It's Teaser Tuesday! Teaser Tuesday is when I pick up one of my latest reads, choose a random page, and share two terrific teasers from it with all of you. So strap on your seat-belts & prepare yourself for teasers that are sure to blow you away!
This week's teasers come from Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick. Black Ice is a standalone YA romance thriller, set in the mountains of Wyoming.
Without further ado, here are the teasers:
Teaser #1: 'Defiance was the only way she knew to fight back. She'd wept behind locked doors when she quiet ballet, but she had to hurt them back. They didn't get to pick and choose pieces of her to love.
Either she was theirs unconditionally, or they lost her completely. That was her deal. At eighteen, her resolve was steel-like.'
Teaser #2: 'She screamed, over and over inside herself. She screamed while the pressure built, sweeping her toward the edge of death.
He didn't want photographs. He wanted to kill her.
She would not let this horrible place be her last memory. Closing her eyes, she went away, into the darkness.'
That second teaser certainly sent a chill down my spine! Black Ice includes many thriller elements, and definitely is a 'keep you on your toes' kind of read.
What do you think of the teasers? Are you excited to read Black Ice? Let me know below!
About the book:
'Sometimes danger is hard to see... until it’s too late.
Britt Pfeiffer has trained to backpack the Teton Range, but she isn't prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two very handsome occupants—but these men are fugitives, and they take her hostage.
In exchange for her life, Britt agrees to guide the men off the mountain. As they set off, Britt knows she must stay alive long enough for Calvin to find her. The task is made even more complicated when Britt finds chilling evidence of a series of murders that have taken place there... and in uncovering this, she may become the killer’s next target.
But nothing is as it seems in the mountains, and everyone is keeping secrets, including Mason, one of her kidnappers. His kindness is confusing Britt.
Is he an enemy? Or an ally?
BLACK ICE is New York Times bestselling author Becca Fitzpatrick’s riveting romantic thriller set against the treacherous backdrop of the mountains of Wyoming.
