Colleen Hoover was another one of those authors that really kicked off the romance genre for me. I haven’t read her books in years especially her newer releases. Slammed and Hopeless were the books that had me absolutely falling in love with her work. And I never want to lose that feeling when I think about her books hence why I’ve been hesitant to read her newer stuff. But there was something about Regretting You that had me pulled in. I was nervous to read it since it has been a while and I could never bring myself to read her other recent releases simply because of tropes I don’t normally read.
I would say that I loved this more than I thought it would, it has a blend of women’s fiction and romance. I think if it was simply women’s fiction, I wouldn’t have picked this one up. I’m a romance reader through and through, so I’ll always be seeking that happily ever after.
In Regretting You, we get multiple story arcs, but my goodness, Colleen did a fantastic job of weaving them all together, effortlessly. It flowed so perfectly and there wasn’t a moment where I found myself swaying away from the book. We have the mother-daughter arc, their personal love stories and just their own life journey as well.
I would say this book is one many can enjoy, you don’t have to be a romance reader or simply just a women’s fiction reader. Many who read from these genres will definitely find something that they could enjoy.
A betrayal so deep, you’re constantly in this vortex of trying to figure out the why and what happened. Grief, it’s a tricky thing and not something that’s easy to navigate. Morgan and Clara both are struggling with it and both for very different reasons. A second chance at love and a new love.
I devoured every single page, it doesn’t quite top as my favorite Colleen Hoover reads, but it’s definitely up there.
