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!

“I love the way you avoid a conversation you don’t want to have by making an astute observation about me.”
“Don’t you mean astute-y?”

“I am returning from an audition,” she explained.
Matt snickered. “An audition for something legal or illegal?”
She glared at him. “Legal of course. A local band was looking for new talent, so I performed to the best of my abilities.”

“That’s a relief.” Justin jostled her shoulders and then slid one arm behind her neck. “Let’s go to dinner, and you can tell me about it.”

“Is everything ok?”
“Everything is violently perfect! Why would you ask?”
“Violently perfect? That’s an odd word choice…”
“I am in the car and about to experience a full day in a new city, , so I feel that I deserve to use whatever words strike my fancy at a moment’s notice. I am feeling whimsical and robust.”
“Whimsical? Robust? Celeste, what is going on?”
“Sexual tension levels are at an all-time high, and there are linguistic repercussions!” she shouted.
“Oh my God.”
