Regret (Twisted Hearts Duet, Book #2) by Max Henry

Four simple rules when you’re a woman in denial:

1. Don’t stalk your father’s best friend online.
2. Don’t talk to him via Messenger.
3. Definitely don’t go to his house.
4. And whatever you do, don’t tell him you’re still in love.

I’ve never been one for doing what I’m told.

Regret, book two of Max Henry’s Twisted Hearts contemporary romance duet ~ like book one, it is loaded with emotion, heartache & angst, “language” & lust filled romance-- it will be over all to soon, you will not be able to put this book down.  Three years later, this story really turns a corner into a coming of age romance for youngish & older-ish alike~ "...a lot about life. About how suck arse it can be, and how against the odds, you can come back chin high and show the world who the f*ck you are."  The reality of how different relationships can be when you know how good you had it once upon a time, shine through. "You can't force love, and you also can't make do with second best."  Regret is always close by as Belle & Zeus consider decisions made seemingly a lifetime ago.  
On a mission to make a fresh start, to secure their own independent futures, the attraction between Belle & Zeus continues to be tangible – "Three years overseas, and the effect that man has on me didn't lessen in the slightest. If anything it's grown worse."  So very sexy –  Thriving in adulthood "I found my passion, and just like Zeus wanted me to, I found myself. My work is everything. Without it I'm a lost girl lusting after things she can't have all over again." & overcoming perceptions of who these two characters should be.  Friendships are reclaimed & tested, only to be found again through new allies.  You will be blown away by family secrets, you won't see coming - seriously surprising!  Wisdom in "You can't change what's been." I learnt that early on. "Only move forward."
I love how these characters evolved from book one to book two, that it was natural & genuine.  I couldn’t get enough of Belle & loved the journey she took finding herself.  And of course Zeus with an "...undying need to protect those he loves." 

I loved this duet of “...a love that never died.”
