After the heart-shattering ending of her first serious relationship, eighteen-year-old Sophie has sworn off love. Now that school is behind her, she plans to travel the world and form as few attachments as possible. The only exception: Lex, the artist on the other end of the Internet who chats to her almost every day. A guy she can never lose--since she doesn't actually have him to begin with.

Sophie's plan can start as soon as she's faked her way through her sister's wedding. Pretending to be happy and excited for the next week or two should be easy, right? But that was before Caleb walked onto the scene ... Best man to Sophie's almost-brother-in-law, Caleb is infuriatingly friendly and determined to get a real smile out of Sophie. Forced together through dance classes and wedding-related disasters, Sophie is determined not to like him. And terrified when she ends up failing.

Then Lex suggests he and Sophie should meet, and all Sophie's careful plans for the future begin to unravel. Now the girl who was never meant to fall for anyone must figure out what to do with the two guys tugging at her heart.

Purchase Links

Goodreads Amazon Barnes and Noble Book Depository

This will be a new feature on the blog.  This is hosted by Hoarding Books.

I am currently reading The Trouble with Falling, written by a South African author.  Somehow I’ve only read the first book in the series but skipped to book 4.  Oh yeah, it’s because I got a great deal on the book.  🙂  I really enjoyed The Trouble with Flying and gave it .

Just a caveat before the first line.  This book, while it does not contain any sexual situations, does have some references to certain body parts that should not be mentioned (at a bachlorette party).  And a “mild” swear word is used several times in it.  Other than that, I am enjoying the book so far.  Stay tuned for a review once I’ve finished.

So here is the first line

The guy on the other side of the craft supplies store is watching me.

  1. Happy Friday!

    My FLF is from Barefoot Summer by Denise Hunter

    Madison McKinley scanned the crowded town hall, wondering how many of her friends and neighbors she’d have to fight to get what she came for.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I love the name of your blog and the graphic! <3 And the book sounds interesting, too!

    I’m featuring the first line from The Dishonorable Miss DeLancey by Carolyn Miller on my blog this week, but right now I’m almost finished a gripping read by Candace Calvert–Disaster Status–so I’m going to give you the first line of that:

    “Fire captain Scott McKenna bolted through the doors of Pacific Mercy ER, his boots thudding and heart pounding as the unconscious child began to stiffen and jerk in his arms.”

    Gotta get back to it! Have a great weekend ?

    Happy Friday! My first line is from Love Unawares, a historical fiction book by Michelynn Christy:

    Prairie, Texas 1895
    “Well, Jed. Are you ready to meet your new wife tomorrow?”

  4. Welcome to the First Line Fridays FUN!
    Here’s the first line from my next read:
    “Fowltown Village, Georgia
    Big Chestnut Moon (October) 1817
    Captain Marcus Buck dropped to one knee beside an Indian’s crumpled form and swept a hand down her face, lowering her lids over sightless eyes.”
    Drawn by the Frost Moon: Bitter Eyes No More by April W. Gardner

  5. I’m sharing about Isaiah’s Daughter by Mesu Andrews on the blog today, but here I’m going to share the first line from The Esther Paradigm by Sarah Monzon.

    Hannah Pratt stared out across the grainy hills as the wind blew a gentle kiss over the crest.

    Chapter 1
    This was not how I’d thought I would die.

    Happy Friday!

    Rebecca Hawes lay awake in her tent, convinced that the howling wind was about to lift her entire camp into the air and hurl it to the far side of the desert. Where We Belong by Lynn Austin

  7. Happy Friday! I really like your blog title, Among the Reads. That is super cute!!!

    I am showcasing Embracing Hope by Janell Butler Wojtowicz this week, so I will post the first line from the book I plan to read after I finish Embracing Hope.

    “This is for them. This is for the magic. This is for every little dreamer in the room. Dozens of little awestruck faces crowded the large studio as I took position to practice my Sugar Plum Fairy solo.”

    So, a little more than one line, but I really like the image this creates of cute little ballerinas excited to see a performance. This comes from A Season to Dance by Patricia Beal.

  8. Great cover, and an excellent first line. And a South African setting – unusual. I’ll have to check it out. But I’ll try and start with book #1 …

    I’m sharing from The Dishonourable Miss DeLancy over on my blog, but I’m currently reading The Captive Brides collection. I’ve just started Waltzing Matilda by Lucy Thompson. Here’s the first line:

    Matilda Brampton took one more look at the walls of the Parramatta Female Factory and vowed it would be her last.

  9. I just added your feature book to my to-read list. I’m glad you shared it. I’m featuring A Most Peculiar Circumstance by Jen Turano on my blog, but here I will share the first line from a novel I recently published called Reluctant To Wed. “Sitting in her grandfather’s traveling coach, Emma suddenly felt the impact of her decision.”

  10. On my page I shared the first line from Heather Day Gilbert’s “God’s Daughter” a fantastic story rich in viking history. I would highly recommend the book to anyone who enjoys Historical Fiction.

    I’ll share here an old favorite of mine “Heidi”
    From the old and pleasantly situated village of Mayenfeld, a footpath winds through green and shady meadows to the food of the mountains, which on this side look down from their stern and lofty heights upon the valley below.
