First Line Friday #20

Friday, May 19, 2017

It's Friday! Which means it's time for another edition of First Line Friday. We have two new ladies joining us today, Christina of Dipped in Ink and Molly of Cafinated Reads. Welcome ladies! If you would like to join us for First Line Friday, please send Carrie of Reading is My SuperPower an email.
Have a wonderful bookish weekend!

About the book:

Allegra Spencer has been living a careful life. Her safe job as an accountant is book-ended by going to church and the gym. Okay, sometimes the gym. Fine. She goes to church. And the coffee shop. She avoids risk at all cost, preferring to stay safe in her cozy condo. Until her accounting firm goes belly up and she's out of a job.
Tyler Hawk had a glorious career as a star NFL tight end. He retired on a high note and now lives a second dream of owning his own business and leading others on extreme outdoor adventures. But he needs help with his books—and his heart. When Allegra takes the job, sparks fly.
It’s a case of safety zone versus danger zone, and in their minds, never the two shall meet.

First Line:

The little hairs on the back of Allegra Spencer's neck stood at attention. He was behind her. She could feel his presence as sure as she could smell the beans being ground by the barista on the other side of the reclaimed wood counter. 

As always mark your place and keep reading!

Here’s my first line:
Garvin Poole slipped out of bed, got his lighter off the fireplace mantel, and walked in his underwear through the dark house to the kitchen, where he took a joint out of a sugar jar, then continued to the garden door. ~Golden Prey by John Sandford

A shiver rippled across Juanita Hoyt’s shoulders, an involuntary spasm induced by the cold metal encircling her wrists.

Signs of Life by Valerie Banfield

Count Me In is in my TBR. I forgot I ordered it and was so happy to see it show up on my kindle the other day.

I can't wait to read this one!

I have the first line from Erynn Newman's debut release 'Out of Darkness' on my blog, but here I'm going to share the first line from Johnnie Alexander's latest release, 'What Hope Remembers':

"The June sun beat on Gabe Kendall's bare head and tapped into his childhood memories of horse farm."

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! Sounds good!
My first line is: “My heart beat as if it was trying to build up speed and erupt from my chest.” From Warfare:Life After Book 2 by Julie Hall. Coming out June 13th.

Sounds like a fun read! I've seen this one around a lot recently.

My first line is from TURTLES IN THE ROAD, a humorous romance from mother/daughter duo Rhonda Rhea and Kaley Rhea. The book arrived yesterday, and I didn't get to crack it open until 1:00 AM...but I just HAD to start it before bed! The first chapter is hilarious...and Piper is my new BF! -- "Normally a nice long solo drive had a calming effect on Piper."

I love this first line!! :) Happy Friday!

COUNT ME IN is on my wish list!

It's a Regency weekend for me. Today I've started reading Carrie Turansky's Edwardian Brides series.

I just finished reading this last night!

Here's mine. Judy Hedlund's For Love & Honor: "You have one month to pay the debt," Captain Foxe stated, his tone as rigid as the plate armor he wore.

Happy Friday, have a great weekend!

This is certainly a book I need to get on reading! This is the book I have just started to read; Mrs. Odboddy: Undercover Courier. By Elaine Faber ” Lighting flashed and thunder rattled the windows of Wilkey’s Market where Agnes pushed a little metal cart through the crowded aisle.”
But I do have another great mystery up today on the blog!

Hi CJ! Welcome! Did you enjoy it? I just finished For Love and Honor a couple of weeks ago. So good!

Back at ya!!

Great line. Happy reading!
