❝I felt the covers slide down my body then a hand light on the small of my back. It was so warm it was hot, like the blood that ran through its veins went faster than the blood of any average man.❞
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!

Night time is the right time…
Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He’s hot, he’s sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it’s a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he’s the one, she just can’t turn him away…
Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She’s gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone. Yet when Gwen is drawn into Denver’s lethal underground scene, Hawk’s protective nature comes out full force. The problem is, when Gwen gets a dose of Hawk’s Alpha attitude in the daylight, she’s not so sure he’s the one anymore….
Mystery Man is such a great book! I mean what is better than the panty melting HAWK DELGADO? This man is the ultimate. He’s Alpha to his core, a protector, sexy and commanding in the bedroom (and outside of it).
“Tonight, you in a little black dress and high heels, I’ll be there at seven thirty.”
“Are you asking me out on a date?”
“Sweet Pea, I’ve been f*ckin’ you for a year and a half.”
“So no, I’m not askin’. I’m tellin’. You, dress, heels, I’ll be there at seven thirty.”
“So you’re not asking me out on a date, you’re telling me we’re going on a date?”
“That’s about it.”
“You can’t tell me we’re going out on a date.”
“Just did, babe.”
It is funny, sexy and mysterious. Did I mention sexy? Love it. If you haven’t yet read this book, do! I defy you to not like it.
