My rating: 5 of 5 stars
OMG DID I JUST READ THAT???
Regret is one of those books that once you start reading you can't put it down, you need to get to the end and what an ending this was, I can't wait for the next story.
Hunter Keaton is a man on a mission. As a PI he takes his job very seriously and never once struggles to find his mark. The dreadful events of his past have turned him into someone who desperately needs control. He will not submit at nothing or no one and he will only be with women who like to willingly submit to his needs. There are no strings. He won't ever allow himself to feel for feelings make him weak. His latest job is driving him crazy, his mark is an elusive woman who doesn't seem to be wanted to be found and the pressure from his contractor is choking him, so he makes his move with deathly and explosive consequences.
Scarlet Woods is a woman on the run. She has lost so much and has been ripped from her innocence and from everything she once held dear. Trusting someone who she thought loved her made her an easy prey. She has left everything behind in order to escape the horror and the nightmares of what her life has become. Hurt and alone she has to create a new "persona" in order to survive.
When she first meets Hunter she believes is just another person who is trying to get a piece of her so she brushes his attempts as nothing but poor flirting, but boy when their worlds collide, the whole universe shifts.
The way I can describe the relationship between Hunter and Scar is like a rubber band; each pulls and pulls not wanting to get too close or too invested but eventually the pull gives in and they both come together in an explosive manner. Neither wants to surrender to their feelings, both are stubborn in their own right and have so many internal scars its almost like watching a train reck, you are left on the sidelines like an spectator waiting for everything to go crash, BOOM, burn, and boom it goes.
Bella knows just how to propel us into the characters world and submerges the reader into a frenzy of hatred, betrayal, passion, obsession, despair, love and anguish.
I am not patiently waiting, I am PANTING for the next instalment, and desperate for more from these magnificent characters.
