First Lines Fridays — Can you guess the book?

Posted July 1, 2016 by FMA in First Lines Fridays



❝I wondered if the vibration would feel good between my legs.❞

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. Here are the rules:

  • 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!

Please comment below or tag me in the post, so I can check it out!

Cocky Bastard by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland: Amazon

He was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska.

A sexy, cocky, Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive.

When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually-tense nights in hotels and taking unplanned detours.

My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense.

I wanted him, but Chance wouldn’t make a move. I thought he wanted me too, but something was holding him back.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for the cocky bastard, especially when I knew we’d be going our separate ways.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Author’s note – Cocky Bastard is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.


I loved it! I both listened to the audio and read ‘Cocky Bastard’ (You can read my reviews here). I started the audio while driving back home from visiting my daughter in college. I was leaving my baby and I was sad. But it was the best 3.5 hour drive I’ve had … must note, I was not a fan of the narrartors, but of the story … The story was humorous, sexy, tender and had heart. I found the writing engaging and addictive. I needed a feel-good book and this was it! So not what I expected, but so glad it wasn’t all the same! This reminds me, I need to find another book written by them, stat!
