We’re celebrating the release of Living With Regret by Lisa De Jong! Check out the excerpt below!
I had my whole life mapped out. Perfect guy. Perfect friends. Everything was exactly the way I wanted it.
That was until that night–the one I can’t remember. It’s all my fault, and now the memories are all I have left of him. Of us.
My guilt drowns me until Sam Shea steps back into my life and helps me to the surface. He slowly opens my heart and crawls deep inside before I even realize what’s happening. I know I don’t deserve him. While I’m trying to get used to my new life, pieces of that night slowly start to come back to me. Lies and secrets shatter everything I thought I knew.
Maybe I’m not the only one living with regret.
Living With Regret tells the story of a girl who’ve had it all, all her life. A loving family, a nice house, a lot of friends and the hottest boyfriend in town. At least that’s what everyone thinks, but we all know looks can be deceiving. In reality, her parents are always so preoccupied about appearances, what people might think of them; her friends act like friends only for the good stuff, the parties, etc.; and her boyfriend… well, it’s been a while since they’ve been okay. Nothing’s really what it appears on the outside. You must take a closer look to really see someone, to really know what she or he is going through. To know what makes them happy, sad, angry, excited… Kate had that. And no, it was not Cory.
