Lost In You – Chapter Two

Lost In You - Chapter 2
Chapter 2 Preview: As the wedding continues, Cooper has fun dancing with boy band member JT, but her eyes can’t help but stay on his band mate, Ryan.

“Here you go, darlin’.”

 

Ryan handed Cooper her drink.

 

“Thanks Tom,” she rolled her eyes. “I was a little curious as to why they were calling you Rizz,” she laughed. “It suits a Ryan more than a Tom.”

 

Ryan smiled as Matt stepped up to them.

 

“You wanna dance?” Matt asked.
“Sure,” Cooper said taking his hand.

 

JT eyed Matt as he led Cooper into a slow dance.… Read more

Dream Catchers – Chapter Two: Penniless in Pinkston

Dream Catchers - Chapter Two - Sandy Lo
Chapter 2 – Penniless in Pinkston Preview: Haley meets a gorgeous, but crass stranger on the bus trip home.

I walked through the rotating glass door with my hand on my purse, and sighed at the overcrowded station crawling with community college kids. All of the kids that went to my school had cars, or their parents picked them up.  As a sophomore, students weren’t allowed to have a car on campus.  My parents were usually too busy to come get me, but always offered for Christian Eriksson to drive me home.

 

Oh God, just the thought of Christian driving up to my school with his slicked back hair and his collared shirt, which he had to fasten every last button on, disturbed me.… Read more

The Watch Dog – Prologue

Prologue Preview: Garrett is wakened by barking and brings back haunting memories.

Dedication: For Brownie
Thank you for watching over me and scaring the ghosts away. You’ll always be in my heart.

 

The barking was echoing through my skull; a low growl rang through my ears along with the bellowing howls.  I sprang up in the bed forgetting where I was.  My eyes adjusted to the moonlight from the window.  I ignored the sleeping girl next to me and slithered out of the bed.

 

I searched my clothes out on the hardwood floor and dressed quickly.  Slowly and quietly I walked to the window and looked down the peaceful block tucked away in the Hamptons. Read more

Lost In You – Chapter Three

Lost In You - Chapter 3
Chapter 3 Preview: Cooper and Ryan get to know each other after the wedding during a trip to the emergency room.

 

Just as Ryan and Cooper stepped outside the reception hall, rain poured down.  Luckily, they were covered by the awning attached to the building.  A few other wedding guests stood alongside Ryan and Cooper awaiting their cars from the valet.

 

“Just great,” Cooper sighed, handing the man her parking voucher.

 

She wrapped her arms around herself as they watched the downpour.  The raindrops hit the green canvas of the awning; the sound like tiny feet tip-toeing above their heads.… Read more

Dream Catchers – Chapter Three: Stranded With The Stranger

Dream Catchers - Chapter Three - Sandy Lo
Chapter 3 – Stranded with the Stranger Preview: With no money, phone, and stranded with the gorgeous, but annoying stranger, Haley tries to figure out how to get home.

The sun was bright as a fluorescent lemon as it blazed down, almost blinding me.  I tapped my foot trying to think of what to do.  Jordan sat down on the curb, and strummed his guitar absently.  He didn’t seem to be worried, but I was terrified.  I’m just a girl, who’s never really been on her own.  College was supposed to be a form of “cutting the cord” from my parents, but they paid for everything and called to check in neurotically. … Read more

The Watch Dog – Chapter One

The Watch Dog - Chapter One - Sandy Lo
Chapter One Preview: Garrett is forced to go back to his hometown in Tennessee where he isn’t liked very much.

 

 

A cigarette sat in a filthy ashtray in the tiny kitchen.  Garrett Baker hung up the telephone with a sigh.  His mother didn’t sound as pleasant as he had hoped.  They hadn’t spoken much in the past couple of years, and he knew she was ashamed of him.

 

At thirty, Garrett wondered how he managed to mess his life up this severely.  He stared down at the one-way ticket to Nashville, Tennessee that his younger brother had sent him.… Read more

Lost In You – Chapter Four

Lost In You - Chapter 5
Chapter 4 Preview: The morning after the wedding, Cooper finds out a secret about Ryan that changes her mind about him.

The morning after the wedding, Dave knocked on Cooper’s door repeatedly. It was just past ten and he was curious to hear about Cooper’s trip to the hospital.

 

“Come in,” she grumbled, tossing her head back and forth against her pillow.

 

Dave opened the door and Cooper looked up at him pouting.

 

“How are you feeling, cuz?”
“I don’t know what hurts more: my ankle or my head,” she groaned as she sat up slowly.
“Sorry you had a bad night,” he said, sitting on her bed.… Read more

Dream Catchers – Chapter Four: New York, New York

Chapter 4 – New York, New York Preview: Haley and Jordan make it to NYC and argue over which hotel to stay in.

 

The bright lights of New York City distracted me from the fact that it was night time in a dangerous, unknown place where I was stuck with a complete male stranger.  There were times throughout the ride from Pinkston to New York where I was in utter bewilderment of why I had decided to go through with it all.  There were also moments of absolute horror where I imagined being robbed and stranded without a dime or a telephone.… Read more

The Watch Dog – Chapter Two

Chapter Two Preview: Garrett arrives back home in Cayuga, TN to an icy welcome from his mother and brother.

 

 

LaGuardia Airport was swarmed with holiday travelers at six-am.  Impatient New Yorkers were rushing out of taxis to make their flights in time.  Garrett was one of them—he had woken up late and had twenty minutes to check-in and get through security.  He had cursed his younger brother, Kevin—who booked the flight—the entire shuttle ride to the airport.

 

Luckily for Garrett, it seemed the closer to departure time you arrived for your flight, the quicker the airline rushed you through check-in. … Read more

Lost In You – Chapter Five

Lost In You - Chapter 5
Chapter 5 Preview: Cooper and bad boy JT go on their first date.

 

The sun was starting to set as the waiter walked over with a plate of coconut shrimp with chicken, and sat it down in front of Cooper.  Another waiter followed behind him and put a plate of steak with a side of fettuccine in front of JT.  The outdoor restaurant was both romantic and relaxing.  A breeze swept across from the ocean making the seasoning and flavor from their food hit their senses.  Cooper was starved and immediately dug into her dish.

 

With all the excitement over Ryan that morning, she hadn’t really eaten much at breakfast. … Read more
