Author: Lauren Blakely
Series: No Regrets #0.5
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Published: November 15th 2013







A new adult story of First Times. Last Times. Connections. And No Regrets...

I only wanted a tattoo. A mark on my body to remind me of who I used to be. Something to hold onto when I started my penance for all the things I’d done wrong, the bad choices I’d made by the time I turned nineteen. Instead, I found a night of possibility, of truth, of hope for the future. And the most intense physical connection I’ve ever had.

The only one I’ve ever had, and one I will never forget.

Trey...

When she walked into my tattoo shop, I knew she was like me. Harley had secrets. She had a messed-up past, and things she wanted to run from, or forget ever happened. I couldn’t let her go. So we agreed on one night – to spend it together wandering around the city, getting to know each other, the clock ticking because we knew tomorrow would bring an end to the possibility of an us.

Unless tonight was only the start.

How can one night be the start of something when tomorrow it has to end?

The Start of Us is a novella that begins before the first book in the series. It is an introduction to how Harley and Trey initially met. The course of the novella runs over one night; it shows how they spent time together and what they did on the final night before their lives changed for the better.

Although I didn’t get to know the characters too well, I was definitely intrigued by the end of the book. They both have secrets that haven’t been revealed and I know I want to learn more about them. Their addiction affects them both in different ways and it will be interesting to see how they deal with it.

I thought that The Start of Us was a great introduction to the series. The attraction between the characters is sizzling and I’m looking forward to the challenges they face in the next book.
