Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the 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 SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Illustrated Temptations: NUTS by Alice Clayton

img_0006-0

I loved Simon! I loved Wallbanger and the rest of the Cocktail Series. I loved the Redhead Series! I love Alice Clayton! Always have and always will. 🙂 And now NUTS–the first book in The Hudson Valley Series is just really refreshingly good and overall a fantastic read. And yes, I LOVED it!

Hands down to Alice Clayton for always writing the best humorous and yet sexy-hawt books! The complexities of the characters are so well developed. I loved the banters, the funny exchanges, and all the innuendos are just spot on!

I totally can’t wait for the next book! What a great start to a new series!

For now, check out my pREVIEW and head on to Katiebird’s review after. 😉

Elena’s Picks: First Encounters… (#2)

Some of the scenes I enjoy the most in books are those ones where the two characters lay eyes on each other or get to talk for the first time. I love seeing their emotions, what goes through their mind when they stare at the other person or try not to do so, sometimes failing miserably. It’s also interesting to see how their relationship progresses, since that very first encounter…

Also, if the first meeting between the characters is well written, the interest of the reader is definitely piqued, and they’ll want to keep reading the story to see how things turn out…

In THIS post I shared with you some of this kind of scenes, taken from books I love. And here are more first encounters that I find absolutely intriguing and beautiful, especially considering what happens next… 😉

That aside I was noticing how attractive some men look wearing hats…so that’s what you’re getting today. Ready?!?
