So, I just finished Their Second Chance! I started shortly after the author sent me a copy this afternoon and I couldn't put it down! It was amazing! This was a great and emotional tale that enlightened me to fertility issues that I previously didn't know much about. It really is an eye opener to the things some couples have to go through to have a baby and it really made me feel so fortunate that the births of my own children went better than they could have. I do know what its like (view spoil ...more

Sickenly sweet,that's how I would sum up this read and that's not a bad thing. I need me some Nick, in my life. That is how a man in love fights and treats the woman he loves.

I don't mind reading stories in my romance novels with important story lines as I did in Their Second Chance. I do admit, that I thought the book would be too sad with a dark cloud, but I think the author

I was a beta reader for this book and was I blown away by the depth and knowledge that April Angel/Milly had put into this book as far as something that touches so many women's lives. At times it was like looking into my life, my heart, my pain and my happiness. It was a very good read that can at times sting your eyes and touch your heart. But above all else, it was laid out in a great format and is a very worth while read! I am looking forward to re reading the finished copy. This is a story I ...more

A leitura foi uma bela surpresa. Eu não conhecia a autora e vou passar a acompanhar o trabalho dela.
Gostei muito da história e não consegui parar a leitura até eu chegar ao final.


The reading was a nice surprise. I didn't know the author and I'm going to keep up with her work.
I really liked the story and I couldn't stop reading until I reach the end.

When I was offered the chance to read Ms. Angel’s newest book in its really early stages, I think this was the first draft, I was warned that it was very different from any of this author’s previous stories. I took the warning with a grain of salt because I’ve read a lot of books by this author and have come to expect them a certain way. I think I may have underestimated her. Their Second Chance was indeed different, and I’m not talking about the lack of graphic sex that readers familiar with Ta

I loved this story. Heartbreaking, Soul searching, sad, happy, wonderful. I can't think of enough descriptive words for this! It's a great book! If you're in the mood for a good cry, read this. If you're in the mood for true love, read this. Personal growth? Read this book! It was such a wonderful read!!!

In real life, asshole mother in laws remain assholes no matter what. It's biological an evolutionary fact. It's their sole purpose in life.

They don't turn around all of a sudden, in a moment when they, incidentally, finally get what they want.

They just keep wanting, not getting, of course, and remaining assholes.

I can't swallow anything with too much sugar. Not healthy.

A horrible experience caused a rift between Ari (Ariana) and Nick, which lead to them being estranged for two years. While the two were putting their signatures at the bottom of the divorce papers in the lawyer’s office, all kinds of thoughts began to take over Ari’s mind. Things like, were they ever good enough for each other, did they try hard enough, was she the right woman for him, was he the right man for her. Nick too was lost in his own world. The tension between them could have been cut ...more

OMG! This is my favorite April Angel book yet! It brought tears to my eyes, had me frustrated with the evil Mother-in-Law, but there were still a few chuckles in there too!

A Wonderful Story of Triumphant Love

Ariana Parker held her's and Nick's divorce papers in her hand. He was the only man she had ever loved, the only one to make her body burn with passion and her heart with joy!

Nick Parker lost the woman he loved to the infertility gods. The loss seemed to make them incapable of communication and hence the breakdown of a lovely marriage. He loved her still and without her he was lost.

Something happened the day they both arrived at their attorney's office to sign

This was something different than what Milly/April usually
writes. I don't want to say too much without giving
anything away, but I can tell you right now that this
story will touch you deeply. You won't feel the same
afterwards. Alot of couples can relate to this story,
but can walk away with hope.

What a waste of an original idea. It was ruined by a rushed story, lack of background and character development, and frankly horrible dialogue with the MIL.

I love second chance romances and jumped at the opportunity to read Their Second Chance by Milly Taiden writing as April Angel.

Nick and Ariana (Ari) Parker's marriage on the brink of divorce. In fact, the story opens with Ariana headed for the divorce attorney's office. She is heart broken and sick because she loves Nick and doesn't want to divorce him. However, their trials of conception drew them further apart instead of closer together. He has misconceptions about her and she has misconceptio

I read this story as part of the boxed set Red Hot Lovers.

This is a beautiful and dramatic second chance romance for a hurting couple who couldn’t figure out how to recover from the loss of their baby until it is almost too late.

Nick and Ariana met in college, fell in love and married. Their relationship was built on friendship and camaraderie. They not only loved, but respected each other as they pursued their dreams separately and together. Then the stresses of infertility, starting up their b

This was a book that made tears come to my eyes. It will be a book that I will read over and over again. It's one of those books that puts that warm funny feeling into your soul and brings goose bumps on your arms.

Ariana Parker loves her husband but doesn't know what else she can do. She has tried for years to get pregnant and the one time she did she had a miscarriage. Now when she asked for a divorce that she didn't want and her husband gives it to her without a fight she can't control the pai

Normally I love these second chance books. I love the giddy feeling I get when they are familiar with one another and all that. However this couple stopped speaking due to not being able to get pregnant and feeling like a failure, bla bla. They are ready to sign the divorce papers and during the meeting they are left alone and guess what happens? A dang on earth-quake? Guess what this lovely couple does during their divorce meeting? They have sex..Unprotected Sex! Guess what else? They have been

I have started my Red Hot Boxed Set of 18 books! This was the first in the set and a short one. Only about an hour and ten or so chapters.

I have to say this one read like a Mills and Boon :)

There was a whole lot of sweetness and I could have been reading about a friend.

Ari and Nick are heading for divorce when an earthquake occurs which send them running back into each others arms. They get back together, have a baby with a whole lot of pregnancy complications and live happily ever after.

I'm sorry but I'd like to think I'm openminded.
I kept reading while they were having sex in the lawyers' office during an earthquake, but continuing while making his mother into a villain it's just plain stupid. Infertility has a depth of it's own and while it could be a fantastic concept for a novel (a closed door to hash their problems out) the author clearly wanted to write a soap opera.

A sad start for this story about Ariana and Nick.
Loved Nick, wanted to slap Ariana.
Fertility problems and a miscarriage coupled with lack of support and communication, cause their marriage breakdown.
On the verge of divorcing, Nick and Ariana get a second chance.
When Ariana finds herself pregnant through sheer good luck, she continues to work for the client from hell rather than look after this much longed for baby.

Short but Sweet

Another winner. Usually when I read a book that has this few pages in it, the characters are not flushed out but I could connect with the main characters as well as the side characters. This storyline was amazing and I read it in one sitting!
