A novella prequel to the Heavy Influence Trilogy about young, 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 Thoughts on this badass novella:
Okay. So, we have the perfect mix here. Music, high school, California, hot guys -- (bad boys?) hot girls. (good girls?) What else could we ask for?
In this brilliant novella we get a taste of teens loving music; maybe even getting the big break in the music industry that they have been waiting for. And all the while could there be romance blooming? Right next door. Alyssa is such a young girl for Jake's older eyes. Yet that isn't stopping his mind from thinking about her or his eyes from wanting to constantly look at her. Is this right? Both Jake and Alyssa ask themselves this question. Although, now that the seed has been planted, it certainly can't be dug up and tossed aside.
Frohoff sets this trilogy up just right with this groovy novella. It's edgy enough for teens to love, mix in music and a possible love triangle in the California heat and who wouldn't want to check it out. On the plus side Frohoff is putting together a soundtrack that goes with each book in the series. Huzzah!
In my opinion this trilogy is going to be a fun ride with a sassy set of alternative punk tunes to go along with it. I can't wait for the next trip in Jake and Alyssa's adventure.
