Tina – Nerd Girl Mama’s ARC Review

WOW… Annalisa Nicole does it again, Second Chance is another off the charts wonderfully written love story that you just can’t put down and is a must read.  I said this before all these books are written so well that they can stand on their own as standalone books, but you really should read them in order to get the entire picture of the depth of the Wellington family, a wonderful family that is there for each other at all cost.

This book starts out where book 2 ended without skipping a beat and is Adrian and Shay’s story.  While at the family cabin in the mountains Adrian and Shay literally run into each other while ice skating on the family pond.  This story is slightly different as in they do not become star cross lovers as they had already loved each other 17 years earlier.  Shay and Adrian were high school sweet hearts, who ran off and got married a few weeks before leaving for Boston College where Adrian had a hockey scholarship and where Shay would major in architecture. On their way to Adrian parent’s house for their last Sunday dinner, they were arguing in the car and Shay lost control.  Shay wasn’t hurt but Adrian had a severe injury to his leg, while at the hospital, Shay overheard Adrian and his family blaming her for the accident and not being able to handle the guilt she left telling no one.  Adrian was served with divorce papers couple weeks later.

This story is written from both main characters POV’s Adrian and Shay, so as you are reading the story you get to know what each of them are feeling and thinking as the story progresses.  Annalisa’s writing flows effortlessly and she paints you a vivid picture and you have no trouble seeing what you read.  As always you get the continuation of Willow/Asher, Amelia/Kyle, and the rest of the Wellingtons and their extended family members lives as this story continues.  This is a beautiful love story that has you going a little more through the emotions than the first two.  There are a few tragedies, and you will get mad or angry, you will laugh and you will cry with them too.  This story has a little drama and is about overcoming tragedy, trust, loss, recovery, healing, and second chances of a first and only love.  It has a few twist you do not see coming and with that a bit of conflict, mystery, suspense, and crime.  I give this 5 stars and I recommend this book to everyone, so do not miss out on this series, go one click it today.  I leave you with the fact that again I cannot wait to read the next book about this amazing family.

Annalisa Author Pic
I am an “Indie” contemporary romance author. I live in California with my husband and two teenage boys. I love being a stay at home mom. My husband and I enjoy wine tasting and camping with our kids with our four wheelers in the middle of nowhere, where you can find me with my pink Ryder BB gun!
We have a handful of pets, a dog named Lucy (who is in my books) and a guinea pig named Flufy (my son spelled her name that way) and a cat who adopted us many years ago and has never left. She is a spoiled outdoor cat with her own two story house and a heated bed.
I never liked reading as a kid. I only started reading romance novels in the past few years. My Kindle and I are inseparable now. A thought occurred to me in December of 2012 that maybe I could write a romance novel. So I went to work with the encouragement of my husband and my sister-in-law. It didn’t take long to figure out that I really enjoyed writing.
Today I am a self published author and it has been an amazing journey. Email me at
