Tempt Me Thursday (15)

Tempt Me Thursday is a feature created here at The Reader's Antidote, and it's basically like Teaser Tuesday on sexy YA steroids and then a synopsis of my current read.

This teaser is from Taken by Erin Bowman. I'm about halfway through and I've heard there's a long triangle, but I haven't gotten to it yet. My current read is also Taken, so you can find out what it's about!

Feeling so strongly about someone your own age is nothing but foolish; the Heist shatters all relationships, regardless of their strength. It won't ruin us, though, not when [SPOILERS].
"Gray?" Emma is still waiting for my answer. She looks so pretty, even with her hair growing wild in the humidity. I can't stay mad at her. Not here, not when there's no guarantee we'll both make it. I want to tell her the truth, to speak that word, but it feels clumsy on my tongue.
"I'm sorry," I say, "for yelling."
She nods. And then I'm kissing her, because it's easier than forming words. Her lips taste like rain, and I want her closer, even though I want her far away, safe [SPOILERS]. When we finally break apart, the storm is faltering.

Sorry for all the spoiler areas, but I liked this quote and I also didn't want to spoil anything.

There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends…and he’s gone.

They call it the Heist.

Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive.

Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?

What's tempting you this Thursday? Let me know in the comments!
