Book 2 in the Second Chance Duet . . .

Love isn't always about timing.
Sometimes you have to throw caution to the wind and roll with it.

I admit I wasn't ready.
I know you don't want to look at me, let alone talk to me, but please, let me explain.
Let me tell you all the ways my heart broke when you walked away.
Let me show you what our years apart have done to me.

“You’ve always had me, Sprite… you’ll always have me.”

From the moment I finished reading Then There was You, I was dying to get my hands on this book. Tessa and Rowan’s story was left in such a way, I NEEDED to see what happened between them. Thankfully, we didn’t have to wait long. I wish all authors released books this close together that have painful cliffhangers!

The timing for Tessa and Rowan to be together has never really worked out. Something was always fightin

➳The world separated them from being together but their fate is bringing them back home to finding their inner love and passion that they truly have for each other...

➳I am keeping this review short and sweet because I actually adored the second part to this novel. This one by far is my favorite for sure. I don't know how it happened that I ended up liking this book better than the previous one, but it did y'all. Rowan has never been so attractive now that he has gained that retrospective of

I craved getting to the end of this book. I obsessed over getting the conclusion of Rowen & Tessa’s story. I simply couldn’t wait.

I imagined the story going one way, then another way, and of course another way too. So when I started reading this story, the second half of this duet, I was like “Noooooo” it just can’t be this way........ here’s the thing..... it was fucking perfect the way it played out in this conclusion. That’s all I am going to say.

Book one in the Second Chances Duet totally consumed me, and this book was just as addictive as the first. I couldn’t put it down. I stayed up most of the night and finished it in less than a day. Book two picks up where the first book left off, and we get answers to a lot of questions.

One thing I learned in the aftermath of our love was that my heart can crack, break into a million pieces, and shatter like glass, but it kept beating.

MY WAY BACK TO YOU, the conclusion of the Second Chances Duet, had considerably less angst than its predecessor, which I was highly grateful for. I love a good angsty story but the first book bordered on torturous for me. After having finished it, I was left feeling absolutely no connection to

Author: Claire Contreras
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: March 13, 2018


All I can say about this book is Hallelujah!!!!!
Claire Contreras... Thank You!

I absolutely adored My Way Back To You! This book was stunning! Captivating from the very first chapter, frustrating in the most anticipating, blissful way, throughout the entire book and Sexy AF all the way through.

Honestly speaking, Tessa
3 Stars

Overall Opinion: Well....I still feel kind of meh about it all. I do feel like this could've been one book instead of a duet and better for it, because there was a lot stretched out that wasn't all that necessary in the long run. I also felt like the conflicts were resolved way too easily. Camryn and the H's mom?! I'm bummed because I am feeling the minority in not loving this duet 😔

Brief Summary of the Storyline: I'll keep this brief since this is the second book. This is the conclusion

I’m going to make this one short and sweet and I don't want to go into detail because I don't want to spoil a thing. I absolutely loved this book. Absolutely. Completely. I was completely hooked and this book consumed me. I loved how the story developed and it gave me all the feels, all of them. I love second chance romances, I just love them.

This story starts right up where the last one ended...and that's not in a good place. We get to find out what's going on with Rowan and Tessa. I do have to say that I think Claire Contreras made a certain someone suffer in all the ways he needed too although I maybe wanted him to suffer a bit more.

Those "four" years that were in the contract jump pretty quickly...thank goodness, and we can finally get to the good stuff. I didn't think it was as angsty as the first book, I guess becaus

PS: I decided to review this series as a whole. This is a combined review for books 1 + 2!

“One thing I learned in the aftermath of our love was that my heart can crack, break into a million pieces, and shatter like glass, but it kept beating.”

This series is drama, angst, and heartbreak wrapped in a sexy package of heartwarming. Two books that suck you in and don’t spit you out until the last pages. If I had one word to described the Second Chance duet it would be: INTOXICATING. From the moment I

Okay, so we all know how the first book in this duet ended right? Tessa is in Paris working in her new job and getting on with life after everything that went down with Rowan at the courthouse. And then there was that cliff hanger thing……

I wasn’t sure how she was going to handle things with Rowan and I have to say that I was dissappointed in her during her time in Paris. I understand her thinking behind her decision but I didn’t agree with it.

This is a 3.5 Star book for me. While I love second chance romance, I felt like I was missing something here. Somehow this story lacked some of the deeper emotions I was wanting and truth be told, I felt like it was all a little too easy... that this story spanned years and there wasn’t more anger frustrated me a bit. It seemed like everything was wrapped in a pretty box with a bow on it.

Regardless of that.. I did devour this book because I wanted to see what would happen. I was rooting for the
Now that is the way to end a duet! I can’t even tell you how anxious and excited I was to have this on my hands, especially with how the first book ended and left us hanging. But right when My Way Back To You landed on my Kindle, there was just no way I could’ve put this baby down once I cracked it open—I quickly got sucked back into the crazy whirlwind of Tessa and Rowan’s life. And honestly, I’m still reeling from all the emotions this book rained down on me.

Full disclosure, I was initially left feeling a bit torn about my feelings on this book. I was left a riot of confused emotions that seemed to contradict one another when I finished reading. It took me a bit to reflect on all of it, to reconcile everything I felt while reading  and the conclusion I inevitably came to was surprising, even to myself. 

First, I need to make something abundantly clear. I ENJOYED THIS BOOK. I really liked it. I actually couldn't put it down. But my inability to put it

Sorry, but FUCK NO. This follow up book was nothing but cliché after cliché, so predictable to the end. But guess I shouldn't be surprised. Rowan didn't come off that great in the previous book. Wish I can say his character improved here but to me, he was still the weak man who failed the woman he loved. Repeatedly. He's probably one of the weakest, lackadaisical, non-alpha coward I've come across in second chance romance. You would think in 4 years, he would grow a pair and really fight for the ...more

Amazingly good!!! This was a fantastic ending to Rowan's & Tessa's journey. I finished this in one sitting. It is a definite page turner. I was happy and impressed with some of the scenes. They were so touching and they hit me right in the heart.
Yes. There were some VERY tough difficult choices made by these characters but I was able to understand them and if I were in their shoes I might have done the same.

Rowan took my heart in book 1 and kept it! I love him soo much and I swooned for him so

You need to have read Then There Was You before diving into My Way Back To You as it does start right where the first book ends.

I did have my issues with the first book, Rowan just ugh, he needed a kick in the boy parts to stop him from being such an idiot - and it may be months down the track now, but he did emotionally get that kick.

Good on Tessa for not giving in to him right away! Did I agree with everything she did? Not always, but I always got why she doe

Sexy, beautifully written, and emotional, Claire Contreras has once again swept me off my feet with her addictive story telling!

Finally, we get the most anticipated conclusion to a story... ever!! My Way Back to You was a journey of forgiveness, growth, love, and acceptance. Lots has happened after the ending of Then There Was You. If you've read book 1, you know what I'm talking about (what a cliffhanger, right!?). Thankfully the wait for this book wasn't so agonizin
