“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…”

How to Date a Rockstar
by Samie Sands
Dating a rockstar is amazing, full of glamour, glitz, shows, money, and fun. There can’t possibly be any downsides to it, can there? I mean, aside from all the fans who throw themselves at your man, of course! Here are 5 tips to make sure your rockstar romance goes the distance:
1. Communication isn’t always the best…
As Lottie learns in Lottie Loves, Danny can’t always speak to her when he wants to, even when he really should! Things are bad and she really needs to find out what’s going on from him, but his commitments to the band mean he can’t do what he wants.
2. Be yourself!
You’ll need to have your own life so you aren’t to worried about what he’s doing all the time. Have your own career, hobby, and circle of friends to help you when times get tough.
3. Don’t always listen to rumors.
Lottie freaks out when rumors start circulating about her man, which sends her back down memory lane, all the way to her first love. If he’s famous, people will try to say certain things about him. Be secure enough in your relationship to trust him most of all.
4. Most of your romance will happen in private.
You can’t have many drinks in bars or secret dinners if his fans are always watching. Most of your time will be spent Netflix and chilling, but that way you get to keep him all to yourself for just a few hours.
5. Look forward to your melting eye-contact moments.
Lottie and Danny meet in a wonderful moment of eye-contact when he’s up on stage playing a gig. Those magical sorts of moments will make all the hard things worthwhile!
