The Latest from J.C....

Off Beat: Forgotten Flounders Book 1



It’s been nine years since Calum Jacobs, the frontman of The Forgotten Flounders, has returned to his sleepy east coast hometown.


His decision to bail on his post-graduation plans to tour the world with his punk-rock band infuriated his father. 


He’s also been too afraid to face Harper Morrison; the girl he left behind. They had plans to go to college together, but the moment he boarded that plane, choosing a different life for himself, Harper had to make her own path…and it didn’t include chasing down a man who’d left her. 


When Cal is called back to attend his grandfather’s funeral, he has no idea the shocking secrets that await him…

“J.C. Hannigan’s Off Beat is a touching, honest, and emotional second chance romance.


Harper and Calum find each other almost a decade after Cal left home to follow his dream, and their reunion is rife with family conflict, rekindled chemistry, and shocking surprises!


If you enjoy a well-written story featuring compelling characters and a vibrant plot, I urge you to read Off Beat!”
