Publisher's Summary

USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn delivers a smart and cheeky romance about love’s power to lift hearts...and curses.

It was supposed to be an innocent night, celebrating my brother’s birthday. Nothing was supposed to go wrong. We’d vowed to be on our best behavior after all...

But it only took one rowdy night with my brothers to flip my world upside down. One unlucky encounter saddled us with a family curse and the promise of doomed relationships. I laughed it off immediately. “Yeah, right,” I thought. “A love curse. Ha!” 

Boy, was I wrong. 

Word spreads quickly in a town like mine; rumors about that night soon made us the most eligible yet untouchable bachelors in Port Snow, Maine. As a subject of endless gossip and speculation, I could kiss my dating life goodbye. 

It would have stayed that way if Ren Winters, the new girl in town, hadn’t crashed into my life. Brave, beautiful, and smart - her vivacious thirst for a fresh start has given me hope that maybe, just maybe, I can have one too. 

Everyone wishes for that second chance...but could this really be mine?

When love overcomes a curse...

The Knightly brothers were celebrating the 21st birthday of the youngest in New Orleans, when an unfortunate drunken accident results in a curse on their love lives. They think nothing of it until the oldest, Griffin, experiences a devastating loss. Now everyone in town believes that the Knightly bros are cursed and stay away. Ren is the new girl in town...she’s moved from CA to Maine to regain control of her life after a life threatening car accident...and to take the position of algebra teacher at the local school. She didn’t count on a moose encounter that sent her car into a tree...seriously! Ren meets the hunky volunteer firefighter, Griffin, when he rescues her from the car...in the tree. Ren befriends the aloof Griffin and he reluctantly lets her in. But can Griffin get past the guilt of ‘the curse’ to find love again? This story was engaging, funny and oh so cute. I’m looking forward to Rogan’s story next!!!

That Second Chance

This was a first for me by this author and these narrators and I am shocked at how well I loved it. The story will catch your attention and keep hold and the way the narration is done they bring you into the story. Griffin and Ren are awesome together I mean she literally crash landed into his life and stirs him up in a big, big way. His story will break your heart but it will also mend as the story goes on. Ren is sweet and courageous I kind a love the way she is all soft but also fierce but it took getting away from her parents for her to see her own inner light. I am also a big fan of the side stories or families in books it makes it feel like a well rounded story and who doesn’t love to hear about other people’s families. The dynamic of brothers and how they give each other heck I love it and I want more. I also want them all to get a HEA so I will be grabbing every book ever in this series. Again glad I took a chance on these narrators because I would have missed out on a great story and some new narrators I will be keeping an eye out for.

Funny, sweet and adorable.

In true Meghan Quinn fashion this book is funny but this one has a serious note to it. The narration was good.

Love the family!

As always, my reading got so far ahead of my reviews, that by the time I sat down to review That Second Chance by Meghan Quinn , I realized it just wasn’t fresh enough in my mind to do a good review. So I grabbed the audiobook for $1.99 and listened to the audiobook to refresh my memory, and liked it even more on audio! Celebrating a birthday in NOLA the four drunken Knightly brothers end up on the wrong end of a curse from an angry fortune teller. “From this day on, your love will be broken. It isn’t until your minds have matured that the weight of this curse will forever be cured.” When heartbreaking tragedy occurs just days later, Griffin blames himself and the curse. In fact, the whole town of women stays far, far away from the handsome brothers so they aren’t the next victims of the curse. Two years later Griffin occupies his time running his family’s tourist store in the picturesque town of Port Snow, Maine, as well as being a volunteer firefighter and head of almost every town committee. Ren Winters almost died a year ago in a car crash in LA. She survived and is ready to start a new life away from her helicopter parents, as the algebra teacher in Port Snow when a Moose decided to run her off the road. Luckily, the oldest Knightly brother is on duty and rescues the hysterical Ren from her smashed car. “Should I thank him for his services? Ask him out? See if he wants to be my Tarzanlike nurse?” Ren can’t believe her luck. She is renting a house a few doors down from the handsome Griffin and he becomes her first friend, introducing her to the town of Port Snow. They develop a close friendship, but Griffin won’t put another woman in danger of “the curse” so he stays away romantically. The Knightly family has captured my heart and I can’t wait to read about them all. It was one thing I really loved about the story, the closeness of the siblings. “Griffin, I hate seeing you so alone, it hurts my heart.” Taking a deep breath, I plaster on a fake smile. “I’m not alone, I have you fools.” Poor Griffin. He is so tortured over the curse that he can’t relax and enjoy falling in love. "My heart hammers so goddamn rapidly that it almost feels like I’m about to have a heart attack as I close the last few inches. All I want is to treat myself this one time, to see what it’s like to indulge in the woman who captured me the moment she appeared in my life. All I’m asking for is this one moment, this one instance, when I can forget about the past, forget about the curse, and live the life I wish I could have." This was a very slow build-up but it totally worked for the story. My biggest issue is that there was a bit of a twist that ruined the story a little for me and just seemed very convenient and manufactured. Still, as always, I love Meghan’s writing and can’t wait for the next in the series. "I think it's time you put your past behind you and start living in the present, because if you don't, you very well might miss out on something incredibly special." Likes: •The crossover from Two Wedding Crashers (I loved that book!) •It’s nice when the hero isn’t a playboy. •I love the town of Port Snow! We used to go up to a town like that in Maine every summer and eat lobsters on the rocks by the ocean. •The relationship between the siblings (actually the whole family) was real and fun with banter, love and snark. •Great pacing, I loved the slow burn. •Good tease for the next book without it being too much. •Sweet and light humor that wasn’t overdone. Dislikes: •This is so hard to talk about without spoilers, but the twist in the story is so manufactured it kind of ruined it for me in a few ways. Though it still could have happened, I would have liked that much more if it were an epilogue. •I just didn’t feel the Meghan Quinn magic. It was a light romance, but not an LOL romance. The Narration: William LeRoy did an amazing job doing all the brothers - especially in texts between all of them. How incredibly hard to read that through in 4 voices without any hesitation! With fresh new voices, the narration made me enjoy it even more the second time through. The Down & Dirty: Meghan Quinn is one of my top 5 authors so I get excited for every one of her books, especially the romcoms. While I enjoyed That Second Chance, it wasn’t my favorite of her books. I felt like it was missing a little of her teenage-boy humor that I love. I really liked it both times I read and listened, but there is a twist that took away from the story for me and would have worked better for me if it happened after the story, in the epilogue. Still, I love the town of Port Snow and all the Knightly family and I can’t wait for That Forever Girl in August. Rating: 4 Stars, 3.5 Heat, 5 Narration

Unnecessary cursing

Audible should rate titles as G, PG, R, X. This title would’ve been such a great love story if I could’ve gotten through all the f words and GD’s! So unnecessary for casual conversation which took away from the story. Who says the f word to describe everything from good to bad and in between!

a cute romantic story

Typical small town meddling drama but the story was wonderful. The characters developed so well and were relatable. I enjoyed it.

LeRoy can melt you heart with his voice!

This has to be one of the best love stories I have read in a long time. No antagonists, no ridiculous drama, no psychos, simply pure romance. Quinn's writing is funny and smart, her characters believable and lovable, and the suspense within the relationship as their love grows made me want to pick up the book at every chance. Just enough spice to make it memorable. With the world in chaos, this book was a true port in the storm!

Heartfelt love

Griffin and Ren are the perfect match, but he’s stuck in his head. The curse is real to the brothers and he self sacrifices at every turn thinking it’s the curse causing him and his loves problems. I enjoyed this book and the narration was amazing. Both narrators did a fantastic job of bringing out the life in the story and the feelings the characters were feeling.

2.5 stars - This book tried very hard, but failed for me

I found this book a bit of a slog, and the humour just fell completely flat. I got to the end somehow. It’s clear the author has thought the story out, but it just misses the spark that is needed in the writing style and the telling.
