Book Beginnings on Friday (13)

Book Beginnings on Friday at Rose City Reader is the place to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the book.

I'm extra excited about this Book Beginnings because it's my 13th post on Friday the 13th!  That's got to mean something good!!  I haven't actually started this one yet, but I will be tomorrow morning.  Here's the beginning of Reforming the Cowboy by Marisa Cleveland.

"Billy Hardy?" As his eyes adjusted to the dim room, Billy sniffed and perked up.  One of the greatest inventions was the scent of fresh-ground coffee, and the cool air was a welcome change to the mugginess outside."

Book Blurb:
Country singer Billy Hardy needs to get back on the charts. His manager assures him headlining the opening of a cafe in South Beach is his best chance at getting back to the big time. If he fails, his career is over for good this time.Lacey Durant can't believe opening night includes the country singer she crushed on through college. And her customers agree he's dreamy. But his playboy reputation threatens her cafe's image and she can't afford that. She insists Billy stay with her so she can keep an eye on him, and thwart overenthusiastic fans.Billy's charms and Lacey's sexy curves prove more than either can resist, but she refuses to be just another lyric in his well-known songs of heartbreak.
