Book Review: Regrets Only by M.J. Pullen

Book Description: At thirty-three, Suzanne Hamilton has no regrets. A successful event planner with a swanky condo in a hot Atlanta neighborhood, she’s got a close group of friends and a list of men a mile long who would happily bend over backwards to win her heart. Plus, she’s just landed the event that will take her career to the next level. Then a freak accident changes everything. Humiliated, with her career in tatters, Suzanne’s lost her business not to mention her self-respect. She’s managed, however, to retain the surprising support of her newest celebrity client: the sexy country music star, Dylan Burke. Against her better judgment, but without any better offers, Suzanne agrees to plan a wedding for one of the Burke sisters. But when she comes to realize her freak accident was anything but, her catalog of past relationships turns into a list of suspects and Suzanne must question everything―her career, her friendships, and most acutely, her own dating rules. As it turns out, she might have quite a bit to regret after all.

My Thoughts: I LOVED this book so much!! I couldn't put it down! It's charming, funny, and intriguing. Suzanne is a great heroine because she's strong and driven. She's a bit over-confident at times, but not enough to make her unlikable.  I really appreciated the twists and turns in the story that I didn't predict. They definitely kept me turning the pages! Pullen's writing style is SO captivating! The story has an element of mystery as well, which I really enjoyed. I was so surprised by who was responsible for Suzanne's accident. Dylan is described as a "sexy country music star," and he definitely is! His charm and sex appeal jump off the pages, so he's very compelling as the hero of the story. I loved the will-they won't-they between Dylan and Suzanne. This novel is the second book in The Marriage Pact trilogy. Each novel is about a different member of a group of friends. I haven't read the first book in the series, but that didn't matter when I was reading Regrets Only. Each book stands on its own. I highly recommend Regrets Only!

Rating: 5 stars
