Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • 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!)

My Tease for this week comes from:

All Broke Down
(Rusk University #2)
Cora Carmack

First - The Blurb:

In this second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with All Lined Up, a young woman discovers that you can't only fight for what you believe in... sometimes you have to fight for what you love.

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.

Environmental issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians you name it, she's probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail overnight, she meets Silas Moore. He's in for a different kind of fighting. And though he's arrogant and infuriating, she can't help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.

Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it's trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He's met girls like her before fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn't think he's broken, and he definitely doesn't need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about: his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.

Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.

Second - The Tease(rs):

Tease 1
“I will never be able to turn this girl down. Whatever she wants from me, it’s hers. No matter what she asks for, I’ll find a way to give it to her. She may not be mine, but somewhere along the way, I ended up hers.” 
... Silas

Tease 2
“He blocks out the sun, and maybe it’s the pain or maybe it’s just him, but it feels like one of those rare total eclipses where you know you’re not supposed to look because it can destroy your eyes or something, but it’s so incredible that you can’t help it.” 
... Dylan

I first met Silas in All Lined Up (the first book in the Rusk University series). He came across as a bit of a jerk, someone who didn't seem to think too much before he acted. 

In All broke Down, he starts off in a similar way. Fortunately though, as the story progresses and his relationship with Dylan develops and grows, he begins to change and reveals a sweeter, softer side of himself. And you can't help but to like him.

All Broke Down is written from both Dylan and Silas's POV making it an easy and enjoyable read. Definitely one for the TBR pile if you like Cora's work.

My Rating: 5 out of 5

  2. I like it when the character grows, matures, and changes. He may be kickin and screamin, but he's a goner for her. LOL
