One-liners (Part 1)

We’ve all read them: those lines in a book that pop out at you and stick in your memory long after the last page. Some make you laugh; others make you think. Oh yes, and a few make you blush, too.

For this post, I’ve collected some of the best one-liners from a fabulous group of guest authors. I’ve also thrown in a line of my own from Switching Positions that others have told me they especially enjoyed. I hope you have as much fun reading these as I have.

One-liners definitely make for great hooks. They’re like amuse-bouches for the imagination. I don’t know about you, but I found these lines definitely whetted my appetite for more. Be sure to catch Part 2 of this post next week for more great lines from some of your favorite authors.

  1. These are great. Read through them twice. Becky Black made me smile more than once. I especially liked her sausage comment. Jianne Carlo also got me more than once. And the lips remark in Switching Positions was great. Jessica Freely had a good one also. Looking forward to the one liners Part 2.

  2. These are terrific Allie. OMG your Switching Positions one liner is both hot and humorous, and what a great double entendre with the title – well done. I, too, love the sausage one – made me grin.

    You are so creative with your posts!

  3. Ah, these were brilliant – and I wish I’d been brave and gone for a more graphic one myself now 😉 Going to have to read them all again…

  4. Heh, love these. Sexy ones, funny ones, poetic ones, they’re all great. 😀

  5. Thank you so much for including me! These are great. : )

    • You’re welcome. I’m so happy you joined in, Tara. You’ve got a couple more lines coming up in One-liners Part 2, so I hope everyone checks back to enjoy the second batch.
