    I read and finished the book That says something about the story, right The question is, is there any good Well, 34 chapters plus prologue and epilogue The best bit is the prologue then the epilogue The rest of it Not so much At least that s how I feel.Kind of disappointed really, when the heroine traveled back in time to her 18 years old self, she went back with her memories intact So, what did I expecting A mature 48 years old woman who tried to correct hers and her dead husband situation I read and finished the book That says something about the story, right The question is, is there any good Well, 34 chapters plus prologue and epilogue The best bit is the prologue then the epilogue The rest of it Not so much At least that s how I feel.Kind of disappointed really, when the heroine traveled back in time to her 18 years old self, she went back with her memories intact So, what did I expecting A mature 48 years old woman who tried to correct hers and her dead husband situation in an adult and mature way But what did I get A horny 18 years old girl who behaved just like that, 18 yo Her mind of thinking is baffled me, she thought if the younger self hubby won t to know her in her present time, it meant there is 10 years gap that she need to fill in with hooked up with other guy Why is that, she was 48yo for god sake, can she think of something how to becloser to Callahan Of course she can t Because sheinterested with this other guy.I felt like that s mocking the sadness angst of the story the author tried to tell us.Also, what happened with her daughter she left behind when she moved to this world Did she find her mum dead in her world or what There is absolutely no explanations And that was very bad I read weird PNR story than this and believed in them because the author explained to her readers why we should believe in them This one Not good So yeah, all the gossips, the gay BFF, the roommate, the party, the hooked up, and classes all feels like YA NA It written good though, if you like this type of story, you probably will adore it but that is not what I wanted to read.And the hero He wasn t there much, if there is no prologue, I will say the hero is the other guy.Because he was there in those chapters except prologue and epilogue, sigh See what I mean Mocking the seriousness of her situation

    Ms Bennett is an auto read for me Her writing just gets better and better When I first read the blurb of this story, I was mixed It is intriguing but I m not too interested in contemporary romance Within the first few pages or screen swipes I am hooked and I know I made a grave mistake I started this book right before I was going to bed Warning, do not start this book just before you are going to do something or go to bed Set time aside to savour this book from beginning to end This i Ms Bennett is an auto read for me Her writing just gets better and better When I first read the blurb of this story, I was mixed It is intriguing but I m not too interested in contemporary romance Within the first few pages or screen swipes I am hooked and I know I made a grave mistake I started this book right before I was going to bed Warning, do not start this book just before you are going to do something or go to bed Set time aside to savour this book from beginning to end This is one of those books that give you quite a book hangover I m emotionally wrung out after going through Jayden s second chance to be with the love of her life.The set up of the story is filled with angst If you were given one chance to go back in time with all the knowledge you currently have, would you do it What if it was because you were able to meet your soulmate years earlier Would you do it What if you had to give up your currently life and there is no guarantee your soulmate will recognize you years before you initially met For Jayden, a tragic moment causes her to leap at this chance without thought to the ramifications This is cleverly done to support Jayden s impulsive and rather reckless personality I really liked Jayden even if I didn t understand half the choices she makes Ms Bennett does a wonderful job of creating a what if scenario with a possible unhappily ever after The layers to this story is truly awe inspiring The observations of a 48 year old in an 18 year old body resonates so well for women in their 40s like me Yet even having all the knowledge of an olderexperienced self, I do not believe I would take this chance because for me, it would be hell to go back to my college years at the age of 18 Would I do many things differently For sure, there is no doubt What Ms Bennett sneakily does is interweave between trying to re creating the same results sooner as well as trying something different This constant pulling between what Jayden knows can happen and wants to happen versus seeing the past with a new perspective is very well done Ms Bennett balances it so well I am impressed with how she masterfully shows that sometimes, it is about meeting at the right person at the right time, not the right person at the wrong time Because as most people evolve and grow based upon their painful experiences, a younger version may not be exactly the right fit The erotic piece to this story is smoking hawt There is a little hint of kinky sex to kick up the heat The sexual tension and sensual flirtation is what makes this erotica so arousing It is a fine tease to an explosive orgasm instead of a quick back alley blowjob When it come to sex, Ms Bennett knows her stuff and how to get a rise, even if it is just an illicit fingering in a professor s office.The relationship between Cally and Jayden both the first and second time plays into the romance lover s desire for a soulmate For those who believe, this is a story of affirmation and possibilities For those who don t believe, it is a still an endearing and moving piece of love which transcends time This speculative romance is highly recommended to readers who believe that soulmates will always find their way back to each otherI received this book as a review copy in return for an honest review

    I was a little disappointed because this book had such great reviews Now the premise of this story is truly unique and I loved the concept of the book but it fell short in a few ways.I did like Jayden She had a great fun personality She was a very direct, honest person In the early parts of the book when she first travels back to her college days, it appears to be a love triangle with Callahan and Travis However she never played games with them and there is no cheating Honestly I m not sur I was a little disappointed because this book had such great reviews Now the premise of this story is truly unique and I loved the concept of the book but it fell short in a few ways.I did like Jayden She had a great fun personality She was a very direct, honest person In the early parts of the book when she first travels back to her college days, it appears to be a love triangle with Callahan and Travis However she never played games with them and there is no cheating Honestly I m not sure of the purpose of Travis character He eventually never had any significant purpose in the book in my opinion.I also love Packy who is Jayden s college BFF Their friendship plays a big role in this book and I loved how he was always there for her through thick and thin Overall I think this book needed some serious editing It did not have to be this long So many unnecessary scenes There were so many scenes with Packy and Jayden going to eat lunch and describing what they were eating and having conversations that had no bearing on the progress of the story.The steam in this book was great It was really fun to see Jayden know exactly how to seduce Callahan seeing as she was married to him for 20 years and knew exactly what he liked They did get their HEA but I did not completely buy into that ending It kind of ended a little suddenly with one of the characters just magically having a change of heart.So overall this book was ok but I was a little underwhelmed.3 StarsAdult RomanceHeat Level ModerateSingle POV HeroineHEA

    I am an avid reader like 100 books a year kind of reader so trust me when I say The Second First Chance is a book not to be missed I am also an author so in this review I will share my thoughts first on Blakely Bennett s writing instead of describing the story which you can read yourself in the synopsis I will include a tidbit or two about the plot at the end, don t worry.In my opinion, Ms Bennett does a seamless job of both showing and telling the reader this story of love and devotion Sh I am an avid reader like 100 books a year kind of reader so trust me when I say The Second First Chance is a book not to be missed I am also an author so in this review I will share my thoughts first on Blakely Bennett s writing instead of describing the story which you can read yourself in the synopsis I will include a tidbit or two about the plot at the end, don t worry.In my opinion, Ms Bennett does a seamless job of both showing and telling the reader this story of love and devotion She blends an active narrative summary with a fast paced interior monologue and witty character dialogue to bring the reader into the lives of Jayden, Callahan, and Patrick They are fun and likeable characters that every reader can relate to Readers will get involved and invested in Jayden and Callahan s love story right from the start they ll become a part of it because of the way Ms Bennett shows the interaction between them with a lot of dialogue and action There is never a dull moment When writing a story like The Second First Chance, authors often risk sharing too much of the past history of the characters, they get lost in telling the reader what happened instead of focusing on what is currently happening or what will likely occur That is not true of Blakely Bennett or The Second First Chance The Second First Chance s plot moves forward at a quick pace and holds the reader s interest from the very beginning, sprinkling backstory in a scene or two here and there along the way Ms Bennett has written The Second First Chance from Jayden s point of view and gives the reader just enough of the past story to wet their appetite and hook them into Jayden s life, both past and present This is a story for people of various ages but I found myself smiling in nostalgia as a person who is of a similar age to the main character It didn t hurt that I also love a second chance story or that Ms Bennett s novel is technically sound i.e., sentence structure, flow of verbiage Readers of The Second First Chance will love the conflict between Jayden and Callahan It is what will keep the readers turning the pages of this book well into the night it is a very hard book to put down Once you get a glimpse of the characters at odds with one another you will most definitely lose some sleep The Second First Chance holds a sexual tone that is appropriate for adult readers The sex scenes are graphic in language and content but mature and tasteful, showing the action and dialogue between the two characters involved Readers will see each action feel the sensations with the characters as they occur Overall, as a reader as well as an author, I was impressed with Blakeley Bennett s voice and the flavor of this story.And now for a few words on the plot Choiceswe make them every day, right Do you ever wonder what would happen if you were given the opportunity to go back in time and have another go at those choices What if you knew how your life would played out, would you take the chance and go back, change things Well, that is exactly the experience Jayden is offered after she loses her soulmate, Callahan, in 2015 Jayden journeys back to 1985 and experiences her college days once again She quickly falls back into a friendship with Patrick, her gay best friend, who will remain by her side during times of trouble This time around she vows never to lose touch with him.She meets Professor Travis Stratford on this return visit and he changes the course of her life, encouraging Jayden s love of writing But that s not all the good Professor is interested in Travis has his eyes on Jayden and threatens to ruin her second chance with the love of her life.Jayden quickly discovers that young Cal is much different from the older version of himself, YOS your older self as she refers to him Young Cal is still reeling from a recent loss, his wounds are raw and he is far from ready to meet Jayden She must find the patience to wait for Cal and win him over Maybe Travis will be the distraction she needs while waiting Come find out and enjoy this emotional read

    Rarely does a romance book evoke deeper questions and thoughts such as the probability of meeting a true soul mate, the pain of losing such a love, and the opportunity of going back in time to relive that relationship The Second First Chance does just that.The prologue rips your heart out as Jayden mourns Callahan, her husband of twenty years, and with him their love that is still so great, so profound, that even his untimely death cannot end it quite so completely, as this love seems almost et Rarely does a romance book evoke deeper questions and thoughts such as the probability of meeting a true soul mate, the pain of losing such a love, and the opportunity of going back in time to relive that relationship The Second First Chance does just that.The prologue rips your heart out as Jayden mourns Callahan, her husband of twenty years, and with him their love that is still so great, so profound, that even his untimely death cannot end it quite so completely, as this love seems almost eternal At the age of 48, Jayden s life is suddenly transformed from sheer bliss to an unbearable heartbreak Nothing makes sense any, so when Jayden is faced with the opportunity to travel back in time and to become 18 once again, it is a prospect that makes as much sense as everything else in her painful and somewhat hazy reality And so she does Jayden leaves everything behind, even her eighteen year old daughter she had with Callahan, Ashley, and sets up to relive her life once again Why So that she could try to meet her love and her soul mate ten years earlier, when she s 18, so that they would enjoy a much longer life together than what they had the first time around Sounds simple, except, there are no guarantees Destiny is one thing The choices we make are something else.I enjoyed the story and I loved the premise because it made me think and ponder not just about love and life, but about the choices we make and just how much they shape our past and future I really liked the college setting, the friendship between Jayden and Packy, their many interactions, Jayden s attempts to live a normal life despite the fact that she came back from the future and kept her memories One thing I regret is not havingof Jayden and Callahan together Their love was so beautiful, I wanted to stay with them just a little bit longer
