What do you do when life doesn't go as planned?
Nobody plans to be abused. Emma Dunn certainly didn't. When life with her fiance takes a terrifying turn, she flees to her hometown of Chicago without looking back, and her brother Kevin takes her in. Life is slowly getting better for Emma, thanks in no small part to real-life Prince Charming, Nathan Weber. He sweeps her off her feet, almost literally, and dotes on her from day one.
But when the unexpected happens and their pasts catch up with them, can their fairy tale still have a happy ending?
"When I looked in the mirror, I saw a broken woman."
The way "A Lucky Second Chance" begins, pretty much sets the pace for the entire book. And let me tell you, it's a fast one full of secrets and plot twists.
The female lead character, Emma Dunn, is basically escaping from the sad reality her life had become. Leaving everything behind in Florida, she heads back home to Chicago, where her very hot and successful brother, Kevin (whom I had a crush on.. just saying) was going to help her out until she got back on her feet.
On her way to rebuilding her life back, Emma starts a new job Kevin got her. One afternoon, on her way out from work, she runs into (like, literally), Nathan Webber. Instantly, she felt a connection towards him and of course, an insane attraction. But then, with a hot guy like Nate? Who wouldn't? *wink*
A few events later, Emma and Nate begin the adventure they call a relationship.. because yeah, it's anything but boring.
"I'm just not used to somebody loving me like you do. I'm used to a whole different love that I figured out was never real."
Nate is a very romantic guy, always gentle and patient with Emma. You can tell right away that their feelings are very deep and genuine and that they really get to know each other.
"You're like an angel to me. You're the best thing that's come into my life."
"To the moon and back. I love you." - Nate
"My love for you is unconditional, Emma. You are my one and only true love."
"... my best friend, my lover, my soulmate, my everything." - Emma
Just when you think things are okay and slowing down in the book, queue the mini plot twist.
But hey, what can you expect when they both have their share of secrets?
"A Lucky Second Chance" is the type of book that has a lot of things going on. There isn't just "one problem" or "one bad guy," but several. To me, this is something that makes the general story line quite interesting. So yes, this is a good book.
"This just proved to me that anybody could have anything in life; you just need a lucky second chance."
Nathan turned into an alley, wrapped his arms around my waist, and gently pushed me backwards against the brick wall. He slid his hand up and pushed my hair aside out of my face, and gently grabbed my head, tilted it back, and locked his luscious lips to mine. He stood there kissing me as our tongues met, twirling inside our mouths. He was heavenly. Holy shit. God, he knew how to kiss. I loved the feel of his warm hand on my cheek and his other hand firmly grabbing my waist. My heart beat faster and faster as the kiss intensified, mesmerizing me. I took my hands and pushed him back softly and took a deep breath.
We both stood there for a few seconds and just stared at each other completely speechless. There it was again, that radiating feeling that just shook my body.
