Overview


Will the past keep them apart…

High-powered attorney Luke Braden knows that perfection only comes once in a lifetime, and for him it came and went in the form of his college girlfriend, Brenna Morgan. Circumstances beyond his control separated them before, but now that she’s back in Boston, Luke won’t let her slip away again.

…or give them a second chance at love?

For Brenna Morgan, returning home is the very last thing she wants, especially when it means facing the man who once became her salvation—and then dumped her at the first sign of trouble. But Luke is determined to make up for his past mistakes, and Brenna finds herself weakening against him. A decade of deceit lies between them, and he’ll have to fight if he wants to keep his second chance at love.

    Loved this book. It's a great renunion story with vivid characte

    Loved this book. It's a great renunion story with vivid characters and over the top chemistry. I loved seeing them fight through all the emotions and tragedies to come back together. Brenna's personal journey was uplifting and honest. I was drawn toward her from the beginning and wow Luke... ahhh. He's hot, sexy, strong and sensitive.

    What could you ask for more in a good contemporary romance? Can't wait for more Rita Oberlies' books.
    Great weekend read from a talented author.

    I found Second Changes to be a wonderfully fun and relaxing read

    I found Second Changes to be a wonderfully fun and relaxing read. Besides loving a good reunion romance, the story itself at some meat to it. It wasn't just "romance" but a great story of two people dealing with real life situations. The main character, Brenna was honest and I really enjoyed her personal journey through independence to having that and the man she loves.

    Luke was a very engaging hero. I just love him. He was strong and determined, but so caring and kind. While there were a lot of things these two people had to overcome and forgive, the story was told in such a way that I couldn't put the story down.

    Well drawn characters. Great story all around. I will be sure to look for this author again!

    This was a fun read. I'm a big fan of reunion romances and this

    This was a fun read. I'm a big fan of reunion romances and this hit the spot. The main character Brenna struggles to leave her past behind. She's ashamed of her family life and afraid to reveal a past mistake to her college boyfriend, Luke. After a difficult break up she moves away. When her life hits another bump she must move back home. Luke wants to win her back but she's afraid to trust him.

    The secondary characters try to get the romance back on track with mixed results. Overall this was a great pick for the holiday weekend.

    Second Chances was a sweet romance that leaves you feeling good.

    Second Chances was a sweet romance that leaves you feeling good. Brenna was a vulnerable heroine with a lousy home life. Luke comes from a life of privilege which doesn't prepare him to deal with Brenna's baggage. I'm not always a fan of the stereotypcial wealthy hero because sometimes they act obnoxious. That didn't happen here. While he falls hard twice for her, he faces an uphill battle trying to prove he deserves a second chance.

    One other thing I loved about this story was that Brenna didn't try to pretend she was polished. When she needed to get a job to support her grandmother she didn't mind taking a blue collar job for a construction company. She rolled with the punches throughout the book. Even at the end of the story when they're back together as a couple she makes it clear she's keeping her job because it makes her happy.

    Enjoyed!

    I really enjoyed this book. I liked how Brenna changed how she viewed Luke after coming back to Boston. I liked how Luke kept helping Brenna. I wasn't fond of him dating Kate, even if it wasn't serious. It was a good book and a definite re-read.

    Review: "Second Chances"by Rita Oberlies was a cute

    Review: "Second Chances"by Rita Oberlies was a cute, witty,
    complicated and hot romance story. It kept me continuing to turn the
    page being a fast paced read until the end. The story was of Luke
    Braden and Brenna Morgan who at one time had been sweethearts but
    something had happened and they were torn apart. The title of this novel
    is "Second Chances" and you will be finding out from the read
    if there will be any of this from these two people. You will find in
    some of this novel is a bit complicated in all the problems that this
    heroine went through but it was also witty and definitely delicious
    where you will soon see if these two people deserve a chance to get it
    right this second time. The characters were very well written with
    believable and realistic personalities. Brenna seemed to be like a very
    mixed up person who was very friendly, caring and even likable but OMG
    what all she had gone through and was still going was truly really
    something. Luke... was this 'high powered attorney'..who was sort of
    thought as a 'white knight' complex for Brenna. Now, I am sure you are
    asking at this point just what is "Second Chances" all
    about... and this is where I say you must pick up this good read to find
    out. Will this guy get this girl in the end? If you are in for a
    interesting, enjoyable and emotional ride then you have come to the
    right place..and I do recommend "Second Chances" to you.

    I've been reading Entangled's new line, Indulgence, with interes

    I've been reading Entangled's new line, Indulgence, with interest, and been pleased so far. Even if I didn't like the character(s) or the plot was shaky, the writing has been solid and the stories fun to read. This one, however. ... I think the incessant dialogue was supposed to be witty or something, but it came across more like a cross between "Who's on First" and those B&W student films where people smoke a lot and talk nonsense. The conversations were disjointed and jerky, and often referred to a "he" or a "she" who could have been any number of people. Overall, just a really annoying book to read. I'll stick with Indulgence, because their record is still quite positive, but I will avoid this author in the future. Oh, and note to author and copy editor: People are "who"s, not "that"s. "Someone WHO ..." "A woman WHO ..." They're not inanimate objects. I don't think it was correct once in the whole book.
