My choice this week for Book Beginnings and Friday 56 will be Summer Days by Susan Mallery. I will also be giving away a print copy of this book at the end of the post.
ONLY in Fool's Gold would a Mercedes be brought to a stop by a goat. Rafe Stryker turned off the engine of the powerful sedan and climbed out. The goat in the middle of the road surveyed him with a confident gleam in her dark eyes. If he hadn't known better, he would have sworn she was telling him this was her road and if anyone was going to back down in this battle of wills, it would be him.
My Thoughts: Already this book is off to a fun start, this scene with a goat made me laugh.
The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda at Freda's Voice. To play along:
- Grab the book closest to you, any book will do.
- Turn to page 56.
- Choose the fifth (5th) sentence or a few more (just don't spoil it too much).

- Link your post to Freda's Voice.
My 56 is also from Summer Days by Susan Mallery:
Heidi took in Rafe's well tailored suit and expensive shoes. Even if she ignored them, there was still the man himself. Everything about him screamed stubborn and arrogant. Sure he was handsome, and it would be easy to get lost in his dark eyes, but she had a feeling falling under his spell would be a lot like a rabbit getting mesmerized by a cobra.
My Thoughts: I have to admit, Rafe sounds yummy ....well except about the stubborn and arrogant part...lol
