Book Beginnings + Friday 56: Count Me In by Mikal Dawn

Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader that asks you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you're reading.

Friday 56 is hosted by Freda's Voice and asks you to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your ereader and share a non-spoilery sentence or two.

This week I'm featuring Count Me In by Mikal Dawn


Book Beginning

The little hairs on the back of Allegra Spencer's neck stood at attention. He was behind her. She could feel his presence as sure as she could smell the beans being ground by the barista on the other side of the reclaimed-wood counter.


Friday 56 (56% on my Kindle)

Allegra's face was white as a ghost. Her mouth moved, but no sound came out.


About the Book

Allegra Spencer has been living a careful life. Her safe job as an accountant is bookended by going to church and the gym. Okay, sometimes the gym. Fine. She goes to church. And the coffee shop. She avoids risk at all cost, preferring to stay safe in her cozy condo. Until her accounting firm goes belly up and she's out of a job.

Tyler Hawk had a glorious career as a star NFL tight end. He retired on a high note and now lives a second dream of owning his own business and leading others on extreme outdoor adventures. But he needs help with his books—and his heart. When Allegra takes the job, sparks fly.

It’s a case of safety zone versus danger zone, and in their minds, never the two shall meet.

  2. Sounds good. I like romances where the main characters are really different. I'm reading White Hot by Ilona Andrews this week. Happy reading!

  4. Oh, it's interesting how events turn people on safe paths into risk-takers. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “HERE & GONE”

    1. It really is interesting to see what the catalyst is that makes them take a chance they normally never would and to see the outcome.
