Rating: 3/5
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affects my opinion.

This book was exactly what I was looking; nothing more and nothing less. I really wanted a summer romance book, with all its cheesiness and no substance, and this was it! I can't knock it in any way, because I had a great time reading it. Normally I'm not the biggest fan of the romance being with someone the main character already knows, but I didn't mind it too much in this. I also liked the whole visions aspect, because it brought something new to an otherwise typical story.

I didn't expect to like this book as much as I did! Although I have a soft spot for books about music, I figured this would just be another boy-band book. And yet despite the ridiculousness of the situations, and the instant love triangle, I really enjoyed it. Charlie as a main character was very relatable and I rooted for her throughout. I loved how much Charlie did not car at all about the band, and not because she sympathised with the band, but because she simply didn't care, which was refreshing.

The premise of this book really intrigued me; soaps are such a big part of the UK and millions of people watch them every day. Personally, I've never been able to keep up with how often they're on. Cuckoo really gave me a deeper insight into the world of soaps, and just how cut-throat the business can be. The whole soap drama, with Jake being written off the show for so long was what I liked about the book. What I didn't like was the video diaries and the reenactments - and I disliked them so much I could only give this 3/5 sadly.
