I am thrilled to share my review for Call Me, Maybe by Stephie Chapman with you today on blog tour
What if you got a second chance with your first love?
What happens when you meet your teenage heart-throb – when you’re both all grown up? When Cassie was fifteen, all she wanted was to marry Jesse Franklin, the bassist from her favourite band, Franko. Now she’s single, in her late twenties and wondering what happened to that teenage dream.
A chance encounter on Facebook soon leads to a transatlantic hook up, and soon, Jesse and Cassie are having a long-distance love affair spanning five thousand miles.
Cassie is on cloud nine – until she hears something that makes her think that Jessie might not be all that he seems. They say never meet your heroes – but what happens when you fall in love with them…?
Are Cassie and Jessie star crossed lovers, destined to be together? Or should Cassie have left her crush in the box marked teenage memories?
Call Me, Maybe takes me right back to the days when I was so in love with Robbie Williams……Which in all honesty I still am. I had him plastered all over my bedroom walls and wanted to marry him. I think we all had a crush on that one certain famous person back in the day. But unlike Cassie I wouldn’t expect Robbie to friend me on Facebook LOL
She is one very lucky lady when she starts chatting to her teenage heart throb Jessie then before you know it she is hanging out with him. Oh my days this story is so much fun. Things take an unexpected turn when Cassie hears something unexpected which changes things. And that’s all I am saying about the plot. This book is simply brilliant read it for yourself to find out what happens.
I adored Cassie and Jessie they are awesome characters. I also loved the friendship between Cassie and Rachel. This story takes you on a roller-coaster ride with some breath taking moments. With the story alternating between the two of them you can feel the excitement passion and emotion of their feelings throughout the story.
This is a well and truly gripping entertaining read which gave me goosebumps. And boy did it make me smile. I am blown away by the fact that this is the authors debut novel. This is a perfect uplifting laugh out loud story.
It is just Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant…..I cannot recommend it enough giving it all the stars.
Thank you to Rachel Gilby for the book tour invite and to Hera for a copy.
Author Bio –
Stephie was born in England in the mid 1980s, which makes her thirty-something (but if you ask, she’ll probably tell you she’s 27). Now, she lives on the South coast of the UK, has a day job to keep her holiday budget topped up, and two kids and a husband to keep an eye on.
Getting Over Jesse Franklin and Jetplanes to Jupiter were born out of a healthy appreciation of bass guitars (and the dudes who play them), and Franko was very much inspired by her favourite band as a teenager. So now you know.
