Revel (Second Chance Romance, #1)
eBook downloaded for free via Amazon.

Release Date: May 7th 2016

Publisher: Self-published

Declan DeGraff is old money, turned no money, turned new money. 

He's fresh off the deal of the decade; he's just sold his tech firm for over two billion dollars and he should be on top of the world. 

But he's still missing what he lost, long ago. And every time success comes his way, he's reminded of how he would trade it all to have her back again. 

Charlotte Sanders is running from the past. Again. 

Years ago she fell deeply in love with the last man she should have allowed into her heart and near her body. After a summer of passion, he ended it abruptly, tearing Charlotte apart and making her swear off ever letting anyone in again. 

But now she's come back to the city where it all happened, Charleston, South Carolina, determined to find answers to the questions he never wanted her to ask. 

A chance encounter takes them right back to where they started. But can they get past the secrets they’re keeping? Or are they destined to repeat the mistakes of a past they’re both desperate to forget? 

Previously published under the serial episodes WILD, REVEL, and TAMED. This edition includes an epilogue not previously published.

My Opinion

This was an okay read. It started off strong, but my attention did lessen as the book moved on until I skimmed the end.

Revel is a second chance romance about Declan and Charlotte who run into each other after ten years apart. Things between them started off interesting, and I wanted to know what had split them up and why there were such strong emotions. However, while the book started off well, I found the plot to be too similar all of the way through. Things moved at a fast pace, which didn't really allow for much of a connection with the characters to be formed. The same thing just seemed to happen over and over ... it all felt very two dimensional without much depth.

Overall it was an okay read. It was quick and easy, but I struggled to connect with it emotionally.
