I recently finished That Secret Crush, book 3 in the Getting Lucky series and I totally loved it! While I finalize my review for that book, let’s take a look back at our reviews for the first two books in the series!
Today we’ve got our review for That Second Chance, which was our introduction to Port Snow and The Knighly clan. I dare you to not be totally enchanted by this small town and these incredible characters!
Enjoy our review and check back soon for our review of That Forever Girl and That Secret Crush. Coming soon!
She’s playful. She’s fun. She’s beautiful. She’s everything I would look for in a woman… And everything I should stay away from.
The Knightly brothers may be Port Snow’s most eligible bachelors but after a drunken night in New Orleans, they have also become the most untouchable bachelors in town. Silly superstition or an actual family curse? It’s hard for Griffin Knightly to not believe that he’s actually cursed after the bad luck he’s had in love. Not wanting his dark cloud to dampen anyone else, he’s basically sworn off dating until Ren Winters comes to town and, quite literally, crashes into his life. She’s a breath of fresh air and he can’t help but fall for her charms. As Griffin lets down his guard and lets Ren into his heart, will she turn out to be his second chance at love or will the Knightly brother curse strike again?
I absolutely loved this book! I seriously want to move to Port Snow, Maine! This town that Meghan Quinn has created has utterly charmed me and I just couldn’t get enough. It’s been a while since a book has swept me off my feet but Griffin and Ren’s story absolutely did that. From their hilarious and unconventional meet-cute involving a suicidal moose to their sweet friendship that slowly transforms into more, I was totally smitten with these two. Ren was so sweet, friendly, and down-to-earth, she’s someone you can totally see yourself being friends with. I respected her desire to set out on her own and make a life for herself out from under the thumb of her well-intentioned yet overbearing parents. She threw herself wholeheartedly into immersing herself in her new hometown and I loved seeing all her new friendships form. Then there was Griffin, talk about swoon!! The poor guy has been carrying quite the burden for the past two years and he put up quite the effort to try and resist Ren but it was oh so much fun watching him soften toward her. He was so romantic without even trying to be, I seriously had butterflies several times while reading this. I just had so much fun reading about these two!
I’ll be honest, I’ve been feeling a little burnt out with reading lately but during, and now after, reading this book, it feels so good to be excited by a good romance again! For me, this book had everything I love about the genre. A charming small town, loveable and relatable main characters and a fabulous set of supporting characters! As if Griffin wasn’t enough of a treat, he’s got THREE amazing brothers!! Plus a great older sister and hilariously adorable parents. Not to mention Ren’s parents! There were so many laugh-out-loud moments involving both of their families. I loved this book and I’m super excited that we get to return to Port Snow and spend more time with these amazing guys in the future!
“…You got to me, Ren. You got past my defenses, and I couldn’t get you out of my head, no matter how hard I tried.”
