First Line Fridays (3)

Another Friday enjoying this meme hosted by Hoarding Books. The special theme for this Friday is Military/Patriotic/Veterans Day. My choice is Waiting for You by Abigail Strom.

Erin Shaw has always had a hopeless crush on her friend’s big brother, Jake Landry. Jake is now home after a decade of military service and can’t help but notice that Erin is all grown up. War has left him with scars invisible to anyone but him, and a relationship is the last thing he’s looking for.

Here’s the first (and second) line:

-Erin Shaw felt like she was in high school again. She was sitting at a table with her friend, Beth, staring at Jake Landry from across the room and hoping she wasn’t being too obvious about it.-

He certainly noticed her noticing him. But hey, that’s stuff of romance novels.

Have a Happy Friday!

What are you reading? What’s your first line today?

  1. Happy Friday!

    I’m sharing the first line from Susan Sleeman’s Cold Terror today on the blog, but I’m currently reading Welcome to Wishing Bridget by Ruth Logan Herne, so I’ll leave that first line here:

    Don’t do it.

  2. I only have this book with me: My first line (well, really first two lines because they are so good) is from Runaway Romance by Miralee Ferrell:

    “Ann Stanway sat in her television producer’s office trying to still the butterflies doing battle in her belly. No, not butterflies, more like buzzards.”

  3. My first line is from a book I’m going to be reading soon Hope Travels Through by Loni Kemper Moore…..

    The first time Dad picked me up at the Evansville airport in his 1976 Corvette, I should have recruited a fairy godmother. Not that I believed in such things.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I’m currently reading The House on Foster Hill by Jamie Jo Wright, which looks like it’s going to be full of suspense. Here’s the first line:

    Death had a way of creeping up on a soul, and Ivy Thorpe determined that when it visited her, she would not be surprised.

    And I’m sharing from The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay over on my blog.

  6. I will have to check this book out!

    Happy Friday!

    I’m showcasing The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner on my blog this week. So, here I will share a line from the book I’m currently reading, Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan. I’m just starting chpt. 15, so that’s the line I’ll share:

    “On Monday morning, Kate heard her email ping and saw the message was from the Northern District of Georgia. Her heartbeat sped up as she clicked to open it.”

  7. Sounds like a great story! My current read is An Inconvenient Beauty by Kristi Ann Hunter
    Eton College, Berkshire, England, 1797
    “The line between boy and man was never murkier than when a father died too soon, leaving his son to walk through the foibles of youth while shouldering the responsibilities of adulthood.”

  8. It seems it’s a nice story.👍
    The book i’m currently reading is by Cherie Carter -Scott, PhD. “If life is a game, these are the rules”.

    The first line is , If life is a game, what are the rules? We all know the feeling in the game of life why am I the only one who doesn’t know how to play?
