Hi! I’m Amber Garza, author of romantic fiction. I write mostly young adult contemporary novels, but I also have a few adult suspense/thrillers out as well. They all have romance as their central theme though. What can I say? I’m a romantic at heart. I love the rush of that first glance, that first touch, that first kiss. And the only thing better than reading about it is writing about it.
I’m Not in the Band is all about those firsts. And I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
“It’s not that big of a deal. Really.”
“Oh, I think it’s a really big deal.” He moves closer, his hand curving around my waist, his body sliding against mine.
“You do?” I get the feeling we’re not talking about the same thing.
“Our first date. Our first dance.” His lips hover mine. “Our first kiss. To me that’s a very big deal.”
Ah, yes. I prefer this topic of conversation. My lips burn with longing. Closing my eyes, I wait for his mouth to cover mine.
“Ross Devlin and Kassidy Milton are now friends! What?” Tiffany’s shrill voice rings out in the hallway. My chest tightens as Archer draws back. Tiffany stares down at the phone in her hand, her mouth gaping open. Then she stomps away from us angrily.
Archer’s brows are furrowed. “What was that about?”
My stomach sinks. He didn’t know. And now I have to be the one to tell him. “Um...your brother and I sorta became Facebook friends. But like I said, it’s not a big deal.”
“That’s what you were talking about?” His jaw tightens. “That’s why everyone keeps staring at us? I assumed it was because of the pictures I posted of our date.”
“That would make a lot more sense,” I mutter under my breath.
“Not really.” He frowns. “A date with me isn’t really news. Friending a celebrity is.” “But isn’t half the school friends with him?”
“Yeah, but they knew him before he was famous.” He runs a hand through his hair. “And he’s selective with who he’ll friend on social media.”
