Teaser Tuesday (37): Shadowboxer by Cari Quinn

This weekly meme is brought to you by MizB from Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along, just do the following:

  • 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 that what you share doesn't give too much away because you don't want to ruin the book for others,
  • Share the title and the author so Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their to-be-read pile if they like your teaser.

The other day, I was on Twitter when I came across a few tweets about Cari Quinn's Brazen book, No Flowers Required, being on sale for 99c. I... first, let me just say that 99c sales will definitely be the death of me and my Kindles. I know that I have 100+ books in my never-ending TBR pile and I know that there's always the slight possibility of me never even getting around to reading said book,

Seriously, it's deadly... these 99c sales can cause major, big time, damage! Anyway, all day I've been seeing these tweets about Quinn's Brazen sale so I got intrigued. I went to her Twitter profile and immediately, her avatar caught my attention. I remember seeing the cover for Shadowboxer here and there but I never really paid much attention to it so after seeing it as her avatar, I was all, "What's up with this book? What is it?" I did my research (Goodreads-ed it, looked it up on Quinn's website, briefly viewed the general rating consensus, etc.) and decided to buy it.

I was already, according to Goodreads, lol, reading five books at the time but something told me that I needed to start Shadowboxer as soon as freaking possible. That night, I was up until five in the morning devouring the heck outta it! It is so... asdfghjkl; !!!!! The one thing about it that has me tripping on air is the fact that it's unexpected, to me, anyway. Everything about it is catching me off guard and I love it, mad! I am overflowing with feels and excitement and... seriously, if you haven't put this one in your pile, you must, stat! Plus, I really need someone to swoon, flail, and squee with! ;p

So, those are my teasers for this week. What did you think? Drop your two cents below! And if you have a teaser that you'd like to share, leave the link in the comments below as well and I'll swing by to check it out!

About the book:

Title: Shadowboxer (Tapped Out, #1)
Author: Cari Quinn
Publisher: Rainbow Rage Publishing
Release date: February 4, 2014

She's in for the fight of her life... with the man who only wants to be her lover.

Fighter Mia Anderson has faced the dark side of life and survived. But just getting by is no longer enough. To fund her new life with her baby sister, she’s determined to beat the reigning king of the male fighters in New York’s underground MMA circuit, Tray “Fox” Knox.

Tray refuses to fight a woman, until he learns Mia’s tougher than anyone he has ever known. He soon realizes he wants more from her than blows and blood, and he’s willing to hit below the belt to get it. He’ll fight her, but if he wins, she spends the night in his bed. All night long, his rules. No tapping out.

Mia agrees, certain that he’ll lose. What she doesn’t realize is that Tray loves to fight dirty… and that this match may end up being the most important one of their lives.
