Review: Living with Regret by Riann C.Miller

Sometimes the simplest choice has the power to change your life.


Ten years ago, I turned a hard decision into a simple one. I allowed others to decide my future . . . then I lost the best thing that ever happened to me. I let go of the girl I loved in exchange for a life I was told I wanted. 

Then one day I woke up with no recollection of my reality and instead I believed my life had turned out how I had once dared to imagine. Now everyone is waiting for me to remember the day I ruined my future as I struggle to recall a life without the person I so carelessly tossed away. 

Somehow, I was gifted a second chance with the woman I love, and I’m going to fight like hell to keep her.


Your brain has a funny way of convincing you what is real and what is not; even if your heart never lets you forget the truth. After Chase Adams broke my heart, my life moved forward, even though the light I once felt had extinguished. Then I received an unexpected phone call that changed everything. 

Every day we make choices, but most of the time they don’t affect the rest of our lives. I wanted to love again. I wanted to trust the gift I was given, but every choice has consequences. Now I have to decide to let go of the past for the sake of my future. . . or risk living with regret.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This was my first novel from this author and I really liked it. While the blurb intrigued me, I really had no expectations but glad I got to read it.

You could say this is a second chances story as Jordan and Chase meet in high school, dream of a future together and then Chase makes a decision that rips them apart. Until ten years later, an accident brings them together in a rather unconventional way, which is very emotional and pure torture for Jordan. But despite it all, she stays the course and is fully there for Chase.

But it's not only about second chances and forgiveness but also about love that endures the hard and messy stuff that life throws at you. The external influences that chip away at an individual and can be a strain on relationships. There was one particular jerk that had me wanting to wring his neck in frustration for all his meddling and nasty ways.

Both Jordan and Chase have scars from their first break up and the years apart, this story is their journey of healing and finding their way back together.

I also liked the secondary characters and hope the author has plans for a story about their best friends. I look forward to more from this author.
