First Lines Fridays #20


First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines? If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:

  1. Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  2. Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  3. Finally… reveal the book!

If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!

Hello friends! How has the week treated you?

Today’s post is a quick little post wherein I’ll be sharing the first sentence of a book with you, of which I haven’t read yet.

I can’t breathe. The trees are a blur of colors, the greens, browns, and reds tumbling and writhing together as I whip my head searching. I can’t see them, but I know they’re out there. Just like I know something’s wrong.

Should I change these posts into First Bits Friday’s? I think I should, haha. I always end up sharing more than the first sentence of the book anyway!

Flame Kissed (Phoenix Rising, #1) by Annie Anderson — Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance

To say I’m having a rough century would be a vast understatement.
I’m on the run, plagued by visions of death, and forced to rely on the man who killed my husband. Yeah, my life is just peachy.

But when the truth shakes out, I find that maybe Rhys didn’t ruin my life those many years ago. Maybe he saved it. Now, it’s my turn to save us both.

Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance? YES, please. I’m going to dive into Flame Kissed as soon(!) as(!) I’m(!) able to!!

I am so close to wanting to read Flame Kissed. In actuality I’ve probably already read it by the time you’ve seen this particular FLF post, haha.

To be honest with you, I don’t know what to expect from Flame Kissed, at all. Even with reading the synopsis.

Thank you for checking out this post!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, friend!

Happy Reading!
