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. :(

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.

Charming story and engaging reader

This charming story, a lovely introduction to Kristi Rose's Coming Home series, a collection of romantic short stories, features original and likable characters, a fast-moving plot, and an engaging performance by Suzanne Barbetta. Recommended!

I Loved This Short Story ❤❤

I really love this short story; Second Chances," written by Kristi Rose. She put love, romance and heart in such a little amount of time, that it gave me goosebumps. At no time did I feel that the story was rushed or hurried. This was my 1st time hearing from this narrator Suzanne Barbetta and she was no disappointment. She proved to be very professional in her vocal storytelling, and she has a very fluent range of voice tones. I recommend this audiobook to others and I definitely will look for other books by both the author and narrator. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer
