Review & Giveaway ~*~ A Lucky Second Chance by Nickie Seidler

What do you do when life doesn't go as planned?

Nobody plans to be abused. Emma Dunn certainly didn't. When life with her fiance' takes a terrifying turn, she flees to her hometown of Chicago without looking back, and her brother Kevin takes her in. Life is slowly getting better for Emma, thanks in no small part to real-life Prince Charming, Nathan Weber. He sweeps her off her feet, almost literally, and dotes on her from day one.

But when the unexpected happens and their pasts catch up with them, can their fairy tale still have a happy ending?

Even the strongest can break. Love has the power to consume, but also has the power to break.

Excerpt ~*~
“I'm sorry. I had to pinch you and make sure this moment was real.” I smiled up at him. “That was wonderful. I've felt the same way.” I was struck by another daze as his touch sent ripples of sensation down between my legs as he rubbed my back up and down. I ran my hand across his chest, feeling how tight his muscles were through his black dress shirt. “I don't know how to say this, because we don’t even know one another, but please, don't leave me.”

As if he completely understood me, he kissed me again, ever so gently on my lips.

“I won’t go, I want to get to know you, Emma.” He ran his fingers through my hair.

“You may not like what you get to know.” A tear fell down my cheek.

“Let me take that risk,” he whispered. Then tenderly, he kissed my forehead. “Come on, let’s go get some coffee. You like coffee, right?” He grinned.

“I love coffee. I need coffee.” I chuckled.

4 Star Review ~*~

What to say about A Lucky Second Chance.  I am seriously at a loss for words. There are so many elements in this story that would usually turn me off yet I was absolutely compelled to keep reading this story.  Nicki Seidler has made a fantastic splash with her debut novel and I hope to see a lot more from her in the future.

Emma has so many moments I just want to slap her, but I can still understand her after an abusive relationship, trust and intimacy of any level is difficult. Nate is just so perfect and sweet my teeth ached, yet I couldn't help but love him.

A Lucky Second Chance will take you on a wild ride of emotions with these characters who have been through so much and still have so much yet to get through.  Every time I thought the story was reaching a conclusion there was one more twist for Emma and Nate to overcome.  Nickie really kept me on the edge of my seat and quickly turning each page to see what these two would deal with next.  So even with all the elements I avoid in stories, A Lucky Second Chance is a winner.  I don't know how Nickie hooked me, but she did and I am really glad!
