Over it Blog Tour - Review & Giveaway

Hi eveyone. I have a stop on the Over It Blog Tour today. There is a review of Over It and a giveaway for you all.

Over It (Book 2 The Kiss Off series)
Warning: Sexual References, occasional coarse language.

Teen Youtube song writing sensation Poppy Douglas's lead singer boyfriend Ty's been criss-crossing the country and living it up on tour for months while Poppy has been stuck in the boring suburbs, finishing out the school year.

But it's Summer now, and the best thing just happened: Poppy's royalties for writing the hit song The Kiss Off just came in. She's minted, and she knows just what she's going to blow it on.

Ty's band Academy of Lies are headlining a summer music festival, and Poppy is taking her girlfriends along for the best weekend of their lives. It's all organized: the weekend is going to be full of camping under the stars, backstage passes, VIP rooms and partying like rock stars, not to mention some long awaited one-on-one time with America's favorite front man.

Except, when someone drops out of the trip and Poppy takes the opportunity to mend a broken friendship, it doesn't quite go according to plan. And when she meets her boyfriend's BFF from another band, the paparazzi form their own totally wrong conclusions. There's also the matter of Ty's 'super fan' stalker, but the less said about her the better.

The biggest test of all comes in the form of an opportunity too good to pass up. But will insecurities and jealousy stand in Poppy's way? Can Poppy and Ty's relationship even survive it?

Life is about to get much more complicated for Poppy Douglas, but what can you expect when your boyfriend is a rock star?

My Review
Poppy misses Ty as he is touring and she hasn't got to see him. She has just got a royalty check for her song Kiss Off and is planning on going to a music festival to celebrate with the girls and see Ty. The trip begins to go south in a hurry as two of her friends can't get along and she has a chaperone. Once there she has to be on her best behavior as everything she does ends up for the world to see. When she and one of Ty's friends hang out the paparazzi take it the wrong way. She isn't getting to see Ty much and he has a stalker. This trip has it's ups and downs and she and Ty may be on there way out of a relationship.

Poppy has an interesting life and she cares deeply for Ty. She has matured some from the first book as she tries to mend some friendships she has. You also see how young she is when she doesn't understand the concept of why she should watch her money. She gets some big surprises in this book. Ty I have to say I still love but I didn't like him as much as I did in the first book. He seems to want Poppy to be all about him and is jealous of her at times. He is still down to earth for a rock star.

I love how much Poppy gets into. She wants a normal life but that isn't going to happen to her. If she has one little mishap someone is standing by to take a picture. She tries her best to be a good friend in this book and I love how understanding she is most of the time. I will say this book is better than the first in some ways. You really see more of Poopy and how she acts. It's not about boys or anything but her. She has big secisions to make for such a young girl and i thionk she handles them well. I hated in some ways how the book ended, when you read it you will see why. I know what I hope to see happen to her relationship wise in the next book but I doubt it will happen. This book really leaves you wanting the next book now and I can't wait for it to release to see what happens next. If you love books you can laugh at or just flat out enjoy pick this series up.
