Teaser Tuesdays #5

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I am currently reading two books "Pretty Flamingo" by Perry Martin and "Zombie Love: The Outbreak" by Eric J. Sabolik.

Here is the teaser from the first book - "Pretty Flamingo" by Perry Martin.

By the time they’d finished eating, and most of a second large bottle of beer had been consumed, David was feeling a warm glow. Looking across at Lisa, her cheeks flushed a rosy red, he could see she was probably feeling the same.

‘Tipsy?’ he asked.

She gave him a wry smile. ‘Definitely. Probably a bit drunk, actually. It doesn’t take much for me. I feel nice, though. Warm and fuzzy.’

‘Me too.’ David reached across the table and took Lisa’s hands in his. ‘This was perfect, Flamingo. You did a great job on the food. And the candles were a nice touch.’

‘The best is yet to come,’ Lisa said, winking at him.

David poured the last of the beer into their glasses. She picked up her glass and started to drink when David reached across and stopped her. ‘Hold on a sec! I want to think of a suitably poetic toast to end the meal with.’

Here is the teaser from the second book - "Zombie Love: The Outbreak" by Eric J. Sabolik.  I am enjoying this book, more than I thought.  Zombie lovers, you have one more book you can rely on!

She put her free hand over his and gave it a soft squeeze.  She knew now that the feelings they had for each other had swelled to love.  You don't go through something like this with another person you care about and not fall in love.  She could see it in the way he looked at her, when he finally stopped looking at the corpse.  They were in love, and now was the time for Summer to show it.

"I'm sorry I got involved with the whole Mr. Franklin thing," she said as she dropped her chin, feeling ashamed and sheepish.  Out of her peripheral vision, she could see he was trying to act cool, shrugging his shoulders and smiling awkwardly.  It just made her love him even more.

"Don't worry about it.  I was happy to help...thank you...for...I don't know...going all warrior woman on this guy."

So, what are you currently-reading?  Anything interesting?  Do you love my new zombie book? :)
