Teaser Tuesday - 4/15/14



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!

So I'm currently reading Plus One by Elizabeth Fama so that is where this week's teaser will be coming from! And so far I'm really enjoying it! Happy Reading!!

His body stiffened almost imperceptibly.
"What did you say?"
I got up off the ground and dusted my hands on my jeans, not meeting his eyes.
"It's believable that I abducted you-" 
"After that. The nice thing."
I had regretted saying it the moment it left my lips. I had hoped he hadn't registered it. Looking out at the misty woods surrounding the parking lot-the reads and golds, the green leaves and moss slowly becoming vibrant with the dawn-I repeated myself, careful to cover with practicality the raw, exposed feelings that had escaped me the first time. "You and you dad helped me so much. It was the only way I could think to repay you."
I heard a puff of air escape his nose. "Giving me a heart attack? That's how you want to repay me?"

Summary: Divided by day and night and on the run from authorities, star-crossed young lovers unearth a sinister conspiracy in this compelling romantic thriller.

Seventeen-year-old Soleil Le Coeur is a Smudge—a night dweller prohibited by law from going out during the day. When she fakes an injury in order to get access to and kidnap her newborn niece—a day dweller, or Ray—she sets in motion a fast-paced adventure that will bring her into conflict with the powerful lawmakers who order her world, and draw her together with the boy she was destined to fall in love with, but who is also a Ray.

Set in a vivid alternate reality and peopled with complex, deeply human characters on both sides of the day-night divide, Plus One is a brilliantly imagined drama of individual liberty and civil rights, and a fast-paced romantic adventure story.
