About No Regrets:
On my last birthday, I made one vow for the year. Live with no regrets. Eleven months have passed, though, and nothing has changed. I still sleep alone, spend my life working, and never move out of my comfort zone.
Then the loss of my dog throws my whole life out of orbit, and I end up in bed with a very hot and slightly-too-young veterinarian, who has recently made a vow of his own. Live with no strings. Josh is more than happy to help me with the things I’ve been afraid to try. Semi-public sex. Spanking. Anal sex. He’s a willing partner for everything I’ve wondered about, as long as I don’t demand more.
He’s serious about his no-strings philosophy. As serious as I am about living with no regrets. I can’t help but fall for him, even though I know better. So my biggest regret might be a broken heart.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Leslie decided after her last birthday to live the year with no regrets. Well, 11 months have gone by with essentially no changes in her life and she decides it is time to start doing things differently. The loss of her dog puts her in the path of veterinarian Josh, who offers her the opportunity for a lot of pleasure, but is clear about the fact that he is a no strings attached guy. Leslie would definitely regret not giving herself this pleasure, but finds herself falling in love with someone who isn't going to commit to a relationship.
I can honestly say I have no regrets about reading this book. In fact, I loved it quite a bit! From the very beginning I was feeling right along with the characters and nearly every aspect of this story had me hooked. Leslie was a relatable character and it was fantastic to see her do what she could to live a happier life. She was open and honest and I really hoped that she would find the satisfaction in her life that she deserved. Josh was not hard to love either. Whoo! He was hot in so many ways it was hard to keep track. Even with his no commitment policy, he was honest and completely respectful at all times. It was clear that the years he spend doing AID work overseas took a toll on him emotionally and he was being protective as a result. Also- this guy was crazy hot in the sack. I loved the realistic feel a lot of the story had to it. Especially one particular sex scene which involved something that is often completely misrepresented in many other books. I was engaged with the story and characters throughout and would definitely read more by this author in the future.
