Blog Tour: Lennon's Jinx by Chris Myers


Welcome to my stop on the Lennon's Jinx Blog Tour Organized by AToMR Tours. On my stop I have a teaser for you. For the full tour schedule click on the banner above to be taken to the tour page.

Title: Lennon’s Jinx
Author: Chris Myers
Expected release date: January 15, 2013
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age Group: New Adult
Tour organized by: AToMR Tours


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.

Teaser

I stuff my hands in my leather bomber pockets and attempt to study the floor instead of what the blondes aren’t wearing. It’s not working. Both have on very short skirts so that the slightest bending over shows the bottom of their firm butts. Thong underwear makes a “T” at the top of their hip-hugging skirts. They teeter on six-inch Lady Gaga heels, but I’m still taller. 

One has a spandex top that was sprayed on while the other’s is unbuttoned almost to her navel so that her red lacy bra peeks out. I try not to think about burying my face in the midst of Victoria Secret heaven. A few beers and I’ll be there. Why do girls do this to guys?


Love this teaser!! What do you guys think? I think this book sounds fantastic and I can't wait to read it.



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 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.

    1. I think the cover is cute!! The font is a bit odd, but I think the girl on the front just really stands out with how red her hair is. It sounds really good though.
