A Lucky Second Chance Blog tour stop




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 fiancé 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?



A Lucky Second Chance had a good story line and plot that kept me interested throughout the story.

Emma came to her sense after her, then fiancé, beat her bad enough that she finally decided she had enough. She fled their home in Florida and returned home in Chicago to live with her brother until she could get her feet.  Shortly after she started her new job, she literally runs into Nathan. From the beginning they both have a very strong attraction to one another.

Like most Couples, both Emma and Nate bring their own baggage to the relationship. Emma struggles with her own insecurities about telling Nate about her abusive Ex, but after a twist that occurs while they are on a romantic getaway with one another she is forced to tell him.

Nate has issues of his own which he fails to tell Emma and really it throws a wrench in their relationship…...His ex tries rekindle her relationship with Nate and it makes Emma doubt his love for her. Can Emma and Nate trust their love for one another?
Guess you’ll have to read it J

This book definitely has a lot of twists and turns and made me want to find out what would happen next, I only had one problem…..I say if you are going to write a sex scene in a book at least make it HOT, some of the scenes had GREAT POTENTIAL but then they fizzled out quickly, aside of this issue (which is my personal taste) The book was great.

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.
