Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Lauren Blakely comes a second-chance romance that'll make your heart feel good! Performed by Zachary Webber and Emma Wilder! 

I have a big plan for my career and it most certainly doesn’t involve my ex. AKA my first love. 

It definitely doesn’t entail working with him every day on a brand-new project for my jewelry line. 

And it absolutely doesn’t include falling for the man all over again. 

But the trouble is, he’s kind, charming, and so damn smart. Not to mention easy on the eyes. And thoughtful, too.

Also, he wants to get to know me again. To take me out for coffee, to chat on the phone, to go to museums. 

It’s a dizzying, delicious courtship, but I don’t know if my heart can handle this from the man who broke it to pieces once upon a time....

Or am I willing to risk everything for a second chance at first love?

Author’s Note: The Second Chance Plan was previously titled Caught Up in Us (which is no longer available). The Second Chance Plan is a fresh new take on that second chance romance, with a reimagined plot and vastly expanded characterizations. This new version with brand-new narration contains more than 65% new material. I hope you enjoy this new edition of my first romance novel!

I love second chance romance! This book is heartwarming, sweet, sexy and funny all in one.
I read the original version of this book and have to say the re-imagined version was much smoother and was easy to get lost in. Kat & Bryan had chemistry and from the very beginning you could feel their connection even all these years later. I love the past and present scenes so you get to know them then and now also. The ending was a perfect HEA <3 Really enjoyed this one!

Narration was perfect because Zachary Webber & Emma Wilder are great at what they do!

A Second Chance at Love

I am always a fan of second chance romances that involve childhood sweethearts. Kat and Bryan's story really pulled on my heartstrings and I enjoyed the slow burn between them as they reconnected. The story played out fairly predictably, but it didn't take away from the emotions and feelings it elicited. I wasn't a huge fan of the reason for the separation, but given that Kat was just 18 at the time, the 5 year absence made sense and helped each of them grow and mature. Bryan did some nice groveling at the end too, so that softened some of the hurt ;)

The narration by Emma Wilder and Zachary Webber was wonderful. Emma Wilder really shined as Kat and I found her male and female voices very believable and distinct. Though not a true duet narration, I loved that the text messages were done with Webber reading Bryan's texts and Wilder reading Kat's. I really enjoyed this updated version of Kat and Bryan's story!

Overall 4 stars
Performance 5 stars
Story 3.5-4 stars

Please Note: The Second Chance Plan is a re-imagining and expanded version of Lauren Blakely's Caught Up in Us.

Second chances

This reinvention of the Caught Up in Love series by Lauren Blakely has my attention! I am loving these couples, each their own trope and so much fun! Kat is in college, almost ready to graduate and has to do a semester of class with a mentor. Working on her jewelry business, this could take her to the next level, until she finds out who her mentor is. What is the chance it's her old boyfriend Bryan? She doesn't want to work with him, but if she wants the grade she will have to. Now Bryan is doing what he can to get that spark back. It's not hard, but there is something that has kept them apart and until it is resolved, their newly forming relationship may be doomed! This story is cleverly written with flashbacks, letting us live through the past and piece together the different parts of their history. Blakely does this so well, the story easily flows with one narrator giving us the past and the other the present. It's a wonderful listen, with obstacles to overcome and a second chance at first love!

Narration by Zachary Webber and Emma Wilder is guaranteed entertainment without even knowing the book, but when they perform a Lauren Blakely book, we know it's going to be phenomenal. Each with their own time and point of view, these two bring to life the past and present.

⭐️⭐️ Second chance awesomeness! ⭐️⭐️

Second chance romances are my jam! Add to that Lauren Blakely’s magic romance touch and some amazing narration and I was in audio heaven!

Once again Lauren Blakely brings her romance A-game and gives us a swoony, steamy, and fun story to love and get lost in. Bryan and Kat are freaking adorable and their chemistry was everything for this story. Loved watching their romance bloom and grow.

Narration was performed by Zachary Webber and Emma Wilder and that’s literary all you need to know because these two equal amazing audios alone and more so as a team! 5 stars.

Second Chance is wonderful

I'm really glad that Lauren rewrote this story giving it a second chance. It's told in the views of what happened five years ago from Bryan and present day from Kat. The narrations from Zachary Weber and Emma Wilder make it even better.

Masterfully Remastered!

I listened to this book as the original “Caught Up In Us.” I loved it then and I think it’s even better now! Wonderfully narrated by Zachary Webber and Emma Wilder.

New dialogue and stellar performances on old story

A successful refresh of on of the author’s earlier stories. I enjoyed the original but this version is even better. These stories were pre Clay and Julia but the characters crop up in later books. Well worth a listen.

Second Chance to Love!

The Second Chance Plan is an extended and updated edition of Caught Up in Us. I haven't read the previous edition. This is the third book in the Caught Up in Love Series. Kat and Bryn's story is a fun and sexy second chance to love. The back and forth, past to present, is well done and easy to follow. Zachary Webber and Emma Wilder did a great reading of this story. I enjoyed it.

Touching, Sweet and Steamy Romance!

This was my very first Blakely romance and I have been a fan of her work ever since. Now she has revamped this sweet and sexy second chance romance, and it is even better! Kat and Bryan meet unexpectedly 5 years after their heartbreaking split. Kat is trying to complete her masters program to help her make her jewelry business more successful when her professor assigns Bryan as her mentor. They agree to make a fresh start and work together affably. Neither has forgotten the other, and the hidden reasons for their split prevent them from moving on. As they spend more time together, learning who they are today, it renews their attraction to each other and reignites the fiery chemistry that never left. I love the way this was told in flashback sequence, and told in both Kat and Bryan's pov. What makes this story even more enjoyable is the wonderful narration by Zachary Webber, and Emma Wilder. They added so much personality to this story making Bryan and Kat come alive. I was totally lost in this world as they made me feel all the doubt, heartache, joy, and passion of this story. They really made this touching, sweet and steamy romance even better!

Loved it

If you are looking for a fast, spicy hot read then The Second Chance Plan is the book for you. This is an extended and updated edition of Caught Up In Us.  
 
This is Kat Harper and Bryan Leighton’s story and is an entertaining read that had me invested from the first to the last chapter. A second chance at love story and one that ticked the boxes for me. As I have come to expect from Ms. Blakely, the story was funny with characters you cannot help but fall for and who are easy to relate too..
 
The chemistry between Kat and Bryan sizzles and I was so invested with their story that I couldn’t put it down. There is history between them and as the intensity of their current feelings builds slowly it build until it almost bursts into flames which I found captivating.
 
Can they move on from the past and in turn find the happiness that has alluded them or will it all come crashing down again?
 
One click and find out.
