Title- Abby and the Shy One

Author- Erin Butler

Publisher- Entangled Crush

Release- November 16, 2015



He’s cute. He’s famous. And he could ruin everything…

Every member of Seconds to Juliet has a girlfriend-except for Nathan Strong. Now the band’s manager is leaning hard on “The Cute One” to play the role of the band’s heartthrob. With the band’s sales in decline, it’s up to Nathan to keep the fans’ fantasy alive.

The plan is to stage a fake relationship and a fake breakup, and then let the fans fight to be the one to mend Nathan’s broken heart. Just one problem. There’s another girl in the picture-one Nathan can’t stay away from. In private, Nathan’s stealing kisses with the band’s new opening act, Abby Curtis.

If they’re caught, no one wins. Abby will be fired, and the band might not recover the success they need to survive. But even with the pressure mounting, Nathan and Abby can’t stop themselves from stealing one more touch, one more kiss. And it’s only a matter of time before it all falls apart.


What a fantastic way to end a fantastic series! I’m extremely sad that it has come to an end, but delighted that it ended just how each of the other books were.

Ms. Butler did a great job telling Nathan’s story. He is known as the “cute one”, but now that he’s the last single one in the band, his manger is putting a lot of responsibility on him. He’s willing to go along with everything that is until he meets Abby. Abby is a sweet girl who loved to sing, but she doesn’t have the experience. After meeting Nathan and winning the opening act spot on tour, Abby begins to flourish.

I do have to talk about Abby’s audition song, its one of my favorites! It had me listening to Cristina Perri for the next week on repeat. I thought A Thousand Years was a great choice to win over our favorite Seconds to Juliet Boys.

Just like the first four books, this was an easy read that is hard to put down. It was also a very sweet one. Abby and Nathan had such great chemistry and it was a joy to read their story.



Erin Butler is lucky enough to have two jobs she truly loves. As a librarian, she gets to work with books all day long, and as an author, Erin uses her active imagination to write the kinds of books she loves to read. Young Adult and New Adult books are her favorites, but she especially fangirls over a sigh-worthy romance.

She lives in Central New York with her very understanding husband, a stepson, and doggie BFF, Maxie. Preferring to spend her time indoors reading or writing, she’ll only willingly go outside for chocolate and sunshine–in that order.

Erin is the author of BOUND IN BLOOD, a YA paranormal novel, HOW WE LIVED, a contemporary NA novel, and the YA contemporary romance titles, FINDING MR. DARCY: HIGH SCHOOL EDITION and FALLING FOR SHAKESPEARE. Find out more about her at or @ErinButler on Twitter! You can also sign up for her newsletter here:
