The Fifteenth Minute (Ivy Years #5)
Rennie Road Books / October 13, 2015 / $3.99 digital
Just because she's famous doesn't mean she's happy.
Freshman Lianne Challice is known to millions of fans as Princess Vindi. But sometimes a silver screen sorceress just wants to hang up her wand, tell her manager to shove it, and become a normal college student.
Too bad that’s harder than it looks.
She’s never lived a normal life. She hasn’t been to school since kindergarten. And getting close to anyone is just too risky — the last boy she kissed sold the story to a British tabloid.
But she can’t resist trying to get close to Daniel “DJ” Trevi, the hot, broody guy who spins tunes for hockey games in the arena. Something in his haunting, dark eyes makes her need to know more.
DJ's genius is for expressing the mood of the crowd with a ten second song snippet. With just a click and a fade, he can spread hope, pathos or elation among six thousand screaming fans.
Too bad his college career is about to experience the same quick fade-out as one of his songs. He can't get close to Lianne, and he can't tell her why. And the fact that she seems to like him at all? Unbelievable.
I’ve been reading The Ivy Years series since hearing the buzz early on Twitter and from other sources, starting with the impeccable The Year We Fell Down, and I am happy to say that the magic continues in book five books and puts the reader back on campus. Featuring fan-favorite Lianne Challice, who first appeared in The Shameless Hour, and Daniel, “DJ” Trevi, also featured in The Shameless Hour, Sarina Bowen asks the question of what do you do when the boy who needs to stay under the radar is attracted to a girl who has lived her life entirely in the limelight?
