Hiding in plain sight is harder than it looks…
Dahlia Greene—aka international pop superstar Cherry—is undercover as a normal high school student. She just wants to experience what real life is like, so when she overhears hottie Keegan Matthews nervously talking about liking a girl, she sees the perfect opportunity to live a real life and play a little matchmaker. What was not part of the plan was falling for a guy she can never tell the truth.
Keegan Matthews has been secretly crushing on Dahlia ever since she started at his school. Sure, Dahlia thinks he’s crushing on some other girl—not realizing his Dream Girl is actually her—but he figures, play along with her tips to woo someone else, let her get to know him, and then make his move. But with so many secrets in the mix, their romance is doomed from the start…
Dahlia and Keegan, Book 1 of 3
Dahlia and Keegan Book 2 coming March 2017
I’ve read the majority of this series and what I enjoyed most was that the books aren’t really consecutive. I’ve noticed that the some of the books are happening concurrently and I think that is brilliant. Everyone always has a story and what a wonderful way to keep the stories of this group of friends together than by bringing out concurrent books in one series. SO I’m a little lost because I missed the last one but that will be remedied soon. In the meantime let’s talk about Dahlia and Keegan because these two are swoon worthy in their own right.
Tracy Deebs did an amazing job bringing these two together, even though their meeting wasn’t that long and the time period from beginning to end wasn’t that long it felt longer. They felt like they actually fit in each other’s lives perfectly. It didn’t feel insta even if it might have been. There is a deep connection the two of them have on different levels and I loved reading about them and their journey.
There is a lot going on in both of theirs lives separately but when they come together they help one another cope with the things they are going through. I know that my heart went out to Keegan for being such a great guy in a rally tough situation, I will say that I really loved when he stood up for himself in the end but you will have to read the book to find out what I’m talking about. Dahlia in her own right is going through a lot of life changes as well, not the same as Keegan but definitely as important. These things will change her for the rest of her life. Changes, it’s a part of life and sometimes it’s hard and sometimes it’s good.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end, and even though it’s a short book I was definitely left wanting more because I just need to know what’s going to happen next. I know that not everyone can possibly get there happy endings and sometimes you have to go through life’s tragedies to get to a good place so I’m definitely looking forward to the next book, and can I just say how excited I was to find out there was even a next book because if not that would have been a tragedy in itself.
Overall this was a great quick read that will leave you wanting more and get you interested in this series and the other characters that are involved. I think the cover is super cute and is very Entangled Crush type and I love it because this is such a cute adorable cover as they always are, never a disappointment. Go read this, great for a quick summer read on the beach.
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Tracy Deebs collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where — and sometimes who — she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story — something with a rainbow and a prince — and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes young adult novels that run the gamut from dark mermaids to cyberArmegeddon stories and sexy contemporaries to superheroes.
