September, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about Drum.

Drum by September North

Genre Young Adult Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): NC 17

Isn’t the musician supposed to be the aggressive one? Not in this relationship. I wanted him. He wanted me. I never thought I would be the one leading the charge, but if I waited for Drum to try to hit a home run, I’d be graduating college not high school.
In one day, I changed the course of my senior year, my whole life. The more time I spent with him, the more I liked him.
He’s new. He’s different. His dad is a Marine. He’s a drummer. Yes, he is also in the marching band. No, I didn’t care, and neither did my competition. It wasn’t like I was the only one who noticed him, and jealousy was a real situation I had to learn to deal with.
