My Tease for this week comes from:

Three Broken Promises
(One Week Girlfriend #3)

Monica Murphy 

First - The Blurb:

**Mature situations and sexual content recommended for ages 17+**

Commitment. That’s what I really want from Colin. Ever since my brother, Danny, died in Iraq, Colin’s done so much to help me, including giving me a job at his popular restaurant so I can leave my crappy waitressing job at the strip joint. But lying in bed with him every night to comfort him from his horrible nightmares isn’t enough anymore. I know he feels guilty about Danny’s death, about not going to Iraq, but I can’t keep living this double life. 

I love him desperately, but he’s got so many demons, and if he can’t open up to me now, then he’ll never be the real partner I need him to be. I gave him a month, and now I’m out of here. If he truly loves me like he says, he knows where to find me.

Second - The Tease(rs):

A Tease from Jen's Pov

Colin Wilder is the epitome of too much.

He shifts closer so that our lips practically touch. "I have no idea," I whisper, my lips moving over his as I speak. His mouth is on mine and then he's kissing me. Soft, heady kisses that make me dizzy, my lips parting with every brush of his, a whimper escaping me when he draws my lower lip in between his and sucks.

He feels so good, tastes even better, and he shifts against me.

A Tease from Colin's POV

She tentatively places her hands on my hips, her fingers curling into the waistband of my jeans. Having her hands on me sends little darts of  fire throughout my insides, making me harden in an instant. She has no idea what sort of effect she has on me. How much restraint I'm using at this very moment not to throw her over my shoulder like an oversexed caveman and cart her off to my room.

Three Broken Promises is the third book in the One Week Girlfriend series by Monica Murphy. Following the story of Jen and Colin, it is an entertaining read filled with a lot of emotional turmoil and steamy bedroom scenes. Although I did enjoy it for the most part, I preferred reading Fable and Drew's story more.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

  4. I totally agree. I didn't love this story as much as Fable's and Drew's.Is it bad that when Jen was complaining all I could think was "Uh Drew here has waaay more issues" probably bad I was just sick of her wallowing and bad planning skills.

    Great teasers though I am really liking them!

  5. I wasn't a big Colin fan but it's a good book.
