Will the past keep them apart…
High-powered attorney Luke Braden knows that perfection only comes once in a lifetime, and for him it came and went in the form of his college girlfriend, Brenna Morgan. Circumstances beyond his control separated them before, but now that she’s back in Boston, Luke won’t let her slip away again.
…or give them a second chance at love?
For Brenna Morgan, returning home is the very last thing she wants, especially when it means facing the man who once became her salvation—and then dumped her at the first sign of trouble. But Luke is determined to make up for his past mistakes, and Brenna finds herself weakening against him. A decade of deceit lies between them, and he’ll have to fight if he wants to keep his second chance at love.
Second Chances by Rita Oberlies was such a cute read! The characters were absolutely wonderful, the plot was really cute, and the romance was pretty darn hot.
I loved the banter between all the characters, especially Luke and Brenna. All the time Brenna spent at her new job was too great – Harper was absolutely hilarious.
My one complaint about it would be that at first the story was a bit confusing with people calling each other by both their first and last names. It was a bit hard to keep straight. I also wish a little more of the characters past had been told – there was a lot I just kept waiting to hear about and never really did.
The characters were the best part of the book. They all had their different flaws and were super real. Brenna and Luke were so great together and I loved watching their story grow as the book went on. I loved Tess too – she was great.
Overall this was a pretty good read. It was fast paced and I breezed through it in just a few hours. A great read for anyone looking for a cute contemporary romance.
