Teaser Tuesday - Lengths by Liz Reinhardt and Steph Campbell

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 (2) “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!


And, what am I reading right now?  



Teaser (from the page I'm on right now):  "Clean, I promise.  My grandmother has all these old fashioned ideas about guys and handkerchiefs."



Jury is still out on whether I'm enjoying it or not, so I'll post a blurb:


Nineteen-year-old Whit Conrad leaves her conservative Pennsylvania home for sunny California, looking for independence, a fresh start, and a place to stash her grief. She promptly finds a job at a tattoo parlor, a craptastic first apartment, and one friend—Ryan—who is a little less friend, a little more benefits.

Deo Beckett is a soulful surfer with a passion for tattoos and beautiful women. On the eve of his twenty-second birthday, he finds himself living with his grandfather, recently unemployed, and seriously adrift. He doesn’t know much about what he wants out of life, but he does know his current situation isn’t cutting it.

When Deo meets Whit, she’s all sexy makeup and fierce, smart-ass fun. It doesn’t take him long to see past her tough shell. And when he gets a good look at what’s under all the superficial stuff that usually gets his attention, it leaves Deo wondering if there might be more to life than living fast and free.

Too bad Whit has a past she doesn’t plan on sharing—no matter how hot Deo is. She might want him, but she knows better than to let her guard down.

Deo falls for Whit, and falls hard. But everything about her, down to that mysterious tattoo and the way she thrashes in her sleep, tells him that the girl he loves is hiding something. And the more he pushes for answers, the more Whit pulls away.

Having your guard up is one thing, but are the lengths Whit goes to to protect her secret worth throwing away the second chance she has at happiness with Deo?
 
LENGTHS is a Contemporary New Adult Romance.

  1. I just received "Ready Player One" last night. I know nothing about this one...

    Page 152: "They bowed in unison. Aech and Art3mis returned the bow, and I quickly followed suit."

  5. Hm, the blurb sounds like it has potential. I'm interested to hear what you think of it when you finish.

    1. Yeah, it sounds good, and I'm still reading it, but I just haven't fallen in love with the characters so far. Maybe it's just me, though. I know quite a few people who absolutely love the characters.
