Jack is a wonderful character, he will probably become a favorite of yours. He is funny, silly and a smart ass at times, but you just can't help but love him! He is also very loyal to Stevie and is there for her when ever she needs someone to hold her hand, or point out when she needs to rethink situations, or even a shoulder to cry on, I mean, isn't that what best friends are for?
I hope you like the start of my book and look forward to any comments you may have!
Stevie threw her hands against the dashboard to keep from slamming forward as the mustang roared into the driveway, sliding sideways on the gravel and spitting rock behind them. She turned to Jack, but he refused to look at her, choosing instead to stare out the windshield.
“Watch out for my mom’s flowers.” Stevie cried. “And the new tree she just planted.”
Despite her efforts and the seatbelt, she was flung forward when the car came to a skidding halt.
“Jack, are you frickin’ crazy?” Stevie said, cautiously releasing her death grip on the dashboard. “My mom is going to kill you for the way you drove in here, stirring up the gravel and throwing it into the flower bed.”
“Naa…it’s just some little rocks, it’ll be fine,” Jack looked at her, the sides of his lips forming a smile. “Besides, she’ll still love me.”
“Yeah? Well, I don’t know if I will.” She rolled her eyes. “So enlighten me. How is it that a new car is all it took to break your word to your parents.”
“Jeez, Stevie—in total control. I was just having a little fun.”
Stevie wanted to throw the death of Jack’s sister in his face, but even after ten years, she knew better. The loss of Jennifer, his only sister, still pained him. But still, the death should be a reminder not to take stupid risks.
Well, there it is, and don't forget to comment, I would love to hear from you! Have a wonderful day!
Love ya, Lisa
