Teaser Tuesday #1

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading 
and slightly altered by Coffee, Books & Lipgloss

Basically a CBL TEASER TUESDAY works like this
  • Grab your current read
  • Share 2 “teaser” sentences from a random page or a part you rather enjoyed and post it as a teaser.
  • 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!
  • As an option, you can give a short snippet of what you think so far... or not. That's optional.
  • Share the TITLE and AUTHOR too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser.

TEASER
*I'm aware I'm not following instructions because obviously these aren't just two sentences but this is all that I can work with for now.*

"Hey, Beanpole." He looked embarrased. "I've been looking for you."

"Doubtful." That felt good, I thought, and stood a little taller.

"Look, I'm sorry about earlier..."

"Sorry for ignoring me, or sorry for inviting me in the first place?"

"For acting weird. I was just surprised you even accepted, that's all."

"Oh, so you were just patronizing me. Thanks for clarifying."

"That's not what I meant. I'm glad you came, really." He lowered his head a few inches so that his eyes peered directly into mine. There was a glint in his green orbs that seemed to both flirt with me and beg my forgiveness, pretty-please-style, with a cherry on top. Damn, he was cute. But I was probably imagining the flirting part.

"Forget it." My pride caved instantly to my passion. "You don't need to apologize for anything."

"No, really, Skye." It surprised me to hear him say my real name. He looked into my eyes and - I kid not - we must have stood like that for fifteen seconds while the blur of the party circled around us. Crammed into the room like we were, our faces were mere inches apart. I couldn't blink, I couldn't speak... I don't think I even breathed.

He grabbed my hand and whispered, "Let's go somewhere where we can talk."

Just then someone yelled "flashlight tag!" and I turned to see Beth armed with two flashlights, pushing her way toward us through the dispersing crowd like a salmon swimming upstream. 

Craig dropped my hand and mumbled, "Later, okay?" as Beth tossed me one of the flashlights. Pulling Craig along behind her without a backward glance, she made for the door.

My Opinion So Far

This is the second Twisted Lit book I've read and so far I think I like this better than the first one, Tempestuous. This book has a different story and a different set of characters though, so it's okay if you happen to read this one before Tempestuous. I'm only 22% done with the book because of the new year's festivities but at this point, I can say that I like it. Skye's totally friendzoned so reading that part (the teaser) gave me a little bit of excitement. 

This book's a "modern-day spin on Shakespeare's Macbeth," and since I'm not quite familiar with Macbeth, I'll read up a bit so I'll somehow get the similarities. I didn't do that with Tempestuous but I enjoyed it. I imagine I'll enjoy Exposure twice as much if I actually get the references.
