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

Bad to the Bone (WVMP Radio, #2)

TURN ON. TUNE IN. DROP DEAD.
If you're just joining us, welcome to radio station WVMP, "The Lifeblood of Rock'n'Roll." Con-artist-turned-station-owner Ciara Griffin manages an on-air staff of off-the-wall DJs — including her new boyfriend Shane McAllister — who really sink their teeth into the music of their "Life Time" (the era in which they became vampires). It's Ciara's job to keep the undead rocking, the ratings rolling, and the fan base alive — without missing a beat.
For Halloween, WVMP is throwing a bash sure to raise the dead. They've got cool tunes, hot costumes, killer cocktails — what could go wrong? Well, for starters, a religious firebrand ranting against the evils of the occult preempts the station's midnight broadcast. Then, when Ciara tracks down the illegal transmission, the broadcast tower is guarded by what appears to be...a canine vampire? And behind it all is a group of self-righteous radicals who think vampires suck (and are willing to stake their lives on it).
Now Ciara must protect the station while struggling with her own murky relationship issues, her best friend's unlikely romance with a fledgling vampire, and the nature of her mysterious anti-holy powers. To make it to New Year's in one piece, she'll need to learn a few new tricks....

My Teasers:

"People speak of 'emotional roller coasters' as if they're a bad thing, but those people are on the part of 
 the roller coaster that makes you throw up, not the part that makes your blood sing and your heart leap
 into your throat, the part that makes you smile so hard your cheeks hurt."

Paperback, 384 pages

  2. Great teaser! I loved the world Jeri Smith-Ready created in her Shade series so much that I've been thinking about checking out her adult books even though I normally don't read vampire books. Do you find this world as fascinating as the one she created for her YA series? My teaser is from Angelfall by Susan Ee, here
