Teaser Tuesday #7

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


It’s good for the soul. When you hold things in for so long, they have a way of becoming bigger than you ever dreamed, and sometimes not dealing with hard things can hold you back from really living.
– Secrets that kill (Shelby Nichols #4) by Colleen Helme, page 123, Kindle-position 1837


I chuckled to myself and obediently got out, drying off with a towel before wrapping it around my waist. The food was delicious, and while I enjoyed it, I was starting to get that homesick feeling in the pit of my stomach
– Secrets that kill (Shelby Nichols #4) by Colleen Helme, page 89, Kindle-position 1347


I really love the Shelby Nichols-series. I started with the first book like a week ago and now I’m ready to start with book #5. If you want something funny, and normally not as deep as the first quote is, look up the first book Carrots and if you love Stephanie Plum you will definitely love Shelby. Trust me on this 😉

Happy Reading everyone!

[Rezension] Carrots von Colleen Helme

Blurb: Shelby Nichols is an average woman who is married to the only guy she ever fell for. Her life is organized and predictable, revolving around her husband and two children. All that changes the day she stops at the grocery store for some carrots. As the cashier rings up her purchases, a gunman is busy robbing the bank inside the store. When a customer grabs the robber’s mask, he is shot and everyone runs for cover. Everyone except Shelby, who finds herself face to face with the killer. The next thing she knows, she’s lying on the floor with a bullet wound to her head. Luckily, the bullet only grazes her scalp, and she doesn’t suspect any lasting affects until later, when she suddenly ‘hears’ what people are thinking. With this uncanny ability, her life takes on a whole new dimension. Her kids think she’s bossy and too old to understand them, but that’s nothing compared to her husband. He says he loves her, but what is it about the redhead at work that he doesn’t want her to know? As if that isn’t enough, the gunman knows she can identify him, and he’s out to silence her forever. In her fight to stay alive, she is saved from certain death by a handsome hit-man with ties to organized crime. This pulls Shelby even deeper into danger, where knowing someone’s thoughts can not only hurt her feelings, but get her killed.

Teaser Tuesday #6

Was ist der Teaser Tuesday? -> hier wird’s erklärt

“Thank you.” Feeling like she was ripping her skin away, she forced herself to step back and return to her vehicle, all the while knowing she faced another sleepless night spent aching for him in her lonely bed.
– Singed (Titanium Security #2) von Kaylea Cross, Seite 51, Kindle-Position 714, Juli 2013


Ich habe Singed gerade erst angefangen (bin auf Seite 3), also kann ich zum Buch noch nichts sagen, hoffe aber, dass es genauso gut wird wie der erste Teil Ignited.

I don’t really have an opinion for Singed yet, because I just started. I’m only at page 3, but I hope it will be as good as the first part Ignited.

[Rezension] Way of the Shadows von Cynthia Eden 

Warnung: Way of the Shadows ist der achte Teil der Shadow Agents-Reihe, kann meiner Meinung aber als Stand-Alone gelesen werde, also müsst ihr selbst entscheiden, ob ihr weiterlesen wollt.

Cover von Way of The Shadows

Blurb: Fifteen years ago, Noelle Evers was kidnapped. Two days later, her abductor was dead, leaving her with no memory of what happened. Now an FBI profiler, she uses her past trauma to get inside the minds of killers. But she can’t read her new partner. EOD agent Thomas Anthony is controlled. Dangerous. And hauntingly familiar.
Thomas has been covertly watching Noelle’s back. He wanted to tell her the truth, but couldn’t blow his cover. Their latest mission just revealed a link to her past. With desire ramping up between them—and a predator hunting Noelle—it’s time for Thomas to step out of the shadows. Or lose his second chance to save the woman he loves.

Teaser Tuesday #5

Was ist der Teaser Tuesday? -> hier wird’s erklärt

“Tell me…” Thomas continued with his gaze assessing. “Am I dangerous? Am I psychotic? Is that why you tense up every time I get near you?”
– Way of the Shadows (Shadow Agents #8) von Cynthia Eden, Kindle-Position 148, September 2014

Okay, das sind mehr als zwei Sätze, aber ich mochte den ganzen Paragraphen. Also, shhh… 😉

Hab ich euer Interesse geweckt?
Die Shadow Agents-Reihe handelt von EOD-Agenten. (Fragt mich nicht, wofür EOD steht, ich komme da gerade echt nicht drauf.) Offiziell existiert das EOD nicht, aber sie kümmern sich um den “menschlichen Abschaum”. Jeder Band behandelt einen anderen Agenten und es gibt immer ein Happy End. Falls ihr euch die Reihe mal angucken wollt, der erste Band heißt Alpha One.

The Shadow Agents-series tells the stories of EOD-agents. (Don’t ask me what EOD stands for, I really can’t remember). The EOD doesn’t officially exist but they take care of the really bad buys. Every volume is about a different agent and there is always a HEA. If you want to look the series up, start with Alpha One.

[Rezension] Rock Addiction von Nalini Singh

Als Nalini Singh auf ihrem Blog verkündete, dass sie spontan ein neues Buch veröffentlichen wird, war ich überrascht. Noch überraschter war ich, als ich das Genre dieses Buches sah: Contemporary Romance.
Ehhhh… ich bin kein großer Freund von Contemporary Romance, da es aber Nalini Singh ist, welche dieses Buch veröffentlicht hat, dachte ich: Was soll’s? Ich lese das jetzt. Es muss gut sein.

Blurb: Molly Webster has always followed the rules. After an ugly scandal tore apart her childhood and made her the focus of the media’s harsh spotlight, she vowed to live an ordinary life. No fame. No impropriety. No pain. Then she meets Zachary Fox, a tattooed bad boy rocker with a voice like whiskey and sin, and a touch that could become an addiction.
Fox promises scorching heat and dangerous pleasure, coaxing Molly to extend their one-night stand into a one-month fling. After that, he’ll be gone forever, his life never again intersecting with her own. Sex and sin and sensual indulgence, all with an expiration date. No ties, no regrets. Too late, Molly realizes it isn’t only her body that’s become addicted to Fox, but her heart…
