From the #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Susan Mallery, read the second irresistible installment in the Happily Inc series!
Mathias Mitchell’s easy smile hides a world of hurt. After the worst kind of family betrayal, he moves to Happily Inc., California—the wedding destination town supplies a steady stream of bridesmaids, perfect for his “no promises, no pain” lifestyle. Yet he can’t stop watching for his beautiful, elusive neighbor on the animal preserve behind their homes.
Gamekeeper Carol Lund knows she’s not special enough to attract an alpha male like Mathias, so his offer to help her adopt a herd for her lonely giraffe is surprising—and his determined seduction, even more so. But just as she finally welcomes him into her bed, his careless actions crush her heart. Will she give him a second chance to prove she’ll always come first in his heart?
Don’t miss You Say It First, the first book in the Happily Inc series.
Second Chance Girl
Second Chance Girl is the second book in the Happily Inc series but can be read as a stand alone. Previous (& upcoming) characters are referenced but does not confuse the story.
I am enjoying this new series- the author always creates such fun locations & the unique story lines. Second Chance Girl makes your heart happy.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
The Second Chance Girl is a delightful and entertaining romance.
The Duke of Somerbrooke was concerned over valuables that were missing from his estate. And the only packages that were leaving his home were addressed to an American, Violet Lund, in his grandmother’s handwriting. Ulrich Sherwood was livid. Violet Lund was a conniving thief who was manipulating his grandmother. The Duke would see justice done, even if that meant, that he had to travel thousands of miles to do so.
Violet Lund, couldn’t believe when the man of her dreams, Ulrich Sherwood, the Duke of Somerbrooke, walked into her shop. The last time she saw him, she was all frizzy hair and braces; and he had made her feel beautiful. He was a gorgeous man; except, for the fiery blue daggers that were aimed right at her. What could she possibly have done?
Carol Lund loved her work at the Animal Preserve. She also had a hidden crush on her next door neighbor, Mathias Mitchell. They were only friends though. She wasn’t anything special, and he was a well-known artist. Besides, Mathias didn’t do relationships; he was a no commitment, one-night romance type of guy. And, although, he could never be hers, she sometimes imagined that he was.
Mathias secretly adored his giraffe loving next door neighbor, Carol Lund. If he were to trust any woman, it would be her. But, Mathias learned from a young age that love often led to betrayal and pain. So Mathias would admire Carol from the sidelines. Little did he know, though, that events in his life were going to drive him right into Carol’s arms.
Second Chance Girl is a well-written light read, filled with witty dialogue and sweet romance. Thank you, Harlequin and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I was looking forward to reading Mathias’s story and it didn’t disappoint. It was fun to watch him fall for Carol. I really liked Carol in this book also. The whole book was great from beginning to end.
