***** ok added note.... there's a glossary at the end of the book explaining the Twinsday and the Siresday. Mr Lyons? No..... just no. Remove these as they sound stupid and look like spelling errors and put on proper words!!!! thank you *****
First let's clear up the only real issue I had, the days of the week. As an example: Twinsday and Siresday. I still don’t know what day was what as I was reading. Let’s say they are just plain confusing and had me rereading multiple times. I think it might have helped if the glossary preceded the story to assist here. If you pick this book up, please, go to the glossary first.
Okay with that off my chest, let’s meet the guys:
Remy Dwes is a 19 year old stripper who works at the nightclub, Matchmaker. Remy is looking for that special someone and is is extremely mature for his age. He has been though a lot and survived at such a young age. He has made a life for himself albeit a non-traditional lonely one.
35 year old Chance Whitaker is a successful editor who has sworn off “cheating younger men”. He has a dismal track record with men but yearns for “the one” to share quiet nights and a future with.
Dan Berringer is the 25 year old owner of Matchmakers, a friend of Remy’s, and matchmaker extraordinaire. Dan is my favorite character by far. He is that friend you can count on, has your back, and is kind and generous. We are left wondering about him and what went down with his ex, Bryan.
Matty, Remy’s horrid “best” friend. Matty is somewhat promiscuous. Oh who am I kidding, he is a whore that does not deserve Remy’s friendship. After what he does, let’s say that Remy is a better man than I by forgiving him and remaining friends.
Chance and Remey… Oh man, the title is way off base, there are so many chances here your head spins. However, you can’t help rooting for them and wishing they would get there act together.
The miscommunication and rampant assumptions take the angst to a new level. Oh and Chance - why is Remy apologizing to you for something horrific that happened to him?.
Second Chances is one of those books that elicits many emotions as you turn the page.
I am left with torn feelings about it. At the end of the day the connection between Chance and Remy, while far from healthy most of the time, works for them. These two have truly found their soulmates. Now they just need to get their heads out of their collective arse’s.
I won this book in a FB competition!
A 35 year old Book Editor and a 19 year old who works in the Sex Industry, seems like an unusual pairing, but thanks to the engaging writing skills of this author, he made it work.
It was a long and arduous journey to getting their HEA - both Chance and Remy didn't make it easy for themselves, or us, the readers. But on that journey, I fell in love with Remy, he was just so special and will remain with me for a long time.
As you have most probably gathered by now with the arduous journey comment, this storyline had angst. Lots and lots of it. But it also had lots of delicious sexy, but loving love to balance it out. But it wasn't always easy reading and one particular "event" left a sour taste in my mouth. For me, I didn't think the author handled it particularly well, almost glossed-it-over with another bombshell happening and that didn't sit right with me, so it cost him a 0.5* off my rating. Harsh maybe, but with the word building and expertly handled storyline, I just felt he missed an opportunity to help anyone who may have been in that situation themselves.
Having said that, I did enjoy reading this new author to me. I definitely want to read Dan's story to find out how he lost Bryan to another man......
P.s. Read the Glossary at the end of the book first - it will help to clear up some confusions when reading.
