First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intro is hosted by bibliophilebythesea.

This is how it works: Write down either the first paragraph of a book your are currently reading / intending to read or read in the past and share with us. I do like a good opening!




The book I have chosen today is Loving Heather by Alex Carlisle. 



It is a YA book which I got from Amazon for 99p (still this price today!). Greg's life is changing forever -  he is leaving home to go to University, moving into a shared student house in the Uni district of Cardiff. Three things are occupying his mind: girls, girls, girls. Will he find 'the special one' and settle into Uni life? The book also has a second POV - a girl who is not all what it seems. An easy and enjoyable read, but it is not comedy-style a la 'American Pie', but more of a thriller-romance set in First Year in Uni. 
My full review will be up later this week. 

Here is the opening chapter:

It was Greg's last night at home. In the morning there would be nothing more to do other than get dressed and go. The things he needed were already in the back of his car waiting for his new life to begin. His old friends the laptop and iPod, and his new stuff like his new clothes and new razors and new deodorant were all packed. He even had some new tunes - safety songs in case he got the urge. Yes in his new life, Greg, starting from tomorrow, was going to be a man of action. 








Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should be reading. 

These are the rules  (taken directly from MizB's blog:)


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


From Loving Heather by Alex Carlisle:

I thought she had come to see me in a fit of rage hurt and anger because of what Greg did. Instead I got the first assault of her words, "I know what you did.'


I could see it all in her eyes, her beautiful big eyes. Even when she shouted at me there was a music to it. 

----

Now money was running out. Greg's overdraft was pretty close to being maxed out. He had pretty much pissed away his first student loan instalment. 



So, would you give this book a try?
