Review for About Her (Second Chance Romance #2)

Blurb: Shelley Ward doesn’t know what she wants out of life, but she knows being a broke, accidental home-wrecker isn’t it. Her whole life, she did what was easy. Her dad coached; she chose a career in football. A guy hit on her; she slept with him. The path of least resistance was leading to a cliff.

Broadway producer, Mark Salvan is a man who keeps his life under control—until he spots Shelley, his high school crush being dragged out of LaGuardia Airport by TSA. He rescues her from security, offers her a job, and gives her a place to stay. He’s certain their chance encounter will be her grand-third-act-closing and the start of their story. In Shelley’s heart, it feels like destiny—like someone finally sees her. But logic tells her this perfect man can’t be in love with her, that her true destiny will be that of a lonely spinster who’ll be lucky to have the affections of her cat.

Shelley can’t see it, but there’s something special about her, and Mark is determined to prove it.

Review: Miserable and lonely, Shelley Ward leaves her job in Poland and flies back home to the US with no plan and very little in her bank account. An incident on the plane with an angry stewardess gets Shelley kicked off, and she's rescued from security by a face from her past, Mark Salvan. He's gorgeous and successful, and surely he can't like her. She's sure he's just taken pity on her when he offers her a job and a place to stay. Yet Mark feels so much more, and Shelley makes him crazy. With her impulsiveness, they make quite a train wreck. Can Mark convince her that he truly does want a life with her or will Shelley run and live her life as a spinster?

This is the second book in the marvelous romance series, Second Chance Romance. It helps to have read the first book to know the background of some of the secondary characters (and I totally recommend reading the first book, About Us, because it is awesome!), but the story can stand on its own. I love this book because Shelley is far from perfect, she admits that and owns it. She's made mistakes, and the consequences have affected her. Yet she is also stronger for it. Do not expect the sweet and pure virgin type. Shelley has a big heart and she can take care of herself, but she made some bad choices. Mark, too, is guarded because of his past. He might be obsessively organized, but he has his own secrets. The tension between the two of them is sizzling, but all that baggage makes it difficult to truly see one another. There's tons of craziness, sweet moments, and raw emotions. Everyone does deserve a second chance.
