That Second Chance by Meghan Quinn Review


* * * * * * * * * *


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?

I’m a huge Meghan Quinn fan, and her new Getting Lucky series has me bursting with excitement. Quinn’s captivating writing style – an engrossing blend of humor, heat and heart – never fails to draw me in, and she brought her fantastic sense of humor, some heart-tugging emotion and plenty of steam to the table in That Second Chance. Set in small-town, coastal Maine, Quinn introduces readers to the four Knightly brothers as she gives the oldest brother, Griffin, his much deserved, hard-earned happily ever after.

I don’t want to spoil a single thing about this story, so I’ll just say that Quinn gives the second chance romance trope her own stamp with an interesting and addictive spin. This couple has one heck of a charming meet-cute to kick off their slow-burning, friends-to-lovers romance. Griffin Knightly has been dealt the harshest of hands when it comes to love, and this man is carrying around more baggage than the Kardashian clan traipsing through LAX as they leave on vacation. Ren has had her own challenges, and she’s in Maine to start over. This couple’s chemistry crackled from the start, and while he tried hard to deny it, he ultimately couldn’t. The question then became, would he have the courage to deal with his past and face his fears to salvage his future?

That Second Chance was a charming, hard-fought, slow-burn second-chance romance, and I didn’t want to put it down. I was all-in with this couple from page one, and I devoured their story with a racing, hopeful heart. Quinn’s writing kept me engaged, entertained and grinning from cover-to-cover. Five smooches from me for That Second Chance by Meghan Quinn!
