Reviewing and Reading books that were free or are free. You see, I finally caved and bought an eReader. Now I find I can't stop reading all the free books offered on the online market. Despite whether or not the book is a good read or not. In this blog I will weed through all books, whether it was amazing or a grammatically sad excuse for a book, because the point in the end is . . . HEY, IT WAS FREE!

Hey, It's A Blog Tour for "Last Chance" by L.P. Dover
Book 8, in The Second Chances Novels
"Last Chance" by L.P. Dover Genre: Romantic Suspense. 318 pages.
That's all Luke Collins, local bad boy and motocross champion, has to not only find his redemption, but win back the girl he lost. He'll stop at nothing to make her his, even if it means playing dirty.
Lara Jacobs doesn't want her heart broken again and refuses to give Luke a second chance. After he left her after their one night stand, she ran right into the arms of her close friend, Grayson Moore. He's always loved her, and he's determined to make her see he's what she needs.
However, in life nothing goes as planned and tragedy strikes. After a fatal accident nearly claims Lara's life, she's left inside a world she can't remember. Her memories are gone, including those of the men vying for her heart. Grayson sees her loss as a possibility to forget her love for Luke, but Luke sees it as an opportunity to start over. All he wants is one last chance to show her that she's the one he's been in love with all along.
*** An updated version of One Taste has been included in Last Chance with all new scenes. I highly recommend reading it again. ***
I took a chance on "Last Chance" and this novel was amazing! I cried, laughed, smiled, cringed, yelled and jumped for joy while reading this book. Seriously loved every page from beginning to end, L.P. Dover takes you on an emotional roller coaster that will leave you breathless with happiness. If there is one thing Lara Jacobs won't give Luke Collins it's a chance. Lara has had a crush Luke for years but after he has indulged in too many women for Lara to accept she's decided to move on. Luke however knows something when he sees it and all he wants is his chance with Lara. When the opportunity happens and it causes it all to be too real for Luke, he screws up pushing Lara into another mans arms. For a year Luke works to prove he's one last chance but just when Lara concedes to their inherent connection offering him a final chance, an accident happens. Lara loses her memory and with that all traces of her feelings for Luke. Now Luke has to prove who he is, was and should be to Lara or else risk losing her forever. Overall, absolutely loved it. This was my first second chance novel but it certainly won't be my last. I don't normally root for the bad boy to get a second or third or last chance but I was begging Lara to give Luke his chance. Lara was a brilliant and witty character who had me cheering for her HEA, especially with everyone around her having their perfect better halves. I loved the banter between her and Luke, who was perfect, after he stopped with the skanks. Seriously Luke was charming but was truly swoon worthy when he was a mission to win his girl. So if you are looking for a story that is definitely dramatic and at times suspenseful, but is at its core about giving love a chance, you'll love this book.

“Why can’t I go in there and tell her I’m sorry? She needs to hear it from me.”
“No, she doesn’t because she won’t believe it. You need to do a lot more than tell her you’re sorry. Actions speak louder than words. And until you can show everyone you’ve changed, it’s best you stay away from her. It’ll only make things worse.”
“What if I go in there anyway?” I questioned, crossing my arms over my chest. I didn’t want to fight Evan, but I was getting desperate. I needed her forgiveness, for her to know I never meant to hurt her.
Evan huffed and closed his eyes. “You’ll have to go through me first. Lara doesn’t want to see you. She’s with someone else now.”
It was as if someone had sucker punched me in the gut, the air being ripped out of my lungs as I took the hit. Summer groaned and I glared at her. “Is that true?”
“Yes, but I don’t see how that is any of your business. She’s happy, so leave her be.”
“Fuck that,” I shouted. “I’m going inside.” I tried to push past Evan, but he blocked me. We faced off with each other, the tension rising.
Summer stepped between us with a hand on each of our chests. “Guys, this is stupid. You’re friends.”
I scoffed and backed away. “That’s where I beg to differ,” I said, glaring at Evan. “If our situations were reversed and it was Summer inside, I’d let you go to her. I would give you the benefit of the doubt and accept that you’ve changed. But you’re not going to do that, are you?”
Evan’s face softened and he sighed. “I would, brother, but this night is special for Summer and Lara. The last thing they need is you and Grayson battling it out. I have no doubt he’ll come after you if you go in there.”
I faltered, the anger welling in my chest. “Fucking Grayson? That’s who she’s with?”
“Can you blame her? He was there for her, after everything you put her through,” Summer said.
Peering down at her, I hoped she could see the determination in my face. “You tell her it’s not over. I’m not going to give up.” With those final words, I jumped in my truck and sped out of the parking lot. The thought of Grayson touching her made me so goddamn furious. I didn’t care if she was with him . . . I wasn’t going to give up.
