    1. 4 stars!This book THIS BOOK pulled such strong emotions out of me. It broke my heart, I fell in love with the hero (who I didn’t think I would like in the first chapter) and I’m not sure I’ve ever been so frustrated with a heroine in my life The first half of this book was a solid 5 star read for me, and it has so much potential to stay that way. I was in love with this book. Unfortunately the actions of a certain character made it difficult for me to stay in love with it. Rewind five year [...]

    3. 1 1/2 to 2 starsIt's a shame that the last book I'm reviewing for 2011 is a book I would not recommend.  This story is melodrama and redundancy at its best! To say I did not enjoy this book would be an understatement. The hero begins as a selfish, irresponsible coward who redeems himself and becomes an admirable and somewhat endearing character. The heroine, however, does the complete opposite. She starts out as a sympathetic, endearing, and admirable character who evolves into a heroine that [...]

    5. I want to start off by saying that this review is completely biased is solely based on my personal experience and therefore my emotional status, I mean absolutely no disrespect towards the author or anyone who enjoyed this bookI debated with myself over whether I would write this review or not, but I have to because this story hit me hard got personal. This is not was good reviewers do. Good reviewers take the entire book into consideration. Good reviewers analyze the writing, the plot, the char [...]

    9. I am truly not one of those people who gets a kick out of not liking what everyone else likes. If it's something I enjoy, I don't care how popular it is. I'll jump on the bandwagon and wave my flag like the village idiot. Heck, I love the most crazy, wth-just-happened Harlequins I can find. Literary snob, I am not.That being said. I hated this. And, oh the reasons why1) It was ALL about the kid. Not what I call a romance. Don't get me wrong, the kid was cute. The kid was the most likeable charac [...]

    10. 10/1/2012 ONLY $1.99 RIGHT NOW! Go get it while you can! amazon/Take-This-RegreThis review was posted at My Secret RomanceAbsolutely amazing! LOVE LOVE LOVE! This is one of those books that will stick with me forever. I loved every minute of it. There have been a number of break out authors this year, and Amy is one of them. In my opinion, I feel that Amy Lichtenhan is the female version of Nicholas Sparks. Whenever I pick up a book by Sparks, I am immediately sucked into his world as if I'm rea [...]

    11. O Gosh! I am having a mental breakdown so much anger and emotions were sucked out of me and for me to really be a satisfying read there need to be a balance of good and bad and in this case the bad was heavier than the good part!THIS IS NOT A ROMANCE BUT A TRAGIC STORY OF A MAN WHO ABANDONED HIS OWN CHILD FOR HIS OWN SELFISH REASONS! This story is of a child not to be wanted and a man who did not want to face his own mistakes, who did nothing and could have done nothing still, just because he wa [...]

    12. God dammit this book tore my heart outoke me to pieces and yet I still loved every minute of ut. I seem to be reading the best books latelye ones that leave me numb and in tears of sadness, joy, and despair. This book was amazing but it opened old wounds so deep I felt like I was reliving a part of my past I try to forget. I can't think straight to for coherent thoughts long enough for a review right now.~Full review coming soon~Okay, since I read this book a couple of days ago it's time to post [...]

    13. They say cowards run in the face of danger or pain. I supposed that’s what I was, what I’d become, too fearful to love, too fearful to be loved, too afraid to live— so I ran.This is one of those books that I can see people having a lot of mixed feelings about. The reason I think that is because I had a lot of mixed feelings. It’s been weeks and I’m still not exactly sure. There were moments that made me so angry with the characters that I wanted to stop reading. Then there were moments [...]

    14. 4.5 tear-inducing stars!!Have you ever done something that you regretted that you wish you could do over? This book is about that. It's about doing something totally hurtful to another person, regretting it and getting a second chance to atone for it. I loved this story. It's full of flawed but believable characters that really, really got to me. This is the story of Christian and Elizabeth. Two very flawed characters that at one point or another disappointed me with their actions. There were pa [...]

    15. 5+Stars!!!!!What did I think? WowWhat a really emotionally satisfying story about love, commitment, priorities and forgiveness. As human beings we make mistakes the time we might not think it will ruin our lives. How do we fix it? How do we rectify errors in how we have lived our life? How do we begin to ask forgiveness for turning away from the most precious part of our life? The people we love?In Take This Regret a man does just that. He chooses a career path and the expectation of a family wh [...]

    16. Wow. I'm left wondering what to say. Such an amazing beautiful story of love, regret and forgiveness.The love and bond between Christian and Lizzie was so beautiful and heart warming that it touched my soul. The trust and love that Lizzie so freely offers her father is beautiful and such a gift that Christian truly and desperately needed. Christian finally learns the true meaning of love in it's purest form, thanks to his daughter, and what love can be like with/for his family. Never have I read [...]

    17. What an absolute masterpiece. This book is beyond 5 stars. If I could rate it 10 stars I am certain I would. This book captured me from page one and held me to the bitter end. This is a book I sat down and read in one sitting. It was that good and I couldn't step away from it. If you are looking for an emotional book look no further and give this one a try.

    18. Wow Wow Wow, I wish I could give a 6th star to this book. Absolutely heartbreaking. It was wonderful. A.L. Jackson has a gift for writing. I’ll gush about the story in a second. First, I need to praise the writing. I loved it. The writing style in Take this Regret is smooth and concise. I loved how the prologue was written from the third person point of view but switched to alternating first person afterward. I love when stories are written like this because I get so much more drawn into the c [...]

    19. Gosh it took forevvvvvvver for these two to get back together, and when they finally did I was left with wanting more.My Christian Davison:My Elizabeth Ayers:and the beautiful Lizzie:Because I sort of read the books out of order, I had a hard time believing that the Christian I learned to love in book 0.5 would abandon Elizabeth after a four year relationship. I found myself hating him for most of the book. The trials and tribulations that Elizabeth endured alone were heartbreaking. I was happy [...]

    20. Books in series should be read in order:Part 0.5: Lost To YouBook 1: Take This RegretBook 2: If Forever Comes

    21. I read Pulled last week and knew I had to order Take this regret. Once again, this author knows how to tap into human emotion beyond any other writer I've read before. Such a beautiful story of regret, love, and forgiveness. Read it in six hours. This book pulled at my heart and flared every emotion inside of me. Thank you once again for a beautifully written book.

    22. Another one about young love reunited - Good enough read - not sure if I would have taken him back but if true love prevails anything can be overcome.

    23. If you have not read this book, you need to ASAPWhat an incredible emotional journey. I recommended to all my friends. You Ms Lichtenhan are a genius!I don’t normally read books that don’t have at least a little steamy sex in them, yes shallow I know, but it is my choice. This book has almost no sex until the very end and you know what I didn’t even notice. So maybe I am not as shallow as I think! LOLI found myself crying several times while reading; in fact my hubby thought there was some [...]

    24. “How could you? Did you think of me? Did you think of our child? Why didn’t you love me enough? Did you even love me at all? Why now, after so many years?”I don’t know what it is about this story that affected me so deeply but I was one hot mess by the end of it. I did not allow myself to eat, drink or sleep until I finished it and regained some sort of control over my emotions. This is the story of one man’s attempt to correct a terrible mistake that he made in his past. And this is t [...]

    25. I'm a mess at the moment after reading this book, which is not at all what I was expecting to be the case. I started this today because I thought it looked like a sweet romance, but it was so very much more than that. This book moved me and tore at my emotions like no other, and it is an absolutely unforgettable story. Take this Regret is a story that truly tests the boundaries of forgiveness and love. Elizabeth and Christian were in love and happy, planning a future together at law school while [...]

    26. Absolutely amazing! LOVE LOVE LOVE!There have been a number of break out authors this year, and Amy is one of them. In my opinion, I feel that Amy Lichtenhan is the female version of Nicholas Sparks. Whenever I pick up a book by Sparks, I am immediately sucked into his world as if I'm really there living it; it's very realistic. And that's how I feel about Amy's book. I was instantly hooked from the beginning. I started this book at 10pm last night and didn't stop reading until I finished the en [...]

    27. He knew it all, about it, about herAND YETHe turned his back on her, on them.And then he has the nerve to come back.He is a Bastard.And here your Honor is where I'd like to rest my case. I loved this book, but at the same time I hated it, maybe more than I loved it.Hated Lizzy the most then Christian.I felt for Elizabeth!! Poor thing.

    28. I don't have words to describe this work so I won't even try. I will just say it is emotional as hell, you see the regrets and the struggle of Elizabeth and Christian, you want to cry, rant, root for them and even kick them.I wanted to hate Christian but I couldn't because we saw him suffer, we saw Elizabeth's fears, her doubts and suffering. I just couldn't keep this book down.

    29. Don’t “regret” not having read this book! It’s a solid and well-written story filled with love, regrets, growth, and a second chance at redemption. This may be my first by new-to-me-author Jackson BUT it won’t be my last. I’ll be downloading “Pulled” very soon.I’m not a youngin’ and it has amazed me that I have become so involved in searching out these YA books. I especially enjoy the ones involving college-age couples and their journey to maturity and eventual happily ever a [...]
