Second chances aren’t easy to come by but for Luke Landon and Owen West, sometimes the best things really do come back to you.
Luke Landon and Owen West already had a once upon a time. They burned hot back in college yet still managed to lose their way. It’s been fifteen years since they drifted apart and while a lot has since changed, they’ve discovered that some things still feel the same. While one calls it fate, the other dumb luck, second chances aren’t easy to come by. Putting the ignorance of youth and life’s baggage aside, they just might find that sometimes the best things really do come back to you.
When I pick up a book written by Ethan Day, I know it’s going to be something special. I love his snarky sense of humor and his characters are always well-written, interesting people. Since the blurb does an outstanding job at describing the story, so I won’t rehash it. Instead I thought I’d write about why I loved this book and why I highly recommend it.
Both Luke and Owen are well-written characters. They were together in college and when they broke up; they haven’t seen each other in fifteen years. When they do meet up again, sparks fly between them and they find themselves in the middle of rekindling their romance. I appreciated how both men were mature enough to communicate with each other. I’ve read so many books where the heroes don’t talk, so it’s refreshing to read about two heroes that do.
I loved these two men together and enjoyed watching them work to be into each others’ lives again. I also enjoyed the steamy, strong emotional and physical connection these two men had together. The story itself moves smoothly along and is paced perfectly. Just make sure you allow plenty of reading time before you start it, because once you do, you won’t be able to put it down until it’s finished!
Second Time Lucky is a sexy and addictive read that is filled with plenty of sweet, heartfelt moments as well as many laugh out loud moments too! I loved experiencing many different array of emotions while reading this book. It left me with a smile on my face and wish for more. Highly Recommended!
