Teaser Tuesday: The Other Side Of Gravity By Shelly Crane

Happy Tuesday fellow bookworms!  

This is an upcoming book from one of my favorite authors and I can't wait to read it!  The author, Ms. Crane, posts these teasers on her facebook page, so I thought I'd also share it with you all, since we all love new books and getting sneek peeks of them! :D


 Isn't the cover beautiful?!

Title: The Other Side Of Gravity

Author: Shelly Crane

Genre: Sci-fy/ Romance

Age Group: Young Adult

Publication Date: March 15, 2015




My name is Maxton and I’m a trader.

I live on a soulless planet where gravity, oxygen, and everything else are sold to the highest bidder on the black market. People are sold on the black market, too. You have to work really hard not to become one of those people. Pay your taxes, keep your friends and family close, and more than anything else—don’t get caught by the Militia. But all the rules changed for me the day I found her.


My name is Sophelia and I’m a stowaway.

I’ve been a slave for almost as long as I can remember. Waiting for the one day, one second, for my proprietor to turn his head so I could run and never look back. Now I'm on the run. And on a planet where no one is on your side and people would turn you in for a good meal or a piece of a silver, being on the run on Landu is the last place you want to be. Until he found me.

I won't survive without him.

I can't breathe without her.


Teaser:

“So,” I began, but my voice was low and scratchy. I made sure I fixed it, speaking more clearly on the next word. “You’re in here, on the floor, instead of the comfy bed that’s in the other room?”

His eyes, they took in everything, and right then they seemed to be taking in my very soul as they peered deep into my gray eyes that I’d always wondered if I got from my father…because I couldn’t remember if his eyes were gray. And my blue-eyed mother was no longer around to ask.

“You just have to look at the situation and say to yourself Is the sacrifice worth the risk and the reward?” His eyes never left mine through his confession, if it even was that, though that’s exactly what it sounded like—he was confessing.

“And is it?” I whispered.

He swallowed, the gulp of his throat so…erotic, I could barely sit still. “Hell yes.” My eyes widened, but no alarms went off. He grinned. “There are no techs in here, remember? No monitors, no sensors.” His grin went wide. “Go ahead, give it a go. A free shot. I know you’ve always wanted to curse and never been able to. It’s freeing, really.”

“You bastard, go to hell. You piece of disgusting idiot trash that thinks he owns the universe, scumwad, you’re nothing, you shady ass, you sexist pisshead, you belittling bunghole, you jerky jerkface, you…menace to society!”
 
He probably thought I wasn’t going to do it, or going to half-heartedly decline, but no. I’d wanted to curse Rivers out every day of half my life and was never able to. He may not be able to hear me, but those words were his.
But he surprised me by smiling in that knowing way. “I only wish your proprietor was here to hear you say that to him. His face alone I would pay silver to see.”
