A novella prequel to the edgy Heavy Influence Trilogy about young, intense and reckless love between a rising rock star and his younger muse. Follow their journey through temptation, deception & forbidden love.

17 year old high school senior, Jake Masters, front man of a rising rock band, finds new interest in his younger freshman next door neighbor Alyssa Montgomery. Their relationship breaks hearts; stirs jealousy and band infighting. When they’re brought to new found awareness of body and soul, will rightful boundaries be crossed? Will the right decisions and choices, which are detrimental to the band and its future, be made through the haze of infatuation? Will Jake’s absences on the road lead to another filling his shoes? Jake and Alyssa’s lifelong friendships are strained and tested; secrets are kept, admitted and shared. Family bonds are broken, as others grow stronger. Who knew a first love could cause so many problems? Then again, in their eyes, there are no problems as long as they’re together. In the end, will his new found muse bring down everything he’s worked so hard to achieve or will she inspire positive creative change; that will carry him and his band to stardom.

My mini take...
Jake is 17 and on the fast track to becoming a huge success in the music world. Alyssa is his 14 yr old next door neighbor; the younger sister to his once best friend. It has been years since they hung out but Jake is starting to see Alyssa in a different light. After spending one day together he realizes he has feelings for her and wants to know everything about her. A couple minutes is all it took for Alyssa to notice that Jake is more than just her older brother’s old best friend…and boy does he smell good too.

If First Kiss is anything like Skid Out...then it is going to be friggin awesome. I was floored at how much more I craved of the story after finishing this 50 some odd page novella. No lie…I was hooked on these characters just pages into the book. Frohoff did a great, nay, a stupendous job getting the attention of her readers…teasing us with just a few well written pages. The buildup to First Kiss is huge! I am that far gone…wanting, needing First Kiss. I am absolutely, positively looking forward to what all will transpire between Jake and Alyssa and everyone involved.

Skid Out is a must read. Spare a few minutes and pick this quick read up and I can promise you are going to be counting the days when First Kiss releases!
