Love’s Second Chance
Korinne Anders had it all. She had the perfect job, the perfect house, and the perfect husband. When tragedy strikes, her world takes a devastating turn. Six months after losing her husband to a car accident, Korinne vows it to herself never to love again. If she doesn’t allow another man in her heart, then there’s no reason for her to feel the pain of loss. This plan seems to work, but is put to the test when Korinne’s best friend can’t stand to see her suffering any longer.
Korinne’s long-time friend, Jenna Perry, has an idea and it involves helping her friend find the spark of life in her soul no matter what it takes. Korinne didn’t know that Jenna’s plan meant bringing back a past love, a second chance with the man that Korinne had to leave in college, but always kept a place for in her heart.
When Galen Matthews learns of Korinne’s loss and that she’s finally moved back home, he wants nothing more than to be there for her. The love he felt for Korinne years ago has never left him, and now he’s given a second chance to not only mend her heart of her loss, but to also continue the love they shared in the past. Will his love and determination make her strong enough to give fate a second chance, or will her fear of losing another love make her run away?
What will Korinne do when she’s faced with a love so powerful that no matter what she does there’s nowhere to run from it?
Jenna swallowed hard and her eyes began to water. Something was wrong and I could feel it in my blood. My heart began to beat rapidly while the feeling of doom started to take presence in my chest, making it tight and hard to breathe. What the hell happened to make Jenna look like that and to show up on my doorstep?
“I’ve been trying to call you,” Jenna choked out on a sob. “Why didn’t you answer?”
I stood there, shocked for a second, but then I quickly said, “I was sick and hadn’t felt well all last night and today. My phone died sometime this afternoon while I’ve been asleep. I can tell something’s wrong, Jenna, so you need to tell me, now.”
Stepping back, I motioned for her to come inside and she followed. Growing more impatient with each passing second, I glared at her waiting on the news to come. Jenna’s voice quivered when she spoke, “Korinne, there’s been an accident.” Thoughts of Galen passed through my mind and of all the possibilities of what could be wrong, none of which happened to be good. If he wasn’t here, then where was he? Not knowing what to do or say, I stood there motionless while the time floated by in slow motion, waiting on the fatal words to leave Jenna’s mouth.
This is pretty much how I would describe this story. It is a beautiful romance that is made of dreams that takes your heart somewhere special and cradles it in fluffy things and gentle kisses. It is what a romance should be… NO! It is what everybody needs and most especially people who lost their faith in still living their life when an awful tragedy strikes.
This story is told from a H/h multiple POV and round out the story telling. It is perfect in that because this story is Second Chance at Love for both of the characters.
Korinne is newly widow who finally returns to her city after licking her wounds for 6 months after a tragic car accident takes her husband away from her. She is a broken down woman who can’t take her past and goes as far as renting a different home to stay than the one she shared with her husband. She has quit her job after being a successful house designer and just lives day by day… no no no not living… just existing… UNTIL hurricane that is her BFF takes her to a party for her Second Chance at living and love.
Galen is a successful architect and owner of Architecture Firm that he inherited from his father… but when his little brother’s wife brings his old love he sets everything aside to win his old College Love back.
This story is like a huge PUN for Second Chances and I love it. It is a cozy, feel good story with some tragedy and miracles mixed in. It is good friends and love that takes you to new places. So pick up this book when you are in need of some good old fashioned love story that is full of hope. OOOOh and have I mentioned HOT STEAMING SEX yet?!?!?!?!?! Yep plenty of that too!
This girl truly enjoyed this story and can not wait to read more of the series to find out who ELSE will get their chance at HEA.
