  • Getting a Second Chance

    Jordan’s Return by Samantha Chase is a wonderful second chance story that features Jordan Manning and Rob Tyler. These two were together in high school, being each other’s first lover. Unfortunately, they had a falling out somewhat due to a lack of communication, pride, and both being stubborn. After recovering from a horrific accident, caused by her ex-husband, Jordan and her two boys spend a month in a small beach town. While there, Jordan happens to run into Rob, never realizing he lived there. This was a fun and entertaining story with loveable characters that you want to support and cheer on hoping for that happy ending. Not just for Jordan and Rob, but also for Joe and Jake, Jordan’s sons. The characters were well written and complex. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    Wow! One of my favorite reads this summer. Great characters, very likeable. Rekindling your first and learning to trust your heart again. Jordan has gone through so much, looking forward to some down time at the beach with her two sons. Not expecting to run into her first love, Rob. Rob made a terrible mistake years ago and he lost Jordan, his first love. Now with Jordan's return can they have what they use to have. Jordan's son help along the way with their match making skills. Highly recommend for your summer reading!! I received through netgalley for an honest review.

    Jordan’s Return is a beachside story of a second chance at lost love. Jordan escapes to the Virginia coast to recuperate from a tragic accident caused by her abusive ex-husband. Where she runs into the man that broke her heart, Rob Tyler. Rob isn’t going to let this chance to rekindle a relationship is Jordan. But Jordan is having none of it and isn’t ready to let Rob back into her life especially now after the mistreatment she took from her ex. Misunderstandings and communication ends up becoming Jordan and Rob’s biggest obstacle. Charming and sweet Jordan’s Return is a heart melting second chance romance. I received this ARC copy of Jordan's Return from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for a honest review.

    This book is amazing. In fact I liked it so much I read it straight through. Jordan was in terrible auto accident while riding in a vehicle driven by her ex-husband that almost ended her life. For six months following the accident her family has stepped in and taken care of both her and her boys. She has decided to take the boys on a months vacation close to the beach so they can regroup as a family and for her to gain some of her independence back. The author's description of Eric, Jordan's ex really made you see what type of life Jordan had lived with while married to him. Jordan is proving just how tough she is. She runs into her high school sweetheart and first love, Rob who lives there. I see it as fate. Neither one has gotten over the other one. Rob carries a lot of quilt because of his actions Jordan is the one that got away. Through Rob's interactions with her boys and herself Jordan is learning to trust and love again. There is just something about kids in a book that grabs me. Maybe it's because I was a single parent and reading a book like this gives you 'hope' for second chances and for a brighter future. The only thing I didn't like about Rob is that he at first didn't see or understand why Jordan was so hesitant about uprooting her family. Good thing these two have great sisters that knew their happily ever after was for them to be together. I received a copy of Jordan's Return in exchange for an honest review.
  • An heart touching story of Second Chance Love

    I love second chance romances. Jordan’s Return has all that and more. Jordan finds herself finally free from her horrifying husband that controlled all aspects of Jordan’s life. After a near death car accident changes everything. Needing to be free of the house that holds to many bad memories Jordan decides what she and her sweet boys need is a much needed family vacation. Jordan hoped that in one months time she would have the answers to their future. There was one thing she did not plan on and that was a blast from her past; the one man who crushed her heart many moons ago. Rob believed his life was happy and complete. As a architect Rob owned his own successful business as well as co/running the restaurant that his grandfather had left to him after his death. Rob thought he had it all. That was until one voice took him back to high school and the one woman who held his heart even till this day. “Jordan”. Rob and Jordan stumble unexpectedly into each other, from that first meeting the air sizzled with passion. After a few bumpy patches in clearing the air after the years apart they both realized they still had feelings toward each other. The question is what to now that they open themselves up. Rob is a steamroller wanting everything now. Jordan is skittish after the mess of her first marriage is not ready for another. Can Rob and Jordan move pass all the unknowns to give those two boys and themselves what they all truly want? The best light-heart fun for me in Jordan’s Return is Jordan’s boys Joe and Jake captured my heart. Their connection with Rob had me cheering even more. Ms. Chase created such amazing memories for me with this family. I am hoping maybe, just maybe seeing them again in other books. The plot is heart touching, sexy with great family chemistry between all of the characters. The chance of love after so many miss givings, to have hope for two little boys who just jumps out and grabs you. Jordan’s Return will be a book I will recommend to my book club and anyone who enjoys romances with heart.
