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? If you want to make your own post, follow the rules below:
- 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!
If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!

Obsession by Cassie Hargrove and Story Brooks
Author: Cassie Hargrove and Story Brooks
Publication Date: November 10, 2021
This is our town. We are the ones who ultimately decide whether you live or die, so be careful what sins you commit.
We’re the Deadly Seven, the rejects of this town and we represent death to anyone who crosses a line we deem unacceptable.
When she shows up in our town like some innocent avenging Angel, we don’t know what to think…so we watch. And the more we watch, the more obsessed we become.
I’ve been on the run for the past four years. My Dad has done everything in his power to keep me hidden from the man who wants to destroy me, but you can only run for so long before you have to stop.
Officially in Witness Protection, this is supposed to be my chance to finally have a normal life…but nothing is ever foolproof.
If you think it is, you’re naive.
I know I’m being watched. I can feel eyes on me every second of every day. I don’t think I’m as safe here as they want us to believe…
*This is book 1 in a 4 book series that must be read in order.*
**Dark Romance with stalking, non/con, dub/con and much much more. Read TW before attempting to read this series!**
***This is a reverse harem romance where the main character ends up with 3+ men. In this case, 7. If that isn’t your thing then this series is not the right one for you. This book will also contain M/M scenes.***
