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.

What a perfect sequel. I adored Belle and Zeus even more in this book. Again, the writing and storyline flowed beautifully and I loved that it all played out "maturely" lol. I thought for sure this could have gone "wrong" in a lot fo different ways BUT this author truly surprised me!!!!!!!

Belle and Zeus.......loved these two!!!!!! Can't wait to read more by this author:)

A beautiful love story. Regret is the conclusion to the Twisted Hearts Duet and well worth the wait, Max Henry has done an excellent job of bringing Belle and Zeus’s troubled journey to a brilliant ending with heartfelt emotions, desire and joy.

I enjoyed the duet immensely and that’s how it must be read, with Desire, as it’s not a standalone. It’s a duet not to be missed, and I highly recommend it!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

Regret is the second book in Max Henry's Twisted Hearts Duet. You have to read Desire first or you are going to be so lost.

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. Whatever you do, don not tell him you still love him. I have never been one for doing what I am told.

Regret is the conclusion of a Belle and Zeus’s story and I can tell you that this book is brilliant. You need to have read Desire before attempting this book. I didn’t think that I could Zeus any more than I did well this book proved me wrong.

Belle is returning home after three years spent in Colorado learning her craft as a tattoo artist, she has everything planned out wanting to start up her own tattoo studio and getting a place to live with her age appropriate boyfriend Damien. Thinking that
Payne’s Bookworm Reviews (Samantha Payne)
ARC Reviewer

Coming home after 3 years with mixed emotions has Belle struggling to figure out what she wants to do. She has life goals she wants to accomplish like having her own place to live, her own studio to tattoo out of and happiness. But is it Damien or Zeus the one that can make that all happen?

Zeus has been a shell of a man for the last 3 years ever since he let his dove fly free, what will happened when he finds out she is back home. Will he be able to stay away like John warned him?

No words! I didn't know it was possible to love Zeus more than I already did.

He really does try putting everybody's happiness before his as he feels thats what they all need. Then he has this light-bulb moment.... MY HAPPINESS IS JUST AS IMPORTANT!

Max has drawn every bit of emotion with this one! older man - younger woman! The trials and tribulations they face. But in the end LOVE CONQUERS ALL.

Regret is the conclusion to Belle and Zeus’ forbidden love story.
Three years have past since they’ve seen one another.
But neither time nor distance can diminish what’s in their hearts.
While Belle has finished her three year apprenticeship and has Damien in her life,something is still missing for her.
Zeus has been at a standstill for the past three years.
His life as been on “hold.”
It was amazing to see these two characters grow and own their feelings.

Regret picks up three years after the ending we were left with in Desire. Belle's work visa for apprenticeship in Colorado is ending and she is preparing to go back home. Only she isn't going home alone, she has plans to take her boyfriend home with her....

"Do You want this?"
" Do you want what we have to continue when we get home?"

We find that Zeus has not had an easy time after saying goodbye to Belle.... John decides to show up at the garage to let Zeus know that Belle is arriving back

Favourite duet of 2018 by far!!!!! The agonising wait for 'Regret' is finally over. ( There was barely a 4 week wait between books, lol). After the gut wrenching ending of 'Desire', Belle is back home after having the work experience of a lifetime and now she is trying to continue her dream. Zeus has been living a stagnant existence since sending his Dove away to live her life. Now she's back, his life has a purpose, he wants his life to have colour and joy, that is all in the form of his Belle. ...more

Hooray it’s finally here! I’ve only been waiting forever for this release! Ok, so that is a major exaggeration, I’ve only been waiting a few weeks, but it felt like forever. I am in love with the way Max writes her books! They speak to my soul, they pull me in, they hold me captive from start to finish. And the emotions! Oh, the emotions take you over, they make you feel everything the characters feel! Regret is Book 2 in the Twisted Hearts duet. We met Belle and Zeus in Desire, the tale of Forb ...more

I am so happy that I was able to read the second book in this series and let me tell you- A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!! The first book Max Henry wrote, Desire, was good but Regret is amazing! Seriously, I devoured this book in two days. That being said it is a series but I do think that you could possibly read it as a standalone since you will get the idea that Belle is not supposed to be with her dad's best friend, Zeus. I know, I know, dad's best friend? Don't worry because while he is older than Belle, h ...more

Age gap older man/younger woman romance

The age difference between the leads was perfect, as well as the complicated history between Zeus (awesome name!) and her parents. It may be nit picky, but I never got a real sense of what either of these characters looked like. They rarely described one another in ways that allowed me to fully flesh them out physically. This is a huge problem when you’re trying to imagine the attraction between them. Also, the cover helped but little as Zeus was described

Max Henry continues to smoothly take her readers on the journey of Belle's life with this second book.

Three years has flown by for Belle where she has learnt how to be a tattoo artist in Colorado. The next step is to go back to New Zealand, home to her dad but also where Zeus lives as well. Not easy for anyone.

I enjoyed the little twists and turns in the storyline which really added an element that kept you mulling things over and waiting for the unexpected. This author has a wonderful skill in
So that’s the end. I guess I can be happy with the epilogue. Would I have read even more into their future? OF COURSE. I loved them together. The story progressed very naturally even I feel I wanted them to be together from the second they saw each other when she got back from the states. The book takes place three years later, and Belle I saw returning to New Zealand to begin her life. She planned to bring her current boyfriend Damien it has her but he decided he wanted to travel more then com ...more

Yes Yes YES to everything about this book! This picks up 3 years after the events that ended Desire – so I would recommend you read that first to completely follow this one. If you do not, it’s not the end of the world because the author does a great job of bringing the reader up to speed with events. Belle is back home after a 3 year apprenticeship in America. She’s supposedly moved on from Zeus but that first look at him brings it all rushing back. Her father has built his friendship with Zeus ...more

Old emotions emerge from the depths: REGRET. 5 stars.

A beautifully written and heartfelt story of forbidden love that made me question, what constitutes forbidden love between two people who live for each other, who’s hearts beat for each other, and, without whom the other is only half of a whole??? I think Max Henry answers it here.

Regret picks up three years after the end of Desire. Belle, with the aid of Zeus, has realised her dreams of being trained as a tattooist under the guidance of a muc

Great Duet!!!

I am seriously loving the writing direction Max is taking of late. She’s a talented writer and just keeps getting better and better.
I was dying to read Regret after Desires ending, I mean I was on the each of my seat with anticipation. Regret didn’t disappoint!
Belle has obviously had a great time doing her apprenticeship in the States, honed her skill and talent and is ready to go home. Damien is for all intents and purposes her boyfriend but you don’t feel any spark with them.
Michelle Brace (Wicked Babes Blog Reviews)
So bittersweet to get the conclusion to this couples story. If you haven't read Desire then I highly recommend you do in order to enjoy this book. This book takes place 3 years after the first one ended and Belle is coming home.

With Belle coming home it rekindles the love she thought she was moving past while away but realizes never left. Not only that but causes Zeus to start spiraling. He tries to stay away but they both need the closure they never had 3 years ago. With that comes more than th

I have been waiting rather impatiently for this conclusion to Max Henry's Twisted Hearts Duet and Regret is everything I knew it would be! Whilst you may guess at the conclusion as to where this story will go, the journey is no less sweet, heart breaking, tortured and stunning.

Having spent 3 years overseas realising and honing her career dreams, Belle returns home more mature and driven but no less emotionally adrift than when she departed.
Zeus too, not surprisingly, has not moved on and his res

Regret is the second book in the Twisted Hearts Duet, so you MUST read Desire (Book 1) FIRST! Three years have passed when Belle comes home, and she's trying to figure out what she wants to do. Zeus hasn't been the same man for the past three years, as he's been heartbroken, since he let her go, even though he knew it was the right thing to do. But now that she's home, will he still be able to leave her alone? This story has brought out all of my emotions, as it has been heartbreaking, because t ...more

The follow up to Desire, this book picks up as Belle is finishing her apprenticeship in Colorado and preparing to move back home.

At the last minute, her boyfriend Damien decides he’s not coming home straight away, but will continue to travel for another few weeks. So Belle is faced with returning home alone.

It soon becomes clear that although she’s tried to move on emotionally, Zeus is still occupying the main space in her heart. Just as she does in his.

What a fantastic conclusions to this fantastic duet, I was left reeling and heartbroken when
Desire ended and I really wasn't sure what direction Regret would head in but rest assured Max Henry didnt disappoint. She repaired my heart and I finished this book with a happy heart.

I was engrossed in this taboo story, that really wasn't taboo in my opinion. It really is a heart and soul love story. I can't explain enough just how beautiful this story is. Amongst the beauty there is complete bitterness

Max has done it again:

I fell in love with the storyline of This Twisted Heart Duet, let’s not forget the loveable leads Belle & Zeus. I was captivated by their story their battles and their tenacity to fight for each other in Desire. Whilst the road to their relationship was rocky I still hoped they would find their way back to each other.

Regret is the second instalment in the series and I couldn’t wait to see how their story unfolded. Max did a great job in packing emotion throughout this boo

Regret picks up 3yrs after then end of Desire. I loved this story so much I read it in one sitting, I needed to see how everything ended. I had so many ups and downs reading this, it is such an addicting read.

Belle is on her way home from the states ready to start her own tattoo shop and is in a new relationship with the guy she met on the plane when she first left.

Zeus is miserable and lonley without Belle, he has pretty much given up on caring and just lives day to day, yet as soon as he fin

Regret picks up a little while after Desire ends - Belle is still overseas, and getting ready to pack up and head home. But is she heading home to only her family, or Zeus as well?

Max Henry certainly put my heart through the wringer in Regret, there were times when I wasn’t sure what was going to happen, not just between Belle and Zeus, but also in their lives away from each other.
Zeus was literally a shell of the man we first met, he’d shut himself off from everyone and everything and he’s wasn

Which probably stands to reason why each of her books takes the reader on an emotional journey that not only promises twists, turns, and suspense but a heart-wrenching journey where her
