Jesse's Girl

Jesse’s Girl by Miranda Kenneally
(release date July 7, 2015 )

What happens when an ordinary girl meets a teen pop star?

The lighting is dim, and he doesn’t seem to notice I’m here, which is good, because I’ve moved from ogling the guitar to ogling him. Who wouldn’t? He was one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People,” and it is a truth universally acknowledged that you should stare at people who’ve made that list.
Of course, our main character isn’t the only one who notices Jesse. Here’s what happens when he steps outside his dressing room mid-snack, only to be surrounded by his adoring fans/groupies:
Before I can answer, the horde descends on him. It’s scarier than a zombie apocalypse.
“Shit,” he mutters.
“Oh my God, I love ketchup too!” a girl squeals at the bottle in his hand. “We have so much in common!”

  1. Really love the first quote, I have to admit I agree… if I met anyone on a list like that it definitely means ogling rights 😉
    Have a great day,

    • Absolutely! And then, especially for a celebrity crush, there’s the moment of having absolutely nothing to actually say to the person. I loved the ketchup comment… I’ll have to remember to spring that one on someone at our next barbeque! 🙂
