Book review: Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn - Tilly Tennant

Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn



The blurb.

There’s only one man for Bonnie, and that’s Holden Finn.


The problem is that Holden Finn is a twenty-three-year-old pop megastar with his boy band, Every Which Way, and has no idea she exists. Not only that, but half the women in the world want to be Mrs Finn, including Bonnie’s teenage daughter, Paige. The real men in Bonnie’s life do nothing but let her down, but a man you can’t possibly have can never do that… right? She’s safe inside her fantasy bubble.



Then Paige wins a radio competition to meet Holden and the band, and Bonnie’s carefully-constructed world starts to unravel. She is about to find out that you should be very, very careful what you wish for …





My opinion.
Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn was probably one of the most anticipated novels of January '14... and rightly so. I absolutely loved it. Bonnie is a fresh, down to earth main character. A single mum holding on to a teenage crush trying to keep the peace with her - actual - teenage daughter and resisting a second chance at love.

Bonnie is not in a happy place. She has an annoying boss and a not so glamorous job, a demanding teenage daughter who's father left them two years ago and bills to pay. She's been lonely and struggles to accept that she deserves a second chance at love, and to trust men again. Accept of course, Holden Finn. Hot, sexy, young, ... and most of all unreachable and perfect. Or is he?

I loved how the scenario of meeting Holden Finn and the band was actually really plausible and I especially loved that real life didn't stop from happening because she met some "megastar". Bonnie is a very lovable character and you can't help hoping for a happy ending for her... and Paige; although there were times I wanted to shout at someone. New found respect for parents with teenage daughters - sorry mum and dad!

The story  has some unexpected twists, is funny, romantic,... you won't be able to put it down. 
It's absolutely brilliant.

to read and review your book. I absolutely loved every page. 
Thank you


About the author.


Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset but now lives in Staffordshire with her slightly nutty family. Tilly is married to Mr Tennant (not that one, though a girl can dream). She likes nothing better than curling up in a quiet corner with a glass of wine watching the world go by, but can more usually be found taxiing her daughters to parties or taking them on emergency shopping trips. After a huge list of dismal and disastrous jobs over the years, including paper plate stacking , shop girl, temporary secretary in a hospital to boost her income whilst doing a degree in English and creative writing. This job lasted nine years. Not terribly temporary. But it does mean that she knows just what it's like to make monumental admin cock-ups, spend the month's wages in the hospital coffee shop and fall in love with all the doctors. As she's smug married, however, it's fortunate that the doctors in question don't usually feel the same way.
Tilly is represented by the wonderful, gorgeous Peta Nightingale at LAW.
