Don't they both deserve a second chance?



Fourteen years ago, one reckless act cost Ian Sylvestry everything, including the girl he planned to marry. Since then, he has fought hard to turn his life around. Returning to his Baltimore town after serving a prison term was the first step. Winning back Maleah Turner's trust is a far more daunting challenge. From their first sparks-flying reunion, it's obvious they still have powerful feelings for each other. In fact, they might be even stronger together now. But if their second chance is going to work, Maleah has to believe that Ian is a changed man. She really wants to believe…but she simply isn't convinced.

My Thoughts:
The Man She Knew by Loree Lough
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Man She Knew is a second chance romance. As well as the first book in the By The Way of The Lighthouse Series. Ian and Maleah had a modern day Romeo and Juliet romance, instead of death they ended with Ian behind prison bars. Prison for him left them both full of regret and heartbreak. Elliott the pig headed older brother of Maleah always knew that Ian was bad news and he knows he will never be good enough for his kid sister once a con always a con.

Maleah worked with special needs children. She has such a huge heart. In the works of an even she is currently planning she must get through it while working with the man that destroyed her ten years earlier. She has never been able to find another relationship that fit quite as perfect as that one. She will keep Ian at an arms length no matter what the cost to her. She can't afford to fall for him all over again. Even if watching him she sees he is great with the special needs children.

This book has every thing you could want from a clean contemporary romance. You have heartache, love, laughter, and of course the Happily Ever After. If you looking for something to just make you feel good while your reading it and keep a smile on your face this book is perfect for you.

Review... The Secret's She Kept by Brenda Novak

Novak done it again.... The secrets that are in the book is astonishing. I felt like I watching a very intense drama film while turning the pages of this book! I absolutely loved to find out all of Josephine's secrets and was quite stunned by some of them. Seeing Keith has changed so much and recovered from his addiction was a blessing. Getting to know Rocki a little more and getting inside her head. Finding out about Josephine's multiple lovers. This book will keep you intrigued all they way to the end. I couldn't put it down. I just couldn't get enough of it! I absolutely loved it. I do wish Nancy had a little more will power when it came to Keith just to show him all he had put her through. Yet when you love someone that's hard, it just shows how human she actually is. I loved my trips to Fairhaim. Take yours today!

Review.... Hometown Hero's Redemption by Jill Kemerer

Forgiveness is the only way that any of us will ever be able to truly move forward with our lives. In this book Lauren must forgive the man whom made high school horrible for her, as well as herself for a burden in which she insist is her fault. We have to realize that we aren't responsible for everyone else's actions. We can help other's but those other's have to want the help. If someone is not willing to help themselves we will be wasting our time. Lauren takes own helping a child in a profession she refused to do again. This child is damaged in more ways than he is willing to let someone in to see. The challenges she faces in this story are so inspiring with the way they are overcame. This book inspired me in many ways. As a person who lost a mother to murder at a young age Jill hit every emotion I was feeling with the way she described the grief Wyatt was undergoing. The feelings he felt toward Drew who was his guardian. The anger he felt toward his father for not…

Hello I hope you all are doing well. Today I have for you the first giveaway on my Book review blog. I am a new blogger hoping to grab your attention and entertain you with New and Early releases of Harlequin Novels! I love to read and I love to let other's know how I feel about the books I am reading.

Who do you share your books with? Who gave you your first Romance book? I have been reading as long as I can remember. I started with the Babysitter's Club and worked my way from there. My first Romance Book was the summer of my 8th grade year of school. I spent the summer in Texas with my Aunt. I had been reading V.C. Andrews Orphan Series. She took me to a used book store right down from her home. I was in absolute HEAVEN! I traded in some of my books for other's. In this trade I got A Time To Die by Lurlene McDaniel. I fell in love with Romance from there.

Today I read a wide range of books from Romance to Sci-fi as long as a boo…
