Second Chance Temptation by Joss Wood is the latest story in her Love in Boston series and as the title implies, gives a couple the chance for a redo, with better luck this time around.

Tanna Murphy was only 19 when she was involved in a serious car accident that killed her friend, the driver. In short order she ended up engaged to the man who had come across their accident, but realizing she wasn’t ready for marriage, left him at the altar. As a way of dealing with her survivor guilt

Joss Wood is one of my go-to authors... there was no chance I wouldn’t enjoy this book - right?

There was much to like:
- The lead characters were interesting and crucially, despite their wealthy and gilded lives, relatable and rounded. Joss always does such a great job with her characters and Levi (our hero in this book) is emotionally mature and rises above the simple characterisations seen in many romances. Our heroine, was less multi dimensional, but nonetheless was a fresh a

Passionate, forgiveness, hurt, pain. Love and sex made this a great add to the Love in Boston series.

4 1/2 STARS!

SECOND CHANCE TEMPTATION is book four in Joss Wood's ever steamy Love in Boston series and we have finally gotten to Levi's story! We've watched him from the sidelines as he pulled his overprotective big brother duties while his sisters found love, and now it's his turn to do an about face as the past comes back to haunt him. The story line was fresh, emotional and oh so satisfying!

If you've been following along with the series, Levi was already very familiar

I love a second chance. I adore seeing a couple get another shot to make right something that had gone horribly wrong. Levi and Tanna are a pair I really, really wanted to see get it right. The emotional undertow here is strong and treacherous. Tanna’s survivor’s guilt oozes from her pores and pervades the air around her at all times. It’s sometimes a little heavy to wade through. Coupled with Levi’s complicated history with his father, I spent most of this book wanting to hug the pair tight and ...more

Can’t help but love the Love in Boston series!

I’ve really enjoyed all of the Love in Boston books by Joss Wood, but this one was my absolute favorite. From the very beginning you felt the deep love and history between Levi and Tanna, and you could really understand her struggle with survivors guilt after her accident, and feel Levi’s hurt over Tanna leaving. The author does an amazing job of really bringing their feelings to life. You couldn’t help but want to see them overcome it all to find

Will Levi and Tanna have their 2nd chance at love
This is my 2nd book by Joss and I love the steamy interactions between Tanna and Levi. Tanna left Levi with no explanation before their wedding and headed to Europe to find herself and pay back the debt of surviving the accident that killed her best friend. Tanna’s PTSD interferes with her lifesaving job, so she returns home to get past the PTSD. Levi is laid up after an accident and gets Tanna to help him around the house because she owes h

I really enjoyed reading this book as it is all about getting a second chance and forgiveness. Tanna was in love with Levi and they were about to get married but she walked away. Neither of them were able to move on. There was heartache, sadness and so much pain and my heart went out to Tanna and everything that she has gone through. Will things work out for them or is it too late you will have to read this book to find out. Joss is an amazing author and talented writer and I definitely recommen ...more

Tanna and Levi have a pretty big past and it is one Tanna walked away from after the rehearsal dinner so no wonder he is like a viper when she turns up on his door step but now the roles have changed and he is the one hurt after an accident so Levi decides to pay her penance she has to look after him until he can move around again on his own. There is a lot of attraction and some steamy scenes mixed into this story as well as self reflection and reassessment of why you do what you do in life whi ...more

Guilt and retribution

Levi Brogan is a private, calculated man who just crashed his dirt bike and needs help. And ten years ago l, he was left by the love of his life, Tanna.

Tanna has ptsd from a crash where her friend died and she didn’t. It was the reason why she walked away from a life of privilege and Levi (she felt she didn’t deserve it and needed to be better). Now an emt, she’s back to make amends and confront her demons and explain why she left Levi.

I really liked

Well this was incredibly good 🙂. Levi and Tanna make for well suited adversaries, and how❣. The opening gambit was hilarious and head tilting 😄😄.

It was also deep and sensuous and entertaining and rich and everything you’ll need to help you escape into a world you can only imagine 💭.

There are also smooth setups for the following 📚 in the series, and it is flawlessly done 😏. Tell the gang about it, they won’t be disappointed, ‘I promise’ 😉.

Second Chance Temptation is a heartbreaking and emotional story about the love between Levi and Tanna. They are wonderfully developed characters, both heartbroken and torn over their past. The story is well written, with secrets, forgiveness, atonement, steamy scenes, and a second chance at love.

I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.

I enjoyed Tanna and Levi's story! It's a second chance story that is nicely developed and very captivating. Tanna and Levi were engaged to be married. She has second thoughts and right before the wedding leaves. Ten years later she is back to face Levi. Levi was heartbroken when she left. Now he is injured, needs a nurse and wants revenge. This is a wonderful romance.

A sweet second chance romance

Definitely a sweet second chance romance. This story showcased how we ought not judge a book by it's cover, definitely never judge or think a situation is what it is. The other person may be going through a tough situation which resulted in unwanted consequences. Loved Joss Wood's writing as usual! Good job!
