For Mackenzie Green life is full of regrets; regrets from choices she made in the past, regrets for the things she’ll never see in her future. She regrets letting her grades slip while her sister was in rehab, ensuring she’ll never break away from the rumor-run, small town she lives in. She regrets breaking up with her future All American football playing boyfriend, Brayden Turner out of fear of getting hurt. Most of all she regrets every decision she made leading up to the night that changed her life forever.
It’s only after Brayden cuts her off completely that Mackenzie realizes how much she wants him in her life. She’s learns that losing what you love breaks you, but sometimes it’s the only way to tap into your inner strength.
Can Mackenzie find the courage to learn from her mistakes and move forward or will she spend her days consumed with regrets? Is it too late to convince Brayden she wants him in her life and that she’s in it for the long haul? Most of all, can she accept that sometimes bad things happen no matter how hard you try to protect yourself from them? Can she put it all behind her or will she live an unfulfilled life full of regrets?
Review done by Sarah
Mackenzie's life is full of regret. Her grades have slipped at school after her sister Jessica ODs. This means that she cannot go off to college and has to say in the small town where she lives. She has dumped her football playing boyfriend, Brayden, as she is scared she will get hurt when he leaves for college. Brayden is a great guy ,but how many times will he let Mackenzie push him away before he breaks. He doesn't care about the things that people are saying, he loves her. He has the patience of a saint and is there for Mackenzie when she needs him. Mackenzie needs to realise shit happens in life, you need to carry on! You can't prevent bad things happening and hold back doing things incase they go wrong. I liked the main characters in the book Jessica redeems herself in the end and is a great support to Mackenzie. I was addicted right from the start and I did cry in parts of the book. It is a very sweet love story, which I really enjoyed.
