Blog Tour And Book Review Of “She Regrets Nothing” By Andrea Dunlop @Andrea_Dunlop @atriabooks
In the tradition of The Emperor’s Children and The House of Mirth,the forgotten granddaughter of one of New York’s wealthiest men is reunited with her family just as she comes of age—and once she’s had a glimpse of their glittering world, she refuses to let it go without a fight.
When Laila Lawrence becomes an orphan at twenty-three, the sudden loss unexpectedly introduces her to three glamorous cousins from New York who show up unannounced at her mother’s funeral. The three siblings are scions of the wealthy family from which Laila’s father had been estranged long before his own untimely demise ten years before.
Two years later, Laila has left behind her quiet life in Grosse Point, Michigan to move to New York City, landing her smack in the middle of her cousins’ decadent world. As the truth about why Laila’s parents became estranged from the family patriarch becomes clear, Laila grows ever more resolved to claim what’s rightfully hers. Caught between longing for the love of her family and her relentless pursuit of the lifestyle she feels she was unfairly denied, Laila finds herself reawakening a long dead family scandal—not to mention setting off several new ones—as she becomes further enmeshed in the lives and love affairs of her cousins. But will Laila ever, truly, belong in their world? Sly and sexy, She Regrets Nothing is a sharply observed and utterly seductive tale about family, fortune, and fate—and the dark side of wealth (From Goodreads)
Thank you to Atria Books for including me in the Blog Tour and for sending me an E-ARC in exchange of an honest review and participation in the Blog Tour.
I rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 Stars.
I loved this book. Every single page. And I hated absolutely EVERYTHING about Laila. She is the worst female character that I have ever read about. Selfish, money hungry, back stabbing, B- Word. That’s what she is. I wanted the worst possible things to happen to her.
My favorite character in this entire book was Liberty. She was down to earth, likable, and an overall sweetheart, someone who I would want to be friends with in real life. She was the light in this book.
There were a few other characters that I absolutely hated, that were so vile, but I cannot discuss them in this review, as I do not want to spoil anything for you guys. While reading this, I spent a lot of time saying “What a bitch” and I spent a lot of time pissed off, and I spent an equal amount of time with a broken heart. There are a few instances in this book that are devastating and really made me feel like I had been punched in the gut, just blindsided me, for those who have read the book, you are going to know the exact two parts I am speaking of, for those who haven’t read this book, do yourself a favor and read it. I promise you, you won’t regret it.
I loved Andrea Dunlap’s writing style, I loved the switching back and forth between characters, I loved that each and every one of them had depth to them. There were quite a few chapters left with some major cliff hangers, and in doing so, the author made this a “One More Chapter” book, I did not want to put it down!
