A Second chance at love

This is the love journey Erica and Todd. Finding someone that you love and they love you back is very special but finding it twice is...priceless! This was a very sweet story of second chances at love. Erica's husband passed several years ago leaving her with a Newborn baby boy to raise by herself. Emotionally and financially this was tough for Erica. But she persevered. Then while working her second job she meets a very handsome Todd. Immediately they noticed each other.

This is one of the sweetest stories I've read in a very long time. The little boy stole my heart in the very beginning of the story.

Wow, that was fast.. I read this in just under and hour and it was an hour well spent. This is a multi pov read.

One thing I did run across was there were a few grammer/missused word errors that slipped through. As a beta reader an content editor it caused me to pause for a moment. (Because I'm used to looking for things like that) so I would have to go back and re-read a bit to get back into the flow. However, it did not negatively effect the story.

I loved Todd, Erica and Miles. This is an inte

Quick easy reading experience that is sweet and fun. Erica and Miles are a team, having lost her husband there is only the two of them.

Erica and Miles allow him to be just Todd and they are quickly caught up in each others lives.

econd Chances by Reana Malori (IR)

Erica and Todd’s story is a lovely story of two people finding love and how a man can fall in love with a child that not his own. I love the honest dialogue between the couple and Miles was an absolute darling. Short but sweet!

I think I am falling in love with author and her short stories! Loving them for sure!

I read another IR story by this author and thought there was enough potential that I should get some of her other stories. This is a fun, short read about Erica Parker and Todd Atkins. Erica's a widow with a 4-year old son. While working at her second job at a local bowling alley, she meets millionaire entrepreneur Todd Atkins.
Todd's out with his friends just having a boys night out when he meets Erica and her son, Miles.

There's no conflict or drama here just a sweet romance that might be a bi

Okay, this is just a sweet story (you know the kind that make you feel all warm and fuzzy). Good premise, and good characters make for an enjoyable read.

Wow! What a fantastic book! I was enthralled from the very beginning and did not want it to end. What an amazing, heart-warming story of second chances. The interactions with Todd and Miles were perfectly written and so endearing. I’ve tried several times to try to put into words just exactly how this book warmed my heart but I’m having difficulty articulating it. It’s just all in all a great book. Yes, there were a couple editing issues, but it does not detract from a wonderful story that is a ...more

Second Chances is an adorable story with a little heat. It proves you never know what is behind the next door you walk through. It may be your soulmate! This is a biracial story but it is not all about that and it is very refreshing. Both Erica and Todd were real and you didn't associate either with the color of their skin. Plus Miles was such an important part of the story and he was such a sweetheart. It was terrific to read a story about second chances working out.

Opposites Attract - Fantastic short read – An amazing story of finding your second chances…and finally giving into them. Two opposite pieces of the portrait come together and form a complete picture. A short read but definitely a must read!!!

I love this book!!!

This book was one of the first books I read by this Author. I love how Todd fell in love with Erica's son first. Miles was such a little gentleman.

This was a short love story about Erica getting a second chance at love. She meets Todd at her place of business and both feel a connection to each other. Throughout the entire story the both deny this connection and just continue to be friends. It wasn't until Erica decided that she needed to start dating again that the two of them realized what they felt for each other was real feelings. This story takes you on a journey of two completely different people find love with each other and create a ...more

Reana Malori is a pseudonym for a chick with dreams of world domination. However, if that’s not possible, I’m willing to settle for being one of the best interracial romance / erotica writers on the market (along with some of my favorite authors who already know who they are). I’ve been reading romance novels since the age of 14 and know what appeals to me as reader. The goal is to provide that sa ...more
