Teaser Tuesday 42


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.

This week's teaser comes from Otherwise Occupied by Shay Savage. It's the second book in her Evan Arden series and it's rather a suspense thriller involving a mob hitman and his gradual loss of sanity. It's the middle book in the series and although it doesn't have the hot romance of the novella Otherwise Alone, it does portray Evan Arden a complex, tortured hero. It will be continuing with the final book in the series, Otherwise Unharmed, right away.

"I don't think anything I have to offer a woman is in her best interest. Seriously, you've got a better idea of how...of what I've...of what happened. How could I ever try to explain that to a date?"

Otherwise Occupied - Shay Savage

  1. Sounds good, we might look into this one. Here's ours: http://ourstack.blogspot.com/2014/01/teaser-tuesdays-3-today.html

  2. Never heard of this book before, now you got me really curious!
    Here's my TT and hope you have a lovely week :)

    1. This is really good series, the first one was a scorching hot novella, this one is more of a thriller and I am currently reading the final one which so far seems like a mixture of the two!

  3. Sounds good and I agree that it would be hard to explain to the date. http://bookloverslife.blogspot.ie/2014/01/teaser-tuesday-19.html

  4. I'm definitely curious about what happened that would be so difficult to explain to a date. Good teaser. My Teaser is from THINGS WE SET ON FIRE.

  5. I'm assuming this is the hitman talking? That would be a hard career to explain :) Fabulous teaser!

    My TT: http://thefictionenthusiast.blogspot.com/2014/01/teaser-tuesday-january-14th.html

    1. Yes, it's the hit man talking to his shrink in fact :) I still haven't reach the explanation (it's not in this book but in the next one) but I guess it will be pretty difficult for both of them.

  6. Sounds intriguing, must look into.


  7. Wasn't expecting a story like that. I wonder what it would be like to be the shrink hearing this....
