Jan 13, 2015 rated it did not like it
I got to page 30 and had to stop. I could see the potential there...but it was really hard to get into this book.

(view spoiler)
I am not a fan of stories where there are baby mamas. I wish the synopsis would have indicted that the hero had a kid with OW. Not in the mood for that type of drama.

Not for me, but may work for you.

Damien you can tell right off this boy is head over heels for Mia, "do I hug her? I'm not sure. Eff it. I pull her into my chest, burying my nose in her hair. Every nerve ending in my body is instantly alive." He's also the voice of reason when Mia can't be reached, "Damien puts his hands on my cheeks. "Breathe. It's ok. I'm here with you. It's just a power outage or something. You're safe." His chuckle makes me furious. "Baby, you need to breathe." Damien is always hungry, well for something th ...more

Oh my freaking god! I don't even know where to start this review!
I adored this book! Like I can't gush about it enough! Let me try to explain my feelings without giving anything away!!

I always wanted Damien and Mia to get together, I knew there would be a story I wanted to read but I didnt realise what an epic story it would be! I loved the sexual tension between them, the longing that they had for each other, but god there were points I wanted to knock some sense into them!!

OMG!!! I fell into cover lust when I saw this book...those tats...those eyes...sigh. Wait until you meet him in the pages of Liquid Regret, you will fall even deeper. If that's not enough, the song lyrics will take you the rest of the way under. Just imagine him singing this, "You'll call me sir as you shatter on cue. A flick of my tongue, I'll own you". You will fall in love with all the band members in Liquid Regret. They are brothers, a family that stand

Well what can I say about Liquid Regret? M.J.Carnal has given us a fantastic story that mesmerises you from the start.
Liquid Regret are the hottest band on the circuit, led by Damien “D Rey” Reynolds. He is super sexy, but he is living a life of regret. He regrets leaving Mia Lee behind. They only spent a week together over a year ago, but neither of them can forget it.
All the characters have their own special traits & blend together wonderfully.

I had no clue about this book because Sanne (Co-Blogger & Partner In Crime) was the one who signed up to review, but it was my week to set up post and you would never guess what I came across......Yep, once I read the Blurb I had to read. It felt like a magnet just pulling me in.

Oh Wow......MJ Carnal did not take this one easy or fun loving. Right from the get go this book took off like a stallion on a mission to win and by God I was going to hold on for one hell of a ride.

I was sad to see the Moretti Novels end, but I was very excited for the new series!! We meet Damien in Untamed, Moretti Novel 5. Damien is Steve's cousin and briefly dates Lily until he is introduced to Mia, Lily's sister.
Damien is attracted to Mia but knows he is starting a tour with his band Liquid Regret.

I have to say that I'm a bit surprised by the really high reviews for this book. The characters didn't suck me in at all, and weirdly, the supporting cast was much more interesting than the main couple.
Crystal Brueningsen

Okay, this book had me all kinds of emotional. I love the characters and stories. It is hard for me to express how much I really love this book. You have to read it for yourself to get it.

I am so excited to read the rest of the series and have MJ's entire collection now. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

Thank you MJ for introducing me to your work.
You rock lady!
Bookish Addict
Great writing but the story line is ok. I didn't care for either characters and their second chance love story. I thought it was weird with too many lies, but hardly any drama other than the murder mystery side story that was never resolved in this book. I assume will have closure at some point in the other books. Not a bad story, just not to my liking. I thought the side characters were more interesting.

This is the first book I have read from this author. Right from the beginning she drew me in and kept me captivated until the very end. She delivers on the drama, romance, danger, and a very sexy hero. Very interesting secondary characters. You can't wait to here their story and wonder what happened to them in their past.
There was a moment when you may need your tissues. Also moments which were risque'. This couple isn't bashful about having sex publicly. Although once seemed a little inappropr

One week in time changed two people’s lives forever. But that one week was not to be the last of their time together.
Mia knew she should have never let him just walk away after that one week, but she also knew she couldn’t have stopped him from his destiny as a rock star. It took time but she was getting her life together than one day in a bar with her friend she felt the tingle and heard his voice and knew it was him. But now he was engaged and she would never be the other women.

This is the first book I've read from M.J. Carnal but it for sure won't be the last. I had heard nothing but good things about her work and after meeting her at a signing I knew I had to go for it. While there are a few slight references to her other series, The Moretti Novels, you don't have to read that for this one to flow.

Liquid Regret follows the story of Damien and Mia and is told in a dual POV. I liked the alternating POV especially since they spend a lot of time apart. Why did they spen

One year on after meeting Mia and spending only one week together, falling in love with her with only the experience of her kiss, before the band went on tour and Damien is still reminiscing about her being “the one that got away”.

Wow! This book rocked its ass off. Don't let the length fool you. This book packs a serious punch. This new series by MJ is based on a rock band. And our lead boy Damien gets the first book!

WOW! Liquid Regret has been on my TBR for a while and I will admit I had it on my Kindle for quite some time before I was finally able to get to it. Now I'm kicking myself that I waited so long! What an amazing book! This story is so much more than just another hot rocker and his journey to finding true love. It's full of emotion and twists and turns and keeps the reader wanting more.

Holy mother of all things holy!! This book made me feel such a wide range of emotions. I literally could not put this book down!! Liquid Regret is hot, sexy, funny and sad all rolled into an awesome Josh McCann covered book!

I love me some rockers and this series looks like it aims to please. From beginning to end I felt everything that the characters felt, I laughed and cried when they did.. I'm sure it was an ugly cry thank god my husband was sleeping so he couldn't laugh at me.

We first meet Damien or D Rey in MJ Carnal's last Moretti book Untamed when we find out he's Steve's long lost cousin. We get a glimpse at his past and his personality - enough that we wanted more. So we got it! We also met Lily's sister Mia who had a thing for Damien. But we are left wondering what's going to happen between the two because Damien does on tour.

Liquid Regret picks up quite some time after and we soon realize that neither has forgotten about the other. However, bad choices have ca

Wonderful book. Damien and Mia had an encounter a year ago. He had to leave because his band, Liquid Regret, blew up the music scene. Damien couldn't forget about Mia. He slept his way through numerous women just to get her out of his head. They finally meet up again. Instant combustion. I felt so bad for Mia because of the way they had to lie and play the game of the record company. I loved this group of guys. They have a brotherhood and share a bond like none other.
