Second Chance at Forever

Second Chance at Forever (Holiday Vermont Series book One) is the debut novel from author Heather Lire. The publisher is Desert Breeze Publishing and the release date is currently set for February 1, 2013. From Goodreads website.~

When Morgan Sanderson left her grandparent’s anniversary party, she had no idea how much the previous week would impact her life. Four years later she's living a content life, teaching literature and being the best mom she can be, even if she knows something is missing. That thing being the one person she can’t forgive and yet can’t get over.

The week Ryan Cartwright spent with Morgan was the best week of his life until tragedy struck, one that changed his life completely. Four years later he discovers he’s has three year old twins with Morgan the one woman he’s never been able to forget and let go. Can he forgive her from keeping the knowledge of his son’s from him.

As they uncover the truth behind their separation, they discover the love they've always felt for each other is still there, but can they ever trust each other again.

I love stories about family and have to say Heather Lire totally delivers with her debut novel. I loved the romance between Morgan and Ryan. Yes they had amazing chemistry from the beginning and their love scenes were wonderful. I also loved them as individual characters. Both are so strong and have such capacity for love.

When life keeps Morgan and Ryan away from one another for a few years, Morgan raises their twin sons Jaxon and Dylan. Ryan meanwhile is helping his brother raise their best friend Joe’s daughters Jayne and Kate. Only after the Sanderson and Cartwright families step in do Ryan and Morgan find one another 4 years after they first met and fell in love.

Ryan and his girls live in Boston while Morgan and their boys live in Holiday. Once all the kids met, I loved that Ryan and Morgan found a way to get the kids together as much as possible. They focused on bringing their family together even before they each had voiced their true feelings for one another. I could tell even after their time apart they each still loved one another. They also had such fabulous chemistry together and I loved how each was so protective of the other.

I also loved the relationship between Morgan and her triple siblings Case and Brynn and Ryan and his twin brother Ethan. As I read about each of the siblings, I was already making plans to read each of their books.

Heather Lire had me laughing out loud, smiling, crying and even sighing with happiness at any given time while I read this book. I’m a huge fan of contemporary romances and especially love stories in a series. I look forward to reading many more books from Heather Lire in the future. For more information about the author and her books, check out her website.

I loved this book so much, I want to share it with someone. I'll draw one (1) winner for an ebook copy of Second Chance at Forever from all the comments from February 1 to February 6. I'll post the winner on the blog on February 7.
