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?


I discovered this novella thanks to a steamy teaser shared from a blogger friend of mine. I swooned commented on it and then my friend told me it was actually free and that I needed to grab it. Now, if someone who knows your taste in books recommends you one that is also free, would you honestly refuse? And with just one click, here it is!

"The Start of Us" certainly appears like the beginning of something forbidden and deliciously addictive... Admit it, just for that you could already fall for it, couldn't you? It's true that we have just hints of Harley and Trey's pasts and their addictions, but they're enough to give us an idea of what we would embark into in case we decide to explore it further. And I dare you to read of the night told here and not want to!

Definitely a very good introduction to a series that got me intrigued, and more than ready to find out everything about its characters!
