This week's Tease comes from:

From Ashes

Molly McAdams
First - The Blurb:

Aside from her dad, who passed away when she was six, Cassidy Jameson has only ever trusted one man: her best friend, Tyler. So of course she follows him to Texas when he leaves for college. She just didn't expect to be so drawn to their new roommate, Gage, a gorgeous guy with a husky Southern drawl. The only problem? He's Tyler's cousin.

Gage Carson was excited to share an apartment off campus with his cousin. He didn't mind that Tyler was bringing the mysterious friend he'd heard about since they were kids ... until the most beautiful girl he's ever seen jumps out of his cousin's Jeep. There's something about Cassi that makes Gage want to give her everything. Too bad Tyler has warned him that she's strictly off-limits.

Despite everything keeping them apart, Cassi and Gage dance dangerously close to the touch they're both been craving. But when disaster sends her running into Tyler's arms, Cassi will have to decide whether to face the demons of her past ... or to burn her chance at a future with Gage.

Second - The Tease:

My heart started racing as he slowly lowered his body to mine. Heat zinged through my entire body when his chest pressed against me, his lips still hovering less than an inch from my own. Our eyes searched each other, and his green eyes darkened as he leaned in closer to brush his lips across my forehead and both cheeks. Pulling back slightly, he waited, giving me the opportunity to stop him. I ran a hand through his messy black hair and curled it around the back of his neck, giving the slightest pressure so he'd know I wanted this too. A soft smile broke across his face and he leaned towards me again.

Third - My Thoughts:

Cassidy, abused by her parents for most of her life, finally manges to flee the pain with the help of her bestie - Tyler. Moving to a new city, starting a new life, all seems easy until she meets Gage. Almost instantly, an attraction develops between the two of them. However, Tyler does not approve. Hoping to finally start a relationship with Cassidy himself, he does everything he can to sabotage any chance Cassidy and Gage have of hooking up.

Does he succeed in keeping them apart? Mmm....
The story is well written and quite entertaining although at times it does move a little slowly. Some of the scenes are quite intense and there are a few steamy moments.
My rating: 4 out of  5

  1. The teaser sounds yummy but the cover makes me uncomfortable. It feels like cheating but according to the synopsis, that might just be her best friend. Hmmm...
