Flash by Barbara Morgenroth Blog Tour Excerpt

She ’d been pretending to be 18 for so long, it felt like the truth.
When the only way for 15 year old Kip Chanin to earn a living is as paparazzi, she can’t say no.
Kip’s first photo is of Alex Milne, the handsome and volatile young actor. That one photo changes both their lives.
Lesson One--You do what you have to in Hollywood to survive.
Flash. You’ve been pap snapped.

A moment later, the door opened again and a young woman with long brown hair exited with a tall young man.

She wanted this. She was posing for them while pretending to be annoyed she wasn’t given any privacy.

He took it in good stride.

I moved to the side of the group since they were all crushing at the girl.

A bouncer held out his arms to hold the photographers back. I couldn’t get a shot of her but there was something about him.

I started backing up which wasn’t hard since I was absolutely at the back of the pack.

While the paps rushed forward to follow her, the way cleared as a valet brought his car. He went around to the driver’s side door, slipped the guy a tip and started to get in.

I was behind the car at that point, right at the bumper.

He turned to look at me.

I had the camera raised waiting for the shot.

He opened his eyes so slightly that it was almost undetectable but shrieked confidence.

That was my shot.

Flash. The shutter released. I lowered my camera. “Thank you.”

He smiled, got in the BMW convertible and drove away.
