Goodreads Synopsis: 

Tess is burdened with a responsibility she’s not quite sure she can handle, and Ryan is determined to save her from it—if she ever stops pushing him away—in this sexy follow-up to Right Where You Are, the first new adult novel in the captivating Second Chances series.

Tess is a lot of things. Strong. Independent. Determined. Completely overwhelmed by the responsibilities of being her little brother’s caretaker. But she can handle it. She has to. Because there’s no way in hell she’s letting anyone else raise Noah.

Ryan’s happy with a life on cruise control. He has no intention of tying himself down. That road only leads to heartbreak, a lesson he learned the hard way when he was fifteen. So why can’t he stay away from the one woman who broke his heart?

Tess knows exactly why Ryan keeps popping up right when she needs the most help: He’s got a hero complex big enough to save Cinderella. But Tess isn’t that girl, and she refuses to let him be part of her life. Not even when Noah takes a liking to him. Not even when they kind of, maybe, hook up.

Not even when she starts to fall for him…


*I was provided an eARC by Pocket Star via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

First of all let me tell you, this book has some mature content so if you’re too young or you don’t feel comfortable about that this is not for you.

As soon as I found out that this books was on NetGalley I knew I had to request it. I absolutely loved the first book so I knew that I wanted to read this one so I was quite happy when I receive the e-mail telling me that my request had been accepted. Now let me tell you, I think I loved this book even more than the first one. I loved it so much that I read it in one sitting. I really like the characters. I already knew Ryan because he is Seth best friend and he helped Seth in the first book so I knew I would love him. I also loved Tess and how she cared so much about her 3 year-old (almost 4 😀 ) brother, Noah. The thing that I really loved how Ryan and Tess still cared for each other after 7 years of being apart. Tess story life was just heart-breaking. She goes from someone who has mostly nothing (well she had Ryan) to someone who was everything to someone who has nothing again (she has Noah) and all mostly because of her father’s actions. The characters chemistry was great and, as much it hurts to say this, I liked their relationship more that Seth and Avery’s relationship. This book had everything. I loved the plot and how Tess was doing everything to keep Noah, I loved the characters (with the exception of her father) and I loved the ending. It was just too cute.

Overall, this was a great book. This is my second L. E. Bross book but I can already tell you that I plan to read more. If you’re looking for a new adult book to read you should give this one a try, but only after you read Right Where You Are.


4.5 stars

  1. So, I just wrote my review this afternoon, and I said most of what you said!!! Yes, it might help that we were talking the whole time we were both reading it :P! I liked this one better too, and I liked their relationship more than Seth and Avery’s, the kid helped, but their history was just always palpable. I just wanted a lot more pages of it
