Natalie ✩★ The Biblioholic ★✩
I knew I needed to read this story once I caught a glimpse of its blurb. I'm a sucker for a second chance romance, especially when the people are still very much in love, which was the case for Kaden and Sadie.

Kaden was a rock god! He had an irrational ex-wife, two teenaged daughters, and he was head over heels in love with Sadie. Unfortunately, he was the only one. When tragedy strikes, he has to make a choice and he breaks both of their hearts in the process. Separated from the love of his lif

Angst and highly emotional is Claudia Burgoa's specialty and in My One Regret she's in top form. I don't want to give away anything out this plot because it was perfect and masterly laded out for us from start to finish but get those tissues ready because if you don't tear up while reading this story I wanna know what does make you cry... I wanted to physically hurt Kaden a few times throughout this book and hug Sadie and tell her it will be OK. Invested is an understatement to how I felt about ...more

Claudia Burgoa is a new-to-me-author. Recently, a friend of mine recommended her to me because she was releasing an angsty rockstar romance which is probably my favorite trope. So, my friend told me that I was going to absolutely LOVE the story and I would regret missing the opportunity to read and review My One Regret. And wouldn’t you know it…She was right!!! Now I am kicking myself and wondering why I have not read Burgoa previously because My One Regret was just phenomenal! This story was a

Favorite Quotes:

I’m too old to be kissing toads, knowing they’ll never become princes.

Sadie was an open book, and yet as strange as the deep blue sea. She was starlight with a hint of darkness. A beautiful chaos that drew me into her world.

Your smile brightens my day. You’re the sun. I’m a sunflower who follows you along.

I forgot that life is a sequence of beads of many sizes, colors, and textures. Just because I encounter a few ugly ones, doesn’t mean that it’s over.

My Review:

I don’t know what
I skimmed from around the 30% mark to call this done. I struggled with the writing, the overblown clichéd melodrama and ridiculous endearments the zero and heroine used for each other got on my wick. And when I say endearments I mean Snuggle Bunny, Booboo Bear, Hummingbird, Nightingale, Little Minx, Sadie Wadie Woo, Cuddle Bunny, Little Fairy - not sure if there were any others, my eyes had glazed over by then.

Not a fan of a ‘hero’ who has no balls.

That is all.
Anne Boleyn's Ghost
Every now and then, I actively seek out books featuring couples who are "on the rocks". Maintaining a healthy and happy relationship takes work. If done well, I enjoy romance novels that explore the ups and downs. I appreciate when people actually take accountability for their actions. I love a good grovel.

The hero, Kaden Hades (and naming a hero after the Greek god of death is befuddling), made unbearably stupid decisions. But that didn't bother me as much as it bothered other readers. Maybe be

1 ⭐- Ugh! Didn't like it or triggers or pet peeve!

Our heroine was discarded as trash and thrown out of the hero's life.
I did not like his attitude and she's a fool.
His daughters and ex-wife cause drama and separation.
I could not forgive him and his eldest daughter.

Just earlier I was getting a mani-pedi with his daughters, Hannah and Tess. For the first time, I believed that things were going to settle with them. They had finally accepted me.

I don’t think I could ever come up with the right words that would do this book justice! Emotional, surprises, angst, hate, love, jealousy, but most of all hope are just some of the words that come to mind when I reflect on this beautiful book!

My One Regret by Claudia is a must read of 2018.
This story ian emotional ride between present and past. You'll laugh and you'll cry so bring the tissues. She ad me in tears from the start but couldn't put it down unless I had to, it's that good.
Claudia has such a way with making you feel the emotions as she brings her characters to life. Claudia just oozes passion in her stories, this is my second read of hers and I'm hooked for more.

I did enjoy it but skimmed a fair bit of the first 2/3rds.
Kaden and Sadie fall in love but his evil ex-wife throws a spanner in the works and Kaden falls for it like a fool. Sadie steps back like a martyr. Add in unhappy childhoods for both Kaden and Sadie, and his two messed up kids from his first marriage.
I do love second chance romances, but they are often plagued with rashes of flashbacks. This story suffered from that in the first half.

I dont know where to start on this book...

Mega amount of time reading about dude trying to get the heroine. It was over the top and made me wonder how he could manage doing so much while being some sort of rock star. All his time was about her, his songs (Which lyrically were just too much)... And so it goes until she finally opens up her hollier than thou heart to him.

Then shit hits the fan and all the blame goes to her and he breaks up with her instead of fixing it? When in fact, there was n

There is a reason I always go into Claudia's books blind. It's because I know I'll love it and I just love the surprise I get from not knowing one iota of the storyline. I was hooked from page one. Yes, from page one.

Kaden Hades was definitely not looking for "The One". Being a famous Rockstar who was badly burned by is ex he was definitely not looking for anything permanent. Sometimes the stars align and our heart collides with our soulmate. When he sees the girl at the coffee shop he feels th

My One Regret will take you on an emotional journey. A tsunami of emotions - from falling in love to heartbreak to healing. The raw vulnerability Claudia Burgoa shows is breathtakingly beautiful. Reminding us that sometimes with love there is pain.

My One Regret will leave an imprint on your soul.

I beta read this book at it's early stages. I re-read after all editorial changes were made. The best thing about Beta reading for Ms. Burgoa, is that she takes a lot of suggestions and she is so easy and wonderful with beta read for.

After my re-read, the story is just as wonderful as my Beta read. Ms. Burgoa has a way to bring in the emotions from the prologue until the end.

A poignant beautiful story about family, love, and forgiveness. The term family usually has one perception for most people but this is why I fell in love with Claudia's stories from book 1 in the Unexpected series. Family can be made up by many different shapes and sizes and in some cases the love of a non-blood family member is so much more meaningful, permanent, and unconditional than that of a blood relative.

That is the case in My One Regret. Kaden and Sadie both come from broken homes albeit

Right from the very start this book drew me in. Two people.... living a lie. Going day by day, and are slowly dying on the inside. No spark left in them, until they meet for the very first time.

A Rocker, and a young girl that will find homage in his heart.

Love, sex, pain, and heartbreak.
These two live for the angst, and drama bestows upon them. But their love for one another will hold firm.

My One Regret was a bittersweet read that made my heart pitter patter.

What an emotional read! I always approach this author's novels with trepidation and a box of tissues because you can always guarantee that her stories will be heart-wrenching but so beautiful.

Claudia has become one of my must read authors. She has a way of creating stories that grip you and suck you in and My One Regret was no exception. This novel took you on an emotional roller-coaster ride from the start and continued right until the end. Your heart will break and you will fall in love. Kaden and Sadie, the rockstar and the florist, two unique complex characters, will have you rooting for them from day one. You will enjoy the journey of watching them fall in love.

I have been wanting to read Claudia Y. Burgoa for some time now. When I had the chance to read My One Regret, I immediately decided to jump on the chance to read and review. From the blurb I knew this would be an emotional and angst-filled read and I was not wrong. The feels were strong with this one and I could not stop reading.

Kaden Hades was full of regret. He let the love of his life go to put his kids first. He felt he was doing the right thing, but he never stopped loving her. Then he fin

Claudia has done it again! This time we meet Sadie Bell and Kaden Hades. At first sight, they acknowledge a zig between the two of them. Yet Kaden, being the singer of Killing Hades, has gained the image of a player. Sadie believing in soulmates tries to protect her heart by pushing him away. However, Kaden can’t keep away from Sadie as an invisible magnetic force attracts him to her. One creates the walls and the other has the sledgehammer to bring those walls down.

She's done it again! MOR will give you all the feels. Love, jealousy, angst... you name it, MOR has it!

Kaden and Sadie both come from what you may call dysfunctional families. Kaden, now a rockstar, is a divorced father of two, and Sadie is a single flower shop owner who has been a fan of Kaden's band Killing Hades. They met at a coffee shop where Killing Hades played one day. From that day on, Kaden couldn't keep away from Sadie, but Sadie didn't want to fall for him. Until the day she let go.

People, this was an amazing story, I'm heartbroken, but I have my happy smile because it had a HEA.
Claudia Burgoa knows how to write good, joyful, heart wrenching stories, she writes beautifully.

The MCs had both dark, sad childhood, it's just magic they could become such beautiful, soulful people.
They were soulmates, they had this special kind of love...

I'm in love with Sadie. This girl has inner light, she was patient, tender and nice to people around her, in spite of her
