#TeaserTuesday +Opening Paragraph-Basement Level 5: Never Scared @LWrightAuthor

This week I'm reading Basement Level 5: Never Scared by L.R. Wright and participating in First Chapter, First Paragraph hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea  as well as Teaser Tuesday hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Here is the opener from Chapter 1:



November 3, 2011
The raging storm increased in intensity as the hours crawled by. Violent gusts of wind howled and rocked the huge mansion. Flashes of lightning filtered through the closed blinds, followed closely by loud, crashing thunder. Tree branches scratched against the roof as the pounding rain battered the house.
Alexa had just started to relax when she heard a distinctly different sound outside. Gunshot? She bolted upright on the sofa and listened intently. Standing up, she walked to the window to investigate. Suddenly, there was a loud knock at the door. She started for the door then hesitated. Another knock sounded a few minutes later. Slowly continuing to the door, she peered through the peephole. A stranger stood outside. Alexa hesitated before opening the door. A cold chill ran up her spine.
 

Here's my teaser:



“What the hell was that?” Alexa growled. She whirled around and trained her gun on Nicholas, pressing the tip to his temple. 
Nicholas’ eyes widened. “I just wanted to help. I thought—”
“Why are you here?” she asked. “I told you to monitor the cameras. What makes you think we need your help? We had this situation under control and you jeopardized our safety by leaving your post and coming here.”


If you enjoy kick-ass heroines in suspense/thrillers, then you can't go wrong with this one. I'm enjoying to so far.

    1. I wouldn't have opened the door either. But Alexa is one kick-ass heroine. So it's the kind of thing she does.
