Between The Pages - Second Chance Love

Second Chance Love
By Jennifer Labelle
November 2011

Goody, goody Teegan Hallowell was tired of being teased for following the rules. So, when her brother’s sexy friend shows an interest, she rebels, and learns all about the good kind of bad. Now ten years later, Teegan returns home to escape a horrible mistake, but wonders if she’s made an even bigger one by returning. There was a reason she left Digby, when her dreams shattered and the man she loved betrayed her. So when she realizes she’s still in love with him, matters become complicated when he reveals her reason for leaving him was all in vain.

This is a pleasantly put together story about a second chance for Love. Ms. LaBelle created two dynamic characters, Teegan and Liam, who met as teenagers through the heroine’s brother, established a relationship and absolutely adored each other. A thirst for our heroine to make something of herself caused her to leave town, separating the couple and forcing Liam to go on with his own life. Teegan finds that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence and she comes home to mend all the hurt she’d endured while gone. I’m a sucker for second chances and what I loved in this story is that over the 10 years they were apart, Liam never lost the love he had for Teegan even though he’d moved on after she left. Liam is a great hero, a great single dad and unbelievably patient because he knows what he wants and he fights for it. I also liked the suspense of Teegan’s not-so-nice ex stepping in to wreak some havoc. It was clear Liam would do anything necessary to make sure he didn’t lose her again. After a near death experience, it was obvious Teegan knew where she belonged and who loved her. You won’t be disappointed if you choose to read this great second chance love story !
