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?

I received Jesse's Girl off NetGalley. Thank you.
Jesse's Girl is a sweet romantic story. A story to show a family is not always blood related.
Maya is an amazing character. I loved the way she helped Jesse but also chased her dreams. Even after be dismissed before she never gave up.
"I learned I have to take chances if I want a chance at my dreams"
I loved Jesse. He's a country singer, but he's lonely. His family haven't stood by him which led him not to trust people. When he has an instant attraction to Maya, he does everything he can to keep her at arms length but she fights her way through his walls.
Jesse's Girl is my first read by Miranda Kenneally, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
