Sierra Livingston’s got it bad for her sister’s best friend, Levi Mason—the boy who carries his drumsticks in his pocket, marches with the school’s band, and taps his feet to whatever beat runs through his head. Sierra racks her brain for ways to impress the sexy drummer, but the short skirts and bursting cleavage don’t seem to cut it.

When Sierra gets paired with Levi’s si

"Have you ever felt like you're exploding from the inside out?"


There is no one I know of who writes young Adult, first love so well. It feels like Cassie Mae has delved into the average teenage brain and taken out all the romantic, awkward, loved up parts and put it all together to deliver a cute, sweet and adorable story. I can't help but fall in love with yet another of this authors hilarious romantic comedies and I'm hoping that those who love this genre will take my

Normally, I do not read young adult. Especially since Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1) by Jamie McGuire (which has been a torture for me). BUT this has been so fun and cute!

So, first of all. There is no "What I didn't like" part. This is, after Switched that is, my favorite book from Cassie. Without a doubt.

"How do I seduce a band geek?"

That's the question going through Sierra Livingston's mind every single day. You see, Sierra has a dilemma. She's in love with her big sister's best friend. Not just a "silly girl crush" kind of love. A head over heals, can't get you out of my mind, I can't breathe around you kind of love. But how can she ever get him to see her as anything other than Zoe's 'little sis'?

OK, so to say that this book had a lot to live up to in my head is kind of an understatement. I thoroughly enjoyed How to Date a Nerd (book 1), and pretty much fell into a total all out crush with Levi from the first moment he walked over to Zoe to see if she was ok. So a book where he's

I was excited to read this book after the first one, which was pretty fantastic. So, as soon as Sofia finished this and reviewed it - it was my turn.

And it was great. I, like Levi, was unable to afford an instrument when I attended public school, but I didn't have a spare one lying around my house. I had to make due with the second best option - I joined hand bells. Although, unlike Sofia with her band picture, I couldn't find a single picture of me playin

I know a lot of authors have problems writing the second book in a series but fortunately Cassie Mae did not disappoint. I freaking adored this book. Seriously. Jump up & down adored it. This book was filled with so much lovely, mushy YA goodness that I just loved.

Gosh, where do I even start?

Okay, let's try it this way...

This book is all about finding the strength to rise above the bullying. The first book was all about being yourself, but this one? It's about staying true to it and not letting every bad thing that other people say get to you.

I'm so proud of the main character, Sierra, because for one, she's a good daughter. She listens to her parents and respects them. Second, she has evolved in

After reading How to Date a Nerd, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from Sierra in this book. In Nerd she was more a background character, but in this installment she's front and center and she really knows how to carry the story. A bullied outcast at school, Sierra hasn't had it easy since the first book and it shows. She puts on a good act, not even really letting her sister in on how she's suffering at school. And then there's Levi, Zoe's good friend and the guy Sierra's majorly crushing on. ...more

Okay, I'm not going to lie, I was scared to start this book, because I didn't think I'd have a connection to Sierra after reading about her in Zoe's story.

But I'm glad I did read it! Oh how I adore Sierra! She's fun and spunky and loyal and dorky and creative. She was so fun to read about.
My heart ached for her dealing with those stupid people and how much she let it bother her. But Damn, did she ever stick to her guns during and after that party. You go girl! Haha!

This story picks up with Zoe’s sister Sierra and her quest to overcome her bad reputation that was unfairly given to her. Sierra has developed the feels for Levi, he is one of the guys that was introduced to the reader in How to Date a Nerd.
Cassie Mae has done a good job writing a clean Young Adult story. She even brought awareness to what goes on at a teen party which I think everyone should be aware of. I really like how the characters from the first book make appearances.

Review forthcoming on http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live...

I received a copy of How to Seduce a Band Geek, book 2 of the How To series, in exchange for my review.

Sierra learnt from her big sister Zoe not to pretend to be who she isn't, but taking that advice led to a reputation, and not one that gets her anything good. And Sierra has an eye on a boy; Levi. To Sierra it seems that Levi gets on with everybody, and that he is the only boy in school who doesn't really have a clique...except that

This book was adorable, as I knew it would be. I think this is now my second favourite Cassie Mae book. Since reading Reasons I Fell for the Funny Fat Friend I have kept reading all her books hoping they would be as good. They have all been great (except for maybe Switched which I wasnt a big fan of) but this one came the closest.

Levi was adorable, which I knew from How to Date a Nerd. But what I didnt know was that Sierra was so aw

How do I seduce a band geek?

Right question there, Sierra. I'm sure everyone would love to know the answer to that question especially if the band geek would be as sensitive and swoon worthy as Levi.

For all of those who have read the first book, How To Date A Nerd, we all met Sierra as Zoe's little pesky sister. I don't know if it's just me, but I didn't like her that much in Nerd. Maybe because details wasn't really given about her which is completely understandable since, well, it was Zoe's st

Why can't you not be a fictional character? Why can't you not live in a book?! I'd take care of you forever, Levi! And while I'm at it, I'd also be glad to have your babies!

We met Sierra in How to Date a Nerd and she was the little sister who played up. This story is set two years later and i was happy to see Sierra and Zoe's relationship had developed a lot.

Levi and Sierra are THE greatest couple yet in this series! I loved reading about a young girl who wasn't afraid to stick her guns about her beliefs and what she wasn't ready for yet, even if did mean wrecking her sister's car!! She made me laugh at her nervousness and antics that she did to get Levi's attention.:)

"I love how you freeze up in Debate, but ramble on and on when you get nervous. I love the way you play video games. I fell in love with your snort, your glasses, your scent. Damn, I love your apple scent. You never drop your gaze when I look at you. You told me no when I asked to kiss you. You wouldn't let me do that unless it meant something. And I fell in love with you for it."

Holy crap. How do I start this review? I just got done reading this one and I’m trying to figure out where to start. Hmm, how about the beginning? LOL

I won this book a long time ago in a giveaway and only just got to it now. My friend (the one and only Krystle from ) told me that it was a cute/sweet read and that she thought it was right up my alley. And of course she was right. It turns out this book was everything she bragged about. I loved it. Simple as that.

This is the second book in the How To series and I love how the two main characters in this book were introduced to us in book 1 and the main characters in book 3 were introduced to us in this book. Hope this makes sense.

Book 1 was about Zoe and Zak and book 2 is about Zoe’s best friend Levi and her sister Sierra. Sierra has fallen big time for Levi but he doesn’t seem to notice, he treats her like Zoe’s little sister. So as the title suggests how does she go about seducing a band geek? Well it

Cassie's books always make my cheeks hurt by the time I'm done. This book was just freaking adorable and filled me with all the happy feels. It is definitely a book that I would pick up on a bad day just to lift up my spirits. I really don't think anything I write can do it justice but I will try. :)

I really didn't think after HOW TO DATE A NERD that I could find another nerdy little couple that I would think we're absolute perfection...boy

Cassie's second How To book landed in my Kindle app to no small amount of squealing. Then came the torture of needing to finish a couple of other books for their reviews before I could open it. The other books were great, but the waiting was not. Sometimes life is just not fair.

Alas, a business trip and the requisite plane trip provided the perfect time to dive in and enjoy. One flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta and the book was finished, leaving me pouting that I have to wait until next year

“My eyes travel up red slacks, a white marching band shirt with a red sash that says ORCHARD HIGH, and finally reach the top of Levi's head fashioning a red and white hat that straps under his chin. He gives me a half smile, and taps his leg with his piccolo.
He is without a doubt, the sexiest human being alive.”
