Reading Challenges: 2019 Tackle My TBR Challenge
But it only took one rowdy night with my brothers to flip my world upside down. One unlucky encounter saddled us with a family curse and the promise of doomed relationships. I laughed it off immediately. “Yeah, right,” I thought. “A love curse. Ha!”
Boy, was I wrong.
Word spreads quickly in a town like mine; rumors about that night soon made us the most eligible yet untouchable bachelors in Port Snow, Maine. As a subject of endless gossip and speculation, I could kiss my dating life goodbye.
It would have stayed that way if Ren Winters, the new girl in town, hadn’t crashed into my life. Brave, beautiful, and smart—her vivacious thirst for a fresh start has given me hope that maybe, just maybe, I can have one too.
Everyone wishes for that second chance... but could this really be mine?

In Review: My Thoughts
Y’all, how in the world did I let a second chance romance with a small town setting from one of my favorite authors sit and languish on my shelves for over two months? I’m so disappointed in myself. I am not, however, disappointed in That Second Chance. Holy cow, this book. It did SO MANY THINGS to my heart. It just might be my new favorite Meghan Quinn book. I mean, if I played favorites.
That Second Chance grabbed me from the first few pages and didn’t let go. I love a good prologue and Meghan knocked this one out of the park. There was no stopping once I got that little taste. I couldn’t get enough of Griffin or Ren. Don’t even get me started on the secondary characters. I’m so glad this series is set up to give each of Griffin’s brothers their own books. I’m so greedy for all their stories.
Griffin’s story tugged at my heartstrings. The loss of his wife was palpable. As was his guilt over her passing, and his fear of the curse he’s convinced caused her death. I hated that he was going through all that because he was such a great guy. It was obvious how much he loved his brothers, and I really loved the dynamic between them. Not only did it knock me in the feels a couple times, but it also made me laugh out loud more than once.
I adored Ren, too. She’d been through her own challenges and moved to Port Snow to escape her past (and her overbearing parents). I appreciated her spunk and overall energy. I couldn’t have shipped her and Griffin any harder if I tried. It was obvious from their first meeting, no matter how unconventional, there was something between them. I enjoyed watching them become friends and then ultimately grow into more.
I loved everything about That Second Chance. It had everything I love about Meghan’s books. I laughed, cried, swooned and fanned myself more than once. (That lake scene, yo. So flipping hot.) It was wonderful to see some old favorite characters, while meeting new ones. But now I need Rogan’s story. It, too, is a second chance romance and I am here for it.
“Cupid hit my little brother with a giant moose. Oh, this is so wonderful.”
All I’m asking for is this one moment, this one instance, when I can forget about the past, forget about the curse, and life the life I wish I could have.
“I can’t even pinpoint a moment when I’ve wanted something as badly as I want your lips on mine.”
