Band Geek Thursday: Playlists for EFFORTLESS WITH YOU by author Lizzy Charles!

Happy Band Geek Thursday, Misfiteers! Today we've got special guest Lizzy Charles, author of EFFORTLESS WITH YOU, which just released from Swoon a few short weeks ago and has been dominating Amazon Kindle sales ever since! Lizzy's actually provided us with not one but two playlists, one for main character Lucy and one for love interest Justin, so get to know them both, and check out EFFORTLESS WITH YOU, available at Amazon and B&N!


School is out and Lucy is ready for the perfect summer: lazy days at the pool, invitations to the most exclusive parties, and romantic dates with her hot new boyfriend. That is, until she lands in trouble one too many times and her parents issue the ultimate punishment: a summer job. Suddenly, the summer can't end fast enough.

To make matters worse, the job is painting houses with Justin, the most popular, egotistical guy in school. Spending all summer with Justin might be other girls' dreams, but definitely not Lucy's. After all, Justin is cocky, annoying, and a jerk. So what if he's the most beautiful jerk Lucy's ever seen? Or that his grin makes her forget she’s mad at the world? Or that maybe, just maybe, there's more to Justin than Lucy realizes. Only one thing is certain: it won’t be the summer she wanted, but it might be exactly the one she needs.

When Lizzy Charles isn’t scrambling to raise her two spunky toddlers or caring for premature and sick babies as a neonatal intensive care nurse, she’s in a quiet corner writing or snuggled up with a novel and a few squares of dark chocolate. Black tea keeps her constant and she loves guacamole. She married her high school sweet heart, a heart-melting musician, so it’s no surprise she’s fallen in love with writing contemporary YA romance novels. You can find her on Twitter, Facebook, and on her blog,

Oh! I know half the songs on Lucy's playlist. With that added to the synopsis I feel like I know Lucy a little more. Thanks for sharing!
