Goodreads:  When Laila Lawrence becomes an orphan at twenty-three, the sudden loss unexpectedly introduces her to three glamorous cousins from New York who show up unannounced at her mother’s funeral. The three siblings are scions of the wealthy family from which Laila’s father had been estranged long before his own untimely demise ten years before.

Two years later, Laila has left behind her quiet life in Grosse Point, Michigan to move to New York City, landing her smack in the middle of her cousins’ decadent world. As the truth about why Laila’s parents became estranged from the family patriarch becomes clear, Laila grows ever more resolved to claim what’s rightfully hers. Caught between longing for the love of her family and her relentless pursuit of the lifestyle she feels she was unfairly denied, Laila finds herself reawakening a long dead family scandal—not to mention setting off several new ones—as she becomes further enmeshed in the lives and love affairs of her cousins. But will Laila ever, truly, belong in their world? Sly and sexy, She Regrets Nothing is a sharply observed and utterly seductive tale about family, fortune, and fate—and the dark side of wealth.

Kritters Thoughts:  Laila Lawrence has grown up a semi normal midwestern life.  When she becomes an orphan with the death of her mother she has three people enter her life quite abruptly and turned it upside down.  She learns of family that she never knew of and this if family that live in New York City and have a ton of money to live the best life.  

After a few misturns, she goes to live with these cousins and from the beginning the reader wonders if this was a good decision at all!  You can see this life like a tidal wave completely overwhelm her and then maybe she gets her feet on the ground and then another wave takes her out.  There were a few moments where I may have rolled my eyes because I think it went a little overboard, but overall I loved the story.  

This was a completely character driven book.  If you can't appreciate some crazy people than this book will drive you nuts.  I like character antics and don't mind if it is character on character drama instead of major plot, so I liked this one.  I have to admit to letting out an audible gasp when something really throws all the characters for a loop - it was so good!

If you are a fan of rich people problems, this is the perfect book for you.  If you like major character stories, then you should pick up this book next.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
