Publication date: March 20th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Cecily has always had a huge crush on singer Andrew Holiday and she wants to be an actress, so she tags along when her friend auditions for his new video. However, the director isn’t looking for an actress, but rather the girl next door—and so is Andrew. Cecily gets a part in the video and all of Andrew’s attention on the set. Her friend begins to see red and Cecily’s boyfriend is seeing green—as in major jealousy. A misunderstanding leaves Cecily and her boyfriend on the outs and Andrew hopes to pick up the pieces as he’s looking for someone more stable in his life than the models he’s dated. Soon Cecily begins to realize Andrew understands her more than her small-town boyfriend—but can her perfect love match really be her favorite rock star?
At some point or another, nearly everyone dreams of falling in love with their favorite singer or actor. They’re just dreams, right? What if you’re favorite singer shows up in your city and suddenly, you catch his eye? Can dreams come true? In Krysten Lindsay Hager’s novel, Can Dreams Come True? Cecily is a small-town girl with a huge crush on Andrew Holiday. When Cecily decides to go to an audition with her friend for Andrew’s newest music video, Cecily is suddenly cast in his music video as the girl next door. But, Cecily’s boyfriend is starting to become jealous. Suddenly, Cecily is falling for Andrew, but could a relationship with a famous singer work out?
Can Dreams Come True? is a sweet contemporary romantic novel about a small-town girl, Cecily, falling for the famous singer Andrew Holiday. Although the majority of the book is devoted to Cecily and Andrew’s relationship, their burgeoning romance begins very slow with Cecily becoming friends with Andrew on the set of his new music video. As they spend time together, they find that they are able to connect with each other on a deeper level. It was very sweet to watch their relationship slowly develop. I easily connected to Cecily’s experiences of insecurity and her secret love of novels.
All in all, this was a very light hearted romance novel, and I would definitely recommend to anyone who has ever dreamed of dating their favorite singer.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Who knew all those embarrassing, cringe-y moments in middle school and high school could turn into a career? And who would have thought that daydreaming in math class would pay off down the road?
