No Regrets

 

No Regrets, Claire Kent
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I was so excited to see this, I loved, and have re read Claire’s “Escorted” a couple of times now, and was hoping for another sexy romance. Well, its a good book but for me it doesn’t have quite the drama and emotion of “Escorted”.
Leslie, ah she was a good woman, hardworking and solid, loves her friends but her love life is sadly lacking….then on taking her elderly spaniel to the vet she meets Josh, the new vet.
He’s hot and later when she’s in the park, still upset over Polly’s necessary but sad end, Josh finds her while he’s out running…and they end up having some hot and heavy sex…
She thinks it’s a one off, but a few days later out with friends one night they bump into him again, and she ends up back with him, after a quickie in the ladies!! Josh though make sit very clear he doesn’t want romance, doesn’t do attachments, and though she’d love all of that her vows this year were to go for it – attack life with no regrets, so they embark on a really sexy, sensual Friends with Benefits affair having some erotic heated moments, doing things Leslie never thought she would.
Then that time comes, when things go wrong, stuff is said that can’t be taken back, and I really felt for poor Leslie here. They part on good terms, but she’s so sad, and is full of doubt whether that was the right action to take. She did the right thing though in my opinion…she’d be cheating herself if she carried on. Josh has solid reasons for his no commitements stance, and she can’t see them changing even though she understands why, and doesn’t think he’ll be happy that way. Can they find a way back though?
Well, its beautifully written and full of hot and erotic sex, allied with some gentle and subtle moments. I didn’t get to wallow enough over the breakup though, and I need that ….need that sense of deep loss, that makes redemtion and comeback so much sweeter.
Stars: Four, loved the story but needed a bit more on the sad side for a five star read. ARC supplied via Netgalley

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle though still read "traditional" books. I read 8-12 hours daily : ) . Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always NEEDED to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contempory, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. If you want your book reviewed send me a link to it or a synopsis/sample with contact details and I'll get back to you. I try to review books within two weeks, but it depends on how many I have at that time. I don't accept money for reviews, simply a free copy of the novel. I'm always honest so be prepared, acceptance of your book doesn't mean a 4 or 5 star review! I select genres simply because i can't review books properly that I know I won't enjoy, and that would be unfair to both you and me. I'm currently rated around the 2,000 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
