Teasers & Intros
It's the first Teaser Tuesday and Tuesday Intros of 2015.
I've been absent the last few Tuesdays, but I always seemed to be either on the same book as the last post I did or on the sort of book that didn't really suit Teaser or Intros.
But anyway to take part in Tuesday Intros all you have to do is post the first paragraph of the first chapter of the book you are reading or are going to read soon.
And for Teaser Tuesday all you have to do is go to a random page in your current read, pick 2 teaser sentences from that page and share them, preferably without creating any spoilers in the process.
Then click the links at the top of the post to go and share your Teaser/Intro and to go and see other people's posts.
So on to my Teaser/Intro for the week.
Now the book I've currently reading is quite sex filled to be honest (even by the author's standards) so I've managed to pick out a less risqué teaser. Luckily the first paragraph isn't too bad, although it is quite long... no pun intended. ;)
Jason Schuyler, one of my best friends and favourite werewolves, stood in the morning sunlight of the kitchen. His yellow hair gleamed in the light, so that his boyishly handsome face was haloed with sunshine, but as I looked into the pure, soft blue of his eyes I knew that devil's horns were more his style than halos, and pure was only a way to describe his eyes, not him. He'd been a precocious teenager and his day job was still assistant manager and exotic dancer at Guilty Pleasures. The body that showed around his tank top and jogging shorts proved that he stayed in shape for his job, but none of that was what made halos seem wrong for him. He had a streak of mischief in him so strong that he couldn't quite resist pushing... everything. If the situation was tense he had to resist not making a wisecrack at the wrong moment; since I had the same urge, it was one of our bonding moments. He and I both tended to poke the proverbial badger with a stick until it rushed out of the hole and tried to eat us. We'd both learned over the years to curb this urge, and were much happier for controlling that part of us, but Jason still had that edge of devilry to the smile on his face, and the shine in those spring-sky eyes.
Do you know how tough it is typing all that out, one handed whilst holding the book open? Well if you are still here then it is on to my teaser.
She gave me a smile that went with the comment, then was through the door before I had a comeback. Just as well, because I didn't have a comeback.

And this book counts towards my total in the Fur and Fangs Reading Challenge 2015 hosted by Phantasmic Reads and Novel Heartbeat.
