#TeaserTuesday + Opening Paragraph: The Summer Heat by @ElodieParkes

Welcome to Teaser Tuesday hosted by Should Be Reading and First Chapter, First Paragraph hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea.

This week I'm featuring The Summer Heat by +Elodie Parkes. I'm almost done with this and my review is coming up shortly.

Here's the opener

“Watch out, Nate. That thing’s lethal.” Evan burst out laughing as the chainsaw blade
bounced off the tree stump and onto the grass, forcing his friend to cling on tight to the handle.
“Fucking thing has a mind of its own.” Nate turned the chainsaw off and laid it down on the gravel path. “I reckon the trunk’s short enough now to dig the roots out.” He picked up a spade that leaned against a neighboring tree.
Evan grinned. “Maybe we need to take the two remaining branches off.” He ran a hand over his forehead and took off the clear framed, safety glasses he wore. After tossing them down on the grass, he pulled off his T-shirt. Sweat trickled down between his muscled shoulders, and he wiped the back of his neck with his shirt, a frown creasing his forehead. “It’s already hot. Let’s get this finished.” He strode around Nate to the path, and retrieved the chainsaw. Within a few moments, the tree stump stood devoid of the remaining branches.
Nate shook his head at Evan. “You should be wearing the glasses and the gloves I gave you.”
Evan grunted. “It’s done. Don’t fuss.”
Nate grinned broadly at his friend’s gung-ho dismissal. “Hey, it’s not fussing. A flying sharp splinter could take your eye out.”
Evan’s returning grin held affection. “Yeah, I know, I just wanted it done.” 

Here's the teaser
"I got a date with Annabel.” Nate grinned and gave Evan a friendly punch on the arm.
Evan’s voice betrayed his disappointment. “No. Hell, Nate, I was just about to ask her out to dinner. You know how much I like her.”
~ page 22. ePub, The Summer Heat by Elodie Parkes.

Here's the blurb
When lifelong friends Nate and Evan watch the arrival of a new neighbor, they never expect to find their friendship rocked by the lovely Annabel 
As they all grow close, will she be forced to choose between these gorgeous men?
