Teaser Tuesday #8: When We Collide by A.L. Jackson

Teaser Tuesdays 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 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 chose...

Title: When We Collide
Author: A.L. Jackson
Published Date: November 2, 2012
Publisher: Sapphire Star Publishing

My teasers:

#1: "We ordered, and once the pizza was served, the table settled into quiet conversation. I tried not to let it bother me that Grace had not said one thing to me since I’d been back. She was still questioning my reasons for being there, and I couldn’t blame her." (Page 88 of ARC in PDF format)

#2: "Mom looked at me, her expression piqued in question. She'd never known about the incident. I was sure she would have freaked out." (Pg. 92)

About the book:
William has spent six years running from his past and the last eight months trying to rid his mind of the dreams that increasingly haunt his nights. Trapped in a world of false ambitions and feigned affections, William knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’s going to give.

Maggie had lived her entire life without hope until one man showed her what it meant to be loved. He’d been her light in a lifetime of darkness. Six years ago, that darkness stole him away. Without him, she’s surrendered herself to an existence she doesn’t know how to escape.

When the family William left behind is struck by tragedy, he is called back to the one place he’s sworn to never return to again.

In a moment that will change his life forever, William comes face to face with the girl who, with one look, captured his heart. He is unable to ignore the buried desires and the hope for the future they’d once believed they’d have.

Now William is ready to fight to take back what had been stolen from him six years before.
But he never imagined what that fight might cost him.
