The Start of Us

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 the first book in the USA Today bestselling NO REGRETS series.

"One week. No rules, no limits, just us. I can save you from this unrequited love of yours. And you... you can save me from myself." Alicia Wright isn't the kind of girl to make out with a stranger in a dark alley. She's spent years playing it safe, pining after the perfect man - who's about to marry someone else. She doesn't know how to move on, until a sexy stranger turns her world upside down with a wickedly tempting proposition... 

She'll rescue him from the edge of oblivion... 

Rock star Dex Callahan swore his days of fame and debauchery were behind him, but the spotlight keeps calling his name. Determined not to fall into his old life, he goes looking for distraction -- and finds an intoxicating red-head with a mouth made for sin. One kiss could never be enough, so Dex offers her a deal: spend one week with him, and she'll forget her old flame ever existed. 

Together, they'll ignite a passion that will change them forever... 

No rules. No limits. As the whirlwind week of pleasure unfolds, Alicia discovers a desire she never knew existed - and the tortured heart Dex hides behind his charming smile. But can old loves so easily be replaced? And when the week is over, will their bond be strong enough to weather the storm?
