Review: No Regrets by Kate L. Mary (College of Charleston #2)

Note: This ARC was provided by Kensington Books via NEtGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Camilla Jane Summers is ready to experience college life to the fullest. After all, she promised her best friend that she would live her life without any regrets. She plans to bring along her new roommate on every adventure and tag along with her cousin and his friends whenever and wherever. And while flirting and trying to hook-up with her cousin's British roommate would definitely meet with her best friend's approval, Cami had never expected to develop feelings for Liam. The more she's with Liam, the closer the two become, but the more distant Cami feels from the best friend she made a promise of "no regrets" to.

No Regrets is the second book in the new adult (NA) series from author Kate L. Mary entitled College of Charleston and is told along the same timeline as the first book, The List. Cami Summers is an eighteen-year-old college freshman who is up for almost anything and everything and does it all without regret, or so she promised her best friend who lies motionless in a hospital bed after being in a car accident. When Cami meets Liam, whose last name I tried looking for in both books but couldn't find, what begins as a mutually physical attraction develops over the next few weeks and months into something more for both.

I really enjoyed the first book in the series, so my expectations for this one were rather high. While I did like finally learning about Cami and whether or not she and Liam would end up together, I found myself becoming increasingly irked by her behavior in the book. I understand that she made this promise to her best friend and that this was her reasoning behind all the reckless stuff she did and pulled, but I couldn't help but wonder how true that really was or if she was merely using her best friend as her scapegoat. Her treatment of Liam and her roommate Annie Roth was disappointing and made her look so self-centered.

Cami had some good moments, especially when it came to trying to help Annie out of her shell and the closeness she had with her cousin Ryan Cole. She also seemed perfectly at ease with Mike, the guy she met at the bar, but she seemed too into being with a guy and we all know the kind of reputation a girl can get from being that way. While I wasn't too fond of Cami, I did love Liam, who was sweet and funny and who seemed to truly want to treat Cami differently from how he treated girls before. And, of course, I liked revisiting Annie and Ryan's love story as well. No Regrets gets four stars and I can't wait for Moving On. ♥
