First Line Friday — The Love Script

11 Aug

Happy Friday! I have been in Virginia all week visiting my newest grandbaby. Love those baby snuggles, but hate that we live so far from each other. 🙁 In honor of my Virginia family, I am sharing a first line from a Virginia author, Toni Shiloh. Her newest contemporary romance, The Love Script, released just a couple of weeks ago. I cannot wait to read it!

Here’s the first line:

The wind whipped through the car’s sunroof, the sound competing with a serenade by H.E.R. on the R&B station as I drove down Goldwater Canyon.

A Hollywood hair stylist. 

Nevaeh Richards loves making those in the spotlight shine but prefers the anonymity of staying behind her stylist chair, where no one notices her. But when a photo of Nevaeh and Hollywood A-lister Lamont Booker goes viral for all the wrong reasons, her quiet life becomes the number-one trending topic. 

The silver screen’s latest heartthrob

Lamont Booker’s bold faith has gained him a platform, and the authenticity of his faith is well known . . . until the tabloids cause the world to question everything he claims to be. With his reputation on the line, he finds himself hearing out his agent’s push for a fake relationship–something he never thought he’d consider in a million years.

A love that goes off script.

With their careers at risk, Nevaeh and Lamont have to convince the world that their scripted romance is more than just an act. But when fake seems to turn into something real, can Nevaeh trust her heart in a world where nothing is ever as it seems?
