My Tease for this week comes from:

Twisted Perfection

(Perfection #1)

Abbi Glines

*** WARNING ***

Definitely 18+

First - The Blurb:

My future was about to be completely thrown off track because Della Sloane was under my skin, and I had to have her. I couldn’t ignore it anymore . . . I’d gotten close enough to her to see deeper. 

Della Sloane is not your average girl. Yearning to break free of her dark and sheltered past and the memories of the illness that claimed her mother, Della plans a solo road trip to experience real life on her own terms. But the trip is nearly cut short in the little beach town of Rosemary when she realizes she can’t even pump her own gas—until Woods Kerrington shows up, more than willing to help out a pretty girl in need.

Woods’s family wants him to settle down with a wealthy woman in pearls, but he can’t resist this carefree girl in cutoffs passing through town. A one-night stand should have been enough, but months later, Woods can’t get the irresistible Della out of his head.

When a twist of fate brings Della back to Woods, all signs point to trouble if they don’t keep their distance. Neither is truly free, and a relationship could destroy both of them. With their hearts on the line, Della thinks the safest bet is to walk away. But Woods isn’t about to let that happen . . .

Second - The Tease:

She pulled her bottom lip into her mouth and bit down. I wanted to taste that mouth.

I didn't walk around to my side. I'd get to that later. I crawled up in the truck and closed the door behind me before grabbing each side of her head and tilting it just right. My mouth covered hers and I let her taste slowly sink into me. Each small moan from her lips pounded through my veins. The fullness of her bottom lip as it moved against my mouth with inexperienced hunger was driving me mad.

Third - My Thoughts:

This was one steamy read right from the start. 

Della, having lived a very sheltered life and suddenly free, decides to explore the real world. Embarking on a journey where she tries to find herself, she ends up in a small town where she meets Woods. After indulging in a one-night-stand, she moves on not realizing that the two of them have formed a connection.

Woods is your typical hot guy with everything going for him - or so it would seem. His life is not quite as picture perfect as the outside world thinks.

When destiny returns Della to Woods's little corner of the world, the spark which was ignited the first time around, leaps into full flame. Unable to keep away from each other, the romance between them blooms, but not without consequences.

If you like a read with many steamy scenes, then you can't go past this one.

My Rating: 4 out of 5
