Regretting You by Colleen Hoover is a contemporary romance or domestic fiction novel that revolves around the lives of mother-daughter Morgan and Clara. They have never gotten along too well, but things start to fall off once Clara and Morgan leave two people in their lives, Morgan’s sister Jenny and Morgan’s husband, Chris. Morgan’s grief and betrayal are extreme, but she decides to keep the truth from her daughter, which is that Chris and Jenny are having an affair. It’s even harder to handle when Jonah, Jenny’s fiancé, realizes that his infant son Elijah is not his son but is Chris’s. Jonah and Morgan cope with their grief together and finally grow onto each other, although they had a weird connection growing up as teens. They slowly realize their attraction toward each other, making Clara think that Morgan and Jonah have been having an affair and starts to develop a hatred for them. The ending ties everything up and gives everyone the ending they deserve.
Regretting You is written in a way that makes you connect deeply to Clara and Morgan as it is written from the perspective of both of them. It makes you feel what both of them feel and how they react to the situation at hand.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and loved how the characters were developed. I sometimes wish I could have got the point of view from Jenny or Chris so they could explain the affair or whatever was going on between them.
