Julia Kline, known by her friends as Jules, had a rough time growing up with a dad that travelled constantly and a mom that was anything but a mother.

When she’s six she meets her new neighbor Noah Sinclair. The pair quickly become best friends. He looks after her and when they're teenagers their relationship turns romantic. They didn’t account for Jules’ malicious mother stepping in and tearing them apart. Leaving Jules broken hearted.

Present Day:
Jules is going for her master's degree and working as exotic dancer at a high-end gentleman’s club to pay for it. She lives with her best friend from boarding school Ellie, who’s also a dancer. When her boss informs them that the club has been rented out for a bachelor party she thinks it will be just like any other night until she walks out on stage and sees Noah Sinclair. The boy that broke his promises and her heart. To make things worse he’s the bachelor. He tries to get her to talk to him but she’s stronger now and blows him off. But he wants answers too. Throw in a crazy fiancé, a couple of hilarious best friends and enjoy the ride. Will Noah and Jules get their second chance or will the past decide the future?

After hearing about Second Chance Romance I was absolutely dying to read it. It was a good story, but didn't come all the way through for me.

Jules has had a rough life. After her father left, her mother blamed all of the unhappiness she felt on her. When her mother found out that she had been sleeping at her best friends house on a regular basis, she up and moved them to New York. Jules and Noah's promise to talk regularly and never forget the other wasn't supposed to be broken. Now, ten years later, Noah walks back into her life.

Jules and Noah's story was heartbreakingly beautiful. I loved both of them and when roadblocks came up and I respected each of them for their decisions. I liked that Jules set the story off with a bang. It was so easy to get lost in and I enjoyed every second of reading this lovely book. Even though I knew how it would end, getting there was unique.

I really did enjoy reading Second Chance Romance, but after a while the lack of editing started to get to me. I would have to read a line over a few times before being able to figure out what it was supposed to say. I also noticed that I was being told what happened, not being shown. I'm a very visual person and it made picturing scenes more difficult.

Overall, Second Chance Romance was a good read, but there are some kinks that need to be ironed out. If you want a gripping new adult story that will have you hooked after one chapter, look no further!

Thanks for the warning about the editing. I'm looking at self publishing my NA novel in the fall. I plan to have it professionally edited, which means I have the same expectation for other SP'd books.
