Teaser Tuesday




Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others!
Make sure to share the title and the author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR piles.

This week's Teaser is from

Wicked Game (WVMP Radio, #1)

Wicked Game (WVMP Radio #1)
by Jeri Smith-Ready

LATE NIGHT RADIO YOU CAN SINK YOUR TEETH INTORecovering con artist Ciara Griffin is trying to live the straight life, even if it means finding a (shudder!) real job. She takes an internship at a local radio station, whose late-night time-warp format features 1940s blues, '60s psychedelia, '80s goth, and more, all with an uncannily authentic flair. Ciara soon discovers just how the DJs maintain their cred: they're vampires, stuck forever in the eras in which they were turned.

Ciara's first instinct, as always, is to cut and run. But communications giant Skywave wants to buy WVMP and turn it into just another hit-playing clone. Without the station — and the link it provides to their original Life Times — the vampires would "fade," becoming little more than mindless ghosts of the past. Suddenly a routine corporate takeover is a matter of life and undeath.

To boost ratings and save the lives of her strange new friends, Ciara rebrands the station as "WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock 'n' Roll." In the ultimate con, she hides the DJs' vampire nature in plain sight, disguising the bloody truth as a marketing gimmick. WVMP becomes the hottest thing around — next to Ciara's complicated affair with grunge vamp Shane McAllister. But the "gimmick" enrages a posse of ancient and powerful vampires who aren't so eager to be brought into the light. Soon the stakes are higher — and the perils graver — than any con game Ciara's ever played...

I'm taking part in the WVMP Read-Along, hosted by Fictish-Delish. I am so happy I'm doing this because this is a fabulous book!

This book is filled with TT-worthy quotes. I couldn't pick just one, so I've included two. One is funny and one is sexxxxxy!

Here are my Teasers:

"Yeah, yeah, feed on blood, okay, can't go out during the day, yada yada yada, super-seductive,
  whatever. Sounds like re-hashed cliches to me, warmed-over Anne Rice, but hey, I scarf those trendy
  vampire novels like they were heroin-soaked potato chips, so I'll play along for entertainment's sake."

"Shane closes his eyes and groans deep in his throat, a noise that embodies sex and death. His back
  arches and his fingers rake the carpet as if to pull it up like grass." 

Believe it or not, the second teaser is not what you think!

Hope you liked my Teasers. Be sure to leave a link so I can check your's out!
