Take Two is a second chance romance that gives you a little bit of everything from laughs, steam, passion and drama. Liam and Nya were once happily married until bad decisions, lack of communication and getting your priorities wrong destroyed it all. Fast forward years later and a birthday wish by their child has these two right back where they started as husband and wife. Liam pulls out all the stops to show Nya that he will do anything to right the wrongs of his past bad decisions. Their story ...more

Very cute

This is a second chance story and they have been separated for many years and they get remarried. The hero is swoon worthy for sure. He's hot and a wonderful father and very funny. I just really enjoyed his sense of humor. Nya the heroine was not my favorite person at first but By ended up liking her. She wanted the divorce and she definitely had lovers in the 7 years they were apart. I don't know about him but it really wasn't something that bothered either of them so I put aside my di

4.5 Stars!

One of my all-time favourite tropes is accidental marriage. I don’t know why; I think it’s the fact that the couple have no choice but to get to know each other. Whether it’s ex’s, friends, enemies or strangers, the marriage usually starts as a drunken mistake and slowly but surely turns into love the longer they spend together and open up. I love how they don't expect it and it almost blindsides them, it makes me happy when they realise their HEA has been there all along.

We’ve all done it right? Gone to Vegas for some fun and woken up next to a guy, married. No? Okay I don’t actually know anyone who has done this but I’ve definitely seen it in movies and read about it in other books. It really does set the scene for a story to reveal itself though.

Nya wakes up in a hotel room, newly married to her ex-husband Liam. This has to just be a bad dream, surely. There is no way she would make the same mistake again. Truth be told, she never really stopped loving Liam wh

Who says opportunity doesn't knock twice?
Once is a mistake, twice is the universe slapping you in the face saying- Take Notice. Take Two!
Nya Perez is back with her ex-husband Liam watts with no recollection of how she ended up with him...AGAIN
Maybe something to do with their daughters birthday wish😮!!


For better or for worse, they're back again and they plan to ride it out. Only Liam has other plans 😈
Their road won't be easy, lots of HARD work to be required...

Getting reunited with an ex-husband has never been so hilariously sassy! Take Two is without a doubt my favorite Heather M. Orgeron romance. She packs in all the usual laughs and steam and feels, but cranks all of these elements up several notches. Again and again, this author delivers unputdownable reads. Once I start, there’s no stopping. I couldn’t get enough of Nya and Liam! THIS BOOK WILL TICKLE ALL OF YOUR FANCIES!

This second chance journey takes off at a gut-busting pace from page one. I
"Of course, there is a cake. What's a wedding without cake? The first time you and Liam eloped, we threw traditions out the window. That union was cursed from the start. Not this time. This time we dot all of Ts."

Even though this book is not like what I usually read AT ALL, I found myself fully immersed in this lighthearted, second-chance story. There was no vampires, no shifters, no magic, no petticoats or cravats, yet I still found myself entranced by our goofy hero Liam and our jaded hero

This is a second chance romance rom-com that was a very easy going read. It was lighthearted, fun and well written. What did make this story stand out was the humour and the constant banter between Liam Watts and his ex-wife Nya Perez. When these two charismatic characters got started, in fact, they never stopped and it was a constant source my giggling out loud.

I loved the feisty strong willed woman that Nya was, being Latino she had an answer for everything and a temper not to be messed with.

Has he lost his damn mind? Has this idiot forgotten that we’ve been over since our now-preteen daughter was barely walking?
“There’s no way I married the same mistake…twice!” I shout, breaking away from him to pace the enormous room.
Great. I cross my arms on my chest. “You married me for sex?” “Now, we both know I didn’t have to marry you for that.”
I’ve been paying for that stupidity for nearly ten years.

Take Two is not your normal reconciliation of Ex's by any means. Orgeron took this trope, and put a spin on it. Trust me when I say it was the BEST spin. Take Two was a hilarious Rom-Com that still has me laughing from the crazy antics. It is so hard to find an actual Rom-Com that makes me laugh, and this author accomplished that by leaps and bounds. The witty banter was priceless and so graciously thought out. It complimented the characters personalities to a T. There was not one time the witty ...more

A firecracker of a romance, at once tender and hilarious, page-turning and full on swoon.

Need a quarantine crush? Liam Watts is everything single s3xy thing you could want in a romance. If you do nothing else to soothe your quarantined soul, you must read Take Two, a uniquely s3xy, deeply resonant, hopelessly romantic comedy. I could not have loved this book more. Liam’s reluctant soulmate Nya, is whipsmart and complicated, broody and living in full on denial over why she’d drunkenly remarry her

SWOON ALERT! This second chance romance brings ALL THE FEELS and a whole bunch of laugh-out-loud moments. No one does rom-com and brings out all the emotion like Heather! Liam is alpha sexiness and Nya is all sass! You will LOVE them!!!

This is a very good and easy to read second chance at love story.

Heather M. Orgeron will take you straight into Nya and Liam’s relationship, with their ups and downs, funny banterings, and sexy times.

Liam and Nya get married in Vegas for the second time to make their daughter’s birthday wish come true. Will their get their happily ever after this time? Or will they are up for a new heartbreak?

I recommend to read this novel if you are in dire need of a lovely romantic story and a good giggle.

Take Two was a sweet and sexy second chance romance. It was a romantic comedy at its best and had me laughing in several spots.

Liam and Nya are a divorced couple that share a daughter and wake up re-married one day because it was their daughter’s birthday wish. They agree to give their marriage six months. Liam has never stopped loving Nya or wanting her back and he is determined to make this marriage last.

Liam is swoonworthy. He loves his family so much and would do anything for them. He regret

Second chance romances are definitely one of my favorite tropes, so when I read the blurb of Heather M. Orgeron’s new release, Take Two, I was all about getting Liam and Nya’s backstory and then reading about how they found themselves with an impromptu wedding and a take two when it comes to making a go as not only a newly married couple but as a family - one that was their daughter’s birthday wish.

I’m all for feel good stories, and Liam and Nya’s book is exactly the kind of swoon worthy romcom

5 Star Review Take Two by Heather M Orgeron
When I read the blurb for this book I was intrigued. Nya Perez and Liam Watts have a tangled and complicated relationship, he was her first love, the father of their daughter, Ellie and is now her ex husband.

This was one of those books that I didn't want to put down and is a great example of romantic comedy at it's finest. I spent a lot of time laughing so much my stomach hurt. There were oh so many snort out loud moments that my husband thought I was

I fall more and more in love with Heather M Orgeron's writing with every book! These characters made me fall head over heels in love with them and their story. Nothing worth having is ever easy. Nya and Liam have history and love in spades. Their journey is complicated and passionate. I was enchanted from the first page to the last of Take Two! ...more

Oh the laughter, the banter, the frustration! The deliciously sexy throwdowns! THIS was the combination of everything I was hoping for and as ALWAYS Heather delivers!

Nya Perez is this sassy, beautiful Latina and I love her fierce determination to resist her irresistible ex, err...well no longer ex-husband.

Nya knows better than to give her ex-husband a second chance. But when she wakes up in Vegas in a wedding dress and a ring on her finger, she knows she's doomed. After all, she can't not want to give their daughter the wish she made on her birthday - for her parents to be married and a family again like when she was a baby. So she agrees to 6 months to appease her daughter. She has no plans on letting him have her heart again, though. But you know what they say about the best laid plans.

This is an author you must put on your TBR list!

This is a spectacular romantic comedy that gave me all the feels!  If you are looking for laughter, heat and a bit of angst, look no further!

This is the story of Liam and Nya.  This is a true second chance romance.

Nya is a spicy Latina with no room for bs! She feels her relationship with her ex-husband is the way it's going to be, an awesome friendship and a perfect co-parenting team.  But deep down she still is holding a torch for Liam, but the pa

Orgeron has, with this book, not only cemented that "ex's trying again in a rom com situation" is my new trope du jour, but has solidly affixed herself as one of my favourite authors.

Not only does she take tropes that might be tired out and completely spin them on their heads, but she makes you fall in love with her characters, even the smallest of side characters, right from chapter one.

This is one of the sweetest and most hilarious second chance romances I've read in quite some time and I thin
It’s not every day you read second chance romance between a husband and wife who have already been married and divorced from each other. That alone piqued my interest because it was something new - and knowing how this author writes, I knew it was going to be nothing short of excellent.

I’ll be honest, second chance romances aren’t always at the top of my reading list, but I was absolutely blown away by Liam and Nya. This book had both heart and a heap of humor. If I had a man like Liam - I’d pr

This was such a cute second chance romance! Help me not think about how horrible this week has been and that was amazing. Only critique I would say is everything was a little fast paced and Nya did get on my nerves a little.

Another great book by Heather!! While it has its funny moments it wasn’t as packed with comedy as her other books that I love.

Nya and Liam married and divorced shortly after having their daughter, many years later she wakes up married to him once again, in a half drunk haze they decided to try to reconcile for 6 months and see how it goes.

So I have to say in the beginning I was already in love with Liam and kinda angry at Nya. As the book progressed I can kind of see why she asked for the divo

Oh my GOD. Swoon Central Station.
I loved these two! Together. Seperate. As "Family". As Friends. It's all just perfection.

Heather has a way of making humor sophisticated, not way over the top silly. It's real life, real people. She gets better and better.

I know everyone will die over Liam and Nya just like I did! It was a one sitting read! I cant wait for everyone to get their hands on a copy!

Heather has done it again, with this delightfully funny second chance romance that will have you laughing out loud. I’m normally not a big fan of second chance romances, but I simply adore Heather and her uniquely charming writing style that always has me completely enraptured with her stories. And Nya and Liam story did just that, this couple grabbed ahold of my heart and didn’t let go.
