Teaser Tuesday 27


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.

My teaser this week comes from Unbound by Cara McKenna. I just finished an ARC of this book and even though it is not my usual type of book, I really liked it. It is an erotic romance set in the Scottish Highlands dealing with some serious psychological issues related to sexual preferences, addiction, body image and perception. The writing was lyrical and emotional, but some elements of the story did push my boundaries. I am still thinking this book through and I will be writing my review shortly.

Here is the teaser itself: 

"He'd make tea.
He'd make conversation. And though he'd likely make an arse of himself, he'd bloody well make a fucking effort."

Unbound by Cara McKenna

Goodreads blurb:

She set out to find herself, and discovered the darker side of desire.

Merry’s lost a lot recently—first her mother, then close to a hundred pounds. Feeling adrift, she strikes out in search of perspective. A three-week hike through the Scottish Highlands was supposed to challenge her new body and refocus her priorities, but when disaster strikes, she’s forced to seek refuge in the remote home of a brooding, handsome stranger…

Rob exiled himself to the Highlands years ago, desperate to escape his own self-destruction. Haunted by regrets, he avoids human contact at all costs…but when Merry turns up injured, he can’t very well run her off. And as he nurses her back to health, Rob can’t resist his guest’s sweet demeanor—or her flirtatious advances. The igniting passion between them rouses a secret appetite Rob has long struggled to keep hidden. But Merry craves nothing more than to help Rob surrender to his desires, and the journey draws the lovers into an entirely different kind of wilderness.

    1. There were a few funny lines in the book but overall it was rather dramatic and a bit dark.

  3. I will have to read your review. Psychological issues about sexual pref may not be appealing. Happy Tuesday. Here are my teasers. http://reviewbooksandmore.com/2013/10/01/tuesday-teasers-10113/ or http://andreareadsandreviews.blogspot.com/2013/10/tuesday-teasers-10113.html
