How to Seduce a Band Geek by Cassie Mae

Purchase the Kindle edition of How to Seduce a Band Geek now:

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 sister, Brea, for a mentorship program, they strike a deal. In exchange for Sierra keeping her mouth shut about Brea ditching the program, Brea lets Sierra dig for more info on Levi to help get the guy of her dreams.

But when Sierra discovers Levi no longer plays the drums, his family has moved into a trailer, and he’s traded in his Range Rover for a baby blue moped, Sierra’s not sure if she can go through with violating his privacy. She’ll have to find the courage to ask him straight out—if he’s willing to let her in—and explore other ways to seduce the school’s band geek.

Soooooo... I wasn't sure how much I'd like this book as I wasn't in love with Sierra when I read How to Date a Nerd. Okay, now that I've gotten that off my chest, let me say how much I loved Band Geek!!!! Not only did we get more Zak and Zoe in this book but Sierra really developed into someone likeable. No longer was she just Zoe's sister but she was a girl who was finding her own way and falling in love with her sister's best friend. Let me just say how much Sierra cracked me up. Her mind does NOT stop and the majority of it spews out of her mouth--it's great, the lack of filter between her mind and mouth. The banter between her and Levi is more than entertaining. Levi is just so lovable. Possibly more than Zak...though, I'm still on the fence about that one. I really felt for him because of everything that he was going through. Huge changes for anyone to deal with but he still found it in him not to be a bitter and nasty (as most people in his shoes probably would have been). His situation just made it more sweet when Sierra made it a priority to be there for him the way he was for her. 

I was absolutely floored by Sydney's behaviour. I guess I shouldn't be since it's high school and quite a number of people go to great lengths to fit in but holy-sh*t I was appalled by the stunt she pulled at the party. It was just as well, though, because her nastiness just made Adam that much more awesome of a best friend. I felt that Band Geek served as a great lead-in for Adam's character. He's a sweetheart, loyal and oooo I am hoping for something to develop between him and Brea!! Cassie definitely kept Band Geek up at the same level as Nerd was. It was hilarious (I don't think I stopped laughing while Sierra was trapped under Levi's bed) and awww-inducing, all in one sitting. She really gets the first love stories spot on!
