Her Second Chance

Her Second Chance (Harlequin Heartwarming)Shelley Galloway
Contemporary Romance

"There isn't much I wouldn't do for a really good chocolate chip cookie."

Tessa McGuiry knows the fashion world and definitely looks the part.  No one would expect her to take a second look at a homeless boy in the back alley of her office, let alone put herself out to help him and his mother - especially Keaton Phillips.  Keaton has living next door to Tessa for a while and they have never gotten along.  She is too flighty and unrealistic.  But when Tessa brings young Wes into her home, Keaton finds himself coming over more and more - and not just to help Wes with his homework.

My Opinion: This was a sweet story of charity and seeing into people's hearts and not just what they seem to be.  Tessa and Keaton both find themselves the victim's of judging each other unfairly.  Tessa is an amazingly selfless person and a near-perfect character.  Keaton keeps you more down to earth and shows a very realistic view of love after loss.  And of course, Wes is a great little kid who you just wish you could hug and make everything better.  There are some really good scenes in this one between Tessa and Keaton.  I love it when an author can make a good kiss and still keep out of the bedroom.  Good book.

I received a free copy of this book for review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
