First Line Friday (Week 40): Craving the Cowboy


Happy Friday!

Welcome to First Line Friday's hosted by Hoarding Books.
 
Today's book is: Craving the Cowboy by Liz Isaacson

Craving the Cowboy
First line:
"Dwayne Carver sat in the cab of his truck, taking an extra moment
to prepare to get out for two reasons."


What could be the two reasons why Dwayne needs a few extra moments before getting out of the truck? I am about half way through right now and really liking the characters and enjoying the direction of this story so far. The review for this book will be coming up around the end of the month.

Now it's your turn!
Let me know your first line in the comments and then head over
to Hoarding Books to see who else is participating!

  1. I don't know that I've read any of Liz Isaacson's novels yet. I must check them out.

    I'm sharing the first line from April Gardner's latest release, Love the War Woman, on my blog, but right now I'm reading a romantic suspense called 'Panama Deception' by Jennifer Haynie. Here's the first line:

    "He was next."

    Short and maybe not so sweet!

  6. What are his two reasons? That first line causes one to want to keep reading. The book I'm featuring on my blog is Rumors and Promises by Kathleen Rouser. Since I'm on chapter 14, I'll share the first line from that chapter here. "I insist that you stay here and rest today, Sophie." Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from the new novella by Bell Renshaw, As Easy As Riding A Bike. It's a really fun read.

    I am currently reading The Captain's Daughter by Jennifer Delamere. I am LOVING this story so much. I am just beginning chapter 7, so I will leave that first line here:

    "Rosalyn drew the blanket around her to ward off the chilly night air as the carriage moved briskly down the near-empty streets."

  10. What a sweet cover!

    I'm featuring Kill Shot by Susan Sleeman on my blog. I'll share here from the book I'm currently reading, Focus on Love by Candee Fick:

    Elizabeth Foster ripped the Christmas wrapping paper from the box on her lap.

    1. Poor Lily, I commiserate with her, the doorbell always seems to ring at the wrong time.
