My Tease for this week comes from:

A Court of Thorns and Roses
(A Court of Thorns and Roses #1)
Sarah J. Maas   

First - The Blurb:

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price.

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

Second - The Tease:

"I'm thinking I might kiss you," he said quietly, intently.
"Then do it." I blushed at my boldness.
But Tamlin only gave that breathy laugh, and leaned in.
His lips brushed mine - testing, soft and warm. He pulled back a little. He was still staring at me, and I stared right back as he kissed me again, harder, but nothing like the way he'd kissed my neck. He withdrew more fully this time and watched me.
"That's it?" I demanded, and he laughed and kissed me fiercely.

I heard so many great things about this book that I was just dying to read it. And it did not disappoint. The story is amazing. The characters are awesome. And it does not lack for romance or action.

I really liked Feyre. She's loyal, strong, brave and when it comes to protecting those she loves, she will just about do anything. Tamlin is also amazing. At times he comes across as dominant and powerful. At others, he appears unbelievably sweet and caring. Watching the relationship slowly unfold between these two characters was at times, highly enjoyable, and at others, heartbreaking. I can't wait for the next installment. I'm sure it will be just as intense.

This is the first book I've read by Sarah. She has a great writing style and  I am now very keen to start The Throne of Glass series.

My Rating: 5 out of  5
