Taste Testing Tuesdays

Good morning (or whatever time it is where you are), everyone!
Welcome to another installment of Taste Testing Tuesdays here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!  Taste Testing Tuesdays was inspired by 'Teaser Tuesdays', a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading
On the menu this week...a title that I'm feverishly reading through partially because it really is good and partly because the blog tour will be swinging through this week and I want to be ready to share it with all of you.  Good idea, right?  Yeah...glad I thought of it.  ^_^
Ready for a taste?   How about TWO?  Here we go!

I Couldn't Love You More
Jillian Medoff

I use to believe in love at first sight.  I sent to college at Emory, where I fell desperately, achingly, in love with Finn Montgomery, and my world turned upside down.  When we graduated, Finn moved to New York City, and I haven't seen or spoken to him since.  So now that I'm thirty-eight and have some perspective, I believe in lust at first sight and love that grows over time.
-- pg 18
Later, after I pick up Sylvia -- Wait; allow me to rephrase: After I drive to Sylvia's house, stand in her foyer for fifteen minutes while she searches for her saddle-brown jacket ("No, Eliot, saddle brown; the jacket in your left hand is chocolate brown, and the one in your right is walnut"), and then help her shuffle out to my car and s-l-o-w-l-y lower her barely pregnant body into the front seat, we're finally on our way.
-- pg 155
If I had to categorize'd be Women's Fiction.
Eliot is the eldest sister and the one whose eyes we see the story through.  There are up, downs and everything in between...including a family that can't mind its own business (but in a purely "we're only trying to help" sorta way), the reappearance of a long ago flame (as well as incoherent babbling on Eliot's part...LOL!) and the anticipation of how much will or won't change based off what happens next.  We're glimpsing their pasts while embarking on their futures.  Curious to see where it takes us to say the least.  Blog tour swings through this week!  Stay tuned...

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

Until next time....happy reading!
