Over It:Kiss Off 2

 Title:Over It
Author: Sarah Billington

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

Oh Poppy things just don't seem to run smoothly for her at all.What was meant to be a fun weekend with her gal pals and rock star boyfriend turned into a adorably awkward mess that leads to heartbreak,new friends, a stalker and great opportunities missed and taken.

Poppy throughout the book is filled with a naivety that bothers me from time to time but her charm and  awkwardness wins me over in the end even if she bothers me every now and then.The story is filled with old and new characters alike.Some old characters are brought back and I loved them like Poppy's parents and Ty.Then there one of Poppy's bff's Mads hat bothers me to no end.I enjoyed that Nikkie had a bigger role inOver then just a past home wrecker.The new character that I loved was from The Himbos he was hilarious.I really like Poppy's cousin Hamish and I wouldn't mind reading more about his change from high school to his current state. His situation with both of Poppy's friends made me crack up. A ton of hilarious scenes are a result of these three people. Then of course I can't not love the scenes withTy's band mates.

Billington has a very engaging writing style that makes you want to be friends with these quirky characters. I'd want to hang out with all these characters.:)The cover was cute and vibrant and fit in well with the previous cover for Kiss Off.I like how you get the music fest vibe from the cover.All in all I liked Over It a hell of a lot better than Kiss Off(Kiss Off Post) and I can not wait to read the third book All Access Pass whenever it comes out.3/5
