The Two of Us by Andy Jones, paperback published February 9, 2016. From Washington Square Press

First chapter, first paragraph:
People ask: How long have you been together? 
How did you meet?You're sitting at a table, fizzing with the defiant ostentation of new love (Is that what it is? Is it love already?), laughing too loud and kissing more enthusiastically than is de riguer in a quiet country pub, and someone will say, Put her down! Get a room! You make a lovely couple, or some variation on the theme. 
Book description:
Fisher and Ivy discover that falling in love is one thing, but staying there is an entirely different story.

Andy Jones lives in London with his wife and two little girls. During the day he works in an advertising agency; at weekends and horribly early in the mornings, he writes fiction.

Would you keep reading based on the first paragraphs?


  1. Oh, I do want to read on to see what happens, since surely their love will not stay at this intense level...lol. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  2. I'm curious about this book and would like to read it on that basis. The opening paragraph is different. I'd like to see where it's going.

  3. I might - if I was in the right mood. Hope you enjoy it!

  4. I'm not sure. It sounds like it might be a bit depressing. Girl Who Reads

  5. I like the intro! Cute & witty. I'd keep going.

  6. This sounds like such a delightful romance! I would definitely keep reading! I had never heard of this author before. I'm glad that Nicholas Sparks isn't the only author writing romance! Thanks for sharing!! :)

  7. I like the intro, I'd keep reading.

  8. This sounds like it could be good - I hope you enjoy it:)
