First Line Friday #28

Friday, July 14, 2017

About the book:

Would you give up everything for a life you hate with the person you love?
Paige McAllister needs to do something drastic. Her boyfriend can’t even commit to living in the same country, her promised promotion is dead on arrival and the simultaneous loss of her brother and her dream of being a concert violinist has kept her playing life safe and predictable for six years. Things need to change. A moment of temporary insanity finds her leaving her life in Chicago to move to Sydney, Australia. There she finds herself, against many of her convictions, as a logistics planner for one of Australia’s biggest churches, and on a collision course with her boss’s son.
Josh Tyler fronts a top-selling worship band and is in demand all over the world. But his past failed romantic relationships almost destroyed both his reputation and his family. He's determined to never risk it happening again. The last thing he needs is some American girl tipping his ordered life upside down. Especially one who despises everything he’s ever worked for and manages to push every button he has.
When Josh and Paige are thrown together to organize his band’s next tour, the sparks fly. But can they find a way to bridge the differences that pull them apart? Or will they choose the safety and security of what they know over taking a chance on something that will require them to risk everything?

First Line:

Paige McAllister didn’t think it was possible, but there was something worse than being single and thirty at your nineteen-year-old sister’s wedding.

Happy Friday!! My first line us from A Matter of Trust by Susan May Warren: "Gage Watson blamed the trouble on the bright, sunny day."

This book.....I loved it! Oh my goodness so many good things to say about it.

I just started Cara Putnam's Beyond Justice. "If he didn't find that flash drive now, he would have to disappear."

That first line really does grab your attention!
Have a nice weekend!

Happy Friday!

My first line comes from Julian Fellowes's Belgravia.

The past, as we have been told so many times, is a foreign country where things are done differently.

Oh, I LOVED that book so much! I've read it 3 times!
My first line is from Anne Love’s “The Gardener’s Daughter” in the Of Rags and Riches romance collection.
Thump, Thump. She could plant herself in a library world such as this one forever.

Happy Friday, have a great weekend!

I'm looking forward to reading this book!
