Title: Then There Was You
Author: Claire Contreras
Series: Second Chances Duet #1
Release Date: March 1, 2018
Love and the right timing were two things I didn't believe in. 

Love is about walking to the edge of the cliff and taking the leap together.
Timing was never on our side.
My first mistake was hooking up with my best friend.
My second came years later, when we met again, and I fell for her. 
My third was letting her go, because I had to. Because a love like this wasn't built to withstand the winds coming in our direction.

Love and timing.
I didn't believe in either. 

Then there was you . . .
Well, there goes my heart. Just smashed to smithereens. Thanks, Claire Contreras. Tessa and Rowan have their feelings. They have their wants. They have their fears. They have their needs. They have their loyalties. But most of all, they COULD have each other, if they'd throw said loyalties and fears out the window. But like most level-headed people, they know there's more to life, and even love, than a few stolen moments. As they both facing paramounting changes in life personally and within their families, neither of them are willing to give up their assumed predestined futures. 

This book will make you swoon, it will make you lose your breath, and even if you're a non-crier, it may just make you do that as well. Every time Rowan and Tessa were near each other I could feel the crackle of tension up and down my arms. I could feel their emotions squeezing my heart. But this book, in all its cliffhanger glory left me breathless. In a horrible way, but in a way that left me needing more. Thank the good author that we don't have to wait long at all, but this book put me through the wringer!

Having said that, I could not recommend this book more. It's beautiful and soul-shattering, and will have you so far engrossed in Tessa and Rowan's world, if you're anything like me, you'll never want to leave, and when you're forced to, you'll have the BIGGEST book hangover. 

Happy Reading!

Release Date: March 15, 2018
The anticipated conclusion in Claire Contreras' Second Chances Duet . . . 

Love isn't always about timing.

Sometimes you have to throw caution to the wind and roll with it. 
I admit I wasn't ready. 
I know you don't want to look at me, let alone talk to me, but please, let me explain.
Let me tell you all the ways my heart broke when you walked away.
Let me show you what our years apart have done to me. 

Give me a chance to find my way back to you . . .
