This weeks teaser is from Kristan Higgins new book Somebody to Love.  I'm part of the tour on this one, coming up next week when the book releases April 24th.  It's an adult contemporary, so a little out of the ordinary for me but a good one.

Parker ripped off the jeans, dimly hearing herself shrieking, and ran out of the house, through the grass and right up onto the hood of her car.  "Bugger! Bugger! Jeesh!" she yelped.  Her jeans were clutched in her hand.  What if there were more in there?  What if a whole family of rodents was in her jeans right now?  Once there was a family of mice who loved to snuggle up against the warm flesh of an unwitting human. She whipped the pants against the car, cracking them against the hood again and again and again, shrieking at the remembered feeling of tine claws.  On her leg.  Her skin. On her ass! 

"Hey Parker" came a voice.  She kept cracking.  "Parker?"  

She looked up, her breath stuttering in and out of her chest.

Thing One.  Thing One was here.

"Hi," he said, as if she wasn't murdering her jeans against the hood. Page 78

Yeah, I know it's more than two sentences.  Really I wanted more.  The part where the mouse actually ran up her pants was pretty funny too.  Still this part was priceless.  That thing one she refers to is James, the hot guy that works for her Dad.  It's perfect really, him showing up at this moment of craziness.  I laughed so loud family members came to check on me!

So what ya think?  Leave me a comment and your teaser too.


  1. It sounds funny to read about it but I'm sure I would have freaked if I was in her position. Great teaser.

  2. haha Great tease! I always cheat on length too! It's all good! That sounds so cute! I actually had a bunch of pet mice so they don't freak me out. But then one time a wild one ran across my foot in the kitchen and it did creepy me out a little bit. This sounds cute!
