Teaser Tuesday 14


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 read a few days ago and I loved it. It is a New Adult novel Left Drowning by Jessica Park. It will be released on 16 July and I was lucky enough to get an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. If you liked the my teaser, make sure you check my blog some time next week for my review of the book. Btw, I really love the cover of the UK edition, so it is the one I am using in my post.

"I feel it brewing furiously beneath the surface of our love: the looming promise of an inevitable, destructive storm.
I hope he will reach for me then.
I am going to fight with everything that I am to save him and to save us, but I won't be able to do it alone."

Left Drowning by Jessica Park 

What does it take to rise from life’s depths, swim against the current, and breathe?

Weighted down by the loss of her parents, Blythe McGuire struggles to keep her head above water as she trudges through her last year at Matthews College. Then a chance meeting sends Blythe crashing into something she doesn’t expect—an undeniable attraction to a dark-haired senior named Chris Shepherd, whose past may be even more complicated than her own. As their relationship deepens, Chris pulls Blythe out of the stupor she’s been in since the night a fire took half her family. She begins to heal, and even, haltingly, to love this guy who helps her find new paths to pleasure and self-discovery. But as Blythe moves into calmer waters, she realizes Chris is the one still strangled by his family’s traumatic history. As dark currents threaten to pull him under, Blythe may be the only person who can keep him from drowning.

  9. Someone once told me that it takes two to make a relationship work, it takes two to keep it together, and two to save it from dying. I hope he's there when it's time.
