Teaser Tuesday: Breaking the Rules by Suzanne Brockmann

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!


This week my teaser is from Breaking the Rules by Suzanne Brockmann. This is the sixteenth book in the Troubleshooters series. It is romantic suspense of a particularly gritty sort. One of the plot threads in this one concerns child prostitution and one of the characters is a sixteen-year-old child prostitute who has managed to escape the brothel where she had spent her last 8 years. This teaser is about when she meets Ben who is another sixteen-year-old who has major problems of his own in the Mall Food Court where she is hanging out eating the leftover food from people's trays.
Teaser:
It didn't make sense, and she didn't trust him. "Then why do you give me money?"
"Because...you look like you need it more than I do. I've seen you here for about a week now, and you're always wearing the same thing." He looked down at his own clothes. "Of course, I'm one to talk. But I'm doing it as a statement. You're not."
I recommend the Troubleshooters series to lovers of romantic suspense.
