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’m confident that I’ll never spend a single second of my life regretting you.” Regretting You by Colleen Hoover was a heartbreaking yet profound story. Lots of regrets. Missed opportunities. Second chances. But above all: Forgiveness. Told through the POV of mother and daughter, both are facing a rather tragic moment in their lives; the death of a husband and father. The ramifications of Chris's passing is what will ultimately leave you shocked. Hidden secrets come to light. New romances bloom with the chance at finding love again. Personal growth and a lot of maturing as Morgan and Clara go on a journey of healing and acceptance. Colleen Hoover is one of those authors who writes about deep, real, and emotional stories (my favorite: Hopeless) that will touch your heart and soul and you won't soon forget it. Regretting You is that and more. This is definitely a story I full-hearted recommend!

Another great story by Colleen Hoover. I always fall in love with her characters and after the book is over want to keep following them in their daily lives. This book was no different. This felt a little like a YA book but because it involved some adult characters to me it made it more of an adult fiction story. Either way, it's a great story about love, sacrifice and so much more!

Another home run from Colleen Hoover! Read it in one sitting. The story in true Hoover fashion is engaging, entertaining and heart breaking.

I literally could not stop reading this!! I was initially concerned it might be a slow read, as a women's fiction about a mother/daughter relationship. Clearly, I was so wrong. It had me completely hooked. This book goes SO much further than that - yes, the mother/daughter relationship is a central theme, but it also has romance, personal growth, grief, tragedy, and heartbreak. Yes the relationship between Morgan and her daughter Clara is a big part of the story - but so are the relationships between sisters, significant others, friends, and the sweetest little baby Elijah. It's told in alternating chapters between Morgan and Clara's viewpoints, and while sometimes this tactic can take away from the plot or seem to halt the flow of the book - Colleen Hoover makes this work perfectly in Regretting You. It moves the story along, and gives a depth to both characters that we wouldn't otherwise see. Morgan and Clara are both very well developed, and we see a lot of natural growth in each of them separately, and as a mother/daughter team as well. This book will give you all the feels. It is amazing. I can't say what else I want to without giving away some spoilers - but read this book!!!

4.5 ⭐️ Along with the Good, Bad and Ugly of REGRETTING YOU is an amazing story that tests the mother/daughter bond. This one will make you think. It will make you question yourself and what you would do and how you would act if you were in Morgan or Clara’s shoes. After all the heartache these characters go through, it had such a sweet ending, and left me with a huge smile on my face.

Anytime Colleen writes a book it’s an automatic buy, I don’t have to read the synopsis to know that I am going to love it, but Regretting You hit me in a way I didn’t think was possible. I wasn’t excepting the story line to go the way it did but I am thankful for it because it’s realistic and you connect with the characters on such an intense level that you feel there pain, grief and happiness in ways that stay with you long after you have finished the book. Thank you Colleen for taking the time out of your life to write these stories that make you feel!

This is my first book of Colleen Hoover and without a doubt she made it to my auto-read, auto-buy list. This is such a brilliantly written one that it makes the reader so emotionally involved. The mix of adult love and young love is sweet. There are three relationships being tested and they come out in such glory even if takes time. One is between Morgan and her daughter, Clara, then between Clara and Miller and finally the one between Morgan and her sisters’ husband. There is so much drama that drama lovers will celebrate it for sure. There are secrets, grief, betrayal, romance , anger and even typical teenage attitude. The young love of Clara is endearing and heart-warming. Once you start reading, it is going to be extremely difficult to not go all the way immediately. Get ready with tissues as it is definitely a tear-jerker. Such an emotional and captivating read! Thanks to NetGalley and publisher for the ARC.

REGRETTING YOU hooked me from the very first page and I'm not embarrassed to tell you that I did not do anything I was supposed to do until I was finished reading! Needless to say, my husband was constantly yelling at me to stop reading! Obviously he has never read a Colleen Hoover novel because everyone knows once you start there is no way to stop. I devour her stories and everyone of them has crushed my heart and left me crying. REGRETTING YOU does not disappoint. Colleen Hoover, you owe me a box of tissues! There isn't a single thing about this book that I didn't love. It was wonderful, mesmerizing, hypnotizing, heartbreaking and breathtaking. This is going to be a shorter review because my honest opinion is that it's best to go into REGRETTING YOU knowing as little as possible about the actual story so I won't tell you anything that'll ruin the experience here. At times I was shocked and started to cry.   I kept saying, "How the heck can someone get through this?" There are also moments of humor, holding my breath for the next chapter and hoping for the ending I wanted more than ever!  But I can say that I was hooked from the very first page and completely drawn into these characters' lives.  REGRETTING YOU is not your typical Colleen Hoover story. I love that she expanded her normal writing and would love to read more of these suspenseful, mystery books from her. She blew me away and left me craving more! Once I started reading REGRETTING YOU I discovered that there's even more to this story than meets the eye. There's an added layer to it that I absolutely loved but that I won't mention because discovering it as you read is honestly the best. One of the things I love most about Colleen Hoover's writing is how deeply she makes me care for her characters and how strongly she makes me feel for them. Deception and pain, love and loss, secrets and truths, hope and redemption—they all twist and tangle together creating another unforgettable novel from one of the freshest and most trusted voices in romance. Finally, you need to read REGRETTING YOU.  It will surprise, shock, impress, grip and absorb you into its story. And those wonderful characters, how happy I am for having ‘met’ them! They will stick with me for a very long time. I just know the same thing will happen for you...

Regretting You is a fantastic book by Colleen Hoover. It's a young adult/contemporary romance, and it is just beautifully written. Colleen Hoover is the kind of writer that can weave a great story and keep readers interested and invested. There are multiple interwoven stories in this book, exploring parent/child relationships, young love and a second chance at love. It centers around mother and daughter, their fractured family, and rebuilding trust and love. While there are two romances in this book (mother and daughter each have a romance in the plot), the parent/child relationship is the best part of this book. That is not so say the romances aren't great - they are beautiful - but the mother/daughter relationship is the true star here. This book portrays strong women, a mother that will do anything to make sure her daughter has the best start possible, and a lot of personal growth for both Morgan and Clara. Colleen Hoover has written a well-balanced story that takes you from heartbreak to joy, and makes you experience a gamut of emotions. From grief, betrayal and heartache to forgiveness, love and new starts, you see it all. You won't regret reading this book.

Thank you @NetGalley and #montlakeromance for sending me this Advance Reader Copy (ARC) in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. (Release Date | 10 December 2019) SYNOPSIS | Morgan Grant finds it extremely difficult to coexist with her sixteen year old daughter (Clara). Morgan got married and had Clara at a very young age and she doesn't want her daughter to give up her dreams by rushing into a serious relationship, & Clara has no intention of becoming her mother. Chris (Morgan's husband) is the one who keeps the peace between them until one day he dies in a tragic accident. Now Morgan & Clara don't know how to deal with their grief and communicate with each other without their being resentment and misunderstandings. MY THOUGHTS | Never in this world did I think I would be approved for an ARC of a Colleen Hoover book, but my dreams have been answered and this was fantastic. I absolutely love stories that show the same event from multiple people's perspectives and this did that so wonderfully. I rooted for the characters & the romance and I gorged this whole thing in less than

Morgan’s teenage mistake has led to the best thing in her life. Her daughter Clara. When Claras father and Morgan’s husband, Chris tragically dies in a car accident, Clara and Morgan have to find a way to grieve, but also coexist. Tensions have always been high between them, but the loss of her father throws Clara into a whirlwind of acting out. This was a beautiful story of mother/daughter relationships. I was definitely able to relate at times, because I think I have always been harder on my mom than on my dad, and she has always been harder on me than my brothers. I felt for Clara, but also wanted to smack her at times. I can’t imagine all the pain Morgan was going through (no spoilers!) Overall, Colleen Hoover did it again. This book will make you happy, sad, and all the feelings in between. You will hate the characters at times, but root for them at others. I highly recommend this book.

"I liked them (snowglobes) because they reminded me of life. How sometimes, it feels like someone is shaking the world around you, and things are flying at you from every direction, but if you wait long enough, everything will start to calm. I liked that feeling of knowing that the storm inside always eventually settles. - Clara Grant" Colleen Hoover has always been one of the writers whose works I have always wanted to read but couldn't. I remember reading a couple of chapters 'It Ends WIth Us' back in my high school and how much I was engrossed in it but couldn't spare time to complete it. And after high school, I couldn't pick it up again. To this day, it remains to be one of my regrets. I have a couple of books by her, still on my shelf, waiting to be read. So, the moment I saw 'Regretting You' on NetGalley, I took it as a sign and took the arc. I know that I sound so stupid saying all of this but I am so ecstatic that I finally read a book by Colleen Hoover and it was THIS book! I'll be using the original book description because I couldn't write one without spoiling: 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 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 haven't read a book in a while which makes my heart throb because it has come to an end and sit for hours, staring at the void with a stupid grin (even though sadness had taken over every inch of me) on my face because that is how incredible the ending was! And the word 'incredible' feels so underrated too... The moment I started reading this book, I was transported amidst the pages and before I knew it, it's way past midnight and I am halfway into it. Going to the early morning class without sleep seemed worthy enough for this book. All I could think about, during my class is: how can I sneak out my phone and start reading it? This book felt like a loved one to me, whose presence I was missing so much and couldn't wait to get back to. It was a torture, not able to finish this book on one sitting. Even though my eyes were drooping due to lack of sleep, I read a couple of chapters and fell asleep, that night (total disrespect, I know.) I hated how the universe was trying to keep me from finishing this book because there were times when I was so afraid that I jinxed Hoover's books by ditching them on the first time. But finally, I completed reading it and I have absolutely no words.

This story is quite an emotional read. Oh, you won't be bawling your eyes out (well, maybe just a little bit here and there,) but there is a lot turmoil for the characters. It is a more subdued read. If you are looking for a light pick me up, this is not the book for you. There are some lighter and humorous scenes to keep it from getting too heavy, but the overall feel of the book is a little on the melancholy side. It's a very heartbreaking story too, as well as it is a story of surviving. When your life, and everything you thought you knew is turned upside down, how is one to survive and move on? A mother and daughter must figure out what is the truth and what has been an illusion. Not only are the two trying to survive the tragedy, but they have to figure out who they are... after. There is a romance too, and you will meet some sweet guys who help the girls on their journey. There are some shocking twists throughout the book. You'll feel empathy for the characters even when do things that may not be all that wise. You'll probably like them even more for those 'bad decisions.' It's a well told story that will be hard to put down. You'll look forward to seeing how things play out and if they will get their happy ending after all the heart ache and tragedy. I'd consider this to be a part YA novel and half Women's Lit. Since there is the daughters story and the mothers, it kinda mixes the two together. There is a very small amount of sexual content, but it is not all that graphic. (Just enough so you know what's going on.) *I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley.

4.5 stars--REGRETTING YOU by Colleen Hoover is a contemporary, YA to adult, stand alone multi-genre story line focusing on thirty-four year old, Morgan Grant and her sixteen year old daughter Clara. Told from dual first person perspectives (Morgan and Clara) using present day and memories from the past, REGRETTING YOU follows the struggling relationship between Morgan Grant and her sixteen year old daughter Clara. A tragic accident will claim the life of Morgan’s husband and Clara’s father Chris, an accident that will destroy not only the life of Morgan and Clara, but of Chris’ best friend Jonah Sullivan. Secrets will begin to unravel revealing years of betrayal and lies forcing Morgan, Clara and Jonah to wonder if everything about their lives were a lie. Like all teenagers, Clara struggles in the aftermath of her father’s tragic accident, and takes her frustration and anger out on her mother but unbeknownst to Clara there is more going on behind the scenes than anyone could have imagined. Morgan Grant battles between head and heart in the months following her husband’s death. Life goes on but guilt and the overwhelming knowledge of betrayal and deception force Morgan to step back and reconsider where everyone goes, from here. REGRETTING YOU follows three separate paths that intersect and converge: we follow sixteen year old Clara as she discovers first love; Morgan Grant as she discovers the truth; and a mother-daughter relationship that implodes in the aftermath of death, and the ultimate betrayal. The cast of colorful secondary and supporting characters include Chris Grant’s best friend Jonah Sullivan; Morgan’s sister Jenny; Clara’s boyfriend Miller Adams, and her best friend Lexie. REGRETTING YOU is a story of betrayal, secrets and lies; of revelations, heartbreak and grief; of second chances, acceptance and moving forward. Colleen Hoover pulls the reader into a captivating and intense story of family, friendship, and the true meaning of love. The premise is raw, real and edgy; the characters are passionate and angry. A tragic story of love, loss and lies, REGRETTING YOU is a story you won’t soon forget.

The Genres for this book are Family Drama, Fiction, Women's Fiction, and Romance. The timeline for this novel is in the present and goes to the past when it pertains to the characters and events in the story. The author describes her dramatic characters as complex and complicated.

A poignant, emotional read surrounding love, loss, and grief recovery. Colleen Hoover has done an amazing job with her narrative shifts and creating real-life, palpable characters. This book has a heavy emotional feel with interwoven romantic aspects. Definitely not for those looking for a light read as the storyline is quite consuming. 5 stars.

As a mother of a boy, much like this author, I wasn't sure how writing about a mother/daughter dynamic could work but I guess that is what makes Colleen Hoover, well Colleen Hoover. (and yes, I know she is a daughter but that's only half of that relationship) I'm beginning to believe Hoover can write anything that comes to her mind and make it resonate with everyone reading, whether they like it or not. My heart physically ached reading this one. It's been a long while since that has happened. The dueling POV's really drove this story and made it exactly what it needed to be. I felt both Clara and Morgan's pain for very different reason. Clara because I was a teenager once and because sometimes I wonder if what she was feeling losing her dad is what my own child feels. Or maybe it helped me understand him just a little bit more. I felt EVERYTHING Morgan felt in this one. There is nothing stronger than a mother's love and with that is not only shouldering our own heartache but that of our children. Hoover made that heartache bleed off the ages and sink its claws into you. This is another great, original story by this author and I know it won't be one I easily forget. It may even be one I pick up again and again.

What you think you know...Oh this story you are going to have some serious feelings. Old COHO for me. Those feelings of wanting to see what's coming and wanting to being able to jump into a page and stop it , but really not knowing what is happening also. I know it seems confusing, it seem hard to understand that's what makes it worth the read. The pull of the story , the tug of the unknown . Then it all starts to unravel and you just keep reading and you cant stop... you feel everything you're in want you're in like you're in hate you're stunned you're in love you're in anger you're in love you're feeling everything but with every page comes a different moment . The Dual POV gives you insight into each side, you're able to understand their reasons for their actions. You are part of the pages. I understood it. I connected so much with this. It was hard and beautiful, and I loved every single page.

Oh how I love Colleen Hoover’s writing. I’ve long been a fan, ever since reading Maybe Someday in December of 2014. I was hooked from that first book, and I was so excited to have the opportunity to review Regretting You! Regretting You tells the story of Morgan and her daughter Clara. Morgan got pregnant with Clara when she was seventeen years old, and put her life on hold to marry Clara’s father Chris. Now seventeen years later, Morgan is struggling with her next move. Clara thinks her mother is predictable and boring. She wants nothing more than to be an actress and go to acting school after graduation. After a tragic accident turns their world upside down, they are forced to come together to deal with the fallout. In true Colleen Hoover fashion, Regretting You was a gut punch at several points. I came into the book with one idea about the plot and it threw me a curveball from early on. I won’t give too much away but be prepared to be emotional right from the beginning. It definitely felt reminiscent of her first book, Slammed, especially in tone, which I loved! I read it over the span of two days, and it was over all too soon. Thank you to @netgalley and @amazonpublishing for the opportunity to read and review Regretting You!

Morgan is a mother trying to protect her daughter from truths that she thinks will hurt her. She is right, these truths will hurt her but not knowing is hurting just as much. Clara has a truth that she is not sharing and it is hurting her also. The mother/daughter relationship between these two was perfectly portrayed. They are close, they love each other, and they are lashing out on each other because of all of that. Clara pushes the boundaries, Morgan gives her punishments, it just goes around and around. I love this storyline. There is angst, there is lost, but mostly there is love. The multiple relationships in this book are all unique and all real. The teenage relationship is interesting and very real to life. They find each other, steal kisses, sneak around, and get caught. As a mom, you have to choose your battles and Morgan does a great job of doing just that. Her own relationship is careful and thought out. She considers all who will be affected by her choices in all she does and is an amazingly unselfish mother and friend.

Thanks goes to the publisher, via Net-Galley, to read and review Regretting You by Colleen Hoover in advance of publication. I thoroughly enjoyed this amazing book! My opinions are my own and are not influenced in any way. Regretting You is a unique reading experience. While there are love stories involved, the romances are an element of this book, not the main focus. Regretting You follows the grief process for the mother and daughter when they suddenly lose their loved ones. Both characters go through the different stages of grief, each in their own way. The writing is fantastic, pulling me into the story from the first page and kept me enthralled until the last! Morgan Grant’ character is the mother, and not only does she lose two loved ones, she finds out there’s mysterious circumstances involved. She experiences loss, betrayal, anger, bewilderment, all at the same time. Her responses are visceral and sharp, and I could feel the emotions as if they were my own. Clara’s character is the sixteen-year-old daughter who has idolized both loved ones she lost. She is unaware that mysterious circumstances exist because Morgan doesn’t want Clara’s image of them tarnished. Clara is confused by her mother’s reaction. She acts out, as many teenagers do when confused and hurting, and with a boy she has a crush on, one her father didn’t like; hence, her mother doesn’t trust him either. Lots of angst and emotions roiling in this tale of love and loss! Since I don’t want to have any spoilers, (This has been a difficult review to pen without giving anything away) I won’t share my thoughts on all aspects of the love interests of both characters. I will say I enjoyed the path both follow and wanted each to have a happy ending. Regretting You is a fascinating reading experience. If you enjoy novels with the full range of emotions and a unique plot, then you will love this incredible tale of loss and recovery. While this is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Hoover, it will not be the last. Happy reading!

Believe it or not, this is the first book written by Colleen Hoover that I have read. I have no idea why I haven't picked her books up before now. I have read many glowing reviews of her work over the years and her books always sounded like something I would like. I already own several of her books and my own daughter has told me that I really need to read her work. But I never did until this book. Now I understand why everyone raves about her books because I loved this book! This was one heck of a story and I had a fabulous time with it from beginning to end. The book opens with Morgan, Chris, Jenny, and Jonah as teenagers. Morgan is Jenny's older sister and Chris's girlfriend. Jenny and Jonah are dating and Jonah and Chris are best friends. They are a tight group that likes to have fun. Morgan realizes that her life may be about to change forever and she doesn't know what to think. Then the story jumps ahead 17 years and we meet Clara, Morgan and Chris's teenage daughter. Jenny and Jonah are around as well and now share a child. It looks like a pretty good life. This book was pretty emotional at times. My heart broke for this group of characters one minute and I was angry for what they were going through the next. The relationships in this book all felt so real to me and I liked that we got to see so many different types of connections. Through Clara's point of view, we were able to see her relationship with her parents and watch as she navigated a new relationship. From Morgan's point of view, we saw a mother who wanted the best for her daughter even if they weren't always on the same page. Morgan had a lot of things to work out and I thought that the emotions that she went through all felt very real. I would highly recommend this book to others. This was a wonderful story that tackled a mother-daughter relationship, a teenage romance, and things that are out of our control. I will definitely be reading more from Colleen Hoover very soon. I received a digital review copy of this book from Montlake Romance via NetGalley.
