About The Book:
by Stacy M. Wray
Release: March 2, 2015
This is a love story that is told through Adelyn Winters’ and Trey Masterson’s POV and reflects the time they met in high school to the present day.
I’m in limbo. If you look close, you’ll see that I’m basically going through the motions. If you look even closer, you’ll see that I’m empty and frustrated as hell with my life.
And then it arrives. That four by six card that tells me ten years have gone by when I wasn’t paying attention. I’m paying attention now.
Pulling my dusty box of memories from the closet shelf, my index finger slowly sifts through the keepsakes that represent the aura of Trey Masterson. The boy who moved from Missouri to Vermont and swept me off my feet the first day of our sophomore year. The boy who I never thought I’d have a chance with but he only had eyes for me. The boy I fell in love with and never stopped.
When we see each other again at our high school reunion, every feeling I ever had for him bleeds from my heart and leaks into every cell of my existence, and I finally feel like I can breathe for the first time in years. I don’t quite get the same reaction from him. In fact, his reaction is downright…cold?
Never knowing the reason of our undoing after I went away to college, I just want some closure. But we can’t seem to carry on a conversation without sparking a slew of emotions - each word igniting all the hurt that’s been buried for ten years.
During the week of our stay in our small town in Vermont, we keep crossing paths but jealousy, bitterness and tragedy threaten to hinder any hopes of possibly rekindling the passion we once shared.

Adult Contemporary Romance, touching on YA/NA through flashbacks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Unclaimed Regrets by Stacy M. Wray is a second chance romance that will have you equal parts smiling and gnashing your teeth in frustration. The characters are so well written that you truly will want to throttle them at times. I love when an author can produce that kind of reaction out of me.
Adelyn and Trey met in high school and meet again at their ten year high school reunion. This story is told from both point of view and both in present day and in flashback to high school. We slowly learn what went wrong. Why they broke up after Adelyn left for college. What assumptions were made and what mistakes they continue to make now that they are face to face again after so long apart.
While this is a happily ever after story - the journey there is oftentimes painful and angst-ridden so prepare yourself for this gorgeous ride.
