Teaser Tuesday: Week 100

ShouldBeReadingTeaser 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!

13092528This week’s teaser comes from “The Savage Blue (Vicious Deep #2)” by Zoraida Cordova (USAGI):

Kurt takes one step closer.  Whatever he’s going to say is interrupted by blue and purple blurs.

It’s the Urchin Brothers, pulling sails and tying ropes to create a bit of shade. When they stop running around, you can see their true shapes. Their almond-shaped eyes are big  and black, like their gums, which freaked me out when Blue woke me up this morning. True to their name, the Urchin Brothers have spiky heads that are surprisingly soft to the touch.

Note: don’t mess with an urchin’s head of hair, either.

Dance of the Red DeathThis week’s teaser comes from Dance of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin (ASHLEIGH):

“I’m not complaining,” he says. “It’s nice, sitting here with you. Much warmer.” I shift to see if his expression is as sincere as his voice sounds, and our faces are so close. I should turn away, but I don’t.

I kiss him.

An owl hoots somewhere in the trees above us. Elliott twists so that we’re lying on the ground. For a brief moment, all I can think is that it’s different than it’s been with him before. He raises my chin with his hand, and he’s frustratingly gentle, as if he wants this moment to go on and on. And it does. It’s a very long time before I pull back to take a ragged breath.

“We have to find a way to get some privacy,” he whispers. “Soon.”
