“Your skirt’s tucked into your underwear.” Bea MacLaren jolted at the familiar male voice, spilling the water in her glass onto the worn carpet of the Walungurru Bowls Club.


my thoughts

Bea and Harry’s loathe/love relationship is all fuss and sparks and I adore their heated frienemies romance! This sassy short packs a storytelling punch with a kiss that most definitely deserves mention in the title. I have no doubt I’ll find opportunities to read this story over and over again and my enjoyment of this teeny story greatly increases my already high anticipation of the author’s future work!

I received an ebook copy of this title through the author’s newsletter. The opinions expressed are my own.

  1. On my blog today, I am featuring a nonfiction, Leveling the Praying Field by Donna L. Barrett. Since it’s my current read, I will share the first line in Chapter 4 here: When circumstances turn out the way a person asked in prayer, they’ll often say, “Prayer works.” Think of prayer as a telephone, a communication device. What really matters is who is on the other end of the line.

    I hope you will have a wonderful weekend!


  2. If the rancid coffee was an indication of the day ahead, perhaps Joy Kelliher should have stayed in bed.

  3. Happy Friday! Today on my blog I shared the first line from Shades of Light by Sharon Garlough Brown but I’m currently reading My Dearest Dietrich by Amanda Barratt so I’ll share the first line from chapter 7 here: “Like a rent in fabric formerly whole, the wake of her vater’s absence yawned wide and gaping.” Hope you have a great weekend!


  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from Finders Keepers by Sarah Monzon: It’s such a good book. Currently, I am reading book 2 in the series, All of You, so I will share a line from there.

    “England, 1944
    The gangplank bounced under the weight of passengers disembarking the large transatlantic liner — a veritable Goliath to the small David-like tugboats dotting the harbor.”

    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!


  5. Happy Friday! I’m sharing from Belinda Blake and the Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing by Heather Day Gilbert on my blog today, so here is another line from the first page:

    “I cozied up on my blue couch, setting my warm mug of Arabica coffee on the low table in front of me.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!


  6. My first line is from The Spice King by Elizabeth Camden

    May 1900 Washington D.C.
    Annabelle Larkin hadn’t meant to offend the world’s leading spice tycoon with her bold request, yet it seemed she had.


  7. My first line comes from A Reluctant Belle by Beth White — Tree limbs slapped Joelle’s face as she ran through the woods behind the bathhouse.

    Hope you have a great weekend!
