First Line Friday # 45 – Acceptable Risk by Lynette Eason

Hi Readers! I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far.

I’m so sorry for not posting as much this month (I haven’t posted in about three weeks!?!), but I know that there’s been some amazing books that have come out. So this week, I wanted to show you a book that I pre-ordered as soon as it came out, because it’s by one of my favorite authors – so, without further ado, here’s the first line (actually, first few lines) from Acceptable Risk by Lynette Eason!


The pain compelled her – No… propelled her. It had to end. Living this way wasn’t living.

First three lines of Acceptable Risk by Lynette Eason

From The Back Cover

Sarah Denning is a military journalist with the Army in the Middle East when her convoy is attacked and she’s taken hostage. When former Army Ranger Gavin Black is asked by his old unit commander–Sarah’s imposing father–to plan an extremely risky rescue, he reluctantly agrees and successfully executes it.

Back in the US, Sarah is livid when she’s discharged on a false psychiatric evaluation and vows to return to the Army. Until she learns of her brother’s suicide. Unable to believe her brother would do such a thing, she puts her plans on hold and enlists Gavin to help her discover the truth. What they uncover may be the biggest story of Sarah’s career–if she can survive long enough to write it.

Strap in for another breakneck nail-biter from bestselling romantic suspense author Lynette Eason that will have you up turning pages long into the night.

  1. Happy Friday! 🙂
    I’m currently reading A Life Once Dreamed by Rachel Fordham. I’m on chapter seven so I’ll share the first line from there:
    “Sam Landon made his way over to the schoolhouse, toolbox in one hand, lunch tin in the other.”
    I hope you have an excellent weekend! 🙂❤📚
