My Rating: 4/5 Stars
Synopsis: Who would have thought that a teenager could have a successful career creating makeup tutorial videos on YouTube? For Lacey Robbins, this dream has been her reality. An up-and-coming YouTuber, she has thousands of fans and can’t wait for the day when her subscriber count reaches the one million mark. And when she is offered a high school internship at On Trend Magazine, she figures that this could be the make it or break it moment.
But sometimes your dream job isn’t all that it seems. Her editor is only interested in promoting junk products, and her boss in the Hair and Makeup department introduces her to the larger world of makeup artistry, making her wonder if making tutorials online is all she is meant to do. To top it all off, when the magazine’s feature subject , musician Tyler Lance, turns his broodingly handsome smile her way, falling for him could mean losing her fans, forcing her to make a decision: her YouTube life or her real life?
Fans of Zoella’s GIRL ONLINE will fall right into the world of this YA DEVIL WEARS PRADA and stay hooked from the first blush to the last glossy kiss. (Goodreads)
This was such a fun book to read! I couldn’t help but think of Harry Styles every time I read about Tyler Lance. And turns out, I had good purpose for thinking that. Look at Beth Ellyn’s instagram post about it.
A big inspiration for Lacey and Tyler's relationship in AT FIRST BLUSH was Taylor Swift and Harry Style's real life one (or as "real life" as you can get in the public eye) and her song, Out of the Woods. So, I'm dedicating Day 5 of #maytherebemagic –music–to the one and only Taylor Swift. Whose skills are totally magic. ✨✨✨
Lacey Robbins is a YouTuber who does make-up tutorials. I have never seen a make up tutorial on YouTube but I have since looked some up and they’re kinda fun to watch. Makes me want to try new styles of make-up. Lacey gets invited to summer internship at a fashion magazine and meets Tyler. It’s all fun and romance from there, NOT. 😉
But this really is a fun, quick, read that leaves you feeling happy and smiley. I totally recommend it!
If you were able to do any summer internship, what would you want it to be?
