Book Beginnings on Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader. Every Friday we share the first sentence (or so) of the book we’re currently reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
My Book Beginning:
Revenge for Hire (For Hire #2) by Natalie S. Ellis
Near West Side, Chicago
The first blast of music jerked Chris Panyard from a 3 am fog. Stupid ringtone. His hand felt like a dead weight as it flopped around the nightstand to locate his cell as the second round of music blared. Finally on the third round, he managed to fumble the smartphone into his palm and swipe the screen.
My Thoughts: This is a book I'm reading for review at a later time. I’m going to guess that Chris is not going to be a happy camper and that it better be a really important phone call. I know when people have called my house and I haven’t gotten up yet – somebody better be bleeding….lol

My 56 (Also from Revenge for Hire):
“I don’t make you nervous, do I?” Voss asked, the ever-present thread of mockery in his voice.
She felt his knowing smile more than saw it.
My Thoughts: Things are definitely heating up between these two!
About Revenge for Hire by Natalie S. Ellis
With a young girl's life on the line, can Billie and Nolan work together to save her while keeping their attraction to each other at bay?
North West Side Chicago. A man's phone rings at 3am, and it's every father's worst nightmare - his little girl is in danger.
Fort Wayne, Indiana. Belinda 'Billie' Chapman is working the overnight shift at WVOX-TV when she's called away to photograph a car that's crashed into the second story of a house. But when a little girl is spotted in the house across the street, the aggressive behaviour of her guardian piques Billie's curiosity.
Nolan Voss has come to Fort Wayne to check on WVOX-TV, the station he owns. Rich, uptight and deliciously hot, he can't keep away from the fiery Billie, and that means being dragged into her plan to help the young girl.
Each step closer to finding the truth leads them to a dangerous plot that has come all the way from Chicago. Will the danger only fuel their irresistible attraction to one another? Or will one of them get burned?
Don't forget to post your meme's and link up at both host locations.
Have a great Friday!
