My Tease for this week comes from:

Wild Cards

(Wild Cards #1)

Simone Elkeles

First - The Blurb:

After getting kicked out of boarding school, bad boy Derek Fitzpatrick has no choice but to live with his ditzy stepmother while his military dad is deployed. Things quickly go from bad to worse when he finds out she plans to move them back to her childhood home in Illinois. Derek’s counting the days before he can be on his own, and the last thing he needs is to get involved with someone else’s family drama.

Ashtyn Parker knows one thing for certain--people you care about leave without a backward glance. A football scholarship would finally give her the chance to leave. So she pours everything into winning a state championship, until her boyfriend and star quarterback betrays them all by joining their rival team. Ashtyn needs a new game plan, but it requires trusting Derek—someone she barely knows, someone born to break the rules. Is she willing to put her heart on the line to try and win it all?

Second - The Tease(rs):

Tease 1 

Her gaze moves downward and her hand flies to her mouth as she giggles. "Oh my... Derek, your, umm..."

"Huge. I know. Stop staring at it or soon you'll be seein' how impressive it really gets." I gesture to her chest. "You cold, Sugar Pie?"

She crosses her arms on her chest when she realizes that I'm not the only one with body parts sticking out.

This was quite a fun scene. Ashtyn and Deklan are actually at a Trampoline Center called Jumpin Jacks and are wearing skintight Leotards.

Tease 2

He cups the back of my head and urges me to kiss him. When our lips meet, my insides get all tingly. He places little teasing kisses across my lips until I moan and want more... I want him to let go and stop trying to protect me from himself.

Wild Cards was a sweet read but seemed to end a little suddenly.

My Rating: 4 out of 5
