Second Chances--Review + Dream Cast + Giveaway

Welcome to Jo Brigg's "Second Chances" stop on my blog!

Title: Second Chances

Author: Jo Briggs

Layla Keyes is back in England. Much has changed in the five years since she moved to New York to pursue a modelling career - On the outside she appears independent, self-assured and enjoying running her own successful fashion label.

On the inside she is determined to take back what she lost five years ago when misunderstandings allowed a jealous third party to manipulate and interfere in destroying her relationship with Evan Carter.

Evan Carter has spent all that time pretending to not be affected by the loss of Layla from his life.

Layla and Evan tried to get out of each other's lives but fate brought their paths together again.

While you may think that this is the usual reconciliation slash love is lovelier the second time around kind of book, you'll figure out that it's actually more than that. There are a lot of twists and turns in this book and while some of them may be a bit unrealistic, it actually adds up to the beauty of the book.

I also really like all the layers to the characters. It showed that there's more to them than meets the eye. For me, complex characters add depth and edge to a story and that's one of the reasons why this book was good.

Second Chances is a book about giving ourselves another shot; another lease on life. It's a book that will make you smile, break your heart and leave you wanting more.
