Teaser Tuesday 10/1/13

This week's teaser is from Catching Liam by Gennifer Albin (Good Girls Don't #1)

Twenty-one year-old Jillian Nichols only has one rule when it comes to boys: catch and release. Boy-catching isn't just a game for Jillian and her friends, it's a lifestyle. After all, boys might be good for a dance or a drink and certainly a little under-cover action of the scandalous variety, but expect much else and you're bound for heart ache.

So when her best friends and fellow boy catchers start dropping like flies junior year, Jillian is determined to keep boys in her bedroom and out of her heart. Until she meets Liam McAvoy, the kind of guy that sticks around to make waffles and who can't—or perhaps won't—take a hint. 

Study abroad student Liam doesn't want to be another notch on Jillian's bedpost. Actually he has much more interesting ideas for Jillian and her bedposts, but his student visa's set expiration date means he can't promise her forever. That doesn't mean he's going to walk away from the challenge of discovering why Jillian is hell-bent at keeping people at a distance. 

Before long, neither is sure who is catching who—or if they're playing for keeps. Jillian knows one thing though: falling in love will not only break the only rule of boy-catching, it could also break her heart.

“You love your family, and you have a lot of respect for women.” “You got all that from spaghetti ?” he asked, bumping his elbow into my side. “You cook and you help do dishes. I’m not sure my Dad knows how to turn on the dishwasher,” I said. “Perhaps I’m trying to lure an unsuspecting woman to my bed by pretending I like to do dishes,” he suggested.
