review: Boy In A Band by Lisa Loomis + GIVEAWAY

About the Author

Lisa Loomis writes because she loves to. Her stories are about the human condition: love, life, and everything in between (including sex, drugs, alcohol, and things just crazy enough to be true). Her stories are not predictable, conventional, or lacking in the messiness of life. She tries to extract the real emotion in any given situation in her characters, with a touch of humor.
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.

Finding more BS than Finance with the financial meltdown in 2008 she went back to her passion of writing. See all her books on Amazon, and coming to Barnes & Noble and Smashwords in April 2014.

She now lives and writes in Park City, Utah.

Her latest book is the contemporary rock star romance, Boy In a Band.

My Thoughts: 

Boy In A Band is an intensely hot trip to the 70's, 80's and so on.  Morgan and Mathew certainly have their up and downs in this love/not-so-love story.  Morgan is a girl who just couldn't get Mathew out of her system, even when he continuously broke her heart.  Mathew was really the biggest d-bag I think I've ever read about.  I kind of lost respect for Morgan as she kept going back to him, over and over.  I felt really conflicted as to whether I loved the characters or hated them.  Great job to the author for puling 80 different kinds of emotions out of me while reading this.  This is a great read.  It's easy to read, it draws you in so far you feel sick it hurts so bad in some parts and it will surprise you in the end....korean ending...s'all I'm saying.
