Riley Walker makes all the right decisions and knows exactly where her life is headed.

Riley Walker does not make mistakes.

Riley Walker certainly doesn’t make spontaneous decisions.

But then Riley Walker gets dumped.

Spectacularly, gut-wrenching, stomp all over her heart dumped. And she is feeling more than a little angry. And a whole lot bitter. And suddenly the girl who has always done everything right feels like doing something completely wrong.

Garrett Bellows, lead guitarist for the local band, Generation Rejects, is going through life without a plan. Trying not to think past the next gig or the next party, he has worked hard to not become too attached to anyone or anything. So he is shocked to find himself drawn to the snarky girl with a chip on her shoulder. She pisses him off and puts him down. He knows she’s nothing more than a self-entitled college brat who thinks she’s better than the townie boy without a future.

Alcohol and a hefty dose of lust leads to a night both Riley and Garrett immediately regret. Her embarrassment, his pride and the weight of rumors and misconceptions convince Riley and Garrett that their one-time indiscretion will never be repeated. Particularly when their harshest critics are each other.

But how do you reconcile a head that wants to let go with a heart that keeps holding on?

And what happens when your biggest regret begins to seem almost perfect?


Amanda’s 5 Star Review

OH MY… TO SAY I LOVED THIS BOOK JUST DOESN’T DO IT JUSTICE!  If you loved Bad Rep by A. Meredith Walters as much as I did, then you have been dying to read Perfect Regret!!!  And let me tell you, you will not be disappointed!  I didn’t think I would like it as much as the first book….but now I know that I LOVE both books!!!  This book has everything we love… a strong female that is hilarious and witty, true love, heartbreak, a sexy bad boy rock star and everything in between!  LOVE LOVE LOVE!  Absolutely couldn’t put it down!!!
“What a stupid fool I had been.  Because if he was my biggest regret then it was the most perfect regret of my life.”
Perfect Regret picks up about 3 months after Bad Rep ended.  Summer is coming to an end and Riley Walker has just had her heart broken!  Miss Perfect who always has a plan and doesn’t make mistakes was dumped.  And she is being swallowed by her anger and self pity!  So she decides after drinking WAY too much that she should be spontaneous and just be bad for once in her life…
“I was going to do this. I was going to have sex.  With Garrett freaking Bellows.”  ~Riley
Garrett Bellows is the lead guitarist for Generation Rejects!  Garrett is a townie who has no goals and doesn’t even think about the future!  His only thoughts are about when he will throw his next party or get high.  He has worked hard to not emotionally attach himself to anyone for years!  But Riley gets under his skin… he is drawn to her and he has no idea why because she hates him and she pisses him off!!
“I don’t particularly like you, Riley.  But right now I want to fuck you.”  ~Garrett
They both immediately claim to regret that night…with her embarrassment and his pride they both decide it was a one time thing that will NEVER be repeated!  But when Garrett supports her when her world is turned upside down, Riley begins to realize that there is more to Garrett than just a townie with no future!  And they both begin to realize that they may just be what the other person has been looking for!
“We’ve found something in each other that we want.  Hell if I understand why.  Out of all the fish in the sea, I had to hook you. One giant, snarly toothed piranha ready to bite my fingers off.” ~ Garrett
The sexual chemistry between Riley and Garrett was off the charts HOT!!!  I mean OMG HOT!  Garrett was so sweet and romantic and had me completely in love with him!  He is definitely SWOON WORTHY!!!  But what really made this book perfect for me was how hilarious Riley was!  Her sarcasm and sense of humor had me laughing out loud so many times!  I liked her in book one and I loved her even more in this book!  We also get a little more of our first Bad Rep couple, Maysie and Jordan, which I know we all love to get more!  This is A MUST READ, another absolutely AMAZING BOOK!
