Book Beginnings on Friday: Something Like Fate

Book Beginnings on Friday is a new meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you’re reading. If you’d like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence.

Today I am starting Something Like Fate by Susane Colasanti. I picked up all of Colasanti’s books at a signing quite a few weeks ago, but I’ve been immersed in library books. I’m trying to take a mini-break from the library to catch up on some of the books I’ve purchased.

Book summary from jacket copy:

Lani and Erin are lifelong best friends–and total opposites. Lani’s a down-to-earth Taurus; Erin’s a fiery Leo. Lani likes to do her own thing; Erin prefers an entourage. They’ve always had wildly different tastes, from pizza toppings to guys.

That is, until Erin starts dating Jason.

From the minute Lani meets Jason, she can’t deny the amazing connection she feels with him. It’s like they’ve known each other their whole lives. She’s not sure if he feels it, too–but even if he does, he’s off-limits. Lani’s determined to ignore her feelings for Jason, no matter how powerful they are, rather than hurt her best friend.

Then Erin goes away for the summer–and Jason seems to appear everywhere Lani turns. How long can she keep running from the guy who just might be the love of her life?

Here’s the entire first chapter of the book:

I never meant for it to happen like this. But if I had the chance, there’s no way I would take it all back.

Keep an eye out for a review, accompanied by a video of Colasanti talking about Something Like Fate, and a swag giveaway. I hope to read the book today and have the giveaway up within the weekend.
