Review: The One Real Regret by Janet Nissenson

Series: Bachelor

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: June 11, 2019

Max Wainwright's life has been filled with difficult choices, dating back to his rough upbringing in England, a life he left long ago. But as tough as some of those choices have been, he has never regretted making a single one of them – with the exception of the one he made several years ago during a business trip to Seattle. Walking away from the only woman he's ever really cared about continues to be the biggest regret of his life – the only regret. Jill Parrish was young, naïve, and impressionable when she first met and fell head over heels in love with the handsome, enigmatic Max Wainwright. She innocently believed their passionate affair would last forever, and that she had met the love of her life. But when he left her without a backwards glance, her heart and spirit were irrevocably broken, and she feared she would never be whole again. When Max and Jill meet again by chance, she's finally managed to move on, and is even contemplating an engagement to another man. Will Max find a way to overcome his deep-seated emotional issues and finally claim the only woman he's ever loved? Or will he risk losing Jill forever, and regretting it for the rest of his life?



Nancy's Review - Rating ★★★★★

This is the third in the Bachelor series and it didn't let me down. Max who is English by birth and lives in San Francisco by choice is very methodical. He meets Jill in Seattle who is much younger than him and after a brief affair he leaves her. Throughout the next couple of years she is all he can think about. Then fate steps in and throws them together on a job. She was the one that got away and the only regret he has. I loved this book and the whole series.



Janet is a lifelong resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, and currently resides on the coast just south of the city with her husband Steve and Golden Retriever Max. She worked in the financial services industry for over 20 years before turning her focus to producing running events. She has been writing for decades but Serendipity is her first self-published work. She plans five more related books in this series, each one a standalone, so never any cliffhangers or long waits to see what happens next!
