Shane Maguire is back in town after ten long years away. Sinclair was the one that got away, the girl he’s never gotten over, but history is seen a little differently from Sinclair’s point of view. Shane’s appearance back in her home town shoots a mix of pain, and yearning through her body. He was gone and never looked back; Sinclair left to pick up the pieces. Now that he’s back and demanding to get reacquainted, Sinclair resolves to keep him at a distance, not risk her heart, because she’s not ...more

Sigh...I think I am chalking this one up to being more of the mood I am in than the book. This failed to keep my interest from page one. I didn't really care for either of the main characters. It took WAY too long for the misunderstanding to be cleared up. I knew what the heroine's secret was going to be right from the start and SURPRISE I was right. It was the same cliché secret found in a bazillion other romance books.

There was nothing new to be found here and because of that I just n

As a huge fan of second chance romances, I knew I had to read this book.

Samanthe Beck has been a reliable source of sweet and sexy reads. Emergency Attraction was no exception.

I truly enjoyed this novel.

Shane and Sinclair had plenty of chemistry, history, and banter between them that ensured that I kept turning pages until the very end. I think one of the most endearing qualities Shane had was his dedication in pursuing Sinclair in giving him a second chance. He pulled out all the stops. And it

I love a good second chance romance book. Shane and Sinclair had a relationship 10 years ago. They were each other's first loves and Shane was Sinclair's first. Then Shane left for the Marines and Sinclair never heard from him again, until he showed up in her small town for a job. Now, he realizes what he let get away from him and he wants Sinclair back.

Sinclair never got to tell Shane what happened to her the summer he left. He was supposed to call and get in contact with her the seco
A ten-year separation - due to circumstances that were truly out of their control - isn't that difficult to get over the moment a dance during a wedding reminds both Sinclair and Shane of the spark that had never died between them.

For Sinclair, apart from her memories of him, Shane isn't the bad boy in town who had no future to his name any longer; he's now a respected emergency manager with so much experience in doing what he does. And as impressive as it is to see what he had made of his life

I loved this book. I love all of Samanthe Beck's books. Truly. Her characters always, always make me care, make me feel, and make me happy. This time it's Shane and Sinclair, and I adored everything about them. Combined with smart writing, humor, engaging dialogue, and hot sexy times, this is another page-turning winner I highly recommend.

A sweet fast paced second chance romance!!!! Samanthe Beck has always been an author that I adore. Her stories always seem to bring a smile to my face. While I enjoyed Emergency Attraction, it was not my favorite of the series since for some reason, I couldn’t relate to the heroine. She did not interest me as much as the hero did. I did however enjoy the banter and playfulness of the book. Overall, the storyline flowed at a decent

I’m a fan of Samanthe Beck. She always, always writes heroes I want to fall in love with and heroines I would love to be friends with. The men and women of her Love Emergency series have been incredible with their easy going attitudes, strong wills, passion, and love. What has surprised me about this series is that not only has Samanthe added passion and heat, but she has thrown in heartbreaking moments.

I've really enjoyed Beck's books and had such a good time with book one-- Emergency Engagement. And LOVED book two-- Emergency Delivery. It was one of my favorite reads this year.

Emergency Attraction and I, though? Well, yall, we did not get along. No, ma'am. We sure did not.

I'll be honest here and say I'm not exactly a fan of second chance romance. If it didn't work the first time, I need a good reason as to why it will work the second time. I like this author and have enjoyed several of her books, so I wanted to give this one a chance. I admit, her reasons for this couple separating and not getting back together until 10 years later, convinced me. Their reasons were valid and that's enough for me. It also helped that Shane pursued Sinclair relentlessly when he cam ...more

I can always count on Samanthe Beck for a hot, sexy read that I can’t put down. No matter what the summary says, I always download everything she writes and if you are a fan of contemporary romance and haven’t read her, I highly recommend you drop everything and do it now.

Emergency Attraction is book 3 in a companion series that I completely missed for some reason. I will tell you that you can absolutely read these out of order and still be fine. I have already downloaded the first two and will

Emergency Attraction is a second chance romance. It's not a suspense nor is it a mystery but there's a secret that drives a bit of the plot and I really loved how that element was woven into the story it kept me anticipating and flipping pages even though I pretty much knew what it was from the start but it had me riveted nonetheless.

That's not the only thing that kept me flipping pages and emotionally invested in these characters and their story. Samanthe Beck has a knack for wr

Samanthe Beck is an author who first came to my attention with her McCade Brothers series, part of the Brazen line of erotic romances from Entangled Publishing. Not only did she turn me onto other authors writing for this imprint (Brazen books are still a favorite to this day), she quickly became an author whose upcoming releases I’d look out for. She’s got a knack for writing sexy scenes with likable characters and low angst stories; easy reads with high heat. Emergency Attraction combines thos ...more

Fun second chance romance. It's been 10 years since Sinclair & Shane have seen each other. He was her first everything and a minor misunderstanding separated them. Until Shane attends Sinclair's sister wedding.

When he laid eyes on her again he knew he still loved her and would do everything in his power to get her back. Sinclair on the other hand fought her feelings for him until she couldn't anymore. They were things that he wasn't aware of that she finally told him about. His reaction was

My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin:

Emergency Attraction is emotional, addictive, and seriously hot. I’m a sucker for second chance romances, and Samanthe Beck has delivered a wonderful one in Sinclair and Shane’s story.

Ms. Beck excels at penning swoon-worthy heroes and Shane is no exception. When he left Magnolia Grove ten years ago to join the Marines, he left his heart with Sinclair. Now that he’s back in town, he’s determined to win back her tru

I love a good second chance romance, but I have to admit this one pulled me in deeper than I expected and at first I wasn’t sure whether I’d like it. It’s been ten years since Shane left and it’s instantly clear that Sinclair is not over it. She has her reasons too, which is what made me wary. Shane is focused and determined to get them back on track, despite the long separation, while Sinclair is torn.

Yet, simply and beautifully, Samanthe Beck managed to soothe all my worries with the rare and

So, I just don't know where to start with this review. Did I like this? YES! Was I confused cause it's the third book in the series? Nope (and I'll be going back to read the first two books, soon, especially Savannah and Beau's story).

This was a second chance story about Sinclair and Shane. They were together in high school until Shane left under not so great circumstances for the Marines. Sinclair was two years younger and was left behind. She had a hard time with his absence and his lack of co

Please forgive me but when I realised the hero of this book was called Shane Maguire, I instantly had an image of the character with the same name from the British TV Show, Shameless. Not really what I wanted in my head but hey I went with it.

Emergency Attraction was a hot, fun and very entertaining second chance love story.

The storyline was well written, the plot was easy to follow and the drama was well done.

There were a few errors that needs an edit. Other than that, the book was PERFECT!! Truly flippin adorable. I started reading and realized this was part of a series. This book was so good and so well written, I didn't need any of the previous books to follow along. If given a chance I will read them of course, but only because I fell in love with the characters here. That's the mark of a true standalone.

This was a second chance romance. We all know my fondness for those LOL.

The cover and blurb pulled me into this standalone, my first read in the series, and Shane kept me hooked…
“Those lips curled into the I-dare-you grin she blamed for some of her most regrettable decisions.”
Shane and Sinclair had history that ended a decade ago. Unexpected events and a lot of miscommunication meant their reunion was anything but tranquil. The sexual tension was still there and everything unresolved between beat like a drum as Shane pushed to find t

It has been awhile since I'd read anything by Samanthe Beck. I can gladly state that I'm happy I picked up Emergency Attraction and that it did not disappoint. I almost had forgotten how much I love books by this author and how refreshing they are. I love Samanthe Beck's writing style and Emergency Attraction is no exception there.

Samanthe Beck never fails to bring us truly unforgettable, deliciously sexy heroes and she doesn't disappoint in this book. Shane was all the above and more and Sinclair was a perfect match for him. There's plenty of sizzle between them and their story is a fun ride.

The only regret Shane has is leaving Sinclair behind when he joined the Marines. He should have at least told her why but he's back now and willing to do whatever it takes to get her back. As expected Sinclair isn't willing to go al

I hate writing reviews of books. I suck at it. I never do the authors justice. And if I'm being truly honest, the main thing I want to do when I take the time to write one is just put a bunch of expletives in shouty caps. Because I don't take the time to write a review unless I'm THAT excited about a book.

But I don't think a long string of swear words is going to help anyone, so I'll do my best.
