Review: Where We Begin

Where We Begin, (The Berkshires, #1)


Fate never gives you everything you want. But sometimes, when you least expect it, you get exactly what (or who) you need…

Hannah’s life has suddenly become a lot less. Jobless, homeless, and boyfriend-less, that is. Now, all she wants is a fresh start—and her sister’s charming small town is the perfect setting for it. Finding a new romance is nowhere on her agenda. Too bad her heart (the stupid organ that beats a little faster every time her new boss is near) didn’t get the memo.

Collin hasn’t been lucky when it comes to romance, either. But knowing he’s not cut out for love doesn’t stop him from wanting his beautiful new employee with an intensity that terrifies him. He barely survived losing his fiancée. Losing Hannah…well, he’s afraid there wouldn’t be any coming back from that.

Can Hannah and Collin overcome the pain of their pasts—and the secrets they’re both still carrying—to take a shot at happily ever after? Or are they destined to remain star crossed forever?

Where We Begin, book 1 in The Berkshires series, is a lightly angsty, and sweet new adult contemporary romance featuring a down-but-not-out heroine and the beaten-but-not-broken hero of her dreams. Download today and get ready to fall in love with your next favorite book boyfriend. 

Rating: 3.5-stars


Where We Begin by Janey King is a good read. It is definitely a contemporary romance book. I liked the characters. They had some depth and flaws to keep me interested. The dialogue was good. The pacing was steady. There is plenty of humor and romance. Hannah is the heroine of this story. She just found out her man left and now wants her gone. She leaves to be near her sister and nieces until she’s ready to pick up her life again. Upon moving in with her sister, she lands a job and runs into a hot guy. At first, she is not aware of who Collin is until a setup between them happens. There is mutual attraction and some personal issues they both have. Collin too, is reeling from his fiancée. Both are not ready for another entanglement yet neither can deny what they feel towards each other. They relationship from boss to coworker blossoms into friends. Then, from friends-to-lovers. However, the ending was a major cliffhanger and leaves me wondering what in the world…I have no idea what is going to happen. This book had some great parts and some not so great parts. But it was still entertaining. Overall, the book was okay.
