Publisher's Summary

It's been almost a year since I've seen her, the only woman that's ever gotten under my skin, and made me wish I was a better man. More than just the washed up hockey player, turned sports journalist whose body is almost as scarred as his soul.

Layla Harper made me hope again. But life has a warped sense of humor, and I wasn't the only Bennett brother that fell for the girl with the caramel colored eyes.

The night I saw Travis with her I knew I'd lost, even before I had the chance to fight. Because one thing I never compete with my brother over is women. Even if the woman stole my breath, and my heart with one single kiss.

And damn, what a kiss it had been.

Now, she's pregnant with my brother's baby. A baby he wants nothing to do with. And he's asked me to clean up his mess.

What he doesn't know is that I'm in love with her, and I have no intention of offering her the deal he's laid out. I have a deal of my own. One that will finally make her mine.

    "Second chance romance will all the feels!"

    Omg this book. It brought out all the emotions. Once I started I couldn't put it down. Just when I thought I knew where the story was going...BAM!...another twist that kept me glued to the pages and anxious to find out what would actually happen.

    The first time Layla, a shy, bookish girl tryin hard to work her way to a better life than the one she's running from, meets Carter, a former professional hockey star who's trying to adjust to life off the ice, is when he saves her life, but fails to get her name before parting ways. Their second encounter happens at a club and there he gives her his number. But because of an honest mistake it's the wrong number and Carter loses hope of ever seeing her again. A year passes and Carter finds Layla in the last place he can imagine: living as his brother's roommate in his home. This time around a year has changed everything for them and along with ghosts of Layla's past, it could keep them apart for good.

    A fantastic story of second chances, fighting for love, and overcoming heartbreaking losses. I loved this book so much! Five well deserved stars and a bonus star to Carter for his awesome gift to Layla!

    Addison Spear is a new narrator to me. I wasn't too sure I liked her male voice, but after a few chapters in I was sucked in to the story and fully enjoyed the audiobook. Overall she did great just wasn't the biggest fan of her male voice at first. By the end I was thoroughly enjoying it. Definitely looking forward to more of her narrations.

    "Loved this!! Lots of feels!"

    I really CM Seabrook's narrative! Fast paced, addictive and very sweet! I love her heroes - they are oozing so much alphaness!!

    "Don't bother with this one"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I just felt the writing was sort of hollow...there wasn't much depth to the character development or the story itself and the narrator was just not great. I don't think this book had 4 or 5-star potential.


    Would you ever listen to anything by C.M. Seabrook and Carter Blake again?

    No, I wouldn't. This was my first book and it just wasn't impressed. It felt very amateurish.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Addison Spear?

    Someone with more expression and this is going to sounds terrible, but someone without that hint of a lisp. I had a hard time taking her seriously.


    What character would you cut from Second Draft?

    Travis, he was such a loser. But really, I didn't feel any attachment to any of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This was just a disappointment the whole way around, I'll avoid these authors and this narrator in the future. I actually had a little less than an hour left in the audiobook when I just gave up on it.
