    7. This book was a beautiful story about love and loss and, of course, second chances.I was a little hesitant to read this story, to be honest Most of my friends adored this story and a book with that amount of hype often doesn t live up to expectations However, this book just blew me away As this was my first book by T.A Webb, I was anxious to discover if his writing style meshed with what I like What I loved was that his character were so vivid and so full of feeling They felt raw and vulnerable [...]

    8. 5 BEAUTIFUL AND HEARTWARMING STARS Second Chances is a story about love, hurt, loss, friendship, family and forgiveness.To say that I enjoyed reading every part of this story would be a lie, some parts were just tough to read, they were sad and heartbreaking But in the end, all I can say is that this book made me FEEL, it moved me in a way I can t really explain with words and THAT is why I can t give this story anything but a five star rating I don t want to spoil the story too much for future [...]

    9. Cross posted at Outlaw Reviews and at Shelf InflictedEven though many of my friends heaped enthusiastic reviews on this story, and I ve read and enjoyed T.A Webb s reviews and know he s a thoughtful guy who writes from the heart, I still put off reading this.My mom died recently, so I wasn t sure my somewhat fragile emotions would handle reading about a man who is losing his mother to liver disease and at the same time trying to get over the pain of betrayal by his cheating ex I m so glad I put [...]

    11. 2.75 Why Am I ALWAYS The One Who Doesn t Love It I was on the fence about this book but it was getting so many glowing reviews that I decided to take a chance on it It ended up being justt for me.1 The word fuck in all of its glorious formsI m no prude about language but when in the first six or so pages the word fuck is used at least five or six times That s just repetitive Repetitive and distracting to the point of where by chapter three it was annoying me I felt like it was supposed to be a c [...]

    12. Another beautiful book from T.A Webb I love this man s writing so very much Each time I read one of his books I m struck by the fact that they don t feel written It s much like listening to a friend tell you a great story.This story concerns Mark or is it Tom a wonderful guy who goes through some serious hell to get his HEA I shed a lot of tears reading this, but am now filled with the warm fuzzies and looking forward to book 2.

    13. 4.5 Compassionate, Hopeful and Healing Stars To those that have scars and bumps and bruises on their souls, but stars in their eyes Life is an amazing gift and an unbearable burden We get through the bad times by dreaming of better ones We pray for a chance to fly, to escape, to love And always to be loved back For what we truly are Not the brave front we show to the world, but the scared child that hides in our souls and only a mother s caress, can comfort it.Mark carries the weight of the worl [...]

    14.

    15. 4 1 2 Stars I m smiling through my tears I m having trouble forming anything coherent Everytime I think of the events that played out in this book, especially one in particular, I find it hard to think, or for that matter breath Sad and sweet rolled into one amazing read So, for the most part while I was reading this book my heart felt like thisbut by the end of the book it felt like this sigh It drained me, but I m a better person for having read it.Very emotional, but at times also amusing, an [...]

    18. The harsher the storm, the beautiful the rainbow.I m giving Second Chances a 5 star rating because it is one of those books that really grabs your hair and forces you not just to look and see but to understand life as it happened and how it was lived by someone Yes it is full of drama, angst, and sappy moments But it is also thought provoking and heart achingly sweet This is life with its tragedies and victories and tragedies.Life is a bitch and in order to fully experience it, sometimes you h [...]

    19. This is one of those book reviews that took me a long time and a lot of caffeine to put together I started trying to write it after reading the last page of the book but in all honesty I was so emotionally charged all you would have got was a mass of incoherent ramblings I swear I cant remember the last time I read something as moving as this story minute it s tearing my heart out and the next minute it s filling it back up Second Chances takes us on a roller coaster of a ride through the life o [...]

    20. EVERYONE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE.This is a really really good story This was different from what I was expecting actually Different from the regular boy meets boy, boy fucks boy, boy falls in love with boy, boy and boy fucks lives happily ever after kind of story It begins where Mark going home from visiting his dying mom in the hospital His boss advised him to get a massage because Mark s so stressed out And that s when he meet Antonio, a masseur and his future BFF and lover.Mark AntonioThis s [...]

    21. DNF 24%So.I think I m the only one of my friends to not like this book But I just don t get the hype I don t know if it was the writing style or what, but I felt zero connection to any of the characters I didn t feel the friendship developing between Antonio and Mark I didn t feel any romantic connection between Antonio and Mark I certainly didn t feel anything between Mark and Brian And I m sorry but there was no way Antonio was not gay view spoiler What straight guy gives another guy a hand jo [...]

    22. This wasn t for me I felt like Webb got out his ideas book from the last five years, read some really great concepts he d had for a story, and then threw them all in to the mix together view spoiler On the first character death Let go Just let go I cried On the second character death You re my heart and it ll go with you I ll be here, and I ll hold your hand, and you focus on me, and when you leave me, you won t be alone Don t be afraid We won t be saying good bye, baby Just, til later I was fee [...]

    23. There are no words that I can write that will do justice to this beautifully written book In my opinion this book This story isn t just a romance novel This is a story about life It s about the workings of a relationship, a friendship, and a family One of the things I loved is that the story spans over a number of years At the beginning Mark is dealing with the impending death of his mom and his relationship with Brian having fallen apart After a coworker suggests he get a massage, he makes an a [...]

    24. Oh my Am I crazy or I m seeing Antonio above there Almost a year ago I read this, and I need to review it Soon.

    25. 5 STARS although this book deserves than just 5 stars Okay, so I d heard lots of people talk VERY highly of this book, so I figured I d give it a try People had warned me that it is sad in the middle, but NOTHING could have prepared me for the emotions I felt reading this book I can honestly tell you that I m not usually a person that cries during books maybe on a very rare occasion but this book had me crying from 30% through approximately 60% quite frequently For me that is the sign of a grea [...]

    26. Second Chances Two common enough words flying solo, but when linked together form something so hard to give, find, and receive in life Forgiveness, love, pain, and hope all come together for that special and rare second chance Readers meet an emotionally exhausted Mark Jennings in the midst of grief and anguish Mark s pain and anger from a shattered love paired with shock and loneliness of letting, watching someone we love go to death hits us right off the bat with one hell of a wallop Almost ev [...]

    29. When you read a book and you expect it to be sad, you might end up feeling like it somehow tricked you Tricked you into something sad but irrelevant Or something sad but unnecessary Or something sad but pathetic.What you don t realize, is that sometimes everything you see on that paper could be real.It could be that your mother was taken from you and you had your hands tied behind your back, with nothing but silently watching Maybe you get to say your goodbye Or maybe you don t.Yes, I said pray [...]

    30. 4.5 Stars healing stars The title says it all This book is all about Second Chances The story spans six years, I believe Mark works for a non profit organization He s overworked, his mother is dying, his live in boyfriend cheated on himhe needs a break Or maybe a massage He books an appointment with Antonio at his apartment for such massage Antonio is straight but the two men hit it off right away This is the start of weekly massages, long talks over wine and a blossoming deep connection As I sa [...]
