Product Description

It's always the quiet ones...

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 Entangled Teen Crush book contains steamy make out scenes, graphic language, and a love story so hot your copy may spontaneously burst into flames. You've been warned.

HASH(0xa145a72c) out of 5 stars A twist from the band...and I like it! July 24 2015
By thecovercontessa - Published on
Format: Paperback
I want to thank Entangled Teen for providing me with a copy of this book to read and give an honest review. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my opinion or review.

I was really excited to receive a copy of this book. I love this series and have especially wanted to figure out the enigma that has been Will. Add the twist that it's not Will at all, but his twin brother Matt, and you've got a mix that will certainly satisfy.

I really love Anya's character. As a matter of fact, she is my favorite female character of this series so far. She's street smart, on account of her homelessness. I love that she's a journalist and has been hired to shadow the band. Seeing them through her eyes was fun. Anya has a great way about her. She's curious, but not to a fault. At the same time, she shies away from revealing too much about herself. She's certainly a strong character.

And Matt. I will say I was surprised not to get Will's story. And maybe a bit disappointed because I'd really like to know a bit more about him. But I really did love Matt. The fact that he's willing to sacrifice so much for his family made me like him all the more. For him holding in his secret is of the utmost importance.

This story is fast paced and fun. I still love the second book most, but this runs a close second to it. The story moves and I was never bored. Of course it's got some teen angst in it, would it be YA if it didn't? But it's not overdone at all. And there is some great humor sewn throughout.

If you like reads that are fun and easy with a HEA that is heart warming, then this one is certainly a good pick to add to your TBR. Actually, any of the books in this series are!
HASH(0xa145a780) out of 5 stars This book is actually my favorite among all the Backstage Pass series books. July 17 2015

Format: Paperback
Rating: 3.8 of 5 stars
I received an arc from the publisher to read and review.

This book is actually my favorite among all the Backstage Pass series books. Not only is it edgier, it's also more intriguing.
Anya is a homeless person but she doesn't dare tell anyone that about her much less the new company who thinks she's more than twenty who just hired her to write an article about the hottest boy band, S2J. And in taking the job, she's put right in Will's path. Who isn't really Will at all but his twin bother, Matt who only did the pretend to be Will thing to help the real Will get through rehab. What could go wrong, right?
I love the transition of Anya and Matt's relationship - it was distrust they felt for each other at first which then turned to friendship after a lot of bantering which eventually led them to fall for each other.
I admit I was a bit anxious about how things will turn out once they find out about each other's secret. I shouldn't have been worried though because once the "big reveal" happened, it didn't surprise me at all that it turned out the way it did. Which is my biggest complain btw. (These days contemporary ya novels are becoming more and more unoriginal. Same plot line, same conflict, same ending only different character names and different setting. But that's another story entirely.) Anyway, yes it's predictable and the ending seemed a bit cheesy and too perfect for me but since I'm a sucker for happily ever afters I didn't let those bother me too much. AND I was enjoying Anya and Matt's adventures I didn't really mind all that. I especially love seeing Matt squirm whenever he thinks Anya has figured out his lie. His too innocent act is just too cute! And whenever he's trying to channel Will's shy guy persona, I couldn't help but feel sorry for him and laugh at his discomfort at the same time.

Overall, Anya and the Shy Guy is a lighthearted book with just the right amount of drama that would surely entertain contemporary novels lovers who are looking for a quick read. I laughed a whole lot while reading this and in my book anything that entertains me so is definitely a winner.
HASH(0xa145abb8) out of 5 stars Super cute! July 15 2015
By Melissa @ The Reader and the Chef - Published on
Format: Paperback
Anya and the Shy Guy was the sweet and cute read I was looking for to just have fun. It was a very quick read and I liked that it was not heavy on the drama. I actually think it's my favorite Backstage Pass novel up until now, though the other books have been great as well (not counting book three, still haven't read it!).

This book, like the rest of this wonderfully cute series, can be read as a standalone without fearing that you are missing out on the storylines. This time we get the chance to meet Will Fray, the shy guy of the worldwide boy-band phenomenon, Seconds to Juliet. Only that, it's not actually THE Will we get to meet, but his equally gorgeous and identical twin, Matt Fray. But no one knows that, least of all Anya Anderson, who was given a backstage pass to follow Matt around and dig up his juicy secrets for a magazine.

The reason why this book became my favorite is because I immediately clicked with the characters. Anya was a really great girl. She's strong, hard-working, brave and selfless. Her struggles touched me and I simply loved her reasons for doing the magazine gig. Matt, on the other hand, impressed me with how far he went through to help his brother out. I mean, taking over his brother's place in a famous band? That's a tough thing to pull off. But he did. It wasn't a flawless performance, he did struggle and made a lot of slip-ups, but overall, a good job as he fooled everyone. And he's so not a jerk. He's very swoon-worthy in fact.

While the whole parent trap thing going on was a lot of fun to read about, I loved even more the relationship that grows between Matt and Anya. It was so sweet and at times they even made me giggle like a 12-year-old. Oh, the swoons between them. So good!

The ending was a tad too cheesy for my taste, but it wasn't at all that bad. The prologue was a nice addition to the story and I like how it left me satisfied with the characters' fate. So overall, Anya and the Shy Guy is a great sweet read to brighten your day!

**Thank you to EntangledTeen for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review!**

First off, I have to say that this is my favorite book of the Backstage Pass series so far. I found the characters to have so much more depth than the others, which made me feel way more involved in their story. Plus, there were so many secrets and lies hidden throughout this book which made my heart race, because I was so worried that either one of the characters were going to be figured out.

Anya is working for wowsounds as a reporter, though the website things that she is married with kids. They have no idea that she's actually seventeen years old. She grew up on the streets, moving from shelter to shelter just to get by. She published two articles on wowsounds so far about loneliness and being homeless, which is why they asked her to go and follow around Will Fray in order to write an article about him and the other boys of Seconds to Juliet.

Will Fray in this case isn't actually Will Fray. He's actually Matt Fray, Will's twin brother. A few weeks back, Will slipped and fell, hurting his left knee, which later landed him in rehab. Nobody in the band knew how bad Will hurt himself, which is why Matt took Will's place for a few weeks. He has to try to be just like Will all the time, which is hard because there's so many little facts that he has to remember. He even slips up every once in a while, which is why he has to have clever cover-ups.

As soon as Anya and Matt met, they really hit it off. I like how neither of the characters really held back their feelings in this book, compared to the couples in the other Backstage Pass books. They knew that they liked each other and Matt made it extremely clear that he did. I also loved the lying and deceit in this novel. I know that lying isn't good, but in a book it adds so much suspense! I can't wait for book five!

3.5/5 Stars

Anya and the Shy Guy is the fourth installment in the Backstage Pass series, which chronicles the love lives of the members of Seconds to Juliet, a superstar boy band. I haven’t read the first three books in the series (those of you who know me well are gasping right now – I never read series out of order), but this book really did stand well on its own as a standalone – and now I want to read the others!

The synopsis describes the book really well, so I’m going to jump straight to my review.

What I loved:

The twin story.
I’m pretty much a sucker for a twin switch story, which is why I couldn’t resist this book even though I hadn’t read the first three. And Matt’s story definitely met all of my expectations – the pressure of the twin trying to pass himself off, the efforts to bend his personality to match his brother’s, the little details that he forgets, the one major detail that his brother forgot to tell him (oops!). I really loved Matt and I thought it was fun to watch him try so hard to be Will. His predicament also added an extra dimension to the romance with Anya because he and Will weren’t planning on ever telling people that they had switched – so where did that leave the relationship once Will came back?

Anya’s story.
I also really connected to Anya’s story – her struggle with homelessness and her fierce loyalty to the man who had helped her find her way on the streets. Plus, you just knew that eventually Anya’s cover story with her employer was all going to come tumbling down around her (I didn’t really buy that they hadn’t gotten her SSN and stuff from the first time they paid her – but I managed to suspend disbelief on that one) – so it was just a matter of when and how it was going to happen. I liked how Winegardner tied the band’s philanthropic visit to a homeless shelter to Anya’s story too – she got to see another side of the band there, and it drove her story forward as well!

The negatives:

Lack of chemistry at the beginning.
While I really enjoyed Matt and Anya’s stories separately, I felt a little bit of a lack of connection between them when it came to the romance, especially in the beginning of the book. It felt a little insta-lovey (and those of you who read my blog regularly know how I feel about instalove). There were some really sweet moments between them when I felt a connection, and I was on board with the romance by the end, but it took me a little longer to get there than I would have liked.

Overall, this was a fun read, and I’ve been convinced to read the first three books in the series, because I’m now definitely curious about the other guys in the band. I give this book 3.5/5 stars.
