I'm sure that, had I read the other books in this story, and having been already acquainted with some of the characters in this book, I would have been chomping at the bit to read this story.

As it is, this is a book which is read perfectly well as a standalone, but would no doubt be enhanced by reading books 1 and 2 first.

That said, this wasn't a bad story. It felt like a much shorter book than the number of pages imply, given that it was such an easy read.

There was little drama, although I did

Short and sweet. A bit corny, but that's okay.

I dove into this book knowing only one thing, that it’s going to be about Natasha. I trust Kate Evangelista’s writing enough that I know I’ll end up loving this book, like I did with No Love Allowed and No Holding Back. I saw how this trilogy started and I’m a little sad that it came to a close. That being said, this was a solid conclusion to the trilogy. Although, technically speaking, the books can be read as standalones. Still, I am going to miss Dodge Cove!

No Second Chances is the final companion novel in the Dodge Cove Trilogy. I read No Love Allowed and No Holding Back last year, and I was excited to read Natasha's story next.

Natasha and Jackson were inseparable until Jackson left one day without a word to anyone. Jackson thought he could leave Dodge Cove without looking back in order to pursue his dream of becoming a successful DJ. Even though he has achieved his goal and had beco

I volunteered to review an ARC.

For someone who has just read a Kate Evangelista book, I'd say my first time was okay. This book is the third in a series with characters from previous books, living in the same place–Dodge Cove, and is a standalone. There were things though that may have been clearer to me had I read the first two books but it's not something that really bothered me.

Natasha and Jackson used to be inseparable. Natasha thought he was her one true love, but then Jackson left without saying goodbye. He broke her heart. Jackson wanted to make it as a DJ, which is why he left Dodge Cove. He's successful at what he does, but there's no light and happiness in his life without Natasha. He regrets leaving everything he loved behind for the sake of his career and is going back to his hometown to make amends. However, Natasha doesn't want to spend any time with him. Wi ...more

No second chances are what Natasha told Jackson about her ex who left town without a word. It's been 6 months to a year and when she goes one last time to rid herself of him at his show in Amsterdam; it has the complete opposite effect on him. Natasha's heart was broken and there's nothing that Jackson who left her another country to be a DJ could do. When he promises that he will do anything (yes, there is a lot of groveling involved) to get her back; he keeps his promise. He shows back up to D ...more

Jackson was only following his dream when he left Dodge Cove; he didn’t mean to cause so much heartache. Unfortunately, Jackson didn’t even take the time to say goodbye on his way out of town, which left his girlfriend, Natasha, broken. Now Jackson understands the feeling of being abandoned, and he will do anything to fix the damage he c

In this conclusion to the Dodge Cove series that follows Natasha and Jackson. It was a fun and cute conclusion to the trilogy. Natasha is a character I really loved through the previous two books, her caring nature and obvious friendship with other characters in the series. It was a pleasure to read her book.

Natasha was in love before and her love left with not even a goodbye. This has left her distrusting and hurt. While she loves her family and friends she will never trust Jackson again. Jacks

"...What can I do to get her to forgive me?”
There was another moment of silence until Nathan leaned his head back, both eyebrows raised.
"Have you tried apologizing to her?”

When I first encountered this series, I honestly thought "No Holding Back" would be my favorite. Turns out, this is.
Natasha isn't your typical rich-girl-stuck-up-princess character. She's strong, emotional, and has character. She wasn't the easy girl who you could easily sweep off your feet with grand gestures.

Hi Miss Kate Evangelista! I enjoyed Caleb and Didi’s Big Mac date, Nathan and Preston confession over the lake and yet, I’m over head in heels in love with Jackson! Why does this guy only exist in your book? And I hate that I have to compete with a DoCo princess! Unfair! Haha… I cherish the first two stories from this series, but this is my favorite and I’m so glad that you ended the Dodge Cove series with Jackson and Natasha’s love story. It was too perfect! I love you to the moon and back!

I felt like this book was average. There were average characters and an average plot, but that’s all it was: average.

I had to force myself to finish reading it and I’m glad I got to find out what happened between them, but it was just. . . Boring. The plot was good but I think it could’ve been better.

A satisfying and nicely paced addition to the Dodge Cove series. I liked the tension between the characters, how Jackson kept second-guessing his impulsiveness and how everything came together at the end.

I definitely did not hate this like I did the first book in this series, but I still wouldn't say I'm really a fan of it. It was short and quick which I enjoyed, but way too cheesy for my taste.

Pretty cute read. Only thing I don’t understand is how Jackson couldn’t just pick up the phone and give Natasha a call or something.

This ending totally solidified my love for the DoCo gang and rekindled my need for second chance romances. I couldn't get enough of reading about Jax's DJing and his pursuit to win back Natasha!

Natasha and Jackson should be together, but after Jackson broke Natasha's heart she isn't close to letting him back in her life. Jackson is struggling with his career (as a world famous DJ) thanks to Natasha's absence in his life. What can Jackson do to prove to Natasha that he made the worse mistake he could have possibly made? Will Natasha let Jackson back in, especially when she hasn't stopped loving him?
A fun ending to the Dodge Cove trilogy but if I am being honest, my favorite book in this

This is probably my favorite book from the Dove Cove trilogy. I know I also said that with the other two books but I just love this trilogy so much and I am so sad to see it end. You can read this book as a stand-alone but I do recommend reading the first two books first because I love seeing the development of the characters from the beginning t

In the last book of the Dodge Cove trilogy, we dive into Natasha and Jackson’s love story, whom we already met in the previous books.

I don’t know but I didn’t really feel the book as much as the other two. It felt like something was missing, but I didn’t know what.

I also really didn’t feel Natasha and Jackson’s chemistry that much? It felt like it was just there for us to read about.

But nonetheless, it was still a good book. It had its swoon-worthy scenes, but most of it you’ve probably have alr
