Welcome back to the Tuesday Tease!
I’m still waiting on edits for TOXIC Part Two so I’ve been keeping busy with edits for SOMEONE TO LOVE. Ack! I didn’t post a special tease this past week—please forgive! I swear that book is so freaking hot I’m afraid to touch it half the time. Honestly, if Marshall offends you in the least, you’ll want to steer clear, because my new male MC, Cruise, brings the heat in a big way. It’s definitely not young adult.
As for TOXIC 2 I’m expecting it to land in my hands any minute now and when it does I’ll polish around the clock and begin my marathon read-thrus. I really hope I’ll get this book to you exceptionally soon. I long to give you the complete TOXIC experience!
Off to the teasers!!
(Skyla with Logan and Gage)
We drive through miles of fresh paved asphalt—the black tongue of Paragon unspooling itself for an eternity. It feels like this could easily be last year. That I had just arrived on the island and started going out with Logan—that Gage was here posturing with his pent up feelings and a poem at the ready, warm in his pocket. It’s funny how life comes full circle sometimes. Funny thing is, it’s not the beginning, it very much feels like the end of a very long season in my life. It breaks my heart just to think about it.
(Skyla, Logan, Brielle, and Gage)
Logan casts a glance from me to Gage with a look that could transform butter knives into lethal weapons. Not even the deafening waves can penetrate the silence.
“Did I say something wrong?” Bree knots up her lips trying to decipher what the deal is.
Hell if I know. Gage is a liar, and Logan is the thief that took off with my heart—jammed a war between the two of us because it was the only logical solution. Nothing ever makes sense on Paragon.
(Lizbeth and Marshall talk about the party he’s going to throw)
“I can hardly wait.” Mom sags into him dreamily as if he had offered to inseminate her himself. “Demetri sort of opened the season and now you’ll usher us out.”
“In style. This is no bikini romp by the pool. Prepare to be dazzled. The menu will astound you.” He washes his eyes over me as if I were the main course. It’s a betrothal ceremony, Skyla. A coming out of sorts to Sector society. And you will dazzle them all, of this you can be certain.
A brief introduction to my New Adult book:
SOMEONE TO LOVE
What happens when two people who don’t believe in love happen to fall madly, deeply into the most beautiful relationship they could ever imagine? A train wreck.
Twenty-year old Kendall Jordan devises a seat of the pants plan to “play the player.”
When Kendall spots gorgeous Cruise Elton from across the room, something in her burns to have him. There’s only one problem; Cruise likes the ladies, a lot, and Kendall has never shared so much as a decent kiss with a guy.
Kendall has long since come to discover that love is an illusion that never lasts and Cruise couldn’t agree more. So when Kendall proposes that Cruise tutor her in becoming a female version of himself, Garrison Universities own man-whore, he’s more than happy to comply. But when real feelings begin to emerge, and neither Kendall nor Cruise know how to classify them, everything they once thought they knew is redefined as they discover in one another, Someone to Love.
* The book alternates POV between Kendall and Cruise.
(Kendall and Cruise at a bar)
She frowns and scans the room. “I don’t know. I was thinking about having a fire sale with my virginity. You know, get it over with so I can start mishandling the boys at Garrison.” She gives a quick wink.
I shake my head at her. I think we both know she’s not that person—that she never really was. But maybe all she needs is one more push in the wrong direction to realize it. I just hope once she does she also realizes she might have feelings for me. Because what I’m feeling is too wonderfully large, too fucking fantastic too ever be one-sided.
“Body shots.” I pull my cheek back no smile. “Lesson for the day is letting some slopped up, drunk, virally hormone induced frat boy lick your stomach clean.” I try to hold back a laugh but my back shudders. If that doesn’t send her running for the hills I don’t know what will.
