Crazy dreams, crazy behavior, young being young, making foolish decisions......having to take ownership of the destructive behaviors. At some point, maturity appears & one grows up.....this couple would always be friends. Morgan moved forward into a new life with Ryan & wanted Mathew to find that same peace...... sometimes there is a person who profoundly affects many lives, such was Mathew.

Friendship zone

Amazon sale $0.99 Standalone or sequel to "BOY IN A BAND" Contemporary romance

     “Ryan, make love to me?” I whispered.
     I thought about our friendship. Mathew and I had been friends, were still friends. Ryan and I had stayed friends, after our one night together. Maybe that was a boundary I didn’t recognize. Maybe friends meant something else. Max and I dated for years, and I never really viewed him as my friend, my boyfriend, but not my friend. It was odd to think about it in that way. Max always looked out for number one: himself. Friends looked out for each other.
     Ryan sucked in his breath and pushed my T-shirt up, a clear indication he was open to my suggestion. I wiggled out of it, stripped off my panties, and pressed my naked body into his. He pulled my face to his and kissed me passionately. My hands wandered down his chest, to his flat tight stomach and I could feel the longing burning within, could feel the butterflies rouse. He pressed his hardness into me and I could tell he needed the comfort of a body as much as I did.

Contemporary romance......Standalone or sequel to "BOY IN A BAND"

     When we left the bar she was a bit unsteady on her feet, I could tell the altitude and the Long Islands had gotten to her. I hooked my arm through hers while we weaved our way to the car. The air was cold and crisp, and new snow covered the ground making the street look beautiful. The cold burned my nose slightly when I breathed it in.
     “That Ryan, what a nice guy! I wish you would date someone like that,” she slurred as we walked.
     “Pat or me?” I teased.
     Pat laughed. We knew she was a little drunk.

     “Don’t be silly. You, of course,” she garbled, turning robotically to me. “He seems like such a gentleman.”

When did you know writing was for you?
I started writing a diary when I was very young. It wasn’t only about me, but people around me, things I liked, things I observed. I realize now that I liked characters from the beginning. Going through school I always took creative writing classes. I remember some teachers that motivated me and others that didn’t. For years I thought about writing a book, but it’s a hard thought to put your head around, it seems insurmountable. A very good friend of mine died at 47, he was a talented musician; I always admired his ability to just be able to play. He was my motivation for writing my first novel “Boy In A Band”. It took me years of starting and stopping, telling myself I couldn’t write a book—when I finished it I went wow I did it. That was only the beginning through. Now the characters come into my head and they start to form and build and I know I have to get them out. I just finished my eighth book, which will probably be out in August and it’s funny some days when I sit down at my keyboard I still tell myself “you can’t write a book”.

Love or lust

Shout out to Mirriam Smyth....you got it! http://mirriamsmyth.wordpress.com

Is it love or lust? Is it meant to be or just a teenage crush?
From adolescence to adulthood, those were two questions I kept asking myself as I read Morgan and Mathew’s story. At times, it felt like love more than lust. Other times, it was the opposite. Sometimes I wondered how their attraction survived their younger years, how it thrived in their adult years when they were so different from each other. And sometimes I wanted their attraction to grow into a love that was shared and felt by both.
Told from Morgan’s POV, all I could see and feel was what she did. More than once I questioned her reasoning for continuously going to Mathew. I wondered what her best friend Gayle did: what kind of hold did he have over her?
Truthfully, it was first love. For Morgan, Mathew wasn’t just a teenage crush or some guy she slept with or the bad boy she couldn’t have. It was first love. She lost her heart to him as a young girl and, unfortunately, never received the same from him.
This wasn’t a love story I’d normally decide to read. The on-again/off-again dynamic of any relationship doesn’t appeal to me at all. But here… It was more than that. I can’t explain it. I can only hope you read it to find out for yourself, to experience first love and lost the way Morgan did, to discover what it means to let someone else love you when the one you gave your heart to doesn’t.
Ms. Loomis, you’ve written a well-detailed story that I promise I will read again. It’s a story worth sharing and a story worth savoring. Well done.
