Lost In You Prologue - Sandy Lo
Prologue Preview: Impulsive and insecure Cooper Jackson accompanies her cousin to a wedding where she meets Sound Wave, a famous boy band.

The clouds coated the sky, camouflaging any hint of blue. The parking lot of the Catholic Church was packed so tightly; the white rental car circled the lot several times before finally settling in a spot on the street. Space was limited there as well. Vans and cars complete with camera crews and still photographers lined the block, waiting to catch any glimpse of the bride, but especially the groom, and possibly some of their well-known guests.
A young man of average height with dark hair rushed out of the car; an even younger woman followed him, both making their way toward the church.… Read more

Finding their way toward the altar, Dave and Cooper’s goal was to go in unnoticed. That goal was simply not accomplished as Cooper’s ankle twisted yet again.

Dream Catchers – Chapter One: Boston Blues

Dream Catchers - Chapter 1
Chapter 1 – Boston Blues Preview: Haley is not looking forward to going home for the summer.

 

A nightmare startled me awake. Groaning, I rolled over and glanced at the alarm clock.

4:07.

I groaned louder. Two hours? I thought the later I went to bed the more likely I was to fall soundly asleep. It had taken me a good twenty minutes to get comfortable before drifting off. And two hours later, here I was awake due to another nightmare.

 

For two weeks straight, I have averaged three hours of sleep a night. Either I just lie in bed, staring at the ceiling and thinking about the boring summer that was ahead of me, or I had odd dreams.… Read more
