From Goodreads:"I should've known this was going to happen when I married you!
Meg's life has taken a turn for the perfect. She is the envy of millions with her drop dead gorgeous husband, their two beautiful sons and her new mansion in Henley. Her celebrity PA days are over. But desperate to keep up with her rock star husband, Johnny Jefferson, she uproots her perfect family and moves back to LA.
Meg has to learn to live with her new celebrity status and the insecurities of her old life, which keep reappearing. Under the paparazzi flash of an A-List party, complete with red carpet, champagne and canapés, Johnny's rock star past catches up with him and Meg's worst nightmare becomes a reality…
But you did marry me! For better or for worse."
Right from the moment I heard about this short novella I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I have devoured everything Paige Toon has ever written and I've adored all of them. Ever since I read her debut Lucy in the Sky I have been in love with everything Paige Toon and Johnny's Girl is no different.
Meg's life is perfect. She's married to the love of her life and has two beautiful children. The only thing Meg finds difficult is the life in the spotlight since her husband is a rock star. Caught up in the whirwind that is Hollywood life Meg is slowly starting to love her life again. But then a bombshell is dropped and Meg's worst fears are realised. Can she and Johnny come out of this stronger than ever or is it just too much for Meg to handle?
I loved Johnny's Girl. I love the title, I love the inside, I love everything about it. Once again Paige Toon drew me in and I couldn't stop reading until I had devoured the entire thing. It was just fantastic being back in the A-Lister world of Johnny Jefferson. He is one of my favourite characters of all time. I just adore him and Meg. My one complaint about Johnny's Girl would be that it just wasn't long enough. I came to the end and was still pressing the next button on my e-book because it couldn't be over. It just couldn't.
Johnny's Girl was the perfect conclusion to Meg and Johnny's love story and the perfect beginning for the next chapter of their life. I look at Johnny's Girl as a sort of prequel to the upcoming The Accidental Life of Jessie Jefferson. I am so excited to read about Jessie and see everything from her point of view. It's going to be absolutely amazing and Johnny's Girl has got me so excited for the YA series. January cannot get her fast enough.
"I'll always love you, Johnny. I always have and I always will."
