My Tease for this week comes from:

The Destiny of Violet & Luke
(The Coincidence #3)

Jessica Sorensen 

First - The Blurb:

Luke Price's life has always been about order, control, and acting tough on the outside. For Luke, meaningless relationships are a distraction-a way to tune out the twisted memories of his childhood. He desperately wishes he could forget his past, but it haunts him no matter what he does.

Violet Hayes has had a rough life. When she was young, she was left with no family and the memory of her parents' unsolved murders. She grew up in foster homes, living with irresponsible parents, drugs, and neglect, and trying to fight the painful memories of the night her parents were taken from her. But it's hard to forget when she never got closure-and she can't stop dreaming about what happened that tragic night. To make it through life, she keeps her distance from everyone and never allows herself to feel anything.

Then Violet meets Luke. The two clash instantly, yet they can't seem to stay away from each other. Although they fight it, they both start to open up and feel things they've never felt before. They discover just how similar they are. But they also discover something else: The past always catches up with you . . .

Second - The Teaser:

A Tease from Violet's POV

"Violet," he groans, dragging his teeth across my bottom lip and gently nibbling on it. "I think... I think..." He starts to pull away.

"Don't stop." My voice sounds a little more pleading than I planned and starts to jerk me back to reality, but then he lets out this low growl and his lips literally smash into mine, so forcefully I swear to God I'm going to have a bruise.

A Tease from Luke's POV

Time slips by as the connection between us builds, along with the overwhelming emotions that are consuming me.

Controlling me. But in the end I move slowly because it's not about my control. It's all about her. Every movement, every breath, the way my heart beats fiercely inside my chest, is all because of her.

Violet owns me.

Like many of Jessica's books, The Destiny of Violet and Luke is filled with a roller-coaster of emotions. Both characters have very broken souls due to their pasts. However, as the walls they have built around themselves slowly begin to break down, they discover that life does have an upside.

Unfortunately, their story ends on a bit of a cliff hanger. I'm looking forward to reading the continuation in The Probability of Violet and Luke and then the conclusion in The Certainty of Violet and Luke.

My Rating: 5 out of 5

Breathe for Me
(Be for Me #1)
Natalie Anderson 

The last thing Chelsea Greene wants is to be rescued, but that’s exactly what happens when she’s caught wearing nothing but her swimsuit during a midnight emergency evacuation drill. Turns out her ‘hero’ is a former lifeguard who has no hesitation in offering the kiss of life. So not happening, right? 
But for emotionally chastened Chelsea, one touch changes everything. She discovers a desire to satisfy this arrogant, demanding tease. Unable to express her own fantasies, she finds unspeakable pleasure in serving his.

Xander Lawson exudes easy charm. He likes a woman unafraid to match his appetite for unfettered fun. He doesn’t do complicated or emotional. But the raw need emanating from fragile Chelsea compels him closer. He can’t resist spinning a sensual fantasy world around them. 
As passion spills outside their carefully selected boundaries, Xander learns Chelsea’s stronger than he first thought. But is she strong enough to handle the intensity he’s always kept hidden?
