First Line Fridays: The Way of the Brave by Susan May Warren

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 line from The Way of the Brave by Susan May Warren:

"He should have never left Alaska."

Have you read this book? Book blurb below and you can read my review here. Book two in the series, The Heart of a Hero, is coming soon!

What are you reading this weekend? I'd love for you to share your book's first line!

Happy reading!

About the Book:

Former pararescue jumper Orion Starr is haunted by the memory of a rescue gone wrong. He may be living alone in Alaska now, but the pain of his failure--and his injuries--has followed him there from Afghanistan. He has no desire to join Hamilton Jones's elite rescue team, but he also can't shirk his duty when the call comes in to rescue three lost climbers on Denali.

Former CIA profiler and psychiatrist Jenny Calhoun's yearly extreme challenge with her best friends is her only escape from the guilt that has sunk its claws into her. As a consultant during a top-secret mission to root out the Taliban, she green-lighted an operation that ended in ambush and lives lost. When her cathartic climb on Denali turns deadly, she'll be forced to trust her life and the lives of her friends to the most dangerous of heroes--the man she nearly killed.

Her skills and his experience are exactly what's needed to prevent another tragedy--but in order to truly set Orion free from his painful past, Jenny will have to reveal hers. They'll have to put their wounds behind them to survive, but at what cost?

Leap into action with this high-octane, breakneck new series from bestselling author Susan May Warren.

  1. Happy Friday!

    I'm really looking forward to reading book two in this series, hopefully this month.

    My first line on my blog this week comes from Becky Wade's Stay With Me:

    "The hallway floor jolts downward beneath my feet, throwing me off balance."

    Hope you have a great weekend :)

  2. What an interesting line!! Happy Friday!

  3. I LOVED this one! Can't wait for The Heart of a Hero! ;)

    Today on my blog, I'm sharing from The Water Keeper by Charles Martin. I just started reading Becoming Mrs. Lewis by Patti Callahan Henry; here's the first line: "From the very beginning it was the Great Lion who brought us together."

    Have a great weekend! Happy reading!

  4. My first line is from a WWII book by Anne Greene: Angel With Steel Wings:
    December 1943- Camp Davis, North Carolina
    “Bad weather. Bad plane. Bad day. And I have a bad feeling.”

  5. Happy Friday! 🙂
    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Unveiling the Past by Kim Vogel Sawyer. I’m currently reading Masquerade at Middlecrest Abbey by Abigail Wilson. It’s awesome!!! I’ll share a line from chapter 3 here.
    “As with so many previous events in my life, my marriage proved the complete opposite of my dreams.”
    Isn’t that a fantastic line? The novel is filled with lines like this. So good!
    Have a great weekend! 🙂💚📚

  6. Happy Friday!

    I love Susan May Warren...but I haven't read any of her newer stuff.

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line form She Walks in Beauty by Siri Mitchell.
    “Get Dressed, Clara.”

    Happy Weekend!

  7. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from Hadley Beckett's Next Dish by Bethany Turner, but it's also my current read so I'll share the first line from where I'm at right now (chapter 18) here: "What was I thinking? What was I thinking? What was I thinking?" I'm loving the witty humor all throughout this one.
    Happy reading!
