Johnny Be Good (Johnny Be Good #1)
I'm Meg Stiles. This is my leaving party. And that song we're making a mockery of? That's written by one of the biggest rock stars in the world. And I'm moving in with him tomorrow.
Seriously! I am not even joking. Well, maybe I'm misleading you a little bit. You see, I haven't actu...more
Meg is off to Los Angeles to be CPA (Celebrity PA) to Johnny Jefferson, the hottest rockstar on the planet. She tells herself she will not fall for him but ultimately does. We follow her as she tries to figure out her feelings for Johnny and we constantly wonder...more
UPDATE same day....Yea, I couldn't put this down. Looking forward to book two...starting....NOW!
Johnny Be Good es una historia divertida, atrapante y algo especial. Como les dije, es como un triángulo amoroso (no es tanto así, porque sabemos que Meg ama y adora a Johnny y nunca va a amar a Christian como ama a Johnny, eso lo sabemos). El problema es...more
Si alguien me preguntara ¿Que onda este libro? No se si lo recomendaría! Tiene muchas fallas!
Primero que todo, odio la portada! En realidad, odio los libros con ese estilo de portada! no me llaman para nada. Entonces me decís,¿Porque lo leíste? Bueno, básicamente los chicos malos me pueden, y mas si son de Hollywood. Así que yo leí la sinopsis y no pude resistirme.
Las primeras...casi 300 páginas son horribles. No te dicen na...more
Made life with a rock star (even though that's just pure fantasy) seem very real. She didn't gloss over the more unsavory parts of Johnny's life style (ex. detoxing, alcoholism, groupies, etc).
I felt a great deal of compassion for Meg. Although the logical side of my brain kept screaming, "GAH! RED FLAG! RED FLAG!" whenever Johnny would act like an asshole and purposely hurt Meg, take drugs, get piss-tank drunk, etc... my heart would remind me of wha...more
This book...how to review it? Well, for one: It was just plain stupid.
Meg - shallow, whiny, needy, naive, pathetic and absolutly unrelatable in every way.
Christian - 2d, unrealistic and his actions just never seemed to be justified (if that makes sense)
Johnny - what a prat, sterotypical rocker, pretty much a 2d caricature. What was there even to like about him?
I picked up this book because I l...more
Johnny Be Good, is the story of Meg Stiles, a PA from England. She has been given the dream job of being PA to rock god, Johnny Jefferson, in LA. Amidst all the glamorous parties and showbiz names, Meg's new life is not as great as it seems.
And then, Christian, Johnny's long standing friend from Newcastle, comes into Meg's life and everything changes.
Meg likes Christian, he's so easy to be around and he obvious...more

Eigentlich hat Meg eine ordentliche Stelle bei einer Architektin. Aber ordentlich ist so ungefähr das Selbe wie nett. Wie kann sie da das super Angebot ablehnen, persönliche Assistentin des Rockstars Johnny Jefferson zu werden. Und auf geht´s nach LA. Meg ist total überwältigt von dem tollen Haus, dem Ausblick, ihrem Zimmer. Und auch die Haushälterin Rosa ist sehr freundlich. Johnny ist erstmal verschwunden, doch schon bald ist er fast mehr als präsent und Meg hat...more
Johnny is a seriously dysfunctional Rock Star and Meg is his PA, who rather predictably tries to save him. Unlike books with a similar t...more
Johnny Be Good was surprisingly good despite it not being the typical celebrity romance novel that I'm used to reading. You know, the one where the regular girl falls in love with the super famous guy and vice-versa and all they have to contend with are the tabloids and other women trying to steal the guy.
Meg, our protagonist, does fall in love with rock God, Johnny Jefferson (her boss, btw), but their romance is no fairy tale. I think it's pretty realistic because John...more
Truthfully it did affect my enjoyment a little bit because the parts that would have been shocking just...more
Seriously! I am not even joking. Well, maybe I'm misleading you a little bit. You see, Ihaven't actually met him yet...
No, I'm not a stalker. I'm his new PA. His Personal Assistant. And I am off to La-La Land. Los Angeles. The City of Angels - whatever you want to call it - and I can't bloody believe it!
Celebrity PA to...more
I read the reviews later on and was pretty excited about all the good reviews it got, my friend read it before me and she really loved it. So i couldn't wait to start.
I immediately fell in love with the book. It's very relatable and I bonded with Meg immediately. Like her, i fell for Johnny, and later even for Christian. However I have always loved Christian way...more
Nachdem ich soooo begeistert von "Lucy in the sky" war und das Buch auch jetzt immer noch vergöttere,musste ich mir natürlich auch "Du bist min Stern" zulegen.Ich bereue es kein bißchen.Ich finde Paige Toon Bücher sind ihr Geld wirklich wert.
Es geht um Meg,(die damalige Freundin von Tom,den Halbbruder von Lucy aus "Lucy in the sky").Meg übt den Assistenten Beruf aus von "prominenten" Leuten.Sie bekommt den lukrativen Auftrag die P.A. von dem Rocksänger Johnny Jefferson zu werden.Ehe sie alles r...more
I ACTUALLY pulled the most over the top shocked face at the ending because I HONESTLY didn't see that coming. I spent the majority of the book thinking 'yeah, I SO know how this is going to end' and although one of my predictions came true... I still didn't foresee that little twist =...more
First I read the other book, but when I started reading this one, I couldn’t stop reading. It is an easy to read book and the story goes a different direction all the time, but it is still logical to go that way. It gives a nice look in the life of a pop star. It looks realistic and the headp...more
"Du bist mein Stern" hatte ich mir gekauft weil ich unbedingt alle von ihr lesen wollte,
dabei hat mich nichts daran gereizt, nicht so wie bei den anderen.
So über einen Star zu lesen hat null Reiz für mich.
Aber ich bin überglücklich das ich es gelesen habe und ich konnte es auch absolut nicht aus der Hand legen.
Ich hab auch kein Plan was ich mir genau für die Fortsetzung wünsche, daher bin ich auch richtig gespannt darauf, was sich Pa...more
Well I have read some of Paige Toons books and I have really enjoyed them.However with this book it was different because there were times during this book that I just wanted Meg to open her eyes which was frustrating at times but aside from that what I loved about this book (along with Paige Toon's other books) is that she manages to create believable and strong characters who you really grow to like during the course of the book. Not only that but Paige is capable of creating a great plot that...more
libro así. Lo tuve, ¿por qué mentir? ¡Pero no me esperaba
tantisimo drama! Aunque me gusto -soy masoquista, i know-.
La cosa es que odie-ame a Johnny, lo amé muchísimas veces, pero
el maldito desgraciado no dejaba de cargarla.
Así que lo mande todo a la mierda y me fui con Christian. Pero
soy incapaz de dejar de querer a Johnny, así que estoy tipo Meg,
y bueno, el final, el final fue un total shock.. casi me caigo patas
arriba.. Espero que ella elij...more
I have a problem when it comes to reading my words get all muddled up and I get though 1 chapter and i think to myself this is to confusing i cant read any more!
This is complete different to the above sentence. I went to my local library and the cover stood out at me so I picked it up and had to read the back to see what it was about! I took it out and within the first 2 chapters I was hooked!
I enjoyed how Paige Toon Characterised John, Meg and Chr...more
When we start Meg Stiles has just got a job working for the baddest boy in rock Johnny Jefferson. As I've mentioned before in some stories the main male character was meant to have a bad boy reputation and never lived up to it, however this one certainly did. He frustrated me constantly but I just couldn't no...more
- A review by Natasha
Paige Toon is a great author. I've read her other books and absolutely fell in love with the characters and the scenarios. This was NOT the case, however, for Johnny Be Good. Spoilers below!!
Meg. What a weak, stupid, stupid, cruel, stupid, jerk of a character you are! Don't people ever learn? She actually allowed herself to be completely used by Johnny, on multiple occasions, and had a hard time stopping her obsession with him. I think it was supposed to i...more
Anyway moving on to the review, I enjoyed reading every single pa...more
