Release Date: November 3rd 2015

Summary from Goodreads:

Allie Sanders thinks life in a small town can’t get any more dull and boring. She plans to escape after graduation. After a bad break-up, she wants to sail through junior year without distraction. Then the mysterious loner sits down in front of her in AP English. He’s the guy she noticed last year desperately trying to stay invisible. She wants to know his secrets. Suddenly her much older military brother, Doug, makes a rare appearance. He takes a special interest in her life. Suspicious of his motives Allie holds back, never really trusting him. Doug wants what she wants—the boy she has come to love. No way would she let that happen. She’d go against family and friends to protect him—and his secrets—even if it ends up breaking her heart.

Playlists and Writing Ideas

I can’t listen to music when I write. Some authors list song after song that match scenes in their story. If I had music playing as I wrote, I’d start listening to the words in the song instead of concentrating on writing mine.
That’s not to say I don’t have songs that go with my story. I just can’t listen to them when I write. To get ideas, to help writer’s block, I turn to music. It may be in the car, on headphones on the treadmill or just playing it when I’m alone in the house.
When I wrote 29 I listened to One Republic. Many of their songs are perfect for this story and beyond. If I had to single out one song for this book, it would Katy Perry’s The One That Got Away.
Allie and Lucas have a complicated relationship, and she is the one who has to make the final choice of what will happen to them. Hopefully as one reads the book, they will hear songs in their head that fit the scene. That makes reading fun. Two people can view the story in totally different ways.
If you choose to read the book, and I thank you in advance, I’d love to hear you thoughts. Songs? What comes to mind when you read 29.

Our hands touched briefly and a tingle traveled up my arm and back down my spine. He quickly pulled away, handed me the folder and continued to pick up the rest of the mess. I didn’t know if I should say sorry or thank you because I couldn’t take my eyes off his gorgeous face.
As he placed the pile on my desk he looked directly at me, straight through to my soul. “You’re welcome.” His dark hair hung over his eyes and those chocolate orbs burned right through me. A slight smile crossed his face. Then it was over, and he turned back in his seat, pouring over that important book.
I brought my hand to my chest, the one he touched. It still tingled. Funny, I never felt that way with Josh. I never experienced anything when we held hands. Josh may have been a teenage crush but this felt like something more—more like danger and romance could be right around the corner.
I blinked and noticed my schedule still lay on the floor close to Heathcliff’s desk. I debated if I needed it, but didn’t want it in someone else’s hands. I leaned to the side and tried to extend my leg out into the aisle to pull the paper toward me. The schedule lay just beyond my reach. I slipped from my seat into a squatting position, praying no one watched. How embarrassing if anyone saw me. Super powers would be really great right now. Wishing for invisibility, I wiggled a few inches forward and picked up the paper.
As I scooted forward, I couldn’t help notice Loner’s sandals. I had the sudden urge to tell him he had good fashion sense. I caught my breath as I spotted something on the arch of his right foot. I couldn’t make out the whole thing. Part of the foot was covered by the sandal strap. Pen marks? Letters? A tattoo? My blood ran cold. I began to feel dizzy and steadied myself on my desk. I saw something I wished I hadn’t. Loner had a tattoo on the arch of his foot. I couldn’t make out the whole thing but what I saw was enough to send a chill down my spine—I-X.
