First Line Friday (week 294): Betsy

Posted June 16, 2022 by meezcarrie in contemporary, First Line Fridays, romance, Sarah Monzon / 14 Comments

Happy Friday & welcome to the First Line Friday link-up! It’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line. Today, I’m featuring the first line of Betsy by Sarah Monzon. If you haven’t already started reading the Sewing in SoCal series, you are definitely missing out!

and the first line is…

“If you get your mouth any closer to that mic, it’s going to file sexual harassment charges against you.”


Rule #1. Never fall for a musician
Rule #2. There are no exceptions to rule #1

As a professional sound engineer, I’m around musicians every day, so I know what I’m talking about when I say they aren’t boyfriend material. They’re only looking out for number one, and that ain’t you, honey. Give them a map with destination Not on Your Life, Mister highlighted, underlined, and circled for good measure.That being said, what am I supposed to do with Asher North, lead singer of the band True North and my new boss? My glares don’t intimidate him, and my sarcasm only seems to draw him closer instead of pushing him away. The longer we’re on tour together, the less my rules make sense. And the more he looks at me the way he does, as if he can see right through the wall I’ve so diligently constructed, the more I want to throw those rules right out the window.

    The radio host’s smooth timbre filled the car’s interior, “It’s getting slick out there, folks. Today is a good day to curl up at home with the Holiday Channel’s latest movie, Countdown to Christmas, starring Jo-”
    Mistletoe Movie Star by Stacey Weeks

  2. I’m currently reading Midnight’s Budding Morrow by Carolyn Miller.
    “The following morning, despite mild admonitions from Mrs. Broomhead, [Sarah] breakfasted downstairs.”
    I hope you have a great weekend!

    My first line this week comes from Free Fall by Nancy Mehl :
    Chapter 1
    “The abandoned amusement park reminded Logan of an aging bride waiting for a bridegroom who never came.”

  4. This is the first line of Book Lovers by Emily Henry. I’m so glad my library hold came in!

    When books are your life – or in my case, your job – you get pretty good at guessing where a story is going.

    I’ve only started this book, so I don’t know if the content is beyond PG-13, but it could be.
