It’s First Line Friday time again, and I have been dying to share this book with you. It releases on 8 February, and I reviewed it right here yesterday! It’s Begin Again, by Crystal Walton, and I just have to say, if you love banter, you’re going to love Ti and Drew. And I’m going to physically restrain myself now before I launch into a total rehash of my review!
I also have some super good news: It’s currently available for pre-order for just $0.99 on Kindle. How good is that? Too good to pass up, I’d say! 😉
Okay, before I get any more carried away, let’s get back to business! And just because I love this book so much (and couldn’t decide which first line was better) I’m going to give you the first line from the Prologue AND Chapter One!
Cracks of thunder over the Pamlico Sound had nothing on the adrenaline pounding in Drew Anderson’s ears.
The waves pulsing against Ocracoke’s shoreline echoed every reason Drew Anderson should turn away from this door.

~ About Begin Again ~
What happens when a free-spirited artist from big-city New York collides with an uptight business owner from small-town Ocracoke? Fireworks. The kind neither saw coming.
A single call is all it takes to drive artist Ti Russo into what she does best. Run. But hey, lying low in a beach town for a while isn’t so bad. Thanks to the distraction of playing consultant to a guy she’s determined to crack, she can almost forget about the past stalking her back home. But she never counted on the real danger being a picket-fenced life she has no business falling for.
Focus and self-preservation have gotten single dad Drew Anderson through the last nine years. With the threat of his shop’s foreclosure jeopardizing his daughter’s health care, the last thing he needs is a distracting hippie chick swooping in to shake up what he’s fought to protect. Including himself. The bank’s deadline adds enough pressure without re-risking feelings better left buried.
But as sparks flare and secrets escalate, the race against time propels Ti and Drew into a choice neither’s ready to make: Find the faith to surrender their past or forfeit their only chance to begin again.
