About this deal

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. Overall, this is not my favorite Colleen Hoover book, but I think it’s still worth a read! Family relationships come front and center for this novel, so don’t expect a huge romantic plotline. But the way that Morgan and Clara deal with tragedy is definitely the highlight of this novel! STEP 2: Make the main male character as sexy as possible so that the woman has to fall for him. Then make him as trashy as possible. The only person who hasn’t closed the door on her completely is Ledger Ward, a local bar owner and one of the few remaining links to Kenna’s daughter. I don’t love it when the plot of a book turns on people’s assumptions and failures to communicate with one another—and boy, is that the case here so much—but Hoover gets you so wrapped up in these characters it doesn’t matter.

Forced to reach out to her last resort, Beyah has to spend the remainder of her summer on a peninsula in Texas with a father she barely knows. The mother daughter relationship that y’all praised this book for (and maybe I don’t have a place to judge because what do I know about being a parent??) grated on my nerves. I didn’t like the way they treated each other. It was really hard to root for either of them when you, being the reader, knew what was going on. The misunderstanding was frustrating to no end. I liked this book a great deal, mostly because the writing craft is so strong. It’s written in two points of view, the daughter and the mother. It’s in present tense, which makes the story more immediate. This could easily be a five star for me but unfortunately I read this book after The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, and Daisy and The Six, both stellar books and a difficult act to follow. I thought the plot needed expanding. I needed to understand and know more about Chris and Jenny's affair. Why? It had been going on for a long time. When did it start and how did it develop?Fed up with the lies, Merit decides to shatter the happy family illusion that she’s never been a part of before leaving them behind for good. How do we deal with grief? What does it take to give second chances? How can we let go of the past and move forward in life? What are the struggles of a mother when dealing with teenage love? How can we learn from our mistakes? Book club questions for Regretting You by Colleen Hoover explore the meaning behind family, first love, grief, loyalty and betrayal. You’re the first and only person in this world I’ve ever loved without some reasoning or justification behind it.”

But the bridges Kenna burned are proving impossible to rebuild. Everyone in her daughter’s life is determined to shut Kenna out, no matter how hard she works to prove herself. The third installment in Colleen Hoover’s immensely popular series has the story told from the point of view of Will, Layken’s love in the original two books. This is a genuine story of young newlyweds, and the years of discovery still going on between these two beloved characters. Morgan was 17 when she gave birth to her daughter, Clara. She and her boyfriend Chris got married when they found out she was pregnant, and the course of her life was different than she imagined it would be. Although she wishes she would’ve been able to finish college and get a job, she doesn’t regret the years she spent taking care of her daughter. There were a few things about the plot that made me a little dissatisfied as a reader that I’ll mention below in the spoilers, but everything flowed well together as it always does in a Colleen Hoover book. The characters just really left me aggravated sometimes (especially Clara) because of their actions. However, I think that just goes to show even more how amazing of a writer Colleen Hoover is because if her characters made me feel nothing at all it would be a different kind of review. I felt angry with her characters, hurt, betrayed, and all of the emotions that make a good book. This one just didn’t speak to me as much as the other books I’ve read by Hoover.Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike. Here’s what I did like. The duo pair romance worked surprisingly well despite one being an adult and the other as young adult. The ending was so heartfelt and adorable. The last 30% of the book was the only time I felt emotional and not full on rage. Meanwhile, the writing was seamless and addicting. I’ve read the majority of CoHo’s books, and at this point I know not to doubt her story telling skills. Below are my book club and discussion questions for Regretting You! Personally I thought there are so many things to try to understand about this book and I deeply enjoyed the analysis I’ve had with my family. 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. I can only say that: I loved Morgan’s strength and standing for her daughter to save her from emotional turmoil even it makes her look like an unlikable mother.
