This book was a very well written love story. It is your typical love story but the characters are well developed and the story flows well. The editing was well done. Not perfect but not distracting either. If you like love stories that are clean and well written, you will enjoy this book. All loose ends are tied up in the epilogue. I asked bookfun.org for a copy of this book to review of my own free will.

Whether a reader is young or old, or single or married, this sweet romance, Second Chance Love, is sure to captivate. One doesn’t need to be an attorney or a bull rider/ rancher to appreciate the differing backgrounds of Sydney and Jace; the author describes both in such a way as to make each sound like the most desirable career choices in the world. Sydney has been an attorney for three years; she works for her late father’s law partner. To date, Harry Brownlee has not let her argue a case or do much more than research his cases. She clearly did not like the assignment when Harry’s nephew Jace came to Chicago and Sydney was sent to have lunch with Jace and talk him out of breaking a contract with a bull riding sponsor. . Sydney and Jace met two years earlier when he was in town and she was asked to show him around Chicago while Harry was working. Sparks flew, and they were surprised at the depth of attraction they felt. Sydney is a Christian and Jace was not, a huge reason to not pursue a long-distance relationship – Sydney in Chicago and Jace at his family’s ranch outside of San Antonio. This year, things were different. Jace was born again over a year ago, and his life was changing. Thus, the contract he wants to break is with a sponsor who had him pose with wait staff in skimpy uniforms to promote their business in exchange for financial backing on the circuit. Jace would have to pay a huge penalty, moneys he could ill afford since there was a hefty tax debt that could cost Jace and his mom the ranch if not paid. After a lunch in which Jace had not made a favorable decision, they separated thinking they wouldn’t see each other again. Harry sent Sydney to where the rodeo was being held that weekend. Sydney wasn’t happy about the trip, as it was the anniversary of her father’s passing and she usually spent it with her mother. Once at the rodeo, she began to learn about the competitions and it started to sound interesting. During the holiday weekend, Sydney and Jace started to run smack into each other’s emotional scars, and Sydney was not liking it. At all. There were two kinds of sparks flying, attraction and anger. Events in the lives of their family members cut the weekend short. Jace and Sydney become more transparent to the reader as they are to each other. They are complex, three-dimensional people who are very likable. Others that we meet are less well defined as their contributions to the novel are minimized. The depth of love Jace has for Sydney is evident. Sydney is in love with Jace, but has private reasons for not trying to have a relationship. The plot is so much more than a love story. There is the romance each person has with the Lord, and the strong commitment each feels toward family members. There are plot twists that threaten the landscape of Jace and Sydney getting to know each other better, including words said in anger and words meant to shut the other out. It demonstrates how Jace’s newly found love for the Lord is so passionate, so alive! There are spiritual lessons that might help a reader in any stage of their walk with the Lord as one observes their interactions. This is the kind of novel that a Christian woman who enjoys women’s challenges and romance. I highly recommend Second Chance Love; it is sweet, realistic, and hopeful, an excellent read. From a grateful heart: I was given this eBook by Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and here is my honest review.

I don't read a lot of contemporary romance, and I don't think I have ever read a novel about bull riders. But the premise about a Christian cowboy looking to get out of his contract with a restaurant chain that uses scantily clad women in their advertising intrigued me: what DO celebrities who come to faith mid-contract do when what they previously agreed to violates their newly Spirit-controlled lives? I enjoyed the book, and part of the reason is that it immersed me in a world very different from my daily life. It is an education for this city girl, containing lots of details about rodeos and the various acronyms surrounding them, animals, and the business of ranching. There is also some legal-eeze and contract renegotiation discussion, too. But even with the setting being so different, the characters come across as relatable and the story isn't overpowered by the details. At its heart, this is just a fun, mostly lighthearted romance. It has heavier moments with wounds and losses that need to heal but the sweet love story outshines the difficulties the characters face. Despite the surface differences between them, I rooted for the couple from the earliest pages and enjoyed reading about their journey. I would recommend this novel for those with an interest in contemporary romance or stories with a western feel to them. It is a unique and fun novel—a great way to spend some time! I received a free copy of this book from the author through The Book Club Network. I was not required to write a positive review and the thoughts expressed are both honest and my own.

“Second Chance Love,” is a modern-day Christian romance, written by Pamela S. Meyers. This is a light-hearted, easy to read story about a young couple that met two years ago, enjoyed each other’s company, but decided not to pursue a relationship. But, when they meet again, well, perhaps things might be different now. Will she trade in her high heels for cowboy boots and move to Texas? Or, will he trade in his cowboy hat for a suit, and move to Chicago? In order to have a relationship, one of them will have to give up their dreams. Or, can they develop new dreams? This story involves travel, some time spent at a rodeo, in a hospital, in restaurants, and in parks. We have several relaxing environments, and some quite stressful ones, as we learn how Jace and Sydney develop their friendship, attempt to let go of the pain from their pasts and try to trust God. This is a clean, sweet story, that shows us how sometimes love can take us by surprise. I received this book from The Book Club Network and the author, in exchange for my honest review.
