3 Hearts

Drew is lost without his girlfriend, Fable. She completed him and when he lost her, he truly realized what a treasure she was. But when he tries to get her back, Drew will have to pull out all the stops to show Fable he is the one she needs to be with and that he is lost without her and her love. The question is will Fable fall for Drew’s charm again and risk her heart once again with a guy who broke it into a million pieces?

I have to caution that if you have not read the first book in this quartet, then you will be a bit lost on this story. The author continues Drew and Fable’s story from One Week Girlfriend and I, for one, kept putting this one down while reading it. I just couldn’t get into the story fully and felt I was missing pieces from it. The author dies a good job in capturing the hidden nuances of her characters; the pace of the storyline was good, not overwhelming me at all. This was a new to me author and I am on the fence on reading the first book in this series. The points of views shift A LOT between Fable and Drew and that also through me out of the story as well. I wished the author would have kept it in either one or the other or even third person would have been preferred. I am the type of reader who prefers one or the other in point of view and felt the author was trying to get all the characters talking and it overwhelms at times. As it is, I am not a big fan on repetitive scenes and lots of drama between characters that just caused the story to read slower as you try to figure things out.

SECOND CHANCE BOYFRIEND is one of those love em or leave em books for me. The author is a talented storyteller but I felt the story could have been better understood if I didn’t come in the middle of the series/quartet, especially as there were countless scenes talking about what happened in past book(s). If you enjoy angsty new adult contemporary stories, then you might enjoy SECOND CHANCE BOYFRIEND.
