I can’t lie. The cover of Second Chance Summer by Jill Shalvis drew me in. I made it to the ripe old age of 34 and I’ve been reading consistently for the last 12 years or so and had never read a book by Jill Shalvis. I can’t tell you how happy I am now that I’ve corrected this egregious error.
Lily Danville was likable enough. Her awkwardness wasn’t as endearing to me as it may have been for others but I gave her some grace considering all that she had been through. I don’t know how I would have been able to deal with the losses life has dealt her. Aiden Kincaid is an adorable hero. I don’t know that most people would use that to describe him as he is a sexy alpha male who works on a search and rescue team. I just think adorable suits a man who has waited over a decade for the love of his life to come back to Colorado and him.
I really enjoyed the entire cast of secondary characters. They seem to have a lot of fun with each other and at each other’s expense. I am pretty excited to continue the series just so that I can spend more time with them. While the family dynamics are interesting and not my experience it doesn’t make them any less a family. Sometimes a family is the family you chose.
Second Chance Summer by Jill Shalvis definitely had a very slow start and it seemed to take longer than I like to figure out everyone’s angle but there was still one heck of a payoff! I’ve picked up the other two books in this series so I’m hoping to get back to Cedar Ridge in the near future!
