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 the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
“Once, I would’ve taken those words as a romantic, sugar-coated fairy tale and built a castle of dreams on them. Now, they’re a hard-won promise forged in fire and loss by a man who means every word he says. I want to brand them into my skin as proof that I still have something left to fight for.”

I guess it was my week to be indecisive. ;o)
“Shh.” His hand slipped up my spine and cupped the nape of my neck. “Do you love me?”
Our eyes met and held. “Yes. Yes. I love you more than anything.”
Aiden’s smile faded. “Do you love me more than him?”
I still in his suddenly lax embrace. “More than who?”
My gaze fell past him again, to the darkness. A man had his back to us. He was pressed against a woman, his lips on her throat.
“Do you love me more than him?”
“Who?” I tried to press closer, but he held me back. Uncertainty blossomed in my belly when I saw the disappointment in his silvery eyes. “Aiden, what’s wrong?”
“You don’t love me.” He dropped his hands, stepping back. “Not when you’re with him, when you chose him.”

“He cut himself off and looked away, dragging a hand through his hair. “I just met her,” he muttered to himself. “I’ll no’ say that.”
“Cut the crap,” Megan said. “Zachary Moore, this is Aura Salvatore, and yes, she’s into science even though she’s pretty. Shocker. Get over it.” She turned to me. “Show him how you can walk and chew gum at the same time.””

“‘I don’t know the whole story. Just that she was supposed to show up at a friend’s house and then… didn’t. They found her body a few days later, and she was definitely murdered, but I haven’t heard how yet. Her dad’s a cop, and I think they’re keeping it quiet or something. Hey, you okay?’
