First Line Fridays



First Line Fridays is a bookish meme created and hosted by Hoarding Books. The rules are simple, post the first line(s) of the novel you’re currently reading or in my case next up on your TBR. then head on over to Hoarding Books and link up. (also, if you’re a romance reader loving on those ab covers, be sure to write (mature) next to your linky if your post shows mature content.)


Today I’m sharing the first lines from a novel that I’m currently rereading and loving all over again!

The Perfect Game by J. Sterling



“Cassie, are you almost ready?” My roommate, Melissa, yelled down the hall.
“Just give me one sec! I’m almost done,” I shouted.

About The Book

The Perfect Game
(The Perfect Game #1)

By: J. Sterling


He’s a game she never intended to play.
And she’s the game changer he never knew he needed.
The Perfect Game tells the story of college juniors, Cassie Andrews and Jack Carter. When Cassie meets rising baseball hopeful Jack, she is determined to steer clear of him and his typical cocky attitude. But Jack has other things on his mind…like getting Cassie to give him the time of day.
They are damaged, filled with mistrust and guarded before they find one another (and themselves) in this emotional journey about love and forgiveness. Strap yourselves for a ride that will not only break your heart, but put it back together.
Sometimes life gets ugly before it gets beautiful…

A Few Quick Thoughts:

The first time I read The Perfect Game by J. Sterling, I cried buckets of tears. Before I started my reread yesterday I decided to put myself through a DO NOT CRY challenge. The problem with rereading a romance novel is, you know all about the devastation that’s coming, but still you can’t help but fall for this couple all over again… I know for a fact that I’m going to fail this challenge. I’m folding! There is no way I’ll get through this book without at least shedding one tear….Maybe two.


Question Of The Day:

When was the last time you straight up ugly cried while reading and what book caused all those tears?

  1. I need to try a DO NOT CRY challenge when I read When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell. The first book, Into the Free, had me using quite a few tissues.

    I’m sharing the first line from Death in the Stocks by Georgette Heyer on my blog today. Here is the second line:

    “No lamp shone in the window but a full moon sailed in a sky the colour of sapphires, and lit the village with a pale light, as cold as the sheen on steel.”

    Happy Friday!

    1. I’m always looking for books that have the ability to make me Ugly Cry. I’ll have to check out When Mountains Move.

      Thank you for sharing your second line. I’ve read a few murder mysteries but I try to steer clear from that genre. They give me some seriously messed up dreams lol.

  2. Yeah, it sounds like I’d totally fail on the “don’t cry” challenge too.

    I’m featuring “The Seamstress” by Allison Pittman on my blog, but I’ve just started reading “Atoning for Ashes” by Kaitlin Covel, so I’ll share that first line here:

    Josie had always detested black.

    Have a great weekend!
