Haunted by Regret Cover by Ashley Lane


Haunted (adjective)- Preoccupied with an emotion, memory, or idea; obsessed.

Itโ€™s what happens to a man that loses his entire family.
The first years that followed their demise were the worst.

Determined to inflict even a fraction of my pain onto those responsible,
I paid them back the same way they paid me.
I was content to live out my days knowing justice was dealt at my hands.

Consumed with rage.
Obsessed with revenge.
Haunted by regret.

Years later, I take in two boys and suddenly itโ€™s no longer only about me.

Thatโ€™s where she comes in.
A broken nanny who heals us all.

Haunted by Regret is standalone but I feel like you NEED to read books one and two, Washed in Blood and Silenced by Sinย to fully appreciate not only the main characters but all the unique and amazing side characters that are just as important to the story.

Get the tissues ready you guys, this one is sure to tug on the heart. While the prior two books were about vengeance and justice for the innocents, Bullet’s story was more about hope and healing. I won’t give a rundown of the story because the blurb describes it perfectly but I will say it was a beautiful change of pace and while there was still some drama and suspense thrown in to mix things up a bit and keep readers on the edge of their seats, Haunted by Regret was way more PG than Lane’s previous Heaven’s Guardian’s MC releases.

๐Ÿ’™ (๐“—) ๐“—๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ธ: Hawk ‘Bullet’ Bentley, like the other members of Heaven’s Guardian’s Hawk has been through his fair share of pain. We have met Bullet in the previous books, but in Haunted by Regret… we meet Hawk. After losing his family at a young age he grew to accept that he would be alone forever. But when two innocent little boys, brothers, are about to be separated and placed in foster care, Hawk steps in and agrees to take the boys in and keep them together. Raising two young kids isn’t as easy so Hawk hires a nanny, Holly. But with the boys there and Holly who he starts developing feelings for, things start feeling a little too much like family. It doesn’t take long before Bullet gets in his head and becomes overwhelmed with thoughts of his past.

When she gets hired as a nanny to two sweet little boys, she could have never imagined that those two little boys and the big, bad, biker man who’s raising them would become her world. But Bullet isn’t the only one with a traumatic past, Holly has her own secrets and demons to work through…

But it was still enjoyable. I found the banter between Hawk and Holly adorable and laughed out loud many times. Don’t get me wrong, there was definitely still some steam though, although there is a whole lot of sexual tension, the first steamy scene is at about 53% in.

My favorite part of this series is how much of a family these guys are. But I can’t NOT mention the boys! Falcon is three years old and absolutely adorable! That little boy stole my heart just as quick as his protective big brother Tobias did. Tobias may only be ten years old, but he’s his little brother’s keeper and my heart cracked at all that these kids have been through, especially Tobias.

Ashley Lane has beenย passionate about words her entire life.

Her true love affair with books began when her husband surprised her with a Kindle forย Ashley Lane LogoChristmas in 2014. Since then, sheโ€™s become infatuated with words and the way they can break her but make her whole at the same time.

Ashleyโ€™s love for reading transformed and became a need to share stories that have been inside her head and heart for years.ย In 2018 after some much convincing on her husbandโ€™s part, she opened a Word document, and Priest and the Heavenโ€™s Guardians MC was born.

Being the boy mom of an almost 2-year-old and 9-year-old means she lives off Goldfish crumbs and Diet Coke. But when she does have a spare minute of time to herself, you can typically find her parked on the couch, Kindle within reach, catching up on the previous weekโ€™s episode of Greyโ€™s Anatomy or Hellโ€™s Kitchen.
