Listen, before I even get into this review I want to apologize because I am already 3 weeks behind on all of my stuff. However, it is what it is and I’m just rolling with it at this point.
Title: Regretting You
Author: Colleen Hoover
Published by: Montlake Romance (Amazon)
Read from 10/12/2019 – 1/2/2020 *
From #1 New York Times bestselling authors of It Ends With Us comes a poignant novel about family , first love, grief, and betrayal that will touch hearts of both mothers and daughters. Morgan Grant and her sixteen year old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike. Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body. With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person whole can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara. While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and ClRz turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.
I normally do not read romance at all, but I trusted my bookish ladies on Instagram and gave it a go. And Oh My Gosh I am so glad that I did. This book gave me all the feels!
What I mean by that is that I was actually feeling the emotions that Clara and Morgan were feeling. I was upset when terrible things happened and gleeful when excited new opportunities arose for them.
Regretting You did not make me cry, but there were times when my sorrow was so incredible that I had to walk away from the book and go find my boyfriend to be comforted because I could not imagine living in a world without the people that I loved the most.
That’s the thing about Colleen Hoover. She doesn’t write “normal” romance and I will say that time and time again. Her books are unlike any other romance book that I have ever read. I don’t just feel mushy and gushy but I feel sorrow, hurt, betrayal, and euphoria. Her writing is magnificent and if you haven’t read a Colleen Hoover book yet… well you need to. Trust me.
I absolutely recommended this book to romance lovers and haters alike.
I want to thank NetGalley and Montlake Romance for providing me with the ebook in exchange for my honest review.
