Review: Second Chances (Destiny’s Desire #1) by Kathy Ivan
Second Chances has an intriguing premise and if you are looking for a story about soul mates and closure in grief, give this one a shot. Ultimately it just didn’t captivate me, so GraveTells says eh, whatever.

The premise for this book caught my eye, but its execution fell short for me. The plot line had me confused as to exactly who was supposed to be reunited and to what end. The dreams show that Ryan’s brother needed something from him and that it was “now or never”. I never did catch why that was and when the request was fulfilled, you almost couldn’t tell. I just didn’t really see the point of that part.
I appreciated that sex in this book was more sensual than straight up erotic and was more about love than just sex for the sake of sex. They’re married so that makes sense, but I still appreciated it. There was a predictable part, but it had little-to-no impact on the story and was kind of abrupt in its placement within the plot.
Lots of little things didn’t quite add up to me though, and several errors such as misused or entirely missing words got to me after a while. Overall this book was just a little weird and nonsensical to me in the long run.
