Last Second Chance by Caisey Quinn

When Stella Jo Chandler gets an offer to work at the Second Chance Ranch celebrity rehab facility right after graduating from Texas A&M, she’s tempted to turn it down. She wants to help real people with real problems, not spoiled celebrities going on vacation for publicity. But growing up on her family’s ranch left her with a love of horses that draws her to the opportunity. How bad can babysitting a bunch of strung out celebrities be? 

What she didn’t count on was being roped into a tangled mess with infamous rocker and three-time rehab drop out Van Ransom on her first day. And she sure didn’t expect to feel the overwhelming attraction that pulls her to the man who has more issues than she can count on both hands. Like the hotel rooms and tour buses he’s famous for trashing, the havoc he could wreak on Stella’s heart would be irreparable.

Van isn’t at Second Chance for publicity or because he’s suffering from “exhaustion”. He’s on the brink of destruction, and he needs the kind of help Stella isn’t sure she can give. But without her, he'll lose everything. Because he’s on his last second chance.

I was pretty hyped up when I did the Meet Van Blitz. Can't get hotter than a tattooed-badass-musician. Last Second Chance definitely delivered. The chemistry between Stella Jo and Van was off the pages. They couldn't keep their hands (and lips lol) off each other from the get go. Wasn't the biggest fan of the insta-lurrrv-connection but it wasn't the worst I've seen. I found myself somewhat disappointed that Stella Jo wasn't able to hold off on him a little longer--where's the will-power these days? From their first encounter onwards, it seemed like every time they came in contact with each other, they weren't able to do much more than maul each other in every way possible. The scenes were plentiful and always hot, if not a bit cliche. They managed to keep their hands off each other long enough for them to go through the typical break-up-before-they-realize-they-can't-live-without-each-other--that letter from Stella Jo was heart-wrenching. I also found that their pasts/"stories" were twisted enough to leave you wondering if Stella Jo should have been in therapy, too. I felt as if the two of them were even in terms of being messed up. There was just enough story to keep me happy. Last Second Chance went through all the motions including a happily ever after that was a little too sweet for me but was a great story, nonetheless!
