*Teaser Tuesday* Cora Carmack's Losing It

*This meme is brought to you by MizB at Should Be Reading*

Let me tell you, I like nothing better than a good teaser! It's the intrigue, the butterflies, the quickening breath of excitement. It's the, "I MUST DROP EVERYTHING AND GET MY HANDS ON THIS BOOK" feeling that I love. So, let me share....enjoy...and hope you find something that piques your interest.

Here's how to play:
* 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!

“Sorry. Got carried away.”

Those were exactly the right words. Carried away. I had never been so caught up in another person before. I’d never been so… out of control. It at once excited and terrified me.

His face appeared before mine, and I tried to keep my expression neutral. His hand slid out of my shirt, and I shivered, my skin mourning the loss.

I laughed, but inside I was giving the middle finger to reason. It had ruled me long enough.

You like that? I like that.....

I love love love this book to pieces. I read this a while ago, but with Cora’s latest update regarding Cade’s story (Book 2), I just HAD to revisit! If you haven’t read this yet, please do! It’s one of the best examples of the New Adult genre to date. And guess what? It's coming out in paperback on February 26th!

And while you’re here, check out this teaser from Cade’s book, Faking It.

Two thoughts crossed my mind—one involved a lot of yelling.

I chose the other, and used the hand I was holding to tug her forward into my arms. Her chest pressed into mine, and her lips were millimeters from my own. She exhaled sharply, and I could taste the sweetness of her breath on the air. I saw in her eyes the moment she knew she was wrong, but I wasn’t done proving it to her.

I crushed my mouth to hers.

She gasped, and I slipped my tongue into her mouth. She stayed there for a few seconds, her hands still at her sides, then I felt the tentative touch of her hand against my side, and that was all the permission I needed to continue. I threaded a hand through her hair and wrapped the other around her waist. I walked her backward until her back hit the wall. Her other hand came to my waist, and her fingers pressed deeper into my skin. Her lips were soft and full underneath mine, and I eased up enough to taste them. I tried to kiss her softly. I did, but there was something about her that made me desperate, and I kissed her harder.

Be sure to follow Cora on Facebook if you want more teasers! She’ll be posting another upon hitting 1,500 Likes! GOGO! to Facebook!

Intrigued yet? Will you be reading or have you already read Losing It?

all the best, dear readers!
