My Tease for this week comes from:
First - The Blurb:
New Adult Contemporary Romance - Only intended for readers age 17+ due to sexual situations and strong language.
A city girl.
A small town boy.
A summer they'll never forget.
Spending the summer at her Grammy's in Lilac Bay, Devon, is city girl Alexis 'Lexy' Edwards' idea of hell. That is, until she reconnects with her childhood friend, Jen, and meets Alec Johnson.
Alec is the kind of guy Lexy knows she needs to stay away from. He's the village flirt, ridiculously hot and very dangerous to her self control. But there's a problem – she can't seem to keep him out, even though she knows he'll break her heart.
As Alec slowly strips away Lexy's defences and the two embark on a summer romance she never wanted, their feelings grow to more than either expected. But nothing lasts forever, and reality intrudes.
As her world is shaken to it's core, Lexy's self made prediction comes true when she discovers she's spent six weeks surrounded by secrets. Kept out by her family and the only guy she's ever trusted, she falls apart.
And when Grammy tells her that 'you might not end up where you wanted to be, but you'll always end up where you're meant to be,' she has to figure out if her meant to be is back home in London, or if it's been in Devon the whole time.
Second - The Tease(rs):
His lips are soft, like a silky rose petal, and they merge against mine in a perfection only seen in movies. He's gentle, ever so gentle, brushing his lips over mine again and again.
I reach up and wrap my arms around his neck, my fingers entwining in his hair. I want more, more than just a gentle kiss. I've had a taste of him, of heaven, and I don't know how to stop. All that exists in this second is him. Alec, the guy I'd vowed to stay away from.
Yeah, like those vows ever work.
Alec is one hot dude that Lexy finds hard to resist even though she knows she should.
"Nothing, nothing at all Princess," he says with a throaty laugh. "But Jen told me you're still a virgin and your first time isn't gonna be because I couldn't control myself. It's gonna be when you say so, where you say so, and how you say so. I want it to be something you'll remember because it was special, not because it's something you'll regret."
Alec is one considerate guy. I think this is one of the reasons why Lexy has such a hard time staying away from him.
I exhale sharply and shake my head against her. She's driving me crazy with every look, every touch, every kiss, and she doesn't even get the half of it. She doesn't understand just how much I want her.
She can't comprehend how much I want her. Hell, not even I can make sense of it. I just know that I do. Bad.
Alec and Lexy develop an attraction to each other pretty early in the book but it takes quite some time before either one of them finally acts on their feelings. Although this book has a slow start, it is an easy and enjoyable read.
