Teaser Tuesday


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. It's actually pretty simple to do, and it's a wonderful way to get people in to new books!

  • 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!

My teaser from this week comes from The Van Alen Legacy, Book 4 in the Blue Bloods series by Melissa De La Cruz.



*Warning: There's a little more than two sentences in my teaser.*

"I can never leave," Dylan said. "You're stuck with me."
"Can I?" she asked, holding out her hand. She put it up against his, hoping. But she felt nothing. Air. He was smoke and mirrors. Air and light. A memory. A ghost.
He wasn't real. This wasn't real.
