This is the prequel novel to Take This Regret series by A.L. Jackson.
Christian is going into pre-law to follow in his father's practice, even though it might not be the exact thing he wants. But it's expected of him so he follows suit.
When the two meet together, a spark and connection come alive. But Elizabeth is not into a one night stand so she tells Christian they can be classmates and friends, but nothing else.
So the both of them keep to their agreement and become best friends, always hanging out and doing their homework together, getting dinner, etc.
Except that the sexual tension between the two of them is growing stronger...
And both are acting as if they are dating rather than being friends.
When one action changes things between them, they have to decide if they want the same things. Because once they cross that boundary, nothing can ever go back to what it was like as just friends.

Just a forewarning, this is a NEW ADULT novel, which means that it's a little bit more mature and graphic than a YA novel but not too racy like an adult novel. Mainly, New Adult (NA) novels are set in college and are about characters who are starting to grow up, but still do things that are immature.
I got this online from Amazon for $0.99 as an eBook because it sounded interesting and it was the prequel before the first novel in the series.
This was a short novella but I found it quite long and at times boring. The story was alright, and I really liked Elizabeth standing her ground and stating what she wants and doesn't want.
But there was a lot of thought processing for both characters and while I like to know what the characters are thinking, I also like action and the characters actually acting on what they feel, which Elizabeth and Christian didn't do that often.
So this was an okay novel, but not something that I will reread or even buy the other novels in the series. I just didn't feel it, even though there are a lot of reviews out there that state they love it. Just wasn't meant for me I guess.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to read an NA novel and wants the backstory to the full length novel.
