If I were to pick a Wattpad author who I think has a similar style to my writing, it would be Natalie Marie, hands down! I love this book. It’s easy to read, it’s fun, and it’s got a love story that will make your toes curl.
Drunk on Love by Natalie Marie
Something old: Her ex-boyfriend, Casey. Something new: His gorgeous wife, Julia. Something borrowed: A slinky, black dress. Something blue: A pair of eyes staring at her like she’s crazy.
Somehow Becca Felix tricked herself into thinking that going to Casey’s wedding was a good idea. It wasn’t. In fact, it was beyond terrible. Not only did she make a fool of herself, but she woke up with a killer hang-over and in bed with his best friend. Cue the awkwardness and watch the sparks fly.
This is a story about letting go, hanging on, realizing who you are and why fate should always come with a pair of blue eyes.
What sparked the idea for Drunk on Love?
Drunk on Love actually started life out as a short story. I was a year out of college and found myself amidst wedding season and several friends starting the next chapter of their lives with their special someones.
There were always reconnection with new people, old acquaintances and a slew of quasi-wedding dates. Becca and Nick’s story was born.
Your book starts with your MC having to attend the wedding of her ex-boyfriend. Oh, the horror! Have you or would you do this?
I have not attended an ex’s wedding, but I have been to a wedding or two where ex’s of guests or the bride or groom were present. It’s the nature of a close knit group of friends and college town I suppose. Would I do
this? I’m not sure. I guess I’ll know if the opportunity presents itself.
I know I tend to weave in parts of my personality into my female lead characters. Do you see any of yourself in Becca?
I think inadvertently there is a bit of me in all of my characters, and my friends for that matter. Like me, Becca enjoys what she does for a living, is close to her family and is a closet romantic.
Are you a pantser or a plotter and why?
I’ve tried honorably and adamantly to be a plotter. I have almost OCD-like tendencies in other parts of my life, but aside from very blurry scenes and general plot lines I can’t force my writing. I’m a pantser through and through.
How are we going to celebrate when you hit the best seller list?
This is mind-boggling to even think of this happening. I picture a signing with big cardboard character cutouts and drinks all around to celebrate. Just enjoying the moment with everyone who helped inspire me and make it possible.
