Teaser Tuesdays/Top Off Tuesdays Double Feature #4

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:

    Synopsis per Goodreads:
    It's the middle of the night. You’re awakened by a noise. Someone is in your house. What do you do?

    When it happens at 148 Maple Drive, homeowner Jeff Shaw gets his gun and goes downstairs to investigate while his wife calls 9-1-1. It’s their home, after all. Jeff has to protect it. He finds two men in the kitchen and shoots them both. Dead.

    The incident puts great strain on Jeff and his family. He wants to believe they just need to get on with their lives and everything will return to normal. But it’s not that easy. The dead intruders belonged to a gang, ANG, “Ain’t No Game,” that now wants revenge. And one of the gang, an ex-con who goes by the name I-Man, knows more about the break-in than he’s letting on.

    It starts with a threatening phone call. Then it gets worse. The police, unable to protect the Shaws, suggest they move away for a while. But Jeff isn't going to be intimidated from his house. Homeowner With a Gun takes the reader on a suspense-filled thrill ride as this everyman fights to save himself and his family, while something a detective said plays in the back of his mind: Maybe the intruders broke into the wrong house. Happens all the time. You wouldn’t believe how often...
    Teaser Time:

    He was feeling it now.  It had taken a couple hours but he was really feeling it now.  Not just saying it, but really feeling it, deep down, his face contorted with anger, his hands bunched into fists.
    No more fooling around.  His blood was pumping. It was up. He was ready to smash somebody.  He was ready to walk up and smash somebody right in the face and take whatever he wanted, just like he used to do when he was seventeen.  He'd been mean then.  Well, he was mean now.  It had come back to him, just like riding a bike.

    Ooo that's intriguing.  I need to go start this book now!

    share with me your teaser links so I can stop by and 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!

    "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

     Synopsis per GoodReads:
    Deputy United States Marshal Mitch Knox apprehends fugitives for a living. His calm, cool, collected attitude and devastatingly handsome good looks earn him a well-deserved bad boy reputation, both in the field and out. While away on an assignment, he blows off some steam at a notorious Dallas nightclub. Solving the case that has plagued him for months takes a sudden backseat to finding out all there is to know about the gorgeous, shy blond sitting alone at the bar.

    Texas State Trooper Cody Turner is moving up the ranks, well on his way to his dream of being a Texas Ranger. While on a two-week mandatory vacation, he plans to relax and help out on his family’s farm. Mitch is the last distraction Cody needs, but the tatted up temptation that walks into the bar and steals his baseball cap is too hard to ignore.

    As Mitch’s case gains nationwide attention, how will he convince the sexy state trooper that giving him a chance won’t jeopardize his life’s plan...especially when the evil he’s tracking brings the hate directly to his doorstep, threatening more than just their careers
    Looks like it's a M/M novel! I don't care, I just want it for the cover.  I just was scrolling through my facebook and saw this cover posted, I think its on sale or something somewhere, or a giveaway, I don't know, I immediately wanted to get on and start typing my top off Tuesday after seeing that.  I'm a sucker for tats, so..yeah, I like this one.
    Link me up with your Top off Tuesday so I can go oogle!:)
