Is it too late to convince Brayden she wants him in her life and that she’s in it for the long haul? Most of all, can she accept that sometimes bad things happen no matter how hard you try to protect yourself from them? Can she put it all behind her or will she live an unfulfilled life full of regrets?

Regret Me Not Book Trailer
I finished Regret Me Not a few days ago, but before I could write and voice my thoughts on Kenzie and Brayden's story, I wanted to give my heart time to get back to normal. Because for me, even though Regret Me Not is a fictional story with fictional characters, it's a very emotional read, and the message the author sends is a very true life lesson to learn and to hold on to. And one which I very much agree on with all of my heart: Every life has worth and meaning, no matter how short that life is. But as I write this review, the tears are coming again, tears not only for the heartbreak, but also the bond of Kenzie and Brayden's love creates that will bring healing for so many people.
I fell head over heels in love with the star high school Quarterback, Brayden. Brayden's love for Kenize is a beautiful love of honor and treasuring forever, even if it means he has to let go. Brayden goes through hell and back to show Kenize that his love is true and meant forever, and that she is his heart.
Kenzie (Mackenzie) was kind of hard for me at first, but as you read and understand what her life has become, and what she has given up because of older sister, she becomes a more likable, understandable character. I have to say, I too would be angry and bitter. Finding it difficult to believe and trust in guys when it comes to their love after what her sister has gone through. But this is where Kenzie has to find her own truth for love and life.
Regret Me Not is a very emotional story. And it ripped my heart to pieces. But it’s also a story of healing and trusting, learning that even the bad has a reason for our lives, even the ones we regret and hurt us. And every life has meaning and purpose. No matter how small or how long that life. Kenzie and Brayden's romance is a love story you will not want to miss. I recommend Regret Me Not as a must read.
5 Hearts of Love
Danielle Sibarium grew up as an only child of divorced parents in Brooklyn, New York. Her imagination was developed at an early age. Surrounded by stuffed animals and imaginary friends, she transported herself into a fantasy world full of magic and wonder. Books were the gateway between her play world and reality. On any given summer afternoon she became Snow White sweeping and cooking for the dwarfs, or Cinderella waiting for the prince.
Danielle always loved dialogue and in elementary school began writing plays and short stories. This is when she began to understand she could not only bring her fantastical world to life for herself, but she could enchant others as well. And so she wrote. She wrote and wrote and wrote.
Sadly the first piece she ever sent out for publication of any sort was a letter to the editor of The Home News Tribune. It was a piece thanking the first responders for their bravery and selflessness on Sept 11th. It was chosen as letter of the week.
In 2007 Danielle collaborated with Charlotte Doreen Small to write songs for her CD More. Danielle wrote the lyrics for Take My Hand, and Goodbye, while Charlotte contributed the melody.
In October 2011 Danielle’s debut novel For Always was released. She Has since released Heart Waves and the second book in the Heart Waves series, Breaking Waves.
Danielle graduated from Farleigh Dickinson University with honors, and currently lives in New Jersey with her husband and three children.
