Lottie Loves
by Samie Sands

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

“Will you marry me?”

Four words I’ve waited my whole life to hear. Four words I was sure would change my life forever…and they did. Just not in the way I expected.

Finding out my extremely gorgeous rock star boyfriend was about to propose had the complete opposite effect I thought it would. Rather than catapult me into a future I’ve always wanted, it plunged me back to a past I tried to forget.

Now I can’t get him out of my head. I can’t help but wonder what could have been, how our lives would have ended up if he didn’t leave me behind, a shattered mess.

All these memories are dangerous. They’re bringing my past back to ruin my future. And worst of all, they’re taking me right back to him, my childhood sweetheart, my first love…my biggest regret.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT THREE:

“What am I going to do, Lotts?” he asked me, giving me a look of sheer helplessness. “How am I going to come back from this?”

“Well, I’ll help you,” I gasped at him seriously, growing increasingly excited about the prospect of spending even more time with Joe. Things were much better anyway, and I wanted to take that one step further. I figured if I could start tutoring Joe, I could drag him away from the idiotic ‘popular crowd,’ and we could go back to being the us we were when we were younger, the us I loved so much. “I’ll go over everything with you, I have extensive notes from all the classes, maybe I could get you back up to where you should be…”

I trailed off because he was giving me a strange look, one that had my heart thundering loudly in my chest. As his eyes shone with an emotion I didn’t quite recognise, I gulped down the massive ball of emotion that had lodged itself firmly in my throat. My ears buzzed, and my eyes swam. I had the intense sense that something monumental was about to happen…I just wasn’t quite sure what it was. 

“You’re always there for me,” he murmured thoughtfully, his gaze falling to my lips. My blood boiled inside of me as I shifted uncomfortably where I sat. I felt scrutinised, weird, and I didn’t know what the hell to do. “No matter what, you’re always there.”

Then before I could even think, before I could grasp what the hell was happening, his lips had smashed against mine, and his hands were tangling themselves up in my hair. My instinctive reaction was to pull back, to find out what the hell was going on with Joe, but then the realisation screamed in my brain that Joe was kissing me, and that it might be the only shot I ever got. 

My heart raced so quickly I feared it might burst from my chest, a fiery spark lit within me, and although it wasn’t quite what I’d been picturing in my mind—it was far too desperate and needy for that—I felt alive, tingly, and I knew this was proof that we were meant to be. I knew we’d finally overstepped that mark, we’d crossed the line and there would be no coming back from that, but I was excited. I felt this was how things had meant to be all along.

As we finally pulled apart, and we gazed into one another’s eyes, I thought I could see some shock there, almost as if he hadn’t quite expected to do that. I didn’t mind that though, I was certain I looked the same. In that way, it was really the perfect moment—in my mind, at least. It was spontaneous, unexpected, and incredibly excited.

“I…” I started to speak, to ask him the millions of questions floating through my mind, but before I could get anything out, we heard Joe’s mum calling him home. Usually this wouldn’t mean too much, we would hang out for a little while longer, but this time he jumped up rapidly with a regretful look in his eyes, and he raced away.

It’s just because he needs to think things through, I tried to reassure myself, as I trudged slowly and sadly to my own home. He just needs to sort out his own feelings. 

Out of an intense desire to recall this situation fully, now that I’d started thinking about it, and wanting to be armed with as much knowledge as possible, I raced back to my diary, and I flicked through the pages until I found the relevant one.

26th May 2007

I just kissed Joe.

I don’t even know how to describe it, it was utterly the best moment of my life. All of my dreams couldn’t even begin to imagine how good it was going to be. I can’t even believe that I’m writing this…after all the heartache, all the wondering, it’s finally happened and now we can actually be together. 

This is the best thing ever!

GUEST POST:

Five Reasons You Should Read My Book

1.   Lottie
Lottie has the perfect life – great friends, a job she likes, and she’s just found out that her gorgeous rockstar boyfriend wants to marry he – yet she can’t help looking backwards at what might have been…

2.   Danny
He might be a rockstar, but he’s sweet, kind, and adores Lottie. She’s never thought of him as a bad boy until rumors start circling about him, leaving her questioning everything.

3.   Joe
Joe was Lottie’s first love, the one she always thought that she was going to marry...until life got in the way. After they went their separate ways Lottie decided not to follow his life so she could heal her heart…but now she needs to know.

4.   The Secret
Lottie Loves was originally one of my Wattpad stories and as the truth was revealed about why things fell apart for Lottie and Joe, I got many messages from stunned people. I guess it isn’t what you expect.

5.   The Choice
What would you do if you were in Lottie’s position? Once you read it, let me know!

    1. Sadly, I was still very sick and contagious so I was at home... Pretty much slept most of the day and rested... It's crazy how holidays mean so much when you're younger... But as you get older, it just becomes another day... Until I guess you have kids and then you make it a big deal for them... Although, if I wasn't sick, I definitely would have at least gone out with friends if I didn't have a date... Oh well, there's always next year lol... How was your Valentine's?

Thinking I'm about to start House of Cards so I'll be ready for the final season six when it drops soon hopefully... What have you bingewatched lately?

    1. Hey Cindy! That's really strange, I'm not sure what's going on... Do you know what days your comments are missing from? After a post is over 30 days old I have to manually approve the comments, but I always approve them and try to check them at least every other day... But I have been sick with pneumonia so might not have on top of it as usual these past couple weeks... However, I'm not showing any pending comments from you... But there might be another way to check if you know the dates I should be checking for...? I love having you here and enjoy reading your comments :)
