Teaser Tuesday 13


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
• 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.

My teaser this week comes from a book I am actually currently reading. It is Surviving Raine by Shay Savage. I have come to middle so far I absolutely love it. It is another romance (with some survival adventure thrown in) told from a male POV, after I recently read Tangled by Emma Chase. This one is really dramatic from what I can tell so far and I really liked both the hero and the heroine.

"For one, it wasn't just me I needed to look after. There was the annoying, questioning, tiny little piece of seriously feminine, soft, brown-eyed, doesn't-take-my-shit, fucking beautiful young woman who didn't stand a chance on her own that I needed to protect."

Surviving Raine by Shay Savage 

As the captain of a schooner catering to the elite on the Caribbean Seas, Sebastian Stark does his best to avoid any human encounters. Interacting with people isn’t his thing, and he prefers the company of a bottle of vodka, a shot glass, and maybe a whore. There’s no doubt he’s hiding from a checkered past, but he does well keeping everything to himself…

…until the night his schooner capsizes, and he’s stuck on a life raft with one of the passengers.

Raine’s young, she’s cute, and Bastian would probably be into her if he wasn’t suffering from alcohol withdrawal. As the days pass, DTs, starvation, and dehydration become the norm. Even the most closed person starts to open up when he thinks he’s going to die, but when she realizes their traumatic pasts are connected, it’s no longer the elements that have Bastian concerned.

He has no idea how he’s going to Survive Raine.

  3. Awesome! This one is definitely going on my list...and not just because the female character is named "Raine"...lol.


  4. Hmm not sure about the word 'whore' in the synopsis (that's a big no go word for me!) but I loved the teaser and male POVs for romance books are seriously sexy, lol. The storyline, but not the tone, reminds me of 'On The Island' by Tracey Garvis Graves which I quite enjoyed. (I'm looking forward to reading her next book Covet.)

    1. Sebastian does have a rather filthy mouth (or mind, to be correct) but don't let that stop you from picking up this book. I am almost 80% done and it is really deep and emotional.
      I still haven't read On the Island, I am hesitant because of the age difference but I have it in my TBR list :)

  5. Wow that is quite the teaser!


  6. Great description of his perception of the young woman! I think I'd enjoy the writing in this book.
    My Teaser is from ORPHAN TRAIN.
