Tuesday's First Paragraph Teaser

First Chapter First Paragraph is hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, where we share the first paragraph of our current reads to see if it grabs anyone else's attention.  For myself, it's not usually the blurb on the back of the book that hooks me in, it's often the first few paragraphs, and if I have trouble putting it down, I buy it.  That would be why I tend to avoid the bookstore!!

I came across Daniel Palmer last year when I was asked to review his debut thriller Delirious, and I enjoyed it so much that I jumped at the chance to review his second thriller, Helpless, when asked.  Let me know what you think!

Release Date: February 1st, 2012

Love can make you do surprising things.  Lindsey Wells flashed on that thought as she unbuttoned her black sweater.  Her racing heart knew she was crossing a line she'd never crossed before.  The blond hairs of her arms stood on end, as tough they, too, were anxious about this unfamiliar but exciting experience.  Keep going, Lindsey urged herself.  She smiled and released yet another button from its hole.  There wasn't any little voice inside her head screaming "No" or "Don't".  So Lindsey continued - undeterred, unashamed, and never in her fifteen years feeling more turned on. 

Lindsey, known for her cheerfulness, enviable GPA, and deft tackling skills on the soccer field, tilted her head to the right, pinning her cell phone between her shoulder blade and ear.  Through the phone's compact receiver, Lindsey listened to Tanner Farnsworth's hard breathing.  Her body tingled with these strange feelings.  She knew what she was doing was a little bit crazy.  On occasion, her mind would flash a warning that something wasn't right with this.  Even so, she ignored those nagging worries because that was part of the fun.  It was what made her feel so exhilarated.


  1. I don't really read YA so the intro doesn't really draw me in unfortunately (guess I'm too too old) LOL

    I do hope that you love it.

  2. Don't think this is one for me... not much of a YA reader.

  3. It's actually not a YA novel, but an adult suspense/thriller. Check it out by clicking on the link above.
