To participate you:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
(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 the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Some things are sexier the second time around.

Cal Payton has gruff and grumbly down to an art...all the better for keeping people away. And it usually works. Until Jenna MacMillan-his biggest mistake---walks into Payton and Sons mechanic shop all grown up, looking like sunshine, and inspiring more than a few dirty thoughts.

Jenna was sure she was long over the boy she'd once loved with reckless abandon, but one look at the steel-eyed Cal Payton has her falling apart all over again. Ten years may have passed, but the pull is stronger than ever... and this Cal is all man.

Cal may have no intention of letting Jenna in, but she's always been his light, and it's getting harder to stay all alone in the dark. When a surprise from the past changes everything, Cal and Jenna must decide if their connection should be left alone or if it's exactly what they need for the future of their dreams.

Happy Release Day!

My review posted yesterday, if you missed it.


Cal could kiss, always could.  Just the right pressure with the right texture on those maddening ridges on his lips.  But back then, he'd been a boy.  He kissed with the intent to move on to the main show.

The Cal she was kissing now was all man.  A man who knew what a kiss could do, how it affected a woman.  How a kiss was its own skill.  And boy, how she loved kissing this man. (Kindle location 720)

SO LOVE CAL!  That is all.

Scorched (Frigid, #2)
Sometimes life leaves a mark…

Most days, Andrea doesn’t know whether she wants to kiss Tanner or punch him in the gut. He is seriously hot, with legit bedroom eyes and that firefighter body of his, but he’s a major player, and they can’t get along for more than a handful of minutes. Until now.

Tanner knows he and Andrea have had an epic love/hate relationship for as long as he can remember, but he wants more love than hate from her. He wants her. Now. Tomorrow. But the more he gets to know her, the more it becomes obvious that Andrea has a problem. She’s teetering on the edge and every time he tries to catch her, she slips through his fingers.

Andrea’s life is spiraling out of control, and it doesn’t matter that Tanner wants to save her, because when everything falls apart and she’s speeding toward rock bottom, only she can save herself.

Sometimes life makes you work for that happily ever after…


Teaser #1...

"I'm...I'm sorry?" 
His gaze lifted. "You're sorry?" 
"For...um, kissing you? And treating you like...a pole?" 
A small grin tugged at the corners of his lips. "Andy, you never have to apologize for using me as a pole. Anytime you want to climb on, you let me know."

Teaser #2...

Andrea stared up at me, her full pouty lips parted and brown eyes wide, full of such potent sadness that an urge to sweep her into my arms hit me hard. I barely felt whoever it was that bumped into me as I moved toward Andrea. Her lips moved but I didn't hear her. 
"What?" I asked. 
"You don't smile at me," she said louder, and I blinked. Her shoulders rose with a heavy sigh, and that urge increased. 
"Andy," I said, shaking my head. "I always smile at you."

(I couldn't choose between using the funny-funny teaser and the one that made my heart flip, so I just decided to use both.)

I am loving the crap out of this book. JLA is amazing. And this story in particular? Dang. Hitting the funny bone and the serious feels bone. Loooove.

Those are our teasers for this week! What do you think? Do you have a teaser to share? Leave us a comment!
