Second Chances

3.24 of 5 stars 3.24  ·  rating details  ·  226 ratings  ·  11 reviews
There was just no getting away from that fact that Holly Johnson was fat. She knew she wasn’t cute and round, or pleasingly plump. She was fat - and smart and funny and impish. Chance Thompson was, in a word, not. Very not. In fact, he was downright gorgeous – and dominant and loving and supportive. He was always more than willing to lend Holly a guiding hand – preferably ...more

Review of Second Chances by Carolyn Faulkner


Some things are meant to go together...

Peanut butter and chocolate.

Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Butch and Sundance.

Spanking and pregnancy...uh, not so much. Seriously. Not a good idea.


Second Chances (a contemporary, spanking erotica) has a laundry list of problems, not the least of which is ending a spanky erotica with a pregnancy. The funny thing is....despite all of these problems, I still really enjoyed the book.

First, let's start with the duds....

Well, I did love the insecure, chubby heroine and the angst. But, the spanking. They did not properly negotiate a BDSM relationship. Not nearly enough communication, no safe word... And sex seemed to be the cure-all for betrayal. The timeline was confusing at first, it jumped around a bit, but once it settled, I liked it. Then slowly lost interest, to be honest. I'd check out other books by this author if they featured my preferred heroine, though. (2.5 stars)

Sorry had to give this a 3.5, due to the fact, that HollyBee was getting on my last nerve. Hey I understand she is a big girl, but come one, How in the hell will you have a cat and a hairy dog, and you have asthma, WTF! look I know she was depress for seeing her man kissing another woman; I truly understand. Chance was there taking care of her, he felt guilty the way things happened. He loved her so.

“Dominant Spanking Never Fails!”

OMG! This book is really good! It was funny and steamy…’Ohhh it soo hot in here.’



It’s about Holly a full-figured woman who works as a teacher in a small town, she has this long time feelings with Chance a hunky paramedic guy. She has issues about her figure about being undesirable and ugly, but Chance had fallen in love with her. Then it turns out a thrilling steamy romance and more dominant spanking. You may encounter a REAL HEART BREAK that makes you ache. The t

It started off way too slow for my liking and the flashback parts drove me a wee bit mad. I like things in order, not flashing back but the story starts where the drama starts basically. It was a sweet book but it felt really rushed. Also the heroine seemed pretty immature and petty at times. I didn't really have any issue with the hero but at the same time I can't help but feel the hero cheated on her physically, the other woman attacked him. Yes, I feel mentally he cheated on her because he wa ...more

This one has the potential to be 4 stars, but just missed that mark for me.
I found both the hero and heroine (Chance and Holly) to be very likeable; each with their own faults that gave the story a "real" feel.
There were some distracting editing errors that made me read a sentence more than once before I figured out what was wrong.
On the positive side, the story did an good job of putting you into the minds of the H/h. The H's point of view was well represented. It did go astray a couple of tim

I enjoyed the fact that the heroine in this novel was full-figured, but her issues with her body image got a bit grating near the end. Overall, worth the read. Book contained some light bdsm in the form of spanking. The relationship between the two characters was well developed, but I didn't like this couple as much as some of the couples in her other books.
Alicia
This is another great story with plenty of spankings to go along with the actual plot. The story is about a woman who is heavy and insecure and ho finds it hard to believe her hot fire fighting boyfriend really wants her. There are definitly some conflicts along the way but in the end they both get their HEA.
