Tomboy Cam Swayne is determined that football hero Jake Phillips keep his eyes firmly on her. After all, she’s been his since before she was born.
Cam has grown up literally next to Jake. They live next door and share a treehouse. They’ve played together on the street and at the lake since she could walk. Plus, they’ve saved each other in some pretty miraculous ways that even their parents find hard to believe. So, it’s only natural that when hormones kick in, Cam feels like Jake belongs only to her. And heaven help anyone that stands in Cam’s way.
Jake doesn’t admit it to anyone, but he’s only himself when the girl next door is at his side. Even though he’s three years older than her and there’s a whole string of reasons for them not to be together, he can’t seem to walk away from the one girl who makes him feel whole.
What does get in their way? Different schools and different sports as they grow into their teen years. His long line of “gaggling geese” that follow him like he’s a boyband superstar. And the illness Jake hides from everyone until his devotion to Cam makes it an impossibility. Will Cam and Jake ever get their happily ever after?
Inspired by Taylor Swift songs, this is a story of aching love and loss and learning to live through life in all its pain and glory.
About My Life as a Pop Album
Good Girl Mia feels guilty for her brother's death. It was her kidney that killed him after all...
Mia Phillips is a Good Girl. You know, one of the ones that help everyone else and make sure the rules are followed. But, she’s also got a tiny body, too much curve, and her brother Jake’s mosaic eyes which often get her the wrong kind of attention. On the outside, she’s got it all together. She’s graduated college and is set to take over running the family car dealership. She’s good at it. She likes it. But, on the inside she’s a mess, recovering from a broken heart and failing to escape years of guilt. She’s never been on any real adventures. Instead, she reads about them in books by the hundreds and avoids anything where dirt could be a side effect. She’s also made promises to her parents, her dead brother, and herself that she’s determined not to break including to never make her mama cry again.
Derek Waters is a gritty, soul singing musician with dark hair, tattoos, and book worthy abs. He and his band have just signed on with a major record label and are touring the country. He’s glad to be far from L.A. and his alcoholic father. He has his own set of baggage that he hides behind a huge smile and a famous Johnny Cash quote. He definitely isn’t looking for any kind of female distraction because after growing up in the PlayBabe Mansion, he has a repulsion to having sex just for sex.
When Derek walks into Mia’s dealership, her shattered soul seems to call to all of his broken pieces, and they find themselves throwing their best laid plans aside to tour together for three weeks. But what will happen to Good Girl Mia and Derek Waters when the tour is all done?
