Friday Reads 23rd September 2016

Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice and Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. The idea is to share a sentence or so from the first page and the 56th page of the book you are currently reading! 

Hard Rules (Dirty Money, #1)

Book Beginning:

"Tequila and tonic number two," I say, setting the drink on top of a Martina's Casa napkin for the dark, good-looking stranger who'd come in asking for my brother."

Friday 56:

"Don't let the universe decide what it means. Don't let it have that power. And don't let what you want get away from you."

I am currently about 60 pages in to Hard Rules and I am enjoying it but I am not exactly blown away by it yet. But maybe things will pick up soon and I'd really like to know more about "Emily's" background.

You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading
