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?
- 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!

Most embarrassing moment ever? I’ve had a few. One was when I walked down Harborne High Street with my skirt accidentally tucked into my knickers.
Read on to find out which book this extract is from…
Sweet Temptation by Lucy Diamond
INFO | Goodreads
BUY | The Book Depository
Maddie’s getting it from all sides. Her bitchy new boss at the radio station humiliates her live on air about her figure, her glamour-puss mum keeps dropping not-so-subtle hints that Maddie should lose weight and her kids are embarrassed to be seen with her after the disastrous Mums’ race at their school sports day. Something’s got to change…
I got this book second-hand from my friend recently. Lucy Diamond is a name I’ve heard about for a good few years now, but I’ve never actually read anything by her. It’s about time I read another chick lit! Plus, the cover for this book is adorable, and the first lines are hilarious!
