Synopsis: Korinne Anders had it all. She had the perfect job, the perfect house, and the perfect husband. When tragedy strikes, her world takes a devastating turn. Six months after losing her husband to a car accident, Korinne vows it to herself never to love again. If she doesn’t allow another man in her heart, then there’s no reason for her to feel the pain of loss. This plan seems to work, but is put to the test when Korinne’s best friend can’t stand to see her suffering any longer.
Korinne’s long-time friend, Jenna Perry, has an idea and it involves helping her friend find the spark of life in her soul no matter what it takes. Korinne didn’t know that Jenna’s plan meant bringing back a past love, a second chance with the man that Korinne had to leave in college, but always kept a place for in her heart.
When Galen Matthews learns of Korinne’s loss and that she’s finally moved back home, he wants nothing more than to be there for her. The love he felt for Korinne years ago has never left him, and now he’s given a second chance to not only mend her heart of her loss, but to also continue the love they shared in the past. Will his love and determination make her strong enough to give fate a second chance, or will her fear of losing another love make her run away?
What will Korinne do when she’s faced with a love so powerful that no matter what she does there’s nowhere to run from it?
Favourite quote: "I love you Korinne. I would have fought to the end of time to come back to you."
This book quite literally blew my mind! It blew my mind enough that I found it difficult to review! I was not expecting it at all! I tried so hard to slow down with it but I honestly couldn't! It was such an addicting book that made me want to read on and on! I knew who L.P. Dover was for ages before I read this book but I just hadn't had the chance to sit down and read her Forever Fae series so I was very excited when I heard about this Blog Tour and the chance to read her new contemporary! Love's Second Chance was a beautiful love story about moving on, accepting and surviving love! It was an exceptional book with absolutely no flaws! The plot was beautiful and it went at the perfect pace! I thoroughly enjoyed it! I tried so hard not to cry at the plot but I ended up crying the entire way through this book! It really hit my emotions hard and I could actually feel the pain that the characters went through! I normally cry at contemporary books but this one really made my cry! The plot also had quite a lot in it so it kept me very entertained! There were also twists in it as well! The characters were amazing! Korinne was the main character and she was beyond amazing! You saw her go through a lot at the beginning of this book and then you get to see her trying to let go and move on but you see her struggle and you can't help but feel sorry for her! She was an amazingly strong character and I simply adored her! Galen was the love interest of Korinne and he was hot! I loved how he always put Korinne first and he was so protective of her! He had also been through quite a lot so to finally see two broken characters mend each other really was amazing! I also loved all the secondary characters as well as they brought so much to the story! I loved that Love's Second Chances was written from Korinne and Galen's point of view as I think that this was definitely essential as there was so much emotion in this book that it needed to be divided! I also loved seeing the characters feelings develop for each other! The ending was beautiful! It completed the book up perfectly but I honestly wouldn't mind another book! The cover is also stunning! It is exactly how I pictured the characters while I was reading the book! Big thank you to Mrs Potter's Book Publicity Services for having me on the Blog Tour and to L.P. Dover for an ARC of Love's Second Chance!

I am an avid reader that loves my collection of books. Writing has always been a passion of mine and now I am glad that I get to share my passion with the world. I live in North Carolina and I absolutely love being a southern girl. I spent several years in college starting out with a major in Psychology and then switching to dental. I worked in the dental field for eight years and then decided to stay home with my two beautiful girls. I spent the beginning of my reading years reading suspense thrillers, but now I can't get away from the paranormal/fantasy books. I knew ever since then that if I wrote anything it would be in a paranormal aspect. Now that I have started on my passion and began writing, you will not see me go anywhere without a notebook and pen.
