Publisher's Summary

The #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller that People Magazine calls "a poignant, addictive read."

From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us comes a novel about family, first love, grief, and betrayal that will touch the 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 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.

✫✫ 4.5 Stars ✫✫

I went into this book completely blind because its Colleen Hoover and it doesn't matter what it's about for me ;) I think what I liked most about this book was that it felt like an original Coho story. The last few have been very different and even though I loved them all, this just felt like it goes back to the original Colleen Hoover style with real people and difficult situations with a YA feel. I loved that we get both the POV of the mother & the daughter. This made all the difference for me because I think some of the choices they made would have been hard for me to understand if I wasn't getting their thoughts about the situation. I really liked that Clara is a normal teen, she reacts badly to things, she has immature moments and is a bit dramatic at times but that made this feel more realistic for me. I loved that even though things were hard and everyone was hurting and confused, in the end they all are happy. This book was a bit of a roller coaster on my emotions which I think I usually expect from this author.

The narration was better than I expected. I really thought I would not enjoy the audio version because of the casting. Tanya Eby is a great narrator but I feel like she is usually cast in rolls that are to young for her voice. When this book started and Morgan (Tanya's character) was only 17 I was like nope she can't pull off a teenager. Thankfully that was a "then" scene and in the present she is older which she did great. This is not saying anything about her performance, just that she sounds too old to be 17 and that makes it hard for me to get lost in the story.
I think this was my first Lauren Ezzo and I really enjoyed her work, great casting choice.
So if your worried about narration, don't be, they did a good job on this book!

Great book, terrible narration

I really enjoyed this book but I was constantly getting distracted by the narration of the woman who played Maureen, the mother. She sounded just like a robot and I can’t understand why they would possibly pick someone like that to read this book. On the other hand, the person who played the daughter, Clair, was great!. Other than the robotic sounding narration of the one character, I really enjoyed this book.

I didn’t know it was possible to have a crush on a grandpa...

Yet here I am. My favorite character was Gramps but of course, in Colleen Hoover fashion, all of her characters were all so believable and lovable. Loved this.

Predictable, unrealistic, reader was terrible

This book was a waste of time. It was boringly predictable. The reader was horrible and whoever it was did not know how Texans talk! We don't call our aunts “Awwnts”, we call them “Antsl! I would not recommend this book to anyone.

Oh boy, Colleen Hoover does it again!

What can I say...I adore Colleen Hoover! I adore her as a person, I adore her humor, her social media presence and most of all, I adore her books!! This story was real, heartbreaking, raw, funny, and sweet! I really love how I fall in love with her characters and all their flaws, their struggles, their victories, and can laugh along with Gramps when he’s trying to get one last laugh in...

Oh I just loved the ending! Miller’s surprise as well as Gramps’ surprise. It made me smile and laugh and was a perfect close to a bit of a tumultuous story.

Thank you Colleen for another gift to the book community!

The audio was very well done. I enjoyed both Tanya Eby and Lauren Ezzo as Morgan and Clara. I devoured this audio in just a couple days it was hard to put down!

A good decision to one click

Regretting You was really good. I was worried at the beginning because there was quite a bit of angst... and especially teen-angst which is my LEAST favorite! But it had wonderful storytelling and a good, original story line that kept things interesting.

“Sometimes when he says things to me, his words feel like they reach me through my chest rather than through my ears.”

The story is a blend of women’s fiction, romance and YA. This book is packed with secrets, lies, regrets and bad decisions, but it is a really good decision to one click this one! I listened to about half of the book on audio and really enjoyed the narration.
-4.5 Stars!-

Why!

The story was alright but the narrators drove me a bit nuts! Like the voices they made when the guys were talking were like the same voices I make when my boss or huz say something stupid and I mock them using that Chooch voice. I probably won’t listen to another audio book again for a long time and will go back and read this book so I don’t feel like I dislike it.

Don’t loose your credit with this book

I love Colleen Hoover but this book is mediocre. The plot is foolish and the two main characters are the most annoying people .

Short of 5 stars for one reason!!

As usual CoHo's writing is really good, so far had no complaints about any of her books except this one. The story flowed well pace great loved Clara and Morgan. But ***spoiler****








The way Morgan dealt with her husband's affair was too unrealistic. That whole issue felt unresolved and felt the readers should have at least got a little insight into what drove Chris and Jenny to do what they did. They got away with the ultimate betrayal never got to answer for what they. Just left filling unfulfilled hence the 4 stars.

EXCEPTIONAL

Regretting you the story of mother and daughter Morgan and Clara is beautiful,sad, heartbreaking with that bit of humour we all love thrown in. Its now one of my favourites. Morgan and Clara bring this book to absolute life with their very real mum daughter trials and tribulations. it's not easy being a mum as it's not easy navigating your way through being a teenager. Especially after what the family are going through. All the people in this book have great personalities. . I read it (listened)to it in a day. Colleen never fails to deliver a great story that makes it feel you are there watching it all unfold. Yes it brought tears to my eyes. Happy and sad. Regretting you is most definitely a MUST READ. Loved it.

Get it, now!!

This book!!!!! Colleen Hoover IS amazing and will never disappoint. This isn't as dark as the books I usually like by her (its more a New Adult) but as always is punches you right in the gut with all the feels.
