First Line Friday

First Line Friday | Week 82 | Managing the Rock Star

It’s First Line Friday! That means it’s time to pick up the nearest book and quote the first line. Today I’m sharing from Managing the Rock Star by Emma St. Clair:

First Line from Managing the Rock Star: If Sterling James had one more girl ask him to sign one of her body parts, he was leaving this meet-and-greet event. Period.

I know the cover isn’t typical Christian fiction, but the story is clean and has a faith aspect, and it’s funny. Think Becky Wade or Kara Isaac or Elizabeth Maddrey.

What’s the book nearest you, and what’s the first line?

About Managing the Rock Star

He was her rock star crush, then became her boss. When he wants to be more, things are bound to get complicated.

Reese Montgomery is a sought-after social media strategist, but fixing the PR mess of her teenage crush, rock star Sterling James might be too much. After a terrible first impression, her job is under threat and Reese needs to be a complete professional. Even when her feelings are anything BUT.

Rock star Sterling James is at a turning point in his career, but his negative image may hold him back. Hiring a social media strategist won’t change his emotional family crisis, but can hopefully help him put on a better public face. But he has little faith in Reese, at least at first. As she continues to prove herself, Sterling has another problem: he is falling hard for the sweet, scheming woman sharing his tour bus.

When his family problems come to a head at the same time as a PR nightmare, both Reese and Sterling will have a crisis of faith and a choice to make: career or love?

    My first line is from chapter nine of The White City by Grace Hitchcock:
    Winnifred paused at the corner of South Wallace Street and 63rd and drew a ragged breath as she smoothed down the front of her flawless navy skirt, trying to summon her nerve and ignore her misgivings.

  2. Beckie B. says:

    Well, okay! Interesting first line! Mine comes from my current read, Miriam by Mesu Andrews. “I am Miriam, old but of use.” Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Sounds like a good book!

    Happy Friday!

    I’ve shared the first line from The Deceived by Kelly Harrel over on my blog. But, I am currently reading Of Fire and Lions by Mesu Andrews. OH. MY. WORD! Is this book AMAZING!!!! I’m just starting chapter 12, so I will leave the first line from there.

    “Babylon’s coolest months were warmer than Jerusalem’s winter, and my small world of friendships was warmer still.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! 😊💜📚

    Happy Friday & Happy Weekend! My first line is from “The Curse of Misty Wayfair” by Jaime Jo Wright:

    “Melancholy was a condition of the spirit and the soul, but also of the mind.”

  5. On my blog this week I shared the first line from Uninvited by Beckie Lindsay but I’m currently reading Vivir el Dream by Allison K Garcia (Yes, it’s written in *mostly* English but anything in Spanish shares the translation). I’ll share the first line from my current chapter (6) here: “Linda grumbled as she changed from her pajamas into jeans and a t-shirt.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time! 🙂
