Teaser Tuesday 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 the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My teaser this week is:
Affection turns to obsession—and love means both devastation and redemption—in this gripping novel from the author of I Heart You, You Haunt Me.
Rae’s always dreamed of dating a guy like Nathan. He’s nothing like her abusive stepfather—in other words, he’s sweet. But the closer they get, the more Nathan wants of her time, of her love, of her…and the less she wants to give.
As Rae’s affection for Nathan turns to fear, she leans on her friend Leo for support. With Leo, she feels lighter, happier. And possessive Nathan becomes jealous. He’s not about to let her go. And with danger following her every move, Rae must fight for the life and love she deserves if she’s going to survive.
I got up to go home. He grabbed my arm. “Rae, please, don’t be mad.” I shook my arm free and kept walking. “Wait. Where are you going?”
“Disneyland,” I quipped. I glanced back and saw the hurt on his face. My heart softened. I didn’t want to upset him. “The bathroom, okay?”
He moaned. “Who needs Disneyland? We could have all kinds of fun if you’d just let it happen.”
