Blog Tour: Unclaimed Regrets by Stacy M. Wray

I’m in limbo. If you look close, you’ll see that I’m basically going through the motions. If you look even closer, you’ll see that I’m empty and frustrated as hell with my life.

And then it arrives. That four by six card that tells me ten years have gone by when I wasn’t paying attention. I’m paying attention now.

Pulling my dusty box of memories from the closet shelf, my index finger slowly sifts through the keepsakes that represent the aura of Trey Masterson. The boy who moved from Missouri to Vermont and swept me off my feet the first day of our sophomore year. The boy who I never thought I’d have a chance with but he only had eyes for me. The boy I fell in love with and never stopped.

When we see each other again at our high school reunion, every feeling I ever had for him bleeds from my heart and leaks into every cell of my existence, and I finally feel like I can breathe for the first time in years. I don’t quite get the same reaction from him. In fact, his reaction is downright…cold?

Never knowing the reason of our undoing after I went away to college, I just want some closure. But we can’t seem to carry on a conversation without sparking a slew of emotions - each word igniting all the hurt that’s been buried for ten years.

During the week of our stay in our small town in Vermont, we keep crossing paths but jealousy, bitterness and tragedy threaten to hinder any hopes of possibly rekindling the passion we once shared.

Unclaimed Regrets is available for purchase:

Well, that was quite the blurb. I think they covered just about every part of the story! And quite the story it was. It was super easy to get through and the story was cute. It had an insta-love scenario between the new kid in town and the "underdog"/not so popular girl. The pair got together by halfway through the novel and the rest was just all the bumps and bruises they encountered after the fact. BOY did these two have horrible timing. I think everything that could go wrong went wrong--that's what made it so nice when they finally work things out in the end. The writing was blunt, simple, and at times awkward. The read was still enjoyable, though, as the story was decent and aww-inducing. The author definitely left room for a sequel or, at least, a related story!
