USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn delivers a smart and cheeky romance about love’s power to lift hearts . . . and curses.
It was supposed to be an innocent night, celebrating my brother’s birthday. Nothing was supposed to go wrong. We’d vowed to be on our best behavior after all . . .
But it only took one rowdy night with my brothers to flip my world upside down. One unlucky encounter saddled us with a family curse and the promise of doomed relationships. I laughed it off immediately. “Yeah, right,” I thought. “A love curse. Ha!”
Boy, was I wrong.
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. As a subject of endless gossip and speculation, I could kiss my dating life goodbye.
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 has given me hope that maybe, just maybe, I can have one too.
Everyone wishes for that second chance . . . but could this really be mine?
So much YES to That Second Chance! I haven’t read many books by Meghan Quinn, but I know sooo many that absolutely love her work. I was pretty eager to get my hands on this one since I’m such a fan of Montlake Romances. And this one completely exceeded all of my expectations out of the park.
I’ve been gravitating towards small town romances this year and the many that I’ve read have captivated my heart completely. Griffin and Ren absolutely stole mine, instantly.
Griffin .. my poor heart! Just the immense guilt he has dealt with after the sudden death of his wife. And he was constantly using the curse as a clutch to never truly be happy again. And then Ren comes crashing into his life and everything between them was just instant.
I loved everything about these two. It was a bit of a slow burn and it all just felt exactly right for their relationship. With Griffin being a bit of a knight in shining armor and this easy and laid back friendship forms between the both of them.
Ren was a heroine that I simply adored with going through an ordeal where she wanted a new start following that. She was so brave to move away from everything that was familiar. But she adapted to her new life effortlessly! She had her moments, but overall, I loved her character.
To me, this story had just the right amount of everything that I look for in a cozy contemporary romance. I loved the family dynamics with the Knightly brothers and am so looking forward to some of their stories.
I can’t recommend this book enough, it was such a great start to Meghan’s new series!
