First Lines Friday #52

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?  If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:

  • 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 (I cheat a little bit here *cough*)
  • Finally… reveal the book!

If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!

Let’s see if the first few lines can get me even more excited!

The Line(s):

Diaries were horribly organized and awfully prescriptive. They involved dates and plans and regular entries and the suffocating weight of commitment. Journals, on the other hand, were deliciously wild and lawless things.”

The Hints:

Though I’m sure it’s fairly obvious what this is, it’s the last book in a romance trilogy.

It follows the youngest sibling’s route to love.

And, if it’s anything like the first two books in this series, it’s going to get quite steamy!

The Reveal:
