Teaser Tuesday 4502:15
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) or a few more “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• Be careful not the include spoilers!
This week's teaser comes from Jaded by Anne Calhoun. This is the second book in Walkers Ford series but it can be read as a standalone. It is a small town romance between a librarian (big city girl) and the local chief of police. It sounds cliche but I'm 40% done and so far it's nothing like it. This is my first book by Anne Calhoun and I'm really enjoying it.
I want to share two teasers this time - one for her and one from him. Enjoy!
"I'm a librarian. Nothing exciting happens to me." - Alana
"No expectations. Just take what she is giving you. Don't ask for more. Hope it what burns you. Not disappointment." - Chief Ridgeway
Jaded (Walkers Ford #2) - Anne Calhoun
They can’t hide from desire.
After life as a cop in Denver leaves him burned-out, Lucas Ridgeway returns to Walkers Ford, South Dakota, to serve as their chief of police. He’s hoping to start over with a clean slate and avoid any emotional entanglements—even after his next-door neighbor kisses him senseless. Alana is passionate, dedicated, and most importantly leaving town soon. So why not have some fun?
Alana Wentworth comes from a larger-than-life political family, yet all she wanted was to be a librarian. Then after an embarrassing marriage proposal from Mr. Not-For-Her, she jumps at the chance to live her dream for a few months. She wasn't supposed to get involved with the community—or sexy, troubled Lucas. But when the time comes for Alana to put Walkers Ford behind her, she’s not ready. And Lucas may not be ready for her to go .
