Publisher's Summary

A second chance never looked so good....

Bobbi-Jo Barker has been in love with the wrong man for years - a man who doesn't fit into the perfect, controlled life she's created; a man who broke her heart and nearly destroyed her. So the fact that he's back in town shouldn't matter, because he's all wrong for her, or so she thinks....

Shane Gallagher, prodigal son, ex-con, and all around hellion, has returned to the small town of New Waterford not only to mend fences but to get his life back. What he doesn't count on are the feelings he still has for the one woman who can break him - the one woman who is totally wrong for him.

And yet, as Bobbi and Shane are thrown together and begin to navigate a life with each other in it, neither can deny the attraction they feel or the emotions that come with it - the good and the bad. And so the question becomes: Can these two damaged souls survive a second chance at love?

Loved Bobbie's story

This book was touching and showed the heartbreak that these two went through. The book has great supporting characters and is so well written that I could feel the emotions from the words. I highly recommend this book series and now im off to Betty's story.

Good, but very repetitive

The background story of the couples past is interesting and would be enough to keep the readers attention but there is so much that detracted from the stars rating for me.
The angst is repeated over and over to drag out the suspense, though I found it frustrating not suspenseful. I wanted to skip ahead but I made it through to the end.

The ending was disgusting and absolutely ruined the entire book for me.

Also there is a very dangerous sex scene that I hope a reader is smart enough not to try, especially if they have any medical conditions.

Narration was great

Total personality switch

The triplet sisters in this series are rather awful. They are selfish and bitchy and then dramatically long suffering. In this second book we are supposed to understand that buttoned up Bobbi Jo who has been nothing but controlled, appropriate, and all about appearances, suddenly switches to her original teenage troublemaking rebel self. I get someone getting burned by too much drama choosing to try to calm and control her life. What I don't get is the tequila swigging woman in a wedding dress, and then waking up the next day to think her jilted fiancé will think she just had cold feet. I liked Shane far more than Bobbi-Jo, and found his family story more compelling.

Good, but....

Good story, love the MI setting and the hockey aspect. I’m not a fan of the long, drawn out “why we shouldn’t, could they do this?” over and over in every single chapter. Just get on with it already.

Bobbi-Jo and Shane

An intriguing, entertaining, and enjoyable second chance romance. I like it. As always Maxine Mitchell’s narration was fantastic.

Just okay...

When it ended I was like "is that it?" No epilogue? It just felt incomplete. Okay now I really wanted to know about Shane, how can you not, book one he was an awesome friend to Billy-Jo. Anyway, his story was a little bland. For me at this time, the sex felt overdone. On to book three, hopefully we'll get an update on Shane and Bobby.

Had potential

If you can get beyond Bobbi-Jo being a wholly unlikable human being than you might enjoy this listen. She was prickly in the first book, but once she and her sister had it out and made amends she seemed to have potential to be a decent person. I was wrong.. T0his is the second in the series. The first was so much fun and so much better.

The second triplet's story.

Yes, back in 2012, I originally enjoyed this book, so when I saw the audiobooks available under the "audio escape" subscription, I was more than happy to revisit the Barker Triplets, and their madcap escapades.
We have Bobbi-Jo, the stay at home triplet, that had a relationship with the bad boy, Shane Gallagher, but had turned her life around. She was marrying the staid respectable, level headed, but dull man, that should give her the security she longed for.
Shane Gallagher had served his time and had come back, to work, to fulfill his parole commitment. To exorcise the demons of his past.
Fate had other ideas.
Great episode in a very good and entertaining series.
