Passing her first semester of community college? Done.

Getting her boyfriend an amazing birthday gift? Done.

Throwing up in New Orleans on said boyfriend’s birthday? Yeah…about that…
Everything in Libby’s life was falling into place…or she thought it was.

After a night of sin in New Orleans, she thought she might just be sick from exhaustion but a trip to the doctor proved otherwise.

Now instead of moving forward, her and commit-a-phobic boyfriend Blaine Crabtree have to go in a completely new direction.

Every road block has gotten in their way. Everything to tear them apart. Now they have to figure out if they are strong enough to move forward or if this is the end of their paper trail.

I met his eyes. Starring into his deep baby blues, there was no way I could ever say no to anything he asked.

“I do. Always.”

He smiled and I looked back out the window, and slowly crept forward over a small hill. Once we were at the bottom of it, I gasped at the sight before me.

There were rows and rows of rusting white stands that probably once houses radios to listen to the movie, but now were empty. They all stood there like soldiers facing a large, white screen that was ripped down the middle. But that wasn’t the impressive part.

Over the entire area was a large stretch of clear blue sky and millions of twinkly stars. It looked like something out of a planetarium that was manmade. There was nothing to obstruct the view, just the sky and the land before.

“Wow. This is really pretty.”

Blaine laughed. “I told you.”

I pulled and parked near one of the stands, wondering what I was supposed to do next. But Blaine decided that for me and reached over, turning off the car and putting the keys in his pocket.

“What are your plans now?” I asked, cocking an eyebrow.

He smiled and reached into the backseat, grabbing an LSU blanket before opening his door and hopping out.

“I told you no outdoor sex!” I yelled, getting out of the car and following him to the truck bed.

He shook his head. “I didn’t say anything about that.”

With that, he lowered the tailgate and hopped in the back of the truck, spreading out the blanket. He then reached his hand out to me. “Come here.”

I raised a quizzical eyebrow, but gave him my hand anyway and let him help me into the truck. I took the seat next to him, waiting on his next move.

“Now lay down with me,” he said.

I was going to protest, but he put his arm around me and pulled me at his side as he lay on his back.

If I thought the view was a sight coming into the theatre, it was even more beautiful lying down and looking at the sky above. Everything swirled in a mix of dark blue and purples with sprinklings of bright stars. The moon was a tiny crescent, like it was just an accessory to all of the constellations.

“How could someone pay attention a movie when they have this beautiful of a view over their heads?” I asked.

“I don’t know. I haven’t been able to pay attention to much else since the most beautiful girl walked into my life. Even the stars.”

Bio:  Magan Vernon has been living off of reader tears since she wrote her first short story in 2004. She now spends her time killing off fictional characters, pretending to plot while she really just watches Netflix, and she tries to do this all while her two young children run amuck around her Texas ranch.

K – Kind of Off Topic

a-to-z-letters-kI’m taking a topic break to share a special Tattoo Tuesday post.  I know it’s Friday, but this couldn’t wait. It’s that good. I conducted a cool character interview to celebrate Magan Vernon’s new release, The Only Exception.

Allow me to introduce you to Monica Remy.


1. Tell me a little about your background. Where are you from and what was your childhood like?

Well, just getting right into it, aren’t we? Um, okay, where to start? I’m originally from Central Illinois and lived there most of my life besides a brief stint at Taylor college in the Chicago suburbs. My parents are still together (shocking I know) and I have a brother in high school who only seems to talk in one word sentences. I think my childhood was pretty normal, I wasn’t like a cheerleader or an honor student or anything, but I went to school football games, graduated, went to college, joined some student organizations and all that jazz.

2. I run a feature on my blog called Tattoo Tuesday and I would love for you to answer my 3 Tattoo Questions: 

  • How old were you when you got your first tattoo?  Eighteen
  • Tell me your tattoo story? It was right after I decided to transfer out of Taylor and I wanted something uplifting. I didn’t want a Phoenix, but something with the same “rise from the ashes” message. I found out about the princess flower that grows in volcanic soil and to have something so beautiful come from such destruction was very uplifting.
  • Tattoos on significant others, like or dislike and why? I never mind a bad boy with some tattoos, but I’m really starting to prefer the more clean cut and polished guys, no tats, no piercings, and maybe they wear dress shirts all the time…maybe.

3. You recently transferred to Central, why did you leave your old school and why Central?
(This is a big spoiler so I’m going to dance around it). I had many reasons for leaving Taylor. Sometimes it’s just nice to be closer to my family and sometimes we all just need to escape. My family is less than an hour from Central and I know if I need them, they’ll be there.

4. What is your major? 
Political Science and Women’s Studies.

5. You are partnered with Trey Chapman in debate class, what’s it like working so close with the Governor’s son? 
Ugh, Trey Chapman is a pain in my ass. Seriously. Did you know when I met the guy he immediately asked if I wanted literature on his dad’s campaign? *Sigh* On the other hand, the guy knows his stuff. He isn’t one of those headline readers, but really knows what he is talking about and I cannot lie; there is something very attractive about a guy that knows what he wants and goes for it.

6. Any chemistry there? Has he seen your tattoos? 
He likes to comment on my eyebrow piercing every chance he gets. As far as chemistry, well I’ll openly admit that a guy has a way of getting under my skin in a good and bad way.

7. If you don’t mind me getting personal, what do you look for in a man? 
And the tattoo question wasn’t personal? I kid, I kid. Um, I like someone that likes me for me. A guy that doesn’t expect me to be something that I’m not or fit into a perfect box. It doesn’t hurt for him to have a brain, either. I like actually having a conversation with someone. And I like brunettes with green eyes…and dimples *daydreams* WHAT? Okay sorry to drift off there. Thanks for having me and I hope I answered all of your questions!

Blurb:  Fiercely liberal Monica Remy prefers to blend in. Despite her tattoos, piercings, and outspoken personality, she transferred to Central to escape—before she finds out that her next door neighbor is the uber conservative governor’s son, Trey Chapman.
No matter how hard she tries to avoid Trey, he still finds a way to get under her skin. Monica can’t stand his crisp white shirts or his staunch views on women. But she can’t help counting every freckle on his face and wondering what it would feel like to have him stop talking politics and kiss her.
A class debate project forces the unlikely pair to work together, and the political lines are blurred in late-night make out sessions. But despite their fiery chemistry, Trey’s politics threatens to smother their relationship for good.
