Description
What if love can’t heal all wounds?

Second Chances, Book 1

After too many years of secretly loving her best friend, Zoey realizes she’s been shortchanging herself. It’s time to take action. This New Year’s Eve heralds the year she’s going to tell Rob the truth. Even if he is on the road, reaching for musical stardom with his band.

Her plan is derailed when she discovers a lump in her breast—and it’s not “nothing to worry about”. How can she ask Rob to take a chance on love when her future is so uncertain?

Rob has spent his entire life chasing his dream, but the moment he hears Zoey’s voice on the phone, he realizes he’s been running the wrong race. Zoey never sounds like she’s been crying. Ever. Without a second thought, he books a flight for home, determined to give her everything she needs. A shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold…and nights of intensely emotional, passionate sex.

His biggest challenge, though, is convincing his best friend that he’s in it for the long haul. Because he finally knows what he wants, and it’s not fame and fortune. It’s her—and her love.

Product Warnings

This book runs the emotional gamut between scorching-hot passion and the pain and fear associated with cancer. Keep a box of tissues next to your glass of ice water.

This is the first book I have read from Mari Carr. Wonderful story with the ending that I enjoyed. Looking forward to reading more books from this author.

This book is absolutely amazing. It will make you cry, make you smile, and make you realize the importance of the people you cherish. Days come and go but when something tragic happens the strength one gains by those closest to them can make a world of difference. Mari Carr captured the beauty and power of love forced into a dance neither of them wanted but almost needed in order to realize the depth of emotions they had for each other. The quality she dedicated to capturing the emotional roller coaster of being in a hard medical situation such as the one Zoey and Robbie faced was astonishing. Mari Carr your writing quality shines in this book. Great job. And cannot wait for the the second book.

I always love what Mari Carr writes but she has really out done herself this time! This heartrendingly beautiful story grabbed a hold of my heart strings and kept me an emotional wreck from beginning to end. I loved everything about it, from the quirky women, who I hope will be leading ladies for future books in the series, to Rob and the steamy sex that came with him, to the terrifying facts of living with and beating something as scary as cancer. This story not only gives you something sexy to read but it also opens your eyes to the realities of life and shows you that life can be short, so don’t take it for granted. Rob is quite possibly the sweetest, most caring man I have ever had the pleasure to read about and Zoey is most definitely the strongest woman I have read about. They were such a beautiful couple and it really sucked that they finally got together in such a sad way. I mean, they were best friends for over 20 years but still, that’s a heck of a way to start a relationship. But then they fought through it and came out happier and stronger than ever so it all worked out. :) This is more than a sexy love story, it’s a heartbreaking but inspirational journey showing all women that it’s possible to overcome something as scary as the big bad Cancer. And it hits close to home for me because my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer last June. I really love that Mari wrote this book, it gives me a bit of hope and I’m sure it will give other women out there that same hope. So thank you Mari! I really can’t wait for the next in the series to come out. I’m very curious as to who it will be about. I know who I hope but we will see… But until then, check this book out and make sure you have plenty of tissues handy because it’s a tear jerker!

As posted on The Smutty Kitty 5 out of 5 Licks Serious tissue alert!! If you do not cry while reading this book you might be broken. I didn't even make it through the first chapter without crying. Most of you probably know that in addition to being a dirty book whore I also LOVE music. There is constantly a soundtrack running through my head and I sing without even realizing it. I was of course thinking of the song Fix You (the Glee version of course and it can be found here-BTW I don't own this the Glee people do and ColdPlay sang it originally please don't sue me!) And yes I just cried a little cause I watched the video. lol Anyway thanks to the addition of the musical aspect of the book it hit me even harder than usual. You can't help but want Zoey and Rob to have a happy ever after. He stays with her through all her treatment ups and downs and never gives up on her. They met each other as children and various memories are scattered throughout the book. You really feel a connection to each of them. There is so much emotion poured into this book I can't even find a way to accurately express it. In the end all of the crying was so worth reading this book. It's also the first in a series and after meeting the other women briefly I can't wait to read the rest of them!!! I can tell these are all going to hit me hard! This book was offered in exchange for an honest review.
