Teaser Tuesday #42

TEASER

Hey everyone, and welcome back to my blog. Today’s post is actually a super special installment of Teaser Tuesday since it is the first teaser of 2018! Insane, right? I had a lot of fun doing these throughout 2017 that I just NEEDED to bring them back for 2018. And to start off the year, I am re-reading an amazing, alien-filled novel with a swoon-worthy hottie in it named Daemon Black! Any guesses? Let’s get started!

Shaking his head, he unfolded the note,much to my – and I’m sure, to Lesa and Carissa’s – horror. I wanted to die as I watched those vibrant eyes quickly scan the note. I knew when he got to my part, because his dark brows shot up his forehead.
He grinned, used his mouth to pop off the cap of his pen, and wrote something on the page. Groaning, I glanced at Lesa and Carissa. Lesa’s mouth was hanging open and Carissa’s cheeks matched mine. God, he was taking enough time.

Yup, another Lux novel featuring THE smoking hot (literally) Daemon Black. If you remember last week’s Teaser Tuesday, I posted a teaser of Obsidian. Now, I am just over halfway through the sequel and really loving it! It has such a good pace and I already know that there are so many exciting scenes ahead. My re-read of this series has been sooooo enjoyable so far and both a great way to bring reading back into my life and enjoy my winter break.

Onyx (Lux, #2)Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there’s this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that’s possible. Against all common sense, I’m falling for Daemon. Hard.

But then everything changes…

I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…

And that’s it for today! Let me know what you are currently reading in the comments. I would love to know! And don’t forget to like and follow my blog to stay up to date with all of my future posts!

Teaser Tuesday #39

TEASER

Hey everyone, and welcome back for another Teaser Tuesday! These are my absolute favorite posts and it sucks how late I am writing this. But, if there is anything you should know about me, it’s that I am horrible at time management. And, usually blogging gets kicked back to the end of my night. So, be prepared for some later posts! But, I am currently reading a super cool book with a spooky cover that I am excited to share with you today!

As though sensing me watching, Chet turned his eyes toward mine. We held that gaze for no longer than three or four seconds, but in that moment, it felt much, much longer. I dropped my eyes to his mouth, which had more color from the repeated pressure of kissing, the same way slapped skin deepens with blood. Chet watched me back, a strange, wishful tension in his eyes. It put me on alert.

I absolutely adored the first two books in Becca Fitzpatrick’s Hush, Hush series, so when I saw this one at a used book sale for a really reasonable price, I took advantage of it. I’ve been reading this for only 3 days now and I am flying through it. I only have about an hour, two if I’m lucky, to read, so it’s great wen I pick up a really enjoyable book! The cover of this story is super creepy, and gives me total Halloween vibes. Although the actual story doesn’t match that vibe, I still CANNOT wait to see how it ends!

Dangerous LiesA teen is forced to make a fresh start after witnessing a violent crime—but love and danger find her anyway in this novel from Becca Fitzpatrick, the New York Times bestselling author of the Hush, Hush saga.

Stella Gordon is not her real name. Thunder Basin, Nebraska, is not her real home. This is not her real life.

After witnessing a lethal crime, Stella Gordon is sent to the middle of nowhere for her own safety before she testifies against the man she saw kill her mother’s drug dealer.

But Stella was about to start her senior year with the boyfriend she loves. How can she be pulled away from the only life she knows and expected to start a new one in Nebraska? Stella chafes at her protection and is rude to everyone she meets. She’s not planning on staying long, so why be friendly? Then she meets Chet Falconer and it becomes harder to keep her guard up, even as her guilt about having to lie to him grows.

As Stella starts to feel safer, the real threat to her life increases—because her enemies are actually closer than she thinks…
