Description: When BFFs Charlie, Taylor and Jamie go to SupaCon, they know it’s going to be a blast. What they don’t expect is for it to change their lives forever.
Charlie likes to stand out. SupaCon is her chance to show fans she’s over her public breakup with co-star, Reese Ryan. When Alyssa Huntington arrives as a surprise guest, it seems Charlie’s long-time crush on her isn’t as one-sided as she thought.
While Charlie dodges questions about her personal life, Taylor starts asking questions about her own.
Taylor likes to blend in. Her brain is wired differently, making her fear change. And there’s one thing in her life she knows will never change: her friendship with Jamie—no matter how much she may secretly want it to. But when she hears about the Queen Firestone SupaFan Contest, she starts to rethink her rules on playing it safe.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book had everything I love going for it. Fun, fresh characters, friendship, romance, geekiness and cons! All the girls were super cool and very well done, the romance was really nice and I was squealing with joy at a few parts. Overall this was a really quick read that I sucked up between books. It wasn’t completely memorable since I’ve read three books since then and can’t remember everything that happened. That being said it was still nice.
One of my only complaints (and I know some other bloggers felt the same way) was that there wasn’t enough con exploration. I wanted more of that incorporated into the story that it just being a simple setting. I’ve gone to quite a few cons in my time and they are overflowing with things ripe with possibility and I felt like the author just skinned the surface.
I would recommend this to those that like a little geek with their romance but don’t expect some world shattering plot.
