First Line Fridays – 1 June 2018

02 Jun

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books

I’m definitely scrapping in under the wire with my post today – since its 11:31pm…and i’m sitting in my base hotel room in Ohio after my monthly trek for reserve drill. I’ll have to admit that I definitely wasn’t in the mood for that long drive today (normally takes about 5.5 hours) – but in true Washington DC fashion – what normally takes me an hour to get out of the city was closer to two hours…so my drive ended up over 6.5 hours (including my stop in Breezewood…BTW don’t get even me started on the idiocy that is that intersection to get on the Pennsylvania turnpike…) Anyways – enough complaining about that! thankfully, I have a hopefully good book waiting on my kindle to start reading tonight – so without further ado, here is my first line Friday!

Tate Grayson drummed his fingers on the steering wheel, barely resisting the urge to curse

From: Tell Me Something Good – Jamie Wesley

Goodreads Description:
In a moment of restlessness, Tate Grayson sold his multimillion-dollar company and spun his love of sports into a radio talk show. Life, and love, is too short to take seriously—a fact he enjoys rubbing in uptight radio host Noelle Butler’s face.

After the death of her parents, a tragedy she blamed on herself, Noelle vowed to live a controlled, focused life. Now a psychologist, she channels her need for connection into her radio show. But when the arrogant sportscaster next door tells listeners men shouldn’t get married, she’s all too happy to yank the silver spoon out of his overprivileged mouth.

Their heated on-air arguments are a hit, but when the station director forces them to do a joint show for two weeks, Tate and Noelle object. They can’t stand each other, despite the attraction sizzling beneath every interaction. But if they can’t pull the struggling radio station back from the brink, they’ll lose their jobs. Or worse, their hearts.

Thoughts:
so this book has been hanging out in my kindle archives for a couple of years now (apparently I bought it in 2014…) – but it fits a category for the quarterly challenge that I do and it was also picked by a fellow Goodreads-er for a challenge (based on Monopoly). I’ll admit that i’m also a sucker for a enemies to lovers type romance – its one of my favorite tropes – so I hope this one lives up the other books with similar themes 🙂

    One of these days I need to dig into the backlog on my kindle 😀

    My current read is A Proposal to Die For, the first Lady Alkmene Cosy Mystery by Vivian Conroy:

    ‘Marry me.’ The whispered words reached Lady Alkene Callender’s ears just as she was reaching for the gold lighter on the mantelpiece to relight the cigarette in her ivory holder.

    Have a great weekend!

      my kindle backlog is scary! I started cataloging them on Amazon – I have a lost on TBR shelf and then broken out into amazon purchases (year)

      but that first line sounds interesting – I may have to check it out

    This book sounds delicious! I just finished reading A Defense of Honor by Kristi Ann Hunter… “Graham, the Viscount Wharton, heir to the earldom of Grableton, pride of the Cambridge fencing team, coveted party guest, and generally well-liked member of both Brook’s and White’s, was bored.”

    Happy reading!

    I’m sharing about “No One Ever Asked” by Katie Ganshert on the blog, but I’m currently reading, “The Weaver’s Daughter” by Sarah E. Ladd.

    Alarm’s menacing sting picked Kate Dearborne’s consciousness and hurried her steps.

    Happy reading and have a great weekend!
