4☆ Heart Warming, Fun, Sweet Contemporary Romance! Perfectly Suitable for YA Readers!


In Over Her Head: Lights, Camera, Anxiety is the second book in the Cecily Taylor Series.

Again we catch up with Cecily and see how she's coping with her new found fame and romance.
That's all I'm going to say on the plot as if you read my first Review then you would know Cecily was in a predicament as to where her heart lay and I don't want to spoil anything.

But in this book she's made her choice, now she has to

Book 2 in the Cecily Taylor series is a great second book. The reality of anxiety is definitely captured here. Although Cecily is dating a famous person, the realities of her life, the ups and downs, are definitely relatable.

Krysten Lindsay Hager captures the teenage experience really well in this series. All the emotions you experience as a teenager, then heightened by the idea of secretly dating your celebrity crush, all culminates into an entertaing read.

This is a refreshing contemporary roma

This is the second book in the Cecily Taylor Series; it can be read as a standalone. So, Cecily is now Andrew Holiday’s girlfriend. It isn’t public knowledge. When she does see him it’s all very romantic, when she doesn’t see or hear from her due to his work her mind does go on overdrive, especially when she sees photos posted online of him with other girls. One photo, in particular, sends her over the edge, the trust issues come up again, is their relationship over?

Cecily's life has moved on, she's living the dream, in book two, of The Cecily Taylor series. However, she experiences anxiety problems, when her friendships fail and her secret relationship is threatened. The disparity between the real world and the celebrity world leaves Cecily with low self-esteem and makes her doubt her relationships. If you haven't read the first book in the series, you may want to, as it introduces the characters and sets the scene for this story.

This series is aimed at

Great writing and plot!!

The title really covers the story! Cecily has so much on her mind that it feels as though it will spill over. Can she handle all the pressures that are associated with being the girlfriend of a very popular guy, her career of choice and her friends who seem to be in their own world?

I am new to the work of Krysten Lindsay Hager, but I quite enjoyed how this was written. The characters are well written and the story flows from the start to the end.

Love this book.

Absolutely loved this book. It is so well written and deals with what teens are going through. The insecurities that not only teenagers feel but many adults feel as well.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own.

This is the second book in the Cecily Taylor Series. In this installment we pick up right where the first book, Can Dreams Come True? finishes. In this book we get to experience more of Cecily's relationships with Andrew, her friends and even her family members.

Once again, Krysten delivers us an innocent and sweet read as we continue on in the life of Cecily Taylor

Ahhh… all the angst of the teen years.

I am the mother of teen daughter. I’ve seen how it doesn’t take much to create problems, or to cause the tears to flow, so it shouldn’t have surprised me that our heroine is in tears in the first few pages of this book. As an adult, I honestly rolled my eyes a bit at what seemed to be an overreaction to the situation, but…I do remember being a teen. I wouldn’t go back to those days on a bet!

Cecily is a sweetheart. I really liked her. And I liked Andrew. I di

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

First of all, I did not read the first book in the series, but I am well aware of Krysten Lindsay Hager (although this is the first book of hers that I am officially reviewing). When it comes to Young Adult books, this is the author to choose. There is NOTHING inappropriate in this book of hers, and I believe that teenage girls searching for "chick lit" that a

Getting up early is my least favorite thing on the planet—other than pop quizzes—but today I had to get up so I could see my boyfriend before he flew off to L.A. Boyfriend. I couldn’t believe I could now call my favorite singer of all time, Andrew Holiday, my boyfriend.

This is book 2 in the Cecily Taylor series and I did not read book 1. It can be read on its own, though it took some time for me to get up to speed on Cecily and Andrew’s relationship.

I have read the very first book of this series. Therefore I did not hesitate to read the second one. This is what made me the book so special to me;

The Characters – Specially the character of Andrew, made me want him as my boyfriend 🙂 😉 He is understanding and he is the type of boyfriend, every girl wishes for.
The story deal with a few deep topics, such as anxiety, dealing with anxiety and relationships at a deeper level.
Completely romantic and cute, full of love and drama.

In Over Her Head is the second in the Cecily Taylor series, and takes place directly after the events of the first. Here, we follow Cecily discover what it means to privately date a celebrity, deal with jealousy, and be rocketed into a world she absolutely didn’t prepare for. Can she do it? Is her and Andrew’s relationship too fresh and new to withstand the storm? Only time, and a lot of dedication and self-reflection will tell. Are they even ready for this? Who knows.

Grand read

Hager pens a grand story in In Over Her Head: Lights, Camera, Anxiety. It's a grand story about Cecily, and her ups and downs. She is a strong character, yet she also anxiety (hence the title of the story). Cecily is challenged, especially when her perfect world starts to slowly break apart and crumble. The reader is taken on Cecily's journey, as she falls out of perfection, and has to truly deal with more than she bargained for. It's a well-written, well-developed story, with great ch

In Over Her Head: Lights, Camera, Anxiety is the 2nd book in The Cecily Taylor Series, so it really is a bit important to read Can Dreams Come True? (Book 1) FIRST! Cecily is a sweet girl with a few good issues, but nothing that would make me dislike her whatsoever. She thinks life is going great with Andrew, who has a HUGE heart, and they actually are when BAM! See, she's trying to become a famous actress, and he's a rock star, so you already know that the media will become a problem, and it do ...more

This is the perfect angst-ridden teen love story with a twist. Cecily has problems with anxiety, and this issue bleeds into everything in her day from school to her social life. It's an issue so many teens face today, and I thought it was well written by this author. We're taken into the mind of a teen girl who has anxious thoughts about everything - tests, friendships, her parents, her career choices, and her love life. When she connects with another soul who has the same issue, eveything in bo ...more

Is it all only glitter and glam?
 
The adventures of Cecliy continues. She is now officially dating Andrew. As to say, as officially as possible, because Andrew wants to keep the relationship a secret.
Not because he’s ashamed, but he wants to protect Cecily.
But Cecily is happy with this, because even despite the distance between them, the connection they have is real.

But when her best friend Lila is putting her and Allie aside to be part of the popular chicks, Cecily feels more alone than she

Self esteem.

Lies at the heart of this YA read. Cecily is in her first sort of secret relationship with Andrew.

Told first person, from Cecily’s pov this was a nice YA read that dips a little toe in a tiny bit of Adulting 101.

She will need to confront an image of Andrew with another girl.
