First Line Fridays: Simply Starstruck by Aspen Hadley

Happy Friday!

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books and participants share the first line from a nearby book.

Today I'm sharing the first lines from Simply Starstruck by Aspen Hadley:

"It's funny in life how you never recognize a big moment when it's actually happening."

What are you reading this weekend?

Have a great weekend! Happy reading!

About the Book:

Dating isn't just complicated . . . it's confusing!  Especially when you've got a gift for landing yourself in interesting situations.

It's been two years since Kate Evans unexpectedly lost her husband Charlie.  One year since her Aunt Cassandra showed upon her doorstep, said enough was enough, and packed Kate and her son back to Colorado to live in her guest cottage.

Just when Kate is starting to get comfortable in her new reality, three very different men enter her life.  Alec is young, easy going and up for anything.  Nate is a divorced dad who is steady,reliable and everything Kate should want.Jess is quite literally the boy next door, not to mention a real life movie star straight from every girl's dreams.

Is she really ready to jump into the dating scene again?  Or does she stay in the same safe place free from heartache?  From roller skates to croquet games and art galleries, Kate's journey is anything but predictable.  Through it all Kate is forced to confront things she'd rather leave buried, along with the possibility of a new love that is exactly what she needs.

    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Telegraph Proposal by Becca Whitham and Gina Welborn but I'm currently reading Aiming for Love by Mary Connealy so I'll share the first line from my current chapter (7) here: "Jo turned back to Dave to see him shake his head." Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!
