{Teaser Tuesday} Double Clutch by Liz Reinhardt

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!

Synopsis:


What happens when you fall in love with the perfect guy... twice... in one day?

Brenna Blixen spent her freshman year homeschooling in Denmark; now that she’s back in the States, she’s determined to make her sophomore year unforgettable. And by unforgettable, she imagined awesome classes, fun friendships, and maybe a little romance.

What she got was a whole lot of romance, and all at once.

The same day that dark, brooding Saxon Maclean charmed her with his killer good looks and whip-smart wit, Jake Kelly stole her breath away with his heart-wrenching smile and intelligent, thoughtful focus.

But Saxon is a proud player who makes it clear that he doesn’t know why he can’t get Brenna off of his mind and out of his system, and Jake’s sweet and humble attitude hides a secret past life that might be more darker and more complex than Brenna’s willing to handle.

Complicating the matter is the fact that Saxon and Jake were once best friends and are now arch-enemies... and the more Brenna finds out about their connection to each other, the more intrigued and worried she becomes.

Between keeping the peace with her lovingly over-protective parents, designing t-shirts for her high school’s rising punk band, keeping up her grades in both academic and technical high school, and running the track like a maniac, Brenna has enough to worry about with out juggling two guys who make her heart thud and drive her crazy all at once.

She has to make a choice. But how can she when giving her heart to one of them might mean breaking the other’s?

My Teaser:

Saxon winked at me and pulled his chair over so our shoulders bumped. He wore cologne. I had smelled guys' cologne a million times before, but whatever he wore made me want to bury my head in his chest and take long, deep breaths until my lungs couldn't take it anymore.

  1. Lol @ whatever he wore made me want to bury my head in his chest! I feel like that about book boys on a daily basis, what is it that makes reading about scent so darn sexy? As soon as an author mentions it, I'm hooked! Adding this one to my TBR! I'm a new follower by the way, Yippee skippy!

  2. It's kind of hard to feel sorry for someone who has two terrific guys to choose from! But I'm curious about Jake's dark past life, and I'm wondering if Saxon (the "proud player") is really a good guy. Sounds like an intriguing story.
    My teaser this week is from Never Trust a Pretty Wolf.
