Review ~ Love's Second Chance (Second Chances #1) by L.P. Dover

Love's Second Chance (Second Chances, #1)Paperback purchased by myself from Createspace

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?

My Opinion

Weirdly this is the first book in this series but the last I read. They are standalones so it doesn't matter as much but there was a definite cross-over in slight parts of the characters' stories. I have read every book released in this series and I noticed a big improvement throughout the series in the author's writing. I'm not saying the first two books were no good as I still loved them but the 3rd book Meant for Me and the 4th Fighting for Love are still my favourite so far. There is a lot more of an emotional connection in these books and they are longer which is always good.

It was nice to hear about Korinne's story even though I only learnt about her in book two. Once again the romance was standard but it was solid in development and everything felt believable and realistic. I love the emotion the author puts into her books and I find them really easy to connect with. I have lost track of time while reading every one of her books and I don't want them to end by the time I get to he end.

I'm going to keep this review short as I feel I'll just be repeating myself from previous reviews of this series but they are definitely great books if you're looking for emotional romances!
