Teaser Tuesday # 185 ~ Keep Me Still (Keep Me Still #1) by Caisey Quinn

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • 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!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Keep Me Still
(Keep Me Still #1)
Caisey Quinn

First - The Blurb:

Layla Flaherty had the perfect life, or close to it. Until a stranger gunned her parents down right in front of her, leaving her with seizure inducing PTSD. After years of trying to pass as normal and failing miserably, she resigns herself to being invisible. But new to town Landen O’Brien sees her, and he likes what he sees. Much to Layla’s surprise, he doesn’t freak out when she has a seizure in front of him. He does the exact opposite, calming her until the tremors subside. But Landen has secrets of his own. Secrets that both bind them together and tear them apart. 

Scarred by loss, Layla leaves her hometown of Hope Springs, Georgia, hoping to put her painful past behind her and start over in college in California. When she runs into Landen at freshmen orientation, she has a choice to make. Reinforce those steel walls she's built up around herself or give the only boy who can keep her still a second chance. 

Landen’s more than ready to tear down those walls but this time when they come crashing down, they might bury her.

Second - The Tease(rs):

Tease 1
"I am so gone. Lost. Her smile, the little sigh she lets out, the way her eyes light up. All of it. I’m broken down and rebuilt. And nothing will ever be the same again."

Tease 2
"I love you, Layla Flaherty," I tell her because I can feel how badly she needs to hear it. "But you already know that, don’t you?"
I watch as her pupils dilate and she licks her lips. "I do."
"So what are you going to do about it?" I lean back, despite my body’s protest to throw her down and tear her clothes to shreds. 
"I'm going to love you right back."

When I purchased a copy of Keep Me Still, it included the prequel and sequel novellas - Let You Leave and Hold Us Close. I've read Let Me Leave but have not yet finished the novel and sequel so I will refrain on giving my rating and thoughts for now.
