Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
This week's teaser is from In the Band by Jean Haus. I posted my review for this yesterday, but I just wanted to share one of my favorite lines from this book. It's seriously good and if you liked Easy by Tammara Webber I definitely recommend this one.
“Sex can be lust, but it can be so much more when trust and respect and affection are layered into it." His lashes lower and a wet finger traces my lips. "I once had enough lust to last a life time." A callused palm presses against my cheek. Dark eyes burn into mine. Burn into me and sear me with their heat. "I want the more," he says huskily before his lips cover mine in a searching kiss.”
Synopsis of In the Band:
When family problems push Riley Middleton into giving up a percussion scholarship in another state and attending college from home, her friends push her to try out for a local rock band. Of course, Riley makes the band. She rules at the drums.
Riley soon finds out rock bands have a different dynamic than marching bands, especially when each of her male band mates has a major ego and is a major player. Two of them relentlessly flirt with her. The other—a dark, sexy rock god she can’t help being attracted to— is a total jerk and pushes her to quit. She becomes determined to ignore his rudeness and his hotness. Even if she was interested in jerks, a hook up would probably get her booted out of the ego-ridden band, and playing keeps her sane. Behind the drums, the world and its troubles evaporate.
If she wants to stay in the band, Riley needs to ignore the growing sparks between her and her band enemy. But as she gets to know the man behind the stage persona, ignoring him proves to be more difficult than flowing through a time sig shift.
