First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intro and Teaser Tuesdays

Tuesday, 1 July 2014

First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intro is hosted by Diane at Bibliophile By The Sea.

This is how it works: Write down either the first paragraph of a book your are currently reading / intending to read or read in the past and share with us. I do like a good opening!

This is the next book I am going to start in a couple of days:

The Groundbreaking (Love under Construction Series prequel) by Deandra Hall



The introductory volume to the Love Under Construction Series, this quick read introduces you to the major characters in the series. The books within the series are not stand-alone, and reading this one will help the reader understand them better. All other books in this series are full-length novels.


Meet the Walters family of Louisville, Kentucky, and their extended family and friends. This introductory volume introduces the reader to the major characters in the series and gives some insight into what makes them who they are in a series of vignettes from their pasts. From Tony, the owner of the family construction business who's still dealing with his mentally-unstable ex-wife, to Steve, his attorney who also owns a security firm (and a BDSM club too) while he holds everyone at arms-length, to a widow, Nikki, who thinks her life is pretty well over, there's plenty of drama, fun, and white-hot, sex-filled romance to keep readers entertained for hours. There's Kelly, working in the insurance industry while no one knows her past; Jose, a former cage fighter-turned-personal security specialist; and Molly, a woman spurned in the worst of ways. Laura's clothes cover a painful secret that could get her killed, and Peyton, the wholesome boy next door, struggles with an injury from his service in Kandahar. And don't forget Vic, Tony's cousin and the manager of the construction company's Lexington office, who's six feet and eight inches of the hottest Italian the United States was lucky enough to find on their shores. This introductory work introduces readers to the major characters in the series and is a quick read; the four volumes to follow are full-length novels. None of the volumes are stand-alone and are written to be read in order to get the most enjoyment from them. Use The Groundbreaking as your portal - jump in and find out who lives, who dies, and who finds the love of their life. It's a rollicking good time, between the sheets and out!

First paragraph:

Welcome to the Commonwealth of Kentucky!
The city of Louisville, Kentucky, occupies four hundred square miles of riverfront property on the Ohio River. Even though the city also knows as "The Ville" or "da Ville" doesn't seem like a southern city, it is physically below the Mason-Dixon line, the imaginary line of demarcation for the southern states. Most of its residents sincerely consider themselves southerners, and they will let you know in no uncertain terms. 





Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should be reading. 
These are the rules  :
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This sounds like it has potential. I'd definitely be interested in reading a little more. Hope you enjoy it!

Sounds like a tv soap, and that's not a bad thing. Or like the show Dallas, a large extended family with all kinds of secrets. Enjoy it.

My first thought was the same as Rita's. This sounds like a soap opera. I hope you are enjoying the book and the series.

Yvonne said...

This sounds like a book I'd like to read. Lovely cover too.

Pat @ Posting For Now said...

This sounds really enjoyable, but I don't usually read series unless I hear a lot of great buzz about them first. I hope you enjoy this one.

My youngest daughter lives in the Louisville area. I'd like to read this one and I'm going to recommend it to her. Thanks.
