Teaser Tuesday: Fear of Flying by KC Elle

 Our second #TeaserTuesday today brings us this hot, cute cover for Fear of Flying by KC Elle.  Only one bed, forced proximity, almost insta-love, this sounds so wonderful I think I'm going to add it straight to my TBR list.  You won't have long to wait, it'll be in your hands on July 11th.

From the blurb:

Zach let out a breathy laugh and smiled softly at Drew, which made another flush of heat run through him. “To a superhero of a seatmate? For saving me from the terror of takeoff . . . and who will . . . hopefully also be willing to save me from the torture of landing too?”

Drew swallowed and nodded. “Of course,” he managed to rasp out, his mouth suddenly having gone dry.

They “clinked” their plastic cups together and each took a long sip. At the sight of the slight twinkle in Zach’s eye, Drew was immediately thankful that they wouldn’t have to part ways until reaching Dallas. He really didn’t like the idea of their time together coming to an end, even though he couldn’t explain what was happening or what it meant.

He’d always been lonely. Everything, his whole existence, had been lonely. But it hadn’t really mattered all that much because he’d never really been attracted to anyone—physically or otherwise—and certainly not to this extent. This was beyond anything he’d experienced or any reality he’d ever imagined. And he still really wasn’t sure if it was real.

A sudden jolt and jerk of the airplane made them both pitch forward slightly, their snack packets sliding to the floor as the telltale tone of the captain turning on the seat belt sign rang out. Drew watched as the color drained from Zach’s face and his eyes screwed shut. The plane jerked again, and there was a thunderous rattling and banging that Drew assumed could only be the carry-ons shifting in the overhead bins. Drew heard a chorus of gasps and murmurs from the other passengers, and at least one baby started crying.

His stomach clenched, and almost instinctively, he found himself reaching out to take Zach’s drink from him. He set it on his own tray table and then grabbed Zach’s hand and held tight. “Hey, Zach. Listen to me,” he said, leaning closer to Zach’s ear to make sure he could hear and keeping his tone clear and even. “You gotta listen, okay? It’s just a little turbulence. Happens all the time on thousands and thousands of flights a day, and they all land safely.”

Zach’s eyes were still screwed shut, and his knuckles were white, his hand closed tightly around Drew’s. Another bump and pitch of the plane elicited a whimper from Zach and almost sent Zach’s drink flying.

Quickly, Drew set his drink down and picked up Zach’s. “Here, why don’t you go ahead and chug your drink? Help calm those nerves just a bit. Can you do that?”

Zach peeked out at Drew from the corner of his eye, and Drew held the plastic cup out for him. If Zach had been capable of a skeptical look, Drew was sure he’d be seeing it right now.

“I know, slim chance of actually calming down, right? Heh.” At least Zach’s eyes were a bit more open and focused on Drew now, though they squeezed shut again when the plane shook violently for a few seconds before stilling once more. “I know. I know. God, I’m so sorry right now, Zach. But stay with me, okay? If you don’t think it’ll calm your nerves, maybe—maybe would you be willing to chug it down so that it doesn’t spill on either of us? Because that would really suck, one or the both of us with wet pants. Right?”

Drew caught half a smile from Zach, and if it hadn't been so loud in the cabin, he was sure he might have heard a chuckle. This time, Zach did manage a skeptical look, but Drew just grinned and held up the drink. “Please?”

 Fear of Flying by KC Elle will be available on July 11th.  Only one bed, forced proximity, almost insta-love, yum!
