My Teaser for this week is from

Tell On You

by Freda Hansburg




Genre: Thriller

 My teaser from page 21 in the paperback.

Jerome hadn’t known the real Nikki Jordan then. And didn’t, even now. That discovery lay ahead of him.


Read on if you want to know more.

Synopsis from the back flap of the ARC.

It all starts when you cross the line.

Jeremy Barrett, a 33-year-old teacher, has a demanding wife, insufferable in-laws, an unexpected baby on the way, and no real prospects. But Nikki Jordan, his beautiful 16-year-old student, makes him feel like a hero. She inspires him to write poetry, take chances and dream of new possibilities.

Until he awakens to his worst nightmare.


Tell On You, the story of a married teacher’s fatal infatuation with his beautiful 16-year-old student, best fits into the emerging niche genre of “Grip Lit.” These novels, usually authored by women and inspired by the wildly successful Gone Girl, are thrillers with psychological nuances and frequently unreliable narrators. Readers love the must-turn-the-page suspense, even while they may dislike the characters. The author of Tell On You is a psychologist, well-acquainted with the dark corners of the heart.



How about you? Got a tease? Tell me!

    I’ve never heard the term “grip lit” but have read a number of books lately that would fit the definition. Here is my teaser from Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs. Happy reading!

  2. Ooh, I love the sound of this one! The term “Grip lit” definitely grabs me, too. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “MISS YOU”

      I finished it last night and immediately wrote my review draft. Wanted to remember all my feels about this one.

  3. sjhigbee says:

    Hm… as a teacher I very strongly disapprove of colleagues ‘crossing the line’ with their students. Inexcusable and a complete betrayl of trust. But I bet it makes a good story:). Hope you’re enjoying it Laura. This is my offering – https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/05/23/teaser-tuesday-23rd-may-2017/

    • fuonlyknew says:

      It’s terrible behavior and so selfish on the teacher’s part. They are supposed to be the adults. That said, I did eat this up and finished it last night. Read something similar last year and was curious about how the author would end this story.

  4. Quite interesting – thanks for sharing!

  5. I love eyes on covers and I am a bit curious about this one. Is it a fatal attraction kind of thing going on????
