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 who 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 Clara 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've been a huge fan of Colleen Hoover's work from the first moment I read SLAMMED back in 2013. I remember re-reading that book on many occasions, mostly during reading slumps, and every single time I fell in love with her writing over and over again. Since then, I've read and adored every single one of her novels. Hopeless, Ugly Love, Maybe Someday, November 9, and all those other books in between. Each time I dove into one of her books I discovered a new kind of romance, a new kind of love, and a phenomenal line up of characters. With that said, I was eager for Regretting You. It's synopsis was unique and different upon first glance. It described a story about the tumultuous relationship between a mother and a daughter, and all the chaos in between, and I was eager for it.

“I’m confident that I’ll never spend a single second of my life regretting you.”

Regretting You by Colleen Hoover was unique, refreshing, and different. I loved how it threw me for an emotional loop right from the get go. It hit me in the feels like a high speed train, and I couldn't set it down even for a moment; I was desperate to know what happened next for Clara and Morgan. Additionally, I loved their alternating perspectives - throwing me from one fascinating development to the other. The story in Regretting You was emotionally riveting, loving, dramatic, and refreshing - I adored it overall. It certainly has become a favorite for yours truly, and will most certainly be one of the first books I reach when I need a pick-me-up read.
