Book Description:
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 for the custody of Currie. 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.

My Review
5 of 5 Lennon's Jinx

Can I just say that Chris Myers is an incredible author. She knows how to grab you right from the beginning and keep you reading along until you get to the end and leaves you wanting more and more. I could not put this book down because first I love a bad boy rocker and I love books with music in it. I love music and it is a very big part of my life so when I read stories like this one I am so captivated I can't put it down! This story had so many facets to it that it was never dull or boring but what you read about broke my heart a little because no one should feel unloved by their parents and no parent should allow another sibling to raise their children. That had me pissed but it made the main character stronger and I just love Lennon he is total awesomesauce!

Lennon is in his senior year of high school living his life. He goes through girls like he chews gum. Never having a relationship with them but just having fun. He is in a band and he has lots of groupies. They know where they stand and that is okay with them and Lennon. He does not want a relationship because he has a lot on his plate with school and the band and with raising his little sister. He is rich and his parents are off doing whatever they want so Lennon is left to raise his sister. He takes that very serious and no one or nothing is going to come between them. 

Then Lennon starts to notice Jinx but Jinx hates Lennon because he is arrogant and self absorbed or so she thinks. The more Lennon sees Jinx and spends time with her the more he falls for her. The heart knows what it wants but these feelings are new for Lennon and he is scared because the only person he loves is his sister. But as Jinx lets her guard down she realizes that there is more to Lennon and she realizes she is falling for him to.

Jinx has her secrets that she keeps guarded very well and she is not sure she can ever be in a relationship with Lennon but dammit if her heart will recognize it. Will Jinx let Lennon in? Will Lennon let Jinx in? This book had me feeling all kinds of things and I need book two like yesterday so I can see what is going to happen with these two. I loved how there was no insta love but the two of them have to work at this and work through their secrets and hurts. Lennon will never let anyone come between him and his sister so where does that leave Jinx?
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.

Thanks for reading my book and writing a review and all the sweet comments. Writing never feels like work because it's so much fun. Now if I could just quit my real job.

I hate reading this type of book but I am such a sucker for them. I always end up crying. My kids always say "Mom what were you reading?" whenever they see me crying. LOL
