First Line Friday | Risking Love by Toni Shiloh

Today I’m joining in the fun by sharing a book for First Line Friday. The deal is we pick up the nearest book (or in my case, the nearest device with an ebook in it) and quote the first line.

I’m sharing the first line from Risking Love by Toni Shiloh. I’ve included the first paragraph below – an intriguing opening!

“Welcome to The Maple…Pit.” Nikki Gordon forgot the rest of her speech because Gregory “Shorty” Smalls had just walked into The Pit with another woman.

Risking Love is a June 2019 new release. Here’s the book description:

Nikki lives with a perfect trifecta of noes. No guys. No dates. No way. After years of keeping men at bay, Nikki Gordon has it down to a science. No one, not even the sweet, hunky Shorty Smalls can change her mind. Period. So if she’s got it all figured out, why does her heart sink to her toes when she sees Shorty with another woman? Read Risking Love today and see what happens when you risk your heart to the care of a good man.

  1. Happy Friday!
    Today, on my blog I am sharing the first few lines from The Governess of Penwythe Hall by Sarah E. Ladd: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/07/04/first-line-friday-92/. I’m currently just starting Cameo Courtships. It’s a short story anthology that I’m liking so far. Here’s the first line from the first story, “Pinned Above her Heart” by Susanne Dietze:

    London, England, April 30, 1851
    “Don’t touch anything, Letitia.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with fun reading!

  2. My First Line is from A Reluctant Belle by Beth White:
    Prologue:
    June, 1860
    Tree limbs slapped Joelle’s face as she ran through the woods behind the bathhouse.
    Loved this second book in the Daughtry House series.
    Happy reading!

  3. I’m currently reading Hello Again by Heather Tullis and the first line is “Piper listened as the Croods avoided being squashed or eaten by a bevy or prehistoric animals.” I’m about halfway through and enjoying it so far!

  4. Great book description and first line. This is the worst thing about First Line Friday – I’m trying to get through my to-read pile, not add to it!

    I’m sharing from Sing a New Song by Candee Fick on my blog, which is a fun contemporary romance. I’ve just started reading Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky, which is set in England in 1909. Here’s the first line:

    “Isabella Grayson’s shoes sank into the plush red carpet of Broadlands’ south hall, and she released a soft sigh. What luxury!”

    Its about the early days of aviation, and I’m enjoying it. Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi Iola, I know! I’ve added a few new books to my Kindle today, lol. Candee’s book sounds interesting, and Carrie’s book is in my want-to-read list. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend. 🙂
