Teaser Tuesdays: Love Me Back

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

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

Love Me Back by Merritt Tierce p. 33

"I learned how to anticipate and consolidate, which is all waiting tables is. I learned how to use work to forget."

I know a lot of people do that--put in a ton of hours at work to forget their home life sucks. However, I think most people who do that are not waiters. That is more associated with lawyers or bankers, those kinds of high-powered jobs.

Interesting. I've never worked at a waitress and always thought I'd be terrible at that job because I don't have a good memory. I never thought of it as "anticipate and consolidate." After reading your Teaser, I already have sympathy for the character and want to know what she's working to forget.
My Tuesday post features LEARNIN’ THE ROPES.

I worked in the food and beverage industry for almost twenty years. Mainly as a bartender and manager. I found it exciting and fulfilling but also exhausting. I'd like to read more of this one. What a perfect cover too with the title as a neon light.
