That Second Chance (Getting Lucky, #1)
USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn delivers a smart and cheeky romance about love’s power to lift hearts . . . and curses.It was supposed to be an innocent night, celebrating my brother’s birthday. Nothing was supposed to go wrong. We’d vowed to be on our best behavior after all . . .But it only took one rowdy night with my brothers to flip my world upside down. One unlucky encounter saddled us with a family curse and the promise of doomed relationships. I laughed it off immediately. “Yeah, right,” I thought. “A love curse. Ha!”Boy, was I wrong.Word spreads quickly in a town like mine; rumors about that night soon made us the most eligible yet untouchable bachelors in Port Snow, Maine. As a subject of endless gossip and speculation, I could kiss my dating life goodbye.It would have stayed that way if Ren Winters, the new girl in town, hadn’t crashed into my life. Brave, beautiful, and smart—her vivacious thirst for a fresh start has given me hope that maybe, just maybe, I can have one too.Everyone wishes for that second chance . . . but could this really be mine?

Like I’ve come back to life after a long stint in purgatory.With each book I read by Meghan Quinn, I become more in awe of her writing talent. She truly has a gift! THAT SECOND CHANCE was simply perfect! I loved the Hero, the Heroine, their friends & family, and the beautiful picturesque backdrop of Port Snow, Maine. I was consumed by the plot from the start. The story is super angsty, but still had little moments of Meghan Quinn’s signature humor thrown in that was just the icing on the cake. We are reunited with the main characters from “Two Wedding Crashers”, Rylee and Beck since the story takes place in the town these two call home. Griffin is the oldest of four brothers, and these boys are the hottest bachelors in town, but none of the single women of Port Snow will risk getting involved with them. Word has spread throughout the town that they’ve got a love curse placed on them all by a vindictive palm reader. Almost every member of the Knightly family thinks the curse is rubbish, except for Griffin. He suffered a tragic loss not too long after the curse was placed and he’s sworn off love to protect his heart.Ren is a sweet and delightful woman who has lived a somewhat sheltered life due to being the only child of super overprotective parents. She survived a horrible car crash over a year ago and now that she’s fully on the mend, she wants a change in her life. Ren moves across the country for a job as an algebra teacher in order to get some freedom and spread her wings. Griffin and Ren’s first encounter would most definitely be considered a “meet cute” and soon after it’s as if fate with a little help from Griffin’s siblings, keeps throwing the two together. They’re instantly attracted to each other and their chemistry is hard to deny, but Griffin’s fears are nearly crippling and make for some hardcore angst.Will love conquer all or will fear tear these two beautiful people apart?Here are my overall ratings:Heroes: 5+++++Heroine: 5+++++Plot: 5+++++Angst: 5Steam: 4.5Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5+++++THAT SECOND CHANCE releases tomorrow!!!

But word traveling through the grapevine is all four of them are completely and utterly untouchable.Two years ago, the Knightly brothers took a trip to New Orleans to celebrate the youngest brother, Brig, turning twenty-one. During one of their drunken walks back to their hotel, they not so gracefully stumbled over an older woman, holding up a sign to read palms. Feeling bad about breaking her palm reading table, Brig decides to see what his future holds and hands the lady a twenty-dollar bill.Not believing a word the lady is saying, they drunkenly mock her and call the entire palm reading a hoax. Furious with the boys, she casts a curse over them, her gaze landing directly on Griffin the oldest brother, as she spoke. “Listen to me, to the words I have spoken. From this day on, your love will be broken. It isn’t until your minds have matured, that the weight of this curse will forever be cured.” The boys exchange glances, brows creased, confusion written all over their faces . . . yeah right, what a load of crock!At least that's what they thought . . .

If this wasn't a very pleasant surprise!!!!It wasn't the first time that I've read a book by Meghan Quinn, and i really, really enjoyed it as much as the others!!!This was a very promising start to a lovely series and I can not wait for the rest of the Knightley brothers's stories!!!! I'm so excited!!!This book had a ***4 "Moose me!!!" stars*** "All I’m asking for is one moment, this one instance, when I can forget about the past, forget about the curse, and live the life I wish I could have."

I'm so excited!!!This book had a little from everything inside... Romance, family, tough moments, funny moments, sexy moments... It was awesome!!! "The urge is strong, The consequences even stronger. I'm caught between a rock and a hard place." Everything started a couple of years ago, when the Knightley brothers (four in the number!!!) went a trip in New Orleans and in an awkard drunken moment, they were cursed...They were cursed with broken love...A curse that they didn't take very seriously...But for Griffin that curse became very real, very soon.... "From this day on, your love will be broken. It isn't until your minds have matured that the weight of this curse will forever be cured." At the present, Griffin Knightley is a hermit who is filling his days with lots of work... He is a volunteer fireman, he is working in his parents's gift shop and his limited free time, he is filling it with helping wherever he is needed...Love has no place anymore in his life, and he is determined his love life to stay as it is... Non existent!!!!But then a car accident is happening with the new algebra teacher and his world steadily and slowly is turning upside down... "I keep busy; it's what helps me not dwell on the past. Always doing something, always moving, always pushing forward. If I don't, then the past eats me alive; my regrets consume me." Ren, after a bad accident that almost cost her life, is determined to start her life over, away from the overbearing shelter of her parents...The first day that she is coming to her new resident, in Port Snow, a suicidal moose is changing her life for once again...The handsome man that rescued her will become a big part of her world and it will be impossible to stay away from him... "I think it's time you put your past behind you and start living in the present, because if you don't, you very well might miss out on something incredibly special." Well, from the day of the accident, a kind of frendship is forming between Ren and Griffin... But from both sides, there are deeper feelings involved, feelings that can not be acted upon since a terrible curse is hanging above Griffin's head...So will they act upon these feelings after all??? Will Griffin defy that said curse and chance a second chance on love??? "She's playful.She's fun.She's beautiful.She's everything I would look for in a woman...And everything I should stay away from...""You got to me, Ren. You got past my defenses, and I couldn't get you out of my head, no matter how hard I tried." Well, Griffin and Ren were very cute together and on their own... I liked them sooo much!!!Griffin had lots of baggage upon his shoulders... He had lost the love of his life and he thought that this chapter had closed for him... But then a woman came into his life and his heart starts beating again... But he was too scared to act upon it because of the curse... A curse that he didn't believe in the beginning, but which life proved right very soon...Ren from the other hand was determined to live her life in the fullest... She was an easygoing and very cute woman full of kindness and humor...She and Griffin were fitting so good together in every aspect...Unfortunately, Griffin's fear was standing between them... "It might have been easier to never have known Griffin the way I do now; each time he pushes me away, my heart splinters." "Everything seems more real, more alive, just like the feeling in my heart, pounding, reminding me that no matter how often I deny it, the woman in my arms has a profound effect on me. Like I’ve come back to life after a long stint in purgatory." Well, except those two, there were many people n here that made my day...First of all, the Knightley brothers and sister were sooo hillarious and sweet... Their antics were so laughable and i can not wait to learn more about these guys!!! I love the way that they were sneaking behind Griffin's back to bring love in his life... After all, they were meddlers.... All of them... Plus the parents!!!!I also laughed very much with all the town and their gossips... Okay, it felt a little bit too much the way that they were gossiping around and the extensions of gossips were extravagant, but in a way, that's reality with most gossips in small towns!!!! Bahahaha... "All meddlers, every single one of them." And as i told you above, i can not wait for the second book "The forever girl" which is about a brother that i liked very much, Rogan, and i was wishing for his story... So, yay me!!!!!Give me more of the Knightley brothers!!!! Bring it on!!!! "He can't be around her.""Is it that bad?""Yeah, and it doesn't help that he's still in love with her." ***ARC kindly provided by Montlake Romance via NetGalley for the exchange of an honest review***

This is the first book, hopefully of four, featuring the Knightly brothers and their search for true love after being cursed by a fortune teller in NOLA.Ren Winters is lucky to be alive. After surviving a chain reaction crash on an L.A. freeway and a year of recovery, she is ready to move on with her life and out from under the constant excessive worry from her mother. She accepts a new job teaching algebra clear across the country in a small town in Maine. A moose vs. car encounter on her first day is not what she was expecting, but it puts her right where she needs to be, in the arms of a handsome volunteer firefighter.Griffin Knightly has always been the responsible oldest brother of the four Knightly brothers. They are four of the hottest bachelors in town, but small town gossip has left them untouchable. Coming home with a curse from New Orleans, Griffin suffers a loss that makes him a believer and women stay away. He fills his life with the family business, volunteering on the fire department and many other civic groups. When called out for a car crash, he rescues a hysterical Ren. Ren cannot believe that this handsome man lives right down the street from her new home and is willing to introduce her to her new hometown. Griffin is trying to stay away from the new teacher, who is funny, quirky and sweet, but his family keeps throwing them together. The chemistry between Ren and Griffin is strong, but is it strong enough to defeat Griffin’s fears?I absolutely loved this romance and all of the Knightly boys! Ms. Quinn captured my heart with this family and small town. The dialogue is spot on between the siblings with just the right amount of love and snark. All of the characters were fully fleshed out and believable. The sex in this romance is explicit and hot and the slow build-up to it made me as anxious as the characters. This is one of those books that you read quickly to get to the HEA and are completely engrossed in the romance and yet when it is over, you want more.I highly recommend this romance and I cannot wait to read the other Knightly boys’ stories!

    I absolutely freakin' loved this first book in the new series about small-town Maine's Knightly brothers.

I loved getting to know each of the four gorgeous brothers and can't wait to read each of their stories!Briefly, this one is about Griffin--who is the future owner of his family's confectionery shop.

I loved getting to know each of the four gorgeous brothers and can't wait to read each of their stories!Briefly, this one is about Griffin--who is the future owner of his family's confectionery shop. He's also a volunteer fire fighter, and that's how he meets the pretty, quirky, adorable Algebra teacher named Ren. Ren has moved across country to start a new, independent life (away from a well-meaning, helicopter parent), but minutes after arriving in her new town has a car accident, and is rescued by Griffin. Sparks fly, Ren ends up are renting a house (owned by another Knightly brother) just down the street from Griffin, and the two of them become 'friends'. Griffin would like more, but he is terrified of falling for Ren because of a curse placed on his brothers by a palm reader years ago. Yes, you read that correctly. Will Griffin let his fears get in the way of the best thing to happen to him in years?I have to admit, even though I loved Griff, at times he frustrated me. He let what was purely a coincidence regarding a loved one and 'the curse' rule his life. At times I wanted to slap him silly. But when he finally let the courageous, adorable Ren into his life fully, and saw how good it could be, I wanted to jump for joy!Fans of small town romance that's filled with delightful, quirky secondary characters and a hero and heroine that you'll root hard for--you're going to love this story! I couldn't put it down--I wanted it to go on and on. I'm a big fan of Meghan Quinn--she's my go- to for sexy, funny, feel-good romance.5 big starsMy thanks to the publisher for providing an ARC via Netgalley

    So many good things in this book! I love when a story is set in a small town, especially one in Maine. The author described this touristy town so well that I want to live there and I want to get to know each and every member of this town. Another bonus was that the hero had 3 brothers and a sister who all butted into his life constantly. They were a fun addition to this book and I can't wait until we get a book on each of the brothers. Our main couple, Ren and Griffin were adorable together. As So many good things in this book!

As you read in the blurb, there is a curse associated with Griffin and his brothers. Because of this, most of the book is about these two dancing around a friendship that they both want to take to the next level. Griffin is gun shy and he has a good reason for it. I'm not usually one who likes it if a character keeps the other at a distance but it's a very small distance. They spend a lot of time together getting to know each other and that made me happy to experience it with them. I truly felt like we got a good amount of them together despite not being a couple for most of it. All the characters in this series were fun and like-able. I'm looking forward to the next book!

The Knightly f This was my first Meghan Quinn book. I know, I know. I’ve been living under a rock.

Everything seemed so cute and quaint that I really need this town to be real. She took her time in describing this New England atmosphere that I would love to experience firsthand.Hands down my favorite part of this book was the family aspect. The Knightly family was so awesome to read about. These brothers and sister made the book with their humor and genuine love for one another. Their teasing of Griffin made me smile so many times that I lost count.The relationship between Griffin and Ren was so cute and sweet. Although I was going to throw kindle out the window with how long it finally took for me to get some action. But when we did goodness was it worth it.“I can’t even pinpoint a moment when I’ve wanted something as badly as I want your lips on mine.” These two had me rooting for them ever since their first meeting. I can see why Griffin fell for Ren. She was cute and came off with such a good nature. She livened him and made him want to try love again. Reading about them falling in love was such a good way to spend an afternoon.Now, I couldn’t give it five stars because I did have some minor issues with it. This features trope that I don’t really like to read about which is a dead spouse. For some reason, I just don’t like that in romance. It always seems like there is so much focus on moving on and flashbacks of the previous spouse and that’s what happened here. It could have been more focused on Griffin and Ren instead. But don’t mind me, that’s just a personal reason why I couldn’t rate it higher. My other issues were how reliant Griffin was on this curse and also his predictable nature. It almost seemed as if he used the curse as a crutch to not get involved with Ren. It plays a part in his predictability as well. He pulled Ren in just to get to close and press the brakes on it over and over. I hated the back and forth in Griffin. Overall, yes I had problems with it but it made for a good book in a new series. I know that I will want to get my hands on a story about every brother in this family. It gave you steam and some heartfelt moments and I recommend this to those who like small town romances.

    We got a little snippet of the Knightly brothers in Two Wedding Crashers so I was so glad they get their own series. Griffin is absolutely yummy. He is still dealing with a huge loss and doesn't want any entanglements. Ren crashes into town, literally, and his life is never the same. The scene of him helping her was so vivid and funny. Griffin fought his attraction so hard....fortunately for Ren it was a losing battle! Great start to the Knightly Brothers series!

    “Were you being romantic?” I look over my shoulder.“I was being romantic as shit.” Ren Winters didn’t know that the day a moose stepped in front of her car, it would put her in the path of Griffin Knightly, a guarded man, who had suffered a life-changing tragedy, and just how he would change her life. We didn’t know how much we would fall in love with Port Snow, the Knightly’s, Ren and all the characters in this charmingly engaging and swoony story!We adore Meghan Quinn’s stories and her loveab “Were you being romantic?” I look over my shoulder.“I was being romantic as shit.” Ren Winters didn’t know that the day a moose stepped in front of her car, it would put her in the path of Griffin Knightly, a guarded man, who had suffered a life-changing tragedy, and just how he would change her life. We didn’t know how much we would fall in love with Port Snow, the Knightly’s, Ren and all the characters in this charmingly engaging and swoony story!We adore Meghan Quinn’s stories and her loveable and relatable characters. After reading That Second Chance, we’re now desperately looking forward to hearing about the other Knightly brothers love stories in her new Getting Lucky Series.‘It might have been easier to never have known Griffin the way I do now; each time he pushes me away, my heart splinters.’Meghan Quinn delivered that small-town community feel to perfection. So much so, we want to pack a bag and head off to Port Snow to experience the hospitality of this quirky small town which was like another character in this sweet story. Meghan Quinn captured it all beautifully. We could smell the sea air, taste the pastries and fudge in the Lobster Landing. Our mouths were watering!The prologue takes us two years previously, when, on a boozy night out in New Orleans to celebrate their younger brother, Brig’s twenty-first birthday they upset a palm reader, who places a curse on the Knightly boys, affecting their love life.‘All I’m asking for is one moment, this one instance, when I can forget about the past, forget about the curse, and live the life I wish I could have.’For Griffin, the curse goes from a laugh to seriousness, when tragedy strikes and Griffin, as a result, he becomes very closed off promising never to give his heart again. Never allowing himself to feel.Griffin was a beautiful man. Dependable, giving and so proud of his town, and his contribution to the upkeep of the pretty little Port Snow. The Knightly clan, Mum, Dad, Rogan, Reid, Brig, Jen and Griffin are born and bred whereas Ren Winters is escaping her overprotective mother, and starting a new life as the Algebra teacher in the town. That Second Chance could refer to both Griffin and Ren.Sparks fly between the quirky, straight shooting, sweet Ren and Griffin, and for every step forward he takes, the curse remains steadfastly in the back of his mind, making him afraid to take that leap, but Ren is having none of it.‘She’s fun. She’s beautiful. She’s everything I would look for in a woman. And everything I should stay away from.’There was so much to love about this slow burn and endearing love story. From the meddling supportive Knightly family, the picturesque town brought so perfectly to life, the amusing town gossip, and not to mention the little connection to Two Wedding Crashers! We squealed when we read that!! “Griffin, I hate seeing you so alone, it hurts my heart.”Taking a deep breath, I plaster on a fake smile. “I’m not alone, I have you fools.” An adorable setting, likable characters, charming, witty, sweet and emotional storytelling. Another winner from Meghan Quinn! Bring on the next book…Oh boy, we’re looking forward to his story!Available to purchase belowAmazon USAmazon UKCome and say hi, at:✲ TotallyBookedBlog✲ TBB on Facebook✲ TBB on Instagram✲ TBB on Twitter✲ TBB on Pinterest

I have always been a fan of Meghan's quirky romances but this is in a league of it's own! The Virgin Romance novelist has always been my favorite book of hers (and I have read nearly all of them), but this one? I think it's my new TOP favorite of all of her books. This is the type of book that leaves butterflies in your belly and a smile plastered to your face. This book has emotion, raw and unfiltered, and a whole lot of heart. It's also memorable, sweet, and addicting- I simply couldn't get enough of Griffin and Ren's story and I didn't want to stop reading. Based on all of this (I am truly fangirling right now) I would HIGHLY recommend That Second Chance to everyone!Meghan Quinn has not only written a heartfelt and captivating story here, but the setting is absolutely perfect! I could practically feel the salt on my skin coming off the ocean and smell the lobster and seafood. Having grown up in Maine during the summer months I know exactly what Port Snow is like! A beautiful small town with gossipy residents and beautiful views. I felt like I was living within the pages. It really brings back all my memories of being in Maine (mainly in the area of Sabego lake). One last thing that really thrilled me with this book is how Meghan sets us up for the next book- Rogan's story. I cannot wait to see how he maneuvers with this "curse" hanging over his head and his high school sweetheart/ex fiance suddenly showing back up in his life. Oh boy, this is going to be soooo good! That being said, if you enjoy books about sweet, small town love, family, friendships, and second chances when it comes to finding love again, I suggest grabbing a copy of this book. This is one of my top 5 favorite books of the year and I have a feeling I am going to going right back and reading it all over again because it gives off all those feels we romance readers crave in our novels. Even more, this may be Meghan's best book yet (and for me, that's saying a lot because I have love each and every one of her books to pieces).

    Fun, heartwarming and full of emotion, That Second Chance is one of Meghan Quinn’s best books! From the prologue on, the story had me hooked! Griffin and Ren’s story was exciting, full of hope and so much more, I was swooning the entire time I read it! From the main characters to the entire Knightly family, from Ren and her parents, to the town of Port Snow itself, this story packed a punch! The Knightly Brothers are here people...be ready to be swept away by every last one of them!

If you've read Quinn's Dating by Numbers series, particularly the second book in the series, Two Wedding Crashers, then you'll be familiar with the town of Port Snow and the Knightly brothers. Quinn said that these four brothers would all be getting their own stories, but when that was going to happened remained up in the air. Now aft *I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.* ATTENTION EVERYONE! I have a new Meghan Quinn series to scream about! If you've read Quinn's Dating by Numbers series, particularly the second book in the series, Two Wedding Crashers, then you'll be familiar with the town of Port Snow and the Knightly brothers. Quinn said that these four brothers would all be getting their own stories, but when that was going to happened remained up in the air. Now after a little over a year of waiting, we are finally getting to see what these brothers are all about and my excitement could not be contained once I started this book!Two years ago, Griffin Knightly lost his wife unexpectedly and believes that her death was due to a curse that had been put on him and his three brothers. To keep from going through that same loss again, he closes his heart off to love and refuses to let himself date any of the women in town. But his plan to stay single is shot to hell when Ren Winters comes crashing—literally—into Port Snow. Griffin refuses to give her the time of day, but Ren  is determined to get under Griffin's armor...and it's only a matter of time until he gives in.It's been a while since I read a small town romance that gave me so many warm and fuzzy feelings and had me looking like a clown with the cheesy ass grin I had on my face while reading. This book had me wanting to get in my car and drive up to some small coastal town and just stay there for a while. I absolutely adore the town of Port Snow and all the people that inhabit it. These townspeople cracked me up while reading this book because they were always gossiping about Ren and Griffin and starting the most wild rumors about them and I was so entertained by their messy behavior. I also have a new book family that I completely adore and wish to be adopted by! The Knightly family stole my heart and it was never a boring time when everyone got together. Then we have our couple, Griffin and Ren. Griffin is a just the perfect, small-town, boy-next-door type of hero. He was always there to help anyone who needed it around town and he had so much pride for his little town. But I gotta say, Griffin frustrated me at times because he was letting the idea of a stupid little curse hold him back from being happy again and I so wanted to slap some sense into him. Luckily Ren had no problem with knocking some common sense into this broody hero. Ren was like a ray of sunshine to Griffin's cloudy day and she never let Griffin's sour mood drive her away. Ren too has gone through her fair share of struggles which is why she was such a good match for Griffin because she understood that need of starting over and getting a second chance at life. The romance is a slow-burning one and I swear I almost died from all the angst. There was one particular scene where I though Griffin and Ren were finally gonna have their moment and I was holding my breath the whole time and then something interrupted them and I swear to god I screeched so loud. I've never been so stressed in my life by a first kiss scene! All in all, That Second Chance was everything I wanted in a small town romance and I'm excited for what's to come next in this series. I have high hopes for our next Knightly brother and I can't wait to learn more about this grumpy hero.

    3.5 starsNice one, with thankfully no man-ho hero in sight. The romance was slow to take off with more emphasis laid on developing a connection between h/H in the form of a friendship. The heroine is new in town and rescued from a moose driven car accident by the hero Griffin a volunteer fire-fighter. The hero lost his wife two years back and fears their family has a love curse and is very hesitant to accept anything more. This was nice and sweet.

It was a moment when it downloaded on my kindle! Alright all that aside, I was excited to read this! If I would have known how flipping awesome and amazing this book was, I would have kicked and screamed earlier! I can't express enough at how much I enjoyed this read!!The beginning stars of FUN, laughter, joy and celebration. After all the brothers are in New Orleans, celebrating the last brother to turn 21. All fun and games until you land in the hands of a palm reader (no pun intended). After that, all you can do it try and move on from everything. So beware of your heart at the beginning.Now we get to my favorite part of the book, I kid you not. Ren is the ULTIMATE HEROINE! This part involves a suicidal Moose, one sexy volunteer firefighter (Griffin), a jack-in-the-box heroine & the hero who carries her (almost throwing his back out) and saving the day by getting her a shirt, which she accept in the best hysteria possible. You will seriously love this scene!!When Ren finally gets down to going to her new place, new town, new START, she get's wit of the Knightly curse. Who believes in those anyways! Then this: Should I thank him for his services? Ask him out? See if he wants to be my Tarzanlike nurse?Reading this is like living it, that's how much the words flow and you feel like you're in the story! What I love most about Ren is that she is grabbing life by the horns. The needs and excitement of starting over, it's catchy! She is also the new Algebra teacher! And when Ren finds herself seeing a Griffin look-alike but with different hair all around the town especially places like IN HER LIFE. She is thrown back!Griffin is the oldest brother who works full time at the Landing a place his family own & volunteers as a firefighter. I am going to give you a sec here...............aaaand we are back. Okay so, not only is he sweet by working with his family, taking care of his brothers and everyone around him, but he also actually saves lives too. What makes my heart hurt for him is that, in spite of all, he carried the biggest burden on his shoulders. The pain unimaginable *sigh*"Cupid hit my little brother with a giant moose. Oh, this is so wonderful."Back to new beginning and living. Ren jumps right in, I mean it isn't that big and so she doesn't have a big pond to swim in, but something about Griffin pulls at her heart strings. She just has to learn to not say something stupid every time they converse. There has to be a reason he is always so busy, so many things to do...sadly if she only knew that those things is what helps him not remember or go home to an empty lonely and silent home. *my heart* but these two are so sweet and cute together, the chemistry is off the charts...gah I loved all the side characters too but my favorite had to be the hero and heroine! The story line is SO GOOD GUYS! Every chapter, words just flow!! You'll see when you read it. I look forward to more in the series!! After-all there is 4 brothers and a sister!! (I might be looking forward to Rogan's story...yes/no? p.s. beware SLOW BURN pain, good kind, but I was on my toes glaring at the screen...do it...do it...! Again, the good kind!!Sorry this ran a little long but I immensely enjoyed this story & will be getting a paperback so I can re-read!! 5 PLUS PLUS & HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
