The Avid Reader: NBTM + Review + #Giveaway: Lottie Loves by Samie S...
Lottie Loves tells the story of a younman who has lived through heartbreak for the second time in her life when she gets this strange call from her boyfriend Danny who is on the road with his band, Jax. Danny tells her that he didn't do it, that none of it is true. Lottie has no clue as to what he is taking about but when she picks up the newspaper and sees Danny having a good time with some woman and then a picture of her leaving his room. Well as they say a picture doesn't lie, right?
Lottie is all heartbroken over Danny's news that she can't think straight. Her mind takes her back to the past to the only person she thought she would ever love and that they would be together forever. Her best friend since they were babies. He became her boyfriend during their teenage years and Lottie started seeing Joe in a different way. They were going to get married and spend the rest of their lives together but then tragedy strikes close to home and everything comes crashing down around them. The next she knows Joe breaks up with her and takes his passport and leaves town.
With seeing the pictures of Danny in the paper it brings up memories that Lottie thought she had put to rest a long time ago but maybe not. She starts to dwelling on it all and wondering about the "what ifs". She starts to wonder if she and Joe were meant to be like she always dreamed of. Was she making a mistake with Danny? What does she truly want? Maybe the only way to find out is to take a walk into the past to meet with Joe to see what happened and where to go with in future.
Lottie had to go through the things she did, experience every heartache, every joy, and meet the people she did in order to become the person she is now in order to love the people she loves now. If she hadn't experienced all those things then she would be a different person and her life would be so totally different than what it is. I am trying to say is that I tell my husband that we had to experience the things we did and meet the people we did to be the people we are today. If we hadn't experienced any of those things we would not be the people we are then we may not have liked each other and never have fallen in love.
Lottie Loves is not the first book by Samie Sands that I have read and I hope it won't be the last. I have honestly loved everything by her that I have read and Lottie Loves was no different. Lottie Loves is a very short book that will keep you flipping the pages wanting to know more about Lottie and Joe, Lottie and Danny.
I would recommend Lottie Loves to anyone who loves a good love story or heartbreak whichever way you want to look at it but fair warning you may need a box of tissue.
