NO REGRETS SERIES REVIEW
Book #1: The Thrill of It
Book Review: 5+ stars
One of the things I like the most about The Audiobook Challenge is that repeats are allowed. The moment I accepted the challenged, I thought about Lauren Blakely’s audiobooks that I have listened and that it would be a great opportunity to re-listen to them, fall in love all over again with all those amazing book boyfriends that Lauren has given me, and post a review in the blog for all of them. I decided to start with No Regrets Series. And guess what? I loved it all over again. I think I love it more now than when I read it a year ago and I listened to the audiobook back in june.
Trey and Harley’s story is angsty and beautiful. It’s about two young people, who struggle with their addiction to love and sex. Harley wanted power and control, and she found it with Cam. He gave Harley what she never had with her mother, who, in my humble opinion, was an awful mother *ugh*. On the other hand there is Trey, he wanted to numb the pain with the pleasure of no strings attached sex with older women. And, just like the saying: “Every cloud has a silver lining”, they had to go through all this shit in their lives to finally get out of their addictions and the best of it was they met each other, became friends, they were true to each other, always being honest with each other, they knew their secrets, their weaknesses, but also their strengths, the beautify of their souls and that’s what made them fall in love with each other.
I totally love the first book of the series. I remember when I read it the first time, it tricked me until the very end of the book because when I thought the story was about to end and it wouldn’t have more, BOOM! Cliffhanger! One huge Cliffhanger!
Book #2 Every Second With You
Book Review: 5+ stars
The second book of the series is even more angsty than the first one. Trey and Harley have one huge challenge now, and it doesn’t only threatens their relationship, but it also could have brought Trey back to his addiction. There are also some secrets and misunderstandings that added so much drama to the story, but I love it anyway, because they both handle things very well, with maturity and really smartly. Their love was big enough to keep them together.
The secondary characters in both books are awesome. Cam, Trey and Harley’s best friends, Trey’s parents, Harley’s grandparents. All of them were great support for their recovery and their relationship. I’m still waiting for Cam’s book. Please Lauren, write Cam’s book! Pretty please! 😉
I have to mention that I cried like a baby at the end of the book. I thought I was going to die, but everything was fixed, they have their HEA and I could finally breath.
Audiobook review: 5 stars
Erin Mallon did an amazing job at the narration, especially with the dual POV. Her voice for Harley was sweet and smooth, perfect for Harley’s personality, and her voice for Trey was strong, deep, fitted perfectly for Trey. There are a lot of internal conversations and realizations for both characters, and when Erin is narrating them, she made me feel every feeling they were feeling, the sadness, the desperation, the self doubt, but the love, the endless, pure and immense love they both feel for each other. The audiobooks made this series so much better.
