Written with Regret

Every little girl dreams of the fairytale. The one where the white knight rushes in to save her from the clutches of evil. They fall in love, have babies, and live happily ever after. By that definition, my life should have been a fairytale too. When I was eight years old, Caven Hunt saved me from the worst kind of evil to walk the Earth. It didn’t matter that I was a ki...

    Thankfully this author seems to love her readers, because she is not making us wait too long, since the

    I also knew going into this one, that I was probably gonna be hit with a

    , the latest by Aly Martinez, is nothing short of absolute literary

    ! This author never ceases to amaze me. Her stories are so unique and thoroughly entertaining. I thought I knew where the plot was headed, and that was a big mistake on my part! I should have known that the author would throw in a twist that would come as such a shock to me by the time I got to the end of this first installment, that I must warn ends with a

    cliffhanger! I don’t think I can wait to get my hands on the next book!

    If you love single daddy romances, you are going to be in for such a treat!! Caven Hunt was the ultimate playboy who was about to close on a billion dollar high tech business deal. Then one night a tiny newborn baby girl that gets left on his doorstep changes his life forever. It turns out the beautiful redhead he had a scorching hot one night stand with has left him with an impossibly huge responsibility that he's not even close to being prepared for.

    The story fast forwards to four years later and Caven has become an adorably devoted father to his cute and precocious little baby girl with curly red hair and expressive green eyes. There is no way readers aren't going to fall madly in love with Caven and little Rosie!

    Caven’s world is turned upside down when his long lost baby mama makes a surprise appearance at Rosie’s fourth birthday party. There isn’t anything he wouldn’t do to keep his girl safe and Hadley will feel his wrath, but all she wants is a chance to get to know her daughter. Caven is rightfully suspicious of Harley's intentions and keeps his guard way up. There's so much anger and animosity inside of him towards Hadley but when she reveals that they share a connection to a haunting past, he starts to see her in a new light. He's torn up inside with guilt, anger, and burning desire, that he inevitably gives in to. Caven and Hadley reignite their passionate affair, but we know that trouble lays ahead for the two lovers.

    Hadley reveals a piece of her past only to us readers during her chapters, and I thought I knew why she was keeping it a secret from Caven, but rest assured, you will be just as blown away as I was at the reveal at the end of book one!

    Here are my overall ratings:

    Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine:

    releases on May 23rd. It is a duet and if you hate cliffhangers, you may want to wait until book two releases on June 13th! I promise you this is a story you need to put at the very top of your TBRs!

    AUTHOR BIO:

    Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.

    Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

    She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.

    Is the first full length contemporary romance novel in Aly Martinez' 'Regret Duet.' In this we meet the hero (Caven) his daughter (Rosealee) and the heroine (Hadley)

    An unputdownable riveting page-turner that kept me racing through the pages. This author is unstoppable!!

    Jumping into this and hitting that ‘prologue’ I never expected it to take us down the road it did, that shock factor came into full play as only this author can do, a dark twist that I never saw coming, at all. My heart broke, it went on stand still, it took awhile for it to go back to its normal rhythm. This sets up the whole storyline perfectly and does flit back to that timeframe regularly.

    Like a roller coaster out of control, the anticipation, the angst, the giggles, the swooning, those feels all came crashing together all at once. This book was so good!! Once I started it I was pulled into the storyline straight away!! I don't want to go into the plot too much because I feel like it's a story that needs to be read without any spoilers. The heroine and hero for different reasons will pull on your heart strings. Neither have had it easy. The heroine does take a wee bit of time to warm up to but believe me by the end you've connected with her character fully and you may not or may agree with how she's handled things but either way you end up having empathy for the decision she came to. Yet again she's not had an easy go of things.

    - Caven

    But Caven (the hero) and his daughter Rosealee stole the show. These two melted my heart in two, seriously adorable. Their banter made this story.

    I inhaled this in record time!! And like the rest before me I can’t wait for the next book because that ending was a whole new game changer.

    A few things are absolutely true. First, Aly Martinez is the undisputed queen of the DUET. The woman can write a duet like no other. Second, I live for her books. Freaking LIVE for them. And third, this book was awesome. I was hooked from beginning to end!

    A few things are absolutely true. First, Aly Martinez is the undisputed queen of the DUET. The woman can write a duet like no other. Second, I live for her books. Freaking LIVE for them. And third, this book was awesome. I was hooked from beginning to end!

    You know you're reading a great book when you just can't stop and all you want to do is read it. Aly's books usually have that reaction on me, especially when is one of her duets. And this was no exception. And when I was done all I could say was Wow! Wow, she's amazing at carefully building up plots. Wow, she's wonderful at giving me all the feels. Wow, how is this going to end. And holy WOW. I. DID. NOT. SEE. THIS. COMING! And that's how I basically rate my books. Based on how I felt when I read them, how the books took me through all the emotions and definitely by how much an author is able to surprise me with plot twist that I didn't see coming.

    You know I can't tell you what this book is about other than what's on the blurb. And the whole trope of mother leaving a child and then trying to reclaim it I've found is one of my weakness. After all,

    is one of my favorite books ever. These two characters were absolutely solid, ridiculously well-developed and multi-dimensional how I like my characters to be. And every part of this story was so carefully developed that the delivery and the timing are just fascinating. Other than that, I think you need to read this one yourself to understand the entire story. I don't think I can do it justice or spoil it. I couldn't if I tried.

    Anyway, now I have a book hangover and I really hope part 2 comes out soon cause I'm dying, dying to know how it ends!!! I'm so happy this was awesome. May has been an amazing reading month so far and I hope I can continue my awesome reads stride!!! <3 So, I absolutely recommend this, especially if you love angst and overly complicated storylines and characters. This is obviously Book 1 of 2, so this ends in a huge cliffhanger, so you could read it now (comes out 5/23 and you can preorder for 99cents now) or wait until mid-June when the duet will be complete. Either way, it's a must read!!!

    PS: I forgot to mention I loved her little nod to Puerto Rico. Aly’s husband is from my hometown after all 😉

    I think that I’ve seriously underestimated this author. Her words have definitely been something that I’ve always looked forward to reading but her storytelling is what captures you. As the seconds tick by, you quickly realize that you’re no longer in your world, but her characters world and let me tell you, you will do ANYTHING to stay there.

    I’m going to be real right now and say that

    I think that I’ve seriously underestimated this author. Her words have definitely been something that I’ve always looked forward to reading but her storytelling is what captures you. As the seconds tick by, you quickly realize that you’re no longer in your world, but her characters world and let me tell you, you will do ANYTHING to stay there.

    I’m going to be real right now and say that I had no intention of finishing this book so quickly. My plan was to read the prologue and maybe even the first chapter so I could get the feel of the story and then later on when my house would be quiet, I would start. Let me tell you something. That did NOT happen!! I ignored everyone and everything and dove heart first into this book because after reading that prologue, how could I not?!! It was heartbreaking, gasp worthy and so powerful. If a prologue can make you feel all of these things, what is the rest of the story going to be like?

    This story was more than I had ever set out for and I loved that. The element of surprise, the mystery, unconditional love, that unforgettable passion is what kept me on my toes with this book and reading at warped speed while trying so hard to savor every moment. I did have an issue with a certain character and their actions did put my blood pressure at a dangerous level but aside from that hiccup, I really enjoyed this one. Caven was the type of hero that you would want to have in real life and there is nothing that man wouldn’t do for his loved ones.

    Now lets talk about cliffhangers because even though I’m not a fan, I’ve learned to accept them for what they are: mindf*ck tortures. But this cliffhanger right here? Have no damn business being in my head! What are we supposed to do with that? I did not and I repeat DID NOT see that coming at all!! You have no idea the amount of f bombs I dropped when I read that final scene because if you did, you would be googling some colorful stuff right now.

    I know for a fact that this duet is not one to be missed and there is really no need for me to tell you to read this book. You need to read this right now!! Definitely one of my favorite reads of 2019 so far!!

    Aly Martinez is one of my favorite authors and I will read anything she writes. Period. And, while this isn't going to be one of my top favorites from her, I definitely enjoyed it a lot.

    This book is told via present/past flashbacks from the POV of both the H and the h. Although...now that I think about it, I think the majority (if not all) of the past flashbacks are from the heroine's POV...

    But anywho.

    But anywho.

    Anyone who has followed me for a while knows that flashbacks are on my "things I hate" list, although I will still muddle through them if required. Albeit grudgingly. Cause, you know, sometimes you just have to persevere when you want to sally forth to new and exciting worlds.

    Luckily, however, Martinez is one of the few authors who can do flashbacks throughout a book in a way that I can usually tolerate. I really like her writing. Her characters are always solid and she is a show-er and not a teller. And she brought all that goodness to this book, as usual.

    So, why not 5 stars?

    Well, I rate like to like. Meaning, I rate books according to what type of book genre/sub-genre it is and by other books I might have read from the author before. And I compare them. And 5-star books for me from this author have been

    and

    And, while I enjoyed

    a lot, I didn't love it as much as those 5-star reads. Thus, it would feel wrong to rate this one any higher.

    But I digress.

    I'm trying not to say too much else about the story here as I don't want to spoil anything for anyone. So do yourself a favor and don't read too many reviews.

    Other than that, as I said, I really enjoyed this book - I read it in one sitting - and I can't wait for book two.

    Told in dual POV, 1st person, it’s the first installment in the "Regret Duet" and ends with a huge cliffhanger, one of those that makes your jaw drops while you’re pulling out your hair to know more! I really didn’t see that coming, I mean I didn’t even guess that! It was well-written, reading this made me feel everything; It was an angsty read, I had some fun and smiled a bit, felt a bit heartbroken, and there were some lovely moments… The story captured my interest from the prologue.

The characters were well-developed and I loved all of them, both main and secondary ones. I adored that four-year-old Rosalee, she was freaking cute! Well, I suggest you go in blind, don’t even read the blurb, it’s much better that way! All in all, another great read by my fave author and hope you enjoy it as well!

    I’m so glad I waited till the second book was released. I’m not sure how I would’ve survived after that cliffhanger. That massive plot twist was absolutely brilliant!

    I’m not gonna talk about the plot, but let me tell you that this was such an emotional, angsty, and heartbreaking book. That book hooked me from the prologue and I wasn’t able to stop. I loved Caven so much. He was a freakin hero. I loved how perfect and protective he was towards his daughter. His love is so unconditional.

    I couldn’t connect with the heroine in the beginning, something felt off about her. I couldn’t understand her reasons or why would she do that, her decisions didn’t match her character sometimes, but oh how I was wrong!! Everything started to make sense and she really grew on me and I felt like I really wanna hug her.

    I can’t believe that this is my first Aly Martinez book. Her writing is so good. Her storytelling ability is so amazing. This book was so captivating. It has everything! Adorable cute moments. Hilarious moments. Heartbreaking, gut wrenching moments. It’s just so perfect! It’s a highly recommended book that will give you all the feels!!!
