Let me start off with saying, that if Mrs. Miller does not write a sequel to this starring Lacey and Jake…. I will be completely devastated. Now off to the book.
Living with Regret is a standalone second chance romance with a bit of a twist. Jordan and Chase fell in love at 17. He was the star football player that could have any girl he wanted (but didn’t) and she was the new girl that was happy to finally have a place to belong after being moved around for years. He asked her out repeatedly until she finally said yes. She was reluctant, but after that first date she was his. Then, his father convinced him that things would be better for both Chase and Jordan if they broke up…. so he broke her heart.
The man I’m going to spend the rest of my life with won’t need a break from me. He’ll know from the moment I enter his life that I’m worth keeping. That’s the type of man I deserve to be with and I’m not going to settle for anything less.
Fast forward 10 years later, and Jordan is the CEO of her family’s very successful cosmetics company and Chase is playing professional football. He gets a concussion and when he wakes up, he has “rewritten” his memories and believes that he never broke up with Jordan. He believes that she is his wife, and has been for many years. At the request of his mother, and against her better judgement, she plays along in hopes that it will help restore his memories.
I’ve never read a book by Riann C. Miller, but I will definitely be seeking out the other books she has written. The book hooked me from the very beginning and I became so invested that I was completely angry at some of the characters. Not so angry that I didn’t still want that happily ever after… but what they went through to get there was a roller coaster of emotions.
“Thank you? For what?” I mumble
Chase gives my hand a squeeze before answering me. “For tonight, because I already know it’s going to be the best night of my life.” He smiles at me one last time before starting his truck.
That was the first crack in the wall I’d built around my heart, a wall that I later learned didn’t stand a chance against the powerful determination of Chase Adams.
The writing was phenomenal, and I stayed up late to finish this book that kept me wanting more. And now that it’s over? I still want more.
I received a copy of the book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
