First Line Fridays is a weekly feature over at Wandering Words where you put the first few lines of a book in order to get your readers hooked, then show them which book it is!
This week’s first lines are:
The shop sits on a busy street in the cool downtown neighborhood of Portland, Maine. Larsen and Sons Tattoo Parlor is written on the window in elegant script. Inside, music plays, two guys lounge on a green velvet chaise flicking through books. It’s all very clean and neat and awesome looking. And there’s a sound like an electric drill in the air.
The girl behind the counter stops, mouth gaping when she sees me. She’s pretty and petite with a shaved head.
“Hi,” I say attempting a smile. “Can I speak to–“
“Are you fucking kidding me,” a deep voice booms.
Do you recognize those lines?
They’re from Repeat by Kylie Scott! Did you get it?
When a vicious attack leaves 25-year-old Clementine Johns with no memory, she’s forced to start over. Now she has to figure out who she was and why she made the choices she did – which includes leaving the supposed love of her life, tattoo artist Ed Larsen, only a month before.
Ed can hardly believe it when his ex shows up at his tattoo parlor with no memory of their past, asking about the breakup that nearly destroyed him. The last thing he needs is more heartache, but he can’t seem to let her go again. Should they walk away for good, or does their love deserve a repeat performance?
