Teaser Tuesday 23


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.

I just finished the second book in The Artists Trilogy by Karina Halle, Shooting Scars, so my teaser this week will be from it. I liked this book even more than the first one,  Sins and Needles. It is very action packed and still exploring the meaning of good and bad.

I have picked a longer excerpt this time but I really wanted to show more of the author's style. What I like about my teaser is that it is as much about Camden (I am Team Camden in this series) as it is about Ellie. 

"Camden. He was sleeping on his back, his glasses still on, lips parted. He was like a fragment from dream, a faded portrait of masculinity, heart and ink. My heart, that beating organ that had been so elusive to me as of late, thumped loudly n my chest as I gazed at him, stirring me awake. How could I have been so careless with him?"

Sometimes the right choice can be the deadliest.

When Ellie Watt made the ultimate sacrifice for Camden McQueen, she never thought it would be easy. But walking away with her ex-lover, Javier Bernal, in order to ensure Camden’s safety has brought a whole new set of dangers. With Javier’s plans for Ellie growing more secretive by the moment, Ellie must find a way to stay ahead of the game before her past swallows her whole.

Meanwhile, Camden’s new life is short-lived. Fueled by revenge and pursued by authorities, he teams up with an unlikely partner in order to save Ellie. But as Camden toes the line between love and retribution, he realizes that in order to get back the woman he loves, he may have to lose himself in the process. He might just turn into the very man he’s hunting.

Told in dual POV from Camden and Ellie.

    1. I fully understand you. They are not easily lovable characters but I can recommend that you read the remaining books in the series. Ellie, Camden and Javier have much more to show of themselves.
