First Line Friday is a bookish meme hosted by Hoarding Books where you post the first line of a book.
This week I’m spotlighting a book that I’ve actually read, The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory! This is the first book in a series of romance novels that can be read as standalones. I think the series is a lot of fun, and I’m looking forward to reading the fifth book later this year.
The First Line(s)
“Alexa Monroe walked into the Fairmont hotel in San Francisco that Thursday night wearing her favourite red heels, feeling jittery from coffee, and carrying a bottle of Veuve Clicquot champagne in her purse.”
About the Book (From Goodreads):
“A groomsman and his last-minute guest are about to discover if a fake date can go the distance in a fun and flirty debut novel.
Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn’t normally do. But there’s something about Drew Nichols that’s too hard to resist.
On the eve of his ex’s wedding festivities, Drew is minus a plus one. Until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend…
After Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkeley, where she’s the mayor’s chief of staff. Too bad they can’t stop thinking about the other…
They’re just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long distance dating disaster of the century–or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want…”

I really love that cover. So pretty!
Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first couple of lines from Molly by Sarah Monzon: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2020/07/03/first-line-friday-142/. I’m currently on chapter 6, so I will share from there.
“An eighty-hour work week — that’s all the hospital was allowed to work the interns and residents per the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. But when I’d gently reminded Dr. Feinburg of that fact after he’d assigned me to continue care for the patient admitted earlier, I’d been loudly and matter-of-factly put in my place.”
Hope you have a great weekend filled with family fun and relaxing reading time. 😀❤📚
