Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Second Chance At Love by Tara Paradise
Smart, sexy and spirited, Brooke Cates is the type of woman every man dreams of.
But Brooke has already found the man of her dreams – tall, dark and ruggedly handsome cowboy Logan MacKenna. Once young and in love, they never imagined that a devastation betrayal would lead them down different paths. Now, when tragedy strikes, Brooke must return to her hometown of Angel Ridge, Montana. Once there, she is forced to deal with old hurts when Logan tries to make her remember the past she has chosen to forget.
Logan MacKenna can have any woman he wants, but his heart has been reserved for Brooke since they shared their very first kiss.
Time and distance have done nothing to change that. When chance random encounters abound, it’s as if fate is pushing them together, and Brooke decides that she doesn’t want to fight the undeniable sexual tension that exists between them. When it’s played its course, she will simply go back to her life. But Logan has no intention of letting her walk away from him a second time.
Will Brooke be able to put her fears aside and trust in Logan enough to give him back her heart?
And if they succeed in rekindling their love, can their new relationship withstand the force of Brooke’s longtime secret, one that could tear them apart for good this time?
Brooke & Logan have been friends since they were small children and as they grew into their teenage years they shared everything together, including their first kiss at 14 years old.
Logan proposed to Brooke when they were 21 years old on a surprise holiday to Paris. Brooke thought they would be together forever but after finding Logan in bed with the local skank after a booze filled night, Brooke ended it and left for medical school. Logan tried incessantly to get Brooke to talk to him, forgive him but she never did.
Eight years later, Brooke is a successful obstetrician and loves her job at the hospital. She receives a call that brings her back to her hometown for summer. Brooke and her sister Karissa are out one day and they run into the Mackenna brothers Chase, Seth & Logan. They have all developed into gorgeous men and the attraction and desire between Brooke and Logan is still very much there. Brooke is reluctant to reignite anything with Logan again and assumes he has moved on. He hasn’t, in fact all of the McKenna brothers are still single, much to their mothers dismay.
Logan is determined not to let Brooke slip from his fingers again and he manages to win her heart over time and they have the most romantic & sexy summer together.
Brooke is hiding something from Logan though and he overhears something that completely floors him. Logan is heartbroken and shocked when Brooke eventually confesses it all to him.
He thought he knew her inside out and she was his future but now everything has changed. Can they get past this and still be together?
I really enjoyed this lovely romance story and give it 4 heartwarming stars.

My name is Tara and I am a wife, mother, lifelong reader, and author of Contemporary Romance fiction. I live in beautiful Upstate New York in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, on Great Sacandaga Lake.
I've been reading romance novels since I first picked up one of my mother's paperbacks at the age of 16, and writing since I could first hold a pencil. I have always had a vivid imagination and I love creating characters and stories that readers can fall in love with. My debut novel, entitled Second Chance at Love(Book One of The MacKenna Born & Bred Trilogy), is the stormy, sexy and sweet story of Logan and Brooke and I can't wait to share it with you.
I have many goals, and one of them is to visit Italy with my amazing husband, Matthew, whose family comes from the Old Country. I have two sons ~ Braden, 10 and Jordan, 9, who are the loves of my life. They are very bright and very clever and keep me on my toes! In my spare time (what is that, really?!), I enjoy spending time with friends and family.
