Pleasantly Surprised

I really enjoyed this story. It was a very short read that I would have loved to be longer. But, still it was a full story. I loved the characters. Lorelei's character cracked me up. I loved her sarcasm. Some might not like her character or think she was too bitter or sarcastic, but considering what she'd been through, I thought she was perfect. And, I wanted to not like Cole, but I couldn't. He was remorseful, young, and dumb, and felt really bad about what had happened. Now that they are adults, I totally wanted to see what happened between them.

I listened to the audio version of this book. The narrator, Suzanne Barbetta, did a great job! She really brought the characters and story to life. This book was an ARC and, I'm so happy I chose to read and review it. I'm always on the lookout for my next great read or listen!

Short, sweet romance

Second Chances was a short, sweet romance. Although it was short, the story was complete and fun. The characters were real, funny, and sarcastic. The narrator did a good job separating the characters and giving them their own voices.

Wanted More Cole and Lorelei

Narration - Suzanne Barbetta - Pretty Good.

Oh, how I wanted more of this book. Perhaps short stories aren't my thing, because they always leave me wanting.

This story has so much potential to be a full novel. I loved the whole storyline between Lorelei and Cole, but just wanted more. All the sudden, it was over. :(

Second Chances: A Small Town Short Story

This is a short SWEET novel, about forgiveness and love re-found after many years. The story flowed smoothly and I liked it.

Cute, but not for me.

What did you like best about Second Chances? What did you like least?

The book was cute, well written but to slow for me. Narration did good, very true to the book with the Southern draw.

If you’ve listened to books by Kristi Rose before, how does this one compare?

Never listen to Kristi Rose before.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narration seemed to slow. The pace could of made a huge impact on the likability of the book.

Quick fun read

--I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

I like short books in between my long listens, and this was the perfect length. The character development was good, the story of Lorelei and Cole's history was explained and their chemistry was very apparent. I loved the way that Cole's passion for football was integrated into the Lor's gameday challenge. Though I would have like the book to be a little longer and go into a few more memories and exploration of their new life, I would definitely recommend this book.

Suzanne Barbetta did a wonderful job with the narration.
