Teaser Tuesday: Dark Lover

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:




Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two "teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


This week my teaser comes from Dark Lover,  J.R. Ward's first book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. This is from page 125:


       Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 1)God, she needed to take another shot at the last couple of days. If she could only go back forty-eight hours, back to when she was sitting at her desk with Dick doing his leering-boss routine.
     She'd do two things differently. She'd order a cab instead of walking home, so she never met up with Billy Riddle. And the instant she went into her apartment, she'd pack some clothes and go to a motel. So when this leather-clad, drug-lord lothario came looking for her she wouldn't have been found.

  1. What a wonderful Teaser! I do not know JR Ward or Black Dagger Brotherhood series (what a gorgeous name for a series too) but this snippet well and truly can be called a teaser. It makes me want to read it.

    Thank you for visiting my teaser ( from Henry James, The Turn of the Screw). This whole Teaser business is so fun don't you think? Because it really highlights the variety of what everyone is reading.
