My Life used to be great. I was happy, full of energy, and most importantly, loved.
From the day I was born, my family were everything to me: until tragedy struck.
Since losing them, I don’t love and I don’t trust; that way, I don’t get hurt.
My breath left my body on a soul-changing gasp when I encountered him, and it’s yet to stabilize.
In him, I have found the glue to mend my broken heart; he makes me feel
complete. There is no doubt I love him, trust him and know he won’t ever intentionally hurt me. Now, I could lose him. I could lose everything. And this time, I know I will struggle to recover.
Welcome to the battle for my life.
I work hard. It’s the only life I know. I care about my family, but no one else.
Certainly, there are women, but I don’t do love or commitment, and I definitely don’t believe in ‘the one’.
My world tilted on its axis when it happened, when this girl came crashing into my world, changing my life for the better and making me undoubtedly aware that my life would never be the same again. I've fallen in love and want commitment because I have met ‘the one’.
My life is now complete.
Unfortunately, with a tragic twist of fate, I could lose her—my
everything—but I will never give up, not without a fight.
Welcome to the fight of my life.
EXCERPT FROM THE VINE:
As we approached her flat, nerves started to kick in and I was getting really pissed off with myself with the whole sudden anxiety thing that kept happening when anything involved Lizzy. I don’t get nervous…ever! I never suffered with nerves in anything I did, and I certainly never had over a woman. As I was mentally scolding myself, Daniel had pulled up and opened my door. I got out of the car, walked up to the door and knocked confidently, regardless of the weird feelings I had going on in my gut. What is that, anyway? I questioned myself as the door swung open.
A very pretty, wild-looking blonde girl answered the door. I thought I slightly recognised her face from somewhere, but I didn’t actually know her.
“Good evening, is Lizzy here, please?” I asked politely.
The pretty girl in front of me frowned and was clearly trying to put on a ferocious act—which she was pretty good at—although she didn’t intimidate me in the slightest.
“Yes, she’s here. She is just getting her bag,” pretty thing snarled at me.
“And you are…” I enquired.
“Never mind who I am, but let me tell you, Lucas Castle—I know who you are. I know your brothers, and I know your game as far as innocent young women like Lizzy are concerned.” I could see she was on a roll and had a whole speech prepared, so I said nothing and let her carry on and get whatever she had to say off of her chest. “Unfortunately, Lizzy has fallen for your charms and is quite looking forward to your dinner tonight, so I hope you have the decency to treat her with a bit of respect. She is not the type of girl who will jump into bed with you on a first date, so if those are your intentions, forget it. I also know where you live, Lucas, so if you are out of order at all tonight, or in the future, or Lizzy comes home with anything other than a smile plastered on her gorgeous face, raving on about what a gentleman you’ve been, then mark my words—I will be coming to find you, and God help you then!” Pretty fishwife lady seemed to have finished. I was smirking slightly, which I knew would irritate her, and it had the desired effect because she scowled at me and turned away muttering expletives. The door was now open, and scary lady stood in front of Lizzy, probably trying to talk her out of going to dinner with me. But that’s not why I started to feel pissed off. The reason I was annoyed was because she was blocking my view of the gorgeous girl I had come to take out to dinner. Lizzy was like an obsession to me, and right at that moment, I needed to see her completely, not just glimpses. As if reading my mind, mad, scary, pretty, fishwife lady was storming off from in front of her and into another room.
As I watched her retreat, my eyes then slid back to the beauty I’d been itching to see, and as my eyes reached her I felt them widen, because the stunning image I saw in front of me was
beyond anything I had imagined over the last few days. I mean, I knew Lizzy would be looking gorgeous for our date, but the woman who stood in front of me looked like a goddess. It was like
Aphrodite was standing right in front of me, a vision to behold.
And I knew right there and then I would never forget this moment for as long as I lived.
Author Andie M Long - Thursday 7.8.14 8-10pm GMT
Over on our Facebook page on Thursday - Author Andie M Long - The creator of The Alphabet game will be taking over for 2 whole hours of fun! Head over and show her some Love!
More on Author Andie M Long;
A zany mother of one, from Sheffield Uk, who loves writing.
Andie M. Long wrote two full length novels before Gabe and Stella entered her mind and so in her usual bonkers fashion decided to self-publish the first novella, having not even written the rest of the series. Something she has smacked herself in the face for since.
Part One of The Alphabet Game went straight to Number One in The UK Amazon Kindle Erotic Short Story chart. She has several published short stories and poems, including an upcoming release for Cracked Eye. Andie has a regular blog at www.wordbohemia.com, ‘The Emergence of the Invisible Writer.’
Since the Alphabet games, which we at Literary Lust just LOVED, Andie is set to release her new book 'Underneath' in the near future - so look out for that!

About Author Natasha Preston:
Hi *waves manically* so after a year of will we, won't we, we finally have our blog it's our new baby and we're excited to share it with you. The main aim is to shout as loud as we can about the books and authors we love, to share our love for book boyfs and our grief when a book ends, to just be a sounding board for when reading alone is just not enough. We'll endeavour to post teasers, blog tours, cover reveals and giveaways. Once Donna and I get the hang of things expect a lot of fangirling, stupid questions and general book chit chat as after all no two people ever really read the same book. So come and join in the fun~Zoë x
