Publication: Independently published on October 29, 2020

Series: The Berkshires, Book One

Synopsis: 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, sweet and clean, 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.

My Thoughts

Rating: ★★★★☆

This was such a sweet, heartwarming read. Hannah and Collin are such an adorable couple, and I loved watching the relationship play out. The pacing was pretty much perfect for me, as it wasn’t too rushed, but it wasn’t annoyingly slow either.

This book had me hooked from the start. If you’ve read any of my reviews, you probably know I’m a sucker for alternating chapters; I love reading from multiple character perspectives. I also love a light, yet emotional read, and this book met both of those expectations.

The book slightly touches on mental health as well, which I actually really liked; I love books that bring awareness to things that are important, whether it be mental health, abuse, or something similar.

The ending was completely unexpected. I absolutely didn’t expect it to end where it did, leaving the book with a cliffhanger. This book is the perfect example of why I usually wait until a series has already ended before picking it up. I’ll definitely keep my eye out for the second book next year, along with any other books Janey King releases.
