Two’s company. Three is perfection.
Second Chances, Book 5
Shelly MacIsaac has pretty much given up all hope. Hope that she’ll lose weight, that she’ll find any excitement in life, that there will ever be any man in her bed besides Barney, her cat.
When her friend Zoey suggests the wine girls come up with resolutions for the New Year, Shelly latches onto the one everyone expects her to choose—the tried-and-true commitment to go on a diet and get into shape. Deep inside, however, Shelly knows she needs to change a lot more than just her physical appearance.
After a year licking his wounds over a broken romance, Christian is through. He’s been quietly lusting after Shelly at work, and he’s not wasting any more time. There’s something about her that makes him believe she’s the one. Unfortunately, Shelly’s kickboxing instructor, Lance—Christian’s best friend—has set his sights on the sweet blonde as well.
Instead of pistols at dawn, the two friends come up with a deliciously erotic answer to their shared dilemma—if the shy beauty will accept their racy proposal.
I loved this story! Mari Carr seemed to crawl right inside my head and write the perfect story. Shelly is so easy for me to relate to and while she might have come across as emotionally injured or stunted I was able to easily understand exactly where she was coming from. Christian is a solid, sweet shy, and supper sexy hero and he alone would have been a dream come true for any woman but when you add in the fun, fit, friendly Lance to the equation it's beyond a fantasy. And while the relationship isn't quite the norm they way it was approached made it the only real option. The supporting characters in this story were as engaging as the leading trio and I cannot wait to read the other wine girl stories. If you are looking for a sweet and sinfully sexy story this is one I can recommend, especially if you enjoy curvy heroines as much as I do!
