He was going to hit that pickup truck.
 
As the vehicle in front of him screeched to a halt, Eric Nash flung his cell toward the passenger seat, clenched the wheel, and jammed the BMW's brake to the floor.
 
Too late.

  1. Happy Friday!
    The Book I'm sharing on my blog is Lone Witness by Rachel Dylan but I'm currently listening to The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood and I'll share the first line from that here: "We slept in what had once been the gymnasium." Happy reading this weekend! :)

  2. Whoa! I have to get this book.

    On my blog, I'm sharing the first paragraph to This Wilderness Journey by Misty Beller. Here I will share the first two lines from the book I'm currently reading, I Am My Beloved by Caryl McAdoo. It's a retelling of Song of Solomon.

    "Abishag held the cups level and took small ladylike steps, careful not to slosh. She grinned then placed the wine -- except water really, her mother wouldn't allow her real wine -- on the stone table."

    Hope you have an excellent weekend with lots of quality reading time! 😁

  3. Ooh. I like that opening! I've read many of Irene Hannon's romantic suspense novels, but never one of her contemporary romances. I'll have to change that!

  4. Whoa, that's an intense opening that immediately draws the reader in.

    I'm sharing about The Weaver's Daughter by Sarah E. Ladd on my blog today. I'm currently reading Just Look Up by Courtney Walsh so I'll share the first line from that here:

    "He shouldn't be here."

    Happy weekend! :D

  5. Ohhhhh what a start!


    Today’s first lines come from Kat Mizera’s new release, Defending Dani. This was a super sweet and emotional hockey romance.

    “Sergei Petrov got out of the taxi and hurriedly paid the drive as he grabbed his bag. He hadn’t seen his son in more than two months and couldn’t wait to look into his sweet little face.”

    I’m featuring lines from Lexi Blake’s new release “Order of Protection” on my blog. Check out to see the start of her newest series!

  6. Great book to share. I have been loving that series by Irene.
    I am going to share with you the first line of my current read, The House at Saltwater Point by Colleen Coble. "Two construction workers carried in the orange ladder splatted with dried paint blotches and old drywall mud."
