Living on a quiet dead-end street Morgan Mallory is like any other thirteen-year-old girl growing up in a progressive time full of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. That is until one rainy night in a dark California neighborhood the lives of two young teens will be altered forever. 

Morgan tagging along with her mother for a day is pressured to make one last stop at a friend’s house. Annoyed to be there in the first place Morgan is mortified when her mother’s friend, Ann, insists she met her son who is playing guitar in his room.

As Mathew O’Conner yanks open the door Morgan is completely taken aback by the blond haired, blue eyed, young man in front of her. When Ann leaves Morgan nervously standing in the hall alone Mathew invites Morgan in where he further mesmerizes her with the sound of his guitar. Completely and utterly unnerved by his stunning good looks and talent Morgan feels something she has never felt.

Is this her first innocent crush or something much bigger? 


One thing is certain, this moment will send Morgan on an emotional journey she could have never anticipated.
Now on to the guest post! We have a favorite scene, a playlist, and Lisa's favorite quotes!

Mathew’s POV when Morgan visits him after his accident in the halfway house:

          When Morgan stepped through the swinging doors my throat went dry. She looked so beautiful and I wanted to race towards her and swoop her up in my arms. I remembered her as a young girl, how I’d tortured her without the full realization of how she felt. I really had been an ass a lot of the time. I realized as my eyes locked with hers that despite our history, she had still come. She’d always been there for me. I pictured her defiant, how she could stand up to me when I’d pushed too far, and felt a stab of guilt. She smiled and started towards me and I wondered what she’d ever seen in me because Morgan deserved better.

Playlist

“Some Girls” Rolling Stones
“Wild Horses” Rolling Stones
“I Can’t Tell You Why” Eagles
“Best of My Love” Eagles
“Wish You Were Here” Pink Floyd
“Grand Illusion” Styx
“Bad Company” Bad Company

Top 5 favorite scenes and why

1.        When Gayle and Morgan are making shapes out in the clouds, lying on their backs in the grass. Why: because it was an innocent time.
2.      When Mathew first asks Morgan to show him her tits. Why: because it was so random, yet so Mathew.
3.       When Morgan goes back to Melanie’s wedding thinking she’s over Mathew and realizes she’s not. Why: because love can make one irrational.
4.      Mathew taking Morgan back to his place after the party incident with Sean. Why: SEX scene.

5.     The ending as Morgan goes back to the Apollo. Why: because her thoughts and feelings tear at me. 




About Lisa:

Lisa Loomis was born in Oakland California and raised in San Jose until she was a sophomore in high school. Her father then took a job in the San Diego area where he moved the family to Escondido, California (or hickville as she called it). She finished high school at San Pasqual High then went to junior college at Palomar JC, ultimately graduating from San Diego State University with a BS in Finance.

Lisa started a career in mortgage banking in San Diego, California, briefly shifted to a corporate job as a territory sales representative, and then back to mortgage banking in 1996 when the family moved from the San Diego area to Park City, Utah. The move to Park City was prompted by a desire for a lifestyle change. Both she and her husband Dennis wanted to raise their two children in a smaller town environment that was still close to a large city.

In Park City, Lisa not only ran a mortgage branch but simultaneously helped Dennis run a successful construction company, Loomis Construction. Working full time, running a construction company in off hours, and raising two children was never easy but Lisa seemed to handle it all pretty well until the financial meltdown of 2008. That is when the wheels came offcompletely.

Finding both her career in mortgage banking and the family business almost vanish overnight Lisa went back to a passion she’s always had, writing. It took Lisa almost four years to write “Boy In A Band”, stopping and starting, telling herself she couldn’t write a book. Once it was written Lisa foolishly thought the hard part was finished. In the last ten years, Lisa has continued to help her husband with their construction business as well as spends time writing.

Lisa’s currently lives and writes in Park City, Utah. She has been married for twenty-nine years and enjoys spending time with their grown children who live in Salt Lake City. You can find her self-published books on Amazon.
