Wednesday has once again arrived and with it, a new #1lineWed prompt. Today? It’s all about the first line. If you’re on Twitter, go search out the #1lineWed hashtag. Since I normally post a snippet to go along with my “chosen” 1 line, I thought I’d try something different and bizarre today. I’m going to tell you the story of NIGHT MOVES using the first lines of every chapter. Fun times, right?!?! So, here in a nutshell, is Hollywood and Lainey’s story, narrated in 1st person, more or less alternating between the two of them.
No bimbo has ever slept in my bed.
I hitched my messenger bag higher on my shoulder and stared at the front entrance.
Digger and I met up with Deadhead and a couple of his boys at a truck stop outside of Topeka.
Gazing at the full-length mirror in the dancers’ dressing room, I was pretty darn impressed with my seamstress skills.
I walked through the door and was checking out the crowd when a flash of blue teased the corner of my vision.
Digger, Easy, and I had been on the road for a week.
I had a bad feeling about this.
I was going fucking insane and it was just a matter of time before Hardy cold-cocked me as I paced by him.
My wolf knew there was in intruder before I did.
The Russian’s eyes flared.
I sniffled and pushed back from Wood.
I didn’t wait for a wheelchair, a nurse, none of that shit.
Lainey’s scream hurt my ears and eviscerated my heart.
I should have left the Twin Terrors with Sam.
I should have taken Lainey home but she wasn’t safe there.
Hollywood going down beneath a pile of Nightriders was the last glimpse I had of him.
I was about two seconds from going rogue.
Lainey tossed her left arm up in frustration.
Lainey gasped and Gravedigger had to pry my fingers from her skin.
I came awake with muscles twitching, unable to breathe, and terrified.
The good news was, I was healing.
I’m a little gobsmacked because yeah…that’s pretty much their story. Except…y’all really want to read all the action and good stuff that happens between the lines. I’m still looking at June 1st release. Now, what about y’all? Any first lines to share?
