Prologue and Teaser from Never Too Far

 Since Abbi is so kind and sweet and all that. She released the prologue early. I hope you're all ready because... it requires a few tissues.
13 years ago…
There was no knock at the door then just the small shuffle of feet. My chest already ached. Mom had called me on their way home to tell me what she’d done and that now she needed to go out to have some cocktails with friends. I’d be the one that would need to soothe Nan. My mom couldn’t handle the stress it involved. Or so she said when she called me.
“Rush?” Nan’s voice called out with a hiccup. She’d been crying.
“I’m here, Nan.” I said as I stood up from the beanbag I’d been sitting on in the corner. It was my hiding spot. In this house you needed a hiding spot. If you didn’t have one then bad things happened.
Strands of Nan’s red curls stuck to her wet face. Her bottom lip quivered as she stared up at me with those sad eyes of hers. I hardly ever saw them happy. My mother only gave her attention when she needed to dress her up and show her off. The rest of the time she was ignored. Except for me. I did my best to make her feel wanted.
“I didn’t see him. He wasn’t there,” she whispered then a small sob escaped. I didn’t have to ask who “he” was. I knew. Mom had gotten tired of hearing Nan ask about her father. So she’d decided to take her to see him. I wish she’d told me. I wish I could have gone. The stricken look on Nan’s face had my hands balling into fist. If I ever saw that man I was gonna punch him in the nose. I wanted to see him bleed.
“Come here,” I said reaching out a hand and pulling my little sister into my arms. She wrapped them around my waist and squeezed me tightly. Times like this it was hard to breathe. I hated the life she’d been given. At least I knew my dad wanted me. He spent time with me.
“He has other daughters. Two of them. And they’re… beautiful. Their hair is like an angel’s hair. And they have a momma that lets them play outside in the dirt. They were wearing tennis shoes. Dirty ones.” Nan was envious of dirty tennis shoes. Our mother didn’t allow her to be less than perfect at all times. She’d never even owned a pair of tennis shoes.
“They can’t be more beautiful than you,” I assured her because I firmly believed that.
Nan sniffed and then pulled back from me. Her head tilted up and those big green eyes looked up at me. “They are. I saw them. I could see pictures on the wall with both girls and a man. He loves them…. He doesn’t love me.”
I couldn’t lie to her. She was right. He didn’t love her.
“He’s a stupid asshat. You have me, Nan. You’ll always have me.”

Ugh... That was really sweet, it's going to make my job of hating Nan hard. But what I really want is for both of them to get along and you know like each other. Not hate each other and pull guns out at the other.
Since Abbi is a lover of torturing people she also left us a little tidbit from the present time.

“Ever heard of calling before you come over?” Nan snapped as she walked into the living room dressed in a short silk wrap. She looked so much like our mother the older she got.
“It’s almost lunch, Nan. You can’t keep the man in bed all day,” I replied and opened the doors that led out onto the balcony overlooking the gulf. “I need to talk to you and I don’t want to do it so that your bedroom buddy can hear us.”
Nan rolled her eyes and stepped outside. “I find it odd that I’ve been trying to get you to talk to me for weeks and now that you want to talk you come barging over like I have no life. At least I call you first.” She was starting to sound like our mother too.
“I own this condo, Nan. I can come in any damn time I want to,” I reminded her. She would be leaving here in August to head back to her sorority house and her still undecided major. College was a social function for her. She knew I’d pay her bills and tuition. I’d always taken care of everything for her.
“Snarky much. What is this about? I haven’t had my coffee yet.” She also wasn’t afraid of me. I didn’t want her to be but it was time she grew up. I wasn’t going to let her send Blaire running. In a month, Nan would be gone. Normally I would too. Not this year. I’d be keeping my residence at Rosemary. Mother would have to pick another location. She wasn’t going to have this house free for the rest of the year.
“Blaire is back,” I told her bluntly.

Teaser Tuesday #10

Hey guys Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can join, to participate:
To participate you:

* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
Share the title and author as well, so other bloggers reading your Teaser Tuesday post can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

This week's teasers are from ... Opal by Jennifer Armentrout.

So since this is my 10th Teaser Tuesday post... I thought about doing something special. So here is a teaser from my favorite book! 

Opal (Lux, #3)

Teaser #1
There was a pause and his lips stretched into a smile.
"You're right."
Hell froze over. Pigs were flying. "Come again?"
"You're right. I should've checked in at some point. I'm sorry."
The world was flat. I didn't know what to say. According to Daemon, he was right about 99 percent of the time. Wow.
"You're speechless.  I like that. And also that you all feisty. Want to hit me again?"

Teaser #2
After that Dawson shut down. He talked about anything - weather, football, the Smurfs - but nothing about Daedalus or what they did to him and Beth. Part of me was grateful. I wasn't sure how much more I could handle knowing, as selfish as that sounded.

This book, is my most favorite of my favorititist books ever!!!! I love love looooove it. And the ending was like .... tear your hair out and cry for hours bad. In fact I've just recovered after months and I was able to post this teaser!

Today's question of the day is ....

Q: Happy Mardi Gras! If they were throwing the HOTTEST books off of a Mardi Gras float -- what would you do to have them throw to you…?

Okay well if they were throwing books like Never Too Far, anything by Wendy Higgins and Jennifer Armentrout and other books that I'm dying to get my hands on. Then I wouldn't mind shoving, yanking and stepping on people's toes to get what I want/ need at this point. What can I say I tend to get a little wild and crazy when I see books.

P.S. If I get 10 followers today I might have a giveaway with one of the above mentioned books by those authors!!!

Waiting on Wednesday #15

Waiting on Wednesdays is a weekly book meme that lets anxious readers like all of us know what to be jumping up and down for. It is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.

Name: Flirting with Maybe
Author: Wendy Higgins
Publication date: 5th March, 2013
Flirting with Maybe
He was fifteen and she was seventeen.
When sophomore Ryan "The Kid" McPhearson makes the Varsity baseball team, he finds himself submersed into the life of upperclassmen, and falling in love with senior Brooke Bennet. To Ryan she's his dream girl, perfect. Maybe to the outside world a two-year age difference doesn't matter, but this is high school. Everything matters.  
Ryan soon realizes Brooke's life is not so perfect. He becomes her closest friend, her safe place to fall when she needs to escape. Ryan seems to be benched in the friend zone with no chance to bat.
Time is both a curse and a blessing. It ushers Brooke away to college, and Ryan into the arms of his first girlfriend. It alters Ryan from a kid to a high school graduate, ready to venture to college himself. But when Ryan sees Brooke again he realizes there are some things even time can't touch.
Though much has changed, one question still remains. Will the things that mattered in high school always stand between them?


 First of all this book is written by Wendy Higgins. And so it is guaranteed. Although she's only published one book, that one book is enough to judge her talent, because it was soooo good!!!
Plus those heart racing teasers that she lets out every month, God they make me so giddy! *swoon*
So I can't wait to read this book. It might also have something to do with the fact that the first two chapters of SWEET PERIL are at the end of the book but it doesn't matter... *cough cough*
Well I do want to read this book really badly for two perfectly acceptable reasons. :)
Hope you do too!

Today's question of the day is ....

Q: What is the first thing you would do if you woke up to find yourself in your favorite book?

Hmmm... if I woke up and found myself in my favorite book, the first thing I would do is go to over to the neighbor's house and see Daemon Black and probably salivate over him for a few moments then I would go and rain Katy's book collection.
