We have two teasers for Week’s Teaser Tuesday:

New York to Dallas (In Death Series #33) by J. D. Robb: Book Cover

Synopsis:

In the locker room Eve tied on the hard black uniform shoes. She hated them — always had — but regulation was regulation. She pushed off the bench, then reached for her uniform cap. Turning to the mirror, she fixed it squarely on her head.

She could see herself as she’d been a dozen years before, green as spring, with a shine on her shield and on those damned hard black shoes.

A cop, then and now, without any question, any hesitation, over what she was meant to be. Had to be. She’d thought she’d known, but she hadn’t known, really hadn’t begun to know what she would see and do, what she would learn and come to accept. What she would live through and live with.

A lot of corners turned, she thought, and one sharp, jagged corner had been turned the moment she’d stepped into apartment 303 on 258 Murray one sweltering day in late September, barely six weeks after she’d graduated from the Academy.

She remembered the fear, the coppery smear of it in her throat, and she remembered the horror like a red haze.

Lisa’s Teaser Page 195:

“She’s not peeling off the cash in the best stores,” Bree commented,”but if you ask me she’s not paying for class.  Her taste leans towards tacky.”

“Shoes,” Eve muttered.  “Had to be.  Women always go for the shoes, especially if trying to walk in them makes you feet cry like a baby.”

Dragonlance: Dark Heart (Meetings Sextet #3) by Tina Daniell: Book CoverSynopsis:

Obsession

At long last, the story of the beautiful dark-hearted Kitiara Uth Matar. This compelling novel tells the story of the birth of her twin brothers, the warrior Caramon and the frail mage Raistlin, and Kit’s admirable role in their upbringing.

But her youthful mercenary deeds and increasing fascination with evil throw her into the company of a roguish stranger and band of adventurers whose fates are intermingled with her own. Haunted by the memory of her Solamnic father, she hunts him ceaselessly.

Tina Daniell’s first novel brings to life this remarkable warrior-woman, whose credo of “the sword is truth” becomes her triumph and downfall.

David’s Teaser Page 119

Kitiara had a dreamless night.  When her eyes fluttered open,she stretched and yawned.  Then, with a start, Kit realized the sun was bright in her eyes and she jumped up, clutching the blanket to herself, embarrassed.

What’s the last book you were really EXCITED to read?

And, were you excited about it in advance? Or did the excitement bloom while you were reading it?

Are there any books you’re excited about right NOW?

I love this question and I have two answer really one YA book and another one.  So let’s get down to it.  Here are the books:

Lola and the Boy Next DoorNew York to Dallas (In Death Series #33)

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

New York to Dallas by J.D. Robb

I was super excited to read Lola and the Boy Next Door because I loved Anna and the French Kiss (click for review), it was just a great book – not just well written but grabbed and kept my attention.  Honestly, I couldn’t put it down.  While I really enjoyed Lola and the Boy Next Door, it did not top Anna and the French Kiss for me.  I know a lot of people loved Lola more but not me.  The writing style and the way the story unfolds is wonderful!

The other books that I was super excited about is New York to Dallas.  This is the first book in this series that does not include In Death in the title.  I love this exploration of relationships. Rourke and Eve are just amazing!  Each book they learn more about how they work together in their relationship and with others.  I was CRAZY excited to get an ARC of this and I am reading it right now.  It has been a busy week so I have not had a much time as I would like to read it.

What about you?
