Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

My Tease for this week comes from:
Every Little Piece
(Second Chances #1)
First - The Blurb:
Secrets never stay in the past. The night before high school graduation changes everything. Lies are told. Mistakes are made. Secrets tucked away. Lives are changed in the span of a few hours. A year later, Haley is still reeling, numb with the constant ache of guilt. She's in a place she never expected to be: lost without her friends and Seth. Until he enters her life again, dredging up everything she's trying to forget. Everything about that night. Seth returns to his hometown determined to share his truth, his side of the story. He desperately needs to make things right with Haley, even if it means losing her forever. Because the truth will ruin any chance of her ever loving him again. Except neither of them are prepared for the shock of what really happened the night before graduation.
Second - The Tease:
Shivers ripple across my arms and through my body. Her damp hair fell down around me and her exposed breasts skimmed my chest. She played the tease, hovering just above me but not touching or kissing.
I groaned. Not that I didn't ask for this.
"I love it when you're at my mercy," she said, lowering and skinning her lips across mine.
Her touch, her feel, everything about her was pure sweetness. I wanted to lose myself in her for a few minutes and forget my pathetic life.
Haley and Seth have been in a happy relationship for several years, and then one night, it all comes crashing down. Believing that he is the cause of the tragedy which struck, Seth opts to leave town. It's only when he returns a year later that the real truth finally comes out.
Every Little Piece is an intensely emotional read as both Haley and Seth come to terms with the truth of what really happened on the night before their graduation and slowly begin to find their way back to each other.
“It wasn't your fault. You were just the one who survived. For whatever reason, you lived. So live your life, Haley. Live it for them. Live it fully. Go find love and do what you do with all your heart. Never take this life for granted. It’s what they would want.”
