My Tease for this week comes from:

The Temptation of Lila and Ethan 

Jessica Sorensen

First - The Blurb:

Ella's best friend Lila has always been a good girl who likes pretty clothes and preppy boys. But ever since the first day she met Micha's best friend Ethan, she hasn't been able to stop thinking about him. 

Girls have always flocked to Ethan -- but never princesses like Lila. And until Lila came into his life he never wanted them to. From the outside the two couldn't seem more different, but somehow they have a connection deeper and more intense than anyone could have imagined. 

Can two people from such dramatically different worlds really have a love that lasts?

Second - The Tease:

"I forgot something," he whispers in my ear, turning me toward him. His eyes are dark, his hair hanging in his face as his gaze drinks me in slowly, deliberately. I forget to breathe as he leans down and kisses me. And I mean kisses me, the kind of kiss that rips my breath right out of my lungs, makes me forget where I am, who I am. As our tongues entwine, it makes every single struggle I've been through worth it because they've gotten me right here to this moment - they've gotten me to him.

This is not Lila and Ethan's first kiss but it was a sweet moment between them which I felt I had to share.

There's a lot of struggle in this story as both Lila and Ethan try to deal with situations from their past lives. Eventually though, they manage to find away through, away which leads them to each other.
