Teaser Tuesday (15)

Happy Tuesday, everybody!

Time to tease! 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!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser this week:

“You need a handler.”



The anger bubbled up a bit more. “I don‟t need anybody.” I yelled back, jutting my chin forward. The wig fell into my eyes again and proved to be the last straw. Mount Shelby erupted. Every frustration, every hurt he‟d given me coursed through my voice. I pushed the damn wig out of my eyes.


“I can take care of myself! I‟ve been doing great since you left.” We both knew I meant more than my little escapade in Harrison‟s condo and the cop car.


We stood toe to toe, nose to...sternum.

Summary from Goodreads:
 
 
What do you do when things don’t go According to Plan? For starters, you trick, deceive, and lie to the very person who ruined your best laid plans.


Welcome to the world of Shelby Stewart, P.I., who’s been hired to find Harrison Grant. To complicate matters further, her ex-partner, ex-lover, ex-everything Tank shows up looking for Harrison as well, albeit for a very different reason. Harry is the prime suspect in the grisly murder of a call girl, Lulu, in L.A.

That wouldn’t be so bad, but Tank plans on staying at Shelby’s house, and makes it obvious he’s quite willing to help her heat the sheets, again. Shelby knows that sex with Tank is dangerous, fast, and sometimes a little dirty. Now is not the time to become side-tracked. Besides, this job could launch her company into a whole new stratosphere, so it’s imperative she remain focused.

Frustration becomes Shelby’s newest partner as she makes plans to out maneuver Tank in their parallel quest. Tank, on the other hand, is always one step ahead of the game—and is not what, or who, Shelby thought.

 
 
I am reading this book for the blog tour which will be posted on the 13th, and I really like it.
 
Happy reading!
