Teaser Tuesdays/Top Off Tuesdays Double Feature

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!)

  • Here is my teaser:

     "My heart sinks for my son.  That coarse thread of mental illness runs through our family tapestry, and Dylan got caught in its weave.  People like Jade think he's manipulative, that his refusal to leave the house except when it suits him is irrational.  And it is, unless you're Dylan."  ~page 22 "Motherless" by Erin Healy.

    Share with me your Teaser Tuesday link, I'll be sure to stop by to check it out!

    and because I can't make up my mind which one I like the most, I'm participating in Top off Tuesdays too! LOL I know I know, but HEY! Eye CANDY!
    Top off Tuesday is hosted by Felicia from The
    Geeky Book Blogger's Book Blog
    , Amanda from On a Book Bender,
    and Christi from
    Smitten with Reading.
    "Every once in a while there are covers that just make you say Oh My!  Sometimes it is good, sometimes it is bad, and sometimes it is head scratching. The point of Top Off Tuesday is to show you the ones with their Tops Off!  Seriously y’all hunting out Top Off Tuesday covers is one of my favorite pastimes and you should join the fun!"~Felecia
    This one caught my eye while looking for books to add to my TBR pile (like it isn't long enough!).  I can't say the blurb to the book is OMG but the cover is all that and some extra yumminess.
    Synopsis per Goodreads:
    To escape her father's debt to a loan shark, Dizzy seeks refuge in the upcoming Grab. She’d rather belong to one of those terrifying sky warriors from the battleship Valiant than to the sleazy criminal who wants her as his plaything.

    The years of constant war haven’t been kind to highly decorated sniper Venom. Only the promise of earning a wife kept him going through deadly battles. Catching and collaring Dizzy fills him with incredible hope. Finally he has a woman of his own, a mate to love—and bind and adorn with his ropes.

    After a brazen Splinter attack, the Shadow Force uncovers secrets about Dizzy’s late mother that entangle her in a web of deceit. To save Venom, her father and an operative named Terror, Dizzy digs deep and risks it all.

    Venom refuses to stand idly by while Dizzy’s haunted past threatens the future they’re trying to build. He finally has a reason for living—and he’s not giving her up
    so..EH.  I could read it, maybe? or just get it and oogle the cover.
    As always, post your link to your top off Tuesday so I have something to look at :)


    1. Nice muscle and love the tattoo :)

    2. Both books are good choices. I just read the synopsis for Motherless and it sounds interesting. Marina and Dylan have had to deal with a lot so I'm curious as to how their story ends. Saved by Venom is a great cover! He has a perfect body (not too bulky, just right) and that tattoo is hot. The story sounds interesting but I'm not sure if I would read it. But I love the cover!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog and have a great week =)
