Teaser Tuesday 4200:00
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here are the rules:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• Be careful not the include spoilers!
• Share the title & author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
I have modified them slightly for my Teasers. It will not be two sentences from a random page but two, usually more, sentences from the pages I have read so far that have struck me as most interesting, original or that I just happen to like a lot.
This week's teaser comes from Otherwise Occupied by Shay Savage. It's the second book in her Evan Arden series and it's rather a suspense thriller involving a mob hitman and his gradual loss of sanity. It's the middle book in the series and although it doesn't have the hot romance of the novella Otherwise Alone, it does portray Evan Arden a complex, tortured hero. It will be continuing with the final book in the series, Otherwise Unharmed, right away.
"I don't think anything I have to offer a woman is in her best interest. Seriously, you've got a better idea of how...of what I've...of what happened. How could I ever try to explain that to a date?"
Otherwise Occupied - Shay Savage
