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

Chase 

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. 

Jordan 

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.

Excerpt
Tears streak down my face while I wonder what I should say. I don’t want to think of Chase suffering but I’m not sure I’m strong enough to handle this. Because, hell …I’m being asked to save the man responsible for destroying me. And if I’m not careful, history is liable to repeat itself. Only this time, I know in advance that I’m about to sacrifice more than my heart can handle.

Instead of answering Donna, I turn to Dr. Wallace. “What exactly do you want from me?” I quickly brush away my tears, hoping no one else witnessed them.

“Only what you’re willing to give, Jordan. I’m not up to date on the history you share with Chase, but it’s evident that being here is hard on you.” His voice is filled with compassion.

I was hoping he’d act like an ass like Steve so I’d feel justified in my choice to leave. Instead, he acts concerned about me.

Can I really agree to do this? Can I put my life on hold to help Chase? But the bigger question is: Can I go back to New York with this on my conscience? Go back to living my life wondering and worrying about him even if he isn’t my burden to carry? And that’s the problem …I don’t think I can. Like it or not, I’m involved and from what Dr. Wallace has said, my involvement plays a large role in his recovery.

I square my shoulders and clear my throat. “One week. I’ll stay and help Chase work out his memory, but I have a life back in New York and I’m not willing to put my life on hold indefinitely. One week, that’s all I’m willing to give.”

Donna sags with relief as Dr. Wallace speaks up. “Chase might not be able to appreciate what you’re doing for him at the moment, Ms. Taylor, but when he does, I know he’ll be very grateful.”

God, I hope he’s right. I can’t help wondering how grateful he’s going to be when I get on an airplane next week and disappear from his life.

Living With Regret
Riann C. Miller

Jordan met the love of her life at 16. She realized that 2 years with him would never be enough.  Preparing to take the next step, her hopes and heart is decimated by the one man who held it.

Ten years later, she get a phone call. One she should never have accepted, that opens the flood gates to a time and person she never thinks about.  Chase Adams is in her past. She can't let those ghosts continue to haunt her, but...
Chase can't remember the last ten years the way they happened.  He remembers his lovely wife and is in a panic when he has been in the hospital for days and she never shows.  He just needs her. He craves her.  She will make everything better.
Its been ten years since Jordan has been in the same place as Chase.  It's been ten years since he threw her away.  Its been ten years since they spoke. Yet he seems to think they are married and his doctor wants Jordan to play along.  Everyone is thinking whats best for Chase but no one is thinking about Jordan.
Living With Regret is a second chance romance in a way that is very unique.  I can say that the introduction (a mere 3 or 4 pages in) I was already crying.  I hope and despair that Mr. Miller paints with her words is extremely clear.  Each word yanks the emotions out of you, whether you want to cry or not, i suspect you will. Tissues are highly recommended.
This book has:
intense and incredible feels
an arrogant football player
a feisty, loud and 100% gangster like lawyer best friend
a laid back fun loving couch buddy with more wisdom that one would suspect
crappy parents
loving parents
and whole bunch more
I strongly recommend you pull out a blanket and some chocolate for the roller coaster ride that Living With Regrets is sure to take you on.
