TBR reviewer: Shyla
Deeply wounded, Teegan, leaves town without looking back, and becomes involved in a abusive relationship she can’t seem to get out of. When she returns to her hometown ten years later to get her life back together she’s forced to face the fact that she’s still in love with Liam. Even though Liam feels the same, they have along way to go before they can start over.
Second Chances was a pleasant read, but I was unable to really get into the conflict that was happening. I found a lot of the incidents to be clichéd. IE. The woman Liam was very casually dating yelling at Teegan in a bar about having her sloppy seconds… really? I also found the constant hopping between the past and the present to be a bit off putting. The passages were longer than most flashbacks, and since I’d gotten the gist of how Liam and Teegan were in the past, I found them to be unnecessary.
Despite these issues the characters have a deep connection, and there’s something about a man being willing to stand beside a woman and reassure her through such a turbulent time that can’t disregarded. The sex between them is spicy, but the real focus is on the love that exists between these two.
