Welcome to First Line Fridays! The day we grab the book closest to us and share the first line. Join the fun and discover your next read!

This week I am sharing the first line from Kimberly Rose Johnson’s prequel novella, Until I Met You. I’ve just finished reading it and I absolutely loved it. There is something about Kimberly’s writing voice that is completely my cup of tea. Her characters feel real to me in a way that is different from other writers and difficult to describe. Also, the situations her characters experience seem like things I or my friends would actually go through. If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it. Better yet, it is currently FREE on Amazon! What are you waiting for?

Until I Met You

Here are the first lines:

Early Saturday morning, Brandi Prescott held her latte in one hand and opened the door to leave her favorite coffee shop in the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle. She raised her hood and tightened the belt of her trench coat as rain pounded the ground.

“Bring it on.”


Graphic designer, Brandi Prescott hopes to work her way to the top at the Seattle ad agency where she’s employed. She’s dedicated and distraction-free since she’s taking a hiatus from men to focus on her relationship with the Lord and get to know herself without the influence of another person.

Software engineer Ian Parker is in a good place. He loves his job, his social life and the direction his life is going. At least that is the case until one fateful rainy morning when he meets a woman who changes everything. The only problem is, she won’t go out with him because she made a pledge to not date for six months.

Brandi’s six-month pledge ends on Christmas. Will Ian wait or will his scheming to get to know her destroy what might have been?
