Review: That Second Chance by Meghan Quinn

Posted on

USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn delivers a smart and cheeky romance about love’s power to lift hearts…and curses.

I had all I’d ever needed—but in the blink of an eye, everything changed.

It only took one rowdy night with my brothers to flip my world upside down. One disrespectful remark, and a mystical old woman cursed us with lonely, loveless lives. “Yeah, right,” I thought. I had no idea.

Word spreads quickly in a town like mine; rumors about that night soon made us the most eligible yet untouchable bachelors in Port Snow, Maine.

It would have stayed that way if Ren Winters, the new girl in town, hadn’t crashed into my life. Brave, beautiful, and smart—her vivacious thirst for a fresh start gives me hope for one of my own. Every moment I spend with her brings a new color to my world.

I want her. I need her. But I can’t let myself have her. I can’t risk her getting hurt.

Everyone wishes for that second chance…but can I open myself up again?

“I’ll put everything on the line to try for her.”

“In just a few months, Ren has rocked me to my very core, burying herself deep within my bone marrow. And there’s no doubt in my mind that when I walk away, she’s going to stay there for a very long time.”

“I’m desperate for her. I want to hold her hand, I want to be her man. I want to take her into my arms and know that nothing is ever going to happen to her, that she’s going to be mine forever.”

This. Book. Boy did it ever tick off all of the marks. For starters, the moment I read this synopsis and laid my eyes on the cover, I just knew I had to get my hands on this bad boy. And let me tell you, I am super glad that I did.

That Second Chance is the first book in the Getting Lucky Series from Meghan Quinn. This story is everything I’m looking for in a second chance romance. You’ve got great characters that have been broken by their pasts. You’ve got an amazing family, that just pulls you in and makes you apart of their life whether you’re ready for it or not. Add in some explosive chemistry and a friendship that you know in your heart of hearts is destined for more, and let me tell you, you’ve got all the makings for a romance that is just going to knock your socks off.

Griffin and Ren won me over from their very first encounter. The sparks were there and boy were they ever off the charts. Neither one of them was looking for love. Ren was looking for a fresh start and Griffin was just going through the motions of life. But, the more time that these two spent together, the harder it was to stay away. Griffin was everything that Ren was looking for. And Ren brought light and happiness into Griffin’s world. She reminded him what is was like to live his life again. Sure, Griffin wasn’t perfect. Heck, there was a few times, I wanted to reach into my kindle and knock some sense into him. But, I got it. I really did. I understood why he was so afraid and why he let fear run his life. I could only hope that he would figure things out before he lost the one thing that made his life brighter….

That Second Chance is a sweet and sexy second chance romance that is sure to leave you with all the feels. Ren and Griffin’s story is heartwarming and is filled with so many swoon-worthy moments. The characters are so likable and easy to connect with. They suck you into their story and leave you just dying for more. I loved the ups and downs, the embarrassing moments and the ones that made you swoon. The moments that tugged at my heart and left me hoping for a happily ever after….And while Ren & Griffin’s story does wrap up in That Second Chance, the ending perfectly sets things up for the next book in the series and will leave you seriously salivating for more!

I hope you’ll pick up That Second Chance and fall in love with Ren & Griffin just as I have.
