Second Chances (When Seconds Count #1) by D. L. Roan



Heat Rating

I read this book back in 2014 and had every intention of republishing it long before now but with everything that happened it got lost in the disaster that became my families’ life. Thankfully this road trip has given me a lot of time to get lots done, and there is a lot of road when your cruising 101 to San Diego and then we were off to Kingman, Arizona to see my very excited mother-in-law. Now we are homeward bound and already passed through Vegas which only has 1 Dutch Bros ☹ and I successfully revamped two of my previously posted reviews that I pulled.

I didn’t really change anything in this review just some edits and add to that when I went looking for publishing info for Second Chances I noticed that the author had made changes to the cover and even to the title so stay tuned for a newer review later, I am curious about the possibility of any changes to actual story.

This the first book by D. L. Roan that has passed in front of me and have to say that I had to take breaks thinking that I didn’t want to read it any more but found myself going back to it at every opportunity, I even read other books during my breaks. I think I need to those breaks to process the really, intense or heart rending scenes.

The author did a wonderful job of developing her characters and you can see the thought she put into her story line, I had a hard time not crying every time Claira wanted to or did. Yeah it had some hot sex scenes and all the other accoutrements that go with a ménage book, but it was not defined by those things but by the story line.

I would also like to say that I really like the way the author used words ‘fucktard’ and ‘stupid fucker’ were the perfect adjectives for the situations to which they were used.

Do you love Ménage Romance? You can’t miss Second Chances, a full length, unforgettable, ménage love story that will leave you breathless!!

Six years after the McLendon brothers lost their wife during the birth of their twins they are merely existing. Focused only on running their ranch and raising their boys, finding another woman to share their hearts with isn’t even a dot on their map…..until Claira Robbins drops into their family like a baby bird falling from its nest.

She certainly ruffles more than a few feathers. Matt and Mason believe she is the one who will heal their hearts and family. Their older brother Grey? He plans to live the rest of his life comfortably numb from the neck down, even if it kills him…and it just might if Claira’s lethal past catches up to her.

Can they convince Grey to let go of the past and give love a second chance? Or will his own haunting secret destroy what is left of their family for good?
