  • Synopsis:

    She’s got it bad, and he ain’t good — he’s in her garage?

    Gonna have to face it: Jody’s addicted to Jackson Gatlin, frontman of The Regulators, and after her best bud Mac scores tickets, she’s front and center at his sold-out concert. But when she gets mashed in the moshpit, loses her precious moon rock, and bodysurfs backstage, she ends up with more than a mild concussion to deal with. By the next morning, the strung-out rock star is coming down in her garage. Jody — oops — kind of kidnapped him. By accident. And now he doesn’t want to leave.

    It’s a rock-star abduction worthy of an MTV reality series . . . but who got punk’d?!

    “Don’t Dream It, Be It,” he says.  Then he;s gone.  Down and down and down.  The tray of drinks falls to the pavement.  Our foot soles thump down the street.  My screams.  My fault.  I feel the rush of tears coming, like water surging up a broken pipe, but Mac sees it, too, and kneels down before me, placing one black-fingernailed hand on my knee.

  • “OK, maybe alochol’s not the best idea,” he says in his serious voice.  “It’s OK, come here.” I don’t link Mac’s serious voice.  He sounds like a doctor or something.  A doctor with spiky black hair with a shock of magpie blue flashed through one side.  It smells like lemons, and hugging him is like hugging a warm summer tree.

    I hope that you enjoyed this week’s teaser.  What do you have to share this Teaser Tuesday?
