Teaser Tuesday #5

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and it asks us to...

1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share a couple of “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.   (click on the title)




I just finished reading and my review for this book and really wanted to share a teaser from it. The book is a YA romance with a paranormal theme and it really is one of my favorite series to read. I decided to share two teasers from it - one to show the romance and the other to show the kind of suspense the book has that left me constantly wondering what was going to happen next. Enjoy!






The Romance

“We are going to have to stop this or you are going to turn me to a block of ice,” he grinned.
“I don’t think that is possible since my insides are currently on fire with your magic,” I breathed heavily.
     - pg 228


The Suspense

"As it was, he had believed that he was the one who had killed his mother, only to find out that it was possibly an imposter that he had destroyed instead. Of course, there was no question that he had been the one who killed his father."

      - pg 58

the suspense part sounds appealing. but a little bit of romance doesn't hurt right. the book will be much better with some love. )
