Review for Second Chance Hero by Rebecca Sherwin

Second Chance Hero
By Rebecca Sherwin
'He owns me. Completely, irrevocably. He always has. My heart, body and soul belong to this man and I wouldn't have it any other way. I just hope I'm not too late...'

Two best friends. One Christmas. Unpredictable events that tear a perfect friendship apart.

Jenna Rivera changed after the night on the beach where her heart was broken and she lost everything she thought she had. Gone is the girl who was raised by the sea, replaced by the city girl she swore she'd never be.

Deacon Reid, owner of D R & Son Property Development and the town playboy spends his days avoiding everything his life was before the death of his father five years ago. After losing his dad and his best friend in the same night, Deacon went in search of the trait girls...

Five and a half years, countless one night stands and a stockbroker boyfriend later, Jenna and Deacon reunite. The past and present collide as they mask the all consuming love they feel for each other with a dangerous cocktail of anger, jealousy and lust.
Deacon makes it his mission to win Jenna back, to save her from the years of pain he caused. He swears to be her hero, grasping with both hands at their second chance at the kind of love many dream of .

In life nothing is certain, and every day must be treated as if it's your last. Can they save their love, and each other, before it's too late?

My 5 star review

     I have to start off saying that I truly love this book. I was blown away with how good this book was. Rebecca Sherwin is a very good writer, this book had my attention at page 1. Jenna the main character of this story has my heart, because I see so much of myself in her.
     Jenna is a beautiful, strong, hard-headed, independent, and a pain in the ass. She could never really get along with girls, but she was always one of the guys. Deacon is smart, sexy, delicious, and every other word you can come up that describes HOT!
     Jenna and Deacon have been friends their entire life. They played together as babies, had sleep overs, and even went to the same college. Deacon always took care of Jenna being the ultimate best friend ever. Then one night when they were both home visiting their family, something happened between the two of them. After that night their whole world changed.
     After 5 years of not speaking Jenna and Deacon reunite. Jenna has loved Deacon her entire life and tried her best to forget about him. Deacon has been in love with Jenna for years and he has been through so many trait girls to try and forget/replace her.
     Jenna and Deacon are so passionate, raw, beautiful, magnetic, and the meaning of true love. They test the limits of love....that is for sure.
     This book will have you saying What the Hell is she thinking and in the same breathe you will be saying What the Hell is he thinking. I mean I even tweeted the author and was like.....I am going to shake Jenna. This book had me biting my nails....YES it is just that good.
About the Author
I am a coffee drinking, music loving, full-time-mothering, writing insomniac. When I'm not writing, I'm reading and when I'm not reading I'm squeezing my eyes shut and willing sleep to descend.
I write about serious issues, giving the emotional turmoil a twist and adding a little humour and sarcasm. Primarily I write for myself, using the words and scenarios in my head to escape to a world where fairy tales, true love and men who don't leave their socks on the floor for days on end, exist.
My writing aims to bring problems and tragedies that people face every day, make them relatable and send a message.
If I can make one person smile, laugh or cry (with a racing heart) with my writing, then I have succeeded.
