Review of Love's Second Chance by L.P. Dover!!

Title: Love's Second Chance
Author: LP Dover    
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Tour Host: Lady Amber's Tours

Korinne Anders had it all. She had the perfect job, the perfect house, and the perfect husband. When tragedy strikes, her world takes a devastating turn. Six months after losing her husband to a car accident, Korinne vows it to herself never to love again. If she doesn’t allow another man in her heart, then there’s no reason for her to feel the pain of loss. This plan seems to work, but is put to the test when Korinne’s best friend can’t stand to see her suffering any longer.

Korinne’s long-time friend, Jenna Perry, has an idea and it involves helping her friend find the spark of life in her soul no matter what it takes. Korinne didn’t know that Jenna’s plan meant bringing back a past love, a second chance with the man that Korinne had to leave in college, but always kept a place for in her heart.

When Galen Matthews learns of Korinne’s loss and that she’s finally moved back home, he wants nothing more than to be there for her. The love he felt for Korinne years ago has never left him, and now he’s given a second chance to not only mend her heart of her loss, but to also continue the love they shared in the past. Will his love and determination make her strong enough to give fate a second chance, or will her fear of losing another love make her run away?
What will Korinne do when she’s faced with a love so powerful that no matter what she does there’s nowhere to run from it?



The beginning of this book had me in tears.  I couldn't imagine going through what Korinne Anders had to go through.

She's lost her husband, and she's devastated and unsure of what to do. When she moves home to stay with her parents, she's able to grieve.  Her parents aren't happy when she decides to move out, but she knows she has to move on. 

When her best friend Jenny Perry invites her to come along to an office party, she is reunited with her first love Galen Matthews.  Korinne is reluctant at first to start a new relationahip, and Galen is willing to wait.  He's still very much in love with her and knows he has to tread slowly.  She's still hurting and he doesn't want to rush her.

While Korinne slowly gets her life back on track, Galen convinces her to start working again.  Since her husbands death, she has lost her inspiriation for Interior Design.  Telling him no, he's planted the seed in her head about it.  Galen has his own ideas to get her back to work, and it's an amazing plan!!

There were reasons I kept telling Leslie that Galen was my new book boyfriend!!  He's totally dedicated to Korinne and ever date he takes her on is more amazing then the next!  He never pushes her when she gets conflicted about her feelings for him.  When she decides to take time to sort through everything regarding her husband.  He's not willing to let her go a second time.  Plus, he's totally hot!!

Once Korinne finds her way back to Galen, the two of them can't seem to get enough of each other.  One thing that keeps Korinne down, is her inability to have children.  Galen, of course, is supportive and understanding of her, and tells her not to worry about it.  

It is when Korinne is suffering from a bad bought of the flu, that tragedy strikes her again, testing the strength of both Korinne and Galen himself.  Both families stand behind her and fight for them to get through one of the toughest times they have faced.  Just when she thinks she can't handle anything more, there is some light to her going during the darkest times.

I was so happy when Leslie asked me to read this for her.  I have been almost busting keeping this review if for this long!!  Also, when I won the paperback, I was jumping up and down with glee!!  I could not stop reading this, because I had to know what happened with Korinne and the amazing Galen!  I think I may just lock up the paperback still, along with a few others.... don't want them getting damaged!!

I am an avid reader that loves my collection of books. Writing has always been a passion of mine and now I am glad that I get to share my passion with the world. I live in North Carolina and I absolutely love being a southern girl. I spent several years in college starting out with a major in Psychology and then switching to dental. I worked in the dental field for eight years and then decided to stay home with my two beautiful girls. I spent the beginning of my reading years reading suspense thrillers, but now I can't get away from the paranormal/fantasy books. I knew ever since then that if I wrote anything it would be in a paranormal aspect. Now that I have started on my passion and began writing, you will not see me go anywhere without a notebook and pen.


With each determined step, I made my way over to the man that was beginning to steal my heart … again. Fear and desire coincided within me, but I couldn’t stop. I knew I shouldn’t let him in, but I couldn’t deny the way my heart was beating for this man. It was as if all of my desires, all of the pent up emotions and feelings in my body had me desperate for this man’s touch, Galen’s touch. The man I fell in love with years ago. His eyes grew wider the closer I got, but I knew I wasn’t going to back down. I needed to feel him in every way possible, and I needed it then. In one swift move I crushed my lips to his and wrapped my arms around his neck, holding him tight. His arms engulfed me, protecting me in his embrace, but also unsure of what to do.

“What are you doing?” he groaned, breaking away from the kiss. “I thought you wanted to take things slow.”

A fire so hot burned behind those pale blue eyes of his, and I knew taking things slow wasn’t going to happen. “I don’t think I can,” I breathed against his lips.

 “Please don’t say that. I don’t think I can control myself if you let me in. I’ve wanted you from the moment I saw you, and it’s already hard enough to keep my distance.”

“I don’t want you to keep your distance.” I sighed. “I need you, Galen, and I need you now.” Those words were all it took for the fire to consume him, to consume us both.


I was so happy to be part of this tour!!  This was such an awesome book, that I can not want to read over and over again!!
