5 Star Review ~ Surviving Regret by Meghan Smith

Release Day: August 25, 2016


One devastating night leaves friendships and relationships irrevocably changed.

Landon Hayes, an all-star wide receiver, is spiraling out of control after one shattering night that altered everything for him. He has one shining star left in his life but he knows he doesn’t deserve it.

Macy Thomas, a college sweetheart trying to find her way, is holding on to the boy who stole her heart. She’s stuck on the sidelines watching as he throws his life away though. The guilt is pulling him into the blackness threatening to take her and everything he has going for him along with it.

When the heartbreaking reality sets in, can Macy still be Landon’s guiding light or is the past too cloudy to help them find their way back to each other?

** This was previously released as Forever Light in October 2014. Surviving Regret has a new cover, has been fully reedited from cover to cover and over 20,000 words have been added.


I was given an arc to read for an honest review and I can honestly say I absolutely loved this book!! Landon and Macy had the sweetest love story. They were high school sweethearts and I must say their story was so sad, loving, heartbreaking and everything in between.

Landon did some horrible things while transitioning from high school to college.  So led to things not in his control and others led not only him but others in a path that was only destructive.  

After a night of partying, things that we will later find out happened in the car and the loss of a friend, the crew headed down a path that no one could ever imagine.  Madison, Macy's twin, has lost all of the things that made her who she was.  She is alone, she is sad and she is on a suicide mission.  Madison made a lot of wrong decisions and some of them was done to Macy.  How do you make it up to your sister when you did the worst thing imaginable?

"My shining star, you're always there shining the brightest out of all the millions of stars in the sky.  Even when the clouds roll in threatening to dull your light, you're still the brightest of them all. You're always letting me know that your are there no matter how dark it gets."
Everyone had their issues but Macy was always the one who brought everyone back to each other.  It was solely the love that she had for her friends that made them all depend on her love to live, to survive and to become to people they should be.  Macy is the strong one, the glue for this group despite all of the turmoil they face.

I am so glad I was contacted to read this book.  Not only was it a great story but there were a lot of issues that you would never imagine could and would happen.  I am very interested in reading more from Author Megan Smith!!
