Second Chance Romance

Being a first book in a series, I really don't expect too much, but I did expect this book to have more energy or emotion. It was OK. It seemed to have a slow start.

Kim and Bruce were in their mid to late 30's. She seemed the same to me as she did at 17. Kim came across as needy, insecure, and slightly desperate. I thought it was interesting that Bruce was always do happy to see Kim, yet holding on to some anger.

At 36 years old, I expected her to confront her parents with more passion then she showed. I definitely kept feeling like her behavior did not fit her age. I also did not understand why it took so long for the conversation to happen between Bruce and Kim.

I got the sense that Bruce was more exasperated with Kim than in love with her. Was he trying to make a connection because he was honorable and made a promise, or did he really love her and was over all of the miscommunication? Not really sure.

I didn't pick up much chemistry between them. Even with one of the final scenes I picked up nothing. No romance, no sexual tension, nothing. I am not sure if the end of this book was supposed to be an HEA, or an HFN.

A very short second chance romance. I listened to the audiobook and the narration was good. It was a female narrator who made me forget that the part of Bruce was not being read by a male. The narration also made Kim stand out as a needy, insecure woman. Not sure if that is how she was meant to be portrayed or not.
