Series-Second Chances Book #1
Publication Date- August 26th, 2013
On the outside, Liberty Davis appeared to have it all…a loving family, a tight knit circle of friends, and a bright future ahead of her. Everything was perfect. That is until her brother tragically took his own life, turning her whole world upside down.
Left to pick up the pieces of her broken family, Liberty is faced with focusing all of her attention on helping her parents cope with the loss of their son, while putting her own life on the back burner. But what no one seems to realize is that she is just as broken inside.
Now, four years later, twenty year old Liberty is taking back the reins of her life. She leaves behind everything she’s ever known, hoping to make a fresh start…one where she isn’t faced with the constant reminder that her brother is nothing more than faded memory. What she didn’t expect to find along the way was Shayne.
Tall, dark and tattooed, Shayne Thompson has developed quite a reputation for being a player. Despite everyone’s negative perception, Liberty still finds herself drawn to him. When she learns that Shayne knows all too well what it feels like to lose someone you love, she finds that they have a lot more in common than just a physical attraction.
When Liberty discovers a secret from Shayne’s past that threatens to tear them apart, she begins to question everything she’s ever felt for him. Will Liberty choose to follow her heart or will she give up the one person who finally made her feel whole again?

I really enjoyed this book I was hooked from the start and didn't put it down until I finished but all the way through it I was like ohh shit I know whats going to happen..oh god please dont happen ahhhh.At the start I was like Awww Brett you are perfect and think uhmm Shane who? You cant possibly out do Brett I mean C'mon!..Next thing I know I love Shane and Brett meh he has been pushed aside haha He gets on my nerves later on in the book, Brett is a lovely guy and everything but just not the guy for Liberty.
This was a quick,fast paced, heart-breaking story with a twist that can ruin it all..
