I write fairytales, but I certainly don’t live in one.
A long time ago I met my knight in shining armour. The dreamy Drew Walker. Drew showed up in the right place at the right time to free me from my train wreck of a life. I was stripping at a local club, on the run from my ex-boyfriend, a thug for one of Sydney’s largest criminal empires.
I fell for him quickly, but the timing wasn’t right and tragedy struck, destroying our chances of finding happiness together. We parted ways, and I thought that would be the end.
Five years later, across the busy room of a local bar our eyes lock. He smiles, flashing his cheeky charismatic dimples and it’s like no time has passed. Except we’re both different now. He has found fame as Australia’s sexy bad-boy pro surfer, and I’m just a humble librarian with big dreams of being an author.
Could this be our second chance at happiness together? Or are too many ghosts from the past still haunting us to ever really be able to hold onto the love we have for each other?
Is the past lost to me forever, or could Drew be my happily ever after?

Review: A second chance
The chemistry between Jenna and Drew was always off the charts but before they could act on it, tragedy struck and drove them apart. Years later they meet again, and it soon becomes clear that the chemistry between them is still off the charts. They both have issues to overcome and settle for just being friends again – but it soon becomes clear that they were never meant to be just friends.
I enjoyed reading this book, the writing is good and the story flowed. It has a little bit of everything; suspense, friendship, drama, love and lots of steam. But ultimately it is about two people working through their issues to get where they are supposed to be. Would definitely reccommend reading this one.
