Description from Goodreads:
Practice Makes Perfect.

Everyone at Hundred Oaks High knows that career mentoring day is a joke. So when Maya Henry said she wanted to be a rock star, she never imagined she’d get to shadow *the* Jesse Scott, Nashville’s teen idol.

But spending the day with Jesse is far from a dream come true. He’s as gorgeous as his music, but seeing all that he’s accomplished is just a reminder of everything Maya’s lost: her trust, her boyfriend, their band, and any chance to play the music she craves. Not to mention that Jesse’s pushy and opinionated. He made it on his own, and he thinks Maya’s playing back up to other people’s dreams. Does she have what it takes to follow her heart—and go solo?
Since I mention it ALL the time, it should be no surprise that I love Miranda Kenneally's books...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! She's one of my favourite authors, and she's yet to disappoint me⎯Jesse's Girl was no exception!

When I started reading Jesse's Girl I had just finished a big homework assignment...and I didn't stop reading until I'd finished it! I loved everything about this book. The characters, the music, the story...absolutely everything was amazing!

While most of the other books in the series are focused on sports in some way or another, Jesse's Girl is all about music. The title probably gives that away a bit though. :P It's also very fitting because Maya's love interest happens to be named Jesse.

I'm a HUGE music fan, so I really love how Jesse's Girl revolved around music. It was also AMAZING to see Maya and her family. Maya is Sam Henry's little sister! Fans of the Hundred Oaks series will remember that Henry was a pretty big character in the first book, Catching Jordan. I've always loved how the Hundred Oaks series connects all of the characters, and it was fantastic to get to see Jordan and Sam again! I just loved that we got an update on what they're up to after all this time...especially since we got to see them so closely! :D

Apart from having an awesome brother, Maya herself was wonderful! She was passionate, unique, and an amazing person. I absolutely loved her character and I would love to have her as a friend. I loved seeing her challenge herself, and I really loved seeing her relationship with Jesse evolve. And Jesse! I just loved him all-around, and I really loved seeing him open up to Maya. He also happened to be a sexy, country star which I definitely didn't mind at all. ;) haha

 I loved Jesse's Girl so, so much! I feel like this series just seems to get better and better with every book! At this point, I'd be hard-pressed to pick a favourite, but I wholeheartedly recommend Jesse's Girl...and I also recommend that you go back and read all the REST of the books in the Hundred Oaks series! ;) 

What do you think?
Have you started reading the Hundred Oaks series yet?
And have you read Jesse's Girl?


  1. Ahh! I'm so far behind in this series. I need to catch up to the author soon! I like seeing glimpses of past characters from the previous books.

    1. You definitely do!!! The books are all so awesome, and the next one is coming out soon!!! :D

  2. Ooh, I love that music is the focus instead of a sport. NOT that I don't appreciate sporty ladies, it's just nice to see something different. I definitely plan on reading more from the Hundred Oaks series thanks to you - I also adore that all of the characters from all stories connect in some way or another!

    1. haha I had the same reaction! I love the sporty aspects of the series, but it was really need to have the focus shifted to music! :) Especially since it still links up to the previous books because of Maya's brother.

      I'm so glad to hear that! As soon as I knew you were getting more in contemporary romance, I thought you'd be a fan of the Hundred Oaks series. :) Same here! It's like you get little bonus stories when they pop up again! :)
