Teaser Tuesday #120 ~ Crossing the Line (World Apart #1) by Nicola Marsh

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Tease for this week comes from:

Crossing the Line
(World Apart #1)
Nicola Marsh 

First - The Blurb:

Laying it all on the line for love… 

Mia Cresswell is tired of being good. 
Achieving geek status at college doesn’t equate with fun. So when she heads home to her dad’s tennis academy in Santa Monica on spring break, she’s determined to be bad. And hot Aussie tennis star Kye Sheldon is just the guy to help her do it. 

However, Kye’s troubled past continues to dog him and attending the Cresswell Tennis Academy is his last chance at the big time. He can’t afford to screw up…by screwing the boss’s daughter. 
But Mia and Kye’s relationship is much more than a vacation fling. 
Will it be game, set, match, when the truth is revealed? 
Or will Mia and Kye have a real shot at love all?

Second - The Tease(rs):

Tease 1 (From Mia's POV)

The wicked quirk to his lips made my heart pound in anticipation as he lowered his head and kissed me. Slow. Sensual. Deep. The type of kiss that could make a girl forget everything but being naked and wet with a guy like Kye.

Tease 2 (From Kye's POV)

I kissed her. Grazing my lips over hers. Repeatedly. Deepening the pressure with every pass until her mouth opened. My tongue slipped in, touched hers and I lost it.
I ravaged her mouth. Long, deep, hot kisses.
She moaned when I groped her butt and pulled her flush against me, her thighs parting so I fit snug.
Damn, there was no f***ing way this could stop at a kiss.
I wrenched  my mouth from hers with difficulty. "Mia, we can't..."
"Ssh." She pressed a finger against my lips. "As much as I like hearing your accent, right now I want something else."

Although I come from the 'Land Down Under', I haven't read too many books where the love interest is Australian. Caught by the cover and intrigued by the blurb, I just had to read this one and I wasn't disappointed. I loved the banter between Mia and Kye. Their story is simple but written very effectively. I look forward to reading the next installment of this series.

My Rating: 4 out of 5.
