Teaser Tuesday 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

• 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!

This week's teaser comes from the following book:

Title: Crossing the Line
(Pushing the Limits #1.5)
Author: Katie McGarry
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Published: April 1, 2013
Purchase: Amazon  |  B&N

Goodreads summary: 

Katie McGarry captivated readers with her “riveting, emotional”* Young Adult debut, Pushing the Limits. In this gripping novella, she tells the story of Lila and Lincoln, who discover that sometimes it’s worth crossing the line for love… 

Lila McCormick, Echo's best friend from Pushing the Limits, first met Lincoln Turner when tragedy struck both their lives. But she never expected their surprise encounter would lead to two years of exchanging letters—or that she’d fall for the boy she’s only seen once. 

Their relationship is a secret, but Lila feels closer to Lincoln than anyone else. Until she finds out that he lied to her about the one thing she depended on him for the most.

Hurting Lila is the last thing Lincoln wanted. For two years, her letters have been the only thing getting him through the day. Admitting his feelings would cross a line he’s never dared breach before. But Lincoln will do whatever it takes to fix his mistakes, earn Lila’s forgiveness—and finally win a chance to be with the girl he loves.


My teaser: 

I'm on the verge of begging, his lips finally come within butterfly-inducing distance of mine.  This is one of my favorite moments:  the seconds before the kiss.  It's like dangling on a ledge with gravity pulling me forward and the wind daring me to let go and fly.

I cheated.  More than two sentences, I know.  Can you blame me, though?  I just love this paragraph, and I am completely obsessed with Katie McGarry and this series!
