For Mackenzie Green life is full of regrets; regrets from choices she made in the past, regrets for the things she’ll never see in her future. She regrets letting her grades slip while her sister was in rehab, ensuring she’ll never break away from the rumor-run, small town she lives in. She regrets breaking up with her future All American football playing boyfriend, Brayden Turner out of fear of getting hurt. Most of all she regrets every decision she made leading up to the night that changed her life forever.
It’s only after Brayden cuts her off completely that Mackenzie realizes how much she wants him in her life. She’s learns that losing what you love breaks you, but sometimes it’s the only way to tap into your inner strength.
Can Mackenzie find the courage to learn from her mistakes and move forward or will she spend her days consumed with regrets? Is it too late to convince Brayden she wants him in her life and that she’s in it for the long haul? Most of all, can she accept that sometimes bad things happen no matter how hard you try to protect yourself from them? Can she put it all behind her or will she live an unfulfilled life full of regrets?

This story is an emotional journey inside the life of Mackenzie Green. Kenzie is struggling with some of the decisions she's made in her life and desperately seeking a small ray of hope in her life. I became so attached to Kenzie and I wanted her dreams to come true as much as she did!! I laughed when she was happy and cried when Kenzie felt sad. This story had me captivated from the moment I started until the very last page!! I was so invested in Regret Me Not, I was actually sad to see the characters go!! (Hey no judging!!!)
Brayden *sigh* was the bright spot and strength in Kenzie's life!! He was always there no matter what she needed and never judged her feelings or actions. I really enjoyed watching the two of them grow closer and Kenzie begin see happiness through her darkness. Brayden helped Kenzie grow and come out of her shell and it was such a triumph for not only her but the reader as well!!! *sniff*
Regret Me Not isn't just a romantic empowering story, it will remind the reader of the importance of friendship and self worth. This story is NOT to be missed!!! I'll carry these characters and their story for a long time to come and come back to visit them often!
