My Review: 

4.5 Star Review – Expired Regrets


I recommend this book.

I enjoyed this book by Megan.  This book includes passion, laughs, heartache, pain, jealousy, and betrayal.  The book will suck you right in and have you engrossed so you are reading the end before you know it.  Some parts are really heartbreaking so pack your tissues you might just need them.   

The beginning of this book is told in Rose’s POV but in a few chapters near the end it changes to Bryant’s POV and then back to Rose’s POV.

This book started out right after a horrific car accident scene which has the feel of Rose dying.

You are then transformed back 4 years to Rose’s senior year of high school when she meets a new guy named Bryant Matthews.  After witnessing her best friend Leslie flirting with him she gets jealous and ends up leaving her friend behind at the barn where they rides horses every day. 

She avoids her friend for a while until her friend calls multiple times in a row.  Leslie explains that Bryant was asking all about her and has no interest in Leslie.  Rose feels so guilty about avoiding her friend.  Once again Rose and Leslie are fine.

Rose decides she will seek out Bryant and he tells her she is too young for him as he is a senior in college.  They live in two different worlds and it would never work.  Rose is broken hearted. 

The next day Rose takes a fall off her horse and ends up hurting herself.  Bryant witnesses the fall and comes over to help her out.  After wrapping her wrist he steals a kiss.  They begin spending time together at the barn where they ride and store there horses.  As Rose falls more in love with Bryant everyday she wonders what he feels.

All the kids that store there horses at the barn have to work at an annual Harvest Festival.  When Bryant shows up with his friends she does not even introduce them to Rose.  She feels rejected so when one of the guys that came with Bryant named Jordan shows her attention she is torn.  She loves Bryant but Jordan is so easy to be around. 

As the days follow both Bryant and Jordan both try to win over Rose.  They even come to blows over her.  As they both tell her they love her who will she pick?  Will she pick the right one?  Will they last? 

Who will win?  Bryant who is always rejecting her and making her heart hurt with the way he treats her?   Or will she pick Jordan who is sweet, always protecting her, and easy to be with? 

Rose has a tragic past that made her shutdown and not date for a long time.  What new tragic things are in store for her?

What team are you on Jordan or Bryant!

About DEATHTRAP

 


She’d been “the sick girl” for most of her life. She refused to go straight to “the weird girl”. Heart-transplant recipient Sophie Curtis has been in her own antiseptic bubble for so long, she just might not be able to venture out into the real world again. Her spooky body memories are scary enough, but then she finds herself in the cross hairs of a killer.

“Love was blind, people said. But lust was blind, deaf and reckless.” Ethan Bing hadn’t been a great romantic before he became a cop. Whatever shred of optimism he had left after becoming Broslin Chief of Police had been seared out of him by the unsolved murder of his wife two years before. A new case brings the killer within reach just as Sophie pops into his life. She gets through his defenses like no other before, but soon it becomes clear that she’s been selected as the killer’s next victim.

About The Author!

 
 

Sarah Daltry writes erotica and romance that ranges from sweet to steamy. She moves around a lot and has trouble committing to things. Lily of the Valley is her third full length novel, although she also has several story collections and two novellas available. Her other novels are Forget Me Not, the story that tells Lily’s version of events, and Bitter Fruits, which was available shortly, but is now in the contract phase with a major publisher. When Sarah isn’t writing, she tends to waste a lot of time checking Facebook for pictures of cats, shooting virtual zombies, and simply staring out the window.

Excerpt:

 

“I have a present for you,” she says.

“I told you. I want nothing but you.”

“I know, but I’m excited. First, though…”

“Yeah.”

This is terrifying. If I screw this up, it could ruin everything. We haven’t been together that long and although I am trying to trust in us, I wonder if Lily could stay with me if her parents hate me. What if they hate me?

She kisses me quickly on the lips and then on the tip of my nose. I somehow feel both ten and hungry for her. She’s still so amazing to me.

“They are going to love you,” she says.

“Then why are you so nervous?”

“What if you hate them?”

I hug her and breathe in her hair. “I could never hate anything that you are. We might come from totally different worlds, princess, but every part of you is beautiful.”
