Lost To You (The Regret Series 1.0)


People come into our lives. Some stay, and many go. Some build us up, while most tear us down. They become our friends, our enemies, our lovers, our tormentors.

Christian Davison came into mine, and I knew I’d never be the same.

To Elizabeth Ayers, New York City had always been a dream. She’s worked her entire young life to make it here.

Groomed to one day take over his father’s law firm, attending Columbia University was Christian Davison’s only option.

Neither wanted anything more until they sat across from each other at a café table after being paired as study partners.

Christian wants her, but Elizabeth knows better than to give into their intense attraction. Yet there is little she can do to stay away.

Lost to You, the prequel to the bestselling romance, Take This Regret. A New Adult novella, recommended for readers 17+. It’s unnecessary to have read Take This Regret to enjoy Lost to You.

Take This Regret (The Regret Series 2.0)

 There are some mistakes we make that we will regret for the rest of our lives.  For Christian, it was the day he betrayed Elizabeth.

Christian Davison has a plan for his life.  He is determined to become an attorney and to one day take his place as partner in his father’s law firm.  Nothing will stand in his way, not even Elizabeth Ayers and their unborn child.

After Christian cuts her from his life, Elizabeth spends the next five years struggling to provide for her daughter and willing to sacrifice anything to give her child a safe, comfortable life.

For five years, Christian has regretted the day he walked away from his family and will do anything to win them back just as Elizabeth will do anything to protect her daughter from the certain heartache she believes Christian will bring upon them.

When Christian wrestles his way into their lives, Elizabeth is faced with asking herself if it is possible to forgive someone when they've committed the unforgivable and if it is possible to find a love after it has been buried in years of hate.  Or are there some wounds that go so deep they can never heal?

They say everyone deserves a second chance.

But will the power that drew them together be enough to heal the wounds from their past, and will they have the courage to overcome the insecurities and fears that threaten to keep them apart?

Nine Minutes by Beth Flynn

Read on November 17, 2014

So much chatter about this novel, good, bad, confused but everyone has an opinion and a book that spurs that much emotion and conflict is one I just *had* to read. Then I heard the female protagonist was 15 years old and I kinda stepped back, I don't have a load of hard limits but pedophilia is some place I do not go ever! Some of my Goodread friends explained it was *like that* I wasn't sure what "like that" means but hell I decided I would bravely give it a go. I am so glad I did it was an amazing book.

Beth Flynn is a brand new author and I can't believe this is her novel, the crafting of the story, the decisions on how to portray sex and friendships. She spins the kidnapping and the relationship in a way that you don't dwell on her age as much as on her feelings and his treatment. The characters both primary and secondary all have a role in the greater story and it was really important that attention is paid to every character who turns up in the story line.

I personally would not call this novel a romance I would call it an emotional story with romantic elements and a lot of suspense with a dash of mystery. I started reading it with the plan to stop when a novel I had been anxiously waiting for released, that idea was scrapped when I started the novel and didn't put it down until I was done the story. 4am....I read without a break....and was blown away. The end quarter provided so many twists and turns it just does your head in....I have seen it referred to as a mind f*ck and it truly was that. There is a kinda resolution but also a cliffhanger. I personally hate cliffys however this was acceptable but I still can't wait until book 2 is released, I will be jumping on it immediately.

So is this novel for the faint at heart? No, there are some very graphic scenes of violence but not as graphic as Madeline Sheehan or Susan Fanetti that being said ..The age of Kit/Gin adds that dash of the forbidden and could be a trigger. Is there unage sex yes but Ms. Flynn fades out the sex is not described...

Overall this is not a comfortable book to read, it is not light but very dark in some places. If you are looking for a feel good read this is not a book for you however, if you are looking for a dark, emotional well written novel with outstanding characters and makes you think and has you thinking about it days later then you definitely *MUST* read this book. One of the best reads of 2014 5 star rating with a HIGH HIGH t'irla recommendation.
