This one gave me warm fuzzies as I read it. 

A man stepping up and raising his younger siblings after his parents die.  I love rom coms and love even more second chance stories.  It was a sweet read.  I obviously liked Drake but I also liked Morgan.  She was tenacious and scrappy.

It was a fun read through most of it.  I don’t really get the competition to buy a building, but then again I guess you can do what you want to when it is your building to sell.  I love watching physical comedy on TV but I don’t think it translates as well into a book.  I probably would have laughed out loud if this was a movie, but I only half smiled during these scenes.

If you love second chances and romance, you should give this one a chance. 

About the book

Two entrepreneurs compete for a property but secure the biggest win of all—each other—in this second chance romantic comedy by USA Today bestselling author Sharon C. Cooper.

Spoiled, fickle, and prissy are only a few of the adjectives that have been used to describe Morgan Redford. Though she’s never had to worry about money, she’s determined to make a name for herself on her own terms. Her new venture won’t be an epic fail like her former professional cuddling service or the short-lived pet hotel. This time, through the nonprofit she cofounded, Morgan is doing something meaningful—helping teens who are aging out of foster care—and she’s got her eye on a property that could house these kids. But the competition is steep, and one of the bidders is someone she never expected. . . .

When real estate developer Drake Faulkner learns that his ex—the one who ghosted him years ago—is a potential buyer for the property his eccentric mentor is selling, his competitive streak amps up. No way is he letting her win the property he wants. Bitter? Yes. Petty? Probably. But his mentor has a stipulation: potential buyers must participate in an Ironman competition of sorts for the property. Drake refuses to play along with this ridiculous demand, until he discovers Morgan has signed up. If Little Miss Can’t Run a Block Without Gasping for Air is doing it, he will too. But as the gauntlet of games heats up and forces them to face the past, they are met with a pull that feels all too familiar.

Now, if only they could keep their eyes on the prize instead of on each other—but who’s to say they can’t do both?
