My Tease for this week comes from:

Best Kind of Broken
(Finding Fate #1)
Chelsea Fine 

First - The Blurb:

Pixie Marshall wishes every day she could turn back time and fix the past. But she can't. And the damage is done. She's hoping that a summer of free room and board working with her aunt at the Willow Inn will help her forget. Except there's a problem: the resident handyman is none other than Levi Andrews. The handsome quarterback was once her friend-and maybe more-until everything changed in a life-shattering instant. She was hoping to avoid him, possibly forever. Now he's right down the hall and stirring up feelings Pixie thought she'd long buried . . .

Levi can't believe he's living with the one person who holds all his painful memories. More than anything he wants to make things right, but a simple "sorry" won't suffice-not when the tragedy that scarred them was his fault. Levi knows Pixie's better off without him, but every part of him screams to touch her, protect her, wrap her in his arms, and kiss away the pain. Yet even though she's so close, Pixie's heart seems more unreachable than ever. Seeing those stunning green eyes again has made one thing perfectly clear-he can't live without her.

Second - The Tease:

For long seconds we stand there, staring at each other as water beats down on me. And then his eyes fall to my mouth.

Oh crap.

My eyes fall to his mouth as well, and the atmosphere ignites. Now we're in this steamy, tense standoff - half in, half out of the shower - heads tilted toward each other and eyes locked on mouths. And I've already surrendered.
... Pixie

Yeah, I know what you're thinking... are they naked? Guess you'll need to read the book to find out. (Yeah, I know that's cruel, but I don't want to give away any spoilers)

After seeing Best Kind of Broken featured on several blogs, I just had to get a copy for myself. And I'm so glad that I did. Although heartbreaking at times, it was an awesome read, one which will keep you glued to the pages from beginning to end.

Pixie and Levi have known each other since early childhood, but one night when a terrible accident happens, their world is shattered and they are torn apart. Finding themselves coming face to face with each other a year later, they try to keep the past buried by hiding behind teasing remarks, witty banter and childish pranks.

However, the past doesn't wish to remain buried, and eventually, the true feelings they hold for each other rise to the surface. 

This is the first book I've read written by Ms. Fine. I like her easy writing style and will definitely be adding more of her books to my shelf.

My Rating: 5 out of 5
