Happy Friday y’all! This week has been so freaking busy! So many books have come out and I’ve had so many reviews to publish (with my blog tour date for Where Dreams Descend having been on the 26th and me needing to publish my reviews for Tempting the Prince and Beyond Power this week to stay on top of my posting schedule) it’s been a little crazy. Plus, I went back to my workout classes this week- my gym’s doing small, outdoor workout classes on their patio and I went to a strength training class on Tuesday morning and a cycling class on Thursday morning and they were so much fun! They were my first real workout classes after breaking my foot in late May, so I was a little worried about them, but they were way better than I was expecting!
First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?
- Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
- Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
- Finally… reveal the book!
Now, onto the line!
“My phone’s text tone chirps like a robin – which fails to prepare me for the clusterfuck on the screen.
Andrew: Everything you said last night made sense, M. Thanks to you, I can see the truth now. I can’t marry Lina. Need you to break the news. Don’t worry, she’ll handle it with class. Going to disappear for a few while I get my head straight. Tell Mom and Dad I’ll call them soon. “
These are the first couple of lines from the Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa! I just finished this book this morning and I really enjoyed it! It was a really cute book about second chances and finding love where you really don’t think you could. Here’s the summary from Goodreads: A wedding planner left at the altar. Yeah, the irony isn’t lost on Carolina Santos, either. But despite that embarrassing blip from her past, Lina’s managed to make other people’s dreams come true as a top-tier wedding coordinator in DC. After impressing an influential guest, she’s offered an opportunity that could change her life. There’s just one hitch… she has to collaborate with the best (make that worst) man from her own failed nuptials.
Tired of living in his older brother’s shadow, marketing expert Max Hartley is determined to make his mark with a coveted hotel client looking to expand its brand. Then he learns he’ll be working with his brother’s whip-smart, stunning—absolutely off-limits—ex-fiancée. And she loathes him.
If they can survive the next few weeks and nail their presentation without killing each other, they’ll both come out ahead. Except Max has been public enemy number one ever since he encouraged his brother to jilt the bride, and Lina’s ready to dish out a little payback of her own.
But even the best laid plans can go awry, and soon Lina and Max discover animosity may not be the only emotion creating sparks between them. Still, this star-crossed couple can never be more than temporary playmates because Lina isn’t interested in falling in love and Max refuses to play runner-up to his brother ever again…
Definitely go check this book out!
