the love script | first line friday + the friday 56

first line friday is hosted weekly by reading is my superpower.
book beginnings is hosted weekly by rose city reader.
the friday 56 is hosted weekly by my head is full of books.

happy friday!

i might not have a ton of reading time this weekend, but i'm hoping to get to this one from toni shiloh. (i've heard so many good things.)

first line: the wind whipped through the car's sunroof, the sound competing with a serenade by h.e.r. on the r&b station as i drove down coldwater canyon.

page 56: "fellas, is it ridiculous to think a fake relationship will solve all my problems?"

about the book

A Hollywood hair stylist.

Nevaeh Richards loves making those in the spotlight shine but prefers the anonymity of staying behind her stylist chair, where no one notices her. But when a photo of Nevaeh and Hollywood A-lister Lamont Booker goes viral for all the wrong reasons, her quiet life becomes the number-one trending topic.

The silver screen's latest heartthrob.

Lamont Booker's bold faith has gained him a platform, and the authenticity of his faith is well known . . . until the tabloids cause the world to question everything he claims to be. With his reputation on the line, he finds himself hearing out his agent's push for a fake relationship--something he never thought he'd consider in a million years.

A love that goes off script.

With their careers at risk, Nevaeh and Lamont have to convince the world that their scripted romance is more than just an act. But when fake seems to turn into something real, can Nevaeh trust her heart in a world where nothing is ever as it seems?

now, feel free to leave a line from a book near you in the comments below.

  2. I agree with Lauren. That pg.56 quote invites me to read on.
