My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed the story of Brad and Mary. They were both so likable and relatable. I like how the author wove the storyline, inserting moments from the past into the present situation. Although it is a short read, you will not fall short on finding the emotion in the story. I was only going to begin the book but ended up reading it in one sitting . A very sweet story about finding love in second chances.

I truly enjoyed this second chance romance. The characters were completely loveable. I also felt that the storyline was completely believable. I also loved that I could feel the butterflies between Brad and Mary even though they were years out of high school. I know that I could relate to misunderstandings in high school. I love that this misunderstanding is given the chance to be set right. More importantly I love that you could feel their emotions jump off the page. If there is one thing this story definitely had going for it was that the author is able to pull you in to it. I found myself thinking about my own high school experiences and wondering how I would handle it if the opportunity presented itself to correct these understandings. It definitely got me thinking about how time changes people and how in as many ways as you change you might also stay the same. I loved this second chance romance!

A story about two people reuniting after humiliation, heartbreak, and vindictive behavior broke them apart. Reckless Heart is a second chance romance. The author takes a while to actually get to the root of the back story. Majority of this story is written over a day, with a lot of flashbacks.
Mary and Brad secretly had a thing for one another when they were growing up. That is till Mary crushed his heart by humiliating him by going for his best friend in front of all of their friends. Yet 10 years later he still feels protective of her. He fights a battle within himself while they spend a day together. Mary, freshly single, still feels an attraction to Brad, but feels she doesn’t deserve him after what she did. How these two navigated the day they spent together was sweet.
Does Brad forgive her?
Does Mary want to be with him?
The author put together a story that had all its working parts. It felt a little lost at times in the beginning, but that was cleaned up as the book went on. I liked the story that was presented. It makes one dwell on their own past and memories.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sometimes, impetuous choices we make as teens have long-lasting consequences. This is a story about second chances, ten years later. The hero and the heroine are amazing characters. Readers get to travel with them on a journey of self reflection. Readers get to witness the main characters stand up for themselves in ways they never had before.

This author is truly gifted, in all that they do and create. I loved this first book in this series, and this one was no different. I loved the connection ties to the previous installment. This truly was an impacting, good read.

The book was deep with feeling. Powerful with emotions and tangles of the heart. Mary and Brad were two souls with connections from the previous books, and I was rooting for them. Mary was carefree, but full of life and heart. Brad, had a troubled past, but wanted something he felt he could not reach. Pain of the past intercepts and causes walls, but to embrace a future, they must work through those feelings of the past and think about what the now and future could be, if they trust each other as well as themselves, if they let it. Beautiful writing. Great character depth as well as development. Of course the author has a way with the words they write and create. Emotional and powerful. A great read. I loved it all, truly!

This book was such a joy to read, and as well to get lost in. I really love the writing that this author does in all of their books. Highly recommend this must read book. series, and author! All are a joy to read!

Reckless Heart is the second instalment in the Second Chance Romance Book series by the talented Jane Suen. It is a wonderful, sweet, clean, feelgood, second chance contemporary romance. As expected from this skilled author, Ms. Suen has once again delivered a story full of emotion, touching and tender moments, friendship, family dynamics, angsty misunderstandings, endearing characters, nasty ex’s, matchmaking, drama, hope, healing, and much more.
This is Mary and Brad’s story- we met these characters previously in Book One, as Mary is Katie’s (MFC from Book #1) older sister, and Brad was also a guest at the wedding (in Book #1). He and Mary share a complicated and somewhat painful past. Having been friends at school they share many fond memories, but there were also secret feelings that were never divulged- and when hearts were broken it tore them apart. Heartache and life led them in different directions- but now, ten years later, fate has brought them back together. Old feelings resurface, simmering embers reignite, and hope blossoms. But will past hurt, miscommunications, and resentment cost them their second chance at finding love and happiness? This is definitely well worth the read to find out…
I love Ms. Suen’s books/stories, but especially her wonderful characters. I loved getting to know Mary and Brad better and following them on their story. The characters are all so well-developed- cleverly crafted into realistic and believable individuals with their own unique personalities, quirks and flaws. Including the secondary characters- most of whom are recurring characters from book one. I love that Laurie continues with her sneaky (and clever) matchmaking schemes. She’s a great friend. I love how quirky and likeable the characters are (except the ones we are meant to not like)…
Another great read from Ms. Suen- can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next…
Happy Reading!

Thank you, Jane Suen!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reckless Heart is one of my all-time favourite stories by Jane. I really enjoy her writing. This engaging emotional tale has all the feels. It is a short story that is a sweet second chance romance. I read the book in one sitting as the story just called to me and the characters were wonderful likeable and well developed. It has everything to delight the sense and keep the pages turning. With high emotions, angst, steam, misunderstandings, pain and hurt are just some of what you get. My only wish once again is that it was longer.

Mary is ready to embrace her new life as a sexy single woman and has her sights set on a certain someone. However, it may be more difficult than she thought.

Brad returns for his sister’s wedding and has mixed emotions seeing his lost crush. Does he have it in him to relive the pain from the past and move forward?

You will have to read this beautiful tale to see what happens. A perfect present for someone for Christmas.

This one of those stories that will have you riding the emotion roller coaster. Early crushes but another got in the way. Now they have a second chance. Will they make this work? Will they overcome the baggage? A beautiful story of Mary and Brad that is so well-written. It truly felt like you were there sharing it will friends (kind of like Laurie). They writing is real, heartfelt and you can feel their issues. You can feel them going through relationship struggles and joy. The characters are well-developed. It was great to have Katie, Chase, Timmy, and others from ‘This Time Around’ make an appearance. The descriptions make the town sound like any small town, USA. A beautiful second chance romance that you must read.
