Title: Take This Regret
Series: Take This Regret, #1
Author: A.L. Jackson
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

There are some mistakes we make that we will regret for the rest of our lives. For Christian, it was the day he betrayed Elizabeth. 

Christian Davison has a plan for his life. He is determined to become an attorney and to one day take his place as partner in his father’s law firm. Nothing will stand in his way, not even Elizabeth Ayers and their unborn child. 

After Christian cuts her from his life, Elizabeth spends the next five years struggling to provide for her daughter and willing to sacrifice anything to give her child a safe, comfortable life. 

For five years, Christian has regretted the day he walked away from his family and will do anything to win them back just as Elizabeth will do anything to protect her daughter from the certain heartache she believes Christian will bring upon them. 

When Christian wrestles his way into their lives, Elizabeth is faced with asking herself if it is possible to forgive someone when they’ve committed the unforgivable and if it is possible to find a love after it has been buried in years of hate. Or are there some wounds that go so deep they can never heal? 

They say everyone deserves a second chance.

Christian and Elizabeth thought they would be together forever. In college they each had dreams of being lawyers. But things changed when Elizabeth becomes pregnant and Christian makes the mistake of giving her an ultimatum. Him or the baby? 

Elizabeth makes the choice she is going to keep her baby. Christian later realizes he's a horrible person, and is really guilty about what he did. 

5 years later he moves to California where he finds his daughter. He knows from then on he has to make it right, and he will never leave her again. 

But Elizabeth doesn't want anything to do with him, and she doesn't trust him. 

This story was overall okay. It wasn't that great, but not bad either. I think Christian did a really stupid thing. But then I think what Elizabeth did towards the end was almost worse. I won't go into details but I really couldn't stand Elizabeth. She kept saying that she was trying to protect her daughter but in truth she was protecting herself, and hurting her daughter.  Not sure if I will read anymore in this series or not.
