God I miss Teaser Tuesdays! It's been almost half a year since I posted the last Teaser Tuesday. This week's a little different though. I'm posting a teaser from an unpublished book (well, not yet published). It's a sweet scene. This is from The Hurricane by R.J. Prescott.

Unfortunately the cover hasn't been revealed yet. So no cover for now. Here's the teaser:

Based on the synopsis, I'd say this is an interesting new adult novel. Here it is:

Emily McCarthy is living in fear of a dark and dangerous past. A gifted mathematician, she is little more than a hollow, broken shell, trying desperately to make ends meet long enough to finish her degree.

Through an unlikely friendship with the aging, cantankerous owner of an old boxing gym, Em is thrown into the path of the most dangerous man that she has ever met.

Cormac “the Hurricane” O’Connell is cut, tattooed and dangerous. He is a lethal weapon with no safety and everyone is waiting for the mis-fire. He’s never been knocked out before, but when he meet Em he falls, HARD. Unlike any other girl he’s ever met, she doesn’t want anything from him, but just being around her makes him want to be a better person.

They are polar opposites who were never meant to find each other, but some things are just worth the fight.


According to the author's Facebook page, the release date is February 16, 2015.

  1. Welcome back to Teaser Tuesday!
    Not sure this one is for me, but I hope you will enjoy it.
    My teaser today is from Lost and Found by Brooke Davis.

  2. I like your "keep calm" badge. FYI I find the fonts on this page very hard to read, and had to blow the teaser way up to make it visible.

    I have two teasers today from Veronica Roth’s YA dystopian “Divergent” series:


  3. You'll have to excuse me, I'm a typical man and thought your blog header said "Smoking Hot Boobs" at first glance!

    Here's my 9/11 Commission Report Teaser

  4. Sounds like an intense story. Welcome back to Teaser Tuesday! (By the way, I found the fonts hard to read too.)
    My Tuesday post features THE LITTLEST COWBOY.
