NeverEnough
Summary
Longing to forget the pain of his wife’s death, Brock Shaw has immersed himself in the one thing that lets him escape the guilt. Bull riding. But life on the road means leaving his young son at home with his parents. They want him to give up his career and be a father to his child, but Brock needs the adrenaline to get through each day . . . or so he thinks.
Lincoln Pratt needs a fresh start. As a top interior designer in Atlanta, she has everything she could ever want, but she’s always at her father’s mercy. Something’s missing, and Lincoln knows she’ll only find it somewhere far away—like the rolling pastures of Hamilton, Montana, where she meets the irresistibly mysterious Brock.
In Brock Shaw, Lincoln sees the part of her that’s missing. In Lincoln Pratt, Brock sees the part of himself he thought he’d lost. But the pain of his past binds him. Can he let himself love again?

Never Enough Excerpt


Betty Jane handed me a set of keys. “Here, these are his. Make sure he gets out of here and safely home.”

My hand instinctively took the keys, and I sat there for a few moments, stunned. When I finally realized Betty Jane was putting me in charge of getting Brock home, I jumped up and followed her over to the bar.

“Wait! Ty said you would make sure Brock got to his truck and slept it off. He didn’t say anything about making sure he got home.”

Betty Jane loaded up empty beer bottles onto her tray. It was then I looked around the bar and noticed it was almost empty.

“What time is it?” I asked, reaching for my phone. “It’s almost one!”

She laughed. “Yep, it’s been real fun watching you give dirty looks to Lee for the last hour. I figured I’d help a girl out and get rid of her for you.”

When I looked back at the table, Brock had his head on it.

Good grief. Is he sleeping?

“What do you mean, get rid of her?” I asked, still trailing behind the waitress, who honestly looked to be just a few years older than me.

She stopped and faced me. “I’ve been doing this job since I was eighteen. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to tell that you’ve got a thing for our Brock. I can’t blame ya, really. He’s a looker. Those blue eyes and dimples. Not to mention the way the man can fill out a pair of Wranglers. Throw in he’s a professional bull rider and worth some money, and you’ve got yourself one sought-after cowboy. He doesn’t normally come in here and get drunk like this, so I’m going to guess he’s had a bad day and he’s trying to drink away his problems.

“Now, the way I see it is, he seems to be smitten with you, and you’re smitten with him. So, it only makes sense that you get him home safely. What happens after that is your business, but just know that the rest of the town will most likely find out within seventy-two hours—unless you’re discreet about it.”

I stood frozen in place. What in the world is this lady talking about?

“Okay, I didn’t really understand half of that, but you’re very wrong on one thing. Brock Shaw is not . . . smitten . . . with me. It’s really the opposite. I don’t think he can stand me.”

Betty Jane winked. “Ralph will help you get him out to his truck.”

“But . . . I . . . my . . . I’m not . . . wait!”

Placing her hand on her hip, she rolled her eyes. “Listen, I’ve got to finish cleaning up and then kick everyone out of here. Just spit it out, would ya?”

“My car! I have my car here. I can’t leave it.”

“Oh, you don’t have to worry about it being left here. It’s perfectly fine.”

She turned and walked away. When I called out for her again, she ignored me.

I turned around and walked back over to the table to find a sleeping Brock. Burying my face in my hands, I mumbled, “Oh my God! Why me?” Poking his shoulder, I said, “Brock! Brock, wake up!”

His head popped up, and I let out a little yelp.

He turned to look at me, and instead of frowning, he smiled for once. “Hey, pretty little thing.”

He’s so drunk he doesn’t even know who I am.

“Um, hey. Listen, I need to get you home, so could you maybe stand and walk out to your truck?”

Brock smiled bigger, and his dimples seemed to scream out at me.

Oh. Holy. Hell.

This guy was beyond good looking. I mean, I didn’t think I’d ever seen a guy smile and look so damn sexy, despite his highly intoxicated state. Even with his cowboy hat all crooked, he looked handsome as hell.

“I can stand,” he grumbled out as he slowly stood.

I slipped my arm around his waist. After doing a quick scan of the table, I reached behind me and felt for my phone. I had my license and credit card tucked into my phone case, and I had my keys in my pocket.

“Okay, let’s get you to your truck.”

His head dropped forward, and I was pretty sure he was falling back asleep.

“Brock!” I shouted, making his head jerk up. “Walk to the door.”

“What do you adore?” he asked, taking a few stumbling steps next to me as I guided him.

I chuckled. “No, I said, walk to the door!”

“I am walking to the door, woman!”

With a roll of my eyes, I focused on keeping this man upright. It wasn’t an easy task. His stocky frame was heavy. With the way my arm was around him, I couldn’t help but notice his muscles flexing as we walked . . . no, stumbled along. I let my silly mind wander to what he would look like without a shirt on.

Stop it right now, Lincoln Pratt!

Betty Jane opened the door for us and winked at me yet again as I walked by. “Have a good night, and don’t worry about your car!”

I mumbled under my breath about being set up and then stepped out into the cool night. A shiver ran up my spine as I searched the parking lot. I’d only seen Brock’s truck once, and the only thing I remembered was that it was silver.

“Where’s your truck?” I asked, glancing at three trucks still parked in the lot.

Brock lifted his head and looked around. “My truck is the best damn truck in the parking lot.”

“That doesn’t help, Shaw. What’s your license plate number?”

Brock turned, his big, drunk blue eyes gazing down at me. “You want my number, Lincoln? I thought you didn’t like me.”

My mouth dropped open. “Um, excuse me, but you’re the one who’s been shooting daggers at me all night long. Not to mention how rude you were to me earlier today.”

“You didn’t catch me at my best, sweetheart.”

My stomach dipped at the endearment. No one had ever called me anything like that. Not baby, babe, sweetie, or sweetheart. I was always just Lincoln. Every guy I’d ever dated called me by my first name. Even in bed, I was always Lincoln.

It pissed me off how much I liked hearing that come from Brock’s mouth. I liked it a lot . . . more than a lot.

Damn it. What is it about this guy?

“I didn’t ask you for your phone number, you drunk fool. Your license plate number on your truck.”

He frowned. “I don’t know.”

“You don’t know the license plate on your own truck?”

“Nope!” he said, popping the p in the most adorable way.

I found myself smiling up at him.

“It’s the silver one on the far right!” Betty Jane called out.

I looked behind me, almost losing my grip on Brock. “And I don’t suppose you’d help me get him there . . . or Ralph, maybe?”

She laughed. She actually laughed before turning and walking back into the bar.

“Thanks for nothing,” I grumbled as I guided Brock over to the truck.

Q&A: Author Kelly Elliott
1) In just a few short years you have published dozens of books and climbed bestsellers lists. Tell us a bit about your crazy fast rise in the romance world? 
Honestly, it has been a dream come true! I sometimes feel like I have to pinch myself. I’m very humbled by the success I’ve been able to achieve and do not take a second of it for granted. I think one of my favorite things has been getting to meet so many amazing readers along this journey.

2) You just started a new series with Never Enough. What can readers expect from these stories?
They can expect stores filled with love, hope, second chances, some tears, and also some laughter. Family and friends play a major role in each book and that is always important to me. My goal with each book is to give the reader a chance to escape reality for a bit while making them fall so in love with the characters they want to revisit them often!
3) This series takes place in Montana with some seriously sexy heroes—bull riders, ropers, ranchers. What makes these Alpha men that work with their hands so irresistible?
Who doesn’t love a cowboy right!? I think it is their charm and ability to make us swoon that makes them so irresistible. Of course it helps I’m married to my own cowboy so he often inspires the heroes in my books!

4) To add a little something special to the mix, your first heroine, Lincoln, comes from Georgia and practically oozes southern charm (certainly enchanting your hero as she goes). What made you decide that this H/h would work so well?
In the very beginning I knew Lincoln had to be from somewhere other than Montana. Me being a southern girl myself, it felt right for her move from a southern state and I love Georgia. In the beginning of the book we find a very different Brock and I knew I had to have a strong heroine who knew who she was and what she wanted. She had no problem confronting Brock and I loved that about her. From the very beginning I knew these two were meant to be.

5) If Brock Shaw had a song dedicated to him, it would be Katy Perry’s Hot N Cold considering the fact that his emotions about Lincoln change with the breeze. This is mainly due to his past—tell us about his journey.
Oh Brock. He gave me a bit of whiplash in the beginning of this book. LOL! He is filled with so many different emotions, guilt, anger, regret, and when Lincoln comes into his life like she does you can almost feel his struggle. He wants to move on from the past, but he honestly doesn’t think he deserves to. He used his career to bury all these emotions for years and when he is confronted with them he is really confronted. I think Lincoln was the happiness he had always longed for and it didn’t take him long to realize that. But that realization came fear, which he had to overcome.
6) Lincoln isn’t quite running away from home, but she certainly is running towards a new life. How does Brock, and his son Blayze, fit into her plans?
I don’t think Lincoln was looking for those two cowboys when she first started towards her new journey, but when they came into her world they both were piece of the puzzle she hadn’t even realized was missing. The three of them fit together so beautifully.

7) At the center of this story is loss, but also redemption. Is this a theme that we will see going throughout your Meet Me in Montana books?
I think you will see the emotions kicked up a bit with each book in the series. Book two really focuses on healing and finding that one person who is your true love. Your soulmate.

Excerpt

“Do you think people will judge me if Colton sleeps here when there are guests?” Susannah blurted out the next morning when Mallory came over to see how things were going with the guests.

“Um…hey. Good morning to you too,” she said with a smile, walking over to the antique buffet table in the dining room and helping herself to a glass of juice. Glass in hand, she turned back to Susannah. “I’m sorry, what was the question again?”

Susannah relayed the conversation she had with Colton the night before and spoke in hushed tones because guests were still coming and going. “So? He’s being crazy, right? I mean, no one’s going to think anything of it. He’s just being overly cautious.”

“Well…”

“No,” Susannah interrupted. “People aren’t that closed-minded about things like this anymore. And besides, it’s no one’s business! It’s not like I’ve got a revolving door of men sleeping with me! It’s one man and one that I love! Doesn’t that count for anything?” It wasn’t until she noticed Mallory’s eyes had gone wide and then heard someone clear their throat that she realized just how loud she had gotten. Luckily, when she turned around, she saw it was her nephew Mason and his fiancée Scarlett. Embarrassed, Susannah scurried around wiping down a table for them, offering them coffee and juice.

Mason kissed her on the cheek before doing the same to Mallory. It wasn’t until he had Scarlett seated that he spoke. “So, um…not that I was eavesdropping…”

“Oh, God…” Susannah groaned.

“But if I could add my two cents to the topic,” he said with an easy grin.

“Mason,” Mallory interjected. “Maybe you shouldn’t.”

He held up a hand to stop her. “Look, personally, I agree with you. It isn’t anyone’s business who you’re involved with and whether or not they’re sleeping here with you.”

“Thank you.”

“However,” he continued, “you know what small town life is like. Now, granted, you aren’t only opening your doors to the people of Magnolia Sound to stay here, but your guests are going to be interacting with the people and business owners in town and…well…you know, people talk.”

“But they’ve been dating for a year,” Scarlett commented. “I don’t see what’s different all of a sudden.”

“Thank you, Scarlett,” Susannah said with a smile, pouring her a glass of orange juice. “Nothing’s different.”

“Except now people are staying here and you’ve opened the home to the public and – therefore – to scrutiny and gossip too,” Mallory said. When Susannah tried to comment, she stopped her. “Look, I’m not saying I agree with it, Mom, but it’s just something you need to be aware of. When you own a business in this town, everyone feels like they have a right to comment on what you do and how you do it. I get it at the shop all the time. People come in and will comment on what pieces of furniture they don’t like all the way to whether or not they like what I’m wearing that day! And don’t even get me started on when they come in and comment on something Jake or Coleman Construction did! It’s maddening!”

“I had no idea…”

Scarlett nodded and raised her hand a bit. “Now that Mallory’s mentioned it, I can totally agree. I saw it with my dad’s garage and my grandfather’s bar. People talk. And it’s not always about the business itself. You get one uptight guest in here or someone local suddenly gets wind of or actually sees Colton’s truck here all night and it will become part of the dialogue when people talk about the inn.”

“I can’t believe that would happen,” Susannah scoffed.

“But are you willing to take that chance?” Mallory asked. “Look, as a mature and responsible adult, one could argue that this is your house and you can do what you want.”

“Exactly!”

“However,” Mallory went on, “it could also be argued that you’re old enough to handle not sleeping with your boyfriend every night. So if he isn’t here on the nights you have guests, it shouldn’t be a big deal.”

“But what if she’s booked every night for months?” Mason asked. “She and Colton aren’t allowed to…you know…during all that time?”

Both Scarlett and Mallory laughed but Susannah wasn’t amused.

“Look,” he said, “I’m not saying you two can’t get busy on your own while the guests are out or maybe you have someone working overnight so you can go to his place, but that’s going to get old fast.”

“Ew, you did not just talk about my mom getting busy,” Mallory said with disgust. “That’s just gross.”

“Oh, grow up,” he said with a laugh, pouring himself a cup of coffee. “We all do it and personally, I think it’s great that she and Colton have a good sex life!”

“No one said that!” Mallory cried.

“If they didn’t, then we wouldn’t be talking about finding a way for Colton to spend the night,” he countered. “If she wasn’t interested in sex with him, then she wouldn’t care about sending him home at the end of the day.”

“Okay, okay, okay,” Susannah said quickly. “That’s enough. I’m not…this is not the conversation I want to be having and now I’m completely mortified.”

“Mom, you don’t have to be mortified. Sex is a completely natural part of a healthy relationship. That is what you once told Sam, wasn’t it? You know, after he came home and saw Colton leaving?”

Groaning, Susannah hung her head and shook it. Why had she thought it was a good idea to ask her daughter about this?

“Of course, this wouldn’t be an issue if you would have accepted Colton’s proposal,” Mallory added.

“Holy crap! Colton proposed?” Mason asked loudly and Scarlett punched him in the arm. “Sorry. I just…wow! How come you turned him down? We all thought that’s where you guys were heading.”

Straightening, Susannah looked from Mason to Scarlett to Mallory and then back to Mason. “You did?”

He nodded. “Hell yeah. You guys were great together and it was nice to see you so happy. Plus, Colt’s a really cool guy. I always enjoy hanging out and talking with him when the family’s all together.” Then he paused. “Wait…if you turned him down, why are you worried about him sleeping here?”

“Just because she turned down his proposal doesn’t mean she wanted to end things with him,” Scarlett said, but Mason was shaking his head.

“Then he’s a better man than I am. If I had proposed to you and you turned me down, I don’t think I would be able to keep dating you.”

Scarlett patted his hand. “Dude, we’re having a baby. If I had turned down your proposal, we still would have been involved with each other.”

Rolling his eyes, he explained, “That’s not what I meant. If circumstances were different and you weren’t pregnant and I proposed…”

“Ah, got it.” Then she nodded. “Yeah, I don’t think I would want to keep dating you if I turned down your proposal.”

“What if you just weren’t ready?” Susannah asked, fascinated at the turn in the conversation. “I mean, what if you loved him, but you just weren’t ready to get married?”

Scarlett considered that for a moment. “Well, I think we would have talked about it and maybe agree that I’d accept the proposal but that we wouldn’t even think about planning a wedding until I was ready.”

Interesting.

Looking at Mason, Susannah asked, “And how would that have made you feel? Would you prefer putting a ring on her finger even though there’s a chance she might never want to get married?”

“Hmm…I don’t know. I don’t know if I could keep going like that. In the back of my mind I’d always be wondering if she was ever going to change her mind. It would put so much extra pressure on the relationship. Plus, I think I’d start wondering how long I’m supposed to wait. If I’m the kind of guy who wants to get married, that means I want a marriage and kids and all that goes with it. Am I supposed to give up on what I want while I’m waiting for her to figure out what’s stopping her? I mean, I’m an awesome catch!”

Scarlett smacked his arm playfully. “Feeling pretty full of yourself this morning, Bishop. What’s up with that?”

“Oh, please, I’m like this all the time and you know it,” he teased right before leaning in and kissing her.

While they seemed to get lost in each other, Mallory slowly walked over to Susannah. “Seems to me there’s a lot more for you to consider than just being able to sleep with your boyfriend.”

And as she strolled from the room, Susannah had to agree.

Until she meets Luc Valencia.

The Mexican-American contractor is just trying to do his best. Since his father handed him the reins to the family business, every day is a test to prove himself. At this point in his life, professionalism has to be his top priority.

Starting over was her only option.

Forty-years old and still reeling from a public and painful divorce, Thalia Blackwood is looking for a fresh start, somewhere far away from her upside down life. When she’s offered a new job as the sports therapist for a football (soccer) team, she jumps at the chance. This is just what she needs to leave the heartbreak and shame of Manchester behind, trading it in for the warmth and hopeful vibrancy of Madrid.

He was her only desire.

Twenty-three year old Alejo Albarado is rising up the ranks in his career. As the charming forward for the Real Madrid team, Alejo’s life revolves around women, parties, and being a tabloid darling, that is until the new sports therapist joins the team.

Their passion could not be ignored.

What starts out as a strictly professional relationship between Thalia and the young Spanish player, slowly evolves into something more. Much more.

Their relationship was forbidden.

But their combustible chemistry and simmering sexual tension can only go so far—should Thalia give into Alejo’s advances, she’s at risk of not only losing her job, but succumbing to a much younger man will drag her through the spotlight again.

Alejo might be worth that risk.

Unless he breaks her heart in the process.

The Younger Man is a full-length standalone romance. Characters from Love, in English make a cameo in this book, however The Younger Man is intended to be read as a STANDALONE.

Get your binge on with this must-read enemies to lovers, second chance romance!

Landon & Shay AMAZON (1).jpg

Once upon a time, I fell in love with a boy.

A beautiful, broken boy who had his own world of struggles.

People warned me against our love, but I didn’t listen.

We looked weak.

Young, foolish.

Dangerously in love.

We didn’t care.

In order to keep our hearts protected from the opinions of others, we became each other’s secret.

We shared stolen moments. Tender touches. Secretive embraces.

It was our twisted love story, and it worked for us up until our lives changed forever.

The boy I loved became Hollywood’s newest golden boy.

His career blossomed as mine stalled.

He found massive success as I discovered multiple failures.

He made something of himself, while my dreams never came true.

We moved into different realms where our pieces no longer fit together.

In the fairy tales, love conquered all.

In reality, love was the main reason empires began to fall.

I always knew Landon belonged in my story.

He was my beginning, middle, and end.

The only problem? I wasn’t certain I still belonged in his.

Review:

Landon & Shay Part II is the highly anticipated conclusion to Landon and Shay’s epic love story.
Part II is just amazing as Part I. I fell in love with the characters and the story in part I – it’s my top read in 2019 and is not to be missed.
The excellent writing by this outstanding author blew me away, just like the beautiful words and the unique storyline.
L&S is a raw and gritty read that had me read it in one sitting. This book is everything, it gave me all the feels. The story spans decades and is a fst paced slow burn of it’s finest.
This is not a stand alone, the books must be read ion order or you’ll be lost.
I recommend the book and the duet, 5+ stars.

“Oh my gosh, tell us everything.” Raine beamed as she sat across from Landon at the dining room table with her chin on her hands in amazement. “Tell me everything about being famous.”

That privacy I thought Landon and I would get?

Not going to happen with Raine living in the same place as me. She was so giddy seeing her best friend, and I couldn’t blame her. I was just as excited—even more so than her.

Landon looked so good, so grown-up.

He had facial hair that was groomed to perfection, and he smelled like sex appeal and honey. Since he’d arrived, I hadn’t allowed myself to be far from his side.

I sat in the chair next to him, and he hadn’t removed his hand from my thigh, massaging it up and down.

“I’m not famous.” Landon chuckled, giving Raine a smile. “I honestly don’t know what’s been happening to me, or why it’s been happening to me, but I feel like I’ll one day wake up and it will all be a dream.”

“You know what I hate?” Raine asked, crinkling her nose up.

“What’s that?” Landon replied.

“When really famous people claim they aren’t famous. That’s like when rich kids are like ‘Oh, I’m not rich, my parents are.’ Like, shut up, Susan. You can’t say you’re not rich while driving your Mercedes Benz wearing your Gucci shoes. That’s not how that works.”

I chuckled at my dramatic friend. “She is right, though. You are famous, Landon. The world has seen your tushy in boxer briefs. That’s the top layer of fame.”

“And what a cute little tushy-wushy it is,” Raine mocked, leaning over to pinch his cheeks. “I’m a proud big sister.”

“For the millionth time, I’m older than you, Raine,” Landon remarked.

“By age, not by maturity.” She darted her eyes back and forth between the two of us. Then her stare moved to Landon’s hand caressing my upper thigh. “Is this about to get a little PG-13? Should I leave?”

“You should probably leave,” I joked.

She nodded in agreement. “Okay, well, don’t make plans tomorrow night, Landon. We’re going to have everyone over for a reunion. Now, go do whatever it is you’re planning to do, you two lovebirds—but remember, these walls are thin, and my bedroom is right next door to Shay’s.”

I laughed. “I know, and I’m reminded of how thin the walls are every time Hank stays the night.”

She gave me a smile and a wink. “We broke the headboard the other night.”

Landon jumped in. “And I think that falls into the realm of too much information. I don’t want to think about Hank and you banging and breaking headboards. You are like a big sister to me, after all.”

Raine walked around and patted him on the back. “You’re old enough to know that your sister gets laid, Landon—at least four times a week in many different positions.”

“Raine,” Landon groaned, slapping his hand to his face. “Too much information.”

“I bet you won’t think it’s too much information when Shay breaks out some of the moves from the Kama Sutra book I gave her. Good night, kiddos.”

She hurried off, and Landon was staring at me with a highly arched eyebrow.

“What?” I asked.

“What’s this about a Kama Sutra book?” His lips curved up into a wicked grin.

I rolled my eyes. “It’s nothing. Raine is just a sex-driven girl. She said she and Hank needed to spice things up after being together so long.”

“I like spice. Spice is my favorite thing. What are some of the names of the moves in the book? What are we trying tonight?”

I felt my face heating up from the idea of it all. “None.”

He cocked an eyebrow. “Oh crap. You’ve really read this book, haven’t you?”

“What? No. Not at all.”

He smirked and pointed a finger. “You have one on the tip of your tongue. I can tell. Do share.”

“Well…” I pulled the collar of my shirt between my lips and shrugged. “There is this thing called the butterfly.”

The way his eyes smiled along with his lips made my cheeks heat even more. He rose to his feet. “Come on, let’s go. I’m going to butterfly the hell out of you.”

Review:

And there’s another winner. Hawk by Heidi McLaughlin is book four in her The Boys of Summer Series. There are a few cross-overs, but because every book is about another couple, every book can be read as a stand alone. For best reading experience I recommend to read the books in order. The previous books are Third Base; Home Run and Grand Slam.
This is Bellamy and Hawk’s story.
Bellamy is a single mom of a 7 year old and lives in a small town. She works as real estate agent. Her heart is breaking for her son – sorry not sorry, no spoilers here.
Hawk is on top of his Baseball world when he gets injured and relocates to his hometown for rehab.
He quickly discovers he’s an outsider not really wanted and the politics there are lets call it foreign to him. His heart beats for his sports and not much else. He longs for the love of his family.
Bellamy just longs for acceptance and love too.
These two so different people meet and hit it off right from the start. Don’t get me wrong, the story is a slow burn and that’s fitting. I started reading and was captivated from chapter one. I read the book, cover to cover in one sitting, I simply couldn’t put it down. The writing is excellent and the storyline is fantastic.
I recommend Hawk,4,5 stars.

Regretting You by Colleen Hoover

About the Book
Title: Regretting You
Author: Colleen Hoover
Release Date: December 10, 2019
Publisher: Montlake
RegrettingYouRegrettingYouGraphic1
Summary
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.

 
 
Excerpt: Regretting You by Colleen Hoover
 

Despite knowing I just pissed my mother off by being half an hour late for curfew, I still can’t stop smiling. That kiss with Miller was worth it. I bring my fingers to my lips.

I’ve never been kissed like that. The guys I’ve kissed in the past all seemed like they were in a hurry, wanting to shove their tongue in my mouth before I changed my mind.

Miller was the opposite. He was so patient, yet in a chaotic way. It was like he’d thought about kissing me so often that he wanted to savor every second of it.

I don’t know that I’ll ever not smile when I think about that kiss. It kind of makes me nervous for school tomorrow. I’m not sure where that kiss leaves us, but it felt like it was a statement. I just don’t know what exactly that statement was.

My phone buzzes in my back pocket. I roll over and pull it out, then fall onto my back again. It’s a text from Miller.

Miller: I don’t know about you, but sometimes when something significant happens, I get home and think of all the things I wish had gone differently. All the things I wish I would have said.

Me: Is that happening now?

Miller: Yes. I don’t feel like I was entirely forthcoming with you.

I roll onto my stomach, hoping to ease the nausea that just passed through me. It was going so well…

Me: What weren’t you honest about?

Miller: I was honest. Just not entirely forthcoming, if there’s a difference. I left a lot out of our conversation that I want you to know.

Me: Like what?

Miller: Like why I’ve liked you for as long as I have.

I wait for him to elaborate, but he doesn’t. I’m staring at my phone with so much intensity that I almost throw it when it rings unexpectedly. It’s Miller’s phone number. I hesitate before answering it, because I rarely ever talk on the phone. I much prefer texting. But he knows I have my phone in my hand, so I can’t very well send it to voice mail. I swipe my finger across the screen and then roll off the bed and head to my bathroom for more privacy. I sit on the edge of the tub.

“Hello?”

“Hey,” he says.

“Sorry. It’s too much to text.”

“You’re kind of freaking me out with all the innuendos.”

“Oh. No, it’s all good. Don’t be nervous. I just should have said this to you in person.” Miller inhales a deep breath, and then on the exhale, he starts talking. “When I was fifteen, I watched you in a school play. You had the lead role, and at one point, you performed a monologue that went on for like two whole minutes. You were so convincing and you looked so heartbroken I was ready to walk onto the stage and hug you. When the play was finally over and the actors came back out onto the stage, you were smiling and laughing, and there wasn’t a trace of that character left in you. I was in awe, Clara. You have this charisma about you that I don’t think you’re aware of, but it’s captivating. I was a scrawny kid as a sophomore, and even though I’m a year older than you, I hadn’t quite filled out yet, and I had acne and felt inferior to you, so I never worked up the courage to approach you. Another year went by, and I continued to admire you from afar. Like that time you ran for school treasurer and tripped walking off the stage, but you jumped up and did this weird little kick and threw your arms up in the air and made the entire audience laugh. Or that time Mark Avery popped your bra strap in the hallway, and you were so sick of him doing it that you followed him to his classroom, reached inside your hoodie, and took off your bra and then threw it at him. I remember you yelling something like, ‘If you want to touch a bra so damn bad, just keep it, you perv!’ Then you stormed out. It was epic. Everything you do is epic, Clara. Which is why I never had the courage to approach you, because an epic girl needs an equally epic guy, and I guess I’ve just never felt epic enough for you. I’ve said epic so many times in the last fifteen seconds—I’m so sorry.”

He’s out of breath when he finally stops talking.

I’m smiling so hard my cheeks ache. I had no idea he felt this way. No idea.

I wait a few seconds to make sure he’s done; then I finally respond. I’m pretty sure he can hear from my voice alone that I’m smiling. “First of all, it’s hard to believe you were ever insecure. And second, I think you’re pretty epic, too, Miller. Always have. Even when you were scrawny and had acne.”

He laughs a little. “Yeah?”

“Yeah.”

I can hear him sigh. “Glad I got that off my chest, then. See you at school tomorrow?”

“Good night.”

We end the call, and I don’t know how long I sit and stare at my phone.

Review:
Regretting You – Hoover in best form.
Regretting You by Colleen Hoover is a full length, stand lone romance novel with a twist.
The story spans years and actually tells two stories, interwoven. Morgan is happily married to her high school sweetheart with a 17 year old daughter when her life puts upside down. Not only has she to bear death, karma has a way to say ha it’s a heavy load to bear. Sorry no sorry no spoilers here.
On the other hand there’s Clara, her beloved daughter who’s grieving too. She’s acting out and dealing with typical teenager stuff at the same time. Difficult – to say it lightly.
Favorit Quote: ” We are all just one phone call away from our knees. “
The book is an unputdownable pageturner. I was hanging on the edge of my seat and couldn’t put it down. After It Ends With Us and Too Late, Regretting You is another outstanding and fantastic read by this author.
But, and yes, there’s a but, I’d knew for the life of me what was written in the letters. No offense Mrs. Hoover.
I recommend Regretting You. 5 Stars , hands down.

Q&A with Author Colleen Hoover
 

You are ‘label-less’ in the fact that you write in several genres. Readers never know what to expect next. If someone asks, how do you label yourself?

When I self-published my first novel I had no idea what genre to put it in. I thought I had written a drama but it turns to that I had written a romance. I’ve learned a lot since then, but I still don’t put a lot of weight in genre when I write. When your best friend is begging you to read a book, it’s not going to matter what genre it is when someone you trust is passionate about the story.

To keep all of your stories and characters straight, you must be very organized.

I’m the most disorganized person you will ever meet! I have no schedule. I can’t wake up before nine in the morning. I probably don’t go to bed until like three in the morning. I usually work about 16 hours a day.

What happens if you get blocked when you are writing?

If I get stuck writing, I go for a drive and play music. Music really helps me plot. I love The Avett Brothers, X Ambassadors, Airborne Toxic Event…I could go on and on.

What can you tell readers about your latest release Regretting You?

I would spoil it if I told you about it! Most of my books are like that. I can’t say what they are about or it spoils it. But I can say that Regretting You is told from a dual point-of-view centered on the inner lives of both a teen and adult protagonist.

Sounds like lots of different types of readers will be interested!

Absolutely. I wanted to write a book that bridged the gap between young adult and contemporary romance so that mothers can read with their daughters. I think it’s exciting to see people sharing reading experiences.
