Just another one night stand…

Ryann despised the thought, but it was the only one she could draw when she woke up in an empty bed. Tired of being let down by everyone she cared about--aside from her brother--Ryann begins taking her life back, pushing back at all the bad and ugly life tosses at her.

Ryder knew the moment he left Ryann alone in bed he’d made a mistake. Runnin

Love this story. I've been waiting to find out more about Ryder. I love how Ryann and Ryder reconnect, and how it nearly explodes. Great story. If you liked Ryder, you need to read this. ...more

I love second chance romances so when I see the name of a book titled Second Chances I was excited to read it. Make sure you read Ryder first, don’t worry it is a novella so it is a quick read but it sets up Second Chances so if you don’t read it you may not fully understand why Ryann is so pissed at Ryder.

When I finished Ryder I was really excited to start Second Chances, and it started off about nine months after Ryder ends so there has been some time sinc

A beautifully written second chance romance!

After reading Ryder (the prequel novella to Second Chances) I have been not so patiently waiting for this book. I needed to know what was in store for Ryann and Ryder and if they could ever get an HEA.

Ryann is trying to move on after Ryder up and leaving her nine months ago, and not really living anymore. She’s going on blind dates her brother sends her on, but never feels anything for them. We get to see her leaving a guy at dinner, and I felt horribl

I never was a big fan for second chance romances, but I can't express how much I'm happy that finally I got to see how Ryann and Ryders story will ends.

Honestly, the story goes differently, then I expected. Though, I can't say for sure what I expected. But different isn't bad here. I really enjoyed it. I finished reading in one go.

Before starting to read this, you must to read Ryders book, because the story continues about 9 months after where Ryders ended.

So, 9 months Ryann is in hell. She's hu

I was pulled right into this super short story. The story has laughs, pain, and secrets.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first
Ryder by Rebecca Brooke

This story picks up a few months after Ryder ended. Ryann was left heartbroken and disappointed. When Ryder made her feel special she thought he would stay but he left. When Ryder left he thought it was for the best but what happens when he gets a second chance? Will he run again or will he stay and figh

Follow up to Ryder.

I enjoyed the story, but "missed" their courtship. I think that 7 month gap hurt the story a bit. However, the story we did get was good. Two people with issues...can they find a middle ground?

I loved how Ryder made the decision to be in a better place before trying to contact Ryann. Her brother is a loving snake! LOL Seriously WTG dude! By the way I hope he gets a story.

This is a quick read so we don't get all the details, but we do get a HEA!

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

After reading Ryder I was crushed at the end and I so wanted to know the rest of the story. I needed to know what was going to happen next and would Ryann and Ryder find their way back to one another.

Ryder took off in the middle of the night. That’s right no note, no good bye, no see you laters, or great knowing you just up and left. This crushed Ryann. You see Ryann never opened up to anyone, never let anyone in, she only tr

5 Stars!

This is the follow up to the prequel Ryder by this author and what a fantastic installment it was. This book picks up months following the disappearance of Ryder... and this author did not disappoint after a semi long wait. While a fast read, this book was sexy, sweet, and suspenseful.

Ryann thought maybe he was special. She opened herself up again only to be left... forgotten. She has moved through the grieving of him and moved on. But a chance encounter out of town throws her life into

Second Chances is the continuation of Ryder. It starts about nine months after the book Ryder finishes off.

Ryder is kicking himself for the mistake he made of leaving Ryann in his bed without a word. He just wasn’t ready to let her in his life so he had to get out of there. He wouldn’t see her until he had his life turned around.

Ryann knew she was taking a chance by falling for the bad boy Ryder. She hoped he was going to be different than other guys but boy was she wrong.

When they bump into eac

Ryder and Second Chances by Rebecca Brooke will both be reviewed together. Both the parts are needed to be read at the same time in order to get to experience the full extent of this story. Copies provided in exchange for an honest and spoiler free review. This is a 4 star review.

Ryder is running from his past, he doesn't commit or form connections. He doesn't stay very long in one place to put down roots . He meets Ryann by chance when he's stranded in her town. They get one night together, t

Received a copy of this amazing book from the author for an honest review....

The title of this book says it all, Second Chances, it is about more than second chances at love, it is also about second chances at life.

I read the prequel novella right before starting this book, I was so glad that I did not have to wait for the rest of Ryder and Ryann's story, I knew it was going to be amazing. The chemistry between Ryder and Ryann is off the charts hot, even when Ryann is trying to resist Ryder she

I absolutely LOVE a second chance and by the title I knew I would be happy with this one. The first book (novella) grabbed me and left me wanting more of this couple. It just couldn't end for them that way!!! Thank Heavens it didn't.

Ryann and Ryder had a second "chance meeting" that quickly sparked their second chance at love. Their attraction was undeniable no matter how hard she tried to fight it. He knew and kept at her because this is the girl he wanted. I loved seeing them spill their pasts

Second Chances is a quick read that keeps you wanting more. It's fast paced and full of surprises. I really enjoyed reading Ryann's POV. I was able to connect more with her now that we finally got a better understanding of what she's dealt with in her past. Everything with Ryder finally comes to light and it was not what I expected. It's frustrating knowing what his family put him through without giving him a chance to prove himself and his innocence. The chemistry between these two is just as i ...more

The was much potential for angst, heartache, lies and deception (just to name a few) but there was a resurgence of insta-love that didn't seem real to me. The storyline and plot had so much going for it, but even the resolution came too conveniently for my taste. Overall I enjoyed the chemistry between Ryann and Ryder but they seemed to be on a fast pace to their HEA that a lot of what could've made for a terrific story just wasn't there. ...more

3.5 Crazy Ass Stars!!!

I did enjoy reading this and getting the rest of Ryann and Ryder's story. However, I just that thrilled with it. I didn't connect with Ryann like I did when I first met her in "Ryder". I struggled with my rating because I felt like the story was rushed at times. I just didn't feel it until the end. I liked how the whole Connecticut thing played out. That was the rate saver and page turner for me.

Second Chance at true love

Ryann and Ryder have booth been dealt a crappy hand. Both with parents that either didn't care or made a series of bad choices that lead to even worse consequences.

What happens when you finally let someone in? What happens when you stop trying to run away so you won't get hurt?
