REVIEW BY MERISSA - Regret (Under My Skin #1) by Christina Lee
Regret (Under My Skin #1) - Christina Lee

Regret is the first book in the Under My Skin series, and is a fantastic second-chance romance. Brin fell hard for Nick when he was younger, but due to Nick's 'cowardice' they broke up before things could really get started. Fast forward and Brin finds out that Nick is the roommate of his friend, where he will also be staying whilst his condo is put back together after a flood. Brin finds out he still holds a lot of resentment towards Nick, and feelings too. He is confused over what he feels, and gives Nick hell, who just seems to accept everything Brin throws at him. Brin becomes intrigued and is determined to find out more, as Nick continues to worm his way past Brin's defences and into his heart.

 

This story is a second chance story, with a hint of enemies to lovers, and also an openly gay vs. closeted in the mix too. There is something here for everyone, and it is exceedingly well told. Although Brin can hold onto a grudge, he is also prepared to accept people have changed. It may take him a while, but he isn't completely closed off to the notion. As for Nick, boy, that man really needs to have some therapy. I can completely understand the guilt he feels, but to hold onto it for so long, so strongly, well, it made my heart break.

 

With no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, this was a story that pulled me in and wouldn't let go until I'd finished. Absolutely brilliant, and definitely recommended by me.

There were certainly no regrets here from reading 'Regret Me Not'...
Regret Me Not - Christopher Lane

'Regret Me Not' started out good for me. I have to admit I totally got where Pierce was coming from...done it, seen it, been there and I remember, oh boy do I remember I was that grumpy old person, lashing out at the people who loved me and wanted to help me and then regretting the words as soon as they were out of my mouth. Wanting to take back everything I'd said but not being able to. Frustrated because the things that I'd taken for granted being able to do I couldn't, knowing that some of it was temporary and some was stuff that I'd be able to do again someday when I was fully recovered but at the end of the day that didn't help a lot when dealing with my frustration...so yeah, I really got where Pierce was coming from. 

 

Pierce takes refuge at his friend Derrick's Florida condo and on his first venture out to the pool to do some aqua therapy he finds himself being coached by an attractive young man who really seems to know his stuff when it comes to therapy. Hal's hiding out at his parent's condo...he's lonely, frustrated and just generally trying to get control of his life. He's been in school for 5 years trying to get his degree which would be a whole lot easier to accomplish if he wasn't squeezing the courses he wanted in between the ones his parents think he needs. Hal wants to be a pysio therapist...his parents want him to be a lawyer and probably not gay would be good in their eyes too.

 

Pierce and Hal fit together like puzzle pieces. Pierce needs help not just getting his body back in shape but getting his heart and soul in order too. Hal needs to help. He's a nurturer, helping people is in his soul, it's an integral part of who he is.

 

Hal thinks Pierce is a unicorn but Pierce...well, Pierce knows that the unicorn is Hal. He's bright and shiny, special and unique and Pierce is sure that he's too old and just not the good person that Hal sees in him. 

 

I loved how well Hal and Pierce fit together, how good they were for each other and to each other. This was a sweet story about two people getting the best gifts of all for Christmas...the gifts of friendship, love and family. 

 

Best of all a the end of the story when I thought I was going to have to have to say good-bye to this adorable pair, Ms. Lane gives the reader one last gift the promise of more...Pierce and Hal will be continuing their adventures and they'll be shared on the author's blog. I know I look forward to continuing to find out more about Hal and Pierce as they continue to go through life together sharing whatever comes their way.

*POKES*

Been an interesting and eventful few months since my last post.  I've been reading but not doing much in the way of reviewing.  Hope to get back into the swing of it.  Hope everyone has been doing well!

Sweetest Regret
Sweetest Regret - Meredith Duran A second chance romance that will tug at your heart for sure! Both the characters are manipulated into believing the other didn't love them, so they break up. A couple years pass before they are reunited. They find out the truth and realize they care more about each other than anything else.

The story is very straight forward and is a classic tale; Duran's writing is beautiful and makes this an easy read. Its a novella, so its short and to the point. If you enjoy second chance romance, this historical romance novella will be a perfect weekend read!

Good Story and Characters
Sweetest Regret - Meredith Duran

Georgina was the daughter of a diplomat - Sir Thomas Trent and is used to acting as his hostess. Then Sir Thomas has to travel travel immediately and leaves Georgina with house guests. To make it worse an important letter has been stolen by one of mentioned guests . Georgina must find said letter Lucas comes to help Georgina find the letter. Thus Georgina has to see Lucas again after he had broken her heart two years ago.Lucas had not only been handsome and charming Georgina could actually talk to him and they had spent a lot of time together until one day she found that Lucas was gone without so much as a goodbye. As they look for the letter Lucas and Georgina  find that they are still attracted to each other.

I enjoyed this story. I liked the plot a lot and this was well written. I also liked that we as readers got background on Lucas and Georgina. I like Georgina and Lucas and  was happy when the misunderstandings of the past were cleared up and the hurt is let go of. But I don’t think that  a lot of the flashbacks really added to the story. I liked the characters a lot as well as the ins and out of this story and I recommend.
