Teaser Tuesday ~ 10/2/18

This is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new standalone that proves true love will always stand the test of time.
“I hate you. I never want to see you again.”

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again.

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past.

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.

What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?


I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves.
That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up.

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story.

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.


I contemplate how to answer her.  While she knows I had a screwed-up past, she has no clue just how screwed up.  I've let her assume what she wants to assume to avoid her putting a label on me like anyone else who has ever found out has.  So, without giving her the correct context, there's only one explanation I can give her that she'll buy.
"You were right."
She accidentally drops the onion in her hands onto the floor.  "Excuse me?  Did I hear you correctly?" (Page 290)

I liked this moment of friendship where Emerson lets the rest of us know how it feels to be pitied.  I really love Emerson.  She's fueled by her past and I love her for it.

That's our teaser for this week! What do you think? Do you have a teaser to share? Leave us a comment and link us up!
