This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

In this hot, new, angsty romance from USA Today best-selling author BJ Harvey, the once-burned, forever-commitment-shy best friend from One Shot faces her own moral dilemma of the heart.  

When life gives me lemons, I always make lemonade. Living every day like it could be my last, I'm content with the choices I've made and do so unapologetically. With a relationship that makes me happy and a job I love, life is good. 

But when the man I've just agreed to marry has his estranged wife and four-year-old daughter turn up on his doorstep, I'm not the only one reevaluating things. He didn’t plan for that - and I didn’t plan for my childhood sweetheart to return, wanting me back.   

Sometimes lemons can be sour, sometimes they can be sweet, and sometimes, all it takes is a second chance to make things right again. You just need to get that second chance in the first place.

okay

This is my first read from this author. I purchased the audio because I follow Lance Greenfield. Because of that, I was disappointed. Lance only narrates the epilogue. The story was good. But because I prefer dual narration, I had a hard time feeling the love between the two main characters. I did enjoy it and will listen again to see if I feel the same way.

4.5 STARS

This is my first book narrated by Jennifer Mack and I have no complaints at all. She did a wonderful job performing as Gaby. Lance Greenfield only narrates the epilogue, but he is a pro and it was the sweetest thing to listen to him at the end of this audiobook.

I remember back when I read One Shot how Impressed I was with B.J. Harvey's writing. She made me understand the main characters despite them edging towards the morally questionable. I loved the side characters so much so I'm happy that I finally got to catch up.

Gaby was a sweet, sassy woman with relationship-phobia. It's usually the men who don't want to get settles but Gaby's heart was broken by her high school sweetheart two days before their marriage. She vowed back then to never open herself up to that kind of hurt anymore.

I suppose if anyone could break down these guards then it is Bruno. He is the quiet, a little brooding type who is insanely private. It's that character trait that eventually gets him in trouble - he too has a past and it's hard for him to share.

Gaby and Bruno are perfect for each other and there is no doubt that they belong together. At first Gaby's instinct is to run but Bruno's patience and determination, his good heart, the way he tears himself up for the woman he's fallen in love with pays off. Those are the reasons why Gaby can forgive Bruno's eff-up. I loved them so much together. They had an easy connection and their funny banter was the cherry on top.

I love how B.J. Harvey's writing makes you feel the angst yet with the interspersed humor it feels only half as heavy. There is some serious talent and I wish I had more time to read her books. I do have Drew's story waiting for me so I'll soon pick it up to get another dose of the Chances series!

Bruno captured my heart!

This is my second book by BJ Harvey and I couldn't wait for Gaby's story. I fell in love with her in One Shot as Kenzie's best friend. She is everything I would want in a best friend and more. Kind, funny, feisty and always there to lend an ear. But, under all of that Gaby's heart was broken. She is determined to never let anyone close enough to wreck her like her ex did. But in walks Bruno, all sweet and sexy with his sights locked on Gaby. What Gaby doesn't know is that Bruno has known heartbreak as well. Will Gaby let down her walls and give Bruno a shot at her heart or will the pain from her past derail their relationship before it even begins. Second Chance was a slow burn, emotional read about two people clearly destined to be together if they could simply let the other in to their heart completely. Jennifer Mack's narration is spot on as Gaby. if you are a fan of Lance Greenfield he narrates the epilogue.

Second Chance

I didn't love this book as much as I loved book 1 of the series. I did still enjoy the story however I felt the first 3/4 was a bit slow moving while the last 1/4 was over before I knew it. Bruno was everything you want in a hero and I fell hard for him.
