Moving onto Book #6 in the Internet Famous Collection we meet Braxton Knight, a celebrity chef, and this tale of Cam Johns is based loosely on Rapunzel. I have to admit I was a little confused at first as the book is set in two different periods. We have Braxton now where he is trying to get another second chance with Senara whom he slept within a no-strings relationship during a dark time when the love of his life - his first love Phoenix died. Now three years later he is becoming very successf ...more

Cam Johns has a unique ability to twist a fairy tale. I loved this Rapunzel retelling about the girl trapped in a tower by (can't tell you that... you have to read it) and the chef who fell for her. It was heartbreaking at times and it kicked me in the gut when the twist hit, but I'm a fan of those kind of stories—the ones that make you feel the emotion. It's beautifully written and so worth the read.

Seconds (Internet Famous Collection #7) puts a unique twists with a dark retelling of the Fairytale Rapunzel. I absolutely loved it. Intricately weaved with heart-rending moments and laughter at times. I was drawn to the characters and the storyline. I loved the arrangement with the letters written to celebrity chef Braxton Knight.
A beautiful dark retelling with a jaw dropping twist.

Second by Cam Johns is fairy tale retelling of Rapunzel.

I LOVED how different this retelling was! I love the dark vibe of it. It has a great balance of drama and sexiness. I really enjoy Miss Johns storytelling and the way these characters seem to incite such feelings and emotions while you’re reading. I found myself tearing up and then bawling at some of the scenes. Ah good times! I anxiously await what’s next from this author!! I give this 5 stars!

Seconds is definitely an original modern day telling of Rapunzel with a dark twist, and I never saw it coming. There are three people that I'll name but that's it because this story is so much better when you go in blind.  It surrounds Braxton, Phoenix, and Senara, but it's not a love triangle per se.  The talented Cam Johns brought the thunder with this story, and I'm still not over it as the book hangover was intense.  There's angst for days leading to my heartbreak, so obviously it really hit ...more

Once I started this book, I couldn't stop reading until the end because I had to know what happened to Phoenix and why. The book begins with Braxton opening a new restaurant and being crappy to his sort of girlfriend, Sen and her leaving him with the wish that a woman would come along and rock his world and upset his orderly existence and that she would be around to see it. Then we are take to Braxton's session with a therapist and dealing with his loss of Phoenix and why things happened the way ...more

♥️🌼Sometimes, Life is All About Second Chances🌼♥️
I have been reading books written by Cam Johns from the very beginning...and I have always liked her writing style and her imagination...and she hasn’t written a book yet I didn’t love....♥️🌼
In Seconds, this author has given us an original story about forgiveness and second chances and redemption... There are 3 main characters in this book, but it’s not about a ménage and there is no cheating.....I promise you’ve not read this story before...The c

This was another solid offering from this series. Braxton is a celebrity chef who is struggling with overwhelming grief and losing his way. The story is told with a series of flashbacks that gives you insights into his relationship with Phoenix. This side of the story was raw and heartbreaking. Senara was someone who came into his life in the midst of his turmoil. Will Braxton be able to move on and can he make room in his life for another relationship.

Thank you for the privilege of reading thi

“A wonderful retelling of the classic fairytale of Rapunzel. I was excited about the idea of a retelling of this classic story. I’m pretty sure it was my first retelling of this fairytale or at least I can’t remember other. Anyway I absolutely adore the darkness of this story. We had drama with some twisted situations and the perfect amount sexiness. It was my first book of Cam and I really liked how the story developed and the personalities of all the characters. A great addition to the Interne ...more

Wow, just... wow! Seconds by Cam Johns is the sixth instalment in the internet famous collection, it is a modern retelling of Rapunzel. I was a little confused with the story at the beginning but once it clicked and I got further into it I just couldn’t put it down.

Add in the epic twist at the end and this is a truly enjoyable read that has you hooked.

Braxton’s character had so much depth and there were so many mysteries woven into the storyline.

I definitely recommend this book. Cam Johns has

I’m not generally a person that likes reading in the past but dang it this book tugged on my heart. So well written and a great Rapunzel retelling. I didn’t see the end coming at all and for the whole last chapter my eyes and mouth wide open, super shocked. It ended so fast, but it didn’t really leave me wanting more, there was closure, which I appreciate.

Strong women. High Profile Situations. Dangerous Love. Prepare to get hooked on the Internet Famous Collection. Johns refuses to be hearts and flowers. Seconds gives the heart a reality check with some hard truths and heartbreaking romance. Braxton and Phoenix aren't meant to a fairytale fantasy, but a wake - up call that makes an impression.
Marianela Aybar (Mari Loves Books Blog)
This is one Rapunzel retelling I didn't see coming. I like the twists and it's somewhat dark at times; but it has steam and passion and some laughable moments. It's different and I like that. I can't say more or it will give up too much but be prepared. This is not your typical fairy tale.

This story about Braxton had some pretty big highs and lows. You read of his heartbreak and then the story starts. He's trying to find acceptance and finding his way out of grief and to a second chance. It was emotional and uplifting too.

This book was a beautifully written retelling of a classic fairytale Rapuzel. The characters were well written. It has the right amount of steamy scenes mixed with a little drama. It balanced out greatly. It gave me a little bit of all the feels. This book was all that and then some. 😍💖💖

Wow!

Cam did an awesome with this story! Braxton is wrecked with the loss of Phoenix. His life is crumbling. It takes a lot for him to bounce back from. His need to find the truth of her death helps him to find a love he didn’t think possible. And omg the ending is not what I expected!!! Must read!!!

Seconds is Book 6 of the Internet Famous collection. This was a very different type of story set in two different periods of time with a dark twist. Don't get me wrong, I've read much darker stories but did want to clarify that this isn't a light, rainbows, and unicorns story either. Unexpected twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat. Great addition to the series!


Mindy Chase-selder
Wow!! This one was a heartbreaking, gut wrenching, tear jerking retelling of Rupunzel. Braxton has gone through so much pain and heartbreak, having a hard time trusting others especially women. Having to important women (Senara and then Phoenix) come into his life, I could not put the book down until I found out what happened with each of them. When we find out Phoenix's story I couldn't help but Cry for her and for Braxton. Such a horrible loss of life. Thankfully Braxton had a support system t ...more
