Determined not to fall for the wrong kind of man again, she comes face to face with Cole Thomas. He is gorgeous, charming, rich and everything Ally swore she should stay away from.
Cole wants Ally and he will stop at nothing until he gets what he desires. Bit by bit he breaks through her barriers and takes her on a journey of love and sexual awakenings. Will her obsessed ex, who refuses to accept it’s over, or a secret Cole himself is hiding, destroy their relationship before it even gets started?
Can Ally break her own rule and explore the possibility that Cole just might be the one worthy of a Second Chance?
Seriously?!?!?! I am having a hard time just typing this review because my heart has literally been ripped from my chest, tossed on the floor, and pounced on like no body's business! Beverley Hollowed, you are an evil little genius and this next installment better come out STAT!
No Second Chances is about a girl, Ally, who is a stubborn, independent, hard headed head strong, you will only screw me over and get away with it once type of chick. I LOVE HER!! She watched her mother die while her father was out banging a woman on the side, walked in on her own boyfriend of two years getting oral sex from his assistant, and has decided she does not need anyone. She is a one strike and you are OUT type of person, and she doesn't stray from that thinking. What is the one thing, or person, that could possibly challenge such a strong willed woman??? The walking sex on legs Cole Thomas!
Oh... Cole Thomas... just hearing and saying his name makes me want to blush.
M-E-O-W!! Cole is a wealthy, Alpha male, successful, HOT, charismatic, gets what he wants, did I mention HAWT already???? man that will definitely challenge Ally's rules. He has an immediate zing when he first meets Ally and sets his sight on making her his. He schmoozes her into sex, but can he schmooze her into giving him her heart? Cole Thomas could have anyone he wanted and Ally is left wondering .... why her? She doesn't see herself the way other people see her. She believes she is just a everyday attractive girl trying to make it in a man's business (mechanic). Cole makes it his personal life goal to make Ally love him and for her to see herself the way he sees her.
The tricky part of this book is all of the baggage that Cole and Ally bring into their relationship. They zing... CHECK, the have amazingly hot sex... CHECK, but do they trust each other enough to let the other one in on their secrets? That is the true test and one they come back to again and again. Ally has a crazy ex... the douche bag that was caught with his pants down... LITERALLY and Cole has a secret of his own that he knows Ally will not understand or take lightly.
No Second Chances was a very quick read for me. I devoured this book in one sitting! I love the angst,the story line, the characters... both won my heart and while I would cheer "You go girl!!" to Ally when she would bust balls, I would also yell "I'll give you more than one chance Cole... pick me, pick me!!" I give this book4.5 stars on the knock my socks off scale and I will definitely be waiting IMPATIENTLY for book 2!!
