    • Family drama, complications from the past and new faces to be reacquainted with and get to know That s the kind of novel you expect from Andrea As a New Yorker, and as someone who has gained an understanding as to how people portray the whole aspect of being a New Yorker or new to said state and the city, I can rightfully say that this story was indeed on the right path towards leading to something outstanding I was hesitant at first when getting to the ideal story plots and how Laila Lawrence, [...]

    • Overall this was a likable book There was a lot of characters that I loved to hate and it went at a steady pace I was first intrigued by the synopsis and the cover and thought it would be interested This book was definitely interesting with the family drama and all the scandal that consumed the plot I felt this story was lacking a bit because it felt a bit too pretentious for my liking I was torn on the characters but I really LOVED Liberty s characterisation So overall this was a likable book f [...]

    • 3.5 StarsA peak into the glittering world of New York society and the conflict between a poor cousin and her fabulously wealthy family Described as a Gossip Girl type story, this book certainly delivers on describing the incredibly wealthy New York socialites and their often empty lifestyle There s romance, intrigue, family drama and blackmail all wrapped up in a shiny bow I found the main character, Laila, slightly unlikable Yet I kept reading to find out what she would do next Laila moves from [...]

    • I won, She Regrets Nothing in a Giveaway.This book is not yet released so I will keep my review brief, so as not to include any spoilers First, the cover is interesting initial impression was that it somehow gives the impression of the Show, Sex and the City I m not quite sure if this was intentional but when I began to read, I was amused to see the setting was in New York Good story, good characters I don t want to give too much away, but family is a through line I enjoyed the book and was thor [...]



    • I enjoyed Andrea Dunlop s first book but felt like She Regrets Nothing brought a heightened level of maturity and depth to her writing We find a complicated world, characters who are complex and with a wide swath of emotional needs The book is a beautiful reminder for those who have or do or want to live in NYC, about the quest for belonging in a city and culture that have no need for you It s both funny and scary and dark and light and honest.


    • It takes tremendous skill to populate a book nearly entirely with unlikable truly despisable characters and still make it a riveting page turner Andrea Dunlop has done just that.You may think you will like Laila, but you won t Oh, sure she starts off as some sort of Forever 21 wearing Midwestern innocent, but give her ten minutes of realizing that she is a member of an obscenely rich New York family, and she sloughs off her discount duds for a sense of entitlement Some of my favorite moments wer [...]
