First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?
- Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
- Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
- Finally… reveal the book!
“Tell me again about the fist time the two of you played chess in the park.” Jameson’s face was cadlelit, but even in the scant light, I could see the gleam in his dark green eyes.
There was nothing–and no one–that set Jameson Hawthorne’s blood pumping like a mystery.
This one’s a sequel. Please look away if you don’t want to know.

Series: The Inheritance Games
The Inheritance Games ended with a bombshell, and now heiress Avery Grambs has to pick up the pieces and find the man who might hold the answers to all of her questions – including why Tobias Hawthorne left his entire fortune to Avery, a virtual stranger, rather than to his own daughters or grandsons.
Thanks to a DNA test, Avery knows that she’s not a Hawthorne by blood, but clues pile up hinting at a deeper connection to the family than she had ever imagined. As the mystery grows and the plot thickens, Grayson and Jameson, the enigmatic and magnetic Hawthorne grandsons, continue to pull Avery in different directions. And there are threats lurking around every corner, as adversaries emerge who will stop at nothing to see Avery out of the picture – by any means necessary. (from Goodreads)
Yeah. I did. I had no self-control. As soon as I was done with The Inheritance Games, I immediately jumped to The Hawthorne Legacy. Have you read it already? I’d love to hear what you think! I’m still trying put my thoughts together for a review.
