Teaser Tuesday #87 ~ Embrace by Jessica Shirvington

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:


(The Violet Eden Chapters #1)

Jessica Shirvington

First - The Blurb:

It starts with a whisper: “It’s time for you to know who you are…”

Violet Eden dreads her seventeenth birthday. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. As if that wasn’t enough, disturbing dreams haunt her sleep and leave her with very real injuries. There’s a dark tattoo weaving its way up her arms that wasn’t there before. 

Violet is determined to get some answers, but nothing could have prepared her for the truth. The guy she thought she could fall in love with has been keeping his identity a secret: he’s only half-human—oh, and same goes for her.

A centuries-old battle between fallen angels and the protectors of humanity has chosen its new warrior. It’s a fight Violet doesn’t want, but she lives her life by two rules: don’t run and don’t quit. When angels seek vengeance and humans are the warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden…

Second - The Teasers:

Tease 1
“Did you ever think we would be anything other than unbelievable?” 

Tease 2
"Kissing you is.. I tried so hard for so long to deny myself. I tried to do the right thing. But ever since we kissed on your birthday I knew once I started I'd never be able.. even through we can't..” 

Tease 3
I pushed passed him. He grabbed my hand and swung me back towards him. Then he pushed me against the wall and... he kissed me.
He ran his thumb along my jawline and down my throat, hips pinning me to the wall. He kissed me slowly and with intensity, and once I got over the mind-numbing shock and comprehended what was actually happening, it was incredible. I had never been kissed like that before. We melted together. Every movement of mine was somehow perfectly mirrored by his. My heart was pounding so hard I knew he must be able to feel it and I was sure my legs were giving way, but he held me up, pushed me harder against the wall.

Sorry, but once again, I have found it way too difficult to give you only one tease and keep it to 2 sentences. 

And why the two covers?
The one on the right is the version I borrowed from my local library. The one on the left is from Amazon.
Personally, I prefer the one on the left.

  5. I liked the first book in the series- but never moved on to the second or third. I think this was when I got burned out on angel stories.

  7. I love this series. I heard the fourth book is a killer so I am waiting until book 5 is released which is soonish. I wish they could combine the covers because that would be awesome. The Australian covers have faces where the US has no face lol so weird. Great teasers can't wait to see what you think of the rest of the series!
