My Tease for this week comes from:

You Were Mine 
(Rosemary Beach #9)
Abbi Glines  

First - The Blurb:

From #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Abbi Glines comes a brand-new Rosemary Beach novel about Tripp Newark and his hidden romantic past with Bethy Lowry. 

In the eyes of the wealthy playboys who frequent Kerrington Country Club in Rosemary Beach, Tripp Newark is a hero. Under pressure from his parents to become a lawyer and lead a conservative, upper-class life, Tripp disappeared from town five years ago to travel the world, forfeiting the opportunity to inherit millions. Yet few know what he was really running from...

Bethy Lowry was unraveling long before her boyfriend drowned in a riptide trying to save her after she'd had one too many drinks--again. A trailer park kid working as a cart girl among the wealthy patrons of Kerrington Country Club, Bethy has always been impressionable. But five years ago, before she earned her reputation as a hard-drinking, easy girl, she had spent a single summer with Tripp Newark that changed her life forever...

Second - The Tease(rs):

 From Tripp's POV

Tease 1
She inhales sharply, and for a moment , she didn't react. Then her hands were in my hair as I slipped my tongue along her bottom lip. She opened for me slowly, and I dove in, ready to taste her. The feel of her honey-sweet warmth made me shiver. It was better than I'd expected. I slid my hands under her dress to feel her bare skin as she made a soft moaning noise and leaned closer to me.

F***, this was good. No, this was perfect. This was one of those kisses that changed everything. I wanted to feel more of her, but we were on a public beach, and I didn't like the idea of other guys watching what was mine.

Tease 2
“I know you want to take this slow, and you’re scared. I get it. But I can’t . . . this is mine. It always was. You were mine then, and you’re mine now.”

Yeah, Tripp is a little on the possessive side. But he made a huge mistake years ago and he's determined on setting things right.

From Beth's POV

Tease 3
I wanted to tell him he should stop. This couldn't go anywhere. It would only add to the pain. But my head tilted back, and I arched my neck instead. An open invitation.

Tripp groaned just before his lips touched my skin. The hot tip of his tongue darted out and licked its way up the side of my neck, and then he pulled my earlobe with his teeth gently before kissing his way to my mouth. I knew it was coming, and all I could do was hold my breath in anticipation.

When his lips covered mine, reality ceased to matter.

Beth struggles between turning Tripp away or letting him back into her world. From the tease above, I think you can guess which side is winning.

I'm still loving this series.

My Rating: 5 out of 5
