Aimee’s best book yet in my opinion – a beautiful romance

Second WindSecond Wind by Aimee Nicole Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Aimee Nicole has outdone herself with this one imho. It’s a glorious second chance romance between two older MCs who never forgot each other.

The phrasing of the narrative cleverly covers a period of more than two decades but without relying only on straight up flashbacks but also through contrasting the here and now with events in their teenage years.

There is little angst in this, other than in the events of the past, and I loved that the secondary cast of characters were also strongly fleshed out and acted in a believable fashion.

Lincoln’s ex wife and kids were great, helping to cut down on the need for unnecessary plotting to drive the narrative. There didn’t necessarily need to be any tension and I was very glad Aimee didn’t use the ex wife etc to create it purely for plot points.

Once these two men bumped into each other and fate gave them their second chance, they both went for it at full tilt and the book benefited from it.

Now, that’s not to say there weren’t tensions, there were and, again, they came from realistic fears and worries on the part of both Rush and Lincoln. But they felt organic to the story and there were conversations about them instead of miscommunication!

I really loved this one, the sex scenes are hot but even hotter is the pure love which radiates out from Rush and Lincoln.

Gorgeous second chance romance

Still Your GuyStill Your Guy by Devon McCormack

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sometimes you meet ‘the one’ when you’re young and you don’t know any different and you think the world will always be laid out in front of you.

Then life conspires and sometimes it twists along the way and you lose ‘the one’ and you’re not sure your heart will ever recover. And then, if you’re one of those gifted by fate, sometimes ‘the one’ comes back and you get another chance.

This book has an occasional splutter, when perhaps the language doesn’t match up to the emotions being expressed, but otherwise it’s a gorgeous journey with two men who lost their hearts as boys growing up together.

There’s a great set of secondary characters and the world building creates a location which is as strong a character as the people.

As this is a Devon McCormack story, there’s plenty of smexy times, but it’s also emotionally connected as well as smoking hot, there is a deep aching love between Mason and Chase which seeps from the pages and wraps itself around the reader.

Stunning Jay Aheer cover too.
