Review: Second Chance at Forever by Mary A. Wasowski



I thought I would try something different with this review. My memory is so shoddy and I'm always left with lack luster reviews since I forget half the crap I wanted to say. This book deserves every glorifying moment and I hope I do it some justice. I finished book one on Monday and felt this overwhelming NEED to read this one as soon as possible. I'm not normally a marathon reader but Reese and Walker's story touched my soul so deeply that I had to have it. I was prepared to beg for it and was so thankful to have it sitting in my mailbox yesterday morning.

After the last book left me emotionally crippled, I look forward to seeing what was in store for these two. The bonus prologue fast forwarded 17 years. 17!!! I couldn't wrap my brain around that. I felt this empty sadness for the two of them. I wanted to know why they didn't go after each other, not knowing my questions would soon be answered. How much heartbreak and these two endure? I'm not even 15% through and I'm hit with two more zingers. I don't think my heart can handle this. I'm sitting here anxiously waiting for the moment these two are going to meet again. The turn of events that lead up to their chance encounter are astounding! It felt like coming home. I'm so giddy I'm like a happy clapping seal!

At this point I'm still recovering from the whiplash from book one. Emotions are running high in this book. I'm so happy for the chance for these two to get their happily ever after but at what cost? You know what....it doesn't matter. I will root for these two any day. I just finished the book about 5 minutes ago and for the second time this week I'm crying my eyes out. At least my heart is not shattered this time around. I didn't think there was any way to top the emotions I felt in book one. Damn, I'm crying again. GOD what can I say about Walker? He's so frickin perfect. Can I just grab him out of the pages and keep him forever?

I have to share these quotes from the book because I'm a sucker for Walker. And might I add that I NEVER highlight as many passages as I have with this one. Oh boy! Here you go:
"Keep the stilettos on and your eyes open. I want you to watch me make you come"

WHAAAAAT I just about creamed myself. Excuse me while I make myself putty in your hands.
"I knew I could never be without her again. Reese was my drug, and I will always crave her."

Seriously? Can this man get any sexier? I'm prepared to beat you all off of him with a bat.


Mary Wasowski is the queen of mastering many tasks. I call New Jersey my home where I share my life with my husband, and our three amazing sons. Writing was my way of expressing my words that sometimes I couldn't say. My journals were filled with the rants of a teenager finding her way, and eventually they turned into poems, and short stories. Joining the indie community of so many talented writers has been a wonderful experience. I am so thankful for all of the love and support I have received.

Life can take you down many different roads, but I truly believe this is where I am supposed to be now. I want to inspire my boys to never give up on your dreams. I never did, and here I am. I am officially an Author.

Write what you love. Love what you write. Believe in your story. You have many chapters to write on your journey...
