First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intros: Someone Else’s Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson

First Chapter First Paragraph

Every Tuesday fellow blogger Bibliophile By the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where bloggers share the first paragraph of the book they are currently reading or thinking about reading soon.

Someone Else's Love Story, Joshilyn Jackson

I am currently reading Joshilyn Jackson’s Someone Else’s Love Story…and it has quite a first paragraph. Well, quite a first sentence for that matter:

 “I fell in love with William Ashe at gunpoint, in a Circle K. It was on a Friday afternoon at the tail end of a Georgia summer so ungodly hot the air felt like it had all been boiled red. We were both staring down the barrel of an ancient, creaky .32 that could kill us just as dead as a really nice gun could.”

Stay tuned for my full review…

      I have now finished the book and it was SO good! My only issue now is that I have so much to say about it that would spoil the story, so can’t that stuff in my review 🙁
