Love Always, Sneak Peek, Part 1

Updated: Oct 25, 2020

Here is the first sneak peek of the sequel to Carried Away. SPOILER ALERT: IF YOU HAVEN'T READ CARRIED AWAY YET... STOP READING THIS NOW ;-)

This will be the very beginning of the sequel. A longer portion of the sneak peek is coming soon.

I read somewhere that there are four loves you experience in your lifetime. The article I read explained each one, and while it might not be true for everyone, it felt especially true for me.

Alex. The Puppy Love. This love is the one that first stirs your emotions. The “Will you be my girlfriend? Check yes or no,” kind of love. The one you meet in elementary school. The one you know everything about and you’ve loved them through all the awkward stages of adolescence. This is the first of the FIRSTS. Your first hug, first phone call, first kiss. The one whose name you write all over your notebooks. But then you grow up and the magic innocence of it all is over. You both grow and change and move on. You watch them fall in love with someone else, and you fall in love with someone else, but you have a beautiful memory that you’ll have for a lifetime.

Kyle. The Crazy Love. This love will come into your life like a storm that you never expected. Everything will be exciting and new and it doesn’t matter that he’s not someone you thought you’d want to be with. But the excitement of it all will wear off, he will constantly disappoint you, but you’ll keep holding on because you are loyal and faithful and desperate to make it work. He will treat you in ways no one who says they “love” you should, and you will come to regret being with him. Your break up will be ugly and toxic, leaving you questioning everything you thought you knew about yourself. You’ll question your self-worth and hate yourself for falling for his charm. You’ll feel broken and the thought of letting someone in to “love” you again will seem unimaginable. But you will recover and you will know what you deserve, and one day, someone will come along and teach you how you should be loved.

Leo. The Brave Love. You’ll be brave and learn to trust again through this love. He will love you unconditionally and together you will discover the world. He will give you his all, he’ll hold your hand as you walk down the street, he’ll treat you like the most important thing in his life, and he'll be yours. You’ll love each other with complete sincerity, and you’ll believe there is no future where the two of you aren’t together. Your love story will be one for the ages. But just like the puppy love, you will grow and change, and eventually, he’ll slip away from you. He’ll be the one that got away. But because of this love, you will not be afraid to open your heart again. This is the love that teaches you what you deserve, and you will never settle for anything less.

Ethan. The ONE. Well, he might be the one. I guess we’ll see.

I actually did read an article about this and am linking it on here.

Writer's Block

I haven't written in a week. I reached my next goal of 30,000 words, and I haven't looked at it since. Writer's block is REAL and it is stressful! It's easy to write about the big events in a story

Personal Growth

Last night I overcame a huge fear by going LIVE on Facebook and Instagram to discuss my book. I had no idea what to expect and had never done a LIVE event before. Lately, though, I've had to attempt
