Second Chances - Book 1 by Dale Mayer

Hooked on the Game by C.M. Owens

Everyone has secrets that define them, a past that has shaped them, and a game they play - whether they know it or not.

Despite the fact they live next door to each other, Kade and Raya have never made an effort to speak, until a wild party, four frat boys, and... a bulldozer.

Sterling Shore was supposed to be a new start for eighteen-year-old Raya Capperton. Everything was working out perfectly until her two roommates were expelled for a prank, leaving Raya with the house she couldn't afford on her own. Fate intervenes before she has the chance to find a new home, but she struggles to decide if it's divine luck or the devil's cruel sense of humor.

Twenty-one-year-old Kade Colton has his life planned out, and everything he does is an elaborate game to aid him with his future endeavors. Coming from money has made Kade's life easy, but he wants to build his own name - his own future. The thing he doesn't realize... when you only put forth superficial effort, you only acquire superficial friends.

Raya is torn between being amused or disturbed by Kade and his philosophy, but the drive behind his determination isn't what Raya expected. Little by little, her hatred fades and is replaced by emotions she never would have believed she could have for the rich jerk she desperately doesn't want to care about. Too bad you can't force yourself not to care.

The problem is... Kade's shiny name can't be tarnished, and Raya has a jaded tie she can't cut loose. Nothing about them can work, nothing about them makes sense, but nothing can seem to stop them from trying.

Second Chances Book 1 of 2 by Dale Mayer (not all your questions will be answered in book 1)

Go ahead. Take Charge of your life. Move forward...if you can...

Changing her future means letting go of her past. Karina heads to a weekend seminar and discovers the speaker is the person she needs to move on from. But she soon realizes bigger issues are facing her...

Brian has moved on, at least he'd believed he had... until he sees Karina in his audience...and realizes he's been lying to himself.

Passion pulls them together, love binds them together, but a revengeful enemy determines to keep the two apart...and destroy them both.

Enjoyed the story but Raya is way too defensive and is fixated on being poor and trailer trash. In contrast we see Kade's grandfather. He started with very little and created a positive life for himself. He doesn't wallow in sf pity the way Raya does. I enjoyed the story but it became hard to feel bad for her after a while.

2 free 100 page romance 'books'. First book of a college girl with secrets and an inferiority complex meets rich handsome college guy next door....... Adult language and sex situations. Second 'book' is of a last night of college amd a one night stand that becomes her blockage to a relationship til meeting him again after several years. AND a possibility of violent/stalking situation by a former college classmate. Cliffhanger ending to a creepy situation. Kissing and mention of sexual encounter. Easy simplistic language read.

Recommend: Raya and Kade are a cute couple, this book basically reinforces that we should get to know each other before we judge.
