  • Cristina | CristiinaReads
    ➳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 fi...
  • Melisa
    This is a coming of age tale of a woman who discovers she has a long-lost, wealthy family in New York City. It is a dark, edgy, gritty story of a life that has been changed tremendously by these circumstances. I’m not going to lie, I was first drawn to this book by it’s gorgeous cover, and it is one that suits it well. I especially enjoyed reading about the places in NYC that I was familiar with, I love how it took on a life of its own and wa...

  • ☆Dani☆ ☆Touch My Spine Book Reviews☆
    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'...

The story starts off at a funeral for Laila’s mom, who passed away suddenly. Her cousins show up at the funeral to pay their respects, only she had no idea they existed. Laila grew up relatively poor so when she realizes her cousins are wealthy socialites who live in New York... well, you can guess what can happen...
  • Gabby
    This book is full of #RichPeopleProblems. It's definitely not my thing. This story follows a twenty-three year old girl named Laila Laurence who discovers she has a bunch of rich cousins living in Manhattan, New York when her parents die. She takes a chance and moves to New York to live with her wealthy cousins and becomes swept up in the elite privileged lifestyle that they have always known.

    She Regrets Nothing sucks you in from the very first page and doesn't let go until the end. I could not put this book down. The unexpected twists and turns had my heart racing as I read through this book. It's like Sex and the City with a high stakes, scandalous edge to it.Laila Lawrence is 23 years old when she finds out that she has long lost family living in New York City. The Lawrence family is one of the wealthiest and well-known families in...
  • Amy
    Raise your hand if you were a fan of Gossip Girl? Either the books or the TV series, I preferred to binge the series, but I digress. If you liked those books back in the day then She Regrets Nothing should be your next read. It’s a more adult version with a darker edge but still explores the glamorous side of the elite society in NYC. This was scandalous, juicy and full of family drama.Laila never knew she had wealthy, albeit estranged family m...

    ❝I didn’t realize that matchmakers still existed,❞ ❝Welcome to New York,❞ ❝How do you think all of those gross old men find their hot young wives?❞ When I read the blurb for 'She Regrets Nothing', I was intrigued, and since Andrea Dunlop is a new-to-me-author, I was excited to start reading about a story that was said to be, "Sly and sexy, She Regrets Nothing is a sharply observed and utterly seductive tale about family, fortun...
  • Ellen at Book Bellas
    3.5 Stars A 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 re...
  • The Lit Bitch
    Lately I have had a desire to read a few more contemporary novels that are out of my traditional review genre. I have been particularly interested in books about ‘lifestyles of the rich and famous’ but with a darker twist.That was what caught my eye about this book… sounded like something a little more complex than regular contempo lit. I liked that it featured the wealthy and privileged society but at the same time showed the seedier s...
  • Ally (book__ventures)
    With my first experience with Andrea Dunlop's writing, I was pleasantly surprised. She Regrets Nothing has a sophisticated heir about it. The story was a mix of Gossip Girl and Sex and the City. She Regrets Nothing has everything you could want if you are craving a story anything like the two mentioned television shows: scandal, money, sex, affairs, and the lavish life of the upper class in New York City. The story centers around Laila Lawerence,...
  • The Blonde Bookworm
    Andrea Dunlop has become one of my auto-buy authors, and in her latest novel She Regrets Nothing, Dunlop does not disappoint. The reader follows along as Laila Lawrence is reunited with the wealthy side of her family. And not just a little wealthy, these people know how to spend money and have a lot of it to spend. They quickly take Laila under their wing in NYC and begin to teach her what its like to be wealthy. She Regrets Nothing is fast paced...
  • Jessica *The Lovely Books*
    3.5 Stars When I was first contacted to read She Regrets Nothing, all I saw in the subject line was “Blair Waldorf would certainly approve”. That was it for me—I didn’t even need to read the rest of the blurb. Gossip Girl is my guilty pleasure—I started watching the show in high school and to this day, I still watch it. Sue me. If someone says Blair freaking Waldorf approves of something, you bet your ass I’m reading it! Drama? Yes! S...
  • Meg - A Bookish Affair
    3.5 stars. In "She Regrets Nothing," family secrets, entitlement, and villains abound! Laila has always regretted that she has been forced to live a reasonably unexciting life just outside of Detroit due to her parents' previous transgressions. When she is left an orphan, her rich, glittering cousins from New York City come to bring her back into the fold. Laila is excited to have family again or maybe she's just excited to have access to the fam...

After spending some time researching their backgrounds, she quickly discovers that they come from a pretty wealthy bloodline that she was excluded from due to a riff in the family. Seeing that she is now an orphan left with nothi...

    Do not, I repeat, do not eff with Laila. This girl is cray, cray. Hellbent on a mission towards the way to reach her goal. Be rich, like she should have been in the first place! I felt all kinds of sorry for Laila at the beginning. Yeah, she will do that to you. Her naivety and wonderment, so endearing.A cousin of a major wealthy NYC family who has been denied her due. That would be the huge share of the wealth that was kept from her due to her d...

    I won, She Regrets Nothing in a Goodreads 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 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...

    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 more complicated world, characters who are more 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 ...
  • Amy
    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 ...
  • Kate
    If you're like me and are missing your weekly glimpse into the lives of New York's elite via Gossip Girl, I have terrific news for you. SHE REGRETS NOTHING by Andrea Dunlop is exactly what your CW-loving heart needs. Family drama, backstabbing, an "it" girl, a wannabe...I had so much fun with this book.The 411: After unexpectedly becoming an orphan at 23, Michigander Laila Lawrence is introduced to her cousins, Liberty, Leo, and Nora,  all of w...
  • Mariana
    This is the third book I read by Dunlop (counting the novella) and when I read the description I was very intrigued. I won't lie, I liked Losing the Light, but there was just something missing and I thought maybe this books could be the one I loved entirely. Unfortunately, it wasn't.The story is interesting, but it was too...shallow for me and a little bit slow in several parts. I could never like Laila or the twins, although I did like Liberty. ...
  • Georgia Clark
    A long-lost cousin enters New York society. Glitz, glamour, stolen kisses, and a family secret they'd kill to protect. She Regrets Nothing is a sexy, sizzling new read from Andrea Dunlop that you won't be able to put down. If this novel was a cocktail, it'd be a Manhattan... with a twist.
  • Bookworm Between the Sheets
    This is my first book to read by this author. I really enjoyed the plot of the story, but I felt the writing was not that great... I read the book cover to cover because I was super curious about the plot and how the story was going to end. If you love a crazy drama with multiple POVs you will enjoy this book!

    This book... GOOD GOD. I was absolutely enthralled from the first page, desperate to know what Laila would do next; what hole she would dig for herself. I considered myself a big fan of andrea dunlop before, but now... now I’m just in utter awe of the woman. Well done, my friend, well done.
