July 17, 2012 I Loved You First, Reena Jacobs, Self-Pub, Teaser Tuesday 12

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I just started this one last night and will be part of a BLOG TOUR in a couple weeks to help celebrate its one year anniversary and a brand new COVER REVEAL! I’ve seen it guys, and I love it!

From Goodreads:

My best friend was more than just a best friend to me. Three words summed it up: I heart him. I’d never tell him though. I wasn’t stupid. Besides, what he’d told no one, but me, was a little something I wished I could forget… or ignore. He was gay. I guess gay wouldn’t be bad if I wasn’t so in love with him. Now it was just cruel.

Stereotypes run amok in this college love story: Parties, alcohol, hookups, and breakups. Alexandria Carmichael may find it a bit much as she deals with the unreturned love from the boy who completes her. When all is revealed, not only does she risk losing her best friend forever, but also herself. Without her childhood companion for support, Alexandria takes a journey of self-discovery but fears what she’ll find at the end.

The Teasers:

     I loved him all the more for his strength… his courage. If only I was the goddess to stand by his side instead of the shadow beneath his wings.    pg. 24

     Hope. It was such a small thing but hurt like hell when dashed. I wanted nothing more than for Seth to look at me the way he looked at Bruce. I would have taken pretend. That was better than nothing.    pg 32

I couldn’t decide between the two so I went with both! I hope you will come back on August 3rd to see the new cover reveal for this one! I believe there will also be a GIVEAWAY!

    Awww, this book sounds SO SWEET! I have a gay friend who’s honestly the epic kind of awesome, but I have no idea how complicated it would be to be in love with him like Alexandria :’) This sounds like such a sweet and different idea for a contemporary, and the writing sounds great from those teasers you shared. I’m curious about the new cover reveal! 🙂

    Thanks so much for sharing, Sara! Have a wonderful Tuesday <3

    Thanks for sharing! I can’t imagine falling for someone that was guy…I tend to crush on all the celebrities that are gay, and even guys i know in real life, but nothing like really falling for someone.

    I like the second quote! So true.

    Sound so sad! In high school my friend was in love with our gay friend. She is over it and can’t believe it now lol But at the time it was sad and complicated. Loving someone that doesn’t love you back is never fun. I think I grabbed this one free a long time ago but just never had a chance to read it. Great teases! Thanks for stopping by My TT!
