And now I have your attention, here’s my third #TeaserTenth sneak peak into Cornered (unedited).

Liv wiggled her pencil back and forth, meeting my eyes as I sat down. “I’m sorry I made assumptions about you.”

Sliding my pint onto the table beside me, I took a sip of the JD&C and sank back into my seat. “Okay,” I said, once the liquid had travelled to the spot I needed it to hit.

“It’s just …” She dropped her pencil down and flattened her palm atop her papers. “”Look, most guys, in my experience, only bother to spend time with a girl because they want to get into her knickers.”

As soon as she said it, my focus instantly dropped to where those knickers would hug, and my eyebrow twitched before I could stop it. “Okay,” I said again, because up until she mentioned them, I hadn’t even given them a thought. Well, not outside of my bedroom, anyway.

Hey, Dan’s only human werewolf, after all.

Cheers for stopping by. See you next month (I hope).

The rain had eased some during the night, but in its place, gale force wind battered my coat from all angles on my six a.m. run home.

Added to that, Sean’s words echoed around inside my head.

He’d caught me as I’d gone to jog down the stairs, his voice deep and serious as he’d said, “Next time you want to share Lia’s room, you better turn up with less alcohol inside you. Otherwise, I’ll be ignoring Jem’s request to leave you be and kicking your arse down to the sofa to kip. Are we clear?”

I’d had no choice but to nod—mostly because Sean’d looked like he wanted to shred my hide. Just another peg on the board of things pissing me off.

Working off my irritation, I pushed my muscles hard on my run, stretching out kinks caused by a night spent with Lia snoozing on my chest. She’d finally drooped there a little after three, and too knackered to move her, or myself, I’d managed to switch off enough to get some shut eye.

With the shitty start I’d already had to the morning, a part of me wished I’d just stayed asleep.

Yeah, all doesn’t seem to be going so well for Dan, eh?

My hand freezes mid-push into my bag. Mikey spins back, one eye narrowed on the huge glass panes, head tilted a little to the left.

I resume rapid-ramming shit into my pack—on autopilot, not even looking at what I’m grabbing—but when Mikey licks his lips, my attention clings to him for clues of what my crouched position doesn’t let me see.

Another lick of Mikey’s lips has me cramming in faster—it’s a nervous action, a trait of his, and my fingers work harder to tug the string tight at the bag’s neck. By the time I click the clasp secure, the tremors have kicked in, and the second Mikey drops down to the carpet tiles before me, I swing to face the storefront, hauling my ‘sack onto my back and over my arms as I squint for an opening to peer through.

“What’d you see?” I whisper when Mikey shuffles forward and crouches beside me. “Them?” I catch his jerky nods out the corner of my eye, mutter, “Shit,” beneath my breath as my fingers curl around the handle of my baseball bat.

We purposefully chose the little chemist. The one with less traffic—despite knowing we could have nabbed a tonne more stuff at the town centre’s store. Picking between extra painkillers and less chance of being killed had been easy. Should’ve known everything was a little too quiet here.

Whatcha think?

The rhythmic pounding from Kyle’s bedroom sent a twitch to the muscle just beneath my left eye.

Thud.

I grabbed my pillow and attempted death by self-asphyxiation.

Thud.

I guessed, if being completely honest, I could’ve ignored the incessant beat that I had to listen to on a daily, nightly—sometimes even hourly—basis … if not for the growls and the gasps and the screeches and—

With a groan, I flopped over onto my stomach and dug my right ear into the mattress, while plugging my left by squishing my forearm against it.

Thud, thud.

My Summer Reading List

This is a toughie to compose and mostly consists of books I already own but have yet to get to.

So, here are the top 5 books I hope to delve into during the following summer weeks.

1.  Simone Elkeles Perfect Chemistry

I read Wild Cards when it came out as an ARC and LOVED it and have been meaning to try more of her books since.

2. Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons

Seems ages since I read Article 5. Can’t wait to read on in this great dystopian.

3. Oaths of Blood by S.M. Reine

I really enjoyed the first in the Ascension series, and I have quite a few of the following titles. Just been waiting for some spare time to sit and read these ones back to back. 

FOURThrough the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi.

Man, I LOVED Perry and Roar. Why haven’t I had time to read on in this series? Who knows, but I plan to rectify that.

5. Brigid Kemmerer’s Sacrifice

Yeah, yeah, so theoretically, it’s not actually out this summer, but it’s no secret that the Elementals series is my favourite YA series to date, and I fully intend to do some begging for an early ARC as I can’t WAIT. I’m equal parts excited AND scared to discover what Ms Kemmerer is going to hit her Merrick Brothers with in this installment.

So, which titles are on your Summer Reading List?

Comment on the post then fill in the entry form for a chance to win my mini-giveaway.

And the prize(s)?

Well, up for grabs, I have two e-copies (=two winners) of Sibel Hodge’s The See-Through Leopard

From International Bestselling and Award Winning Author Sibel HodgeThe See-Through Leopard is an inspirational coming of age novel…

Most sixteen-year-old girls are obsessed with their looks, but Jazz Hooper’s obsessed for a different reason. After a car accident that kills her mum, Jazz is left with severe facial scars and retreats into a dark depression.

Fearing what will happen if Jazz doesn’t recover, her dad makes a drastic decision to move them from England to a game reserve in Kenya for a new start. And when Jazz finds an orphaned leopard cub, it sets off a chain of events that lead her on a two year journey of discovery, healing, and love.

“A percentage of the royalties from the sale of this book will be contributed to Panthera, a leading international conservation organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the world’s big cats, plus other wildlife conservation groups.” — Sibel Hodge, Author

“Compelling, inspiring, magical” — Ruth Harris, New York Times Bestselling Author
