Blog Tour & Giveaway: The Rules of Regret by Megan Squires!


Publication date: 1st October 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars

Synopsis: “Life doesn’t come with a blueprint, which makes it hard to have any plans.”
Nineteen-year-old Darby Duncan is finally on her own. Her boyfriend of six years has left for a high-powered summer internship, though in reality he’s been absent for much longer than that. This newfound freedom wasn’t a part of Darby’s plans, but as she’s come to discover, plans only exist on paper, not in reality.

And guys like Torin Westbrook aren’t supposed to exist in reality, either. But he does, with his disheveled curly hair, irresistible dimples, and endearingly quirky habit of reciting quotes from classic movies and ancient thinkers. When Darby meets Torin as a fellow counselor at the survival camp she impulsively applies to, she’s certain his main goal is to turn her world upside-down.

But Darby’s not sure she can adapt to Torin’s ways of viewing his past and the tragedies he's faced. Because she’s had her own share of heartache, too, and as much as she wants to believe that it’s all been for a purpose, her grief hasn’t allowed her to get to that point. Yet the more Darby is around Torin, the more she craves the freedom to break out of her carefully constructed routine and mindset and fall into something new.

She’s just not sure that she should be falling for Torin along the way.

I adored this book! Completely adored it! I wasn't really sure what to expect from it as I only read a rough draft of the synopsis when I started reading it! I like reading a synopsis before starting a book to get a feel for it, but what I got from this book without reading a synopsis was amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed it! The plot of this book started out really cute and innocent and then it got outrageously hot! I loved it! It was also written brilliantly and some of the quotes in it made me smile like crazy! They were so inspirational and so wise! There were also some twist and turns that I didn't see coming in this book! Some twists were good for the main character and some bad! The plot was also about self discovery and about letting go in order to move forward! I haven't read a book quite like this one before or even a book with a similar plot! I fell head over heels in love with everything about this book! The characters were also amazing! Darby was the main character and I adored her! She had such a fresh attitude! She faced a lot of her fears in this book and she also learned so much about herself! Torin was the love interest of Darby and his outlook on life was so unique! He taught Darby so much! In fact I actually think he's going to teach everyone that reads this book something! We might all understand it a different way, but I'm pretty sure you'll come away from this book having learned something and life and the importance of it! Torin wasn't like other male characters in books I read! He was quirky and he had so much wisdom around him! He was such an interesting character and I found myself really intrigued by him! He was also pretty damn hot! There was sort of a love triangle in this book between Darby, Torin and Darby's boyfriend, Lance! I didn't like Lance that must too be honest! I didn't like the way he treated Darby and he was pretty self-centred! I know that this book is a standalone and that actually makes me downright sad! I'm going to miss Darby and also Torin's wonderful wisdom! I'm looking forward to reading more from this author though! I read this book when it didn't have a cover and as I was reading it I started to get an image of what the cover could look like! The cover is even better then I imagined! I can't even put into words how much it suits the story and how stunningly beautiful it is! I definitely need to get myself a copy in paperback! Big thank you to Megan for an ARC of The Rules of Regret and also for having me on her Blog Tour!
