BLOG TOUR: Lennon's Jinx by Chris Myers


Thanks to AToMR Tours for hosting this blog tour. I'm promoting Lennon's Jinx by Chris Myers. Happy reading!

*****************************


Sometimes, we don’t get to choose who we fall for…

Lennon spends most of his time raising his little sister Currie while trying to skate through his senior year of high school. He prefers groupies with no-strings attached but finds himself strangely attracted to Jinx, the straight-A student in his choir. Lennon’s curiosity overrules his good sense as he tries to peel away the layers to discover the reason for Jinx’s skittishness.

Jinx conceals the black truth about herself from her friends. She won’t admit to them that she screwed up big time, losing her first love and what she once held most precious.

When Lennon’s band holds auditions to replace their keyboard player, Jinx comes to tryout and almost leaves after seeing Lennon. Despite the fact she despises him, she joins the band to nurture her love of music that will hopefully ease the guilt gnawing away at her.

Like the rest of his band mates, Jinx soon witnesses Lennon battling his infamous father. While confronting his pent-up anger at his dad, Lennon exposes vulnerabilities he had no intention of letting any girl ever see, especially Jinx. Their reckless pasts may bring them together or further complicate their already messy lives.

~EXCERPT~

Gabby fishes out the thick silver chain from underneath my shirt. The heavy, steel key at the end catches her interest. The small, brass skeleton key hides behind it. “Is this the key to your heart?”

“If I tell you what it’s for, I’d have to kill you,” I say, grinning. If I told her the truth, I’d be expelled from school.

She tongues the steel key, torturing me.

“I love secrets,” she says.

“Good, because I’m awesome at keeping them.” Other than my band mates, no one knows about that key, not even Currie.

Gabby finds the brass one. “Two. Very interesting. What’s this one?”

“It’s nothing,” I say, putting them back. That key is nobody’s business, except mine. Gabby nudges me. “Touchy. Aren’t you?”

I just smile at her. She has no idea.

About the Author
Chris Myers suffers from an overactive imagination. In second grade, Sister Bernice produced Chris's first play about pumpkins mauling and eating children. Apparently, the nuns didn’t catch the underlying meaning. This instantly raised Chris to stardom amongst her peers for the several days off from schoolwork while in production. She spent her high school years writing torch songs for fantasy guys then moved onto writing thrillers and young adult. Chris lives in Colorado with her daughter, her better half, and BeBe, a rambunctious Bichon.

Chris literally has very few photos of herself, even though photography put her through college. Here she is with her sisters and daughter. Chris is the one with the vino.

Chris started out as an art major, then moved to bio-chem, hoping to play Victor Frankenstein as a genetic engineer or messing with people's minds as a psychiatrist. Just as she was about to graduate, she decided being broke for another four to ten years wouldn't work out for her adventurous spirit and traveling. She ended up with an electrical engineering degree then a masters. As it turns out, she should've finished her first novel twenty-five years ago and stuck in the make-believe world where she is happiest.
