First Line Friday #27

Friday, July 7, 2017

WOW, Just WOW! I can't believe this is the first Friday of July! Before we know it we'll be celebrating Christmas! I know don't remind me right?!?!? I hope you had a great 4th of July! We had a great weekend with family and friends. The only issue we experienced was fireworks in our neighborhood until the wee, wee hours of the morning, and I'm not talking the legal ones, we had mortars going off. Our poor little dog was still scared Wednesday morning and wouldn't eat. She's better and so is Mama. I think I worry more about her than I did my kids . . . maybe not?!?

Today I am going to feature Amy Matayo's new book The Whys Have It.

About the book:

"His music holds the heart of America...but his soul holds a terrible secret."
Chart topping pop musician Cory Minor has it all—fame, money, more women at his disposal than time to spend on them. He’s living the life most American men only dream of. Until an ordinary concert in Springfield threatens to destroy everything he’s worked for.
As he and his band leave the arena for his next show, Cory’s tour bus crashes into two teenage girls, killing one girl instantly and leaving the other barely clinging to life. Lawsuits are threatened, tabloids are talking, and Cory’s idyllic world falls apart. But what no one knows is that this scene is all too familiar. Because this isn’t the first accident Cory has caused. This isn’t the first time he’s destroyed someone else’s life to save his own.
It’s just the first time he’s had to face it head on.
Small town girl Samantha Dalton has no one—no mother, no father, and now no sister. She’s lost everything in a world that celebrates excess. So when Cory Minor shows up at her doorstep offering money and apologies, she turns him away too. You can’t lose what you don’t have, and she can’t take another letdown, especially not from someone who has managed to rip away all she had left. Samantha has been fine on her own for years, she’ll be fine now too.
At least that’s what she tells herself.
But Cory won’t leave. He’s persistent in the worst possible way.
Will Cory’s determination to make things right pay off in the end, or will Sam keep pushing him away until there’s nothing left to fight for? How can two people learn to rely on each other when life keeps hurting them both?



Fame isn't as glamorous as people might think.

Chapter 1

My past just caught up to me, because for one careless second I forgot to run. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

I had to give you the first line from both. I think these are great first lines and definitely pulls you into the book. I haven't read it yet but it is next on my TBR. What do you think of this first line, and what's yours?

Please visit my friends and see their first lines and leave yours in the comments.
