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 Expired Hope by Megan Besing & Lisa Phillips! I’m so thrilled that both Lisa AND Megan will be participating authors at the inaugural JustRead Rendezvous reader event next week. I’m so looking forward to seeing them both!

Expired Hope by Megan Besing & Lisa Phillips

and the first line is…

“Peter, you are not at war.”

Fire. Family. Faith.
A fire chief, a woman in danger, a forbidden love…can it survive the flames of revenge?

She’s running to a fresh start…

Veteran and therapist Natalie Atkinson just wants to help heroes survive their past. But when she’s rescued from a fire…and falls for the one person she’s supposed to help…she could destroy both their futures.

It’s his last chance to get it right…

Fire Chief Macon James is the right man for the job–he just has to prove it to the counselor who is signing off on his team. What he doesn’t expect is to fall for her.

But danger is stalking her and someone is going to get hurt.

So, he’ll have to protect her, without crossing any lines. And she’ll have to make sure that she doesn’t get him killed.

A romantic suspense with a heroic but wounded fire chief, a woman on the run, secrets, a forbidden love, and a plot that will keep you guessing.

The second breathtaking book in the Last Chance Fire and Rescue series!

    Have you heard the saying, Anything that can go wrong will? Well, I am the poster child for that expression.

  2. That’s an interesting opening. I am picturing what I think will happen next, but I’m not sure if that’s where the author is really going.

    “We’re losing her!” Chaos erupted as two paramedics shoved a gurney through the emergency department doors at a dead run. One of them called out, “It’s Jaelyn Reed. She was attacked.”

  4. Happy Friday! 😀
    I’m currently reading Forged in Love by Mary Connealy. It’s a good story so far!
    “How late do you work?” Mariah jerked as if he’d startled her.
    I hope you have a great weekend! 😀❤️📚

  5. The Orphan

    The shadows of Mount Tabor crept across the desert floor toward the city. A young boy clad in a calf-length grey tunic, belt, and sandals glanced over his shoulder as he entered the synagogue grounds.
