Tuesday Teasers ~ May 15, 2012



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Here's how it works..


Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure what you share does not give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author too so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

  10 Men, Alexandra Gray

10 MenI've not started this novel yet, but it intrigued me as I browsed my local library's shelves.  The reviews vary widely, so I imagine this will be a 'loved it/hated it' sort of read.  Here's a teaser to get us all started, and I'll post a review when I've finished.  We'll see how this Broad rates this controversial read.

Pg. 1 - 'It is one of the wonders of the twenty-first century that a beautiful, brilliant and broad-shouldered man could reach almost forty without someone, somewhere convincing him it was time to drop his guard - or his underpants.'

Pg. 171 - 'And it wasn't the karate chop that worried me, as much as the man: the Billionaire was one of the most powerful businessmen in the world, but what good was that if he was a coward when it came to his heart?'

So much for that.  I'm quite interested to discover each of these 10 Men, and make my final call.  Happy Reading, All!  Thanks for stopping by.

    "I simply couldn't risk him responding the way Ivory had."

    1. Oh! Very nice, Emma. I'd not heard of this book before, either. Thanks for sharing it with me - a day late! :}

  2. That second teaser, the one from page 171, that one made me stop and think...hard actually. I mean, that was deeper than I was anticipating.

    1. Yeah, me too. Like I said, the book has gotten some very mixed reviews, but I like to decide for myself. I like a bit of dark humor - and I believe - from the teasers - I will find that in spades within this book.

      See you tomorrow, Angela!
