Shayna_Gier's review
What I Loved:

I loved the premise of this story the most. It's fairly typical as far as romance story-lines go, but despite that it just sounds so very sweet and touching. Beyond the premise, I also loved the way Krista kept the story amusing, with the characters doing something new, or in some cases thinking through their thoughts, in practically every sentence.

Also, the cover art is gorgeous!
What I Didn't Like:

Clichés, clichés, clichés. I said I loved the premise, and I do, but everything from Nicholas to the sex scenes, especially including Dana's thoughts, are so cliché! This is a short story, and I get that, really I do, but it would have been wonderful to have the same story, told in the same space, with unique descriptions and content. To be fair, there is a rather original twist to the plot near the end of the book, but it just wasn't enough to make up for all the clichés throughout.
My Overall Review

(3 of 5 Stars) A Short, Quick Read

Second Chances is the perfect book to pick up on a rainy day where you just want a good story. It's a short, quick read that would guarantee you still had time to complete your litany of daily chores. This, and the premise of the story, are its strongest points. It is definitely for a mature woman, though I didn't think the sex scenes were all that steamy. Which is a bit disappointing since the character's thoughts led one to think a steamier scene was coming.

Not a bad read at all. I didn't see any glaring errors or anything like that. It just seemed to lack the "wow" factor that I was looking for.
