Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 
Anyone can play along! 

Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. 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!)
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Memoirs of a Widowed Mistress by Megan Van Eyck

As I sat emotionally torn between wanting a harmless flirtation to redeem my waning vibrancy and a growing friendship to nourish something unshakably lonely and desperate at my core, it hit me that I was sitting alone, waiting to having a secret lunch with a married man at a restaurant that was about an hour's drive from either of our homes.  In that instant, it occurred to me that he might have misunderstood my intentions.

There was no passion, no need, no longing, only habit.  I felt trapped with a man who wanted me to stay with him out of principle instead of out of love.  A loveless life was not something I planned to endure alone.  I hoped my affair could either make my life bearable or perhaps change it altogether.
