“Sometimes in the waves of change, we find our true direction.” (loved this quote)
I love the characters of this story they are real down to earth, relatable, have huge hearts and have real issues that are dealt with in a very real manner.
Ryder, Cami and Tristan were inseparable, lived to surf and loved to surf. They were the best of friends. Tristan and Cami had an amazing connection that was more than just friendship but before they could announce it to the world, a tragedy happened that

Sheepers creepers I could just drown in this man's eyes ! They're soulful and capture Tristan spot on !

Now for the difficult part ..... I'm not sure my review will do Cami and Tristan justice .

Tristan not only lost his soul mate but his unborn child ! The first few pages had me sobbing and Kleenex mountain piling up! My heart just shatters for this man and the heartache he's going through and has gone through.

Honestly I did truly enjoy this book , I was swept away by the emotions of Tristen and the way he made me feel , I was tormented by him , his pain was so real and raw I couldn't help but curl up in my recliner and cry while I read about his life with Cami and his life now without her and their unborn child. WOW it was heartbreaking. I fell in love with Tristen during his brief part in SInfully because of his emotion. I could not wait to get his story though I knew it would be heartbreaking I ...more

Wow, I only reserve one stars for books I couldn't finish. I DID finish this because there was a plot and I was wondering where this was going, but I was honestly, VERY worked up by the time I finished this novel, and not in a good way.

Admittedly, I didn't read book one. However, this is supposedly a stand alone, so I figured it wouldn't be bad not to. That isn't my problem. My problem is I found the synopsis and what ends up going on in the novel itself are COMPLETELY misleading.

I have a totally different take on this since I read it before reading Sinfully (book #1...which I suggest your read first even though this could technically be a standalone) and I will re-review after I've read the first.
The beginning was rough for me, possibly because I haven't read Sinfully, but it kept revisiting the same thing over and over. A little too repetitive for me. Once I got through that, it was great. Sweet, a little angsty, and sexy. Highs and lows. I ended up loving

I received an early Beta copy of this and WOW!! I suppose you can read this as a stand alone, but I strongly suggest reading Sinfully first only because Sinfully is so good and you will relate even more with these characters. I'm definitely buying this paperback once it's available

For me to get emotional and cry in a book, that instantly puts the rating at a five. The author had me broken hearted, shocked and dancing with joy at different times in this book. She tugged at my heart strings and played with my emotions and I have to admit I loved every moment of it.
I understand there is a book prior to this one and was told Regretfully could be read as a standalone and they were correct. I wasn’t lost or felt like I was missing information at all. I will say after

Original Blog Post: Happy Happy Release Day Blitz!!! + eARC Review: Regretfully (Sinfully #2) by Leighton Riley

After enjoying Sinfully, I knew what my reaction would be after reading Leighton Riley's next installment, Regretfully. Thank goodness I wasn't wrong!
Regretfully happens almost at the same time as Sinfully, so they can be read separately although you'll enjoy this volume more if you already have the backstory of the first.
Tristen was someone I really felt sorry for; he lost everyone he

Stop what you're doing. Go one click Regretfully right now. It's a damn good book and definitely worth your time.
I'm kind of a harsh reader. I'm extremely picky and have a hard time finishing a book if I don't like it. With regretfully by Leighton Riley I was sucked in instantly. There was no need to force myself to read it. There wasn't a 'ugh when is this going to be over' moment. The entire book was compelling and kept me

I loved this book! Ok so wow! What an emotional roller coaster with a side of sexy! After reading book one in this series, I was excited for Tristen's story and let me tell you.... it did not disappoint. This book will pull at your heartstrings and has a way of making you fell the emotions as it pours off of the page. You will smile. You will CRY (have tissues handy)! You will get angry. You will laugh. You will feel this book in your heart. And this book also has a few curveballs that

Having read Sinfully, (which I recommend reading first) I was anxious about Tristen’s story. As I read, I could feel the anguish he was going through and felt. He lost the woman that he loves and on top of that the loss of his unborn child. His world has been turned on its axis. But when a friend of Cami’s is introduced to his life, he begins to come out of his darkness. Aria is a sweet funny girl and both she and Tristen feel this pull for one another. But it’s for different reasons. I felt ...more

“Sometimes in the waves of change, we find our true direction”.

I have been looking forward to reading Tristen's story since I read Sinfully and it didn't disappoint.

Regretfully partially overlaps the timeline of Sinfully and continues beyond it. As the story opens, Tristen is still struggling to handle his grief alone; Ryder is not yet aware that he and Cami were in a relationship or that Cami was pregnant when she died. Her friend Aria finds Tristen sitting on the beach after Cami's memorial

Tristen can't seem to catch a break. The love of his life has been lost at sea and presumed dead, along with their unborn child. And, because Tristen and Cami have chosen to keep their love a secret -- especially from Cami's brother and Tristen's best friend -- Tristen can't share his grief. At least so he believes. Tristen ends up confiding in Cami's friend Aria and a relationship begins brewing. But then complications arise (don't they always?) and Tristen's world is shaken to its core... ...more

I absolutely love tristan. His story is remarkable, and how the prologue started, broke my heart. He is such a good man, and how he feels pulls at your heart. The loss of his love and how drastically taken from him was so gripping, you can't pull yourself away. It is such a heartbreaking story and told with such depth that I wanted to just hold tristan and tell hi it would be ok. Aria was such a good friend, but that something more was there

4.5 stars.This is an amazing story full of angst and anguish. It was so easy to identify and connect with the characters. The story is believable and real for the most part. Poor Tristen lost everything in one day. He lost the love of his life, who just happened to be pregnant with his child, his love of surfing and thus his job, and his best friend that just happened to be Cami's(his loves) brother. Since they had never came out in the open about their relationship he didn't have anyone to talk ...more

I will be honest. I kept getting confused in this book. I should have gone back and reread Sinfully but this was still a good book. This is a hard review to write and not give anything away, but I know I would have to read a spoiler about this book!

This is the story of Tristen. He looses Cami, Ryder's twin sister, and is all alone. We get to learn about his struggles and heartbreak. He has a tough time trying to move on after loosing Cami.

Aria was Cami's friend. A friend that Tristen had not

Tristen, Aria, Cami

I was really looking forward to this book. Tristen lost the love of his life, actually he lost 2 loves of his life, Cami and the ocean. Cami her twin brother Ryder, and Tristen were all surfers. Until one fatal day. Now Tristen fights everyday to survive. Aria becomes the one person to whom he can open up to about his and Cami's relationship. While Aria is in a relationship she stills comes to have feelings for Tristen. I really thought this book would go a different way than

4.5 STARS!

Left alone after the death of his best friend, lover and mother of his unborn child, this is a deeply emotional book dealing with Tristen’s attempts to get his life back on track after his enormous loss.

Fighting triggers daily about his past with Cami, Tristen struggles to find someone who understands until he meets Aria, one of Cami’s old friends that he had never met before her funeral. Aria understands Tristen’s loss but mainly because she has gone through hell in her past as well.

I received a copy of Regretfully from the author for an honest review...
Regretfully is the second book in the Sinfully series, but it also written to stand a lone. It can but it also enhances the story more if the first book, Sinfully, is read.
After losing his girlfriend in a tragic accident that also cost him his unborn child, Tristen feels that his life has no meaning. He used to love to hit the beach of San Diego and surf, but as Cami was lost to him in the ocean, he no longer can find solace

Sometimes it is hard to move along especially when it is sudden.

Tristen thought he had everything a woman he loved and was planning to marry and she was carrying his child. They kept their relationship quiet from their parents and her twin brother Ryan a secret. So it remained a secret that Cami was pregnant and that he could not tell anyone which further his depression.

At her funeral, he meets Aria an old friend of Cami who looks somewhat like her. They begin a

Regretfully took a completely different turn than what I thought it was going to be and for me it wasn't a completely positive one. I cannot go into full details because I don't want to ruin the book for anyone.

I actually enjoyed the book until I got to the end and it kind of ruined it for me. There was a certain character that was just dropped from the second half of the book only to return at the end completely ruined.

We know that Tristan lost the love of his life and has struggled to move

It was heartbreaking and lifted you up all at once! TOTALLY taken of guard with the events the story which I will leave out due to spoilers!!!
I am say that Tristen and Aria are phenomenal characters and there is so much depth to their personalities I enjoyed getting to know them and look forward to future works from Leighton.
It was also great as to catch up Payton and Ryder and to see how their relationship has developed.

I enjoyed this story. I felt so bad for Tristen for everything he went through. And after months and months he still wasn't handling the loss of Cami at all. How do you cope when you lose your very reason for breathing? Aria, who was one of Cami's friends, tries to help Tristen. It helps him cope better but of course he never gets over it. When an unexpected person shows up, everyone's life will get turned upside down. This one is well written and the story flows smoothly. I recommend this one!

We meet Tristen in Sinfully and know how much he loved Cami. Trying to move forward is a lot easier than everyone makes it out. Everywhere he goes is a reminder of her. Finally one day he meets Aria. She slowly show Tristen how to move forward without forgetting the past. Tristen doesn't think he will ever find love until one day Aria calls him to come to see her at work. She has a big surprise. Can Tristen learn to move forward? I would

In order to understand what exactly is happening you must read Sinfully first. This can definitely be read as a stand alone but to fully grasp the characters and get to know them the first book is your best bet.

I truly enjoyed this story. I actually felt like I was there w/ them going through every twist and turn of the story. Amazing! I highly recommend this book to anyone who would love a relaxing weekend thrill!

Texas born and raised, I found my love for dirty books rather recently. I work in real estate for my normal job and I write contemporary romance. I plan on having Sinfully be the first of three in its series. I would like to do a standalone after, but we’ll see!
