I’m Karen, a Midwestern girl transplanted in the South, raised on ’80s music, Judy Blume, and the films of John Hughes. An early preoccupation with Rock ‘n’ Roll led me to spend my twenties working my way from intern to executive in the music industry. Now I’m a married mom of two, and instead of staying up late in rock clubs, I get up before dawn and write sexy contemporary romance starring hot heroes, served fresh.

Today’s post is from author Jennifer Blackwood, who’d love to lure you in with vivid imagery of high school tennis and Eminem.
Jennifer Blackwood, Class of ’05
Band and/or song that reminds you the most of high school: Eminem reminds me the most of high school. During tennis team practices, we used to blare his music (I imagine how silly we probably looked as we rapped Just Lose It while practicing volleys). Another song that was integral to every high school dance was Hot in Herre by Nelly. It was the ultimate grinding song, and I distinctly remember being at an after-football dance in tenth grade dancing with my girlfriends, trying to make my ex jealous with my sweet dance moves. I look back and cringe, but then again, half my high school existence was cringe-worthy.
Favorite piece of music memorabilia (poster, t-shirt, etc.) in high school: Hmm I had A LOT of music memorabilia from middle school (Nsync posters, marionettes, magazines, etc…) but not a whole lot from high school. I’d have to say my favorite was probably my Usher poster. He was shirtless and it was glorious.
Band that you hated that everyone else at school seemed to love: I absolutely hated Jimmy Eat World. COULD. NOT. STAND. THEM. And everyone else in high school adored them. Whenever someone blasted it in the car, I just wanted to bang my head against the window. For real.
Best show or concert you saw in high school: I saw Coldplay in concert my senior year and it was at the Gorge Amphitheater. I went with my two best friends and an Abercrombie model I met at choir camp—I shit you not. It was the first time I’d gone to a concert without my parents (because they were overprotective and thought I would get into trouble) and I totally got into lots of trouble after the concert.
Best high school make-out song: Anything by either R. Kelly or Usher!

It’s Day Two of our slate of RNRHS posts celebrating the release of ’90s Playlist, a Romance Rewind Anthology! If you weren’t here yesterday, this collection includes six all-new novellas about sex, love, and being young in the ’90s, inspired by some of the most iconic songs from the decade. Did I mention it’s available for the amazeballs price of 99 cents? Do yourself a favor and pick up your copy now! Today’s post was dictated to Audra North, a past contributor to RNRHS, by Jill Kramer, the hero in her story Worthwhile.
Jill Kramer, Hickory High School, Class of ’93
Currently: I’m a junior at Penn State, just starting a semester abroad in Leeds, England
Band and/or song that reminds you the most of high school: U2! I listened to their Achtung Baby album pretty much nonstop during my senior year. I hope I get to see them in concert someday. They’re not touring now which totally sucks.
Favorite piece of music memorabilia (poster, t-shirt, etc.) in high school: Does a Wayne’s World poster count? I loved that movie and I thought the poster was hilarious, so I bought one and stuck it on the back of my bedroom door. It’s still there, I think, unless my parents took it down. (They better have saved it if they did.)
Band that you hated that everyone else at school seemed to love: Ace of Base. I mean, yeah, the songs are catchy, but they’re also bad. Like, I could probably hum one right now from memory but I’d end up hating myself for it.
Best show or concert you saw in high school: My parents didn’t let me go to concerts, but one night there was a ska band playing in this coffee shop I used to go to with my bff and they were pretty good, so…yeah, I know. That was a sad answer.
Best high school make-out song: Not like I want to be too obvious, here, but definitely Depeche Mode’s I Feel You.
