Tuesday Teasers ~ Lies Inside

I'm participating in this week's of Tuesday Teasers sponsored by Sherri Hayes. The idea is to share a 100-word teaser from a current release or work in progress. This week, would like to share an excerpt with you from my adult romance suspense, Lies Inside. Check out who else is sharing on Sherri's blog.

How do you say goodbye to the love of your life when you are only twelve years old? Finn O’Malley and Lucy Butler had to figure out how to do just that as Finn left his home in Clarkstown, New York for Two Roads School of Music in California. Being a young talented musician, Finn thought it best for his future but wasn’t sure about leaving Lucy behind.

Now, just one semester short of graduation and a promising future at UCLA, he throws it all away to return home. This leaves his family and friends questioning why.

The Finn that has returned home is not the same boy who left. He’s broken and withdrawn. Lucy and his sister Rylan want nothing more than to bring back the Finn they know and love.

From the moment Finn reconnects with Lucy, he feels the one thing he hasn’t felt in years—hope. As Lucy starts to bring him out of his shell, Finn begins to realize what real love really is.

When his past collides with his future, how will Finn deal with the love he needs and the love he despises? Can Lucy help heal what lies inside?

100 words-ish

She let the warm water run through the cuts until the water ran clear. He placed his good hand on her cheek before bringing it around her neck and pulling her close for a kiss. He pulled her into his arms as she wrapped hers around his bare torso. Wait, he’s naked, kissing me in his shower, Lucy thought to herself.

She could feel him tugging at the hem of her t-shirt, wanting her to pull it up over her head.

“Finn.” She pulled back. “We can’t.”

“I don’t want to. I need to feel you, all of you.” Lucy could not deny him anything, especially now.
