Book Review: Second Act (Second Glances #2) by Nancy Herkness
Title: Second Act (Second Glances #2)
Author: Nancy Herkness
Second Chance is cheesy over the top story that lacks any conflict that is needed in someway to drive a the story forward.
The writing and story line isn't bad it just unbelievable as well as a slow pace story that drags on though out the book.
Thank you Netgalley and the publisher Montlake Romance for the advance copy of Nancy Herkness Second Act.
Lights. Camera. Romance.
Jessica Quillen, veterinarian for the charitable K-9 Angelz program, didn’t mean to stumble into the middle of a New York movie shoot. She just wanted to rescue the stray dog she’d been chasing. Instead, she’s playing catch-up with her ex-fiancé—and the screen’s hottest action hero, Hugh Baker. The only man she ever loved. The dream that disappeared. The heartthrob who’s now hoping for a “take two.”
Seeing Jessica triggers emotions Hugh has tried to forget. Abandoned by his mother to foster care, he still struggles to feel worthy of love and to open his heart to a woman. His biggest mistake was not trusting Jessica. It was his fault she left. All he wants now is to make up for lost time. But he has to prove that she can trust him.
Though the sparks still smolder, he’s still Hollywood—a world far away from Jessica’s. Now it’s up to her to give their love story a happily ever after.
Kindle Edition, 320 pages
