Eleven years ago, pro football player
Jake Fields fled from his boyfriend, Damian Grant, leaving
only a note. He gave up everything that made him happy in
order to try to please his father, to his regret. Now, his
father is dead and Damian shows up for the funeral. Will
Jake make a better choice this time, or will he spend the
rest of his life regretting yet another mistake?
Jake’s Regret featured a storyline I usually
enjoy, rekindled love, and a kind and forgiving hero,
Damian, so I expected to really like it. Unfortunately,
Jake came across as immature, selfish, and wishy-washy.
When Damian came for the funeral, their reconnection was
believable, but the ending struck me as too fast and perfect
to be true. While Jake’s Regret wasn’t quite
what I expected it to be, fans of angsty coming-out, love
rekindled, or interracial stories may like it.
