Regretting You by Colleen Hoover

Title: Regretting You
Author: Colleen Hoover
Publication Date: December 2019
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 received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own."

I would like to thank @times.reads for providing me an Advance Copy of this book!

Wow. Just Wow. This book gives me all the feels. And as usual the lines, the words of wisdom would really cut you deep specially if your a mother yourself or you are a daughter yourself who experienced this kind of heartache once in your life.

Sometimes I am still in awe of how CoHo can transition and dial in to each character's POV in such a deep way. I just admire how she can make you feel so many emotions that it feels like it was happening to you, as if all those pains are your story to tell. It was really a great read.

This book is not your typical romance story. It was a story about a mother and a daughter. It has a very typical but mostly overlooked situation of how a mother and a daughter sometimes disagree with one another. It is a story of a mother who devoted all her life to her family. What will happen when the very reason why you wake up every morning was gone? And the only child you have is starting drift out away from you. *sniffing here*

What only keeps me from giving this a perfect star is that the plot, and thel turn of events and ending was what I expected it to be. Considering the situation that CoHo had chosen, it was a little bit very easy to guess how it will end.

A mother’s love is like nothing else in the world.
It’s both strong and gentle.
Loud and quiet.
Unrelenting and yielding.
Protecting and releasing.
Demanding and unassuming.
