Blog Tour Stop: Boy in a Band and Casanova Cowboy by Lisa Loomis
We’ve got to very interesting books to talk about today! Boy in a Band and Casanova Cowboy are not your typical romance novels.

Boy In a Band
MATURE CONTENT language, sex, drugs, rock and roll
Morgan Mallory meets beautiful, sexy, blond haired, blue eyed, Mathew O’Conner, a singer in a rock band, when she’s just a teen. Her instant physical attraction to him completely unnerves her. Their convoluted relationship transcends years, and even when she knows it would be best to stay away from him she can’t seem to stop herself. What is it about the bad boy she seems to love?
An edgy coming of age novel that is erotic, entertaining, and deeply moving. The characters will seize you and stay with you long after the read is finished. Not your predictable Cinderella story.
I loved this book and yes, it made me cry. A love story that starts early and lasts for decades, with so many ups and downs and mistakes being made that it makes you dizzy. Girl meets boy who’s a singer in a rock band. Their families are friends and they get together, not entirely because they choose to, and if nothing else, have an interesting friendship going on. I could perfectly relate to Morgan at times, I wanted her to choose differently at other times, and always rooted for her to get Matthew at some point. Matthew is the kind of bad boy that you can’t help like. You just want to shake him until he changes his ways and stops breaking Morgan’s heart.
I also discovered songs I fell in love with while reading it and I am so happy about that.

Morgan Mallory’s choices haven’t always been good ones. The day she steals her boyfriend’s car, in an act of revenge, turns out to be one of her worst. The event sets in motion her realization that something big has got to change. Despite her strength and sassiness she’s at a crossroad, struggling to understand herself, her relationships, and the meaning of love.
Ryan, a local mild mannered urban cowboy type, befriends her. As he deals with finding his own way in life an unconventional friendship develops. The twisting, turning path they go down together will forever change Morgan’s life.
This is not a western romance novel but a contemporary modern day romance which includes the untidiness of the human condition.
Standalone or sequel to “BOY IN A BAND”
I took almost a year off between these two books. I loved book one, but it broke my heart. I heard there was a book two, and went to read the reviews. And because I am an idiot and don’t pay attention, read some that pretty much gave the story away. I don’t normally mind much, but the reviews also told me that I was about to embark on another roller coaster ride that would toy with my heart, and I decided I just couldn’t do it.
But then, when I saw the tour, I relented. I just needed to know what happens, discover it for myself. I was a fool for thinking I would not connect with Ryan or the book because I had such a soft spot for Matt. Sure, I had emotions all over the place once more, and no, Morgan still does not make the best choices ever, but she’s growing up and getting there. Yet her love life cannot just be straight forward, it has to be complicated and angsty and, let’s face it, hot.
I did love both books and I regret not reading Casanova Cowboy earlier, but in a way I think the break was great. I had missed Morgan enough to forgive her for some of her choices. Yup, I still sort of prefer Matt, I can’t exactly explain why. It’s not exactly a preference as much as wanting him happy and safe.
A few words about the books
Take the warning seriously, this is mature content. There’s plenty of sex and these teens start early. If you want PC books, go elsewhere. If you want a real story, read this. You might not like how they act, I know I hated the drugs and alcohol, but those were the times and pretending it didn’t or doesn’t happen won’t help much.
