The high school play is in two months and senior Wren Barlow just became director. Wren still isn't over the fact that she got stiffed as a stagehand instead of the lead role that she totally deserved. Now she is in charge of rehearsals, costumes, navigating around cast member hookups and managing the real life drama at home.
The principal counts on her to succeed because tickets have been sold and the money has been spent. But when he drops a gorgeous bad boy on her and wants him to help the play for extra credit, she falls hard for someone she knows she can't date. With everything spinning out of control, the mysterious and secretive detention king named Derek has a few tricks up his sleeve and wants to help—too bad Wren is scared to give him a chance to prove himself.
I am a huge fan of Cheyanne Young and I jumped on this tour because this was one of her books that I have wanted to read since I heard about it. Of course she did not disappoint. This is such a great story, super cute, great characters and very funny.
I had mixed feeling about Wren, at some points I felt bad for her but other times I wanted to shake her and say “stop talking and just listen” she was driving me all kinds of crazy. Derek was written so perfectly I honestly loved him. Super funny, extremely hot (in my head he was) and oh my god so sweet. I just loved him. I loved the chemistry between Wren and Derek, the banter between the two is so funny and I just loved them together. The entire cast of characters are so wonderful and I loved they all tried so hard to help her.
The story is really a cute girl meets bad boy, he has some secrets and she jumps to conclusions (like all girls do, I do all the time lol) but he never backs down. He is just such a sweetheart…did I mention that I just loved him 😉
I gave Understudy by Cheyanne Young 4/5 stars, really cute, great characters and super funny, this is a great read. Once again Cheyanne does not disappoint and is a fantastic story teller 🙂 Can’t wait to read more of her books.
