Tuesday Prelude

Tuesday Prelude is inspired by Should Be Reading's Teaser Tuesday. Since I could never stick to just two lines, I amped up the post a bit, giving you a little bit more than an itty bitty teaser.

This week's prelude is inspired by:

Two years after her best friend was involved in a car accident that caused a traumatic brain injury, Lottie Anders is ready to start her freshman year of college. Ready to move on. Ready to start forgetting the night that ripped her life apart.

Her plans come to a screeching halt when not one, but both brothers responsible for the accident end up back in her life again.

Zack is cruel, selfish and constantly rubbing what happened to her friend in Lottie's face. 

Zan is different. He listens to her awkward ramblings. He loves "To Kill a Mockingbird" as much as she does, and his dark eyes are irresistible. His words are few and far between, but when he does speak, she can't help but listen. 

The trouble is, Zan was the driver in the accident, and now Lottie's discovered he lied to her about what happened that night. Now she must decide if trusting him again will lead to real forgiveness, or deeper heartache.

Zan is the character that piques my interest the most. He's the dark, quiet, broody type and he has a tendency to lash out, releasing the guilt and pain that are his constant companions.

He gets in to college, to the surprise of his parents, and he does his best to pretend this is going to be the fresh start he needs, but...
I could cut my hair and change my clothes, but nothing could change the thing that hovered over me. The thing that people saw when they looked at me, the thing that made them look away and cross to the other side of the street.
Then he runs into Charlotte, Lottie as her friends call her, but he never thought that name suited her. She wants less than nothing to do with him, but that doesn't change anything.
Once again, she was the eclipse, drawing me in. It sounds intense and it is, being drawn to look at someone like that. 
He didn't expect to see her after the years had put some distance between them, even though that distance did nothing to change the feelings he'd developed for her.
Charlotte didn't just shake my world. She created an earthquake that irrevocably changed the landscape of my life.
*sigh* Oh Zan, I really do hope things work out for you. I'm on your side all the way, man.

What you got for me this week lovelies?

Happy Reading Everyone :)
