Book Tour, Review & Giveaway: Take This Regret

Title: Take This Regret

Goodreads Synpopsis:

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.


To be honest I have no idea why I joined this book tour. I mean sometimes I have impulsive choices, and I am pretty sure I hadn't read the synopsis in advance - which if you know me isn't actually a bad thing most of the time. I just did. And I am glad.

This book was so emotional and even though I might not always appreciate those kinds of books, in this case I did. I really loved how the author took us down the timeline of how things happened and we got to see everything from both Christian and Elizabeth's point of views. I am a big fan of getting inside the character's head!

Christian, being very ambitious, hurts Elizabeth years in advance by making her choose between him and their unborn child, and then things just end between them when she chooses the child. Elizabeth gives up her dreams to care for her child as Christian continues to rise up the ladder trying to please his father.

The pregnancy sort of ruins things between them, but also makes them see themselves in new lights, they're both filled with regrets and insecurities that the break-up only seemed to enhance. They take refuge in those around them and hope for the best. But when, years later, Christian runs into a child in the market that seems to have captured his attention, he decides it's about time he stops running and face the child that seems to have captivated him - his own.

It was a really quick and easy read, I quite enjoyed it!

Rating: 4/5
