My Tease for this week comes from:

All Lined Up
(Rusk University #1)
Cora Carmack

First - The Blurb:

In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both.

Dallas Cole loathes football. That's what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.

But life doesn't always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again.

Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It's obliterated.

Dallas doesn't know Carson is on the team. Carson doesn't know that Dallas is his new coach's daughter.

And neither of them know how to walk away from the attraction they feel.

Second - The Tease(rs):

I don't know anything about this guy except that his eyes make my mind fuzzy, and his muscled arms make my mouth water, and the things he keeps saying... they burn – beginning in my flushed cheeks, blazing through my blood, and curling between my legs until I feel like I have to squeeze them together just to keep from combusting on the spot.

"Carson McClain, you scare me like nothing has ever scared me before. You drive me crazy and make me laugh and push my buttons on purpose. You make me feel safe and smart and pretty. Sometimes I think I might actually melt when you wrap your arms around me, and right now I feel a little bit like I might die if you don't kiss me."

I can deny myself all I want, but one thing I cannot deny is just how f***ing gorgeous this girl is. And exactly the kind of distraction I'm supposed to be staying away from.

It's been a while since I read a book written by Cora. Once again, she didn't disappoint. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dallas and Carson's story. The funny way they met. The struggle to maintain a friendship which constantly threatened to be more. And their eventual acceptance that 'more' is good.

If you're a fan of Cora's work, don't miss this one.

My Rating: 5 out of 5

    'Says who?'
