Cait’s ARC Review of “Wylder and the Secret Rockstar” by Michelle MacQueen and Ann Maree Craven

How much trouble does it take to forget your summer fling is now your English teacher?

A lot.

That’s right, Wylder Anderson, troublemaker extraordinaire, didn’t see this one coming. When she walks into class the first day of her senior year, Wylder’s ex is just a fond memory. Until she sees him.

Sebastian Cook.

Dating a teacher is so not on Wylder’s agenda for the year. Vowing to keep her distance and focus on school, she jumps headfirst into a music project with Logan—the twin brother of Wylder’s superstar nemesis—and also the younger brother of Sebastian.

Yeah, that Sebastian.

The Cook brothers are going to be the death of her.

But they have a secret. A dangerous truth they’re hiding from the world that could burn their carefully constructed music empire to the ground.

Is Wylder the spark that will ignite that fire? Or is she the solution?

And is Logan Cook just an average high schooler, trying to make it to graduation? Or is he a secret rockstar, eager to disappear from the spotlight that was never meant to be his?

One ex-boyfriend/teacher.

One jerky superstar rocker.

And a boy who is anything but what he seems.

Who are these brothers? And why can’t Wylder stay away from them?


*I received a free advanced copy of this book from the authors for my honest review.

When I heard Wylder was getting her own series, not a book but whole series, I was beyond excited, and this did not disappoint. I loved her brief appearances in the Redefining Me and Discovering Me series, but when I read her short story in the ‘Tis the Season for Love anthology… I was immediately sucked in even more.

I love the development of this story and seeing how much Wylder has grown since we met her back in the first series as Beckett’s younger sister. She’s completely her own person, and her personality is everything. She’s a troublemaker with a heart of gold. She’s bold and fierce and relatable all at the same time.

We also get to see the return of the beloved Killian and Diego (and Will), which made me super happy. The story felt like a natural continuation of the other series, but it can be read on its own. There was so much tension going into this story because Wylder never expected to see Bash again after their brief summer fling, and now he’s her teacher. But as much as I loved him in the anthology short story, he is no longer my favorite Cook brother… To say Logan grew on me very quickly is an understatement.

This book was fun and light, yet there were deep moments between the characters as they began opening up to one another. As always, these authors found that perfect balance. I could not stop reading, and I’m dying to find out what happens next!
