What won’t he do for a second chance?
Former model Kelly Hurley has finally put the ashes of the past behind her. After a passionate but turbulent marriage to rock star Vaughan Hurley that ended in heartbreak and divorce, Kelly rebuilt her life in Portland, where she settled so their two young daughters could be close to their father. Just not so close Kelly couldn’t truly make her own way without interference from the man who shattered her heart. Now Kelly’s finally ready to move on, and she’s planning to marry another man.
But not if Vaughan has anything to say about it.
Vaughan knows he was a fool all those years ago. A young, selfish-and prideful-fool. Even as he buried himself in the fast, decadent rock-star lifestyle, he could never drown out the memory of Kelly’s beauty and love. Or the sweet, searing heat whenever they touched. For years, he’s had to deal with the pain of seeing her only because of their daughters, but it was never enough. Now Vaughan must prove that he’s the only man Kelly needs, before he loses her for good. And there’s only one way to do it .
Review [possible spoilers]:
I haven’t read the previous two books in this series but I was able to follow this story with no problems and fall in love with the Hurley family. I really loved this book. There’s something incredible appealing about second chances. I can honestly say it’s hard for me to review this book, because I can relate to part of it. My parents got divorced when I was 6, they never got back together because my mom moved on and that’s totally ok because they were kind of awful together. I can understand that sometimes great things happen to people at the wrong moments, sometimes we’re just not ready to appreciate it, to cherish it. That was my dad’s case and that’s probably why I understand all the background of this book and why I was moved by it.
Lauren Dane wrote a real touching story. I really loved Kelly, her relationship with her daughters and I liked that Vaughan was determined to do everything to get his family back. The only but here is that, from my point of view, Kelly fell into the relationship a little fast even though she made him work to prove that he changed. I will probably go back to read the first two books in this series and I would love to read a book about Kelly’s best friend, Stacey!
I received a copy of this book for free, through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
