I am a sucker for 2nd chance romance reads and this is one that will get your attention immediately for it is a killer of a 2nd chance romance and with a love triangle to boot. This story will have you ask the “What if” question like a million times while reading this story. What if I..What if she..What if he…What if they…Im serious, I totally did that up until about the very end. That is how good this story gets you involved in the characters’ lives.
What if you had a chance to start your life all over and get to rewrite your mistake? All by horrible accident and get to rewrite those bad things and start over from scratch and get to make new memories with the right person? Im sure your asking why I would even be saying this but this is because one of the main characters is faced with this – Lara’s life was fading fast , she and Luke were fighting and then suddenly one night changes everything. Life is upended and changes are made in a fast and quick matter. Life is done over in a re-do and it’s the only way she can reclaim any happiness is by setting out to make it work for her.
This is a love story that involves two men, Luke and Grayson. One is the ex-boyfriend and one is the best friend who wants to be more. When the near death accident happens, both men try to fight for the love of Lara but do it in a different way. Some of it is underhanded and manipulative all to get the hand of the woman in the center of this man’s game. Last Chance is full of twists and turns that lead to some pretty epic scenes in this story with Lara and Luke. There is a villain in this story and there is, in my opinion, someone who could be considered a villain too. Not mister nice guy---I swear, there were times I got really angry and wanted to stomp on my kindle a few times but I refrained from doing it. The mind games really will get you going, and you will chose a side, which is what I did. I tried not to but in the end, I came to be for #TEAMLUKE. Oh I will be the first to say he isn’t perfect and boy he could drive a person nutty but he loved Lara with an intensity and the 2nd chance they got was unbelievable. This story will have you in tears, will have you in anger and will have you grateful for being alive and for 2nd chances. You will feel a range of emotions in the story so buckle up and get ready to go on a journey.
My rating: 4.5 stars ****
