First Line Fridays

As you know, I am always buying books for my Kindle.  How can you pass up purchasing a book for under a few dollars?  I know I can't.  There are so many wonderful books out there that I want to read, and I love that I can take my Kindle with me wherever I go, which means I get to take dozens of books with me.  This book by Becky Wade is one I recently downloaded to my Kindle, and I absolutely love the front cover!  Has anyone else read this book?  Let me know in the comments below.  When I read the first few lines of the prologue, I knew I had to add this novel to my First Line Fridays list.  Enjoy! 

As always, please be sure to check out the book lines from these other amazing bloggers too:

Today I am going to post a line from: 
Love in the Details 
by Becky Wade 
And the first line is...
"Josh, Since I broke up with you, I can't stop crying.  Can you please forgive me?  I love you.  I'm certain I'll always love you."  
Happy Friday and happy reading!  


  1. Well, that's got my attention!

    I've got the first line from "Will Not See" by Chautona Havig over on my blog today. Since it's the second book in the 'Sight Unseen' series, I thought I would share the first line (or two) from the first book in the series, "None So Blind", here:

    "Her arm stretched out from beneath the covers. Later, she would admit that in that moment her world changed irrevocably."

    Have a great weekend!

    1. I love it when first lines grab your attention and interest like that! :) Happy reading!

  2. Huge hands ripped at Cole Sanders' shirt and yanked him away from Audrey Vaughn's embrace. Tackling the Fields by Janet Ferguson

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Love Becky Wade and that line definitely has my attention!

    I'm featuring "A Name Unknown" by Roseanna M. White on the blog today, but the closest book I have to me right now is "The Writing Desk" by Rachel Hauck.

    "This should by night of triumph. To be queen of her world. An acclaimed, best-selling, award-winning author with the literati bowing at her feet."

    Happy Weekend!

    1. I can't wait to read The Writing Desk. :) Happy reading!

  4. LOVE that book!
    Happy Friday! My first line is from Destitutio by Brett Armstrong, which I am excited to start reading:
    “The grisly, grey swirls churned up before Marcus, a thin mask to the merciless heat.”

    1. Lovely... can't wait to finish reading it. :) Happy reading!

  5. Oh, let's not even talk Kindle books (hides face). I have several thousand on my Kindle--some of which I just grabbed cause they were free, some of which I really want to get to.

    This weekend I'm reading Kim Vogel Sawyer's "Bringing Maggie Home." I'm a little over halfway and it's such a GREAT read! Here's the first line:
    Mid-July 1943
    "Hazel set a porcelain cup and saucer on the overturned apple crate in front of her little sister. 'Madam, would you like cream and sugar in your tea?'"

    1. Wow...thousands...sounds wonderful. :) I've always wondered how many books my Kindle would happy to know I won't run out of space. :) Happy reading!

  6. Conner O'Shea braced his boots against the auction block and glared at the crowd gathered on the landing.
    From The Promise of Breeze Hill by Pam Hillman

    1. Sweet lady...I met Pam Hillman at a writing conference a few years ago. Happy reading!

  7. That is a beautiful dress on the cover.
    My first line this week is from Vow Unbroken by Caryl McAdoo
    "He took the pinch of cotton Sue offered and rubbed it between his short, pudgy fingers."

  8. I love Wade stories. I can't wait to read this one.

    I'm currently in the middle of reading Rule of Law by Randy Singer. It's not typically a genre (military/legal) I read, but it's so engaging. Here's the first line:

    "They descended like vultures from the C-17 transport plane, silhouettes against a quarter moon in a tar-black sky."

    1. I'm happy you were able to add another book to your reading list. :) Happy reading!

  9. I love Becky Wade's books, but I haven't read this one yet. That first line intrigues me.

    1. I love intriguing first lines! I can't wait to finish reading this book. Happy reading!
