Title– Mia and the Bad Boy

Author– Lisa Brustein

Publisher- Entangled Crush

Release– May 19, 2015



This good girl’s about to meet her match…

Ryder Brooks is living the dream—he’s famous, loved by millions of girls, and miserable. All he really wants is to write his own music, not Seconds to Juliet’s sugary sweet pop. In order to do that, though, the “bad boy” of the band will have to play by the rules. And that includes behaving with his new—and super cute—über-good-girl tutor.

Mia Reyes is in fangirl heaven. Tutoring her favorite member of her favorite band? It’s a dream come true…until it turns into a complete nightmare. Ryder is nothing like she thought. He’s crude, arrogant, and pretty much a total jerk. And the worst part? She’s roped into pretending to be his girlfriend so that no one finds out he’s being tutored. Fake kisses, plenty of PDA, and even sharing his hotel room…

But sometimes even the baddest of bad boys needs a little redemption.


Mia and the Bad Boy is the second book in the backstage pass series. I loved Aimee and Miles, but I was very excited to know the other boys in S2J. In Mia and the Bad Boy, we get to know Ryder a bit more; I mean who wouldn’t want to read a story about the bad boy in the band. Ryder needs to get his GED so he can apply to college, the thing is he needs a little help studying, and that’s where Mia comes in. Mia is on tour to help him study, but he doesn’t want anyone to know so Ryder pretends that Mia is his girlfriend. Little did they know that pretending would bring them closer together.

I think this was a very sweet story and that really like Ryder. I think he grew so much and changed. I really enjoyed Ryder’s pov and I think I would have even enjoyed the book if it were solely his pov as much as I did with the duel pov.

There were so many adorable moments between Mia and Ryder, like the day at the fair and the video. That is all I can say with out giving the adorable moments away!!

I must confess I read would like to read Will’s story next. I know there’s more to him and the reason he is “The Shy One”. But honestly I know I would enjoy reading any of the other boy’s stories too.
