music associated book, and THIS WAS IT I suggest heading over to the bookstore as soon as possible and falling in love right there, at the moment HYPE, HYPE, HYPE, [...]


  24. Miranda Kenneally hat es bisher eigentlich immer geschafft mich gut zu unterhalten Ich sage extra gut , weil ihre B cher keine weltbewegenden Geschichten sind, die man nach Jahren noch in Erinnerung hat Einige B cher waren besser als andere, aber insgesamt mochte ich die Hundred Oaks Reihe immer Jesse s Girl ist das f nfte Buch der Reihe und nat rlich wollte ich es lesen Ich dachte, vielleicht kann es mich mehr berzeugen als Breathe, Annie, Breathe was mich auch nicht vom Hocker gehauen hat Leid [...]
