Review- Second Chance by Katie Kacvinsky

Summary-

Can two drastically different, imperfect people be perfect for each other?

It’s been four months since Gray and Dylan have seen each other. Dylan’s been traveling in Europe, while Gray has college, baseball, and a life rooted in one place. Gray’s determined to forget Dylan, the girl he fell in love with in First Comes Love. Besides, how do you make a relationship work with an independent loner?

Just when he decides he’s over her, Dylan makes an unexpected entrance back into his life, hoping their steamy romance can start right where it left off. Gray realizes you can tell your mind to do one thing, but you can’t always convince your heart to follow. Dylan realizes she finally has to make a choice between freedom and her relationship with Gray.

Hilarious, intense, inspiring, and emotional, Second Chance shows that love is a journey, and there are never clear road signs or maps to guide you along. You can only navigate with your heart.

Review-

Second Chance is the sequel to First Comes Love. I'd read First Comes Love a few months back and thought it was a stand alone with a decent ending. Though it did leave you wanting for more. So I was pleasantly surprised to see Second Chance come out. I really liked Gray and Dylan so I was quite excited to see where they're stories were leading to.

Second Chance starts off a few months after First Comes Love. Dylan has been traveling in Europe while Gray is in college trying and not succeeding with getting over Dylan. Just when he thinks he's over her Dylan makes an impulsive decision and goes to see Gray. This puts a major dent in Gray's plans to get over Dylan because try as he may he can't help being pulled in her web.

One of the major reasons I like this series is because of Gray and Dylan. They are so real and intense. Each one of them has their own set of flaws yet they get each other perfectly. You get to understand their feelings and emotions more in depth than the previous book. Their journey is exhilarating and intoxicating.

You also get to meet a great set of secondary characters in this book. Combine that with Dylan's randomness and Gray's sarcasm it makes for a great read. Though there were times I found myself frustrated with their behavior. But things just were going in such a way that you could justify it. It was heartbreaking.

Katie Kacvinky's writing style is just so elegant and beautiful and mesmerizing. It is one of the first things in the book which completely pulled me in. She is a fabulous author who brings the book and characters to life. The ending to Second Chance has left me desperately craving for more. Luckily there IS a third book called Finally Forever in which I hope we finally get a happy ever after for Dylan and Gray.
