Top Ten Tuesday: Thank Goodness for Second Chances

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is...

Thank Goodness for Second Chances!

So, this isn't the official topic, but I have recently read quite a few second chance romances, and just felt the need to share.

I love romances, and my favorite are second chance romances. It can be a husband and wife trying to save their marriage, first loves reunited, or a couple realizing they made a mistake after divorcing. No matter the situation, I just adore the idea that the love between these people never faded, that they carried that spark for each other the whole time. They just needed the right conditions for it to reignite.

Below are some recent second chance romances, which I really enjoyed and left me all sorts of happy and hopeful.

Do you have a favorite second chance romance?

  4. I LOVE second chance romance. It's one of my top tropes in romance and "husband and wife trying to save their marriage" is one of the second chance situations I'm always up for. I ain't married but it opens up my eyes the ups and downs in marriage, and prepare me for the future. Oh and one of these days, I really should consider picking up The Girl He Used to Know. I see this book a lot in my GR timeline.

    1. Every time I hear someone is getting divorced, it saddens me. I have never been married, but I firmly believe in the HEA, and really like seeing stories with couples not giving up on each other

    1. I had Roman Crazy on my TBR for quite a while, and I finally listened to the audiobook, and it was just so good. I loved the concept and with Clayton and Bocci involved, there was a ton of humor.

    1. I have been enjoying these second chance romances, which feature flashbacks to the couples' youth. It usually brings in that whole first love thing, and it's very sweet.

    1. I guess when the characters are saving the world, they aren't thinking about their romantic lives as much. Though, wasn't the final Starbound book second chance? And Illuminae too?

  12. I enjoy a good second chance romance as well. I really need to read the Bromance Club. I have a copy. I am one of the black sheep who didn’t love The Ones Who Got Away. I did love Roman Crazy.

    1. I could add a lot more to this list, because I have read so many, but I was sticking to recent reads. I almost never say no to a second chance romance.

  16. I didn't think I was much of a second chance romance kind of person but I've read a few of these on here and loved them so maybe I am. I definitely want to check out the ones I've not read yet like Fumbled and Say You Still Love Me. Hopefully I enjoy them too.

    1. I like Martin's whole series. TK had intrigued me in the first book, so I was glad to get his story too. Martin gave him a great heroine, who was his back in the day girl. So much history there, and big stakes too.

    1. I know your not a big romance reader, but there's something about not giving up on each other, that gets to me every time

  18. The Bromance book Club and also Fumbled are two romance novels I want to try! I have no problems with second chance romances, but they aren't really my kind of read. I don't reach for them. Mostly because it would be very unlikely that it is something that would happen to me xD So it's not the first kind of romance read I reach for.

    1. Hey, you never know. I just like the idea that people can overcome their pasts and forge a new future together. It's idealistic, but really beautiful to me.
