My Tease for this week comes from:

My Sweetest Escape

(My Favorite Mistake #2)

Chelsea M. Cameron

First - The Blurb:

The past will always find you.

Jos Archer was the girl with the perfect life; until the night it all came crashing down around her. Now, nine months later, she still hasn't begun to pick up the pieces. Even transferring to a new college and living under the watchful eye of her older sister, Renee, isn't enough to help her feel normal again.

And then she meets Dusty Sharp. For reasons Jos can't begin to fathom, the newly reformed campus bad boy seems determined to draw her out of her shell. And if she's not careful, his knowing green eyes and wicked smile will make her feel things she's no longer sure she deserves.

But even as Dusty coaxes Jos to open up about the past, he's hiding secrets of his own. Secrets about the night her old life fell apart. When the truth is finally revealed, will it bring them closer together;or tear them apart for good?

Second - The Teasers:

Tease 1

He pulled some hair loose from my bun and twirled it around his fingers. "Want to try it slower this time? We have all day."

Tease 2

"Live the day," I said, touching the sides of his face. He felt so good.

"Yeah, Nate used to say that."

"I know."

"So let's live, Joscelyn. Right now."

So I brought his mouth back to mine, and our lips had another joyous reunion. Now it was time for our bodies to be introduced. The kiss got more intense, and he pressed himself against me, and I knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I wanted to give myself to him, completely.

After experiencing a traumatic event in her life for which she blames herself, Jos (Joscelyn) suddenly changes from being the perfect everything (student, daughter, sister) to being a party girl who seems to care about very little. Concerned for her daughter, Jos's mother sends her to live with her sister Renee in the hope that a fresh start will return her to the way she was. As one can expect, Jos is a little resentful, and although she follows the rules her sister imposes on her, she isn't particularly happy about it.

Enter Dusty. A friend and constant visitor of the house Jos shares with her sister and five other roomies, he soon forms a friendship with Jos. As the attraction between them grows, they both start to develop significant feelings for each other but it takes a while before either one of them finally acts on them. Dusty does have a positive affect on Jos, but with both of them holding back secrets, there are a few rocky moments before they finally manage to put the pain and loss of the past behind them and move forward.

I really enjoyed My Sweetest Escape. It was a great follow on from My Favorite Mistake which I read last year. Chelsea Cameron is a very talented author who knows how to claim your attention and keep you enthralled.

My Rating: 5 out of 5
