Source: PublisherMorgan 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.
Every time Colleen Hoover writes a book, I add it to my TBR without even reading the synopsis. I love going into her books blind and I think that's what made me love Regretting You even more than I already did while reading it.
Since I went in blind for this one, I'm not going to mention anything about the plot. All I can say is that it deals with a mother and a daughter and their respective romances. We get both POVs in alternating chapters and I loved seeing their perspectives regarding their own romances and their relationship with one another. Both of them are at such different points of their lives with such different kinds of romances happening, and I loved both of them so much. I really do enjoy both YA and adult romances, so I think that's why I really connected with both perspectives in this story.
I will say that this book does deal with grief, so it was heart-wrentching to watch both Clara and Morgan dealing with their grief in their own ways. As a mother, Morgan has to protect Clara, so it was hard seeing Clara not understanding her mother when we knew what was going on because we saw it from Morgan's side too. The ending was adorable and I really loved how both romances in this book progressed.
If you can't tell, this was another great book from Colleen Hoover that I just devoured and could not stop reading. You won't want to put this down when you pick it up!
