This Challenge is  hosted and posted by our wonderful Blogs: Books, Biscuits and Tea  and  NYX Book Reviews A HUGE "Thank You" to them!

This weeks Challenge is "Dont Be Such a Tease!"
What is this Challenge? Here it is, copied and pasted from the Blog of Books, Biscuits and Tea and here is what the Challenge is:

The Don't Be Such a Tease challenge is all about being the biggest tease possible. We are all reading books that aren't published yet, and what is more fun than showing other readers how awesome your current read is! The challenge is to share a few sentences from the RCC book you are reading right now, so we can all get a little taste. 


Well, for this Challenge I have learned a VERY important lesson! To ask the authors I am doing reviews for, the ones whose books are NOT YET RELEASED, for a photo of the cover of their books! "IF" they have one!! Right now, I ONLY have '1'!
Honestly, usually the books I am reading and have scheduled to read, do NOT have their covers finished yet. It seems as if most ALL of the authors save this step for last. They want the review right away and ready to GO!
Thanks to this Challenge, though, I WILL ASK ahead of time if their covers ARE AVAILABLE YET! Thank you, Challenge! I've always been VERY EAGER TO ACCEPT the offer to review their books, but have NOT asked for the covers, OR the author has told me the cover is not available. I've been taking this ALL for granted. No longer shall I do this!
I DO have ONE photo of a book I will be reading to post a review for!!! YEAH!!!!
This book is called, "Open Heart", Book Two of the Farsighted Series, by Emlyn Chand! Here's a photo of it!
Here is the Goodreads Synopsis of it as well!
Falling for the guy who's trying to kill you? Bad idea. 

Simmi Shergill's life is a mess. Her powers of psychic feeling are on the fritz, and Grandon Township's sudden population boom has brought quite a few unsavory characters to town. She also looks like an over-blown balloon in her size 14 pants, but not even starving herself seems to be working as a diet plan. Well, at least her boyfriend, Alex, loves her so much he'd do anything for her. Last summer he even risked his life to protect her from the mysterious boy everyone was convinced wanted to kill her. 

The problem is, she's not so sure she feels the same way. Is Alex really the man of her dreams? And why can't she stop fixating on her would-be killer, Dax? Whenever he's around, part of her wants to run screaming in the other direction while the other part longs to run into his embrace, no matter who she’d hurt or what she’d risk. 

Simmi's loyalty is on the line. Who will she choose—the blind seer who loves her, or the charming telekinetic with "bad idea" written all over him? Emotions run high as the tension mounts in book two of the Farsighted series. 

I AM looking forward to reading this one!! I have read her first book, Farsighted! It was super good!

    1. Hi Rebecca!
      Yes! I did get to read her first book and did enjoy it! It was out of my genre, but I still enjoyed it very much! I like getting out of my 'rut' sometimes! This was a good book to do that with!
      I hope you enjoy it when you get the chance to read it!
      I will go over and check out YOUR teaser!
      Thanks for coming over to comment! It means a lot!

    1. Hi Celine!
      Thanks SO much for coming over to comment! It means a lot!
      You should grab her first book as her 2nd is coming soon! The first book will be able to get you into the 2nd book and you'll most likely be able to understand a lot more! I enjoyed the 1st book VERY much! I'm sure you will, too!
      It is a YA Paranormal, which takes me out of the genres I like to read, but that is good sometimes as it gives us all-around reading experiences!
      Enjoy it if you grab it and read it!
      Again, thanks for commenting!

    1. Hi Cecelia!
      Thanks SO much for coming on over to comment! It means a LOT!
      Yes, the cover IS pretty, isn't it! Emlyn LOVES Indian food, and loves to incorporate all kinds of different countries and people in her writing.
      Hope you grab a copy of her book if you are interested! It is YA Paranormal, which does take me out of my Genre, but at times that is good as it can give an all-around reading experience! I've read YA Paranormal before as well. Each story is different.
      If you do get this book, it would be good to start with the first book, Farsighted, so you know what is going on in the 2nd book. It might help. I don't know yet if she made book 2 a stand-alone or not? Interesting question there!
      Thanks again SO much for coming over and leaving a commment! I really appreciate it!
