Book Shelf: Abby and the Cute One (Backstage Pass #5) by Erin Butler

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.

Abby and the Cute One by Erin Butler is the fifth and final instalment in the Backstage Pass series and tells the tale of the last single Seconds to Juliet member remaining Nathan, and the singer/songwriter who steals his heart.

I must admit, I really am sad to see this series come to an end. All the novels in Backstage Pass series have been fresh, fun contemporary reads that are littered with romance, friendship and entertainment. Just downright enjoyable stories; this series is one that has been easy to get lost in, and Abby and the Cute One is no exception.

Nathan Strong is the last single man standing, having watched all his bandmates fall in love and pair off, and with that status comes great responsibility. Nathan’s manager expects him to be the eligible bachelor he is and go on a series of PR related dates to boost Seconds to Juliet’s media interest. This isn’t a problem…..until Nathan meets Abby Curtis, the hot new talent who will be opening for them on their recent tour. Sweet, genuine and honest, Abby is someone Nathan actually wants to be with, but with stolen kisses and secrets rendezvous getting harder and harder, both Abby and Nathan must decide what is most important and what they are willing to fight for; their careers or each other?

If I’m honest, Abby and the Cute One isn’t my favourite book in this series by far, but it really was a sweet, enjoyable read. I’ve loved following these boys and seeing them fall for their respective girls. Nathan just rounded out a great bunch in lovely, sweet fashion.

Nathan and Abby were really down to earth characters, even though he is technically an internationally renowned music sensation. They had an endearing chemistry and the fact they shared a passion and love of music saw them bond and connect really quickly.

Obviously there is some drama and a lot of teen angst in this novel, but it’s hard to do anything but follow Nathan and Abby along for the ride and enjoy everything that Erin Butler has written.

Cute, fun and very sweet, Abby and the Cute One is an enjoyable conclusion to what has been a very enjoyable series. I’m sorry to see my time with the Seconds to Juliet boys come to an end, but I highly recommend anyone who hasn’t read the series yet to do soyou won’t be sorry!
