Teaser Tuesday: The Luxe

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!
My Teaser:

This was not the heart-stopping touch that she had been waiting for all evening, and it didn’t help especially that his style of kissing was akin to mashing one face against another. Her whole body went slack with the disappointment.

  10. Hmmm this guy needs a lesson in 101 Passionate Kissing this Ain't. I really like the billowing effect of the girl's gown.

    Interesting and different... Mine is on the Ex Boyfriend's handbook.... a funny male version of Brigit Jones Diary.... minus the weight percentile ;P

  12. The cover, the gown, is absolutely GORGEOUS. Woo! Haha, mashing kisses. Yup, been there, done that.

    I'm gonna read LJ Smith's The Strange Power (book 1 in the Dark Visions trilogy). Its first 2 lines:

    You don't invite the local witch to parties. No matter how beautiful she is.

  14. Hi Emma,

    The sort of book I would use a filler between more substantial reads.

    The teaser lines were great and like just about everyone else, I love the cover art
