Our Review

“Were you being romantic?” I look over my shoulder.
“I was being romantic as shit.”

Ren Winters didn’t know that the day a moose stepped in front of her car, it would put her in the path of Griffin Knightly, a guarded man, who had suffered a life-changing tragedy, and just how he would change her life. We didn’t know how much we would fall in love with Port Snow, the Knightly’s, Ren and all the characters in this charmingly engaging and swoony story!

We adore Meghan Quinn’s stories and her loveable and relatable characters. After reading That Second Chance, we’re now desperately looking forward to hearing about the other Knightly brothers love stories in her new Getting Lucky Series.

‘It might have been easier to never have known Griffin the way I do now; each time he pushes me away, my heart splinters.’

Meghan Quinn delivered that small-town community feels to perfection. So much so, we want to pack a bag and head off to Port Snow to experience the hospitality of this quirky small town which was like another character in this sweet story.  Meghan Quinn captured it all beautifully. We could smell the sea air, taste the pastries and fudge in the Lobster Landing. Our mouths were watering!

The prologue takes us two years previously, when, on a boozy night out in New Orleans to celebrate their younger brother, Brig’s twenty-first birthday they upset a palm reader, who places a curse on the Knightly boys, affecting their love life.

‘All I’m asking for is one moment, this one instance, when I can forget about the past, forget about the curse, and live the life I wish I could have.’

For Griffin, the curse goes from a laugh to seriousness, when tragedy strikes and Griffin, as a result, he becomes very closed off promising never to give his heart again. Never allowing himself to feel.

Griffin was a beautiful man. Dependable, giving and so proud of his town, and his contribution to the upkeep of the pretty little Port Snow. The Knightly clan, Mum, Dad, Rogan, Reid, Brig, Jen and Griffin are born and bred whereas Ren Winters is escaping her overprotective mother, and starting a new life as the Algebra teacher in the town. That Second Chance could refer to both Griffin and Ren.

Sparks fly between the quirky, straight shooting, sweet Ren and Griffin, and for every step forward he takes, the curse remains steadfastly in the back of his mind, making him afraid to take that leap, but Ren is having none of it.

‘She’s fun. She’s beautiful. She’s everything I would look for in a woman. And everything I should stay away from.’

There was so much to love about this slow burn and endearing love story. From the meddling supportive Knightly family, the picturesque town brought so perfectly to life, the amusing town gossip, and not to mention the little connection to Two Wedding Crashers! We squealed when we read that!!

“Griffin, I hate seeing you so alone, it hurts my heart.”
Taking a deep breath, I plaster on a fake smile. “I’m not alone, I have you fools.”

An adorable setting, likable characters, charming, witty, sweet and emotional storytelling. Another winner from Meghan Quinn! Bring on the next book…Oh boy, we’re looking forward to his story!


USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn delivers a smart and cheeky romance about love’s power to lift hearts . . . and curses.

It was supposed to be an innocent night, celebrating my brother’s birthday. Nothing was supposed to go wrong. We’d vowed to be on our best behavior after all . . .

But it only took one rowdy night with my brothers to flip my world upside down. One unlucky encounter saddled us with a family curse and the promise of doomed relationships. I laughed it off immediately. “Yeah, right,” I thought. “A love curse. Ha!”

Boy, was I wrong.

Word spreads quickly in a town like mine; rumors about that night soon made us the most eligible yet untouchable bachelors in Port Snow, Maine. As a subject of endless gossip and speculation, I could kiss my dating life goodbye.

It would have stayed that way if Ren Winters, the new girl in town, hadn’t crashed into my life. Brave, beautiful, and smart—her vivacious thirst for a fresh start has given me hope that maybe, just maybe, I can have one too.

Everyone wishes for that second chance . . . but could this really be mine?
