It’s Friday and time for a Friday memes of Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted @ Rose City Reader, First Lines Fridays @ Wandering Words, The Friday 56 hosted @Freda’s Voice. So the idea for this post is to share with you a few first lines from a book that I have decided to feature today, and to share a snippet from page 56 or in case of eBook a sneak peek 56% into the book. Let’s not keep you waiting and look at today’s featured book.
Recently I reread a lighthearted and ridiculously hilarious romantic comedy – Whiskey Chick (Whiskey #2) by Ryan Ringbloom. So I decided to share with you this delightful book to brighten your day as that is something we all need at the moment. *Note. This book is part of a series but can be read as a standalone.
The first lines of the book
Chapter 1 ‘The Legend of Whiskey Chick’ – Adam
“Adam, tell the Whiskey Chick story. Please,” my sister begs with full-on prayer hands. “Katie’s never heard it before,” she says, referring to my cousin’s new girlfriend who’s joining us for family dinner for the first time.
I’ve told the story about a million times, but every time there’s someone new in the mix my sister always asks me to tell the now-famous tale. Not that I really mind; it’s one of my favourite stories. A story I love to tell.
“Oh geez, here we go,” my older brother says under his breath. Henry turns and addresses the newcomer. “Just so you know, we have doubts that this girl really exists. This story is about as credible as a Loch Ness Monster sighting.”
“She exists.” Jenn rolls her eyes at him. “I mean, we’ve never seen her, but she definitely exists.”
Now I’m curious about this famous tale 🙂 Just so you know it was a pretty funny, kind of cute and a bit embarrassing story about a blind date that didn’t exactly go how it should have. And I couldn’t wait to see Adam and Remi meet again.

Chapter 18 A Fair to Remember – Remi
My heart races for so many reasons. The blood in my veins is on a thrill ride of its own, zooming through my body. I’ve experienced fun days before, but the word fun is just not enough to explain what this feels like. This date with Adam is incredible. Nothing like last time. I’m on a bliss-filled high that copious amount of whiskey could never match.
The ride ends way too fast. My bun is a lost cause, and my hair is a mess, errant pieces strewn all over my face, but I don’t care.
“Okay, you were right. That was ridiculously fun.” Adam beams as we make our way off the ride down the little stairs to the exit.
“Where to next?” The big smile across my face matches his. “The Zipper?”
“Wherever you want.” His brown eyes connect wit mine, and I don’t know what comes over me, but I grab his hand. He grins down at me, and palm to palm with our fingers interlocked, we walk over to the next ride.
Is this second date going to end in disaster as well? They are so cute together and I’m rooting for they HEA 🙂

A NIGHT FULL OF HARD FEELINGS
Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. It’s a fluke. Too much whiskey. Believe me when I say, it will NEVER happen again.
I’m trying not to take it personally. Sh*t happens. It was a blind date. She drank too much whiskey. I hope it wasn’t a reflection on me.
Okay, so the first date didn’t work out. But what happens when the second one doesn’t either?
Fate’s a funny thing.
She likes him.
He likes her.
They say the third time’s a charm….
Get ready to laugh, cringe, and swoon as fate blindly intervenes in this lovable Romantic Comedy.
This is a standalone book intended for mature readers.
Thanks for stopping by! This was an embarrassing, ridiculous, disastrous, oh so funny, but also cute and steamy story that made me laugh out loud, giggle a bit, cringe and swoon at times, and shed a tear or two, so I enjoyed it a lot. However, I would have wanted it to be a bit longer, so I could actually see more of their HEA. But if you are looking for lighthearted and quick read then check out Whiskey Chick.
Let’s chat: What are your thoughts on these snippets from the book and synopsis? Are you adding this to your TBR or is it not your brand of whiskey?
