[Meme] Teaser Tuesday - April 3 2012

It's been a while since I posted anything, and I am totally blaming tax season for this! It is really slamming me this year. I promise things will pick up in May. And in June I am going to BEA (Book Expo America) so that should provide some exciting posts as well!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. 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!)
4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like    your teasers!

"Ever since they had revealed themselves to the world over one hundred years ago - the Awakening, as they called it - and turned their lifesaving abilities into a business, the Immortals seemed to be the only thing anyone cared about."

"How much...was this?"
"One hundred thousand dollars, in addition to your monthly rate."
Brad's gaze drifted to where the cars had landed in the water. His M5 was already submerged, but the back end of the pickup still protruded from the surf, bobbing in the swells like a corpse.
"What about him?" Brad asked.
"Him?" The Angel asked.
"Yeah," Brad said and pointed to the tailgate as it slipped under the waves. "Him."
"He didn't have coverage."

These teasers are from Immortal City by Scott Speer. I received this from the Ontario Blogger Meetup last year as a door prize. It had been generously donated by Razorbill. I haven't had much luck with angel themed books, but I am hoping this changes things. Some fellow blogettes have recommended it, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

~ Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them. He's days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone's obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect--everyone except for Madison Montgomery.

Maddy's the one girl in Angel City who doesn't breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn't recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love.

Maddy is swiftly caught up in Jackson's scene, a world of glamour, paparazzi - and murder. A serial killer is on the loose, leaving dead Angels' wings for the police to find on the Walk of Fame. Even the Guardians are powerless to protect themselves in the face of this threat … and this time it's up to Maddy to save Jackson.

Share your teaser with me!
