Very nice love story about a drama teacher and an actor. As a drama teacher, I could really connect with the main character.

A second chance that will win your heart I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I admit I’m a sucker for second chances. I mean who doesn’t want to have one right? I know a bunch of people who have had their second chances and these stories always fascinate me. I’ve been planning to write about that as well. My family and close friends would be amazing sources of material for me. LOL That being said I had high expectations for Love’s Encore and I was NOT disappointed. Kathleen Ann Gallagher does a very good job at tackling delicate issues such as breast cancer. After all, it affects a woman’s self-image and self-esteem. Also she creates believable characters you care about and want to know more about their stories. And those stories are craftily woven by Ms. Gallagher. Speaking of characters, in Love's Encore you'll find some great ones and so realistic you feel like you know them. I for one totally related! Just like Sadie, I too have great friends and they have actually threatened to call the police in case I didn’t report back to them right after a recent date I had. They didn't know the poor guy very well and worried for my safety. However, I waited until I was back in my place on the next day to text them instead of sneaking into the bathroom of the hotel room like Sadie did. LOL In fact, there was one tiny detail in this book that I think wasn’t as good as it could have been; but then again it might be because I’m an erotic romance author. I’m sure a lot of people wouldn’t even notice or care. I felt the love scenes were a little off, a little rushed even. I don’t like spoilers but I’ll give you an example without giving away too much. The first time Sadie and Vince sleep together, the dialogue sounded stilted to me. First, because there was too much of it; second, the utterances were repetitive. For example, they said ‘I want you’ for times in two pages. But in reality, I don’t think there should have been so much talk. There could have been more actions and sensations, instead. But that may be just me. And in all fairness, writing a love scene is NOT easy. It’s tricky and the results often don’t please everyone. That’s why I didn’t rate the book any lower because of this aspect; specially since it didn’t affect my general enjoyment of the story.
