Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • 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!)

My Tease for this week comes from:


Colleen Hoover

First - The Blurb:

Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies.In this #1 New York Timesbestselling novel by Colleen Hoover, author of Slammed and Point of Retreat, Sky meets Dean Holder, a guy with a reputation that rivals her own. Holder has the ability to invoke feelings in Sky she's never had before. In just one encounter he leaves her terrified yet captivated and something about him brings up a rush of memories from the past that she’s worked so hard to bury away.

Sky knows Holder is nothing but trouble and tries to keep him at a distance, but he is adamant about learning everything he can about her. Sky finally caves to his unwavering pursuit, but she soon finds out that Holder isn't the person he's been claiming to be. When the secrets he's been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky's life changes forever.

Second - The Tease:

He looks at my lips and when he does, it prompts me to pull my bottom lip between my teeth. Otherwise, I might bite him.

"Let me inform you of something," he says in a low voice. "The moment my lips touch yours, it will be your first kiss. Because if you've never felt anything when someone's kissed you, then on one's ever really kissed you. Not the way I plan on kissing you."

And later in the story:

Our lips move passionately together as we struggle to pull ourselves closer, wanting to find that perfect connection with our bodies that we've just found with our mouths. He works his mouth against mine delicately, yet fiercely  and I match him movement for movement. I release several moans and even more breaths and he drinks each one of them in with his mouth.

Third - My Thoughts:

I know many of you are already familiar with this book so I will keep my thoughts brief.

I decided to read this book after reading many great reviews. It did not disappoint. I was captured right from the start. It is a very intense read but Colleen has done such a great job writing it that it is also an easy read. The words flow making it easy to relate with the characters and feel the intensity of their emotions as the mystery's of the past are revealed.

I will say that I could see what was coming about half way through the story but that didn't make me like it any less. I loved the interaction between Sky and Holder and I'm looking forward to reading Losing Hope and seeing the story through Holder's eyes.

My Rating; 5 out of 5
