First Lines Fridays (7) – 5/28/2021

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?

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

Today’s First Lines:

“”Nicky, yes,” Seth Gray groaned, and Nick had never been prouder of himself in his entire life. Granted, he’d also never been more turned-on, and he couldn’t quite focus because all the blood had left his brain and traveled south, but still. Hearing his name come from Seth’s mouth in that way was apparently enough to fry all the remaining circuits in Nicholas Bell’s brain.”

Flash Fire is the explosive sequel to The Extraordinaries by USA Today bestselling author TJ Klune!

Thoughts & Comments

I was so excited to get an eARC of this from NetGalley. I was approved while in the middle of reading The Extraordinaries, and I almost jumped for joy. I can’t wait to start this one, and if the first sentences are anything to go by, it seems this book will be getting steamier in the romance department while still being snarky and hilarious. Check out my review for the first book in this series, The Extraordinaries, here!

Does this book sound like something you would like? Why or why not? Let me know in the comments!
