Janie Reardon is determined to get over her old high school crush Jack Smith. So when he asks her to help him find out if another woman is interested in him, she agrees, deciding it's the best and fastest way to permanently remove him from her heart. But the more time they spend together, the more her crush grows. Can she really let Jack go once and for all?


How cute is Jill Lynn Buteyn's The Start of Us! It is just a perfect little read for any time of the day. Take it with you on a commute, in the car waiting for your kids to get out of practice, or just with a nice glass of sweet tea, sitting on your front porch and devour this in a mere hour or so. It is a novella, so it will be a quick, but delightful and fun read.

"I thought Jack couldn't get any more attractive, but he's just blown that theory out of the water."

Sweet and adorable, The Start of Us is exactly that - the start of a romance that can last a lifetime. It's what I imagined when I was  a little girl to what romance would be like. The cover captured that moment of how romantic a simple touch can be. Endearing Jack trying to find a way to impress a girl, while Janie tries to mend her heart that Jack unknowingly kept poking at. In the end, what comes may not necessarily be a surprise for readers, but definitely for Janie. In all, The Start of Us will make a great start to those not familiar with the author's other works, but for fans, it makes a great addition.

"I'm just going to be me. God will handle the rest."
