First Chapter Tuesday/Teaser Tuesday - June 19th

Every Tuesday Vicki at I'd Rather Be At the Beach hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, now being hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. 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!

This week I'm reading...

First Chapter...

It was their fifteen-year wedding anniversary. Fifteen years, MacKenzie Anderson thought, feeling the weight of the special occasion. I should've waited until this year to give Jen the diamond bracelet, he thought, cursing himself for his premature decision the year before. I'm going to be making payments for the next couple of years anyway.


Wave after crushing wave of adrenaline raced through Mac's veins, making his extremities tingle.

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. I'm intrigued by the title and cover as much as by the opening and teaser. Hope you enjoy it. Here's the link to my contribution for today: https://wp.me/p4DMf0-1CS

  2. Wondering why the adrenaline rush. Would definitely read on. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I am definitely curious. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “BRING HER HOME”

  4. I came across this recently and already have it on my list. The title has me curious:)

    My TT from Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse

  5. I'd keep reading, I love his books!

  6. Looks interesting. It isn't a book I would usually choose though. This week I have a book from deep in TBR mountain - Foolproof by Barbara D'Amato et al.. Happy reading!

  7. I like that first paragraph, but what really gets to me is the drawing on the cover. I blew it up and am just staring at it,

  8. Curious because of the opening and the cover of the book. I'd definitely keep reading!

  9. This looks interesting - I really like the beginning especially. I'll be curious to see what your thoughts of the book overall.
