Lottie Loves
by Samie Sands


GENRE:   Contemporary Romance



“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.



I yanked my phone angrily out of my pocket, not at all in the mood to talk to anyone, least of all the name that I saw plastered across the screen.


I rolled my eyes, almost stuffing the phone back in my pocket, really not wanting to speak to him. My mum had put me in the worst mood, and for the first time ever I wasn’t excited to talk to the man I loved.

Just as my hand slid into my jeans, my heart pounded uncomfortably against my chest, and I rapidly changed my mind. I couldn’t ignore Danny, not when he’d done nothing wrong. Just because I was all shook up and pissed off, it wasn’t his fault. Plus I had no idea when he would call again, so I shouldn’t miss this opportunity.

“Hi…” I started, but Danny jumped in almost instantly, not letting me get a word in edgeways.

“Lottie? Are you okay? It isn’t true, I promise you. I didn’t…it isn’t what it looks like…I…” He sounded panicked and stressed, which meant he wasn’t making any sense, causing everything within me to halt in shock. Danny was a pretty laid back person when it came to most things, so to hear him like that meant that something really bad had happened. I just couldn’t work out what it was…

“Woah, slow down.” I tried to sound calm, but even I could hear the hollow twinge to my tone. “What the hell are you going on about?” I stood outside the front door to my home, unable to even think about hunting through my bag for the key when something so potentially life changing was about to happen.

“You mean you haven’t seen it yet?” He gasped weakly, his words cracking painfully with emotion. I shook my head silently, waiting for him to continue. “I…I thought you hated me already. I thought you knew.” He panted a few times, and I noticed my breaths becoming as ragged as his, as if my body was trying to prepare me for what was to come next. “The newspapers…they’re saying some things. Some awful things…but they aren’t true, I promise you.”

“What do you mean?” I asked, everything swirling around inside of me until I almost felt sick with it all. My brain wasn’t quite processing any of Danny’s words, but my body had already come to its own, very unwelcome, conclusion. “What the fuck are you saying, Danny?”

“At the industry party last night…there was this girl…” 



Why should anyone read your book?

Lottie Loves is all about looking back at the past through rose-tinted glasses, almost to the expense of losing what we have now. There’s something very romantic about the first person we fell for, and I think Lottie’s journey might be one that we can all relate to in some way. It’s easy to look back when the present isn’t perfect!

How did you come up with the title of your book or series?

The main character is nicknames Lottie and the plot is all about the people she has loved in her life, so the title came naturally from that. Joe is her first love, the boy she always thought she would marry but unexpected life events got in the way of that…and Danny is the man that she’s in love with now. That is until the rumors of his rock n roll lifestyle become too much for her to bear. 

Who is your favorite character from your book and why?

Lottie is my favorite character, which is probably because the book is solely from her point of view so I got much deeper into her head than any of the other characters. She is the main focus and so is her journey into working out where her life is verses where it should be. When she gets some news that shocks her happy life to the core, she begins to question everything…and that’s something I, and I’m sure others, have been through too. 

Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series.

I first published Lottie Loves on my Wattpad account, before it was published, so I got real time feedback with each chapter I posted. There’s a bit of an unexpected twist in the plot, and I loved reading how shocked people were, and how they expected something completely different to happen as they read it.

Where did your love of reading/storytelling/writing/etc. come from?

The first book I wrote was in a completely different genre. Lockdown is a horror and zombie book which I started writing more as something for myself rather than with the thought it would get published, but I enjoyed it so much that I decided to pursue it. Luckily it worked out!

What's the strangest thing you have ever had to research online for a book?

For Forgotten, the second book in my zombie series, I had to do a lot of scientific research into the brain which was…interesting! I learned a lot about biology that I definitely didn’t get from school and that I’m not sure I wanted to know. It made writing the complexities of the zombie turning experience that much more fun though. 

How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

My website is, but you can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, and use Instagram a lot too.

What can we expect from you in the future? What are you working on now?

I am currently publishing my newest romance story on Wattpad as well, because I really enjoy the instant feedback. The details for this story are below and it can be read for free here:

Scott and Carlie, Carlie and Scott...

From the moment these two lay eyes on each other it seems inevitable that they'll end up together. Sure, they're young so mistakes are made along the way, but the connection they share is like nothing either of them has ever experienced before.

That is...until fate gets in the way.

A catastrophic event leaves Carlie questioning everything. Every single decision that she's ever made comes under scrutiny, including those that involve Scott.

There's something she needs to say, but is she brave enough or will Carlie always be...Tongue Tied?
