It was supposed to be an innocent night, celebrating my brother’s birthday. Nothing was supposed to go wrong. We’d vowed to be on our best behavior after all . . .

But it only took one rowdy night with my brothers to flip my world upside down. One unlucky encounter saddled us with a family curse and the promise of doomed relationships. I laughed it off immediately. “Yeah, r

Everything seems more real, more alive, just like the feeling in my heart, pounding, reminding me that no matter how often I deny it, the woman in my arms has a profound effect on me. Like I’ve come back to life after a long stint in purgatory.

With each book I read by Meghan Quinn, I become more in awe of her writing talent. She truly has a gift! THAT SECOND CHANCE was simply perfect! I loved the Hero, the Heroine, their friends & family, and the beautiful

Griffin traveled to New Orleans to celebrate his brother's birthday. It was supposed to be a fun night for the Knightly brothers - what could possibly go wrong ?! 😬

But a creepy encounter with a palm reader destroyed everything as she cursed them with the curse of love ... 😱

THAT SECOND CHANCE (Getting Lucky Book 1) by Meghan Quinn is a new contemporary romance set in quaint, small town Port Snow, Maine. This is the first book, hopefully of four, featuring the Knightly brothers and their search for true love after being cursed by a fortune teller in NOLA.

Ren Winters is lucky to be alive. After surviving a chain reaction crash on an L.A. freeway and a year of recovery, she is ready to move on with her life and

So many good things in this book! I love when a story is set in a small town, especially one in Maine. The author described this touristy town so well that I want to live there and I want to get to know each and every member of this town.

Another bonus was that the hero had 3 brothers and a sister who all butted into his life constantly. They were a fun addition to this book and I can't wait until we get a book on each of the brothers.

Our main couple, Ren and Griffin were adorable together. As

I absolutely freakin' loved this first book in the new series about small-town Maine's Knightly brothers. It reminded me a bit of a sexed up (and a bit humerous) version of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series. I loved getting to know each of the four gorgeous brothers and can't wait to read each of their stories!

Briefly, this one is about Griffin--who is the future owner of his family's confectionery shop. He's also a volunteer fire fighter, and that's how he meets the pretty, quirky, adorable Alge

Another solid read from Meghan Quinn.
This one appears to be a first one in a series about four brothers finding love and breaking a curse, a broken love curse, that was cast upon them some time back.
This book ends by giving us a glimpse of what is to come next and it looks promising.

You know listening to this audio book is like going for vacation. Destination idyllic tiny place where you only have beautiful serene scenery. Days and days that beautiful scenery is all you get. And the biggest excitement is watching a turtle/ goat/ cow crossing a street.

I don't hate the book but I don't like it either. I guess I am expecting more wit from Miss Quinn. After all she is the author of The Virgin Romance Novelist which I love very much. Hey we got all the small town culture, food,

Let me say this before I go into my review...I LOVE MEGHAN QUINN. I genuinely do. I adore the effortless humour she brings to her writing...
So, that’s probably the reason that this book didn’t blow me away. The Knightly brothers have an awesome connection and I loved their banter...but that’s about it. I just felt like I was reading...and reading...and reading, yet not an awful lot was happening, THAT SECOND CHANCE is a slow burn with low to very little drama, so if that’s your thing, then great

This was my first Meghan Quinn book. I know, I know. I’ve been living under a rock. This book had a very sweet romance, a wonderful family aspect, and kept me wanting more.

Let me first just say that I loved the world that Quinn created here. Everything seemed so cute and quaint that I really need this town to be real. She took her time in describing this New England atmosphere that I would love to experience firsthand.

Hands down my favorite part of this book was the family aspect. The Knightly f

I absolutely loved this small town romance! The setup was amazing and the characters are perfection!

I want books for all the brothers! It’s an utterly charming read.

Here’s what I loved:
Griffin and Ren are perfect for one another. She’s new in town. He wants to escape the sorrow of his past. They truly bring out the best in each and help one another get past obstacles blocking their path to love. I was completely engrossed in their story from beginning to end.

We got a little snippet of the Knightly brothers in Two Wedding Crashers so I was so glad they get their own series. Griffin is absolutely yummy. He is still dealing with a huge loss and doesn't want any entanglements. Ren crashes into town, literally, and his life is never the same. The scene of him helping her was so vivid and funny. Griffin fought his attraction so hard....fortunately for Ren it was a losing battle! Great start to the Knightly Brothers series! ...more

If you've read Quinn's Dating by Numbers series, particularly the second book in the series, Two Wedding Crashers, then you'll be familiar with the town of Port Snow and the Knightly brothers. Quinn said that these four brothers would all be getting their own stories, but when that was going to happened remained up in the air. Now a

I haven’t been THIS delighted in a book in a while! That Second Chance is one of the most charming romances I’ve ever read. It’s set in the small town of Port Snow, Maine, and legit, Meghan Quinn wrote this small town with so much heart that I wanted to move there.

I want to visit Port Snow, Maine. Without a doubt, during the summertime. I want my house to be near the beach, within walking distance of the local library and coffeeshop.

That Second Chance was an enjoyable read about Mainers tucked away in the northeast corner of the US. From newbie, Ren Winters, to Griffin Knightly and the Knightly clan. I found an entertaining rapport between the importance of family and relationships and the power of humor.

“Were you being romantic?” I look over my shoulder.
“I was being romantic as shit.”

Ren Winters didn’t know that the day a moose stepped in front of her car, it would put her in the path of Griffin Knightly, a guarded man, who had suffered a life-changing tragedy, and just how he would change her life. We didn’t know how much we would fall in love with Port Snow, the Knightly’s, Ren and all the characters in this charmingly engaging and swoony story!

We adore Meghan Quinn’s stories and her love

This is my first Meghan Quinn book which really surprises me because I have a lot of her books and audio books but she hasn’t been an author I just go towards.

Since this one is fairly new and the audio is on Kindle Unlimited, I finally decided to pop my cherry.

That Second Chance book is okay. It’s nothing out of the ordinary and I don’t really have anything fussy to say about it. I liked having it on the background, but towards the end I got kind of bored and sped up the speed a

That Second Chance by Meghan Quinn is a story like nothing I've read from her before.

What starts off as brothers going out for a weekend of partying and celebration suddenly turns into a curse. From there things really take off.

There are some really sad moments. Some moments of family fun and laughs. A great leading couple. And a story that was just overall a really good read.

One of my favorite things about this story was the well developed characters. I really felt like I got to know Griffin an

This was a typical white-couple-romance, nothing too special but not bad at all especially with the small-town setting. The audiobook was a blast to get through, and the setting of the cutest town of Port Snow, Maine was just the escapist thing I needed.

The hero was dumb sometimes, and the MCs were a bit too perfect and literally had no flaw to their appearances, personalities and hobbies 😂 But the family banter in this was hilarious and I wanted more!
A palm readers curse, wild ride of a wonderful romance. First is a series. On to the next!
