Teaser Tuesday: Hit by Delila S. Swanson

Hit by Delila S. Swanson 
Publisher: Simon Pulse 
Release Date: April 14, 2015

The good news is that the USA is finally out of debt. The bad news is that we were bought out by Valor National Bank, and debtors are the new big game, thanks to a tricky little clause hidden deep in the fine print of a credit card application. Now, after a swift and silent takeover that leaves 9-1-1 calls going through to Valor voicemail, they’re unleashing a wave of anarchy across the country.

Patsy didn’t have much of a choice. When the suits showed up at her house threatening to kill her mother then and there for outstanding debt unless Patsy agreed to be an indentured assassin, what was she supposed to do? Let her own mother die?

Patsy is forced to take on a five-day mission to complete a hit list of ten names. Each name on Patsy's list has only three choices: pay the debt on the spot, agree to work as a bounty hunter, or die. And Patsy has to kill them personally, or else her mom takes a bullet of her own.

Since yarn bombing is the only rebellion in Patsy's past, she’s horrified and overwhelmed, especially as she realizes that most of the ten people on her list aren't strangers. Things get even more complicated when a moment of mercy lands her with a sidekick: a hot rich kid named Wyatt whose brother is the last name on Patsy's list. The two share an intense chemistry even as every tick of the clock draws them closer to an impossible choice.

Delilah S. Dawson offers an absorbing, frightening glimpse at a reality just steps away from ours—a taut, suspenseful thriller that absolutely mesmerizes from start to finish.

Rules of Teaser Tuesday: 
1. Grab your current book
2. Flip to a random page, from what you have already read.
3. Choose 2 sentences, and share! 
4. Be sure not to include spoilers! 
5. Include title and author so all of us can check out the book!

"Dr. Ken Belcher," I say, "you owe Valor Savings in the sum of... Jesus. One point-two million dollars?" I look around at the house towering above and around me. "Seriously?" (Swanson, 140)

I hope you all enjoyed this tease! I'm loving this book :)
