amber review 4 Stars

I’m a total goner when it comes to second chance romances. I love them! There is just nothing like watching two people who loved and lost, find love again. When it’s two people that never thought that they would be lucky enough to find love with the other? Even better!

Natalie is no stranger to heartbreak. She loved Chase when she was a young girl, but he only saw her as his little sister’s best friend and rejecting her when Natalie finally got brave enough to reveal her feelings. Since then she has been trying to move forward toward her dreams of becoming a nurse and find a love that will value and cherish her. However, she learned the hard way that finding that wasn’t so easy; case in point the loser ex-husband that left her with a huge historic house and no money.

Chase has stayed away from Divine Island and the girl he never thought he was enough for til now. He’s home temporarily after his father has a health scare. What he doesn’t expect is to find Natalie as his new landlord, nor does he expect that the undeniable attraction that he doesn’t want to fight any longer.

This was a sweet, funny and enjoyable read for me. It wasn’t perfect but it was solid and I definitely look forward to returning to Divine Island again soon! 


Chase rubbed her feet, letting her know he was still awake. She didn’t think he’d be able to fall asleep sitting up the way he was. He asked, “Do you still hurt bad?”

She shook her head, with the blanket held up to her chin. “Not really. I’m just stiff. I’m sure this couch isn’t helping.”

“Can I see?” he asked.

Natalie nodded, and Chase pulled the blanket to one side, exposing her leg. In deference to the light bandaging, she’d worn only a large, oversized T-shirt. The backs of her bare thighs were stretched across his legs.

“I was watching when they bandaged you up,” he said, peering at her leg with careful movements. “It didn’t look too bad.”

“Was that before or after you told the doctor we were engaged?”

He smirked. “You heard that, did you?”

She nodded.

“I did what I had to do.”

He rubbed her foot again, and then his hand slid up to her ankle, his fingertips like a feather’s touch against her skin.

Her eyes snapped to his, and they were heated, his eyes shining. His voice lowered. “God, I want you.”

Natalie swallowed hard and felt a shiver of pleasure that travelled through her body before settling between her thighs. “You rejected me once, remember?”

“Wanting you and rejecting you are not mutually exclusive. I’ve always wanted you, Nat.”

Natalie searched his eyes. “It’s difficult for me to believe that.”

He made direct eye contact and looked determined to prove it to her. “You tell me if this hurts?” he asked.

She nodded slowly, her tongue darting out to lick her lips.

He kept his eyes on her, taking his time as he slid his hand up her leg with a dexterity that the surgeons at the hospital would envy. She wondered idly when he would stop his ascent, and prayed that he wouldn’t. Because this was exactly what she’d always wanted.

His hands on her.

Can’t wait for more?
