Teaser Tuesday: Lola and The Boy Next Door

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading!
To participate all you have to do is:

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 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!


Lola and The Boy Next door was funny and amazing and brilliant! I wanted to quote the whole damn book because it was THAT. GOOD. SQUEEEEEEEEE! 
“I cut a pathetic figure undressed,” he continues. “Dressed too, for that matter. Or half dressed. One sock on, one sock off. Just a hat. No hat. You can stop me at any time, you know. Feel free to tell me to shut up.” 

“Shut up, Cricket.” I say. ~ARC p. 50

“Dad! I’m serious.” My panic rapidly intensifies. “I can’t go to the dance like this, it’s too much. Way too much.”
“Honey,” he shouts to Nathan. “You’d better get in here. Lola is using new words.”
Nathan appears in my doorway, and he grins when he sees me.
“Our daughter said”—Andy pauses for dramatic effect— “it’s too much.” ~ARC p. 320

Annnnnnd of course I can’t leave you with out a little (okay a lot!) of Anna & St. Clair!
“When I come back, the club is packed. There’s hardly standing room. Anna has snagged a wooden bar stool, one of the few seats here. St. Clair stands close to her, and he smoothes the platinum stripe in her hair. She pulls him even closer by the top of his jeans, one finger tucked inside. It’s an intimate gesture. I’m embarrassed to watch, but I can’t look away.” ~ARC p. 147
I COULDN'T LOOK AWAY EITHER! Anna and Étienne are basically my FAVORITE thing EVERRRR! And the rest of this scene is SO ADROABLE and gaaaah! Get this boook! You NEED it in your life!

  5. Been seeing this book a lot lately. Thanks for sharing, can't wait to get my copy! Here's my TT for this week. New follower as well.

  6. I am dying to read this book! Everybody is raving about it! Excellent teasers! My teaser is from REBIRTH by Sophie Littlefield.

    P.S. I'm Team Ren, too, but I didn't think there was any chance for him so I didn't read Wolfsbane. Have you read it? Should I?

  7. I have been seeing this series all over the blogosphere, and your teasers tell us a lot more about why. Very clever, cute, and it sounds like fun, too.
