First Line Friday

First Line Friday | Week 78 | Maybe It’s You by Christy Hayes

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 Maybe It’s You by Christy Hayes:

First line from Maybe It's You by Christy Hayes - Reagan Bellamy picked the wrong night to wear the right boots.

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

About Maybe It’s You

Reagan Bellamy’s neighbor is everything she never wanted. Despite her best efforts to ignore him and fly under his radar, Dash Carter refuses to wither under her stare and leave her alone. So what if he’s totally hot? Who cares if her roommates think he’s adorable? Reagan’s too busy to waste time on a loser with musical pipe dreams. Between classes, studies, and her need to stay ahead of the game, she’s got too much on her plate to give him the time of day.

Dash Carter is a man on a mission. He’s done a total 180 and for the first time in a long time feels optimistic about the future. He’s clean, he’s on a good path, and he’s surrounded himself with people who make life better, not worse. Unfortunately, his neighbor—the one girl who’s always piqued his interest—still thinks he’s a slacker, bothering Dash more than it should.

Acting on an opportunity to show Reagan he’s a changed man, Dash inadvertently puts her in a difficult position with her new boss and sends her down a path she hasn’t the time or inclination to pursue. Desperate to make things right, Dash becomes more invested in her life despite warnings from his mentor to not get involved with someone whose beliefs don’t match his own.

Reagan’s not sure what it says about her that she’d rather deal with Dash the deadbeat than Dash the Bible thumper. The more she digs her heels in against the religious freaks she’s forced to interact with, the more she begins to question everything she’s built her life upon. When the tide begins to turn in Reagan’s heart and her worldview flips upside down, trusting God means putting everything on the line, including her heart.

  1. Happy first Friday of February 💕

    I shared the first few lines of Tara Conklin’s upcoming novel “The Last Romantics” on my blog today. I am only about 47% into the book so, here, I’ll share to you the first lines of the chapter I’m currently on.

    “With Will gone I searched in earnest for Noni, worrying that she had seen us speaking and that I would be forced to explain. Noni did not recognize boundaries when it came to us, her daughters, our skin problems or boyfriends or job prospects. Her questions were always frank and pointed, designed to elicit answers that contained enough salient information for her critique. Dodging Noni’s questions had become a sport for my sisters and me, a verbal tennis match with Noni always retaining the serve. I could only imagine what she’d do with Will and the kiss he’d delivered.”

    I hope you enjoy those lines. Have a weekend full of great reads! 😀

    Cute line. I shared from Never Let Go by Elizabeth Goddard on my blog, but here I will share from Between Two Shores by Jocelyn Green — “I told you, I’m not staying.” Have a wonderful weekend!

    Great minds think alike! I shared this one too :).

    I’m currently reading The Secret of Willow Inn by Pat Nichols. Here’s the first line: As far back as Emily Hayes could remember, her heart yearned for a sister.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. I like that first line!

    Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I’m sharing the first line from The Christmas Remedy by Cindy Woodsmall and Erin Woodsmall. It’s a sweet little book if you haven’t read it yet. I’m currently starting The Seamstress by Allison Pittman, so I’ll share the first line from this book.

    “My first and last memories are my cousin Laurette.”

    I’m very excited to read this book!

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 😀❤📚

  5. That’s a cute first line. 🙂 On my blog, I’m sharing a book by the late Ruth Bell Graham called Prodigals and Those Who Love Them. Here, I will share a line from Chapter 5 of that book, which is Gigi Graham Tchividjian’s story. “At times the Lord had to gently remind me to deal with my son as He deals with His children: to keep the doors of communication always open, to accept the person, even when I could not accept his actions and conduct.” I wish you a warm and wonderful weekend!

  6. Happy Friday!
    On my blog today I’m sharing the first line from True Nobility by Lori Bates Wright but I have no extra line to share right now b/c I’m currently in-between books and getting ready to head out to Snow Camp with the youth group. Brrrrr! Hope you have a great weekend!

    Happy Weekend! My first line (well, first 2 lines) is from “Ellie’s Redemption” by Molly Jebber:

    “Ellie Graber glanced at Joel Wenger across the room. Her heart raced, and her cheeks warmed.”
