Teaser Tuesday 106: Whisper Falls

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 book or recent read.
* Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere in the book.
* 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 and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

Whisper Falls is the third book in Toni Blake's "Destiny" series. I've just started this one, so am not too far along in it yet. Here's a little teaser peeking a little ahead of where I am.

"Well, if you're so sure you want him," Rachel said, looking as if she couldn't quite believe she was actually suggesting this, "why aren't you making a move?"

"Because he didn't," Tessa explained. "That's kind of like getting turned down—without having to get turned down. Saves the embarrassment."

(pg 100)

Hate to say it, but I think she has a point.


Welcome to Destiny, Ohio - where coming home means finding your true heart and maybe even your true love

Tessa Sheridan came crawling back to her quaint hometown of Destiny after her big-city interior design career crumbled. Now not only must she struggle to make ends meet, but she has to contend with a biker next door and the roar of Harleys shattering the serenity of her cabin in the woods by Whisper Falls. Worse still, her sexy, bad boy neighbor makes her feel breathless and weak—and shy, petite Tessa knows what a major mistake it would be to get involved with someone so...dangerous.

They say that former teen rebel Lucky Romo has a dark, secret past—that he's trouble with a capital "T." Still, Tessa feels all tingly when she sees how well he fills out a pair of tight jeans. And when Lucky invites her into his world, she knows the intense heat sparking between them could lead her somewhere wild and wonderful...and, yes, dangerous!

She does have a point but maybe he didn't make a move for the same reason she didn't.

Cute! Here is my teaser for this week.

Heather said...

Nah, I think he had "other" reasons for not making a move, hehe. Thanks for visiting! ;)

Heather said...

Beth: Thank you, and thanks for visiting!

Alice Audrey said...

Yeah, then ten years later when he's already got someone else she'll find out he was interested but not sure he should make a move.

Heather said...

Alice: That is certainly a consequence of not acting, though I doubt I would have any more confidence to do so than Tessa. :-\

Shelley Munro said...
