This weeks teaser come from Breathe by Abbi Glines.  I get a chance to interview the leading guy, Jax Stone, in an upcoming post scheduled for August 1, 2011.  I've been getting to know him so I don't make too much a fool of myself interviewing him.  I think you may like him.  Check out this teaser from him:

He nodded and stood up.  "I am sorry.  When I saw you, and you were young and well...attractive, I thought the only reason someone like you would be working here would be to get close to me.  I deal with females quite a bit, and my assuming you were working here to get near me wasn't fair.  Please forgive me."

A boyish smile tugged at his lips, and he nodded his head toward the door. "I guess I should have figured you were taken by the possessiveness of the other server tonight.  I stared at you more than I should have, but I kept waiting for you to ask for my autograph or slip your number to me on a napkin."

Okay, I know I that went over the two sentence thing again. It's a hard rule for me to follow.  I like to make sure you get the flavor of the book from my teaser.  This one introduces to you Jax, a teen rock star shortly after he meets Sadie, the new kitchen/garden help for the summer.  She didn't know he lived there when she got the job and is worried about keeping her job.  She has to take care of her pregnant mom and needs the money.

Need a picture to go with those words? Well the author just posted a still from the trailer of Jax writing a song.  Check it out here

Review for this one and that fun interview with Jax comes August 1st.  Hope you enjoyed the teaser.  What's yours?  Leave it or a link in the comments.

  7. Great teaser. I haven't heard of this one before. I'm kinda liking Jax's apology, but he seems a tad bit conceded to me. :/

    Here's my teaser:

  8. So I keep hearing that Jax seems conceded or has a big ego.

    I have to say that Jax is a wildly famous teen rock star. He is constantly swamped with adoring fans. Despite that he cares about people and is kind.

    Wait till you hear his answers to my questions in the interview.

    I love Jax!

  9. This sounds like a fun book. One of our reviewers is reading it, can't wait to see what everyone thinks of it.

  10. Awesome teaser, can't wait to see what you think of this book!

  11. Nice teaser! Will have to check out this book! It is hard for me too, only picking out a line or two, I want to use the whole paragraph!


  12. Sounds blunt and like he has a good sense of humor. Definitely piques my curiosity.
