Teaser Tuesday # 81 ~ Sweet Blood Of Mine by John Corwin

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

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Tease for this week comes from:

Sweet Blood of Mine

(Overworld Chronicles #1)

John Corwin

First - The Blurb:

From Mega Nerd to Super Stud.

Justin Case and women do not mix. Man boobs, a love of Kings and Castles, and being tight with the "nerd" crowd certainly don't win him any points either. After rescuing Katie, his crush, it turns out she might not be the girl he thought she was, while Elyssa, the school's Goth Girl, turns out to be more. Can high school get any more confusing? 

Determined to improve himself, he joins a gym and meets a sexy girl that just oozes a "come hither, Justin" vibe. Until she attacks him in the parking lot, and Justin realizes she's no ordinary girl but a being with supernatural speed and strength. After a narrow escape and an excruciating migraine headache, he wakes up with supernatural abilities all his own: speed, strength, and the ability to seduce every woman he sees. 

While that might sound like the perfect combo for any hormonal teen, Justin is a hopeless romantic who wants his first time to be special. Is that too much to ask for? But he doesn't know what he is or how to stop his carnal urges. One thing is clear: If he doesn't find answers there are other more sinister supernaturals who would like nothing better than to make him their eternal plaything and do far worse than kill him.

Second - The Tease: (or in this case, Teasers)

Tease 1

She looked so vulnerable and scared that I wanted to kiss her again. But I couldn't. It was all I could do to hold my demonic sexual urge back from groping her essence. When 'demonic' becomes a common adjective you use to describe yourself, you know you have a problem.

Tease 2

I pulled her lips back to mine. her scent was intoxicating. The touch of her body against mine was like being kissed by the sun. I ran a hand up her neck, clenched her hair at the nape, and gave it a gentle tug. She moaned. I groaned. her teeth nipped my neck and I shuddered with pleasure. Fire rushed from my stomach and flooded my veins. My lust slammed against its rib cage like a wild beast. My control faltered.

Tease 3

"You heard me. I have been chased by the undead, fought vampires, freed my dad from a crypt, and brought my super hot vampire lover back from the dead by letting her drink my blood. Man, I need something normal."

Yeah, that last teaser pretty much summons up just how abnormal Justin's life is. This is a quirky read with a lot of fun moments.
