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.

Her books are always perfection and so swoony!

Love, Unscripted by Denise Hunter

and the first line of Love, Unscripted is…

In a world where surprises were not always the good kind, Chloe Anderson knew she’d better savor the moment.

The perfect boyfriend only exists on paper…doesn’t he?

Fresh off the heels of a bad breakup, Chloe Anderson poured her heart into penning the perfect boyfriend—and the result was an off-the-charts debut beach read that resonated with women worldwide. Now, Chloe’s scripted hero is headed for Hollywood, with her book destined to become a major motion picture.

When Chloe gets wind that silver screen bad boy Liam Hamilton has been cast as the ideal-in-every-way hero of her novel, she’s horrified by the film director’s choice. How could a player like Liam possibly do Chloe’s perfect hero justice? Unafraid to speak her mind, Chloe lets her executive producer know she’s one hundred percent opposed to the casting. And oops—the call is on speakerphone, where the annoyingly attractive Hollywood star hears Chloe’s unbridled outrage firsthand.

With Liam’s reputation already on the rocks, his agent concocts a PR plan to upgrade Liam’s image while putting the story—and the film—in the spotlight. The catch? During the movie’s filming in Chloe’s cute hometown of Stillwater, North Carolina, Chloe and Liam will fake a wholesome, committed relationship. Both stand to gain something from the arrangement. Liam’s fans will see him in a new light, while Chloe can boost her struggling social media following and further her writing career. What could possibly go wrong?

As author and actor navigate the waters of the PR relationship, they’re unpre­pared when their professional agreement turns into an actual friendship. And when serious sparks start to fly—well, that’s an unread chapter for both of them.

    She’d only been home from school for two weeks, and already her father was trying to marry her off.

    Penelope “Pen” Parish never thought she’d write on bestseller, let along two, but unless her editor was lying (and that wouldn’t be like Bettina at all – she was usually brutally honest), her latest Gothic novel, “The Woman in the Fog”, had indeed landed on the bestseller list.

  4. I loved Denise’s latest book. SO good!

    Happy Saturday!!!
    I’m currently reading One Wrong Move by Dani Pettrey. So far, it’s pretty creepy. 😄
    “Andi slowed as she entered Jeopardy Falls and the speed limit on Juan Tabo dropped to thirty. She cruised along the two-lane road running through the center of town.”
    I hope you have an excellent weekend. 🙂💕📚
